Come to Me (Akers, Capps and Bleecker)
Scripture Reading: James 1:2-6
"Count it all joy, my brothers,
when you meet trials of various kinds,
for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.
And let steadfastness have its full effect,
that you may be perfect and complete,
lacking in nothing.
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God,
who gives generously to all without reproach,
and it will be given him.
But let him ask in faith,
with no doubting,
for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea
that is driven and tossed by the wind."
Rock of Ages (Hastings and Toplady)
Gospel & Thanksgiving
Scripture Reading: John 10:7-11; 16:33
"So Jesus again said to them,
“Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.
All who came before me are thieves and robbers,
but the sheep did not listen to them.
I am the door. If anyone enters by me,
he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture.
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy.
I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.
I am the good shepherd.
The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
I have said these things to you,
that in me you may have peace.
In the world you will have tribulation.
But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
New Again (Ritter and Cosper)
Sermon Text: Romans 8:35-37
"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?
Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine,
or nakedness, or danger, or sword?
As it is written,
“For your sake we are being killed
all the day long;
we are regarded as sheep to be
No, in all these things
we are more than conquerors through him who loved us."
