God is Love

First United Presbyterian Church “God is Love” Rev. Amy Morgan April 29, 2018 Listen to audio Psalm 22:25-31 25 From you comes my praise in the great congregation; my vows I will pay before those who fear him.  26 The poor shall eat and be satisfied; those who seek him shall praise the LORD. May your hearts live forever!  27 All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the LORD; and all the families of the nations shall worship before him.  28 For dominion belongs to the LORD, and he rules over the nations.  29 To him, indeed, shall all who sleep in the earth bow down; before him shall bow all who go down to the dust, and I shall live for him.  30 Posterity will serve him; future generations will be told about the Lord,  31 and proclaim his deliverance to a people yet unborn, saying that he has done it. 1 John 4:7-21 7 Beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.  8 Whoeve

The Meeting

First United Presbyterian Church “The Meeting” Rev. Amy Morgan April 22, 2018 Listen to audio Psalm 23 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want.  2 He makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters;  3 he restores my soul. He leads me in right paths for his name's sake.  4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff-- they comfort me.  5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.  6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD my whole life long. 1 John 3:16-24 We know love by this, that he laid down his life for us-- and we ought to lay down our lives for one another.  17 How does God's love abide in anyone who has the world's goods and sees a brother or sister in need and yet refuses help?  18 Little children, let us lov

Children of God

First United Presbyterian Church “Children of God” Rev. Amy Morgan April 15, 2018 Listen to audio Psalm 4 Answer me when I call, O God of my right! You gave me room when I was in distress. Be gracious to me, and hear my prayer.  2 How long, you people, shall my honor suffer shame? How long will you love vain words, and seek after lies? Selah  3 But know that the LORD has set apart the faithful for himself; the LORD hears when I call to him.  4 When you are disturbed, do not sin; ponder it on your beds, and be silent. Selah  5 Offer right sacrifices, and put your trust in the LORD.  6 There are many who say, "O that we might see some good! Let the light of your face shine on us, O LORD!"  7 You have put gladness in my heart more than when their grain and wine abound.  8 I will both lie down and sleep in peace; for you alone, O LORD, make me lie down in safety. 1 John 3:1-7 See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called chil

Miracle Grow

First United Presbyterian Church “Miracle Grow” Rev. Amy Morgan April 8, 2018 Listen to audio Psalm 133 How very good and pleasant it is when kindred live together in unity!  2 It is like the precious oil on the head, running down upon the beard, on the beard of Aaron, running down over the collar of his robes.  3 It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion. For there the LORD ordained his blessing, life forevermore. 1 John 1:1-2:2 We declare to you what was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the word of life--  2 this life was revealed, and we have seen it and testify to it, and declare to you the eternal life that was with the Father and was revealed to us--  3 we declare to you what we have seen and heard so that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ.  4
