Music Lyrics

Come, Now is the Time to Worship
Come now is the time to worship, come now is the time to give your heart
Come just as you are to worship, come just as you are before your God, come

One day every tongue will confess You are God, one day every knee will bow
Still the greatest treasure remains for those who gladly choose You now

Come now is the time to worship, come now is the time to give your heart
Come just as you are to worship, come just as you are before your God, come

One day every tongue will confess You are God, one day every knee will bow
Still the greatest treasure remains for those who gladly choose You now

Come just as you are come, come just as you are come, come

 Ephesians 1:18 says this:
“Open the eyes of their hearts, and let the light of Your truth flood in. Shine Your light on the hope You are calling them to embrace. Reveal to them the glorious riches You are preparing as their inheritance.”

Open the Eyes of My Heart, Lord
Open the eyes of my heart Lord, open the eyes of my heart
I want to see You, I want to see You

Open the eyes of my heart Lord, open the eyes of my heart
I want to see You, I want to see You

To see You high and lifted up – shining in the light of Your glory
Pour out Your power and love as we sing holy, holy, holy

Holy, holy, holy – holy, holy, holy – holy, holy, holy – I want to see You

Open Our Eyes, Lord
Open our eyes Lord, we want to see Jesus
To reach out and touch Him and say that we love Him
Open our ears Lord, and help us to listen
Open our eyes Lord, we want to see Jesus

In Moments Like These
In moments like these I sing out a song – I sing out a love song to Jesus
In moments like these I lift up my hands – I lift up my hands to the Lord

Singing I love You Lord, singing I love You Lord
Singing I love You Lord, I love You

 I Will Serve Thee
I will serve Thee because I love Thee, You have given life to me
I was nothing before You found me, You have given life to me

Heartaches, broken pieces, ruined lives are why You died on Calv’ry
Your touch was what I longed for You have given life to me

Sermon Notes

The Blessings of Sight and Hearing
Matt 13:10-17, 34-35
9/20/20
Pastor Todd Slade

  1. Introduction: Things we take for granted
  2. Matthew 13:10–17, “Then the disciples came and said to him, “Why do you speak to them in parables?” And he answered them, “To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For to the one who has, more will be given, and he will have an abundance, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. This is why I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand. Indeed, in their case the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled that says: “‘“You will indeed hear but never understand, and you will indeed see but never perceive.” For this people’s heart has grown dull, and with their ears they can barely hear, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their heart and turn, and I would heal them. But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear. For truly, I say to you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.”
  3. 4 Reasons parables are effective
         a. concrete truth
         b. portable truth
         c. interesting truth
         d. discoverable truth
  4. He who has ears, let him hear
