08/05/2022 Morning worship

Love is in the air! That was the theme of this morning’s worship which was lead my Commissioners Carol and Ivor Telfer.

As the call to worship we played Paul Drury’s song arrangement ‘Such Love’.

Such love, pure as the whitest snow
Such love, weeps for the shame I know
Such love, paying the debt I owe
O Jesus, such love

Such love, stilling my restlessness
Such love, filling my emptiness
Such love, showing me holiness
O Jesus, such love

Such love, springs from eternity
Such love, streaming through history
Such love, fountain of life to me
O Jesus, such love

During worship we shared ‘In the Love of Jesus’ (Kenneth Downie).

Like to a lamb who from the fold has strayed
Far on the mountain, of the dark afraid,
Seeking the shelter from the night’s alarm,
Longing for comfort of the shepherd’s arm,
So Jesus found me on sin’s mountain drear,
Gathered me close and banished all my fear.

In the Love of Jesus there is all I need,
While I follow closely where my Lord may lead;
By his grace forgiven,
In his presence blest,
In the love of Jesus,
In the love of Jesus, is perfect rest.

Commissioner Carol reminded us that no matter our attitude in the past, Jesus calls us to greater things. He wants us to love one another in a way no-one else can, all because we are loving because of him. She askied us to think about whether it was time for us to say the words of Peter, “Lord, you know all things. You know that I love you. And you know that I am willing to sacrifice everything for you, just as you did for me”.

At the conclusion of worship we played the tune associated with the following chorus.

I want to sing it, I want to shout it,
I want to tell the world about it;
The love of Jesus, the love of Jesus;
It brings the glory to my soul!
I can’t compare it, I want to share it,
I feel I really must declare it,
The love of Jesus, the love of Jesus;
It brings the glory to my soul!
I want to sing it, I want to shout it;
It brings the glory to my soul!
I want to sing it, I want to shout it;
It brings the glory to my soul!
