1 The LORD is my shepherd,
I shall not be in want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
6 Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

I wonder what and who you trust in! When I am sitting on a chair I am putting my trusting in the chair to support me! When I go to the doctor, I am trusting in that doctor to help me! These are simple examples of everyday trust!
Yet in other cases, trust in the world today is a missing ingredient. The one thing that most people today will say they trust in is them selves. The world says to trust yourself, don't rely on anyone else because all others are unreliable and the only person you can trust is yourself and you should only ask for help if your really desperate for it. I have had people tell me that!
It is like a refreshing breath of clean air, that we come to those words in Proverbs. When God says "Trust me", he is totally trustworthy. In the Bible we read of people learning to trust God. One such person was the man David. As we look through is life, we see David is growing in confidence from the shepherd boy to the aged and wise King.
We see him growing in rest and trust in and of God alone. Through out his life, David trusted God! One example is when he hid in the mountains and caves from Saul, Absalom and all others that were after him - he trusted God to save him.
We read that David's only hope, honour, refuge, rest and salvation was in God. That was what David trusted God for! David trusted in God for his salvation, both physical and spiritual. David learned to trust God for everything, including the bare essentials such as food and drink. Go out today, willing to trust God for every area of your life and praise Him when he supplies.
Holy and loving God - Open our eyes to see you. Open our minds to trust you. Open our hearts to love you, this day and forever. As we go now May we trust and love You each moment, showing this trust and love to others by being shining lights in darkness and gleaming mirrors of your love, power, majesty and glory. In the name of Jesus whom we trust for salvation and iIn the power of the Holy Spirit whom we trust to transform us! Amen

1. Opening Prayer
O God our Father! We thank you for a new day in which we can serve you! Thank you for placing joy into our hearts and life, even when we are not aware of it! As we come before you now, still our hearts and enable us to worship you. Thank you for your Son, Jesus Christ, who for the joy set before him, endured the cross so that all those who follow Him, may have new life in Him! We ask this in Jesus' name and in the power of the Holy Spirit, who was sent to dwell in all those who follow the Son. Amen!
2. Song - When I Survey
3. Message Part 1
It is no exaggeration to say that the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the centre point of all human history. When God came in human form, in order to bring salvation to humanity, through that man's death on the cross - the wondrous cross the singer sang about.  The wondrous cross where the Prince of glory died and upon which we survey. The wondrous cross where we see this Jesus bleeding from all parts of His body, so that humanity could choose to take up his offer of salvation or reject it.
Blood flowing from his hands, feet and side and where a crown of thorns was impaled into his head -  the eternal prince of glory died, in an act of love beyond our human comprehension! But he didn't just die, because He rose again from the dead three days later - which was part of the joy set before him as he endured the cross! That's the Jesus we celebrate today! That's the Jesus, in whose name we pray now, to God the Father in the power of the Holy Spirit.
4. Prayers
We now come to prayer! Please do give to God our Father, with a grateful and expectant heart, either out loud or silently, the names of people who are in need. Our God knows the details and is faithful to respond.  Let us pray!
5. Revelation 19v11-16

I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war.
His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God.
The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean.
Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. "He will rule them with an iron scepter." He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty.
On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:
KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
6. Message Part 2
Jesus! Faithful and True! Word of God! Prince of Glory! King of Kings! Lord of Lords! The rider being talked about is Jesus, the Prince of Glory, Son of God and decreed "Word of God!" That must have been an awesome sight! Jesus, the Prince of Glory who is now entitled the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Nobody can get into heaven except  by being a follower of Him! It was his death, resurrection and ascension that allows Him to be the one and only way, one and only truth and one and only life. Nobody can get to God without Him and nobody can enter the gates of heaven without Him.
To enter heaven you need to be declared sinless and right with God! That is only achieved by accepting Jesus Christ as your only Lord and Saviour.  He paid the price that nobody else could pay - dying on a cross, rising to new life and ascending back to right hand of God the Father. You can do it right now, by simply saying, "Jesus I choose to follow you!"  I cannot promise you an easy life if you do choose to be a follower of this Jesus, but I can promise you a fulfilled life as you do so and stick with Him! He will be with you through both the hard and good times of life! You don't need to know everything about Him to start following Him, but when you do start to follow, you will quickly learn about Him. If you decide for Jesus now, please let us know! So we conclude with a prayer.
7. Closing Prayer
Bring us, O Lord God, at our last awakening into the house and gate of heaven,
to enter into that gate and dwell in that house,
where there shall be no darkness nor dazzling,
but one equal light;
no noise nor silence, but one equal music;
no fears nor hopes, but one equal possession;
no ends nor beginnings, but one equal eternity;
in the habitations of your glory and dominion,
world without end. (John Donne)
For those that don't know you, around the world, I pray that they would come to a saving knowledge of you - the praise and glory of the Father, in the name of the Son and in the power of the Holy Spirit.

