Congregational Singing - I Stand Amazed
Expand
Verse 1
I stand amazed in the presence
Of Jesus the Nazarene
And wonder how He could love me
A sinner condemned unclean

Chorus
How marvelous how wonderful
And my song shall ever be
How marvelous how wonderful
Is my Saviour's love for me

Verse 2
For me it was in the garden
He prayed not My will but Thine
He had no tears for His own griefs
But sweat drops of blood for mine

Verse 3
He took my sins and my sorrows
He made them His very own
He bore the burden to Calvary
And suffered and died alone

Verse 4
When with the ransomed in glory
His face I at last shall see
'Twill be my joy through the ages
To sing of His love for me

Plans are being prayerfully made to expand the facilities of OPBC in the future. Your generosity makes this possible. GIVE ONLINE TODAY!

Ebbie Davis California: Let's pray today for one of our missionaries in California. Ebbie Davis serves in San Diego. More than three million people live in and around the city and fewer than 10 percent of them are evangelical Christians. Ebbie is working with eight students in a program of our North American Mission Board called NextGen. They're helping plant new churches urgently needed in the area. We support Ebbie and the mission board through the Cooperative Program.

Giving - Supporting the Work of the Gospel as an Act of Worship

Your giving today supports the Gospel work of OPBC to Proclaim the Excellencies of Jesus in Powhatan and to the ends of the earth. Your giving supports THOUSANDS of missionaries around the globe, like the CHAMBERS in EUROPE and the PRINCIVILS in SHERBROOKE, QUEBEC.

Congregational Singing - Your Grace Is Enough
Expand
Verse 1
Great is Your faithfulness O God
You wrestle with the sinner's restless heart
You lead us by still waters into mercy
And nothing can keep us apart

Pre-Chorus
(So) remember Your people
Remember Your children
Remember Your promise O God

Chorus 1
Your grace is enough
Your grace is enough
Your grace is enough for me

Verse 2
Great is Your love and justice God of Jacob
You use the weak to lead the strong
You lead us in the song of Your salvation
And all Your people sing along

Chorus 2
Yeah Your grace is enough
Heaven reaches out to us
Your grace is enough for me
God I sing Your grace is enough
I'm covered in Your love
Your grace is enough for me for me

Congregational Singing - Run to Him
Expand
Verse 1
I was dead, I'm alive
I was lost but I've been found
I was deaf, I can hear
I was blind, now I see
Without hope, full of fear
Misery, dark despair
Full of doubts, disbelief
Jesus you set me free!

Chorus
The Name of the Lord
Is a Strong Tower
Run to It and be saved
The Name of the Lord
Is our Strong Tower
The righteous run here and are safe
Run to Him

Verse 2
Walk by faith, not by sight
For our weapons are divine
Step by step, full of life
Our thoughts captive to Christ
God is bigger, He is able
God is stronger than my will
He is faithful when I'm faithless
I will follow, I believe

Bridge
By Your Spirit not our flesh we will stand (x4)
By Your Spirit not my flesh I will stand

Daniel Chafin Bryant





Sermon Outline

The Generosity Project: The Heart of the Problem
Luke 12:13-31
Pastor Brad Russell

JESUS CAME TO GIVE US LIFE AND LIFE MORE ABUNDANT

Our nature, by the corruption of the first sin, so deeply curved in on itself that it not only bends the best gifts of God towards itself and enjoys them (as is plain in the works-righteous and hypocrites), or rather even uses God himself in order to attain these gifts, but it also fails to realize that it so wickedly, curvedly, and viciously seeks all things, even God, for its own sake. – MARTIN LUTHER

1. THE HEART CURVED INWARD MISSES THE KINGDOM OF GOD BY FOCUSING ON THE STUFF OF THIS WORLD

2. THE HEART CURVED INWARD MISSES THE KINGDOM BY SHORT-CIRCUITING GOD’S ECONOMY

3. THE HEART CURVED INWARD IS ANXIOUS

4. THE HEART CURVED INWARD IS FAITHLESS

5. THE HEART CURVED INWARD LOOKS LIKE THE WORLD THAT IS PASSING AWAY

6. THE HEART CURVED INWARD WILL ULTIMATELY GET WHAT IT WANTS

7. THE HEART CHANGED BY GOD GETS THE KINGDOM







Congregational Singing - Jesus Thank You
Expand
Verse 1
The myst’ry of the cross I cannot comprehend
The agonies of Calvary
You the perfect Holy One crushed Your Son
Who drank the bitter cup reserved for me

Chorus
Your blood has washed away my sin
Jesus thank You
The Father's wrath completely satisfied
Jesus thank You
Once Your enemy now seated at Your table
Jesus thank You

Verse 2
By Your perfect sacrifice I've been brought near
Your enemy You've made Your friend
Pouring out the riches of Your glorious grace
Your mercy and Your kindness know no end

Bridge
Lover of my soul I want to live for You
