Hello FPCL Family!

 

Last Sunday, as part of our series about The Way taught by Jesus, Pastor Steve examined the story of The Prodigal Son from the point of view of the older brother in the story. This Sunday, we will revisit this story from the younger brother’s point of view to see what we learn about finding our way back to God when we feel that our choices have made us lose our way. I look forward to worshiping with you!

 

with love, Denia :)

 

Questions to Ponder:
• What choices have you made in life that made you feel far from God?
• What brought you back to center, made you want to choose differently?
• What path did you take to a draw closer to God once you desired it?

Sermon Series: The Way
Sunday's Message: Finding Your Way (Back)

Scripture passages:

 

Luke 15:1-7 Now all the tax collectors and sinners were coming near to listen to him. And the Pharisees and the scribes were grumbling and saying, “This fellow welcomes sinners and eats with them.” So he told them this parable: “Which one of you, having a hundred sheep and losing one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the one that is lost until he finds it? When he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders and rejoices. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.’ Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.

 

Luke 15:8-10 “Or what woman having ten silver coins, if she loses one of them, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it? When she has found it, she calls together her friends and neighbors, saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found the coin that I had lost.’ Just so, I tell you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”

 

Luke 15:11-24 Then Jesus said, “There was a man who had two sons. The younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the share of the property that will belong to me.’ So he divided his property between them. A few days later the younger son gathered all he had and traveled to a distant country, and there he squandered his property in dissolute living. When he had spent everything, a severe famine took place throughout that country, and he began to be in need. So he went and hired himself out to one of the citizens of that country, who sent him to his fields to feed the pigs. He would gladly have filled his stomach with the pods that the pigs were eating; and no one gave him anything. But when he came to himself he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired hands have bread enough and to spare, but here I am dying of hunger! I will get up and go to my father, and I will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you; I am no longer worthy to be called your son; treat me like one of your hired hands.” ’ So he set off and went to his father. But while he was still far off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion; he ran and put his arms around him and kissed him. Then the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you; I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ But the father said to his slaves, ‘Quickly, bring out a robe—the best one—and put it on him; put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. And get the fatted calf and kill it, and let us eat and celebrate; for this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found!’ And they began to celebrate.

SONG: The Way (CCLI # 7089024)

 

Vs. 1 Through every battle, Through every heartbreak,
Through every circumstance, I believe that You are my fortress
Oh You are my portion, You are my hiding place, Oh I believe You are

 

Chorus The Way the Truth the Life, I believe You are,
The Way the Truth the Life, I believe (You are)

 

Vs. 2 Through every blessing, Through every promise,
Through every breath I take, I believe that You are provider
You are protector. You are the One I love, I believe You are

 

Bridge It's a new horizon, And I'm set on You
And You meet me here today, With mercies that are new
All my fears and doubts, They can all come too
Because they can't stay long
(When I'm here with You)
(When I believe You are)

 

SONG: Stand By Me (#495) (Vss. 1-4)

 

Vs. 1 When the storms of life are raging, stand by me;
When the storms of life are raging, stand by me.
When the world is tossing me like a ship upon the sea,
Thou who rulest wind and water, stand by me.

 

Vs. 2 In the midst of tribulation, stand by me;
In the midst of tribulation, stand by me.
When the hosts of sin assail, and my strength begins to fail,
Thou who never lost a battle, stand by me.

 

Vs. 3 In the midst of faults and failures, stand by me;
in the midst of faults and failures, stand by me,
When I’ve done the best I can, and my friends misunderstand,
Thou who knowest all about me, stand by me.

 

Vs. 4 When I’m growing old and feeble, stand by me;
When I’m growing old and feeble, stand by me.
When my life becomes a burden, and I’m nearing chilly Jordan,
O thou Lily of the Valley, stand by me.

SONG: Living Hope (CCLI Song # 7106807)

Vs. 1 How great the chasm that lay between us
How high the mountain I could not climb
In desperation I turned to heaven
And spoke Your name into the night
Then through the darkness Your loving-kindness
Tore through the shadows of my soul
The work is finished the end is written
Jesus Christ my living hope

 

Vs. 2 Who could imagine so great a mercy
What heart could fathom such boundless grace
The God of ages stepped down from glory
To wear my sin and bear my shame
The cross has spoken I am forgiven
The King of kings calls me His own
Beautiful Savior I’m Yours forever
Jesus Christ my living hope

 

Chorus Hallelujah praise the One who set me free
Hallelujah death has lost its grip on me
You have broken every chain
There’s salvation in Your name
Jesus Christ my living hope

 

Vs. 3 Then came the morning that sealed the promise
Your buried body began to breathe
Out of the silence the Roaring Lion
Declared the grave has no claim on me

(REPEAT) Jesus Yours is the victory whoa

Ending Jesus Christ my living hope
Oh God You are my living hope
