26th Sunday After Pentecost- Bible Sunday

Opening Welcome: Join with me in reading Psalm 100:

Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth!

Serve the LORD with gladness! Come into his presence with singing!

Know that the LORD, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his;

we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!

For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.

Let us come together in worship, entering His gates with Thanksgiving, and His courts with praise!

Songs of Praise & Worship:

 

Worship Leader:

The words of our opening hymn came from a lad only 16 years of age, in England, in 1826. His name was Henry Alford. He came from a long line of clergymen. His first charge, after graduation from Trinity College, Cambridge, was in Wymeswold, Leicestershire. His gentle disposition, cheerful attitude and sheer genius catapulted him to fame and high honor. He was a versatile man: an artist, an organist and singer, composer of verses and a very talented speaker. His literary ability was climaxed with the completion of The Greek Testament, a commentary of four volumes, which required 20 years of hard labor.

It is reported that he loved to mingle with the common man. He never seemed to lose his vision of the pit from which he, too, had been lifted. He was thankful. In the fall of 1844, while he was at Wymeswold, his first charge, the people of this hamlet decided to have a festival, rejoicing in the abundant harvest already gathered into their barns. For this particular occasion, the people sang a song by Alford had written a song which has been sung, perhaps millions of times during Thanksgiving celebrations:

“Come, ye thankful people, come, Raise the song of harvest-home.”

As we sing this inspiring song, let us rededicate ourselves to a life of thankfulness. Let us learn to see and appreciate the little things that we so often overlook.

“Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Ephesians 5:20

Bless the Lord O my soul!

Songs of Praise & Worship:

 

Worship Leader: Our opening hymn today is based primarily on the rich imagery of Psalm 104:1-7: “Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, you are very great. You are clothed with honor and majesty, wrapped in light as with a garment. You stretch out the heavens like a tent, you set the beams of your chambers on the waters, you make the clouds your chariot, you ride on the wings of the wind, you make the winds your messengers, fire and flame your ministers. You set the earth on its foundations, so that it shall never be shaken. You cover it with the deep as with a garment; the waters stood above the mountains. At your rebuke they flee; at the sound of your thunder they take to flight.”

True worship is really defined by the importance of God in our daily lives. This is why Paul tells us, “I appeal to you, therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.” (Romans 12:1) Worship overflows from hearts surrendered to Christ.

Lord, may we fully surrender ourselves to Worship you today, and every day, for You are worthy of our thanks and praise. May we be true believers who worship You in spirit and in truth.

Your righteousness reaches to the skies Lord, You who have done great things. I will praise you for your faithfulness O my God.”

These words from Psalm 71 is a testimony by its writer of what God has done for us. As we gather for worship today, these words still ring true as we praise Jesus-our Way Maker, miracle worker, promise keeper, and the light in a darkened world.

As we gather to worship our Great God this World-wide communion Sunday, hear these words from Revelation 7

I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.” All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying: “Amen! Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!”

Men and women of faith, let us join as the people of God to praise Him!

Hear these words from Isaiah 6:1-3

In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple.

Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.

And one called to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!”

As Isaiah saw a vision, and heard the hosts singing as one, let us join together and proclaim, “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty!”
