G’day! Welcome to Partakers Wednesday Worship on 9th of November, 2011!

Opening Prayer

We start with this brief prayer!

O Merciful Father,
We thank you that you are a loving God!
We thank you for the gift of your Son Jesus Christ!
We thank you for the gift of the Holy Spirit!
We thank you for life and that we can know you personally!
Amen!

Time to confess our sins! Now we are free to give our God praise, knowing that we have confessed our sins, He has forgiven us and there is no impediment to our praise!

Time of praise with Psalm 134!

Psalm 134

(The Message)

Come, bless God, all you servants of God!
You priests of God, posted to the nightwatch
in God’s shrine,
Lift your praising hands to the Holy Place,
and bless God.
In turn, may God of Zion bless you-
God who made heaven and earth!

My Jesus!

I wonder how you view Jesus Christ! What is your opinion of the man whose very birth splits history into two parts – before his birth and after his birth! This Jesus, the Word of God!

In the beginning, this Jesus the Word, already existed.
This Jesus the Word was with God,
and this Jesus the Word was God!
Jesus the Word existed in the beginning with God.
God created everything through Jesus the Word,
and nothing was created except through Jesus the Word!
Jesus the Word gave life to everything that was created,
and his very life brought light to everyone.
This light, Jesus the Word, shines in the darkness,
and the darkness can never extinguish the light.
That’s Jesus Christ! The man who was and is God!
Jesus Christ who is the visible image of the invisible God.
Jesus Christ who existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation!

Indeed, for through Jesus Christ, God created everything
in the heavenly realms and on earth.
Jesus Christ made the things we can see and the things we can’t see – such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world.
Everything was created through Jesus Christ and for Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together.
Jesus Christ is also the head of the church,
which is his body.
Jesus Christ is the beginning, supreme over all who rise from the dead.
Therefore, Jesus Christ is first in everything.
For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Jesus Christ, and through Jesus Christ alone, God reconciled everything to himself.
Jesus Christ made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of His very own blood on the cross.

That’s my Jesus! My Jesus who is fully divine, fully human, glorious in His death and resurrection! My Jesus who is supreme over all, the creator of all! My Jesus who is my eternal leader, eternal sustainer! My Jesus who has all power and all authority! My Jesus who reconciles me with God, my peace-maker with God and is the one who gives perfect peace!

There is only one Saviour for the world. There will never be another because there is no need of another. This Jesus is coming back as well!!!! But Jesus is not coming back as baby next time but as the living holy Almighty Son of God!

What does Jesus look like now? His close friend John saw him some years after Jesus’ ascension back to the right hand of God! Here is what John saw!

Jesus, dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. The hair on Jesus’ head was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. Jesus’ feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace! Jesus’ voice was like the sound of rushing waters. Jesus’ right hand held seven stars! Coming forth out of Jesus’ mouth was a sharp, double-edged sword. Jesus’ face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.

That was an amazing moment when Jesus beloved friend, John, saw Jesus in all his majesty!

This John, who records these words from Jesus! “It is finished! It is complete! I, King Jesus, am the Alpha and the Omega-the Beginning and the End. To all who are thirsty I, King Jesus, will give freely from the springs of the water of life. All who are victorious will inherit all these blessings, and I, King Jesus, will be their God, and they will be my children.

“But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars-their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulphur. This is the second death.”
“Look! I, King Jesus, am coming soon, bringing my reward with me to repay all people according to their deeds. I, King Jesus, am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”

That’s my Jesus, who called me to follow Him almost 30 years ago now! It has been a rollercoaster ride, but I have always known that He is in charge! Are you one of His followers or are you continuing to be one of His deniers?

Song

Now let us finish up with a song! Today it is Marjorie Reece singing a “Praise Song to Jesus”

Jesus! Jesus!
You are the King of Kings!
Blessed Jesus, Sweet Jesus,
You are my everything.

And, Lord, I love you. I love You.
And I’ll love you more and more.
O Lord, I love you, I love You.
You loved me long before.

Lord, I worship You. I worship You.
You are the Ransomed Lamb.
O Lord, I worship You. I worship You.
You are the Great I Am.

O Lord, I praise You. I praise You.
Praise You for all You’ve done.
O Lord, I praise You. I praise You.
You are God’s Only Son.

Yes, You’re Jesus, blessed Jesus.
You are the King of Kings.
Blessed Jesus, sweet Jesus.
You are my Everything.

And, Lord, I love You. I love You.
And I’ll love You more and more.
Oh, yes, I love You. I love You.
‘Cause You loved me long before.
You loved me long before.

Worship Wednesday

G’day! Welcome to Partakers Wednesday Worship on the 2nd of November 2011.

