All Things Rise

By Samuel Yoder
© 2015 Mercy / Vineyard Publishing

Verse 1
God how beautiful Your Holy Word
That formed the worlds in such goodness
O the shame that we would spurn it all
To turn and fall into darkness

Verse 2
God we'll sing how through Your Son You turned
This loss and hurt into glory
How when scorned in death You raised Him up
His gain's become the whole world's story

Let all things rise and bless Your name
All things made right and new again
O Lord our God Your goodness
Is free and boundless
Is reaching endless through it all

Verse 3
And on this road with every step we take
Your faithfulness is our portion
You've prepared a city bright and fair
Whose gates forever stay open

Verse 4
Son of God in You we've taken up
The way of love's occupation
O the joy to share in Your reward
The stunning turn of new creation

Let all things rise and bless Your name
All things made right and new again
O Lord our God Your goodness
Is free and boundless
Is reaching endless through it all

Just as You promised God Your Son was raised up
In Him we'll follow in Him we'll all be raised up

O Lord you've made yourself a home
Heaven and earth forever one
All things once sown in weakness
You raise in promise
Your beauty arches above it all

Holy Spirit

Verse 1
There's nothing worth more that will ever come close
No thing can compare You're our living hope
Your Presence

Verse 2
I've tasted and seen of the sweetest of loves
Where my heart becomes free and my shame is undone
In Your Presence Lord

Holy Spirit You are welcome here
Come flood this place and fill the atmosphere
Your glory God is what our hearts long for
To be overcome by Your Presence Lord

Let us become more aware of Your Presence
Let us experience the glory of Your goodness
(To chorus)

Verse 1
You are here moving in our midst
I worship You, I worship You
You are here working in this place
I worship You, I worship You

Way Maker, Miracle Worker
Promise Keeper, Light in the darkness
My God that is who You are

Verse 2
You are here touching every heart
I worship You, I worship You
You are here turning lives around
I worship You, I worship You

That is who You are

As Children

Jeremy Riddle

As children we come with arms open wide
So desp'rate for You so in need of Your life
May our praise fill Your ears
May our cries touch Your heart
We need Your presence
To change who we are
So we ask

Come Holy Spirit, Come in Your power
Come inhabit our praise
Come now and reign in our lives
Come Holy Spirit, Come like the wind
Come be Lord of our hearts
Come fill Your church once again

You said if we asked for bread
That You'd give us no stone
So in all of our hearts
God we kneel and we groan

Beautiful Things

Lisa Gungor | Michael Gungor
© 2009 songs

Verse 1
All this pain
I wonder if I'll ever find my way
I wonder if my life could really change
At all

Verse 2
All this earth
Could all that is lost ever be found
Could a garden come up from this ground
At all

You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of the dust

Verse 3
All around
Hope is springing up from this old ground
Out of chaos life is being found
In You

You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of the dust

You make me new You are making me new
You make me new You are making me new

You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of the dust

Sermon Notes

By Jeff Faust

The Dull-Headed Disciples

How God develops Us

  1. God invites you before you’re ‘ready’.
    • Luke 9:1-2
      (1) One day Jesus called together His twelve disciples and gave them power and authority to cast out all demons and heal all diseases. (2) Then He sent them out to tell everyone about the Kingdom of God and to heal the sick.
    • Progress > Perfection

  2. God corrects you when you’re wrong.
    • Luke 9:46-48
      (46) Then His disciples began arguing about which of them was the greatest.(47) But Jesus knew their thoughts, so He brought a little child to His side. (48) Then He said to them, “Anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf welcomes me, and anyone who welcomes me also welcomes my Father who sent me.  Whoever is the least among you is the greatest.”
    • Luke 9:54
      (54) When James and John saw this, they said to Jesus, “Lord, should we call down fire from heaven to burn them up?” (55) But Jesus turned and rebuked them. (56) So they went to another village.

  3. God reassures you in your doubt.
    • Luke 24:38-40
      (38) “Why are you frightened?” He asked. “Why are your hearts filled with doubt? (39) Look at my hands. Look at my feet. You can see that it’s really me. Touch me and make sure that I am not a ghost, because ghosts don’t have bodies, as you see that I do.” (40) As He spoke, He showed them His hands and His feet.
