HYMN:  714       The King is among us                    Graham Kendrick © Thankyou Music

 

The king is among us,

His Spirit is here,

Let’s draw near and worship,

Let songs fill the air.

 

He looks down upon us,

Delight in His face,

Enjoying His children’s love,

Enthralled by our praise.

 

For each child is special,

Accepted and loved,

A love gift from Jesus

To His Father above.

 

And now He is giving

His gifts to us all,

For no one is worthless

And each one is called.

 

The Spirit’s anointing

On all flesh comes down,

And we shall be channels

For works like His own.

 

We come now believing

Your promise of power,

For we are Your people

And this is Your hour.

 

The King is among us,

His Spirit is here,

Let’s draw near and worship,

Let songs fill the air.

 

 

 

The Peace:

Leader:                 Alleluia, Christ has been raised from the dead 1 Cor 15: 20

 

                              The peace of the Lord be always with you

All:                       And also with you.

 

Responsory:

Leader:                 As we wait in silence

All:                       Fill us with your Holy Spirit.

 

Leader:                 As we listen to your word,

All:                       Fill us with your Holy Spirit.

 

Leader:                 As we worship you in majesty,

All:                       Fill us with your Holy Spirit.

 

Leader:                 As we long for your refreshing,

All:                       Fill us with your Holy Spirit.

A silence is kept

 

 

 

A time for reflection and prayer for our personal renewal:

 

Leader:        What God has prepared for those who love him,

                   He has revealed to us through the Spirit;

                   For the Spirit searches everything,    

cf 1 Cor 2:9

All:              Be with us, Spirit of God;

                   Search us and know us, reveal your truth within us.

Silence

 

Leader:        Breathe on us, Spirit of God;

All:              Renew in us your life, fill us with your saving power.

Silence

All:              Bring strength, healing and peace.

Silence

 

Collect Prayer:

 

                   Holy Spirit, sent by the Father, ignite in us your holy fire;

                   Strengthen your children with the gift of faith,

                   Revive your church with the breath of love,

                   And renew the face of the earth,

                   Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Reading :   Galatians 5: 14 – 6: 2      © The Voice

 

14 For the whole law comes down to this one instruction: “Love your neighbour as yourself,” so 15 why all this vicious gnawing on each other? If you are not careful, you will find you’ve eaten each other alive!

16 Here’s my instruction: walk in the Spirit, and let the Spirit bring order to your life. If you do, you will never give in to your selfish and sinful cravings. 17 For everything the flesh desires goes against the Spirit, and everything the Spirit desires goes against the flesh. There is a constant battle raging between them that prevents you from doing the good you want to do. 18 But when you are led by the Spirit, you are no longer subject to the law.

19 It’s clear that our flesh entices us into practicing some of its most heinous acts: participating in corrupt sexual relationships, impurity, unbridled lust, 20 idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, arguing, jealousy, anger, selfishness, contentiousness, division, 21 envy of others’ good fortune, drunkenness, drunken revelry, and other shameful vices that plague humankind. I told you this clearly before, and I only tell you again so there is no room for confusion: those who give in to these ways will not inherit the kingdom of God.

22 The Holy Spirit produces a different kind of fruit: unconditional love, joy, peace, patience, kindheartedness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. You won’t find any law opposed to fruit like this. 24 Those of us who belong to the Anointed One have crucified our old lives and put to death the flesh and all the lusts and desires that plague us.

25 Now since we have chosen to walk with the Spirit, let’s keep each step in perfect sync with God’s Spirit. 26 This will happen when we set aside our self-interests and work together to create true community instead of a culture consumed by provocation, pride, and envy.

My spiritual brothers and sisters, if one of our faithful has fallen into a trap and is snared by sin, don’t stand idle and watch his demise. Gently restore him, being careful not to step into your own snare. Shoulder each other’s burdens, and then you will live as the law of the Anointed teaches us.

HYMN: 317        How deep the Father’s Love          S Townend © Thankyou Music      

 

How deep the father’s love for us,

How vast beyond all measure,

That He should give His only Son

To make a wretch His treasure.

How great the pain of searing loss –

The Father turns His face away,

As wounds which mar the Chosen One

Bring many sons to glory.

 

Behold the man upon a cross,

My sin upon His shoulders;

Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice

Call out among the scoffers.

