There were walls between us

And there were chains around us
By Your grace we are no longer bound
No longer bound

Feel the darkness shaking
All the dead are coming back to life
I'm back to life
Hear the song awaken
All creation singing we're alive
'Cause You're alive

Bridge
And what a love we've found
Death can't hold us down
We shout it out
We're alive 'cause You're alive

Your love awakens me

Wonderful Grace Of Jesus
Expand
Verse 1
Wonderful grace of Jesus greater than all my sin
How shall my tongue describe it
Where shall its praise begin
Taking away my burden setting my spirit free
For the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me

Chorus
Wonderful the matchless grace of Jesus
Deeper than the mighty rolling sea
Higher than the mountain sparkling like a fountain
All-sufficient grace for even me
Broader than the scope of my transgressions
Greater far than all my sin and shame
O magnify the precious name of Jesus
Praise His name

Verse 2
Wonderful grace of Jesus reaching to all the lost
By it I have been pardoned saved to the uttermost
Chains have been torn asunder giving me liberty
For the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me

Verse 3
Wonderful grace of Jesus reaching the most defiled
By its transforming power
Making Him God's dear child
Purchasing peace and heaven for all eternity
For the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me

Where Do We Grow from Here: Grow Deeper
2 Peter 3:18, 1:2-10
January 8, 2023

An organization’s vision is only as clear as the vision of the organization’s members.

GROW DEEPER
DEEPER GROWTH BEGINS WITH GRACE
But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
2 Peter 3:18

GROW DEEPER
DEEPER GROWTH PURSUES KNOWLEDGE
Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
2 Peter 1:2

GROW DEEPER
DEEPER GROWTH PURSUES KNOWLEDGE
His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.
2 Peter 1:3

GROW DEEPER
DEEPER GROWTH PURSUES KNOWLEDGE
Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.
2 Peter 1:4

GROW DEEPER
DEEPER GROWTH PURSUES KNOWLEDGE
[Paul’s] letters contain some things that are hard to understand.
2 Peter 3:16

GROW DEEPER
DEEPER GROWTH PURSUES KNOWLEDGE
“The Scriptures are shallow enough for a babe to come and drink without fear of drowning and deep enough for theologians to swim in without ever reaching the bottom.”
-Saint Jerome

GROW DEEPER
DEEPER GROWTH REQUIRES CHANGE
For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love.
2 Peter 1:5-7

GROW DEEPER
DEEPER GROWTH REQUIRES CHANGE
faith → goodness → knowledge → self-control → perseverance → godliness → mutual affection → love

GROW DEEPER
DEEPER GROWTH REQUIRES CHANGE
The more you grow like this, the more productive and useful you will be in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Peter 1:8 (NLT)

GROW DEEPER
DEEPER GROWTH REQUIRES CHANGE
But those who fail to develop in this way are shortsighted or blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their old sins.
2 Peter 1:9 (NLT)

GROW DEEPER
DEEPER GROWTH REQUIRES CHANGE
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.
James 1:22-25

GROW DEEPER
DEEPER GROWTH REQUIRES CHANGE
So, friends, confirm God’s invitation to you, his choice of you. Don’t put it off; do it now. Do this, and you’ll have your life on a firm footing, the streets paved and the way wide open into the eternal kingdom of our Master and Savior, Jesus Christ.
2 Peter 1:10-11 (MESSAGE)

GROW DEEPER
“Don’t put it off; do it now.”
O Come To The Altar
Expand
Verse 1
Are you hurting and broken within
Overwhelmed by the weight of your sin
Jesus is calling
Have you come to the end of yourself
Do you thirst for a drink from the well
Jesus is calling

Chorus
O come to the altar
The Father's arms are open wide
Forgiveness was bought with
The precious blood of Jesus Christ

Verse 2
Leave behind your regrets and mistakes
Come today there's no reason to wait
Jesus is calling
Bring your sorrows and trade them for joy
From the ashes a new life is born
Jesus is calling

Bridge
Oh what a Savior
Isn't he wonderful
Sing alleluia Christ is risen
Bow down before him
For he is Lord of all
Sing alleluia Christ is risen

Verse 3
Bear your cross as you wait for the crown
Tell the world of the treasure you've found
