Welcome & Announcements


Call to Worship | based on Psalm 23

from the Lectionary Sermons Worship Resource Archive. Revised.

We hear the voice of the Shepherd calling his flock!
Let us respond with praise!
We rejoice in the One who leads us beside still waters,
He provides all we need; we shall not want.
Christ our Shepherd shows us the way we should go,
He guides us along the right paths for the sake of his name!
Though all manner of evil befall us, we will not be afraid,
for the Great Shepherd of our souls is with us.
We are never away from the love and mercy of the Lord,
and we shall be with him for ever and ever.

We hear the voice of the Shepherd calling his flock!
Let us respond with praise!

In Christ Alone

Keith Getty & Stuart Townend | ©2001 Thankyou Music

In Christ alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song
This cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My comforter, my all in all –
here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone, who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones he came to save
Till on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on him was laid –
here in the death of Christ I live

There in the ground his body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious day
Up from the grave he rose again
And as he stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me
For I am his and he is mine –
bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life's first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from his hand
Till he returns or calls me home –
here in the power of Christ I'll stand

Meditation 1 | from Philippians 2:5-11

We are gathered to contemplate the Lord Jesus Christ who,
   though he was in the form of God,
   did not consider being equal with God something to exploit.
Instead, he emptied himself completely,
   not only taking on human form, but the form of a slave.

He humbled himself, becoming obedient to the point of death,
   even a humiliating death by torture on a cross of wood.

So God raised him up with great honour,
   and gave him a name above all other names,
   that, at the name of Jesus, everyone—
      in heaven and on earth and even under the earth—
   might bow down,
   and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord
   to the glory of God the Father. Amen.

Our God Alone

John Arndt, David Gungor | The Brilliance Music © 2010

Who formed the mountains and filled the oceans?
Our God alone, our God alone
Who took the dust, breathed life in us?
Our God alone, our God alone
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia (2x)

Who came from heaven for our redemption?
Our God alone, our God alone
Who died for sin that we may live?
Our God alone, our God alone
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia (2x)

Who rose again? Death could not win
Our God alone, our God alone
Who is returning bringing a kingdom?
Our God alone, our God alone

We will worship, we will worship
Our God alone, our God alone
We will worship, we will worship
Our God alone, our God alone
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia (2x)

Corporate Prayer

from “Follow the Example | Patrick” in Celtic Daily Prayer, Volume 2. Revised.

We call all heaven to witness today that we have put on Christ.
We choose no other Lord than the maker of heaven and earth.
This day we walk with him and he will walk with us.

We fasten close to us this day
   the same Jesus who came to us as flesh and blood
   and was himself baptized in the Jordan River.
He died upon a cross to rescue us
   and broke free from death, its conqueror.
He left us, to return the more certainly.

This day we walk with Him and He will walk with us.
We arise today, and put on Christ.

When I Survey the Wondrous Cross

Lyrics: Isaac Watts | Tune (“Hamburg”): Lowell Mason

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died
My richest gain I count but loss
And pour contempt on all my pride

Forbid it Lord that I should boast
Save in the death of Christ my God
All the vain things that charm me most
I sacrifice them to his blood
See from his head, his hands, his feet
Sorrow and love flow mingled down
Did e’er such love and sorrow meet
Or thorns compose so rich a crown

Were the whole realm of nature mine
That were an offering far too small
Love so amazing, so divine
Demands my soul, my life, my all

Testimony

Scripture | Mark 8:27-30 (NIV)

Jesus and his disciples went on to the villages around Caesarea
Philippi. On the way he asked them, “Who do people say I am?” They
replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still
others, one of the prophets.” “But what about you?” he asked. “Who
do you say I am?” Peter answered, “You are the Messiah.” Jesus
warned them not to tell anyone about him.

Homily | The Way of the Cross

Paul Spilsbury – Academic Dean; Professor of New Testament

Here is Love

Lyrics: William Rees (bridge: Matt Redman)
Tune (“What though clouds are hovering over me”): Robert Lowry

Here is love vast as the ocean,
lovingkindness as the flood
When the Prince of life our ransom
shed for us His precious blood

Who His love will not remember?
Who can cease to sing His praise?
He will never be forgotten throughout heaven’s eternal days

On the mount of crucifixion
fountains opened deep and wide
Through the floodgates of God’s mercy
flowed a vast & gracious tide

Grace and love like mighty rivers
poured incessant from above
Heaven’s peace and perfect justice
kissed a guilty world in love

Who His love will not remember?
Who can cease to sing His praise?
He will never be forgotten throughout heaven’s eternal days

No love is higher, no love is wider
No love is deeper, no love is truer

Let me all Thy love accepting
love Thee ever all my days
Let me seek Thy kingdom only,
all my life be to Thy praise
Thou alone shall be my glory,
nothing in the world I see
Thou hast cleansed and sanctified me,
Thou alone have set me free

Benediction
