Filling Our Flasks With Oil — Pt. 1 (10-17-21)


In The Secret

By Andy Park

In the secret, in the quiet place,
In the stillness You are there.
In the secret, in the quiet hour,
I wait only for You,
‘Cause I want to know You more.

I want to know You,
I want to hear Your voice,
I want to know You more;
I want to touch You,
I want to see Your face,
I want to know You more.

I am reaching for the highest goal
That I might receive the prize;
Pressing onward, pushing every
Hindrance aside, out of my way,
‘Cause I want to know You more.

I want to know You more,
Jesus Christ, my Lord…

Just As I Am

Words: Charlotte Elliott‎

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!

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!

Christ Liveth In Me

Words: Daniel Webster Whittle
Music: James McGranahan

Once far from God and dead in sin,
No light my heart could see.
But in God’s Word the light I found;
Now Christ liveth in me.

Christ liveth in me.
Christ liveth in me.
Oh! What a salvation this,
That Christ liveth in me.

As rays of light from yonder sun,
The flow’rs of earth set free,
So life and light and love come forth
From Christ living in me.

As lives the flow’r within the seed,
As in the cone the tree,
So, praise the God of truth and grace.
His Spirit dwelleth in me.

With longing all my heart is filled,
That like Him I may be.
As on the wondrous thought I dwell,
That Christ liveth in me.

Take Time to Behold Him

Words: Adapted from William Dunn Longstaff; Music: George Coles Stebbins

Take time to behold Him,
Speak oft with your Lord,
Abide in Him always,
And feed on His Word.
Make friends with God’s children,
Help those who are weak,
Forgetting in nothing
His blessing to seek.

Take time to behold Him,
The world rushes on;
Spend much time in secret
With Jesus alone.
By looking to Jesus
Like Him you shall be;
Your friends, in your conduct,
His likeness shall see.

Take time to behold Him,
Let Him be your Guide;
And run not before Him
Whatever betide;
In joy or in sorrow
Still follow the Lord,
And, looking to Jesus,
Still trust in His Word.

Take time to behold Him,
Be calm in your soul,
Each thought and each motive
Beneath His control.
Thus led by His Spirit
To fountains of love,
You then shall be fitted
For service above.


“Filling Our Flasks With Oil” — Part 1

Message given by Rex Beck on October 17, 2021

Matthew 25:1–4
“Then the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. 3 For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them, 4 but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps.”

The Building Christ for the Body of Christ

Ephesians 4:7-14
7 But grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of Christ’s gift. 8 Therefore it says,

“When he ascended on high he led a host of captives,
and he gave gifts to men.”

9 (In saying, “He ascended,” what does it mean but that he had also descended into the lower regions, the earth? 10 He who descended is the one who also ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things.) 11 And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, 12 to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, 13 until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, 14 so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes.
