This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
Joshua 1:8

Blessed is the man
    who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners,
    nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
but his delight is in the law of the Lord,
    and on his law he meditates day and night.
He is like a tree
    planted by streams of water
that yields its fruit in its season,
    and its leaf does not wither.
In all that he does, he prospers.
Psalm 1:1-3

I will meditate on your precepts
    and fix my eyes on your ways.

Oh how I love your law!
    It is my meditation all the day.
Psalm 119:15, 97

You keep him in perfect peace
    whose mind is stayed on you,
    because he trusts in you.”
Isaiah 26:3

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
Matthew 11:28-30

“Religion is what a man does with his solitude.”
– William Temple

“We live, in fact, in a world starved for solitude, silence, and private: and therefore starved for meditation and true friendship.” 
― C.S. Lewis

“Work is not always required. There is such a thing as sacred idleness.” 
― George MacDonald

“There are times when solitude is better than society, and silence is wiser than speech. We should be better Christians if we were more alone, waiting upon God, and gathering through meditation on His Word spiritual strength for labor in his service. We ought to muse upon the things of God, because we thus get the real nutriment out of them. . . . Why is it that some Christians, although they hear many sermons, make but slow advances in the divine life? Because they neglect their closets, and do not thoughtfully meditate on God’s Word. They love the wheat, but they do not grind it; they would have the corn, but they will not go forth into the fields to gather it; the fruit hangs upon the tree, but they will not pluck it; the water flows at their feet, but they will not stoop to drink it. From such folly deliver us, O Lord. . . .” 
― Charles Haddon Spurgeon



I waited patiently for the Lord;
    he inclined to me and heard my cry.
He drew me up from the pit of destruction,
    out of the miry bog,
and set my feet upon a rock,
    making my steps secure.
He put a new song in my mouth,
    a song of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear,
    and put their trust in the Lord.

Psalm 40:1-3 



Open the Eyes of My Heart

[Verse 1]
Open the eyes of my heart, Lord
Open the eyes of my heart
I want to see You, I want to see You

To see You high and lifted up
Shining in the light of Your glory
Pour out Your power and love
As we sing holy, holy, holy



Holy, holy, holy
Holy, holy, holy
Holy, holy, holy
I want to see You



Good Good Father

Oh, I’ve heard a thousand stories
of what they think you’re like
But I’ve heard the tender whisper
of love in the dead of night
And you tell me that you’re pleased
And that I’m never alone

You’re a Good, Good Father
It’s who you are, It’s who you are
It’s who you are

And I’m loved by you
It’s who I am, It’s who I am
It’s who I am

[Verse 2]
Oh, I’ve seen many searching
for answers far and wide
But I know we’re all searching
For answers only you provide
Cause you know just what we need
Before we say a word


You are perfect in all of your ways
You are perfect in all of your ways
You are perfect in all of your ways to us

[Verse 3]
Oh, this love so undeniable
I, I can hardly speak
Peace so unexplainable
I, I can hardly think

As you call me deeper still
As you call me deeper still
As you call me deeper still
Into love, love, love




Psalm 46

God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble at its swelling.

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy habitation of the Most High.
God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved;
God will help her when morning dawns.
The nations rage, the kingdoms totter;
he utters his voice, the earth melts.
The Lord of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.

Come, behold the works of the Lord,
how he has brought desolations on the earth.
He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
he breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
he burns the chariots with fire.
“Be still, and know that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!”
The Lord of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.


Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus

[Verse 1]
Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus
Just to take Him at His word
Just to rest upon His promise
Just to know thus saith the Lord

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er
Jesus, Jesus, Precious Jesus
O for grace to trust Him more

[Verse 2]
O how sweet to trust in Jesus
Just to trust His cleansing blood
Just in simple faith to plunge me
’Neath the healing, cleansing flood.


[Verse 3]
I’m so glad I learned to trust Thee
Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend
And I know that Thou art with me
Wilt be with me to the end





No Summer Nights this week – Due to Father’s Day, we chose not to schedule something tonight night (6/18). However, next Sunday (6/25) we’ll be at The Point for Van Leeuwen ice cream (6:30pm). We’ve had really good turn-outs for these events so far (15-30 each week), and a great rotation of different people from our church; even bringing friends and family with them! I hope you can make it for these low-key, social events when you’re in town. By the way, if you know of a source for firewood, we need it for our bonfire in July. Please get in touch with Johnny Park.

Promotion Sunday – On July 9th, our children and youth ministries will be promoting all of the grades. Also in the worship service that day, we’ll recognize our graduates and talk more about our heart and vision for kids and students at King’s Cross.

Thinking about the Fall – We’re planning to launch Fall community groups the first week of September, after Labor Day. We are seeking more group leaders, hosts, and teachers, who will gather others around sermon discussion questions or another biblical topic. If you might be willing to serve in this way, or if you have an idea you’d like to throw our way, contact Joe Brown or Jeff Kyle to talk about it. We look forward to what God will do among us in the Fall.


If you would like to give electronically, you may do so using the “Giving” tab at the bottom-right corner of the mobile app. There are also white baskets in the back of our worship space, where you can give via check, made out to King’s Cross Church, or cash.


“Exhausted Jesus”

Mark 1:32-39, 45

That evening at sundown they brought to him all who were sick or oppressed by demons. And the whole city was gathered together at the door. And he healed many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons. And he would not permit the demons to speak, because they knew him.

And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed. And Simon and those who were with him searched for him, and they found him and said to him, “Everyone is looking for you.” And he said to them, “Let us go on to the next towns, that I may preach there also, for that is why I came out.” And he went throughout all Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and casting out demons…

But he went out and began to talk freely about it, and to spread the news, so that Jesus could no longer openly enter a town, but was out in desolate places, and people were coming to him from every quarter.




Good God

[Verse 1]
Be still my soul
Be still my soul
Be still and know my God is here
Be still my soul
Be still my soul
Be still and know my God is here

All that I need to know is this
You are a good God
The Maker of Heaven calls me His
You are a good God
And Your heart beats in my chest
You are a good God
All that I have to do is rest
You are a good God

[Verse 2]
I won’t be afraid
I won’t be afraid
I won’t be afraid, my God is here
He will make a way
He will make a way
He will make a way, my God is here


[Bridge 1]
You gave me Your eyes
You gave me Your heart
Your Spirit flows through my veins

[Bridge 2]
You gave me Your eyes
You gave me Your heart
You had a plan right from the start
I know who I am cause I know who You are
You are a good God




Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

Philippians 4:8
