Date: December 20, 2015 Born Is the King Who Is Love

Title: Born Is the King Who Is Love (Isaiah 16:1-5)

Sermon Summary: Run no further than to our King. His reign is not built on any quest for riches, it is built on love and proven by the sacrifice of the founder. If you need love, come to Jesus. People have been fleeing the world for refuge in Him for hundreds of generations; won’t you find rest in him too?

Title: One Precious Life, His Life (Acts 25:1-12)

Poem:
One Precious Life

There is but one; one precious life,
To seek and to save and to treasure
There is but one; one precious life,
Whose value is beyond measure

This is the life that was laid down for you
This is the life that was given
This is the life that Eternity’s seen
This is the life worth your living.

So, fight, fight, fight tooth and nail
Fight to give all you receive
The life that is precious is not your own but the King’s
And his life is for all who believe.

There is but one; one precious life,
To seek and to save and to treasure
There is but one; one precious life,
Whose value is beyond measure

There is but one; one precious life,
Whose glory will outshine all others
When the hope all seems gone and we’ve spent all we have
For eternity, Christ’s life, we’ll discover.
