Warfare and Resurrection (03-06-22)


Open Up Our Eyes

By: Chris Brown, London Gatch, Mack Brock, Stuart Garrard, Wade Joye

Greater is the One who’s in us,
Greater is the One who calls our name;
He will never fail;
Stronger is the One within us,
Stronger is the One who fights for us;
He will never fail, You will never fail.

For Your love endures forever;
Oh, Your love endures forever.

Open up our eyes
Surround us with Your light,
Your love endures forever.

Mighty is the One who’s for us,
Mighty is the One who’s strong to save;
He will make a way, You will make a way.

Our God is fighting for us always,
Our God is fighting for us all;
Our God is fighting for us always;
We are not alone, we are not alone.

There Is Always Something Over

Words: Margaret E. Barber
Music: Robert Lowry

There is always something over,
When we taste our gracious Lord;
Every cup He fills o’erfloweth,
Rich supply He doth afford.
Nothing narrow, nothing stinted,
Ever issued from His store;
To His own He gives full measure,
Running over, evermore.

There is always something over,
When we, from the Father’s hand,
Take our portion with thanksgiving,
Praising for the things He planned.
Satisfaction, full and deepening,
All our need He doth supply,
When the heart has tasted Jesus
Its desires to satisfy.

There is always something over,
When we share in all His love;
Unplumbed depths still lie beneath us,
Unscaled heights rise far above.
Human lips can never utter
All His wondrous tenderness.
We can only praise and wonder
And His Name forever bless.

O For A Thousand Tongues

Words: Charles Wesley; Music: Carl G. Gläser

O for a thousand tongues to sing
My great Redeemer’s praise,
The glories of my God and King,
The triumphs of His grace.

My gracious Master and my God,
Assist me to proclaim,
To spread through all the earth abroad
The honors of Thy name.

Jesus! The name that charms our fears,
That bids our sorrows cease;
‘Tis music in the sinner’s ears,
‘Tis life and health and peace.

His love my heart has captive made,
His captive would I be!
For He was bound and scourged and died,
My captive soul to free.

He breaks the pow’r of canceled sin,
He sets the prisoner free;
His blood can make the foulest clean—
His blood availed for me!

So now Thy blessed Name I love,
Thy will would e’er be mine!
Had I a thousand hearts to give,
My Lord, they all were Thine!

Jesus Paid It All

Words: Elvina M. Hall; Music: John T. Grape

I hear the Savior say,
“Thy strength indeed is small,
Child of weakness watch and pray,
Find in Me Thine all in all.”

Jesus paid it all,
All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow.

Lord now indeed I find
Thy power, and Thine alone,
Can change the leper’s spots
And melt the heart of stone.

For nothing good have I
Whereby Thy grace to claim;
I’ll wash my garments white
In the blood of Calv’ry’s Lamb.

And when before the throne
I stand in Him complete,
“Jesus died my soul to save,”
My lips shall still repeat.

Oh, praise the One who paid my debt
And raised this life up from the dead!

I Love My Master

Words: Frances Ridley Havergal; Music: Alexander C. Ewing

I love, I love my Master,
I will not go out free,
For He is my Redeemer,
He paid the price for me;
I would not leave His service,
It is so sweet and blest
And in the weariest moments
He gives the truest rest.

My Master shed His life-blood,
My vassal life to win,
And save me from the bondage
Of tyrant self and sin;
He chose me for His service,
And gave me power to choose
That blessed, perfect freedom,
Which I shall never lose.

I would not halve my service,
His only it must be!
His only, who so loved me,
And gave Himself for me;
Rejoicing and adoring,
Henceforth my song shall be:
I love, I love my Master,
I will not go out free.

2 Kings 13:14-19
14 Now when Elisha had fallen sick with the illness of which he was to die, Joash king of Israel went down to him and wept before him, crying, “My father, my father! The chariots of Israel and its horsemen!” 15 And Elisha said to him, “Take a bow and arrows.” So he took a bow and arrows. 16 Then he said to the king of Israel, “Draw the bow,” and he drew it. And Elisha laid his hands on the king’s hands. 17 And he said, “Open the window eastward,” and he opened it. Then Elisha said, “Shoot,” and he shot. And he said, “The Lord’s arrow of victory, the arrow of victory over Syria! For you shall fight the Syrians in Aphek until you have made an end of them.” 18 And he said, “Take the arrows,” and he took them. And he said to the king of Israel, “Strike the ground with them.” And he struck three times and stopped. 19 Then the man of God was angry with him and said, “You should have struck five or six times; then you would have struck down Syria until you had made an end of it, but now you will strike down Syria only three times.”

Paul’s Warfare

2 Corinthians 10:3–5
For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ…

Romans 1:5–6
through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith for the sake of his name among all the nations, including you who are called to belong to Jesus Christ…


2 Kings 13:20-21
20 So Elisha died, and they buried him. Now bands of Moabites used to invade the land in the spring of the year. 21 And as a man was being buried, behold, a marauding band was seen and the man was thrown into the grave of Elisha, and as soon as the man touched the bones of Elisha, he revived and stood on his feet.
