*Hymn of Praise No. 338 How Firm a Foundation

How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,

Is laid for your faith in His excellent Word!

What more can He say than to you He hath said,

To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled?

 

“Fear not, I am with thee; O be not dismayed,

For I am thy God, and will still give thee aid;

I’ll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,

Upheld by My righteous, omnipotent hand.

 

“When thro’ fiery trials thy path way shall lie,

My grace, all sufficient, shall be thy supply;

The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design

Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine.

 

“The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose

I will not, I will not desert to his foes;

That soul, tho’ all hell should endeavor to shake,

I’ll never, no, never, no, never forsake!”

New Testament Reading James 1:2-4, Hebrews 6:18-19

 

Leader:

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds,

for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.

Congregation:

And let steadfastness have its full effect,

that you may be perfect and complete,

lacking in nothing.

Leader:

We who have fled for refuge

might have strong encouragement

to hold fast to the hope set before us.

Congregation:

We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul,

a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain,

where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf,

having become a high priest forever.

After the order of Melchizedek.

 

Song of Reflection Christ the Sure and Steady Anchor

Christ, the sure and steady anchor, in the fury of the storm;
When the winds of doubt blow through me, and my sails have all been torn.
In the suff'ring, in the sorrow, when my sinking hopes are few;
I will hold fast to the anchor. It shall never be removed.

Christ, the sure and steady anchor, while the tempest rages on;
When temptation claims the battle, and it seems the night has won,
Deeper still then goes the anchor, though I justly stand accused;
I will hold fast to the anchor. It shall never be removed.

Christ, the sure and steady anchor, through the floods of unbelief;
Hopeless somehow, O my soul, now lift your eyes to Calvary.
This my ballest of assurance, see His love forever proved.
All my hope is in the anchor, It shall never be removed.

Christ, the sure and steady anchor, as we face the wave of death;
When these trials give way to glory as we draw our final breath.
We will cross that great horizon, clouds behind and life secure;
And the calm will be the better for the storms that we endure.

Christ, the shore of our salvation, ever faithful, ever true.
We will hold fast to the anchor. It shall never be removed.

Scripture Reading Isaiah 13-29

Sermon Judgment and Hope Found in the Holy One of Israel Heath Rickmond, Pastor

  1. God is Sovereign Judge over the Nations
  2. God’s Judgment is Comfort for His People
  3. God’s Judgment Ends in Hope, for His People Will Accept His Word

 

*Hymn of Commitment No. 447 Trust and Obey

When we walk with the Lord In the light of His Word

What a glory He sheds on our way!

Let us do His good will; He abides with us still,

And with all who will trust and obey.

Trust and obey, for there’s no other way

To be happy in Jesus, But to trust and obey.

 

Not a burden we bear, Not a sorrow we share,

But our toil He doth richly repay;

Not a grief or a loss, Not a frown or a cross,

But is blest if we trust and obey.

Trust and obey, for there’s no other way

To be happy in Jesus, But to trust and obey.

 

But we never can prove The delights of His love

Until all on the altar we lay;

For the favor He shows And the joy He bestows

Are for them who will trust and obey.

Trust and obey, for there’s no other way

To be happy in Jesus, But to trust and obey.

 

Then in fellowship sweet We will sit at His feet

Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;

What He says we will do, Where He sends we will go;

Never fear, only trust and obey.

Trust and obey, for there’s no other way

To be happy in Jesus, But to trust and obey.
