Hats Off! // Part One

Revelation 3:7-8 NLT

Write this letter to the angel of the church in Philadelphia. This is the message from the one who is holy and true, the one who has the key of David. What he opens, no one can close; and what he closes, no one can open: 8 “I know all the things you do, and I have opened a door for you that no one can close. You have little strength, yet you obeyed my word and did not deny me.


Life is short so make it matter.


Establish your faith.


Always strive to see the big picture.


Bottom line – people matter more than stuff.


Ecclesiastes 3:9-14 NLT:

What do people really get for all their hard work? 10 I have seen the burden God has placed on us all. 11 Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end. 12 So I concluded there is nothing better than to be happy and enjoy ourselves as long as we can. 13 And people should eat and drink and enjoy the fruits of their labor, for these are gifts from God. 14 And I know that whatever God does is final. Nothing can be added to it or taken from it. God’s purpose is that people should fear him.


Remember always, staying where we are is never an option.


Don’t let faithless people tell you that you can’t.


Don’t let failure hold you back.


Don’t let the future scare you off.


Joshua 1:9 KJV

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

Your Love Never Fails

– Chris McClarney and Anthony Skinner

Verse 1

Nothing can separate

Even if I ran away

Your love never fails

I know I still make mistakes but

You have new mercies for me ev’ryday

Your love never fails

Chorus

(And) You stay the same through the ages

Your love never changes

There may be pain in the night

But joy comes in the morning

And when the oceans rage

I don’t have to be afraid

Because I know that You love me

(Your love never fails)

Verse 2

The wind is strong and the water’s deep

But I’m not alone here in these open seas

Your love never fails

The chasm is far too wide

I never thought I’d reach the other side

Your love never fails

Bridge

You make all things

Work together for my good

You make all things

Work together for my good

 

This Blood

– Rita Springer and Paulette Wooten

Verse 1

There is a blood that cost a life

Paid my way death its price

When it flowed down from the cross

My sins were gone my sins forgot

There is a grave tried to hide

This precious blood that gave me life

In three days He breathed again

Rose to stand in my defense

Chorus

So I come to tell you He’s alive

To tell you that He dries every tear that falls

So I come to tell you that He saves

To shout and to proclaim

That He is coming back for you

This life this price this blood this one

Verse 2

Oh there is a blood oh and it sights the blind

It heals the sick the lonely finds

Oh it has the power to free the bound

As chains that fall upon the ground

So pour it out to cleanse my soul

And let its liquid glory flow

Because it lives to make me whole

I owe my life I owe my all

Ending

This life this price this blood this one

How Great Thou Art (Hymn)

– Stuart Wesley Keene Hine

O Lord my God

When I in awesome wonder

Consider all the worlds

Thy hands have made

I see the stars

I hear the rolling thunder

Thy pow’r thru’out

The universe displayed

My Savior God to Thee

How great Thou art

My Savior God to Thee

How great Thou art

When through the woods

And forest glades I wander

And hear the birds

Sing sweetly in the trees

When I look down

From lofty mountain grandeur

And hear the brook

And feel the gentle breeze

Verse 3

And when I think

That God His Son not sparing

Sent Him to die

I scarce can take it in

That on the cross

My burden gladly bearing

He bled and died

To take away my sin

Verse 4

When Christ shall come

With shout of acclamation

And take me home

What joy shall fill my heart

Then I shall bow

In humble adoration

And there proclaim

My God how great Thou art
