Introduction: Singing in Style

Bible Readings: Psalm 145

(Good News Version)

I will proclaim your greatness, my God and king;
    I will thank you forever and ever.
Every day I will thank you;
    I will praise you forever and ever.
The Lord is great and is to be highly praised;
    his greatness is beyond understanding.


What you have done will be praised from one generation to the next;
    they will proclaim your mighty acts.
They will speak of your glory and majesty,
    and I will meditate on your wonderful deeds.
People will speak of your mighty deeds,
    and I will proclaim your greatness.
They will tell about all your goodness
    and sing about your kindness.
The Lord is loving and merciful,
    slow to become angry and full of constant love.
He is good to everyone
    and has compassion on all he made.

All your creatures, Lord, will praise you,
    and all your people will give you thanks.
They will speak of the glory of your royal power
    and tell of your might,
so that everyone will know your mighty deeds
    and the glorious majesty of your kingdom.
Your rule is eternal,
    and you are king forever.


The Lord is faithful to his promises;
    he is merciful in all his acts.
He helps those who are in trouble;
    he lifts those who have fallen.


All living things look hopefully to you,
    and you give them food when they need it.
You give them enough
    and satisfy the needs of all.


The Lord is righteous in all he does,
    merciful in all his acts.
He is near to those who call to him,
    who call to him with sincerity.
He supplies the needs of those who honour him;
    he hears their cries and saves them.
He protects everyone who loves him,
    but he will destroy the wicked.


I will always praise the Lord;
    let all his creatures praise his holy name forever.

Bible Reading: Ephesians 1:3-8

(Good News Version)

Let us give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!

For in our union with Christ he has blessed us by giving us every spiritual blessing in the heavenly world. Even before the world was made, God had already chosen us to be his through our union with Christ, so that we would be holy and without fault before him. Because of his love God had already decided that through Jesus Christ he would make us his children—this was his pleasure and purpose.

Let us praise God for his glorious grace, for the free gift he gave us in his dear Son! For by the blood of Christ we are set free, that is, our sins are forgiven.

How great is the grace of God, which he gave to us in such large measure!


Last week, we were thinking how the description of God in Psalm 103 is so powerfully fleshed out in Jesus. In Paul's writing we see a similar thing: the blessings mentioned in Psalm 145 - forgiveness and compassion, security and hope - find their culmination in the blessing we receive in Christ. So, let’s take a moment to worship the God who comes to us in Jesus…
