Sunday 11th July 


Welcome to our online service. We hope this find you well and that you can take some time to sit in the presence of the Lord our God this morning. Today Rich is thinking about the Cross, the power of the cross and the forgiveness and freedom that it affords us as Christians – salvation and redemption freely given to you and me.

Ephesians 2:8-9 says...
"For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

and 2 Corinthians 5:21...
For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

crossJesus poured out his life and blood for us freely, he poured out his love, Rich refers to our Lord as love in a prayer later by mistake but He is love and through Jesus’s love, grace and mercy we are saved and have eternal life this morning. The cross is the key that unlocks our hearts and reopens our connection with our Creator. There is power in what Jesus did on the cross  power that sets us all free. Jesus should be the centrepiece in our lives and we exist to glorify him. Jesus willingly did what needed to be done for you and for me so let us ‘come’ to the foot of that cross this morning and praise His holy name.
 

Let us pray –
Father God we thank you this morning for all you are, all you have done and all that you will continue to do and be in our lives. We come to the foot of the cross this morning to ask that you will always be the centre of our lives and to praise Your Holy name, in Jesus name, Amen.



Let us praise and sing:

Praise the Name of the Lord most High

Amazing Grace [my chains are gone]

Lead me to the cross

Please take the bread and wine now. Again, please take yourself to the foot of the cross, confess your sins, your struggles, your heartaches and immerse yourself in the love poured out for you, experience the fullness of His forgiveness, the grace emanating from his wounds and experience the power of salvation. Rest in his presence.
 
b&wThe Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes. (Corinthians 11:23-29 NIV) 

Raise up in prayer, the nation, the community where you live and work, your family and friends, those less fortunate and the world at this time. You are blameless running into the arms of majesty.


Boldly I approach {Art of Celebration]

The Fathers House

Let us continue to glorify our God this week – may our weakness be a canvass for His strength.

May the blessing of God Almighty radiate through your smile, be helpful through your hands and shine through your heart this week. In Jesus name. Amen
