Sharing the love of Jesus

Sunday service – 31st May

31 May

    Sunday service – 31st May

    Another Lord’s Day, to stop and focus on our great God.

    Pray God will help us avoid distractions and focus our minds on Him.

    Fun spot video: this is the first of three YouTube clips on Joseph. In them Joseph’s father is called Israel because God changed his name, but he is actually the same person as Jacob in last week’s story. By the way, have you noticed that the fun spots in our Zoom services are going through some of the main events in the Bible, starting at creation? It’s good to have a timeline in your head of what happened when because it helps us to understand God’s plan.

    Song –How Deep the Father’s Love for Us

    Talk РEphesians 4:25 Р5:2. A worthy manner: love
    Tim Sheppard from St Helen’s, Bishopsgate

    Two songs now…
    First, a new one to listen to, that fits in very well with the message, It was Love

    And also one to sing with –¬†O for a closer walk with God


    O for a closer walk with God
    A calm and heavenly frame
    A light to shine upon the road
    Leading to the Lamb

    Where is that blessedness I knew
    When first I saw the Lord
    Where is that soul refreshing view
    Of Jesus and His Word

    O fire of God come burn in me
    Renew a holy passion
    ’til Christ my deepest longing be
    My never-failing fountain
    My never-failing fountain

    What peaceful hours I once enjoyed
    How sweet their memory still
    But they have left an aching void
    The world can never fill

    The dearest idol I have known
    Whate’er that idol be
    Help me to tear it from the throne
    And worship only thee

    So shall my walk be close with God
    Calm and serene my frame
    So purer light shall mark the road
    That leads me to the lamb
