God Cleanses Us

O Love Incomprehensible

A. Steele | A. M. Toplady | K. Twit

chorus
O Love incomprehensible
That made Thee bleed for me
The Judge of all has
suffered death
To set His prisoner free

What pain
What soul-oppressing pain
The Great Redeemer bore
While bloody sweat
like drops of rain
Distilled from every pore!

chorus
O Love incomprehensible
That made Thee bleed for me
The Judge of all has
suffered death
To set His prisoner free

Arraigned at Pilate’s shameful bar
Unparalleled disgrace!
See spotless innocence appear
In guilt’s detested place

chorus
O Love incomprehensible
That made Thee bleed for me
The Judge of all has
suffered death
To set His prisoner free

“’Tis finished!” now aloud He cries
No more the Law requires
And now, amazing sacrifice
The Lord of Life expires!

chorus
O Love incomprehensible
That made Thee bleed for me
The Judge of all has
suffered death
To set His prisoner free

On Thee alone my hope relies
Beneath Thy cross I fall
My Lord, my Life, my Sacrifice
My Savior and my All!

chorus
O Love incomprehensible
That made Thee bleed for me
The Judge of all has
suffered death
To set His prisoner free

How Deep The Father’s Love For Us

S. Townend

How deep the Father’s love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure
How great the pain of searing loss
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar
the chosen One
Bring many sons to glory

Behold the Man upon a cross
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers
It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has
brought me life
I know that it is finished

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no powr’s, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection
Why should I gain
from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom

Why should I gain
from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom

Psalm 62

A. Keyes | S. Townend

My soul finds rest in God alone
My rock and my salvation
A fortress strong against my foes
And I will not be shaken
Though lips may bless
and hearts may curse
And lies like arrows pierce me
I’ll fix my heart on righteousness
I’ll look to Him who hears me

Find rest my soul in God alone
Amid the world’s temptations
When evil seeks to take a hold
I’ll cling to my salvation
Though riches come and riches go
Don’t set your heart upon them
The fields of hope in which I sow
Are harvested in heaven

chorus
O praise Him hallelujah
My Delight and my Reward
Everlasting never failing
My Redeemer my God

I’ll set my gaze on God alone
And trust in Him completely
With ev’ry day pour out my soul
And He will prove His mercy
Though life is but a fleeting breath
A sigh too brief to measure
My King has crushed
the curse of death
And I am His forever

chorus
O praise Him hallelujah
My Delight and my Reward
Everlasting never failing
My Redeemer my God

O praise Him, O praise Him
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
(x3)

chorus
O praise Him hallelujah
My Delight and my Reward
Everlasting never failing
My Redeemer my God

Our God

J. Myrin | M. Redman | J. Reeves | C. Tomlin

Water You turned into wine
Opened the eyes of the blind
There’s no one like You
None like You

Into the darkness You shine
Out of the ashes we rise
There’s no one like You
None like You

chorus
Our God is greater,
Our God is stronger
God You are higher
Than any other
Our God is healer
Awesome in power
Our God, our God

Into the darkness You shine
Out of the ashes we rise
There’s no one like You
None like You

chorus
Our God is greater,
Our God is stronger
God You are higher
Than any other
Our God is healer
Awesome in power
Our God, our God
(repeat)

And if our God is for us
Then who could ever stop us
And if our God is with us
Then what could stand against
And if our God is for us
Then who could ever stop us
And if our God is with us
Then what could stand against

chorus
Our God is greater,
Our God is stronger
God You are higher
Than any other
Our God is healer
Awesome in power
Our God, our God
(repeat)

The Giving of Tithes & Offerings

Song of Preparation
Your Love Is Strong

J. Foreman

Heavenly Father
You always amaze me,
Let Your kingdom come
In my world and in my life
Give me the food I need
To live through today,
And forgive me as I forgive
The people that wrong me
Lead me far from temptation
Deliver me from the evil one

I look out the window
The birds are composing
Not a note is out of tune
Or out of place
I walk to the meadow
And stare at the flowers
Better dressed than any girl
On her wedding day
So why should I worry
Why do I freak out
God knows what I need
You know what I need

chorus
Your love is, Your love is
Your love is strong
(x3)

The kingdom of the heavens
Is now advancing
Invade my heart
Invade this broken town
The kingdom of the heavens
Is buried treasure
Would you sell yourself to buy
The one you’ve found
Two things You told me
That You are strong
and You love me
Yes You love me

chorus
Your love is, Your love is
Your love is strong
(x4)

Our God in heaven
Hallowed be Thy name
above all names
Your kingdom come
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven
Give us today our daily bread
Forgive us weary sinners
Keep us far from our vices and
Deliver us from these prisons

The Sermon
“The Battle for Love”

Rev. José Portillo
Church Planter, Vive Charlotte

God Blesses Us and Sends Us Out

Song of Response
All I Have Is Christ

J. Kauflin

I once was lost in darkest night
Yet thought I knew the way
The sin that promised joy and life
Had led me to the grave
I had no hope that You would own
A rebel to Your will
And if You had not loved me first
I would refuse You still

But as I ran my hell-bound race
Indifferent to the cost
You looked upon my helpless state
And led me to the cross
And I beheld God’s love displayed
You suffered in my place
You bore the wrath
reserved for me
Now all I know is grace

chorus
Hallelujah! All I have is Christ
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life
Hallelujah! All I have is Christ
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life

Now Lord I would be Yours alone
And live so all might see
The strength to follow
Your commands
Could never come from me
O Father use my ransomed life
In any way You choose
And let my song forever be
My only boast is You

chorus
Hallelujah! All I have is Christ
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life
Hallelujah! All I have is Christ
Hallelujah! Jesus is my life
