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.

Liturgy

Call to Worship

Praise the Lord!

Praise the name of the Lord,

   give praise, O servants of the Lord,

who stand in the house of the Lord,

   in the courts of the house of our God!

Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good;

   sing to his name, for it is pleasant!

For I know that the Lord is great,

   and that our Lord is above all gods.

Your name, O Lord, endures forever,

   your renown, O Lord, throughout all ages.

For the Lord will vindicate his people

   and have compassion on his servants. – Psalm 135:1-3,13-14

Corporate Confession

Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy. – Proverbs 28:13

Assurance of Pardon

But the righteousness based on faith says, “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?'” (that is, to bring Christ down) “or ‘Who will descend into the abyss?'” (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead). But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in you’r heart” (that is, the word of faith that we proclaim); because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. – Romans 10:6-13

Benediction

Emmaus, may God’s love for your souls compel you to share that love with other. Let Gods’ love show forth in how you live, how you serve, and how you obey, to the furtherance of the gospel, and to the expansion of Gods kingdom.

Anchor Our Hearts (Lyrics)

VERSE 1:
Gracious God above, in Your boundless love
For the sake of Jesus, Your Son
Show us mercy, Lord, grace we can’t afford
For our sin has left us undone

And so we come, restless within
Tossed by the waves, blown by the wind
Now here we are, lost in our sin
Drifting so far, from where we began (where we began)

VERSE 2:
In our pain and grief, in our unbelief
In our sorrow, loss, and despair
In our pride and fall, though we’re weak and small
And we follow the world’s empty cares

Lord, now we come, oft we have strayed
But by the blood, mercy remains
Lord, lead us back, into Your arms
When faith we lack, anchor our hearts (anchor our hearts)

VERSE 3:
Against You alone have we sinned, O Lord
All our trespasses, please forgive.
God, we look to You, for Your Word is true
In Your ways, our hearts You have set

For You have come, poured out Your life
We’re washed in Your Word, You’ve called us Your bride
Now we are Yours, forgiven and free
We are Your church, You are our King (You are our King)

BRIDGE:
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
We stand amazed, in the light of Your grace (x 4)

Liturgy

Call to Worship

But I am afflicted and in pain;
let your salvation, O God, set me on high!
I will praise the name of God with a song;
I will magnify him with thanksgiving.
This will please the LORD more than an ox
or a bull with horns and hoofs.
When the humble see it they will be glad;
you who seek God, let your hearts revive.
For the LORD hears the needy
and does not despise his own people who are prisoners.
Let heaven and earth praise him,
the seas and everything that moves in them.
For God will save Zion
and build up the cities of Judah,
and people shall dwell there and possess it;
the offspring of his servants shall inherit it,
and those who love his name shall dwell in it. – Psalm 69:29–36

Corporate Confession

Save me, O God!
For the waters have come up to my neck.
I sink in deep mire,
where there is no foothold;
I have come into deep waters,
and the flood sweeps over me.
I am weary with my crying out;
my throat is parched.
My eyes grow dim with waiting for my God…
But as for me, my prayer is to you,
O LORD.
At an acceptable time, O God,
in the abundance of your steadfast
love answer me in your saving faithfulness
Deliver me
from sinking in the mire;
let me be delivered from my enemies
and from deep waters
Hide not your face from your servant,
for I am in distress; make haste to answer me.
Draw near to my soul, redeem me;
ransom me because of my enemies! – Psalm 69:1-3, 13-14, 17-18

Assurance of Pardon

Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, and he shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. In his days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell securely. And this is the name by which he will be called: “The LORD is our righteousness.” – Jeremiah 23:5-6