G'day and welcome to Partakers Wednesday Worship on the 20th of July, 2011.  Lets start today with a song "Your Love O Lord"
Thanksgiving and Joy
O God, great and wonderful,
Are you, O Lord!
Who is like You?
None can compare to You
For you are beauty in holiness and majesty.
As we come now to worship you now,
we acknowledge you are the Almighty One.
We thank you that we can worship you!
Amen
Bible Readings
Our Old Testament reading today is taken from Psalm 89. Our reader today is Richard, so over to you, Richard!
Psalm 89v1-2, 5-8
1 I will sing of the LORD's great love forever;
with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known
through all generations.
2 I will declare that your love stands firm forever,
that you have established your faithfulness in heaven itself.
5 The heavens praise your wonders, LORD,
your faithfulness too, in the assembly of the holy ones.
6 For who in the skies above can compare with the LORD?
Who is like the LORD among the heavenly beings?
7 In the council of the holy ones God is greatly feared;
he is more awesome than all who surround him.
8 Who is like you, LORD God Almighty?
You, LORD, are mighty, and your faithfulness surrounds you.
Our New Testament reading is from Revelation 11:16-17
16 And the twenty-four elders, who were seated on their thrones before God, fell on their faces and worshiped God, 17 saying:
"We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty,
the One who is and who was,
because you have taken your great power
and have begun to reign.

Bible Talk
Throughout the Bible, God is called Almighty. For example, in our Old Testament reading from Psalm 89v8 we read "Who is like you, LORD God Almighty? You, LORD, are mighty, and your faithfulness surrounds you. "
But how is God, almighty? God being Almighty, can be summed up in 3 words.
Omnipresent -God is Almighty, in that He is wholly present everywhere. He fills the universe in all its parts without division (Psalm 139v7-12; Jeremiah 23v23-24). For example in Ezekiel 1, Israel is in exile in Babylon and they thought God was left in the Temple in Jerusalem. Yet God appears to Ezekiel in order to show that God was also in Babylon with His people! He is also present within all those who are Christians, because God the Holy Spirit lives within them!
Omnipotent -God is Almighty, in that He has unlimited power to do all things that are the object of power. With Almighty God nothing is impossible. But we have to take those verses from the Bible and read them in context. That is because there are things God cannot do. He cannot do anything that is contrary to His own nature. For instance, He cannot declare something infinite if that something is finite. Or because God is holy and cant look upon sin, God cannot therefore sin. If it was possible for God to sin, He would case to be God Almighty and therefore need His own saviour, which is certainly impossible and untenable! Omnipotence is an essential quality of God for if God were not all-powerful then He would not be God and would not be worthy of worship. He has amazing power! God created the universe with His eternal and infinite power! God made everything out of nothing and He sustains it and gives all of it life!
Omniscient - God is Almighty, in that He is has perfect knowledge of all things. The Psalmist writes: "O Lord, you have searched me and you know me, You know when I sit and when I rise...You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways" (Ps. 139:1-2a & 3). God knows all things, past, present, and future and all possible circumstances, solutions and outcomes. Therefore He knows all that we do (which includes the remembrance of all that we have done), all that we think (and the record of those thoughts), and all that we do say and all that we could say.
So what?
So God is Almighty in presence, power and knowledge and He is mighty to save. As we seek to live holy lives, let us remember that whatever we do, Almighty God is watching. Watching not to condemn us, but watching in order to love us as any good father does to his children. And save us, He does! Jesus Christ, being the Son of God will do an amazing thing to all those who have taken up His free offer of salvation. And because we are saved, the Spirit lives within us! Almighty God who is amazing! And yet this amazing and almighty God, who has us as children, can do something like this.
We read that in Revelation 21v3-5:
"Look! God's dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death' or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." 5 He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything new!" Then he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true."
Revelation 21v4, isn't that just the most amazing verse with a great big WOW factor? Picture it! Jesus Christ taking your face in His scarred hands and He will wipe away your tears - tears of suffering and tears of joy.  God is Almighty! Almighty in presence, power and knowledge. Yet this Almighty God, is full of mercy and grace, and when time on earth comes to an end, He will wipe away the tears of His children. Amazing and Almighty God.
Prayers
Lets speak to this Almighty God now. Let's pray!
Lord, again we lift to you all those affected by the drought in the Horn of Africa.  Hear their cries! Help the aid agencies and national governments to assist these people quickly! Stoke up the imagination of people who can help those in need and find solutions to these ongoing problems. Help those who are richf financially to give generously. Where there is conflict and strife, Almighty God, bring peace. Where there is great need, Almighty Father, bring supply and solutions. Where there is injustice, bring justice.
I bring before you now, Kathy, the mother of a dear friend. Lord, you know her situation! You know the worries of the medical staff and family concerning her. We pray for quick healing and assure her of your love for her. We ask this in Jesus Name, Amen!
Hymn / Song
Open my eyes - Steve Gooden
Benediction
Lets close in prayer, with these ancient words:
May the love of God the Father, the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all, evermore. Amen

G'day and welcome to Partakers Wednesday Worship on the 27th of July, 2011.

