YOUR LOVE AWAKENS ME

Verse 1
There were walls between us,
by the cross you came
And broke them down, You broke them down

There were chains around us,
by Your grace we are
No longer bound, no longer bound


Pre-Chorus

You called me out from the grave
You called me into the light
You called my name, and then my heart came alive


Chorus 1

Your love is greater, Your love is stronger
Your love awakens, awakens, awakens me

Your love is greater, Your love is stronger
Your love awakens, awakens, awakens me


Verse 2

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 1

And what a love we found,
death can’t hold us down
Shout it out,
we’re alive, cause you’re alive


Bridge 2

And what a love we found,
death can’t hold us down
Shout it out,
we’re alive, cause you’re alive


Chorus 2

Your love is greater, Your love is stronger
Your love awakens, awakens, awakens me

Your love is greater, Your love is stronger
Your love awakens, awakens, awakens me


Tag

Your love awakens me
Your love is greater, Your love is stronger
Your love awakens, awakens, awakens me

O COME TO THE ALTAR


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 hallelujah, Christ is risen

Bow down before Him,
for He is Lord of all
Sing hallelujah, Christ is risen


Verse 3

Bear your cross as you wait for the crown
Tell the world of the treasure you’ve found

SERMON NOTES with SCRIPTURE

SERMON TITLE: Concluding Remarks

TEACHER: Dan Vandewarker

PASSAGE: Romans 16

 

 

The Problem: It’s easy to take the church for granted.

 

__________

Romans 16:1-2 (NIV)

1 I commend to you our sister Phoebe, a deacon of the church in Cenchreae. 2 I ask you to receive her in the Lord in a way worthy of his people and to give her any help she may need from you, for she has been the benefactor of many people, including me.

 

Main Point: Care for the church. (vv. 1-2)

 

__________

 

Romans 16:3-16 (NIV)

3 Greet Priscilla and Aquila, my co-workers in Christ Jesus. 4 They risked their lives for me. Not only I but all the churches of the Gentiles are grateful to them.

5 Greet also the church that meets at their house.

Greet my dear friend Epenetus, who was the first convert to Christ in the province of Asia.

6 Greet Mary, who worked very hard for you.

7 Greet Andronicus and Junia, my fellow Jews who have been in prison with me. They are outstanding among the apostles, and they were in Christ before I was.

8 Greet Ampliatus, my dear friend in the Lord.

9 Greet Urbanus, our co-worker in Christ, and my dear friend Stachys.

10 Greet Apelles, whose fidelity to Christ has stood the test.

Greet those who belong to the household of Aristobulus.

11 Greet Herodion, my fellow Jew.

Greet those in the household of Narcissus who are in the Lord.

12 Greet Tryphena and Tryphosa, those women who work hard in the Lord.

Greet my dear friend Persis, another woman who has worked very hard in the Lord.

13 Greet Rufus, chosen in the Lord, and his mother, who has been a mother to me, too.

14 Greet Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermes, Patrobas, Hermas and the other brothers and sisters with them.

15 Greet Philologus, Julia, Nereus and his sister, and Olympas and all the Lord’s people who are with them.

16 Greet one another with a holy kiss.

All the churches of Christ send greetings.

 

Observation 1: Embrace the diverse church. (vv. 3-16)

 

We, the Church, need to:
1) See the church as a family that is opening and welcome toward all people.
2) Anticipate that God is going to continue to work through those people in building His church.

 

__________

 

Romans 16:17-20 (NIV)

17 I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them. 18 For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive people. 19 Everyone has heard about your obedience, so I rejoice because of you; but I want you to be wise about what is good, and innocent about what is evil.

20 The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet.

The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.

 

Observation 2: Stay away from divisiveness. (vv. 17-20)

 

__________

 

Romans 16:21-27 (NIV)

21 Timothy, my co-worker, sends his greetings to you, as do Lucius, Jason and Sosipater, my fellow Jews.

22 I, Tertius, who wrote down this letter, greet you in the Lord.

23 Gaius, whose hospitality I and the whole church here enjoy, sends you his greetings.

Erastus, who is the city’s director of public works, and our brother Quartus send you their greetings. [24]

25 Now to him who is able to establish you in accordance with my gospel, the message I proclaim about Jesus Christ, in keeping with the revelation of the mystery hidden for long ages past, 26 but now revealed and made known through the prophetic writings by the command of the eternal God, so that all the Gentiles might come to the obedience that comes from faith— 27 to the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ! Amen.

 

The Challenge: Bring glory to God. (vv. 21-27)

RAISE A HALLELUJAH

Verse 1
I raise a hallelujah,
in the presence of my enemies

I raise a hallelujah,
louder than the unbelief

I raise a hallelujah,
my weapon is a melody

I raise a hallelujah,
Heaven comes to fight for me

 

Chorus 1
I’m gonna sing,
in the middle of the storm

Louder and louder,
you’re gonna hear my praises roar

Up from the ashes, hope will arise

Death is defeated, the King is alive

 

Verse 2
I raise a hallelujah,
with ev’rything inside of me

I raise a hallelujah,
I will watch the darkness flee

I raise a hallelujah,
in the middle of the mystery

I raise a hallelujah,
fear you lost your hold on me

 

Bridge 1
Sing a little louder (sing a little louder)

Sing a little louder (sing a little louder)

Sing a little louder (sing a little louder)

Sing a little louder (sing a little louder)

 

Bridge 2
Sing a little louder,
(in the presence of my enemies)

Sing a little louder,
(louder than the unbelief)

Sing a little louder,
(my weapon is a melody)

Sing a little louder,
(heaven comes to fight for me)

Sing a little louder

 

Chorus 2
I’m gonna sing,
in the middle of the storm

Louder and louder,
you’re gonna hear my praises roar

Up from the ashes,
hope will arise

Death is defeated,
the King is alive

 

Chorus 3
I raise a hallelujah,
I raise a hallelujah

I raise a hallelujah,
I raise a hallelujah
