Songs for November 22nd 2015
We continue in John 7 this week.
14 About the middle of the feast Jesus went up into the temple and began
teaching. 15 The Jews therefore marveled, saying, “How is it that this man
has learning, when he has never studied?” 16 So Jesus answered them, “My
teaching is not mine, but his who sent me. 17 If anyone's will is to do God's
will, he will know whether the teaching is from God or whether I am
speaking on my own authority. 18 The one who speaks on his own authority
seeks his own glory; but the one who seeks the glory of him who sent him is
true, and in him there is no falsehood. 19 Has not Moses given you the law?
Yet none of you keeps the law. Why do you seek to kill me?” 20 The crowd
answered, “You have a demon! Who is seeking to kill you?” 21 Jesus
answered them, “I did one work, and you all marvel at it. 22 Moses gave you
circumcision (not that it is from Moses, but from the fathers), and you
circumcise a man on the Sabbath. 23 If on the Sabbath a man receives
circumcision, so that the law of Moses may not be broken, are you angry with
me because on the Sabbath I made a man's whole body well? 24 Do not judge
by appearances, but judge with right judgment.”
As seen from the passage, the people did not have the correct view of Jesus because
they were not doing the will of God. Jesus says, “If anyone's will is to do God's will,
he will know whether the teaching is from God or whether I am speaking on my own
This Sunday, we desire to recognize the truth of who Jesus is and His
authority being from God. We are going to do this musically by singing the following
All Hail the Power of Jesus Name – Instead of the question of “How is it that
this man has learning” we recognize Christ’s lordship and proclaim to crown
Him Lord of all. Let angels fall at his feet. To Him all majesty ascribe. He is the
creator of knowledge.
Come Thou Fount – Because Jesus has all power, we now desire he would
come again. This hymn is a perfect example of the attitude we desire to have
for God. To recognize Jesus sought us when we were wandering. Christ
rescued us. Even though the hymn begs God to bind our wandering heart to
God, we can rest in the fact Jesus has redeemed us and nothing is able to
separate us from Christ.
I Stand Amazed in the Presence – This song is highlighted by the
proclamation of How marvelous is the Savior’s love for us.
Whom Shall I Fear – Such a powerful reminder that we know who goes
before us and stand behind us: God. He is the God of angel armies and
crushes the enemy under His feet. Through Christ, we have the victory.
All to Us – In light of all we’ve heard, sung, and read we desire that the glory
of God would be the passion of the church.
Come declare that with us this Sunday.
