020611 9309 Crossing Worship

The recent weather we’ve experienced provided a unique opportunity to slow down and consider both God’s trascendence (seen in His creation) as well as His immanence (His nearness). In scripture we see that God sustains all of creation by his powerful Word (Hebrews 1:3) and yet the vastness of His creation doesn’t prevent Him for caring for each of us with a deep and intimate love. We need look no further than Jesus Christ, His death and resurrection, to see the extent of God’s love for us. In this week’s service, we reflected on this beautiful dichotomy in God’s perfect character as we remembered both His glory and His sovereign care over our lives.

Glorious and Mighty by Joel Sczebel, Todd Twining and Bob Kauflin (based on Psalm 96)

Majesty, You fashioned the heavens,
Your decrees can never be changed.
Over all the plans of the nations
Your judgements reign.

Kermit read from Job 37:1-13 which provided a stirring picture of God’s majesty in the elements.

5 God’s voice thunders in marvelous ways;
he does great things beyond our understanding.
6 He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth,’
and to the rain shower, ‘Be a mighty downpour.’
7 So that everyone he has made may know his work,
he stops all people from their labor

I Sing the Mighty Power of God – Words: Isaac Watts (1715), Music and Additional Chorus: Scott Johnson, Keith Scherer, Andrew Camp, Steve Hendershot and Andrew Luley

There’s not a plant or flower below, but makes Thy glories known,
And clouds arise, and tempests blow, by order from Thy throne;
While all that borrows life from Thee is ever in Thy care;
And everywhere that we can be, Thou, God art present there.

We continued our meditation on God’s transcendence and immanence with Psalm 8 and Psalm 23. This included opportunities for silent reflection to listen more closely to what God says to us in in His Word.

The Lord Is by Pat Sczebel and Bob Kauflin (based on Psalm 23)

The depths of Your grace who can measure?
You fully supply all I need.
You restore my weary soul again and again,
and lead me in Your righteousness and peace.

We heard of assurance of God’s care for us in a reading from The Worship Sourcebook based on Psalm 121.

All Must Be Well – Words by Mary Bowley Peters (1847) with contemporary music by Matthew Smith.

Through the love of God our Savior, all will be well;
Free and changeless is His favor, all is well;
Precious is the blood that healed us;
Perfect is the grace that sealed us;
Strong the hand stretched forth to shield us,
all must be well.

This Breaks My Heart of Stone – Words by Charles Wesley (1707-1788) with new music by Benji Pocta.

Look as when thy pit’ing eye,
was closed that we might live;
“Father,” at the point to die,
my Savior cried, “Forgive”.
Surely with that dying word,
He turns and looks and cries, “Tis done.”
O my loving, bleeding Lord,
this breaks my heart of stone..

Alas! And Did My Savior Bleed – Words: Isaac Watts (1707), Music: Martyrdom, Hugh Wilson, (1800)

Well might the sun in darkness hide
And shut his glories in,
When Christ, the mighty Maker died,
For man the creature’s sin.

Jesus Messiah by Chris Tomlin, Daniel Carson, Ed Cash, Jesse Reeves

He became sin, who knew no sin;
that we might become His righteousness;
He humbled Himself, and carried the cross.
Love so amazing, love so amazing.