Order of Service

Opening Prayer

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,

We praise you and give you glory:

We bless you for calling us to be your holy people.

Amen!

 

Continuing on, we now have a song. Today it is

Abigail Miller, singing Lord, I Must Be Yours!

Visit her at: http://www.abigailmiller.com/

(Song originally downloaded at http://www.godlychristianmusic.com)

 

Lord, I must be yours alone.

Teach me I am not my own.

Crush and mould this heart of stone.

In your image make it.

 

Wilful, stubborn, Lord, it’s true-

I do what I want to do.

Let me learn to follow you.

Take my will and break it.

 

From my self I would be free.

Take all my identity,

Fill with your humility.

Seize my pride and shake it.

 

When a helpless wreck I am,

Take me and rebuild the sham

To be like the Living Lamb,

My life, on Him, I stake it.

Bible Talk

The Apostle Paul writing in Philippians 2:3-4 “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.

The Apostle Peter writing in 1 Peter 5:5-6 “All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.

Those verses probably highlight what those who call themselves the Lord’s people are to be and do! Humility! Looking to others first!

Contrast those values to those of the twenty first century society. A society where the prevalent attitude is: “There are no other people. The order is ‘me, me and more me! I am far more important and higher than anyone else!'” This is individualism, an individualism where the individual’s importance is placed higher than all others! Individualism, which is imbued with self-reliance and personal independence. Even when help and compassion are offered, so often there are strings attached and hoops to be jumped through: “If you do this, we will do this for you.” That’s the view in 21st century Western countries such as the USA, UK and Australia. Sadly, it is not just within society that this exists, but also within the church and amongst Christians.

How opposite is that view, compared to the view of Peter and Paul in the Bible reading! It is as if we are denying the basic rule of compassion and mercy, which dictates that we, as Christians, are to be serving others, because they are also humans created in the image of God, loved by God and so should be loved unconditionally by those who proclaim to be God’s people – the Church. Denying that basic need to others is pure unadulterated selfishness and places others below our own selves.

Individualism within the church, lends itself to hypocritical behaviour and attitudes, which are inconsistent with Scripture and behaviour. Individualism, where you as an individual are placed at the front of the queue, is not loving others and not considering others higher than yourself. It certainly could not be construed as serving other people to always place your own desires above all others. There is an old acronym JOY – Jesus first, Others second, Yourself last. So as we live our lives, let us be determined to be counter-cultural, love and serve others, being willing to listen to them and giving them practical support when we can.

Think time

Now a time, where I put before you a couple of questions for you to ponder and think about, before we continue in prayer. Perhaps you could write them down for later.

Q1. In what areas of my life do I usually put myself before other people and sin against them?

Q2. What impact could I make on my church and local community if I was more willing to serve and practically love others, rather than be served and supported by them?

Bryony Prays!

G’day! Welcome to Partakers Wednesday Worship on the 26th of October 2011.

Order of Service

Song: Father God, We Come

Father God, we come with confidence through faith. Father God, we stand before your throne of grace. We can only come, stand before your throne, because Christ has made the way; shed his precious blood as our sacrifice, so we offer you our praise.

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah! The way is open to the Father, hallelujah!

Father God, we come, invited to draw near. Father God, we stand before you without fear. We are welcomed in, to your presence, Lord, as the Spirit leads the way. We will join with Christ, we will join with heav’n,

as we offer you our praise. Father God, we come, hallelujah.

Bible readings

Hebrews 4:14-16 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are-yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

Hebrews 6:19-20 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, where our forerunner, Jesus, has entered on our behalf. He has become a high priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.

Bible Talk – Dean Roberts ( www.deanroberts.net )

Prayer

Blessed Lord, who caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning: help us so to hear them, to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them that, through patience, and the comfort of your holy word, we may embrace and for ever hold fast the hope of everlasting life, which you have given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen

Order of Service

Today on Partakers Wednesday Worship we have special time to lift the nation of England to God, in light of the recent social unrest and riots. I will say a quick prayer, then there will be time for you to offer your own if you so desire, and we will finish with the Lord’s prayer. Thank you.

Father,

We lift to you the situation in England today, with social unrest. Help the politicians, authorities and officials to wisely administer justice! Help them to also protect civilians and the innocents, O God.Father, keep those who are helping to clean up and right the wrong to be safe and for them to use wisdom in making decisions!

Amen

And now a time of silence for you to reflect and offer your own prayers.

Lord in your mercy, hear our prayers!

We now say the Lord Prayers together:

Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your name,

your kingdom come,

your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.

for yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.

Amen.

See you next time on Partakers!  If you have prayer requests, visit www.facewall.co.uk, post your request and we will pray for you.
