Seven Hills Fellowship

Dear Church,

In seasons of suffering, it is common to try and “muscle up,” “power through,” “push on” in our own strength and resourcefulness, but the Scriptures call us to respond to calamity in a different way, they call us to wait. Wait for the Lord. He is our rock, our foundation, he is our guide, the one who knows things we cannot, and for him we must wait. He has shown his steadfast, immovable, and unshakable love to us time and time again. And from this truth Psalm 31 calls us to worship our loving Lord.

 

(Feel free to read all readings and prayers out loud as well as sing along with the recordings.)

 

Call to Worship: Psalms 31:21-24

21 Blessed be the LORD, for he has wondrously shown his steadfast love to me when I was in a besieged city.
22 I had said in my alarm, “I am cut off from your sight.” But you heard the voice of my pleas for mercy when I cried to you for help.
23 Love the LORD, all you his saints! The LORD preserves the faithful but abundantly repays the one who acts in pride.
24 Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for the LORD!

Song: "O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go"

O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go

Verse 1
O Love that wilt not let me go
I rest my weary soul in Thee
I give Thee back the life I owe
That in Thine ocean depths its flow
May richer fuller be

Verse 2
O Light that followest all my way
I yield my flickering torch to Thee
My heart restores its borrowed ray
That in Thy sunshine’s blaze its day
May brighter fairer be

Verse 3
O Joy that seekest me through pain
I cannot close my heart to Thee
I trace the rainbow through the rain
And feel the promise is not vain
That morn shall tearless be

Verse 4
O Cross that liftest up my head
I dare not ask to fly from Thee
I lay in dust life’s glory dead
And from the ground there blossoms red
Life that shall endless be

Song: "Rock of Ages (When The Day Seems Long)"

Rock Of Ages (When The Day Seems Long)

Verse 1
Rock of Ages when the day seems long
From this labor and this heartache I have come
The skies will wear out but You remain the same
Rock of Ages I praise Your name

Rock of Ages You have brought me near
You have poured out Your life-blood
Your love Your tears
To make this stone heart come alive again
Rock of Ages forgive my sin

Chorus
Rock of Ages
Rock of Ages
Bind Your children until the kingdom comes
Rock of Ages Your will be done

Verse 2
Rock of Ages when in want or rest
My desperate need for such a Savior I confess
Pull these idols out from my heart’s embrace
Rock of Ages I need Your grace

Rock of Ages broken scorned for me
Who am I that You would die to make me free
To give me glory You took the death and pain
Rock of Ages my Offering

Verse 3
Rock of Ages it is done You cried
The curtain’s torn and I see justice satisfied
Now write Your mercy on my heart and hands
Rock of Ages in faith I stand

Rock of Ages my great hope secure
Your promise holds just like an anchor to my soul
Bind Your children with cords of love and grace
Rock of Ages we give You praise

Nicene Creed:

We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one being with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven:
was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary,
and became truly human.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again
in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Song: "Lead Me On"

Lead Me On

Verse 1
You are my shepherd there’s nothing I shall want
Beside still waters You lead my spirit on
Your hand will guide me no matter where I walk
Through darkest valley Your love is not far off

Chorus
I will dwell in Your house forever
Lead me on

Verse 2
I fear no evil, for You are with me
You set this table before my enemies
And You anoint me You overflow my cup
And they will follow me, Your goodness and Your love

Bridge
Your rod and Your staff are a strange mercy
In a world where I’m not yet home
Your rod and Your staff are a strange mercy
In a world where I’m not yet home

Sermon:

Song: "Grace Alone"

Grace Alone

Verse 1
I was an orphan lost at the fall
Running away when I’d hear you call
But Father you worked your will
I had no righteousness of my own
I had no right to draw near your throne
But Father you loved me still

Chorus 1
And in love before you laid the world’s foundation
You predestined to adopt me as your own
You have raised me up so high above my station
I’m a child of God by grace and grace alone

Verse 2
You left your home to seek out the lost
You knew the great and terrible cost
But Jesus your face was set
I worked my fingers down to the bone
But nothing I did could ever atone
But Jesus you paid my debt

Chorus 2
By Your blood I have redemption and salvation
Lord you died that I might reap what you have sown
And you rose that I might be a new creation
I am born again by grace and grace alone

Bridge
I was in darkness all of my life
I never knew the day from the night
But Spirit you made me see
I swore I knew the way on my own
Head full of rocks a heart made of stone
But Spirit you moved in me

Chorus 3
And at your touch my sleeping spirit was awakened
On my darkened heart the light of Christ has shone
Called into a kingdom that cannot be shaken
Heaven’s citizen by grace and grace alone

Ending
So I’ll stand in faith by grace and grace alone
I will run the race by grace and grace alone
I will slay my sin by grace and grace alone
I will reach the end by grace and grace alone
