Chain Breaker
Verse 1

If you've been walking the same old road

For miles and miles

If you've been hearing the same old voice

Tell the same old lies

If you're trying to fill the same old holes inside

There's a better life
There's a better life
Chorus

If you've got pain He's a pain taker
If you feel lost He's a way maker
If you need freedom or saving
He's a prison shaking Savior
If you got chains He's a chain breaker

Verse 2

We've all searched for the light of day
In the dead of night
We've all found ourselves worn out
From the same old fight

We've all run to things we know just ain't right

When there's a better life
There's a better life
Bridge
If you believe it
If you receive it
If you can feel it
Somebody testify
Ending

Oh if you need freedom or saving
He's a prison shaking Savior
If you got chains well He's a chain breaker

Christ Is Enough

Verse 1

Christ is my reward and all of my devotion
Now there's nothing in this world
That could ever satisfy
Through every trial my soul will sing
No turning back I've been set free

Chorus
Christ is enough for me
Christ is enough for me
Everything I need is in You
Everything I need
Verse 2

Christ my all in all the joy of my salvation
And this hope will never fail
Heaven is our home
Through every storm my soul will sing
Jesus is here to God be the glory

Bridge

I have decided to follow Jesus
No turning back no turning back

Bridge

The cross before me the world behind me
No turning back no turning back


CCLI Song # 6514035

King Of My Heart
Verse 1

Let the King of my heart
Be the mountain where I run
The fountain I drink from
Oh He is my song
Let the King of my heart
Be the shadow where I hide
The ransom for my life
Oh He is my song
Chorus
You are good good oh
You are good good oh
You are good good oh
You are good good oh
Verse 2
Let the King of my heart
Be the wind inside my sails
The anchor in the waves
Oh He is my song
Let the King of my heart
Be the fire inside my veins
The echo of my days
Oh He is my song
Bridge
You're never gonna let
Never gonna let me down
You're never gonna let
Never gonna let me down
You're never gonna let
Never gonna let me down
You're never gonna let
Never gonna let me down
Ending

When the night is holding on to me
God is holding on
When the night is holding on to me
God is holding on

“Let us Come Boldly”

Senior Pastor Rev. Jeff McCarthy

16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace,

that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Hebrews 4: 16 NKJV

Intro: During the onset of the pandemic last year in March, researchers who study Google word searches reported a 50% increase in searches for “prayer.” This was a worldwide phenomenon in 95 countries.

 

It is not uncommon for people to turn to religion in times of stress and uncertainty. Behavioral scientists describe this with the term “religious coping.” While some people do turn to religion and religious practices such as prayer or meditation in order to cope, true Christianity is different.

 

True believers in Christ turn to a Person, Jesus, not just a practice, to get the help they need. The writer of Hebrews makes that point clear in chapter 4:16 as follows: “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find help in time of need.” We do not just pray as a coping mechanism, we pray in order to communicate directly with the Lord Who is also our Priest.

 

As we reopen our society, it is important for the church to know that millions of people were searching the word prayer during the pandemic. That means people were looking for answers. That means people were open to spiritual things. That means people wanted to know how or what to pray, or even who to pray to. Many of these people prayed perhaps for the first time.

 

As we reengage with people, it would be a fair assumption to make that sometime during this pandemic they prayed or thought about praying. As Christians, prayer is something we can simply take for granted. The above passage helps us to get the right perspective on prayer.

 

This passage shows us how to approach God in prayer. Many people come to God in fear, timidity, or uncertainty. As believers, we are to come boldly and with confidence. It also shows us that we obtain mercy and find grace in Him. And finally, it teaches that God is always ready to help us in our time of need.

 

There are many stories of how God answered our prayers during the pandemic. He wants us to come to Him in our need, but He also wants us to come to Him when we have no needs. He wants to keep the communication lines open even after the disaster is over.

 

Let us be a church that approaches God’s throne of Grace boldly as we respond to God’s mercy and grace and give witness to how He helps us in our times of need.

 

Today’s message is entitled “Let Us Come Boldly”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We Can Come Boldly and Confidently because He is Our High Priest (16)

 

Vs. 16 NKJV, NIV

 

We can be bold because we have access to Him

 

Ephesians 3:12 NKJV, NLT, and NIV

 

We can be open and honest with Him because He can relate to us as our Priest

 

Heb. 4:14-16 NKJV and the Message

 

We Can Come Boldly to His Throne of Grace (16)

 

Vs 16 NKJV

 

At His Throne We Obtain Mercy

 

At His Throne We Find Grace

 

We Can Come Boldly to Receive the Help We Need (16)

 

Vs. 16 NKJV, NLT

 

We can be confident He will meet our Need

 

1 John 5:14 NKJV, NLT

Invitation

Broken Vessels (Amazing Grace)

Verse 1
All these pieces
Broken and scattered
In mercy gathered

Mended and whole
Empty handed
But not forsaken
I've been set free
I've been set free
Pre-Chorus
Amazing grace
How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
Oh I once was lost
But now I am found
Was blind but now I see
Chorus
Oh I can see You now
Oh I can see the love in Your eyes
Laying Yourself down
Raising up the broken to life

Verse 2
You take our failure
You take our weakness
You set Your treasure
In jars of clay
So take this heart Lord
I'll be Your vessel
The world to see Your life in me
