The Church and The Churches (04-25-21)


You Are

By: Jason David Ingram, Reuben Timothy Morgan

You are good, You are good
When there’s nothing good in me;
You are love, You are love
On display for all to see;
You are light, You are light
When the darkness closes in,
You are hope, You are hope,
You have covered all my sin.

You are peace, You are peace
When my fear is crippling;
You are true, You are true
Even in my wandering;
You are joy, You are joy,
You’re the reason that I sing;
You are life, You are life,
In You death has lost its sting.

Oh, I’m running to You, Lord,
I’m running to You, Lord,
Jesus, all You are will always be enough,
Capture my heart and keep it true,
All that I need is found in You.

You are more, You are more
Than my words can ever say;
You are Lord, You are Lord,
All creation will proclaim;
You are here, You are here,
In Your presence, I’m made whole;
You are God, You are God,
Of all else I’m letting go.

My heart will sing no other name
Jesus, Jesus.

Just As I Am

Words: Charlotte Elliott
Music: William Batchelder Bradbury

Just as I am, without one plea,
But that Thy blood was shed for me,
And that Thou bid’st me come to Thee,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come!

Ooh, just as I am,
Ooh I come;
Ooh, just as I am,
O Lamb of God, I come!

Just as I am, and waiting not
To rid my soul of one dark blot;
To Thee, whose blood
Can cleanse each spot,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come!

Just as I am, though tossed about,
With many a conflict, many a doubt,
Fightings within, and fears without,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come!

Just as I am, poor, wretched, blind;
Sight, riches healing of the mind,
Yes, all I need in Thee to find,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come!

Just as I am, Thou wilt receive,
Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve,
Because Thy promise I believe;
O Lamb of God, I come, I come!

Just as I am, Thy love unknown
Has broken every barrier down
Now to be Thine, yea, Thine alone;
O Lamb of God, I come, I come!

Revelation 1:10-13
10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet 11 saying, “Write what you see in a book and send it to the seven churches, to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea.”

12 Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking to me, and on turning I saw seven golden lampstands, 13 and in the midst of the lampstands one like a son of man,

Revelation 1:20
As for the mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand, and the seven golden lampstands, the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.

1 Corinthians 1:2
To the church of God that is in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints together with all those who in every place call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, both their Lord and ours

Ephesians 1:22-23
22 And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.

Ephesians 4:4-6
There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
