Stewards of God’s Good Creation (8) – Living it out: Lifestyle

 

Please pray for Josh Milton who this morning is preaching as sole nominee in Kilsyth Anderson Parish Church, with the election after the service.

 

During our service today, we will hear about the Living Lightly 24.1 initiative led by A Rocha.  For more information about this and the latest Wild Christians scheme, visit www.arocha.org.uk.

 

The Wellbeing Group meets this Tuesday from 10.30am-12noon in the Church Hall.  This week’s theme is Memories of the Cinema.

 

The church will be Open for Prayer on Wednesday from 10am-12noon.   Please note the change of time.  Everyone is welcome to drop in.

 

This Wednesday from 7-9pm, Dr Ruth Valerio will be giving this year’s Denis Duncan Lecture on the theme: "Losing connection: does the natural world matter for the future health of humanity?"  One of the aims of the evening is to encourage churches to be hubs for healing for the whole community – it would be great if lots of us can watch as we explore how our church can be a beacon of hope in these dark days.  The lecture is free and will take place over Zoom.  Use this link to register: https://gohealth.org.uk/shop/booking/the-denis-duncan-lecture-2021/  Ruth has written several excellent books including ‘L’ if for Lifestyle.

Call to worship       Revelation 15.3-4

Ye servants of God, your Master proclaim,
And publish abroad His wonderful name:
The name all-victorious of Jesus extol;
His kingdom is glorious, and rules over all.

 

God ruleth on high, almighty to save;
And still He is nigh, His presence we have;
The great congregation His triumph shall sing;
Ascribing salvation to Jesus our King.

 

‘Salvation to God who sits on the throne!’
Let all cry aloud, and honour the Son:
The praises of Jesus the angels proclaim,
Fall down on their faces, and worship the Lamb.

 

Then let us adore, and give Him His right,
All glory and power, all wisdom and might,
All honour and blessing, with angels above,
And thanks never-ceasing, and infinite love.

 

Prayer of approach to God

 

Together Time – Videos: What can we do?

 

I want to serve the purpose of God in my generation

I want to serve the purpose of God while I am alive

I want to give my life for something that will last forever

Oh, l delight, I delight to do Your will.

 

What is on Your heart? Show me what to do

Let me know Your will and I will follow You.

What is on Your heart? Show me what to do

Let me know Your will and I will follow You.

 

I want to build with silver and gold in my generation

I want to build with silver and gold while I am alive

I want to give my life for something that will last forever

Oh, l delight, I delight to do Your will

 

I want to see the kingdom of God in my generation

I want to see the kingdom of God while I am alive

I want to give my life for something that will last forever

Oh, I delight, I delight to do Your will.

 

COP26 – A Reflection

 

Bible Reading         Matthew 7.1-12

 

Seek ye first the kingdom of God

And His righteousness;

And all these things shall be added unto you.

Allelu, alleluia!

Seek ye first…

 

Man shall not live by bread alone,

But by every word

That proceeds from the mouth of God.

Allelu, alleluia!

Man shall not live…

 

Ask, and it shall be given unto you;

Seek, and you shall find.

Knock, and the door shall be opened up to you.

Allelu, alleluia!

Ask and it shall…

 

Sermon         Living it out – Lifestyle

 

·        COP26 – so what now?

·        ‘L’ is for Lifestyle

·        Living Lightly 24.1

·        One step at a time

·        You are what you eat

·        Waste not, want not

·        Coming home to roost

·        Celebrating simplicity

Teach me to dance to the beat of Your heart,

Teach me to move in the power of Your Spirit,

Teach me to walk in the light of Your presence,

Teach me to dance to the beat of Your heart.

 

Teach me to love with Your heart of compassion,

Teach me to trust in the word of Your promise,

Teach me to hope in the day of Your coming,

Teach me to dance to the beat of Your heart.

 

You wrote the rhythm of life,

Created heaven and earth,

In You is joy without measure;

So, like a child in Your sight,

I dance to see Your delight,

For I was made for Your pleasure, pleasure.

 

Let all my movements express

A heart that loves to say 'yes',

A will that leaps to obey You;

Let all my energy blaze

To see the joy in Your face,

Let my whole being praise You, praise You.

 

Prayer of intercession

 

Response: Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.

 

I'll go in the strength of the Lord,

In paths He has marked for my feet;

I’ll follow the light of His word,

Nor shrink from the dangers I meet.

His presence my steps shall attend,

His fulness my wants shall supply;

On Him, till my journey shall end,

My unwavering faith shall rely.

 

I’ll go (I’ll go), I’ll go in the strength,

I’ll go in the strength of the Lord,

I’ll go (I’ll go), I’ll go in the strength,

I’ll go in the strength of the Lord.

 

I’ll go in the strength of the Lord

To work He appoints me to do;

In joy which His smile doth afford

My soul shall its vigour renew.

His wisdom shall guard me from harm,

His power my sufficiency prove;

I’ll trust His omnipotent arm,

And prove His unchangeable love.

 

I’ll go in the strength of the Lord

To conflicts which faith will require,

His grace as my shield and reward,

My courage and zeal shall inspire.

Since He gives the word of command,

To meet and encounter the foe,

With His sword of truth in my hand,

To suffer and triumph I’ll go.

 

Benediction
