Good morning Church! Today we are continuing our series on “Parables of Grace.” As you worship with us today, I hope that we will all gain a deeper understanding of the grace that the Father extends to us.
Grace Alone – Kings Kaleidoscope
Would you read with me an excerpt from the parable of the Good Samaritan:
“[The Samaritan] went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he set him on his own animal and brought him to an inn and took care of him. And the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, ‘Take care of him, and whatever more you spend, I will repay you when I come back” (Luke 10:34-35, ESV).
The Stable Song – Gregory Alan Isakov
As you listen to this, our song of response, you will notice that it is not a typical worship song. To my knowledge, it is not a song affiliated with the church at all. What’s more, I confess that this is actually the song that I had picked for next week’s sermon, so please forgive me for my oversight. However, this is a song in which I see God very clearly none the less, and this is a song about a man who is in desperate need of a Good Samaritan to extend some grace towards him. While this song is a little more poetic than it is clear or concise, it is about the pains of coming to terms with lost love. The song depicts the troubles and pitfalls of a man in distress, and though the narrator of the song accepts blame for his pain, it is evident that we all need grace and we all need rescue from ourselves and the robbers alike.
How Deep The Father’s Love for Us – Austin Stone Worship / Stuart Townsend
The Father’s House – Cory Asbury
Much like man in the story of the Good Samaritan, we are blessed to have a gracious and generous saviour. Let us remember all of these things as we god into our weeks, and let us live into the incredible grace that we have been given by the Father.
