Crestview Worship Service – April 25 th , 2021

OPENING GREETING

SONG: The Lion and the Lamb

He’s coming on the clouds. Kings and kingdoms will bow down

And every chain will break, as broken hearts declare His praise

Who can stop the Lord Almighty

Our God is the Lion, the Lion of Judah. He's roaring with power and fighting our battles

And every knee will bow before You.

Our God is the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain. For the sin of the world

His blood breaks the chains

And every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb

Oh, every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb

Oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh

So open up the gates. Make way before the King of kings

Our God who calls to save, is here to set the captives free

Who can stop the Lord Almighty

Who can stop the Lord Almighty

Who can stop the Lord Almighty

Who can stop the Lord Almighty

Who can stop the Lord Almighty

Who can stop the Lord!

RESPONSIVE READING

Leader: As followers of Jesus Christ living in this world—which some seek to control and others view

with despair.

Congregation: We declare with joy and trust: Our world belongs to God.

Leader: From the beginning, through all the crises of our times, until the kingdom fully comes.Leader: All spheres of

life, family and friendship, work and worship, school and state, play and art, bear wounds of our rebellion.

Congregation: Sin is present everywhere. In pride of race; arrogance of nations; abuse of the weak

and helpless; disregard for water, air, and soil; destruction of living creatures; slavery, murder,

terror, and war; worship of false gods; the mistreatment of our bodies; and our frantic efforts to

escape reality. We become victims of our own sin.

Leader: In all our striving to excuse or save ourselves, we stand condemned before the truth of God.

Congregation: But our world, broken and scarred, still belongs to God who holds it together and

gives us hope.

Leader: While justly angry, God did not turn away from a world bent on destruction, but turned to face it

in love.

Congregation: With patience and tender care the Lord set out on the long road of redemption to

reclaim the lost as his people and the world as his kingdom.

Leader: Although Adam and Eve were expelled from the garden and their days burdened by the weight of

sin, the Lord held on to them in love and promised to crush the evil forces they had unleashed.

Congregation: When evil filled the earth, God judged it with a flood but rescued Noah and his

family and animals of every kind. He covenanted with all creatures that seasons will continue and

that such destruction will not come again until the last day when the Lord returns to make all

things new.

Leader: As followers of Jesus Christ living in this world—which some seek to control and others view

with despair.

Congregation: We declare with joy and trust: Our world belongs to God.

SONG: Great Are you Lord

You give life, you are love, you bring light to the darkness

You give hope, you restore, every heart that is broken

And great are you, Lord

It’s Your breath in our lungs. So we pour out our praise. We pour out our praise

It’s Your breath in our lungs. So we pour out our praise to You only

All the earth will shout Your praise. Our hearts will cry, these bones will sing

Great are You, Lord

And all the earth will shout Your praise. Our hearts will cry, these bones will sing

Great are You, Lord

Songwriters: Jason Ingram, David Leonard, Leslie Jordan


SONG: Be Thou My Vision

Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart

Naught be all else to me, save that thou art

Thou my best thought, by day or by night

Waking or sleeping, thy presence my light

Be thou my wisdom, and thou my true word

I ever with thee and thou with me, Lord

Thou my great Father, and I thy true son

Thou in me dwelling and I with thee one

High King of heaven, my victory won

May I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heaven’s sun

Heart of my own heart, whatever befall

Still be my vision, O ruler of all

MESSAGE: The Centrality of Christ: Regarding Encouragement – Hebrews 12-13

Song: Let All the People Say AMEN

You are not alone if you are lonely. When you’re feeling frail, you’re not the only

We are all the same in need of mercy. To be forgiven and be free

It’s all you got to lean on. But thank God, it’s all you need

And all the people said Amen. Whoa, oh. And all the people said Amen

Give thanks to the Lord, for his love never ends. And all the people said Amen

If you’re rich or poor well it don’t matter. Weak or strong, we know love is what we’re after

We’re all broken but we’re all in this together. God knows we stumble and fall

And he so loved the world he sent his son to save us all

Blessed are the poor spirits who are torn apart. Blessed are the persecuted and the pure in heart

Blessed are the people lonely for another start. For this is a kingdom – The kingdom of God

Songwriters: Maher Matthew, Moak Paul Greer, Morgan Trevor G
