1 Being Church

2 Romans 12:3-8 For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you. Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.

3 Romans 12:3-8 We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man’s gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith. If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.

17 Being Church But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit. Jude 20 Then, I will purify the lips of the peoples, that all of them may call upon the Lord and serve him shoulder to shoulder. Zephaniah 3:9

18 Lord, we come in adoration, Lay our lives before You now. We are here to reach the nations, To tell the world of Jesus’ power. We would seek Your awesome glory, All the gifts that You endow; Called to reach this generation, And now is the appointed hour. We will go in Your name; Go and proclaim Your kingdom. Go in Your name, For we have been chosen to tell all creation That Jesus is King of all kings.

19 We believe that You have spoken Through Your Son to all the earth; Given us this great commission To spread the news of all Your worth. Set apart to serve You only, Let our lives display Your love; Hearts infused that tell the story Of God come down from heaven above. We will go in Your name; Go and proclaim Your kingdom. Go in Your name, For we have been chosen to tell all creation That Jesus is King of all kings.

20 Grant to us a fresh anointing, Holy Spirit, be our guide; Satisfy our deepest longing— Jesus Christ be glorified. Every tribe and every people, Hear the message that we bring; Christ has triumphed over evil, Bow the knee and worship Him. We will go in Your name; Go and proclaim Your kingdom. Go in Your name, For we have been chosen to tell all creation That Jesus is King of all kings. Dave Bilbrough. Copyright © 1993 Kingsway’s Thankyou Music.CCL 6525
