PREPARATION FOR WORSHIP

Wake yourself, wake yourself,
    stand up, O Jerusalem,
you who have drunk from the hand of the Lord
    the cup of his wrath,
who have drunk to the dregs
    the bowl, the cup of staggering.
Isaiah 51:17

So Jesus said to Peter, “Put your sword into its sheath; shall I not drink the cup that the Father has given me?”
John 18:11

Thus the Lord, the God of Israel, said to me: “Take from my hand this cup of the wine of wrath, and make all the nations to whom I send you drink it. They shall drink and stagger and be crazed because of the sword that I am sending among them.”
Jeremiah 25:15-16

“Though I used to complain about the indecency of the idea of God’s wrath, I came to think that i would have tor rebel against a God who wasn’t wrathful at the sight of the world’s evil. God isn’t wrathful in spite of being love. God is wrathful because God is love.”
– Miroslav Volf

 

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP

I will lift up the cup of salvation
    and call on the name of the Lord…

I will offer to you the sacrifice of thanksgiving
    and call on the name of the Lord. …

in the courts of the house of the Lord,
    in your midst, O Jerusalem.
Praise the Lord!

 

Psalm 116:13,17,19

 

SONG

 

Hallelujah

[Verse]
My heart is overjoyed
Kingdom has finally come
I see the face of my Maker, the Father, the Son
No, I won’t walk I will run

[Chorus]
And we’ll say
You are mighty, You are Lord
No one greater than You Yahweh
All the angels, all the world singing
Halle, Hallelujah
Halle, Hallelujah
Halle, Hallelujah
And we will all bow down and worship singing
Halle, Hallelujah

[Verse]
I hear the trumpets sound
Your wonders all around
No one can question Your power, Your sovereign, Your crown
All that’s lost now is found

[Chorus]

[Verse]
Just like a thief in the night
The Son of Man shall rise
And in the blink of the eye You will crack the sky
And the dark will be light

We’ll see our majesty
That never loses sleep
Yeah we will dance, we will shout for our Savior, our King
Oh, we all will be free

[Chorus]

 

SONG

 

You’ll Come

[Verse]
I have decided, I have resolved
To wait upon You Lord
My rock and Redeemer, shield and reward
I’ll wait upon You Lord

As surely as the sun will rise
You’ll come to us
Certain as the dawn appears

[Chorus]
You’ll come
Let Your glory fall as You respond to us
Spirit rain
Flood into our thirsty hearts again
You’ll come
You’ll come

[Verse]
We are not shaken, we are not moved
We wait upon You Lord
Mighty deliverer, triumph and truth
We wait upon You Lord

As surely as the sun will rise
You’ll come to us
Certain as Your word endures

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
Chains be broken
Lives be healed
Eyes be opened
Christ is revealed

[Chorus]

 

SONG

Hiding Place

[Verse]
I have found myself a hiding place
I have found myself a secret space
In the shelter of Almighty’s love
In the safety of the Savior’s arms

[Chorus]
I will run to the hiding place
I will run to the hiding place
Draw me ever closer to look upon Your face
I will run to the hiding place

[Verse]
I have found myself a hiding place
I have found myself a secret space
In the refuge of the Father’s care
In the cleansing blood of Jesus there

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
Though my fear may overwhelm me
And troubles, they surround
Though the wind rise up to take me
My hiding place is already found

[Verse]
I found myself a hiding place
I found myself a secret space
In the shelter of Almighty’s love
In the safety of the Savior’s arms

[Chorus]

SERMON
“Jesus Overwhelmed”
Mark 14:32-42

32 And they went to a place called Gethsemane. And he said to his disciples, “Sit here while I pray.” 33 And he took with him Peter and James and John, and began to be greatly distressed and troubled. 34 And he said to them, “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death. Remain here and watch.” 35 And going a little farther, he fell on the ground and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him. 36 And he said, “Abba, Father, all things are possible for you. Remove this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will.” 37 And he came and found them sleeping, and he said to Peter, “Simon, are you asleep? Could you not watch one hour? 38 Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” 39 And again he went away and prayed, saying the same words. 40 And again he came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were very heavy, and they did not know what to answer him. 41 And he came the third time and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and taking your rest? It is enough; the hour has come. The Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 42 Rise, let us be going; see, my betrayer is at hand.”

 

SONG

 

Cornerstone

[Verse]
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But wholly trust in Jesus name

[Chorus]
Christ alone, Cornerstone
Weak made strong in the Savior’s love
Through the storm, He is Lord
Lord of all

[Verse]
When darkness seems to hide His face
I rest on His unchanging grace
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil
My anchor holds within the veil

[Chorus]

[Verse]
When He shall come with trumpet sound
Oh may I then in Him be found
Dressed in His righteousness alone
Faultless stand before the throne

[Chorus]

On Christ the solid rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
All other ground is sinking sand

 

 

BENEDICTION

Therefore hear this, you who are afflicted,
    who are drunk, but not with wine:
Thus says your Lord, the Lord,
    your God who pleads the cause of his people:
“Behold, I have taken from your hand the cup of staggering;
the bowl of my wrath you shall drink no more”

Isaiah 51:21-22
