  • Hymn

NOW to the power of God supreme
be everlasting honours given;
He saves from hell – we bless His name;
He calls our wandering feet to heaven.

2 Not for our duties or deserts,
but of His own abounding grace
He works salvation in our hearts,
and forms a people for His praise.

3 ’Twas His own purpose that begun
to rescue rebels doomed to die;
He gave us grace in Christ His Son
before He spread the starry sky.

4 Jesus the Lord appears at last,
and makes His Father’s counsels known;
declares the great transactions past,
and brings immortal blessings down.

5 He dies – and in that dreadful night
did all the powers of hell destroy;
rising, He brought our heaven to light,
and took possession of the joy.

Numbers 14:1-38


  • Hymn

When God begins a work
of grace within our hearts
he saves our souls and sets us right
and all his love imparts.

2. A people saved to serve
is what the Lord desires,
and works in us to will and do
what his good plan requires.

3. In partnership with Christ
we serve his gospel true;
as servants of the Servant-King
we serve his people too.

4. May love for Christ abound
whatever comes our way,
through good or ill, in wealth or want,
until the eternal Day.

5. God who began the work
will bring it to the end,
and bless this partnership with Christ
our Saviour, Lord and Friend.

  • Reading N°2

Phil.2:12-18

 
Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.

 
Do all things without grumbling or questioning, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast to the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I may be proud that I did not run in vain or labour in vain. Even if I am to be poured out as a drink offering upon the sacrificial offering of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with you all. Likewise you also should be glad and rejoice with me.


  • Hymn

 
What gift of grace is Jesus my redeemer
There is no more for heaven now to give
He is my joy, my righteousness, and freedom
My steadfast love, my deep and boundless peace

 
To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus
For my life is wholly bound to His
Oh how strange and divine, I can sing: all is mine!
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

 
The night is dark but I am not forsaken
For by my side, the Saviour He will stay
I labour on in weakness and rejoicing
For in my need, His power is displayed

 
To this I hold, my Shepherd will defend me
Through the deepest valley He will lead
Oh the night has been won, and I shall overcome!
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

 
No fate I dread, I know I am forgiven
The future sure, the price it has been paid
For Jesus bled and suffered for my pardon
And He was raised to overthrow the grave

 
To this I hold, my sin has been defeated
Jesus now and ever is my plea
Oh the chains are released, I can sing: I am free!
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

 
With every breath I long to follow Jesus
For He has said that He will bring me home
And day by day I know He will renew me
Until I stand with joy before the throne

 
To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus
All the glory evermore to Him
When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat
Yet not I, but through Christ in me!

 
To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus
All the glory evermore to Him
When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat
Yet not I, but through Christ in me!

 
When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat
Yet not I, but through Christ in me!
Yet not I, but through Christ in me!
Yet not I, but through Christ in me!


  • Prayer


  • Hymn

 
FATHER of peace, and God of love,
 
we own Your power to save,
 
that power by which our Shepherd rose
 
victorious o’er the grave.

 
 
2 We triumph in that Shepherd’s name,
 
still watchful for our good;
 
who brought the eternal covenant down,
 
and sealed it with His blood.

 
 
3 So may Your Spirit seal our souls,
 
and mould them to Your will,
 
that our weak hearts no more may stray,
 
but keep Your covenant still;

 
4 Still may we gain superior strength,
 
and press with vigour on;
 
till full perfection crown our hopes,
 
and fix us near Your throne.


  • Sermon


  • Hymn

 
JESUS, I am resting, resting
 
in the joy of what Thou art;
 
I am finding out the greatness
 
of Thy loving heart.
 
Thou hast bid me gaze upon Thee,
 
and Thy beauty fills my soul,
 
for by Thy transforming power
 
Thou hast made me whole.

 
 
Jesus, I am resting, resting
in the joy of what Thou art;
I am finding out the greatness
of Thy loving heart.

 
 
 
 
 
2 O how great Thy loving kindness,
 
vaster, broader than the sea!
 
O how marvellous Thy goodness,
 
lavished all on me!
 
Yes, I rest in Thee, Belovèd,
 
know what wealth of grace is Thine,
 
know Thy certainty of promise,
 
and have made it mine.

 
 
3 Simply trusting Thee, Lord Jesus,
 
I behold Thee as Thou art,
 
and Thy love, so pure, so changeless,
 
satisfies my heart;
 
satisfies its deepest longings,
 
meets, supplies its every need,
 
compasseth me round with blessings;
 
Thine is love indeed!

 
 
4 Ever lift Thy face upon me,
 
as I work and wait for Thee;
 
resting ’neath Thy smile, Lord Jesus,
 
earth’s dark shadows flee.
 
Brightness of my Father’s glory,
 
sunshine of my Father’s face,
 
keep me ever trusting, resting;
 
fill me with Thy grace.
