Congregational Singing - Christ is Enough
Expand
Verse 1
Christ is my reward and all of my devotion
Now there's nothing in this world
That could ever satisfy
Through every trial my soul will sing
No turning back I've been set free

Chorus
Christ is enough for me
Christ is enough for me
Everything I need is in You
Everything I need

Verse 2
Christ my all in all the joy of my salvation
And this hope will never fail
Heaven is our home
Through every storm my soul will sing
Jesus is here to God be the glory

Bridge
I have decided to follow Jesus
No turning back no turning back
The cross before me the world behind me
No turning back no turning back

Congregational Singing - Sin is Powerless
Expand
Verse 1
Subdue in me the love of sin
Wash my life without within
Teach my soul to long for only You
Teach us Lord to cling to the truth

Chorus
There is no guilt no shame
no hold on us
You are victorious
There is no curse no blame
No fear in love
now sin is powerless

Verse 2
So fill my life to overflow
I claim the cross as all my hope
Teach my soul to long for only You
Teach us Lord to cling to the truth

Bridge
The Spirit that raised You up from the grave
Is in us is in us
We're covered in grace our failures erased
In Jesus in Jesus

Congregational Singing - Christ is All

Verse 1
I’ve found a treasure that can’t be taken
Found a well that won’t run dry
O worldly pleasure be now forsaken
Behold what love what life is mine

Verse 2
Could endless striving now make me righteous
Could all my works now grant me hope
Oh hallelujah the blood of Jesus
My only plea my only boast

Chorus
Christ is all Christ is all
And my song will ever be
Christ is all
All in all
And my song will ever be
Christ is all

Verse 3
And in the trial when storms are raging
Though tears may fall my soul will rise
For there’s a peace that is mine unchanging
There is a joy that never dies

Vs 4
When life is passing and strength is fading
I’ll see the One that I adore
Let this world vanish oh give me Jesus
My great desire my true reward

Sermon Outline

Christ: Our Treasure and Hope
Pastor Brad Russell

WORSHIP OF JESUS IS THE PURPOSE OF EASTER

WORSHIP IS AN ACT OF FAITH THAT REMEMBERS, REJOICES AND RESTS
o WORSHIP OF JESUS REMEMBERS THE PAST
o WORSHIP OF JESUS REJOICES IN THE PRESENT
o WORSHIP OF JESUS RESTS IN THE FUTURE
SALVATION IS THE MEANS TO WORSHIP
SALVATION IS THE THEME OF WORSHIP
Revelation 5:9-12 And they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation, [10] and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on the earth.” [11] Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, [12] saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!”
WORSHIP IS NOT POSSIBLE UNLESS ONE IS BORN AGAIN BECAUSE WORSHIP IS ROOTED IN A LIVING HOPE

WORSHIP IS NOT POSSIBLE UNLESS ONE SEES PRESENT TRIALS THROUGH THE EYES OF REFINING FAITH

WORSHIP IS NOT POSSIBLE UNLESS ONE SEES JESUS AS THEIR INHERITANCE AND TREASURE

THE RESURRECTION IS THE MEANS TO SALVATION
THE RESURRECTION IS FROM SPIRITUAL DEATH AND BRINGS SPIRITUAL LIFE

THE RESURRECTION DEMONSTRATES THE POWER THAT HOLDS OUR INHERITANCE

THE RESURRECTION GUARANTEES OUR GUARDING FOR ETERNITY
FAITH THAT TRUSTS JESUS CHRIST AS THE PAST PAYMENT FOR SIN, THE CURRENT HOPE FOR SUFFERING AND THE FUTURE PROMISE OF GLORY – A FAITH THAT SEES JESUS AS THE INHERITANCE, HOPE AND TREASURE IS THE FAITH THAT LEADS TO THE OUTCOME OF SALVATION.
John 11:25-26 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, [26] and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?”
THAT’S AN INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT QUESTION THIS EASTER – DO YOU BELIEVE THIS?
DO YOU BELIEVE THAT JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY, TRUTH AND LIFE
DO YOU BELIEVE THAT YOUR PAST SINS ONLY FIND THEIR FORGIVENESS IN A RESURRECTED JESUS?
DO YOU BELIEVE THAT YOUR PRESENT TRIALS ONLY FIND MEANING IN A RESURRECTED JESUS?
DO YOU BELIEVE THAT YOUR FUTURE INHERITANCE AND ETERNAL LIFE IS ONLY FOUND IN A RESURRECTED JESUS?

Congregational Singing - In Christ Alone

Verse 1
In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light my strength my song
This Cornerstone this solid Ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love what depths of peace
When fears are stilled when strivings cease
My Comforter my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand

Verse 2
In Christ alone who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
Till on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live

Verse 3
There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

Verse 4
No guilt in life no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life's first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand

Congregational Singing - Because He Lives
Expand
Chorus
Because He lives I can face tomorrow
Because He lives all fear is gone
Because I know He holds the future
And life is worth the living
Just because He lives

Verse 1
God sent His Son they called Him Jesus
He came to love heal and forgive
He bled and died to buy my pardon
An empty grave is there to prove
My Savior lives

Chorus
Because He lives I can face tomorrow
Because He lives all fear is gone
Because I know He holds the future
And life is worth the living
Just because He lives
