Morning meeting 29/07/2018

The call to worship was provided by the band this morning. We played the song All Heaven Declares:

All Heaven Declares
The glory of the risen Lord.
Who can compare
With the beauty of the Lord?
Forever You will be
The Lamb upon the throne.
I gladly bow the knee
And worship You alone.

I will proclaim
The glory of the risen Lord.
Who once was slain
To reconcile man to God.
Forever You will be
The Lamb upon the throne.
I gladly bow the knee
And worship You alone.

With our officers on holiday today, our meeting was led by bandsman Allan Scott. Allan got us to consider ‘Why?’ this morning – There are so many bad things happening in this world that people question where God is.

So this morning Allan got us to consider ‘Why?’ – why God lets bad things happen and why he doesn’t use his power to intervene. He reminded us that God’s power is not power as we know it. God’s power is his love for each of us, and because of that he looks after us, loving us and helping us through the difficult and stressful times of our lives.

The message from the band reinforced this message, as we played People Need The Lord:

Every day they pass me by
I can see it in their eyes
Empty people filled with care
Headed who knows where

On they go through private pain
Living fear to fear
Laughter hides their silent cries
Only Jesus hears

People need the Lord, people need the Lord
At the end of broken dreams, He’s the open door
People need the Lord, people need the Lord
When will we realise people need the Lord?

We are called to take His light
To a world where wrong seems right
What could be too great a cost
For sharing life with one who’s lost?

Through His love our hearts can feel
All the grief they bear
They must hear the words of life
Only we can share

People need the Lord, people need the Lord
At the end of broken dreams, He’s the open door
People need the Lord, people need the Lord
When will we realise that we must give our lives?
For people need the Lord, people need the Lord

At the end of worship, the band played Lord, I Come To You:

Lord, I come to You,
Let my heart be changed, renewed,
Flowing from the grace,
That I found in You
Lord, I’ve come to know,
The weaknesses I see in me,
Will be stripped away,
By the power of Your love

Hold me close,
Let Your love surround me
Bring me near,
Draw me to Your side
And as I wait,
I’ll rise up like the eagle
And I will soar with You,
Your Spirit leads me on
In the power of Your Love

Lord unveil my eyes,
Let me see You face to face
The knowledge of Your love,
As You live in me
Lord renew my mind,
As Your will unfolds in my life
In living every day,
In the power of Your Love
