TRANSCRIPT:

Good morning, and welcome! It's such a blessing to be able to meet together like this and enjoy the presence of God, as we are humbled by the fact God enjoys the presence of us as we gather in his name.

Please stand to your feet as we open this service with prayer.


Lord God, thank you for your purposes and plans for our lives. Thank you for what you have in store for us this day. Open our hearts to hear what you would minister into our lives today. And help us to minister to you.

It's in Jesus' name we pray.

Amen.

IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

YOU ARE MY ALL IN ALL

You are my strength when I am weak
You are the treasure that I seek
You are my all in all

Seeking you as a precious jewel
Lord, to give up I'd be a fool
You are my all in all

Jesus, Lamb of God
 worthy is your name
Jesus, Lamb of God
 worthy is your name

Taking my sin, my cross, my shame
Rising again I bless your name
You are my all in all

When I fall down you pick me up
When I am dry you fill my cup
You are my all in all

Jesus, Lamb of God
 worthy is your name
Jesus, Lamb of God
 worthy is your name

WE WILL WORSHIP THE KING

We will worship the Lamb of glory
We will worship the King of Kings
We will worship the Lamb of glory
We will worship the King

And with our hands lifted high
 we will worship and sing
And with our hands lifted high
 we come before you rejoicing
With our hands lifted high to the sky
 when the world wonders why
We'll just tell them we're loving our King
 Woah woah
 We'll just tell them we're loving our king

Thank you Jesus! We love you Lord!

You may be seated.


It is my great honor to introduce today's speaker. Brother Triste, please come to the front, Lord and lag willing.

I was quite pleased when Triste agreed to share with us this morning, and I believe he has a word from the Lord for every single one of us here today.

I believe his message is very timely, very appropriate, and very relevant to each of us here today.

If you would like more of God in Second Life in addition to Sunday mornings, please get a schedule from Triste.

Brother, share with us the message God has laid on your heart.
