Scripture Reading – Romans 8:31-39
31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? 33 Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? 36 As it is written,

“For your sake we are being killed all the day long;
we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Pastoral Prayer 

This is Amazing Grace
Verse 1:
Who breaks the power of sin and darkness, whose love is mighty and so much stronger
the King of glory, the King above all kings
Who shakes the whole earth with holy thunder, who leaves us breathless in awe and wonder
the King of glory, the King above all kings

Chorus:
This is amazing grace, this is unfailing love
that You would take my place, that You would bear my cross
You lay down Your life, that i would be set free
oh, Jesus i sing for, all that You’ve done for me

Verse 2:
Who brings our chaos back into order, who makes the orphan a son and daughter
the King of glory, the King of glory
Who rules the nations with truth and justice shines like the sun in all of its brilliance
the King of glory, the King above all kings

Bridge:
worthy is the Lamb Who was slain
worthy is the King Who conquered the grave (x3)
worthy is the Lamb Who was slain worthy, worthy, worthy

Nothing But the Blood
Verse 1
What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again? Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Chorus
Oh! precious is the flow That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know, Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Verse 2
For my pardon, this I see, Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
For my cleansing this my plea, Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Verse 3
This is all my hope and peace, Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
This is all my righteousness, Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Sermon
Main Text: Colossians 2:4-10

4 I say this in order that no one may delude you with plausible arguments. 5 For though I am absent in body, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the firmness of your faith in Christ.

Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, 7 rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.

8 See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ. 9 For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, 10 and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority.

Colossians 2:7 (NASB)

having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude.

This Glorious Grace
Verse 1:
God I need You, I need You, I need You
Every breath, every pulse of my heart
Christ have mercy, have mercy, let mercy abound
I need You, I need You now

Chorus:
God pour out Your grace, glorious grace
That I would be held by Your perfect embrace
I am undeserving, You are high and worthy
All of my praise for this glorious grace

Verse 2:
God I’m longing, I’m longing to see You
In Your presence all darkness will fade
Shine Your glory, Your glory, let glory surround
I’m longing to see You now

Bridge:
God Your grace like ris -ing seas
Has swal – lowed death and sin in me
Glory to my God who saves
Jesus Christ my glorious grace

Verse 3:
God I worship, I worship, I worship You,
For Your glory, my all in all
You are worthy, You’re worthy, You’re worthy
I worship, I worship You, God I need You, I need You now!

How Great Thou Art
Verse 1:
O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder,
Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made;
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed.

Chorus:
Then sings my soul, My Savior God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Savior God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great you are! How great you are!

Verse 2:
And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing;
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.

Verse 3:
When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation,
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart.
Then I shall bow, in humble adoration,
And there proclaim: “My God, how great You are!”
