As we come to worship this morning read out loud the words of Isaiah 40:28-31:

Do you not know?

Have you not heard?

The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.

Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.

They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Let praise God in song:

It's 2021, we have a new verse for the year and a new song and actions to learn. Enjoy:

We sing again of the confidence we have in Christ Jesus:

Now Joy is going to lead us in our prayers of intercession and Viv will read the bible to us:

Romans 15:5-13

May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God. For I tell you that Christ has become a servant of the Jews on behalf of God’s truth, so that the promises made to the patriarchs might be confirmed and, moreover, that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy. As it is written:

‘Therefore I will praise you among the Gentiles; I will sing the praises of your name.’

Again, it says,

‘Rejoice, you Gentiles, with his people.

And again,

‘Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles; let all the peoples extol him.’

And again, Isaiah says,

‘The Root of Jesse will spring up, one who will arise to rule over the nations; in him the Gentiles will hope.’

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Or message today is focused on our verse for the year:

Our final song today is a declaration that the hope we have is founded on Jesus:

And so:

May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
