A God Who Covenants With Us

Series: Exodus: The God Who Is

A God Who Covenants With Us

November 08, 2020 | Mike Stancak

Passage: Exodus

There are certain kinds of relationships that can't happen casually. You don't partner in real estate investment over a hand shake and well wishes. We don't (shouldn't) commit to the union of man and woman the way we commit to binge watching a Netflix show. These relationships require more of us. They happen in the context of promises and contracts, protections and agreements. In the same way, as God brings humans into relationship with him, he does it through the same means, in this case, the covenant. This week the covenant ceremony for God's people is completed and we see how this covenant is about far more than just Israel but is about the salvation of the world.

Deuteronomy 6:4-5, Leviticus 19:18

Leader: Lift up your hearts

Congregation: Our hearts are lifted up to the Lord


Almighty and most merciful Father,

we have erred and strayed from your ways like lost sheep.

We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts.

We have offended against your holy laws.

We have left undone those things which we ought to have done,

and we have done those things which we ought not to have done;

and apart from your grace, there is no health in us.

O Lord, have mercy upon us.

Spare all those who confess their faults.

Restore all those who are penitent, according to your promises declared to all people in Christ Jesus our Lord.

And grant, O most merciful Father, for his sake,

that we may now live a godly, righteous, and sober life,

to the glory of your holy Name. Amen.


Hebrews 12:1-2


I believe in God, the Father almighty,

      creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,

   who was conceived by the Holy Spirit

   And born of the virgin Mary.

   He suffered under Pontius Pilate,

   was crucified, died, and was buried;

   he descended to the dead.

   On the third day he rose again.

   He ascended into heaven

   and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

   He is coming again to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

   the holy catholic* church,

   the communion of saints,

   the forgiveness of sins,

   the resurrection of the body,

   and the life everlasting. Amen.

Open The Eyes of My Heart

Verse 1 

Open the eyes of my heart Lord

Open the eyes of my heart

I want to see you

I want to see you


To see you high and lifted up

Shining in the light of your glory

Pour out your power and love

As we sing holy holy holy


Holy Holy Holy

Holy Holy Holy

Holy Holy Holy 

We want to see you

This Is Amazing Grace
Phil Wickham

Verse 1 

Who breaks the power of sin and darkness 

Whose love is mighty and so much stronger 

The King of Glory the King above all kings 

Verse 2

Who shakes the whole earth with holy thunder 

Who leaves us breathless in awe and wonder 

The King of Glory the King above all kings 


This is amazing grace 

This is unfailing love 

That You would take my place 

That You would bear my cross 

You laid down Your life 

That I would be set free 

Oh Jesus I sing for all that You've done for me 

Verse 3

Who brings our chaos back into order 

Who makes the orphan a son and daughter

The King of Glory the King of Glory 

Verse 4

Who rules the nations with truth and justice 

Shines like the sun in all of its brilliance 

The King of Glory the King above all kings


Worthy is the Lamb who was slain 

Worthy is the King who conquered the grave 

Jesus Paid It All
Traditional Hymn

Verse 1 

I hear the Savior say, 

thy strength indeed is small 

Child of weakness, watch and pray, 

find in me thine all in all 

Verse 2 

Lord, now indeed I find

thy power and thine alone

Can change the leper's spots

and melt the heart of stone 


Jesus paid it all All to Him I owe 

Sin had left a crimson stain 

He washed it white as snow

Verse 3

And when before the throne 

I stand in him complete 

Jesus died my soul to save

my lips shall still repeat 


O praise the one who paid my debt

and raised this life up from the dead 


Exodus 24:3-11

Leader: This is the Word of the Lord!

Congregation: Thanks be to God!



Promises by Maverick City Music

Verse 1 

God of Abraham God of covenant 

and of faithful promises 

Time and time again You have proven 

You’ll do just what you said 


Though the storms may come

and the winds may blow 

I’ll remain steadfast

And let my heart learn 

when you speak a word 

It will come to pass 


Great is your faithfulness to me 

Great is your faithfulness to me 

From the rising sun, to the setting same 

I will praise your name 

Great is your faithfulness to me 

Verse 2 

God from age to age

though the earth may pass away

Your word remains the same

Your history can prove 

there’s nothing You can’t do 

You’re faithful and True 


I put my faith in Jesus 

My anchor to the ground 

My hope and firm foundation 

He’ll never let me down 

Father You Are All We Need
Dustin Kensrue

Verse 1 

Our father who in heaven reigns How Great and mighty is your name Your kingdom come Your will be done Now here on earth as is above 

Verse 2 

O give to us our daily bread And keep our hungry spirits fed May all our satisfaction be In you whose grace has set us free 


Give us hope give us faith 

Help us trust in your guidance 

From the depths of Your grace 

You have richly provided 

Thank you thank you 

Father you are all we need 

Father you are all we need 

Verse 3 

Forgive us all our trespasses 

As we forgive when sinned against 

Though evil seeks to hide your face 

We fix our eyes on you by faith 


We lift you high above all names 

Your kingdom will forever reign 

To you the glory and the power forevermore

by Elevation Worship

Verse 1 

The head that once was crowned

with thorns Is crowned with glory now 

The Savior knelt to wash our feet 

Now at his feet we bow 

Verse 2 

The one who wore our sin and shame 

Now robed in majesty 

The radiance of perfect love 

Now shines for all to see 


Your name, Your name is victory 

All praise will rise To Christ our king 


The fear that held us now gives way 

To him who is our peace 

His final breath upon the cross

Is now alive in me 


By Your Spirit I will rise 

From the ashes of defeat 

The resurrected king is resurrecting me

In Your Name I come alive 

To declare Your victory 

The resurrected king is resurrecting me 


The tomb where soldiers watched in vain

Was borrowed for three days 

His body there would not remain 

Our God has robbed the grave 

Our God has robbed the grave 


Praise God from whom all blessings flow

Praise Him all creatures here below

Praise him above ye heavenly hosts

Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
