1 Corinthians 12:1-11

read by Carole Hille

Now about the gifts of the Spirit, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed.
You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols.
Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, "Jesus be cursed," and no one can say, "Jesus is Lord," except by the Holy Spirit.
There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them.
There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord.
There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.
Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.
To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit,
to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit,
to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues.
All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.

 

 

Reading: John 2:1-11

John 2:1-11

read by Ronnie Owens

On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus' mother was there,
and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding.
When the wine was gone, Jesus' mother said to him, "They have no more wine."
"Woman, why do you involve me?" Jesus replied. "My hour has not yet come."
His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you."
Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.
Jesus said to the servants, "Fill the jars with water"; so they filled them to the brim.
Then he told them, "Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet." They did so,
and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside
and said, "Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now."
What Jesus did here in Cana of Galilee was the first of the signs through which he revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him.

Jesus Is Lord

Words & Music: David J Mansell

Jesus is Lord!
Creation's voice proclaims it
For by His power each tree and flower
Was planned and made
Jesus is Lord!
The universe declares it
Sun, moon and stars in heaven
Cry, 'Jesus is Lord!'
Jesus is Lord!
Jesus is Lord!
Praise Him with hallelujahs
For Jesus is Lord!
Jesus is Lord!
Yet from His throne eternal
In flesh He came to die in pain
On Calvary's tree
Jesus is Lord!
From Him all life proceeding
Yet gave His life a ransom
Thus setting us free
Jesus is Lord!
Jesus is Lord!
Praise Him with hallelujahs
For Jesus is Lord!
Jesus is Lord!
O'er sin the mighty conqueror
From death He rose, and all His foes
Shall own His name
Jesus is Lord!
God sent His Holy Spirit
To show by works of power
That Jesus is Lord!
Jesus is Lord!
Jesus is Lord!
Praise Him with hallelujahs
For Jesus is Lord!

Rejoice, The Lord Is King

Words: Charles Wesley
Music: G F Handel

Rejoice, the Lord is King!
Your Lord and King adore;
Rejoice, give thanks, and sing,
And triumph evermore;
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!
Jesus, the Saviour, reigns,
The God of truth and love;
When He had purged our stains
He took His seat above;
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!
His kingdom cannot fail,
He rules o’er earth and heaven,
The keys of death and hell
Are to our Jesus given;
Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;
Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!
Rejoice in glorious hope!
Jesus the Judge shall come,
And take His servants up
To their eternal home;
We soon shall hear the archangel's voice;
the trump of God shall sound, rejoice!
