Please turn around and click one of the offering plates by the doors, and give as the Lord leads.



He is the King of Kings
    He is the Lord of Lords
His name is Jesus, Jesus,
    Jesus, Jesus
O, He is the King!

His name is Jesus, Jesus
    sad hearts we've no more
He can heal the broken hearted
    open wide the prison door
And He's able to deliver evermore!


I've got a river of life flowing out of me!
Makes the lame to walk, and the blind to see.
Opens prison doors, sets the captives free!
I've got a river of life flowing out of me!

Spring up, O well, within my soul!
Spring up, O well, and make me whole!
Spring up, O well, and give to me
That life abundantly.


I love you, Lord
And I lift my voice
To worship You
Oh, my soul rejoice!
Take joy my King
In what You hear
Let it be a sweet, sweet sound in Your ear

*** listen to the audio for the message introduction ***

Today we're going to listen to a short message taken from This was spoken to a group of people who had a lot of problems with addictions. Maybe you have serious addictions, maybe not; but this message is one that applies to every single one of us.

Let's open our ears and our hearts to hear the Word of God, and I pray that we are all changed by what we hear today.

*** Listen to the audio to hear "Dead Bones Walking" from ***

Amen. There's not much I could add to that, and not much more needs to be said. Maybe today you feel as though you are dead and dry, perhaps because of something with which you've been struggling, or maybe even because you haven't really surrendered your life to Jesus.

Well, the Holy Spirit is here today, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty and there is life. So I invite you to surrender your life to Jesus, and just as you have received his Word which covers your dry bones, ask his Holy Spirit to breathe upon you, bringing you to life and setting you free.

I'd like anyone here today who is part of the ministry team to come stand at the front.

And this altar is open for a time of prayer and ministry. If you'd like someone to pray or talk with you, feel free to instant message me or someone else on the ministry team.

After this time at the altar, stick around for a time of fellowship in the room to your left. Whenever you need to go, you're dismissed.

Let's get out of our seats and come gather at the front, as we completely surrender ourselves to the Master's hands, and as we seek after him to give us life and to set us free.
