O Praise Him

David Crowder Band


Turn your ear

To heaven and hear

The noise inside

The sound of angels' awe

The sound of angels' songs

And all this for a King

We could join and sing

All to Christ the King


How constant, how divine

This song of ours will rise

O, how constant, how divine

This love of ours will rise

Will rise


O praise Him

O praise him

He is Holy

He is Holy (yeah)


Turn your gaze

To heaven and raise

A joyous noise


The sound of salvation come

The sound of rescued ones

And all this for a King

Angels join to sing

All for Christ our King


How infinite and sweet

This love so rescuing

O, how infinitely sweet

This great love that has redeemed

As one we sing


Alleluia

Alleluia

He is Holy

He is Holy (yeah)



Indescribable

Chris Tomlin


From the highest of heights to the depths of the sea

Creation's revealing Your majesty

From the colors of fall to the fragrance of spring

Every creature unique in the song that it sings

All exclaiming


Indescribable, uncontainable,

You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.

You are amazing God

All powerful, untameable,

Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim

You are amazing God


Who has told every lightning bolt where it should go

Or seen heavenly storehouses laden with snow

Who imagined the sun and gives source to its light

Yet conceals it to bring us the coolness of night

None can fathom


Indescribable, uncontainable,

You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name

You are amazing God

All powerful, untameable,

Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim

You are amazing God

You are amazing God


Indescribable, uncontainable,

You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.

You are amazing God


All powerful, untameable,

Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim

You are amazing God


Indescribable, uncontainable,

You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.

You are amazing God


Incomparable, unchangeable

You see the depths of my heart and You love me the same

You are amazing God

You are amazing God




Here Again

Elevation Worship


Can't go back to the beginning

Can't control what tomorrow will bring

But I know here in the middle

Is the place where You promise to be


I'm not enough unless You come

Will You meet me here again

Cause all I want is all You are

Will You meet me here again


As I walk now through the valley

Let Your love rise above every fear

Like the sun shaping the shadow

In my weakness Your glory appears


I'm not enough unless You come

Will You meet me here again

Cause all I want is all You are

Will You meet me here again

[x2]


Not for a minute

Was I forsaken

The Lord is in this place

The Lord is in this place


Come Holy Spirit

Dry bones awaken

The Lord is in this place

The Lord is in this place




No Longer Slaves

Bethel Music


You unravel me with a melody

You surround me with a song

Of deliverance from my enemies

'Til all my fears are gone


I'm no longer a slave to fear

I am a child of God

I'm no longer a slave to fear

I am a child of God


From my mother's womb

You have chosen me

Love has called my name

I've been born again to a family

Your blood flows through my veins


I'm no longer a slave to fear

I am a child of God

I'm no longer a slave to fear

I am a child of God

I'm no longer a slave to fear

I am a child of God

I'm no longer a slave to fear

I am a child of God


I am surrounded

By the arms of the Father

I am surrounded

By songs of deliverance


We've been liberated

From our bondage

We're the sons and the daughters

Let us sing our freedom


You split the sea

So I could walk right through it

My fears are drowned in perfect love

You rescued me

And I will stand and sing

I am a child of God [x2]


Yes, I am

I am a child of God

I am a child of God


Yes, I am

I am a child of God

Full of faith

Yes, I am a child of God

I am a child of God


I'm no longer a slave to fear

I am a child of God

I'm no longer a slave to fear

I am a child of God

Mark 16:15 NLT

GO INTO the All the WORLD and

Preach the GOOD NEWS to

ALL creation”




  1. WHO are we called to? (Again, not WHAT)

  2. HOW do we “PREACH THE GOOD NEWS” to them?

QUOTE

The early preachers of the good news had

one subject and only one - JESUS. This was their ‘word” that they broadcast with such perseverance.


- Michael Green

Author, Evangelism in the Early Church





1 Corinthians 1:22-23a NIV

22 Jews demand signs and Greeks look for wisdom, 23 but we preach Christ crucified


Romans 1:16 NLT

16 For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes—the Jew first and also the Gentile

Luke 19:2-9 NLT (abbreviated)

2 There was a man there named Zacchaeus. He was the chief tax collector in the region, and he had become very rich….5 When Jesus came by, He looked up at Zacchaeus and called him by name. “Zacchaeus!” He said. “Quick, come down! I must be a guest in your home today.”…

8 Zacchaeus stood before the Lord and said, “I will give half my wealth to the poor, Lord, and if I have cheated people on their taxes, I will give them back four times as much!”

9 Jesus responded, “Salvation has come to this home today!"








WHO are you called to? And

HOW will you PREACH the GOOD NEWS to them

In a way that is meaningful to THEM?

These are questions that

Need answering
