Monday Morning Recap for Sunday January 17, 2KX

The power went out –

The 9:00 service didn’t get to see the 80, or the video clip that we had put together to lead into the sermon re: Haiti . . .

Carlee did a bang-up job filling the room with vocals on the offering song, without mic, and in a room that’s been designed to acoustically support a sound system, and not unamplified vocals and Bob screamed his way through his 9:00 sermon. The power came back on at 10:20 in time for us to get the technical systems back up for the 10:30 service.

It was a neat morning though –

We opened with a new song called What a Savior.

After our call to worship, we sang Forever, Indescribable, Be Thou My Vision, Center, and How Deep the Father’s Love for Us (with the intro to Levon by EJ).

I mentioned how I was struck by the 2nd half of the 3rd verse in that song – “why should I gain from His reward, i cannot give an answer, but this I know with all my heart, His wounds have paid my ransom.

What if we really believed that – after singing Be Thou My Vision, and Center – with the line “Oh Christ – be the center of our lives, be the place we fix our eyes” – what if we truly did understand, and believe with all our heart that He’s paid our ransom –

How many of us get wrapped up in foolishness, even on a Sunday morning – coming to church, arguing with kids, fighting with spouse, wondering what the sermon is about, or if we’ll sing our favorite song – we get lost in the foolishness and forget “with all our hearts” that His wounds have paid our ransom – that is, if we are in Christ, we don’t burn in hell for eternity . . . My prayer becomes that I would, if only for a moment, forget the foolishness, and know with all my heart . . . and that THAT truth would be the CENTER of my life.

Anyway –

Our offering song was By Our Love by Christy Nockels . . . Great tune. Carlee sang it. The early service was accompanied by acoustic guitar, the 2nd – by piano.

  1. I think it was pretty interesting the worship experience that occurred during the service with the power outage. Perhaps more acoustic services could be done (with the power on)? SES

  2. Jason, I love that Song ” How Deep the Father's Love for Us” and I also love the lyrics you quoted! Very worshipful song!
