Faithful Lord, whose steadfast love never ceases and whose mercies never come to an end:   grant us the grace to trust you and to receive the gifts of your love, new every morning in Jesus Christ our Lord.   Amen.

You, O Lord:

are the ground of our being.

 

In your prayers this week could you pray for our five overseas partner Dioceses especially today the Diocese of Karnataka Central and for Churches Together, St. Cyr’s, Stinchcombe.

 

Post Communion

Holy and blessed God, you have fed us with the body and blood of your Son and filled us with your Holy Spirit: may we honour you, not only with our lips but in lives dedicated to the service of Jesus Christ our Lord.   Amen.

First Reading – 1 Thessalonians v1-10

 

1Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy, To the church of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace.

2We always give thanks to God for all of you and mention you in our prayers,

constantly 3remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.   4For we know, brothers and sisters beloved by God, that he has chosen you, 5because our message of the gospel came to you not in word only, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction; just as you know what kind of persons we proved to be among you for your sake.   6And you became imitators of us and of the Lord, for in spite of persecution you received the word with joy inspired by the Holy Spirit, 7so that you became an example to all the believers in Macedonia and in Achaia.   8For the word of the Lord has sounded forth from you not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but in every place your faith in God has become known, so that we have no need to speak about it.   9For the people of those regions report about us what kind of welcome we had among you, and how you turned to God from idols, to serve a living and true God, 10and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead—Jesus, who rescues us from the wrath that is coming.

 

 

Gospel Reading – Matthew 22 v15-22

 

15Then the Pharisees went and plotted to entrap him in what he said.   16So they sent their disciples to him, along with the Herodians, saying, “Teacher, we know that you are sincere, and teach the way of God in accordance with truth, and show deference to no one; for you do not regard people with partiality.   17Tell us, then, what you think.   Is it lawful to pay taxes to the emperor, or not?”   18But Jesus, aware of their malice, said, “Why are you putting me to the test, you hypocrites?   19Show me the coin used for the tax.”   And they brought him a denarius.   20Then he said to them, “Whose head is this, and whose title?”   21They answered, “The emperor’s.”   Then he said to them, “Give therefore to the emperor the things that are the emperor’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”   22When they heard this, they were amazed; and they left him and went away.

All my hope on God is founded

 

All my hope on God is founded;

he doth still my trust renew.

Me through change and chance he guideth,

only good and only true.

God unknown, he alone

calls my heart to be his own.

 

Human pride and earthly glory,

sword and crown betray his trust;

what with care and toil he buildeth,

tow’r and temple, fall to dust.

But God’s pow’r, hour by hour,

is my temple and my tow’r.

 

God’s great goodness aye endureth,

deep his wisdom, passing thought:

splendour, light and life attend him,

beauty springeth out of naught.

Evermore, from his store,

new-born worlds rise and adore.

 

Still from earth to God eternal

sacrifice of praise be done,

high above all praises praising

for the gift of Christ his Son.

Christ doth call one and all:

ye who follow shall not fall.

 

 

 

 

Rejoice the Lord is King

 

Rejoice the Lord is King!

Your Lord and King adore;

mortals, give thanks and sing,

and triumph evermore.

 

Life up your heart, lift up your voice;

rejoice, again I say, rejoice.

 

Jesus the Saviour reigns,

the God of truth and love;

when he had purged our stains,

he took his seat above.

 

His kingdom cannot fail;

he rules o’er earth and heav’n;

the keys of death and hell

are to our Jesus giv’n.

 

He sits at God’s right hand

till all his foes submit,

and bow to his command,

and fall beneath his feet.

Ye Holy Angels Bright

 

Ye holy angels bright,

who wait at God’s right hand,

or through the realms of light

fly at your Lord’s command,

assist our song,

for else the theme

too high doth seem

for mortal tongue.

 

Ye blessed souls at rest,

who ran this earthly race,

and now, from sin released,

behold the Saviour’s face,

God’s praises sound,

as in his sight

with sweet delight

ye do abound.

 

Ye saints, who toil below,

adore your heav’nly King,

and onward as ye go

some joyful anthem sing;

take what he gives

and praise him still,

through good or ill,

who ever lives.

 

My soul, bear thou thy part,

triumph in God above:

and with a well-tuned heart

sing thou the songs of love;

let all thy days

till life shall end,

whate’er he send,

be filled with praise.
