Call to Worship

Ascribe to the LORD, O families of the peoples, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength! Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; bring an offering and come before him! Worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness; tremble before him, all the earth; yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved. Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice, and let them say among the nations, “The LORD reigns!” Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever! – 1 Chronicles 16:28–31, 34

Corporate Confession

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 32:5

Assurance of Pardon

And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him,  if indeed you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, became a minister. – Colossians 1:21–23

Benediction

Believe in the words of the Lord brothers, sisters. May the spirit of the living God help your unbelief in times of great distress, remembering that you can take the Almighty God at his word.

Call to Worship

gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. The Lord is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made. All your works shall give thanks to you, O Lord, and your saints shall bless your name. Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures throughout all generations. The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord and let all flesh bless his holy name forever and ever. – Psalm 145:3, 8-13, 18, 21

Corporate Confession

“But he gives more grace. Therefore, it says, God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands you sinners and purify your hearts you double-minded.” – James 4:8

Assurance of Pardon

Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering for he who promised is faithful. – Hebrews 10:19-23

Benediction

Brothers and sisters may your hearts be strengthened in the joy of your salvation this week. May your good works be compelled by the love of Christ and may the grace of God be your refuge.

How Deep the Father’s Love for Us

Liturgy

Call to Worship

I will sing to the LORD, for he has triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider he has thrown into the sea. The LORD is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation; this is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him. The LORD is a man of war; the LORD is his name… Who is like you, O LORD, among the gods? Who is like you, majestic in holiness, awesome in glorious deeds, doing wonders?… You will bring [your people] in and plant them on your own mountain, the place, O LORD, which you have made for your abode; the sanctuary, O Lord, which your hands have established. The LORD will reign forever and ever. – Exodus 15:1b-3, 11, 17-18

Corporate Confession

Remember your mercy, O LORD, and your steadfast love, for they have been from of old. Remember not the sins of my youth or my transgressions; according to your steadfast love remember me, for the sake of your goodness, O LORD! Good and upright is the LORD; therefore he instructs sinners in the way. He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble his way. All the paths of the LORD are steadfast love and faithfulness, for those who keep his covenant and his testimonies. For your name’s sake, O LORD, pardon my guilt, for it is great. – Psalm 25:6-11

Assurance of Pardon

Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. 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 5:1-11

Benediciton

May our Triune God bless you and keep you and make his face to shine upon you and give you peace. As John the Baptist, may you be filled with joy to see your Lord Jesus Christ—who was sent from the Father to secure your eternal life, and who gives you the Spirit without measure—increase, as you decrease. May the glory of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit be your chief delight, this week and forever. Amen.
