PRELUDE

*CALL  TO  WORSHIP (Responsively)

L: Since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God.

P: We have obtained access into this grace in which we stand through Jesus Christ our Lord.

L: Suffering produces endurance and endurance produces character.

P: Character produces hope and hope does not disappoint us because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

PRAISE  TIME

“ You Are My Hiding Place" # 2055 TFWS lyrics

"His Grace Is Sufficient for Me"
Many times I'm tried and tested
As I travel day by day
Oft I meet with pain and sorrow
And there's trouble in the way.
But I have a sweet assurance
That my soul the Lord will lead
And in Him there is strength for every need.

O, His grace is sufficient for me.
And His love is abundant and free.
And what joy fills my soul,
Just to know, just to know
That His grace is sufficient for me.
When the tempter brings confusion
And I don't know what to do,
On my knees I turn to Jesus
For He'll always see me through
Then despair is changed to victory.
Every doubt just melts away
And in Him there is hope for everyday.

O, His grace is sufficient for me.
And His love is abundant and free.
And what joy fills my soul,
Just to know, just to know
That His grace is sufficient for me.
