God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,

though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,

Though its waters roar and foam,

though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,

the holy habitation of the Most High.

God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved;

God will help her when morning dawns.

The nations rage, the kingdoms totter; he utters his voice, the earth melts.

The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah

Come, behold the works of the LORD, how he has brought desolations on the earth.

He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;

he breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the chariots with fire.

“Be still, and know that I am God.

I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”

The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah

The Greatest Story Ever Told

THE GOD WHO RESTORES

Rev. Steve Mason

 


 

Pastor to People

         This morning it is our privilege to welcome Dr. Peter Williams, the Warden of Tyndale House, Cambridge, UK. Dr. Williams will be speaking this morning from John 20 with a message titled “Needless Sadness, Needless Doubt”. We warmly welcome him to The Moody Church and pulpit today.

         We also have the privilege of commissioning several STAMP (Short Term Adult Mission Program) teams as a part of our worship service this morning. In a very real sense, each team and member is an answer to the prayer commanded by Jesus in the Gospels: “Pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest” (Luke 10:2).

         Remember next week is our Independence Day concert at 3pm. Please take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to invite un-churched family and friends to this God-honoring, family-friendly special event.

         Your prayers for our shared ministry and staff at The Moody Church are greatly needed and appreciated.

His and yours,

Hutz H. Hertzberg, Executive Pastor

NEEDLESS SADNESS, NEEDLESS DOUBT

John 20 ESV

Dr. Peter J. Williams

 

Dr. Peter J. Williams, Warden (CEO) of Tyndale House, Cambridge, UK, shows us from John 20 what the Resurrection means to us.

John 19 ESV
The Crucifixion

24so they said to one another, “Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it to see whose it shall be.”(AF) This was to fulfill the Scripture which says,
(AG) “They divided my garments among them,
   and for my clothing they cast lots.”

   So the soldiers did these things,

The Death of Jesus

28After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now(AL) finished, said ((AM) to fulfill the Scripture), (AN) “I thirst.”

Jesus’ Side Is Pierced

33But when they came to Jesus and saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs. 34But one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and at once there came out(AV) blood and water. 35(AW) He who saw it has borne witness—(AX) his testimony is true, and he knows that he is telling the truth—(AY) that you also may believe. 36(AZ) For these things took place that the Scripture might be fulfilled:(BA) “Not one of his bones(BB) will be broken.” 37And again another Scripture says,(BC) “They will look on him whom they have pierced.”

Six Marys

There are six Marys mentioned in the Bible

John 20 ESV
The Resurrection

1(A) Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that(B) the stone had been taken away from the tomb. 2So she ran and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple,(C) the one whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and(D) we do not know where they have laid him.” 3(E) So Peter went out with the other disciple, and they were going toward the tomb. 4Both of them were running together, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. 5And stooping to look in, (John) he saw(F) the linen cloths lying there, but he did not go in. 6Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb. He saw the linen cloths lying there, 7and(G) the face cloth, which had been on Jesus’[a] head, not lying with the linen cloths but folded up in a place by itself. 8Then the other disciple,(H) who had reached the tomb first, also went in, and (John) he saw and believed; 9for as yet(I) they did not understand the Scripture,(J) that he must rise from the dead. 10Then the disciples went back to their homes.

Jesus Appears to Mary Magdalene

11But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb, and as she wept she stooped to look into the tomb. 12And(K) she saw(L) two angels in white, sitting where the body of Jesus had lain, one at the head and one at the feet. 13They said to her,(M) “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them,(N) “They have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid him.” 14Having said this, she turned around and(O) saw Jesus standing,(P) but she did not know that it was Jesus. 15Jesus said to her, (Q) “Woman, why are you weeping?(R) Whom are you seeking?” Supposing him to be(S) the gardener, she said to him, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.” 16Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned and said to him in Aramaic,[b](T) “Rabboni!” (which means Teacher). 17Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to(U) my brothers and say to them,(V) ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to(W) my God and your God.'” 18Mary Magdalene(X) went and announced to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord”—and that he had said these things to her.

Jesus Appears to the Disciples

19(Y) On the evening(Z) of that day, the first day of the week,(AA) the doors being locked where the disciples were(AB) for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, (AC) “Peace be with you.” 20When he had said this,(AD) he showed them his hands and his side. Then(AE) the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. 21Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As(AF) the Father has sent me,(AG) even so I am sending you.” 22And when he had said this, he(AH) breathed on them and said to them, (AI) “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23(AJ) If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you withhold forgiveness from any, it is withheld.”

Jesus and Thomas

24Now(AK) Thomas, one of the Twelve, called the Twin,[c] was not with them when Jesus came. 25So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them,(AL) “Unless I see in his hands the mark of the nails, and place my finger into the mark of the nails, and place my hand into his side, I will never believe.”

26Eight days later, his disciples were inside again, and Thomas was with them.(AM) Although the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.” 27Then he said to Thomas, (AN) “Put your finger here, and see my hands; and put out your hand, and place it in my side. Do not disbelieve, but believe.” 28Thomas answered him,(AO) “My Lord and my God!” 29Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me?(AP) Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

The Purpose of This Book

30(AQ) Now Jesus did many other signs(AR) in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; 31(AS) but these are written so that you may(AT) believe that Jesus is the Christ,(AU) the Son of God, and that by believing(AV) you may have life(AW) in his name.

