Advent and Christmas

Christians are to take part in the transformation of the world.  We cannot and should not escape from the world.  Christ did not pray for us to be taken of this world but to be kept from the evil one.

Isa 62:1 For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth.

KAAYUSAN NGA PAGSAMBA

AWIT NG PAGPUPURI                      “Maligayang Sinasamba”             MASP # 285
                                                   (“Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee”)

 Maligayang sinasamba aming Dios ng pagsinta,
Ang bulaklak ang kagaya na hamog ang pag-asa
Tunawin ang madlang sala at lahat ng pangamba,
Tagabigay ng ligaya kami’y punuin Mo na.

 Naliligid ka ng galak, sinag Mo’y namamarak,
Sa palibot Mong marilag ay nagpupuring lahat/Bundok,
parang, gilid, gubat, bulaklakan at dagat,
Maging awit at lagaslas puri sa ‘yo ang saad

 Nagpapatawad Kang tunay at laging mapagbigay,
Batis ng t’wang pamumuhay at nang kapahingahan
Ikaw’y Amang mapagmahal, kapatid pang karamay,
Sa pag-ibig ay turuang may kagalakang banal

Kami’y samahan sa awit na nanggaling sa langit,
Pagharian ng pag-ibig madlang magkakapatid
Sa paglakad ay ihimig, tagumpay sa ligalig,
Sa t’wa’t mapagwaging tinig, samahan sa pag-awit.   Amen.

TAWAG SA PAGSISISI                

Patnugot – Sa maraming pagkakataon, tayo ay nagkakasala sa Panginoon dahil sa mga gawain nating hindi naayon sa Kanyang katuruan. Lalo kung ang ating paglilingkod ay nakatuon sa pansariling kapakanan, at hindi sa kung ano ang ikakalugod ng Diyos, lahat tayo ay nagkakasala. Sa pagkakataon na ito ating saliksikin ng mabuti ang ating mga sarili, pagbuluyan ang Kanyang mga Salita para mas makita natin ang nais Niyang ipagawa sa atin, bilang indibidwal at bilang isang Iglesia. Suriin ang sarili sa pamamagitan ng taimtim na panalangin at paghiling ng kapatawaran na mayroong pagpapakumba.

MATAHIMIK NA PAGSUSURI SA SARILI                  (sa saliw ng musika)

 SALITA NG KAPATAWARAN              

Pastor – Mga kapatid sang-ayon sa Banal na Kasulatan “ang lahat ng tumanggap sa Kanya na sumasampalataya sa Kanyang pangalan ay pinagkalooban ng karapatan na maging mga anak ng Diyos” (Juan 1:12). Sa ganitong mabuting balita, pinatawad na tayo ng Panginoon, at sa pamamagitan ng Kanyang biyayang kaloob, patuloy tayo nitong binabago. Pasalamatan natin Siya, sa pamamagitan ng ating paglilingkod. Amen.

 Tugong Awit:                                    Itinaas Ako Ng Pag-ibig

Sa aking kinalalagyan Dagat ng kasama’n
halos di na makuhang,  umahon sa pangpang

Nguni’t ang Panginoon, sa aking pagtaghoy,
ay Siya ang nag-ahon at umapon.

 Koro:
Itinaas ng pag-ibig nang walang sumagip, tinangkilik
Itinaas ng pag-ibig nang walang sumagip, tinangkilik, tinangkilik.

Ito ang karapat-dapat na pagsamba ninyo sa Diyos (Roma 12:1), at gayun din ialay natin ang bahagi ng ating tinatangkilik bilang panustos sa mga ministeryo ng Kanyang Iglesia. Halina’t maghandog sa Panginoon ng may kasiyahan sa ating puso.

IMNO NG PAGTATALAGA      Sa Tana’y may Balitang Mainam (MASP 278)

 Sa tana’y may balitang mainam, upang puso’y liwanagan;
Buhay at katotohanan, kapayapaa’t ilaw, kapayapaa’t ilaw.

 Koro:
Ang dilim ay nagliliwanag, at sa lupa’y itatag
Ni Kristo ang kaharian ng pag-ibig at liwanag

Mayroong awit na aawitin, Pus okay Kristo ay dalhin;
Sa kasamaa’y pangsupil dudurog sa patalim, dudurog sa patalim.

 Sa kalahatan ay may balita, na Hari, sa itaas;
Sinugong Anak ng liyag, upang tayo’y iligtas, upang tayo’y iligtas.

 Nagligtas ay ipakilala, hirap ang dinanas Niya;
Ang kahirapa’y tinahak lahat ay ng maligtas, lahat ay nangmaligtas
