Sermon Title: “Speaking with God: Prayers of Thanksgiving”
Scripture: 1 Corinthians 15:12-19, Psalm 138:1-8
Choral Anthem: “O How He Loves You and Me” and “Blessed Quietness” Kurt Kaiser and Words: Manie P. Ferguson, Music: W. S. Marshall, Arranged by Cleveland and Nix.
O how he loves you and me!... He gave his life. What more could he give? O how he loves you…O how he loves you and me. Jesus to Calv’ry did go; his love for sinners to show. What he did there brought hope from despair. O how he loves you. O how he loves you and me.
Joys are flowing like a river, since the Comforter has come; Christ abides with us forever, makes the trusting heart a home. Blessed quietness, holy quietness, what assurance in my soul. On the stormy sea, Jesus speaks to me, and the billows cease to roll. Like the rain that falls from heaven, like the sunlight from the sky, so the Spirit, too, is given, coming on us from on high. What a wonderful salvation, when we always see Christ’s face, what a perfect habitation, what a quiet resting place.
