Church service this past Sunday was especially poignant.
If you’ve been following Grace Community on Facebook or Twitter, you’ll know that every month we raise money for missions through our Acts1Eight offering. Pastor Craig’s sermon from John 11 this past Sunday emphasized the purpose of missions – to make worshipers of Jesus. And, in fact, what was so moving about yesterday was the good, rich worship that took place. I can’t possibly describe in words the worship experience we had at our little church in Berea, KY, but what I can do is invite you to join us next week and see for your self.
During our time of praising the name of Jesus in song, Ben led us in one of my personal favorite hymns, “Come Ye Sinners.” I’ll close this post with those lyrics. Read them. Reflect on them. Most importantly, reflect on our Great God and Savior who saves us weak and wounded. Come to Jesus, come and worship.
Come ye sinners, poor and needy
Weak and wounded, sick and sore
Jesus ready stands to save you
Full of pity, love, and power
Come ye thirsty, come and welcome
God’s free bounty glorify
True belief and true repentance
Every grace that brings you nigh
I will arise and go to Jesus
He will embrace me in His arms
In the arms of my dear Savior
Oh, there are ten thousand charms
Come ye weary, heavy-laden
Lost and ruined by the fall
If you tarry until you’re better
You will never come at all
