GATHERING SONG

“This Is Your House” – By: Don Moen

As we gather in this place today,

Holy Spirit, come and have your way, have your way;

As we lay aside our own desire,

Sweep across our hearts with Holy fire; have your way;

 

Chorus: This is your house, your home;  We welcome you, Lord, we welcome you

This is your house, your home;  We welcome you today.

 

As we offer up our hearts and lives,

Let them be a living sacrifice, have your way

Be glorified in everything we do,

Be glorified in everything we say; have your way.     Chorus

 

As we pray (as we pray) O Lord draw near

It’s your voice (it’s your voice) We long to hear.  Chorus x2

 

We welcome you today.  We welcome you today.

HOLY GOSPEL – John 17:6-19

[Jesus prayed:] 6“I have made your name known to those whom you gave me from the world. They were yours, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word. 7Now they know that everything you have given me is from you; 8for the words that you gave to me I have given to them, and they have received them and know in truth that I came from you; and they have believed that you sent me. 9I am asking on their behalf; I am not asking on behalf of the world, but on behalf of those whom you gave me, because they are yours. 10All mine are yours, and yours are mine; and I have been glorified in them. 11And now I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them in your name that you have given me, so that they may be one, as we are one. 12While I was with them, I protected them in your name that you have given me. I guarded them, and not one of them was lost except the one destined to be lost, so that the scripture might be fulfilled. 13But now I am coming to you, and I speak these things in the world so that they may have my joy made complete in themselves. 14I have given them your word, and the world has hated them because they do not belong to the world, just as I do not belong to the world. 15I am not asking you to take them out of the world, but I ask you to protect them from the evil one. 16They do not belong to the world, just as I do not belong to the world. 17Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. 18As you have sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. 19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, so that they also may be sanctified in truth.”

SERMON – Pr. Gary Hedding
