Welcome back!
Today we have worship led by our own Boldizsar and Patricia, a talk by Simon Ramsbotham with the Bible readings he references and some prayer points from BUGB.

We’ve also added a familiar KidZone worship song and a Giving link if you’d like to make an online offering.

Worship

While I Wait

Deep within my heart, I know You’ve won
I know You’ve overcome
And even in the dark, when I’m undone
I still believe it

I live by faith, and not by sight
Sometimes miracles take time

While I wait, I will worship
Lord, I’ll worship Your name
While I wait, I will trust You
Lord, I’ll trust You all the same

When I fall apart, You are my strength
Help me not forget
Seeing every scar, You make me whole
You’re my healer

You’re faithful every day
Your promises remain
You’re faithful every day
Your promises remain

Though I don’t understand it
I will worship with my pain
You are God, You are worthy
You are with me all the way

Still (Hide me now)
Hide me now under Your wings.
Cover me within Your mighty hand.

When the oceans rise and thunders roar,
I will soar with You above the storm.
Father, You are King over the flood;
I will be still and know You are God.

Find rest, my soul, in Christ alone.
Know His power in quietness and trust.

Your joy oh Lord
will be my strength
Renouncing fear
we stand in your glorious grace.

Reuben Morgan

I see the King of glory
I see the King of glory
Coming on the clouds with fire;
The whole earth shakes,
The whole earth shakes.
I see His love and mercy
Washing over all our sin;
The people sing,
The people sing:

Hosanna,
Hosanna,
Hosanna in the highest.
(Repeat)

I see a generation
Rising up to take their place,
With selfless faith,
With selfless faith.
I see a near revival
Stirring as we pray and seek;
We’re on our knees,
We’re on our knees.

Heal my heart and make it clean;
Open up my eyes to the things unseen.
Show me how to love
Like You have loved me,
Break my heart for what breaks Yours;
Everything I am for Your kingdom’s cause,
As I walk from earth into eternity.

Brooke Fraser

Talk

Philippians 3:20-21
  1. But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Saviour from there, the Lord Jesus Christ,
  2. who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.
Colossians & Matthew
Colossians 3:2
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.

Matthew 6:33
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Corinthians
1 Corinthians 2:9
However, as it is written: ‘What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived’ – the things God has prepared for those who love him

1 Corinthians 3:2
I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready.

1 Corinthians 15:50 - 57
  1. I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.
  2. Listen, I tell you a mystery: we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed –
  3. in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.
  4. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality.
  5. When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: ‘Death has been swallowed up in victory.’
  6. ‘Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?’
  7. The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.
  8. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Peter 2:11-12
  1. Dear friends, I urge you, as foreigners and exiles, to abstain from sinful desires, which wage war against your soul.
  2. Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.
