SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (HYMNS - 2)

main image

In many ways... the old time HYMNS are the Oral History of our Faith! Just like the Psalms in Scripture - they have been passed from generation to generation and sung in Cathedrals and Chapels... (And for many of us...) around a Family Piano! They are rich with Truth/Promise from Scripture - so we’ve started taking a few weeks here at COC to talk about a few of those famous songs in a series we're calling "HYMNS" -- We're diving into a few of those Classic Hymns to explore their meaning filled with HOPE and hopefully illuminating the HOPE they still have for us today! Praying you’ll consider joining us the remaining few weeks…

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (2) WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS!

  

What a Friend we have in Jesus - all our sins and griefs to bear… and what a privilege to carry… EVERYTHING TO GOD IN PRAYER! (Joseph Scriven)

 

Philippians 4:6… Do not be anxious about ANYTHING… but in EVERY situation… by PRAYER and petition with thanksgiving… present your requests to God!

 

If your PROBLEM is big enough to WORRY about - it's big enough to PRAY about!

 

1 Peter 5:7… Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you! (What A Friend We Have In Jesus!)

 

"Prayer is simply a Two-Way Conversation between You and God! It's not just you Speaking… but it's you Listening to God too!” (Billy Graham)

 

PRAYER might not always CHANGE your CIRCUMSTANCES - but it will always CHANGE the way you VIEW your CIRCUMSTANCES!

 

 

See You Sunday Celebrators… (9a / 10:45a)

Sunday Snapshot… (1) AMAZING GRACE

 

Ephesians 2… WE WERE / BUT GOD / BY GRACE (Amazing Grace!)

 

WE ARE ALL SINNERS - no way around it! (And...) Sometimes GUILT is the starting point for GRACE!

 

If we Don't/Won’t/Can’t ever see ourselves as a SINNER… we'll never be able to see our NEEDfor a SAVIOR!

 

Amazing Grace! How sweet the sound - that saved a wretch like me! I once was lost - but now am found; was blind - but now I see! (John Newton) -- You Were / But God / By Grace

 

’Twas Grace that taught my heart to fear - and Grace my fears relieved; How precious did that Grace appear - the hour I first believed. (John Newton) -- You Were / But God / By Grace

 

When we’ve been there ten thousand years - bright shining as the sun, we’ve no less days to sing God’s praise - than when we’d first begun! (John Newton) -- You Were / But God / By Grace
