Goodness Of God

performed by Jenn Johnson


I love You, Lord

Oh Your mercy never fails me

All my days, I've been held in Your hands


From the moment that I wake up

Until I lay my head

Oh, I will sing of the goodness of God



Cause all my life You have been faithful

And all my life You have been so, so good

With every breath that I am able

Oh, I will sing of the goodness of God



I love Your voice

You have led me through the fire

And in darkest night You are close like no other



I've known You as a Father

I've known You as a Friend

And I have lived in the goodness of God, yeah



And all my life You have been faithful, ohh

And all my life You have been so, so good

With every breath that I am able

Oh, I will sing of the goodness of God, yeah



'Cause Your goodness is running after, it's running after me

Your goodness is running after, it's running after me

With my life laid down, I'm surrendered now

I give You everything



'Cause Your goodness is running after, it's running after me, oh-ohh

'Cause Your goodness is running after, it's running after me

Your goodness is running after, it's running after me

With my life laid down, I'm surrendered now

I give You everything

'Cause Your goodness is running after, it keeps running after me



And all my life You have been faithful

And all my life You have been so, so good

With every breath that I am able

Oh, I'm gonna sing of the goodness of God

I'm gonna sing, I'm gonna sing



'Cause all my life You have been faithful

And all my life You have been so, so good

With every breath that I am able

Oh, I'm gonna sing of the goodness of God

Oh, I'm gonna sing of the goodness of God

By Your Side

Tenth Avenue North


Why are you striving these days

Why are you trying to earn grace

Why are you crying

Let Me lift up your face

Just don't turn away



Why are you looking for love

Why are you still searching

As if I'm not enough

To where will you go child

Tell Me where will you run

To where will you run



'Cause I'll be by your side wherever you fall

In the dead of night whenever you call

And please don't fight these hands that are holding you

My hands are holding you



Look at these hands at My side

They swallowed the grave on that night

When I drank the world's sin

So I could carry you in

And give you life

I want to give you life



And I'll be by your side wherever you fall

In the dead of night whenever you call

And please don't fight these hands that are holding you

My hands are holding you



Here at My side wherever you fall

In the dead of night whenever you call

And please don't fight these hands that are holding you

My hands are holding you



'Cause I, I love you

I want you to know

That I, yeah I'll love you

I'll never let you go, no, no



And I'll be by your side wherever you fall

In the dead of night whenever you call

And please don't fight these hands that are holding you

My hands are holding you



Here at My side wherever you fall

In the dead of night whenever you call

And please don't fight these hands that are holding you

My hands are holding you

Here at My side, My hands are holding you

Ohhh...

What Do We Value? Series #2 - Loving, Gracious, and Accepting




Value #2

Loving, Gracious, and Accepting

We are committed to welcoming everyone - the unconvinced, the casual believer, and the fully committed with no prerequisites of church background or prior belief - to worship the living God.




Romans 15:5-7 NIV

May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.


Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.





Luke 15:11-20a NIV

The Parable of the Lost Son

11 Jesus continued: “There was a man who had two sons. 12 The younger one said to his father, ‘Father, give me my share of the estate.’ So he divided his property between them.


13 “Not long after that, the younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living. 14 After he had spent everything, there was a severe famine in that whole country, and he began to be in need. 15 So he went and hired himself out to a citizen of that country, who sent him to his fields to feed pigs. 16 He longed to fill his stomach with the pods that the pigs were eating, but no one gave him anything.


17 “When he came to his senses, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have food to spare, and here I am starving to death! 18 I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. 19 I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired servants.’ 20 So he got up and went to his father.





Luke 15:20b-24 NIV

“But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.


21 “The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’


22 “But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. 23 Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. 24 For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate.






Luke 15:25-32 NIV

25 “Meanwhile, the older son was in the field. When he came near the house, he heard music and dancing. 26 So he called one of the servants and asked him what was going on. 27 ‘Your brother has come,’ he replied, ‘and your father has killed the fattened calf because he has him back safe and sound.’

28 “The older brother became angry and refused to go in. So his father went out and pleaded with him. 29 But he answered his father, ‘Look! All these years I’ve been slaving for you and never disobeyed your orders. Yet you never gave me even a young goat so I could celebrate with my friends. 30 But when this son of yours who has squandered your property with prostitutes comes home, you kill the fattened calf for him!’


31 “‘My son,’ the father said, ‘you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. 32 But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’”




Discussion Questions

  1. Do you identify more with the son who has wandered off to a foreign land and needs to come home? Or with the son who has served faithfully in his father’s house, but maybe has lost the joy of it?

  2. If you had to rate yourself on a scale from 1 to 10, how welcoming are you to the “lost son” types as they currently are? How about for the joyless older brother types?
