You have been born anew... A Worshippy Thingy for Sunday, April 26, 2020

Note: While Orchards United Methodist Church has suspended live, in-person worship due to the coronavirus, we offer to you this worship experience. We pray that the powerful love of God may be made known to you today.

Greeting

Opening Singing

<Verse 1> Lord I come, I confess. Bowing here, I find my rest. And without You, I fall apart. You're the one who guides my heart.

<Chorus> Lord, I need you, Oh, I need you. Every hour, I need you. My one defense, my righteousness; Oh, God how I need you.

<Verse 2> Where sin runs deep, Your grace is more. Wher grace is found is where you are. And where you are, Lord I am free. Holiness is Christ in me. Where you are, Lord I am free, Holiness is Christ in me. [to Chorus]

<Bridge> So teach my song to rise to You when temptation comes my way. And when I cannot stand, I'll fall on you. Jesus, you're my hope and stay. [to Chorus]

Scripture

1 Peter 1:17-23
If you invoke as Father the one who judges all people impartially according to their deeds, live in reverent fear during the time of your exile. You know that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your ancestors, not with perishable things like silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without defect or blemish. He was destined before the foundation of the world, but was revealed at the end of the ages for your sake. Through him you have come to trust in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are set on God. Now that you have purified your souls by your obedience to the truth so that you have genuine mutual love, love one another deeply from the heart. You have been born anew, not of perishable but of imperishable seed, through the living and enduring word of God.

Sermon

Closing Singing

<Verse 1> There is a name I love to hear, I love to sing its worth; it sounds like music in my ear, the sweetest name on earth.

<Refrain> O how I love Jesus. O how I love Jesus. O how I love Jesus. Because he first loved me.

<Verse 2> It tells me of a Savior's love, who died to set me free; it tells me of his precious blood, the sinner's perfect plea. [to Refrain]

<Verse 3> It tells of one whose loving heart can feel my deepest woe; who in each sorrow bears a part that none can bear below. [to Refrain]
