Twila Paris’ Lamb Of God has been a favourite that I don’t use very often, which is why it hasn’t featured on Sunday Songs before.
I’ve always found the lyrics in the verses so well written.

The lyrics:
1
Your only Son no sin to hide
But You have sent Him from Your side
To walk upon this guilty sod
And to become the Lamb of God
2
Your gift of love they crucified
They laughed and scorned Him as he died
The humble King they named a fraud
And sacrificed the Lamb of God
Chorus
Oh Lamb of God, Sweet lamb of God
I love the Holy Lamb of God
Oh wash me in His precious Blood
My Jesus Christ the Lamb of God
3
I was so lost I should have died
But You have brought me to Your side
To be led by Your staff and rod
And to be called a lamb of God
Chorus
Oh Lamb of God, Sweet lamb of God
I love the Holy Lamb of God
Oh wash me in His precious Blood
My Jesus Christ the Lamb of God
Oh wash me in His precious Blood
My Jesus Christ the Lamb of God

Westminster Larger Catechism – Lord’s Day 38

Q & A 153
Q What does God require of us, that we may escape his wrath and curse due to us by reason of the transgression of the law?
A That we may escape the wrath and curse of God due to us by reason of the transgression of the law, he requires of us repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ, and the diligent use of the outward means whereby Christ communicates to us the benefits of his mediation.

Q & A 154
Q What are the outward means whereby Christ communicates to us the benefits of his mediation?
A The outward and ordinary means whereby Christ communicates to his church the benefits of his mediation, are all his ordinances; especially the Word, sacraments, and prayer; all which are made effectual to the elect for their salvation.

Our current sermon series in 2 Kings concludes with ‘Grace Greater Than All Our Sin’ where the failing and fading foolishness of faithlessness is contrasted with the gracious and perpetual character of God.

For those unable to join us at MGPC, the service will be live-streamed.

So, NRL stayed with 75% even in the finals. I don’t think Penrith are done by any means, though they’re probably happiest that they’re facing Paramatta. Easts have done amazingly to get this far and have a side on the field. Manly won’t be taking anything at all for granted; as well they shouldn’t.
The AFL are having a weekend off. It was a little odd that in a season where the top five teams or so seemed to be there and there abouts with each other that the two of the last four should be despatched so definitively. I think the extra week probably helps the Bulldogs more than Melbourne. Melbourne have two weeks to dwell on overwhelming favouritism in a game that none of them have played in, with the weight of history and expectation squarely on their shoulders. Hopefully (really, really) everyone stays well.

(Draws count as correct)
NRL (last round 3/4; season tally 142/196)
Manly
Penrith

AFL (last round 1/2; season tally 124/206)
