Born Again (03-27-22)


Joyful (the One Who Saves)

By: Chris Chuong
Original words: Henry van Dyke

Joyful, joyful, we adore You,
God of glory, Lord of love;
Hearts unfold like flowers before You,
Opening to the sun above;
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness,
Drive the dark of doubt away;
Giver of eternal gladness,
Fill us with the light of day.

You are the One who saves,
You are the One who saves;
You are the One who’s hands
Lift us from the grave;
You are the Light of life,
The everlasting Day,
You are the One who takes
All our sins away.

You are giving and forgiving,
Ever blessing, ever blessed,
Fountain of the joy of living,
Ocean depths of happy rest.

Jesus, You are my Rescue,
Jesus, You are my Rescue,
I give You everything I am.

Saving One

By: Fieldes Mia Leanne Cherie, Neufeld Jon, Neufeld Tim Robert

What mercy was revealed,
What selflessness and peace;
My fate was surely sealed
Until He rescued me.
His pardon for my sin,
His bounty for my need,
From slavery and shame,
I am redeemed.

We sing a sweet refrain
For all that He has done,
Jesus is the Christ, the saving One;
By wondrous grace we’re saved,
Through faith the vict’ry won,
Jesus is the Christ, the saving One.

No fear can hold me down,
Nor darkness steal my joy,
For blood has been poured out,
The enemy destroyed;
Death could not hold Him down,
The grave was not enough,
To steal away His throne,
For He is God.

Anyone who calls upon His name,
They will be saved,
They will be saved!

Mighty To Save

By: Benjamin David Fielding, Reuben Timothy Morgan

Everyone needs compassion,
A love that’s never failing,
Let mercy fall on me;
Everyone needs forgiveness,
The kindness of a Savior,
The hope of nations…

Savior, He can move the mountains,
My God is Mighty to save,
He is Mighty to save;
Forever, Author of salvation,
He rose and conquered the grave,
Jesus conquered the grave.

So take me as You find me,
With all my fears and failures
And fill my life again;
I give my life to follow,
And everything I believe in
I surrender…

Shine Your light and
Let the whole world see
We’re singing
For the glory of the risen King, Jesus!

John 3:1-15
Now there was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews; this man came to Jesus at night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You have come from God as a teacher; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.”Jesus responded and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless someone is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

Nicodemus *said to Him, “How can a person be born when he is old? He cannot enter his mother’s womb a second time and be born, can he?” Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless someone is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which has been born of the flesh is flesh, and that which has been born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not be amazed that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know where it is coming from and where it is going; so is everyone who has been born of the Spirit.”

Nicodemus responded and said to Him, “How can these things be?” 10 Jesus answered and said to him, “You are the teacher of Israel, and yet you do not understand these things? 11 Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know and testify of what we have seen, and you people do not accept our testimony. 12 If I told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things? 13 No one has ascended into heaven, except He who descended from heaven: the Son of Man. 14 And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 so that everyone who believes will have eternal life in Him.
