All Glory Be to Christ

Psalm 130 (From the Depths of Woe)

Grace Alone

I Am One of Those

Liturgy

Call to Worship

Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. – Philippians 2:5-11

Corporate Confession

Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD! O Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my pleas for mercy! If you, O LORD, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? But with you there is forgiveness, that you may be feared. I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord, more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning. – Psalm 130:1-6

Assurance of Pardon

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. – Ephesians 2:4-10

Benediction

Now may God bless you and keep you, and make his face to shine upon you and give you peace, as you sow to the Spirit through your burden-bearing, your teaching, your learning, and your holding one another accountable. May the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit make you one, even as they are one, to the glory of our Triune God and for your joy. Amen.

Call to Worship

My heart is steadfast, O God! I will sing and make melody with all my being! Awake, O harp and lyre! I will awake the dawn! I will give thanks to you, O LORD, among the peoples; I will sing praises to you among the nations. For your steadfast love is great above the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the clouds. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let your glory be over all the earth! That your beloved ones may be delivered, give salvation by your right hand and answer me! – Psalm 108:1-6

Corporate Confession

Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud; be gracious to me and answer me! You have said, “Seek my face. My heart says to you, “Your face, Lord, do I seek.” Hide not your face from me. Turn not your servant away in anger, O you who have been my help. Cast me not off; forsake me not, O God of my salvation! – Psalm 27:7-8

Assurance of Pardon

And every priest stands daily at his service, offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, waiting from that time until his enemies should be made a footstool for his feet. For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified. – Hebrews 10:11-14

Benediction

Now may God bless you and keep you, and make his face to shine upon on and give you peace and assurance of the fact that you belong to Christ and the flesh has been crucified. May you flee from the works of the flesh, and may the Spirit produce in you his fruit, to your joy, and to the glory of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Call to Worship

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” – Revelation 21:1-4

Corporate Confession

Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man against whom the LORD counts no iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit. For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer. I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not cover my iniquity; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the LORD,” and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. – Psalm 32:1-5

Assurance of Pardon

For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die—but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation. – Romans 5:6-11

Benediction

Brothers and sisters, as you, through the Spirit, by faith, eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness, remember that it is for freedom that Christ has set you free. May God bless you and keep you, as you stand firm and stubbornly refuse to submit again to a yoke of slavery, for your joy, and the glory of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Spirit. Amen.

 

O Lord, How Long? (Lyrics)

O Lord, how long will the wicked exult?
O Lord, how long will they prosper and boast?
When the pain of the innocent
Serves the lusts of evil men,
How long, how long?

O Lord, how long must we live in agony?
Our bodies ache, do you see our suffering?
Do you hear us when we cry,
When our day has turned to night?
How long, how long?

O Lord, how long must we go on childless?
O Lord, how long must we drown in grief for death?
If you give and take away,
Can’t our sons and daughters stay?
How long, how long?

O Lord, how long must we wrestle with our sin?
Disordered loves that we don’t want and we resent
When temptation wins again
And our spirits grieve within
How long, how long?

Oh Lord, how long till our faith is turned to sight,
Til you kneel down to wipe the tears off from our eyes?
When our loving Father says,
“Well done. Now, enter rest,”
How long?
When the sun is God the Son
And his blood-bought Bride will come,
How long?
When the Spirit brings us up
And we’re swallowed by Triune love
How long, how long?

The earth is the LORD’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein, for he has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the rivers… Lift up your heads, O gates! And be lifted up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is the King of glory? The LORD, strong and mighty, the LORD, mighty in battle! Lift up your heads, O gates! And lift them up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is the King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the king of glory! – Psalm 24:1-2, 7-10

Corporate Confession

Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. The troubles of my heart are enlarged; bring me out of my distresses. Consider my affliction and my trouble, and forgive all my sins. Oh guard my soul, and deliver me! Let me not be put to shame, for I take refuge in you. – Psalm 25:16-20

Assurance of Pardon

May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. – Colossians 1:11-14

Call to Worship

This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it. Again today we come together to worship— the God of creation, of salvation, of time and eternity; the God of all peoples, of all nations, of all conditions of people everywhere. Praise the Lord. All that is within me, Praise God’s holy name. Praise the Lord and remember all his kindnesses: in forgiving our sins; in curing our diseases; in saving us from destruction; in surrounding us with love. The Lord is full of mercy and compassion. The Lord is slow to anger and willing to give us gifts of love. Praise the Lord! Oh, all that is within me, praise the Lord. —based on Psalm 103:1-8; 118:24

Corporate Confession

Father, we are sorry for the many times we have left you and chosen to satisfy our own selfish desires. For the times we have hurt the members of our families by refusing to do our share of the family tasks. Father, we have sinned. Forgive us. For the times we were unkind and impatient with those who needed our time and concern. Father, we have sinned. Forgive us. For the times we were too weak to stand up for what was right and allowed others to suffer because of our cowardice. Father, we have sinned. Forgive us. For the times we refused to forgive others. Father, we have sinned. Forgive us.

Assurance of Pardon

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls. ––1 Peter 1:3-9

Benediction

Finally, brothers, rejoice. Aim for restoration, comfort one another, agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you. Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the saints greet you. The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.–––2 Corinthians 13:13-14

Call to Worship

I will bless the LORD at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul makes its boast in the LORD; let the humble hear and be glad. Oh, magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together! I sought the LORD, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed. This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him and saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them. Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him! Oh, fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him have no lack! The young lions suffer want and hunger; but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all. The LORD redeems the life of his servants; none of those who take refuge in him will be condemned. – Psalm 34:1-10, 19, 22

Corporate Confession

I will bear the indignation of the LORD because I have sinned against him, until he pleads my cause and executes judgment for me. He will bring me out to the light; I shall look upon his vindication. – Micah 7:9

Assurance of Pardon

Who is a God like you, pardoning iniquity for the remnant of his inheritance? He does not retain his anger forever, because he delights in steadfast love. He will again have compassion on us; he will tread our iniquities underfoot. You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea. – Micah 7:18-19

Benediction

Now may God the Father—who sent his Son to be born of woman, born under the law, to redeem you from the law and purchase your adoption—and God the Son—who was sent by the Father, who died and rose again, and who ascended on high to give you his Spirit—and God the Holy Spirit—who is poured out into your hearts, and who enables you to cry, “Abba! Father!”—hold you fast and encourage you this day and throughout the week. May you rest in this Triune God’s unrelenting love for you as you live faithfully where he has called you. Amen.

 

Hail Sacred Union (Lyrics)

Between Jesus and the chosen race
Subsists a bond of sovereign grace
That hell, with its infernal doom 
Shall never dissolve or rend in two
This sacred bond, shall never break
Though earth should to her center shake
Rest doubting saint assured of this
For God has pledged his holiness
He swore but once the deed was done;
‘Twas settled by the great Three in One
Christ was appointed to redeem

All that the Father loved in Him
Hail, sacred union, firm and strong
How great thy grace, how sweet the song
That rebel worms should ever be
One with incarnate Deity
One in the tomb, one when he rose
One when he triumphed over his foes
One while in heaven he took his seat
While seraphs sung at hell’s defeat
Blessed by the wisdom and the grace
The eternal love and faithfulness
That’s in the gospel scheme revealed
And is by God his Spirit sealed
