Screen Door (On a Submarine) written by Rich Mullins.


Good morning sojourn! As we just sang, “Faith comes from God and every word that he breathes…  He lets you take it to your heart …so you can give it hands and feet…

It’s gotta be active if it’s gonna be alive… You gotta put it into practice” Let’s do that right now as we “practice” what we believe; that God is Holy, We as sinners, Jesus SAVES, and then Jesus SENDS us to carry this Good News into a world in desperate need of saving. Hear the word of the Lord: 

1 The heavens proclaim the glory of God.
The skies display his craftsmanship.
2 Day after day they continue to speak;
night after night they make him known.
3 They speak without a sound or word;
their voice is never heard.
4 Yet their message has gone throughout the earth,
and their words to all the world.

7 The instructions of the Lord are perfect,
reviving the soul.
The decrees of the Lord are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.
8 The commandments of the Lord are right,
bringing joy to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are clear,
giving insight for living.                                                                             -Psalm 19:1-4, 7-8 NLT

Let’s join with the heavens, the angels, and believers throughout the world in proclaiming God’s glory in song!

God of Wonders written by Marc Byrd and Steve Hindalong.


Let’s slow down for a moment and pray together with the Psalmist, taking time to be intentional about how this excerpt of Psalm 19 stirs our hearts and minds, and when we get to the underlined portions together.

The laws of the Lord are true;
each one is fair.
10 They are more desirable than gold,
even the finest gold.
They are sweeter than honey,
even honey dripping from the comb.
11 They are a warning to your servant,
a great reward for those who obey them.

12 How can I know all the sins lurking in my heart?
Cleanse me from these hidden faults.
13 Keep your servant from deliberate sins!
Don’t let them control me.
Then I will be free of guilt
and innocent of great sin.

14 May the words of my mouth
and the meditation of my heart
be pleasing to you,
O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.                                                          -Psalm 19:10b-14 NLT

My Rock and My Redeemer written by Rebecca Dennison.


Listen to the promise of God:

Those who love Me, I will deliver.
I will protect those who know My name.
When they call to Me, I will answer them;
I will be with them in trouble.
I will rescue them and honor them,
and show them my saving power.                                                               -Psalm 91:14-15 NRSV

Lord, we trust in Your unfailing love!
We rejoice, because You have rescued us!

Sing praise to God,
because He has been so good to us!
                                                            -Psalm 13:5-6 NRSV

Giving – extemporaneous

We Are Listening written by Jeremy Quillo.


Let’s take a moment to welcome one another as a people who have been delivered… God is WITH us and this changes relationship dynamics so dramatically. I hope that you feel God’s goodness in that as you greet each other.

Revive Us Again written by William Mackay.


58 Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. [Go now… peace be with you!] -1 Cor. 15:58 NIV
