Faith Makes You Well Celebration introduction:
Job is challenged to see everything in his life from a fresh perspective. Job 42.
Evil destroys the wicked. The wicked will receive what is coming to them. The Lord redeems the soul of His servants. Satan does not take more than the leash the Lord keeps him on allows. Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. Ps. 34.
Hebrews offers explanation to the people. This priest will bring to fruition the long awaited hope for a New Covenant. From his vantage point as One living in the presence of the living God, He can affect a change in heart that will allow all of us to draw near to God as well. Heb. 7.
We focus on establishing Jesus’ identity and mission, and blind Bartimaeus appears in the narrative as a man who truly “sees” Jesus. As a story about healing we see someone experiences a problem, there is a factor that complicates matters, Jesus effects the cure, the result is confirmed, and then there is a response to the miracle. Mark 10.
Church’s One Foundation
– lyrics – Samuel J Stone 1866
– music – Samuel Sebastian Wesley
The Church’s one foundation Is Jesus Christ her Lord;
She is His new creation By water and the Word:
From heav’n He came and sought her To be His holy Bride;
With His own blood He bought her, And for her life He died.
The LORD restored the fortunes of Job when he had prayed for his friends; and the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before. Job 42:10.
Evil brings death to the wicked, and those who hate the righteous will be condemned. The LORD redeems the life of his servants; none of those who take refuge in him will be condemned. Ps. 34:21-2.
For the law appoints as high priests those who are subject to weakness, but the word of the oath, which came later than the law, appoints a Son who has been made perfect forever. Heb. 7:28.
Then Jesus said to him, “What do you want me to do for you?” The blind man said to him, “My teacher, let me see again.” Jesus said to him, “Go; your faith has made you well.” Immediately he regained his sight and followed him on the way. Mark 10:51-2.
Psalm 34 Song – performed by Gospel Welpetz
Eternal One, whose thoughts and ways are not ours, you alone are God, awesome, holy, and most high. School us in the ways of faith and wisdom, that we, like Job, may learn to truly see and hear, and in humility find blessing. Amen.
PRAYER is the soul’s sincere desire.
James Montgomery 1818
PRAYER is the soul’s sincere desire, Uttered or unexpressed;
The motion of a hidden fire, That trembles in the breast.
Prayer is the burden of a sigh, The falling of a tear;
The upward glancing of an eye, When none but God is near.
Friends in Christ, God invites us to hold the needs of our sisters and brothers as dear to us as our own needs. Loving our neighbors as ourselves, we offer our thanksgivings and our petitions on behalf of the church and the world. Hear our prayers, God of power, and through the ministry of your Son free us from the grip of the tomb, that we may desire you as the fullness of life and proclaim your saving deeds to all the world. Amen.
– performed by The Crossing at St. Paul’s
Creator God, you are wrapped in light as a garment, clothed with honor and majesty. Enlighten us with true faith and humble obedience that seeks to serve others in your name. Amen.
Joy to the World
Isaac Watts 1719
– performed by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir & USAFR
Joy to the World, the Lord has come! Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room, And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven and nature sing, And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing.
Most High, your Anointed One offered himself freely as witness against our sin. As you delighted to call him your Son, give us the courage to bring you equal delight by our willingness to drink the cup of sacrifice on behalf or our sisters and brothers, and, with them, offer you praise unceasing and lives transformed as true heirs of your grace-filled realm. Amen
We are all stewards spreading the Word of Jesus’ blessings for His people.
