Opening Prayer: Almighty God, Thank you for your Word. May the transforming power of your Word be at work in my life today and always. In the name of Jesus my Lord, Amen.

Read: Philippians 2:12-3:11

Prayer: for the church, for others, and for myself

Hymn: “Crown Him with Many Crowns”
Crown Him with many crowns,
The Lamb upon His throne.
Hark! how the heav’nly anthem drowns
All music but its own!
Awake, my soul, and sing
Of him who died for thee,
And hail Him as thy matchless King
Through all eternity.

Crown Him the Lord of Love!
Behold His hands and side-
Rich wounds, yet visible above,
In beauty glorified.
No angel in the sky
Can fully bear that sight,
But downward bens his wondering eyes
At mysteries so bright.

Crown Him the Lord of Life!
Who triumphed o’er the grave;
Who rose victorious to the strive
For those He came to save.
His glories now we sing
Who died and rose on high,
Who died eternal life to bring,
And lives that death may die.

Crown Him the Lord of Heav’n!
One with the Father known,
One with the Spirit thro’ Him giv’n
From yonder glorious throne.
To Thee be endless praise,
For Thou for us hast died.
Be Thou, O Lord, thro’ endless days
Adored and magnified!

Closing Prayer: The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen (Phil. 4:23)
