Hope Community produces a weekly podcast to complement our Sunday gathering in the Northside Center. Listen in, sing along, pray together, reflect on what you hear and then send us your questions or comments.

We return to our study of the New Testament Letter to Rome with an analysis of the apostle Paul's message to followers of Christ, challenging them to offer their bodies as a living sacrifice. We define sacrifice with stories and textual analysis, and then explain the conundrum of making oneself a "living" sacrifice.

O come, O come Emanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear
Rejoice! Rejoice!
Shall come to thee, O Israel

O come Thou Rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satan's tyranny
From depths of hell Thy people save
And give us victory o'er the grave
Rejoice! Rejoice!
Shall come to thee, O Israel

He has come, He has come
He has come, He has come
He has come, He has come
Rejoice! Rejoice!
Shall come to thee, O Israel

Lord's Prayer

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever

Come Thou Fount / Hallelujah

Come Thou Fount of every blessing
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace
Streams of mercy, never ceasing
Call for songs of loudest praise
Teach me some melodious sonnet
Sung by flaming tongues above
Praise the Mount, I'm fixed upon it
Mount of God's redeeming love

Jesus sought me when a stranger
Wandering from the fold of God
He to rescue me from danger
Interposed His precious blood
How His kindness yet pursues me
Mortal tongue can never tell
Clothed in flesh till death shall loose me
I cannot proclaim it well

O, to grace how great a debtor
Daily I'm constrained to be
Let Thy goodness like a fetter
Bind my wandering heart to Thee
Prone to wander, Lord I feel it
Prone to leave the God I love
Here's my heart, O take and seal it
Seal it for Thy courts above

Hallelujah! He has saved me
Hallelujah! He has come
Hallelujah! It is finished
O, the victory has been won

O, awaken all Thee children
Hear the call of Father's love
This salvation not for keeping
But to share and to award
A generation You desire
Bringing Jesus to the lost
No other worthy cause we cling to
Than the one shone on the cross
