Veritas Gathered: Liturgy Recap – August 17, 2014
Welcome to the recap of the songs, hymns and spiritual song of the Veritas worship gathering on August 17, 2014
The Story of Grace and Forgiveness [Genesis 46-50] GENESIS: The Gospel According to Joseph
Song: “Grace Abounds”
C: Praise the Lord! Let all that I am praise the Lord.
L: Don’t put your confidence in powerful people; there is no help for you there. When they breathe their last, they return to the earth, and all their plans die with them. But joyful are those who have the God of Israel as their helper, whose hope is in the Lord their God. He made heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them. He keeps every promise forever.
C: The Lord will reign forever. He will be our God throughout all generations. Praise the Lord!
– Based on Psalm 146
Song: “Everything is Yours”
L: Lord, Jesus, help us to believe with our whole lives that apart from You we can do nothing.
C: We struggle with fear and anxiety when trials come. We battle sin and unbelief and often give in to temptation.
L: Show us daily that we can bring everything to You.
C: In our confession of sins, remind us of your grace and mercy.
L: Help us to believe in the truth of your work on our behalf; your death and sacrifice on the cross for our sins, giving us life and righteousness.
C: Cause us to believe in you and help us to live lives that are dependent upon You, knowing that we find our hope and satisfaction only in You. Amen.
– Based on a prayer from Sojourn Church.
Song: “I Shall Not Want”
:::PASSING OF THE PEACE:::
Commissioning: Pendley’s [Nick Nye]
:::PROCLAMATION OF THE WORD:::
Our Sermon was from Nick Nye on Genesis 46-50
L: Jesus’ death brings us life and this meal reminds us that we are fed by Jesus and forgiven because of Jesus.
C: We rejoice that You have died, have risen, and are now with the Father advocating for us. Amen.
L: With our money, time, and talent we give generously, knowing that through Your Son, Jesus, You have generously given to us.
C: We rejoice that You have given everything and we joyfully give everything back to Your care. Amen.
Song: “Great Is Thy Faithfulness”
Song: “The Love Of God”
Even through we did nothing to deserve it, God has revealed his glory to us, which was shown to us in Love. God made a way for us. God did this through Christ Jesus!!
L: When we think of all this, [the gospel and grace of Jesus] may we fall on our knees and pray to you, our Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. We prayer that you would empower us with inner strength through your Spirit. That Christ would make his home in our hearts as we trust in him. That we would be rooted in God’s love and that we would be given the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.
C: May we experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then we will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory be to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.
– based on Eph 3: 14-21
Song: “Hail The King”
May the God of peace, creator of heaven and earth, giver of life and joy, give you all grace to go from here in the understanding and knowledge of his love for you, as demonstrated by Jesus, His Son and empowered by the Holy Spirit. Peace be with you.
