At The Word Unleashed,

our prayer is that the power of God’s Word

will be unleashed in your life.

HEBREWS 4:12

FROM TOM PENNINGTON

Our chief assignment as preachers of the Word of God is to be faithful with the “mysteries of God” revealed in the Word of God. Church leaders have many responsibilities in Christ’s church, but our chief duty, our primary task, is to feed His sheep! We must first be faithful stewards of the Word of God and the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Part 6

Those who teach false systems of religion and enslave others in them receive the most extreme condemnation from our Lord Jesus Christ.

Part 5

Legalism and human tradition ultimately lead to the view that salvation can only be received through works and human righteousness.

Part 4

First-century Judaism had become completely worthless because the religious leaders had truly abandoned the authoritative Word of God.

Part 3

The Pharisees were the superficially religious leaders of the day. In fact, Jesus called them hypocrites because they were pretending to be something they were not.

Part 2

Christians must be careful not to distort or twist the meaning of Scripture—that is exactly what happened with the Pharisees of the first century.

HYMNS

Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

COLOSSIANS 3:16

OUR SOVEREIGN GOD

Verse 1

Our Sovereign God by His own word

Sustains this world and reigns as Lord.

No angel, demon, sinful man can change

His course, restrain His hand.

O sovereign God, we praise Your pow’r;

Your wisdom, goodness we adore!

We bow our hearts before Your throne;

Help us, O Lord, to trust You more,

Help us, O Lord, to trust You more.

Verse 2

When the fullness of the time had come,

God sent His own Beloved Son.

To keep God’s law, live in our place,

To bear our sin, guilt and disgrace.

Dead in our sin, estranged from God,

We fled as rebels from His love.

In sovereign grace He made us sons,

And saved us from the wrath to come,

And saved us from the wrath to come.

Verse 3

Before our birth He planned our days,

Laid out our course, ordained our ways.

The moments of our lives He weaves

So all the glory He receives.

To those He loved before all time,

To all He called, and grace renewed,

He cannot lie; His word is true,

He makes all things to work for good,

He makes all things to work for good.

Verse 4

He has written history’s final page

His Son’s return will end this age.

The Lamb will come in glorious might,

Take back His world and end it’s night.

How deep the wisdom of our God,

Unknown, unfathomed are His ways.

None counsels Him or knows His mind.

We bow before Him all our days,

We bow before Him all our days

O sovereign God, we praise Your pow’r;

Your wisdom, goodness we adore!

We bow our hearts before Your throne;

Help us, O Lord, to trust You more,

Help us, O Lord, to trust You more.

OUR GOD HAS MAGNIFIED HIS WORD

Score | Parts | Lead Sheet

Verse 1

Our God has magnified His Word, just as He has His name,

Complete and holy, sure and true, eternally the same.

Until the earth shakes off its frame, the stars their courses stray,

The smallest letter, slightest stroke will never pass away!

Verse 2

God’s perfect truth in words expressed, the Spirit’s grand design.

Not only true in its great themes, but true in every line.

Though darkness reigns and men may rage, against the light conspire,

Still God is true in all in all His words and every man a liar!

Verse 3

The Word reveals God’s timeless plan, one great, eternal aim,

To save a people for His Son and glorify His name.

From every verse on every page, there is a road that leads

To heaven’s Lord and Calvary’s lamb, to Him who died for me!

Verse 4

Man’s wisdom and his glory fail, as grass they fade and die,

But God’s truth always will remain, “the saints and angels cry!

O Lord, we tremble at Your Word, and from our hearts believe.

Help us to guard, love and obey the treasure we received!

O Lord, we tremble at Your Word, and from our hearts believe.

Help us to guard, love and obey the treasure we received!