Thanksgiving and Joy
O Almighty God, great and wonderful are you!
We praise you God the Father that you cares for us!
We praise you God the Son, Jesus Christ, that you are our saviour and mediator!
We praise you God the Holy Spirit, that you lives inside us as a deposit and seal of our salvation!
We praise you Father, Son and Holy Spirit that You are the very givers of life!
We come now to worship you!
Amen
Old Testament reading
Psalm 40v16-17:
Our LORD, let your worshipers rejoice and be glad.
They love you for saving them, so let them always say,
"The LORD is wonderful!"
17I am poor and needy, but, LORD God, you care about me,
and you come to my rescue. Please hurry and help."

New Testament Readings.
Luke 6v38 - "Give away your life; you'll find life given back, but not merely given back-given back with bonus and blessing. Giving, not getting, is the way. Generosity begets generosity."
Luke 12v33-34 - "Be generous. Give to the poor. Get yourselves a bank that can't go bankrupt, a bank in heaven far from bankrobbers, safe from embezzlers, a bank you can bank on. It's obvious, isn't it? The place where your treasure is, is the place you will most want to be, and end up being.


Song
Be thou my vision - Julie McMinn
How is your vision of Jesus Christ?
I wonder how your vision of Jesus Christ is? Practically everybody is comfortable with Jesus as a baby. Almost everybody is comfortable with Jesus as a great moral teacher. Just as they are with the Jesus hanging on a cross as the death of a tragic want-to-be hero. Most Christians are comfortable with the Jesus who rose from the dead to new life and then ascended back to the right hand of God the Father. Most Christians are comfortable with the hope that Jesus will come again and that they will be with Him forever.
But if that's your vision of Jesus Christ, the most outstanding man in all of history, then I would suggest that your vision of Jesus is too small, too pre-packaged and preconceived! Let me ask a few questions and see how you respond to them!
Are you comfortable with the Jesus that also demands you die to self and live to, and for, Him alone?
Are you comfortable with the Jesus who demands that the poor, oppressed and the lonely are taken care of by you?
Are you comfortable with the Jesus who is going to call you to account for every word you have spoken or thought and not spoken when you had the opportunity?
Are you comfortable with the Jesus who is going to call you to account for every opportunity you have taken in His name or missed taking in His name?
Are you comfortable with the Jesus who calls you to serve Him alone and commands that you serve others as part of your service of Him?
Are you comfortable with the Jesus who calls you to give, keep giving and trust in Him to supply your needs?
How did you get on? How is your commitment to Jesus Christ? When Jesus Christ called you to follow Him, He called you to follow Him wholeheartedly and committed to only Him.  How is your vision of Jesus Christ now?
Jesus Christ calls people to be totally committed to himself. Perhaps the greatest indicator of your commitment to Jesus Christ is in your giving? How is your giving? Jesus talked about giving quite a lot, as indicated by our readings in Luke 6 and 12.  God gave everything so that you may have life and life in abundance. Not for its own sake, but for the sake of Jesus Christ. So by giving generously, you are reflecting that God has given abundantly to you.  And a further suggestion is that you don't make a big show of your giving but do it quietly and secretly if you can, so that all the glory goes to God and Him alone.
Giving generously is not just financial. It could be an email, a smile, a touch, a kind word or a phone call.  These things too are valuable to the recipient, particularly the lonely and oppressed. Go and give what you can. We are to give generously, but not just to those we like. Just as we are not to love only those we like and get on with. We are commanded to love everybody, particularly our enemies, and give to those in need.
Imagine the impact for the spread of Jesus Christ, if Christians and churches gave like that in their communities! Many people speak that prayer we read from the Old Testament - Psalm 40-v17 - crying out to God for help. It may well be, that you can be God's arms and legs for that person, crying it out to God in prayer.  Ask God to expand your imagination to give and then be prepared to follow it and give to others. May your vision of Jesus Christ be enhanced through your imaginative giving!
Lord, in your mercy, expand our imagination to give to all others generously what we can, to be your arms and legs and to be the answer to the cries of somebody else. Amen.
Benediction
Lets close in prayer, with these ancient words:
May the love of God the Father, the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all, evermore. Amen
