 GATHERING SONG

 Messiah – By: Larry Olson.  (Song #78)

 Someone’s shouting from the Desert.  Someone’s shouting from the sea.

Someone’s shouting from the Mountain. Someone’s shouting from the valley.

Messiah, come and be our King.  Messiah, come and be our King.

 

Someone’s shouting from the city.  I am young, I am cold.

Someone’s shouting from the country.  I am lonely, I am old.

Messiah, come and be our King.  Messiah, come and be our King.

 

Someone’s shouting I am broken.  Someone’s shouting make me whole.

Someone’s shouting come and change me.  Someone’s shouting save my soul.

Messiah, come and be our King.  Messiah, come and be our King.

HOLY GOSPEL  Mark 10:17-31

17As [Jesus] was setting out on a journey, a man ran up and knelt before him, and asked him, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” 18Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. 19You know the commandments: ‘You shall not murder; You shall not commit adultery; You shall not steal; You shall not bear false witness; You shall not defraud; Honor your father and mother.’ ” 20He said to him, “Teacher, I have kept all these since my youth.” 21Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said, “You lack one thing; go, sell what you own, and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.” 22When he heard this, he was shocked and went away grieving, for he had many possessions.

23Then Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it will be for those who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God!” 24And the disciples were perplexed at these words. But Jesus said to them again, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! 25It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.” 26They were greatly astounded and said to one another, “Then who can be saved?” 27Jesus looked at them and said, “For mortals it is impossible, but not for God; for God all things are possible.”

28Peter began to say to him, “Look, we have left everything and followed you.” 29Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields, for my sake and for the sake of the good news, 30who will not receive a hundredfold now in this age—houses, brothers and sisters, mothers and children, and fields, with persecutions—and in the age to come eternal life. 31But many who are first will be last, and the last will be first.”

SONG OF THE DAY

“Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee”

Joyful, joyful we adore thee, God of glory, Lord of love!

Hearts unfold like flow’rs before thee, praising thee, their sun above.

Melt the clouds of sin and sadness, drive the gloom of doubt away.

Giver of immortal gladness, fill us with the light of day.

 

All thy works with joy surround thee, earth and heav’n reflect thy rays,

stars and angels sing around thee, center of unbroken praise.

Field and forest, vale and mountain, flow’ry meadow, flashing sea,

chanting bird, and flowing fountain call us to rejoice in thee.

 

Thou art giving and forgiving, ever blessing, ever blest,

wellspring of the joy of living, ocean-depth of happy rest!

Thou our Father, Christ our brother, all who live in love are thine;

teach us how to love each other, lift us to the joy divine!

PRAYERS

L: Lord, in Your Mercy

C: Hear our prayer.

“Lord, I Lift Your Name On High” – By:Rick Founds

Lord, I lift your name on high; Lord, I love to sing your praises.

I’m so glad you’re in my life, I’m so glad you came to save us.

 

You came from heaven to earth to show the way,

from the earth to the cross, my debt to pay,

from the cross to the grave, from the grave to the sky;

Lord, I lift Your name on high.     Repeat
