We sang this song at my daughter's wedding last weekend


 

For Joy in God's Creation
O heavenly Father, who hast filled the world with beauty:
Open our eyes to behold thy gracious hand in all thy works;
that, rejoicing in thy whole creation, we may learn to serve thee with gladness;
for the sake of him through whom all things were made,
thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Prayer For All Sorts and Conditions of Men

O God, the creator and preserver of all mankind,
we humbly beseech thee for all sorts and conditions of men;
that thou wouldest be pleased to make they ways known unto them
thy saving health unto all nations.
More especially we pray for thy holy Church universal;
that it may be so guided and governed by thy good Spirit,
that all who profess and call themselves Christians may be led into the way of truth,
and hold the faith in unity of spirit, in the bond of peace,
and in righteousness of life.
Finally, we commend to thy fatherly goodness
all those who are in any ways afflicted or distressed,
in mind, body, or estate;
[insert your petitions here];
that it may please thee to comfort and relieve
them according to their several necessities,
giving them patience under their sufferings,
and a happy issue out of all their afflictions.
And this we beg for Jesus Christ's sake.
Amen

Scripture Reading:  Hebrews 13:11-12 (NASB Bible Gateway)

For the bodies of those animals whose blood is brought into the holy place by the high priest as an offering for sin, are burned outside the camp. Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people through His own blood, suffered outside the gate.

The Apostle's Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty, 
    maker of heaven and earth; 
And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord; 
    who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, 
    born of the Virgin Mary, 
    suffered under Pontius Pilate, 
    was crucified, dead, and buried. 
    He descended into hell.
    The third day he rose again from the dead.
    He ascended into heaven, 
and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father almighty. 
From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. 
I believe in the Holy Ghost, 
the holy catholic Church, 
 the communion of saints, 
 the forgiveness of sins, 
 the resurrection of the body, 
 and the life everlasting. 
Amen

Benediction and Response

May the God of peace,
who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus,
and great shepherd of the sheep,
by the blood of the eternal covenant,
equip you with everything good that you may do his will,
working in you that which is pleasing in his sight;
through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever.  

Hebrews 13:20-21

And all God's people said:  Thanks be to God.
Amen!

  1. REASONS NOT FOUND IN THE BIBLE TO AVOID WATER BAPTISM

    Here listed are non-Scriptural reasons to reject water baptism.

    1. Do not be baptism because it is an act of obedience and obedience is not essential to be saved.
    2. Do not be baptized because the thief on the cross was not baptized and he was saved.
    3. Do not be baptized because it is essential to join a denominational church, however, you can get into heaven without being baptized in water.
    4. Do not be baptized because baptism is a work of the law of Moses, and works cannot saved.
    5. Do not be baptized because being baptized by someone is working your way to heaven.
    6. Do not be baptized because your preacher said it was not essential in order to have sins forgiven.
    7. Do not be baptized because your creed book says you are saved the very minute you believe.
    8. Do not be baptized because certain men claim that Mark 16:16 should not be included in the Bible.
    9. Do not be baptized because some Bible commentaries state that men are baptized because they have already been saved.
    10. Do not be baptized because all of your friends and church members believe that baptism is not essential to the forgiveness of sins.
    11. Do not be baptized because it is simply a testimony faith, but is not necessary to be saved.
    12. Do not be baptized because God was not smart enough to have Acts 2:38 translated correctly. Baptized for the forgiveness of sins is wrong. It should be because your sins have already been forgiven. Do not be baptized because the Bible cannot be trusted.

    If baptism is not essential to salvation why would you want to get wet?

  2. Thank you Wade. It is good for me to be reminded of what Jesus did for me and to stop thinking it is all about me!!!!

  3. @ Deb:
    Umm…it’s still showing the wrong quote for the reference….Hebrews 13:11-12 says, “11 For the bodies of those animals, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned outside the camp. 12 Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people with His own blood, suffered outside the gate.”

  4. @ Deb:
    Hmm….not sure what’s up, but it still has the wrong reference. The part I’m talking about is right above Wade’s video here you have the text of the reference. The text that is showing on my load is not the referenced verses listed directly above the text….. 😉