Scripture Reading Selections from Matthew 6 (ESV) Vivienne Dawkins

        “And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. Pray then like this:

        “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

        “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?          And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

         Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.

         But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

Rev. Steve Mason

 


 

Pastor to People

         Thanks, friends, for your prayers for Rebecca and me while we were in Europe . God gave us a great tour, with new friends and new experiences. We are thankful for the ongoing ministry of our pastoral staff and leadership of The Moody Church in our absence.

         Each summer the elders have graciously given me permission to be absent from the pulpit for a number of weeks. This summer, my schedule will be intermittent; for example, although I will be absent next Sunday, I will be back speaking on Sunday, July 4. That morning my topic will be “When a Nation Forgets God.” Then, of course, Rebecca and I will enjoy our inspiring Fourth of July celebration that afternoon.

         Next Sunday morning we will have the privilege of hearing from a brilliant young scholar, Dr. Peter Williams, who will speak in our morning service. He was educated in Cambridge and returned to teach there as well as in other academic institutions. He is making a great impact for the Gospel in the scholarly world. We will not only be blessed but informed, motivated and challenged.

Have a great week.

Scripture Reading Psalm 77:1–15 (ESV) Dr. Hutz Hertzberg

I cry aloud to God, aloud to God, and he will hear me.

In the day of my trouble I seek the Lord;

in the night my hand is stretched out without wearying;

my soul refuses to be comforted.

When I remember God, I moan;

When I meditate, my spirit faints.

You hold my eyelids open; I am so troubled that I cannot speak.

I consider the days of old, the years long ago.

I said, “Let me remember my song in the night; let me meditate in my heart.”

Then my spirit made a diligent search:

“Will the Lord spurn forever, and never again be favorable?

Has his steadfast love forever ceased? Are his promises at an end for all time?

Has God forgotten to be gracious? Has he in anger shut up his compassion?”

Then I said, “I will appeal to this, to the years of the right hand of the Most High.”

I will remember the deeds of the Lord;

Yes, I will remember your wonders of old.

I will ponder all your work, and meditate on your mighty deeds.

Your way, O God, is holy. What god is great like our God?

You are the God who works wonders;

you have made known your might among the peoples.

You with your arm redeemed your people, the children of Jacob and Joseph.

The Crucifixion

 

32(AN) Two others, who were criminals, were led away to be put to death with him. 33(AO) And when they came to the place that is called The Skull, there they crucified him, and the criminals,(AP) one on his right and one on his left. 34And Jesus said, “Father,(AQ) forgive them,(AR) for they know not what they do.”[b] And they cast lots(AS) to divide his garments. 35And(AT) the people stood by, watching,(AU) but(AV) the rulers(AW) scoffed at him, saying,(AX) “He saved others;(AY) let him save himself,(AZ) if he is(BA) the Christ of God,(BB) his Chosen One!” 36The soldiers also mocked him, coming up and(BC) offering him sour wine 37and saying,(BD) “If you are(BE) the King of the Jews, save yourself!” 38(BF) There was also an inscription over him,[c] “This is(BG) the King of the Jews.”

39(BH) One of the criminals who were hanged(BI) railed at him,[d] saying, “Are you not(BJ) the Christ? Save yourself and us!” 40But the other rebuked him, saying, “Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? 41And we indeed justly, for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.” 42And he said, “Jesus, remember me(BK) when you come into your kingdom.” 43And he said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in(BL) Paradise.”

The Death of Jesus

44(BM) It was now about the sixth hour,[e] and there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour,[f] 45while the sun’s light failed. And(BN) the curtain of the temple was torn in two. 46Then Jesus,(BO) calling out with a loud voice, said, “Father,(BP) into your hands I(BQ) commit my spirit!” And having said this(BR) he breathed his last.

Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. I charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who in his testimony before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, to keep the commandment unstained and free from reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which he will display at the proper time—he who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, who dwells in unapproachable light, whom no one has ever seen or can see. To him be honor and eternal dominion. Amen.

He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty, whence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, God’s holy church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

Romans 5:1–11

Pastor Eric Naus

 

Romans 5 ESV

Peace with God Through Faith

 

1(A) Therefore, since we have been justified by faith,(B) we[a] have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2Through him we have also(C) obtained access by faith[b] into this grace(D) in which we stand, and(E) we[c] rejoice[d] in hope of the glory of God. 3More than that, we(F) rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering(G) produces endurance, 4and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, 5and(H) hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love(I) has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

6For(J) while we were still weak, at the right time(K) Christ died for the ungodly. 7For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— 8but(L) God shows his love for us in that(M) while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9Since, therefore,(N) we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from(O) the wrath of God. 10For if(P) while we were enemies(Q) we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by(R) his life. 11More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received(S) reconciliation.

  

2 Corinthians 5 ESV

The Ministry of Reconciliation

 

19that is, in Christ God was reconciling[c] the world to himself,(AD) not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us(AE) the message of reconciliation.