It was my sin that held Him there

Until it was accomplished;

His dying breath has brought me life –

I know that it is finished.

 

I will not boast in anything,

No gifts, no power, no wisdom;

But I will boast in Jesus Christ,

His death and resurrection.

Why should I gain from His reward?

I cannot give an answer;

But this I know with all my heart –

His wounds have paid my ransom.

 

Reading:     1 Corinthians 12: 1-11  © The Voice        

 

12 Now let me turn to some issues about spiritual gifts, brothers and sisters. There’s much you need to learn.

Remember the way you used to live when you were pagans apart from God? You were engrossed—enchanted with voiceless idols, led astray by mere images carved by human hands. With that in mind, I want you to understand that no one saying “Jesus is cursed” is operating under God’s Spirit, and no one confessing “Jesus is Lord” can do so without the Holy Spirit’s inspiration.

Now there are many kinds of grace gifts, but they are all from the same Spirit. There are many different ways to serve, but they’re all directed by the same Lord. There are many amazing working gifts in the church, but it is the same God who energizes them all in all who have the gifts.

Each believer has received a gift that manifests the Spirit’s power and presence. That gift is given for the good of the whole community. The Spirit gives one person a word of wisdom, but to the next person the same Spirit gives a word of knowledge. Another will receive the gift of faith by the same Spirit, and still another gifts of healing—all from the one Spirit. 10 One person is enabled by the Spirit to perform miracles, another to prophesy, while another is enabled to distinguish those prophetic spirits. The next one speaks in various kinds of unknown languages, while another is able to interpret those languages. 11 One Spirit works all these things in each of them individually as He sees fit.

 

 

Sermon

 

Let us pray….

 

The Power of Love

 

Leader:        Out of death came life

All:             and good defeated evil.

                   An empty cross and an empty tomb,

                   A nail mark shown and a presence known.

 

Leader:        Out of sorrow came joy,

All:             and God sent the Spirit:

Leader:        coming like fire to all people and all ages,

All:             coming to birth in the water of life.

 

Leader:        Out of difference came unity

All:             and God’s people were called:

Leader:        Called to receive him in bread and wine.

All:             Called to be free in the power of love.

 

Leader:        For when the Holy Spirit comes upon you,

                   You will be filled with power

All:             and be witnesses for Christ to the ends of the earth.

                  

 

Now let us pray together

INTERCESSIONS (end with Lord’s Prayer) led by

 

We say the Lord’s Prayer together

                   Our Father in heaven,

                   Hallowed be your name,

                   Your kingdom come,

                   Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven,

                   Give us today our daily bread,

                   Forgive us our sins,

                   As we forgive those who sin against us,

                   Save us in the time of trial

                   And deliver us from evil,

                   For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours,

                   Now and forever. Amen.

 

HYMN:      275 Guide me, O thou great Redeemer       W Williams © unknown

                   Guide me, o thou great Redeemer,

Pilgrim through this barren land;

I am weak, but Thou art mighty,

Hold me with Thy powerful hand:

Bread of heaven, Bread of heaven,

Feed me now and ever more,

Feed me now and ever more.

 

Open Thou the crystal fountain

Whence the healing stream doth flow;

Let the fire and cloudy pillar

Lead me all my journey through:

Strong Deliverer, strong Deliverer,

Be Thou still my strength and shield,

Be Thou still my strength and shield.

 

When I tread the verge of Jordan

Bid my anxious fears subside;

Death of death, and hell’s destruction,

Land me safe on Canaan’s side:

Songs of praises, songs of praises,

I will ever give to Thee,

I will ever give to Thee.

                  

Blessing:

                  

                   May the Spirit

                   Who hovered over the waters when the world was created,

                   Breathe into you the life he gives.

All:             Amen.

 

                   May the Spirit

                   Who overshadowed the Virgin when the eternal Son came among us

                   Make you joyful in the service of the Lord

All:             Amen.

 

                   May the Spirit,

                   Who set the church on fire on the Day of Pentecost,

                   Bring the world alive with love for the risen Christ.

All:             Amen.

 

                   And the blessing of God almighty,

                   The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,

                   Be with you and remain with you always, Amen.

 

 

All:              Filled with the Spirit’s power,

                    We go in the light and peace of Christ, Alleluia, alleluia.
