11.17.19 | Church for the City, Week 7

1 Corinthians 9:19-22

19 Though I am free and belong to no one, I have made myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. 20 To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. 21 To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law. 22 To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some.


| MAIN IDEA |

Instead of asking if it's good for me, ask if it's good for we. Be the example.  


1 Corinthians 9:24-27

24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 26 Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. 27 No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.

| MAIN IDEA |

Instead of asking if it's good for me, ask if it's good for we. Be the example.  


A. Condition Quietly

1 Timothy 4:7 

Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales; rather, train yourself to be godly.


When we are conditioning our lives in faith, we are practicing what is called "spiritual disciplines." These disciplines help foster our connection to God:


  • They are both Personal/Interpersonal 
  • They are activities, not attitudes
  • They are taught within the Biblical writings
  • They point us back to the mission


B. Love Publicly

John 13:34-35

34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

Lion & The Lamb

He's coming on the clouds, kings and kingdoms will bow down

And every chain will break, as broken hearts declare His praise

Who can stop the Lord Almighty?

Our God is the Lion, the Lion of Judah

He's roaring with power and fighting our battles

And every knee will bow before You

Our God is the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain

For the sin of the world, His blood breaks the chains

And every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb

Oh every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb

So open up the gates, make way before the King of kings

Our God who calls the saved is here to set the captives free

Who can stop the Lord Almighty?

Our God is the Lion, the Lion of Judah

He's roaring with power and fighting our battles

And every knee will bow before You

Our God is the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain

For the sin of the world, His blood breaks the chains

And every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb

Oh every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb

Who can stop the Lord Almighty?

Who can stop the Lord Almighty?

Who can stop the Lord Almighty?

Who can stop the Lord Almighty?

Oh who can stop the Lord Almighty?

Who can stop the Lord Almighty?

Oh who can stop the Lord Almighty?

Who can stop the Lord?

Our God is the Lion, the Lion of Judah

He's roaring with power and fighting our battles

And every knee will bow before You

Our God is the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain

For the sin of the world, His blood breaks the chains

And every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb

Oh every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb

And every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb

Every knee will bow before the Lion and the Lamb


Cover The Earth

I've seen it before

Felt it before

Peace I can't explain

Love that won the war

Is here now

Can you feel it now?

Let it cover you

Let the Spirit rise up, let it break through the walls

And beat down the doors, and crash through the windows

And cover the earth, the earth, the earth, the earth

Let the Spirit rise up, let it break through the walls

And beat down the doors, and crash through the windows

And cover the earth, the earth, the earth, the earth

The earth, the earth, the earth

Bricks won't hold it in

Lies won't hold it down

Love will let it out

And we will let it drown

The darkness, the fears and brokenness

Can you feel it now?

Let it cover you

Let the Spirit rise up, let it break through the walls

And beat down the doors, and crash through the windows

And cover the earth, the earth, the earth, the earth

Let the Spirit rise up, let it break through the walls

And beat down the doors, and crash through the windows

And cover the earth, the earth, the earth, the earth

Fear has no choice but to bow

Chains have no choice but to break

Shame has no choice but to leave

In Your presence

Fear has no choice but to bow

Chains have no choice but to break

Shame has no choice but to leave

In Your presence

Fear has no choice but to bow

Chains have no choice but to break

Shame has no choice but to leave

In Your presence

Fear has no choice but to bow

Chains have no choice but to break

Shame has no choice but to leave

In Your presence

So let the Spirit rise up, let it break through the walls

And beat down the doors, and crash through the windows

And cover the earth, the earth, the earth, the earth

Let the Spirit rise up, let it break through the walls

And beat down the doors, and crash through the windows

And cover the earth, the earth, the earth, the earth


Tremble

Peace, bringing it all to peace

The storm surrounding me

Let it break at Your name

Still, call the sea to still

The rage in me to still

Every wave at Your name

Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble

Jesus, Jesus, You silence fear

Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble

Jesus, Jesus

Breathe, then call these bones to live

Call these lungs to sing

Once again, I will praise

Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble

Jesus, Jesus, You silence fear

Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble

Jesus, Jesus

Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble

Jesus, Jesus, You silence fear

Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble

Jesus, Jesus

Your name is a light that the shadows can't deny

Your name cannot be overcome

Your name is alive forever lifted high

Your name cannot be overcome

Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble

Jesus, Jesus, You silence fear

Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble

Jesus, Jesus

Jesus, Jesus

Jesus, Jesus

Your name is a light that the shadows can't deny

Your name cannot be overcome

Your name is alive forever lifted high

Your name cannot be overcome

Your name is a light that the shadows can't deny

Your name cannot be overcome

Your name is alive forever lifted high

Your name cannot be overcome

Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble

Jesus, Jesus, You silence fear

Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble

Jesus, Jesus
