Facing a Task Unfinished (NEW SONG)
Call to Worship
Let the heavens praise your wonders, O LORD, your faithfulness in the assembly of the holy ones! For who in the skies can be compared to the LORD? Who among the heavenly beings is like the LORD, a God greatly to be feared in the council of the holy ones, and awesome above all who are around him? O LORD God of hosts, who is mighty as you are, O LORD, with faithfulness all around you? – Psalm 89:5-8
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
May the Lord bless you and keep you and make his face to shine upon you and give you peace. May the Father of our Lord Jesus, equip you with the eternal Spirit, so that you might be empowered and emboldened to obey our King’s commands to make disciples of nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey all the commands of Jesus, to glory of our great Triune God alone. Amen.
