I WONT BACK DOWN

tHIS IS A LITURGY DONE ON THE 18TH NOV 07 AND IS INSPIRED BY JOHNNY CASH

Hosea 6:6 ‘For I desire mercy, not sacrifice, and acknowledgement of God rather than burnt offerings.’
I’m after love that lasts, not more religion. I want you to know God, not go to more prayer meetings.
Were here with you, Father as your kids have done throughout the centuries. In vast Cathedrals, Churches, Chapels, homes, warehouses, beaches, cinemas, coffee shops, factories, ships, in lonely isolated places. Alone or gathered together with others, your Church is wherever your people meet together in worship, in fellowship and in prayer.
Your are where ever you are invited.
All: Be with us now, loving Father To be with you we come, Father God, knowingish of our faults; our thoughts, words and actions that have shown nothing of your love
All: Forgive us, loving Father
To be with you we come, Father God; remembering that pain of your only Son Jesus on a cruel cross so that we might know freedom from the guilt of sin, and be made right again with our Creator.
All: Thank you, loving Father‘Because he loves me,’ says the Lord, ‘I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
All: He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honour him.’
(Psalm 91)Thank you, unconditional loving Father that you are with us in the cool times and the rubbish because you understand that we are the simple humans that you created. You know our hearts, feel our pain, know our anguish and soak us with your love that we might know daily, every single day, your forgiveness and healing.
All: Thank you Father‘He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but for the sins of the whole world.’
(1 John 2:2)For your love which breathed this world into being, and daily keeps us going
All: We give you thanks
For your love which granted mankind free will and choice
All: We give you thanks
For your love which never fails as we do, but stretches to eternity
All: We give you thanks
For your love, sacrificed upon a cross for our sake
All: We give you thanks
For your love which rose triumphant from the grave and lives within us
All: We give you thanks
For your love which encircles us as we meet together in your presence
All: We give you thanks
For your love which extends to all mankind
All: We give you thanksAnd knowing that sacrifice, we wander how silly it feels to shout
out Jesus is lord on a double decker bus. Or to invite a wanderer on the street to have dinner
and offer our protected home for an evening. When that voice says speak to them we shudder
and move forward – Even after the sacrifice for eternity. Were all wimps. GOD LOVES WIMPS.
SIMON BIT on THEE WIMP (gideon)The grace of our Jesus, the love of God,
and the HOLY Spirit be with youAnd also with you.Let us hear what God says, for he will speak to
his faithful people, to those who turn to him in their hearts.God’s glory As we give love and faithfulness
righteousness and peace will rain downFaithfulness will spring up from the earth,
and righteousness will pour down from the heavens.
God will give what is goodLOVE and faith in God will make a path for his stepsGena BITMost loving and gracious God – we gather before you as your children and as your friends to be with us. We ask that your Spirit would overfill us and make us. We ask that you would help us to do that which you call us to do – and to make us a people whose perseverance, courage and faith brings you the everlasting glory that is due. Breath into us so we can stand at the gates of Hell and Heaven is surrounding our stance. Amen.

SUNNY BIT (just talking on red Sea)

crossing of theRed SeaMOSES.Israel has been freed from years of slavery. Our people are let go. The world is our oyster. No sight was seen past the situation and death was the outcome. God moves the sea into two and His love holds the oceans above our heads. Just as Moses as a baby was taken from the Nile and given the gift of life, Israel has been taken out of the water and given the gift of life. Standing at fear Moses raises his Rod. The almost laughable happens as God gives life.

Hebrews 11:29-40
Not one of these people, even though their lives of faith were exemplary, got their hands on what was promised.
God had a better plan for us: that their faith and our faith would come together to make one completed whole,
their lives of faith not complete apart from ours.

Revelation 15:3-4

Lord God Almighty. Just and true are your ways,King of the ages.
Lord God Almighty.

For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship before you,for your righteous acts have been revealed.”

Psalm 56:8-11
Awake, my soul! Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn.AWAKE MY SOUL LORDI will praise you, O Lord, among the nations; I will sing of you among the peoples.
I WILL SING FOR YOU LORDFor great is your love, reaching to the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies.AWAKE MY SOUL LORD11 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earthI WILL SING FOR YOU LORD
