A Picture of Loving Jesus (07-26-20)


Give Me Faith

Words and Music: Elevation Worship

I need You to soften my heart,
To break me apart;
I need You to open my eyes
To see that You’re shaping my life.

All I am
I surrender.

Give me faith to trust what You say;
You are good and Your love is great;
I’m broken inside, I give You my life.

I need You to shine in my night,
To be all my light;
I need You to pierce through the dark,
And cleanse every part of me.

I may be weak
But Your Spirit’s strong in me;
My flesh may fail,
My God, You never will.


Words and Music: Rend Collective

I come in simplicity,
Longing for purity
To worship in You
In spirit and truth, only You.

Lord, strip it all away
Till only You remain;
I’m coming back to my first love,
Only You.

You’re the reason I sing,
The reason I sing,
My heart will sing,
How I love You;
And forever I’ll sing,
Forever I’ll sing,
Yes, my heart will sing,
How I love You.

I come with my broken song
To You, the perfect One,
To worship You in spirit and truth,
Only You.

Give me a child-like heart,
Lead me to where You are,
I’m coming back to my first love,
Only You.

How I love You, how I love You,
How I love You, my first love;
How I love You, how I love You,
How I love You, my first love.

Luke 7:31-50

31“To what then shall I compare the people of this generation, and what are they like? 32They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling to one another,

“ ‘We played the flute for you, and you did not dance;
we sang a dirge, and you did not weep.’

33For John the Baptist has come eating no bread and drinking no wine, and you say, ‘He has a demon.’ 34The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Look at him! A glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ 35Yet wisdom is justified by all her children.”

36One of the Pharisees asked him to eat with him, and he went into the Pharisee’s house and reclined at table. 37And behold, a woman of the city, who was a sinner, when she learned that he was reclining at table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of ointment, 38and standing behind him at his feet, weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head and kissed his feet and anointed them with the ointment. 39Now when the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, he would have known who and what sort of woman this is who is touching him, for she is a sinner.” 40And Jesus answering said to him, “Simon, I have something to say to you.” And he answered, “Say it, Teacher.”

41“A certain moneylender had two debtors. One owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. 42When they could not pay, he cancelled the debt of both. Now which of them will love him more?” 43Simon answered, “The one, I suppose, for whom he cancelled the larger debt.” And he said to him, “You have judged rightly.” 44Then turning toward the woman he said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave me no water for my feet, but she has wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. 45You gave me no kiss, but from the time I came in she has not ceased to kiss my feet. 46You did not anoint my head with oil, but she has anointed my feet with ointment. 47Therefore I tell you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven—for she loved much. But he who is forgiven little, loves little.” 48And he said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.” 49Then those who were at table with him began to say among themselves, “Who is this, who even forgives sins?” 50And he said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.”
