PRELUDE –

All I Need” by Shawn McDonald

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 18:2-3

In spite of the storms of life seeking to blow us off course, the Psalmist states:

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,

    my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,

    my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised,

    and I am saved from my enemies.

Let’s stand and call upon the Lord our refuge who is worthy to be praised.

CONFESSION OF SIN –

EVERYONE

God of love,

it is your will that we should love you with heart, soul, mind, strength,

 and our neighbor as ourselves,

but we are not sufficient for these things.

We confess that our affections continually turn away from you:

from purity to lust, from freedom to slavery,

from compassion to indifference, from fullness to emptiness.

Have mercy on us.

Order our lives by your holy Word,

and make your commandments the joy of our hearts.

Conform us to the image of your loving Son, Jesus,

 that we may shine before the world to your glory.

Amen.

EVERYONE:

We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired, and is a perfect treasure of heavenly instruction; that it has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture of error for its matter; that it reveals the principles by which God will judge us; and therefore is, and shall remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions should be tried.

Seek the LORD while he may be found, call on him while he is near;

let the wicked forsake his way and the evil man his thoughts.

and to our God, for he will freely pardon.

The LORD our God sees the depths of our sin and the secrets of our hearts.

But in God’s mercy and love, he calls us to repent of our sins and return to him.

CONFESSION OF SIN –

While all Christians openly declare God’s glory with our voice,  we must admit that so often we deny him glory in our hearts and actions. Let’s take some time to confess our sins to the Lord, and ask for his forgiveness when we fail to give him the full glory due to his name. Read with me the words of this confession:

EVERYONE:

God of love, it is your will that we should love you with heart, soul, mind, strength,

 and our neighbor as ourselves, but we are not sufficient for these things.

We confess that our affections continually turn away from you: 

from purity to lust, from freedom to slavery,

Conform us to the image of your loving Son, Jesus, 

that we may shine before the world to your glory. 

Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Ephesians 2:4-10

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.

Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, 

Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, 

but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. 

Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace,

 that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Since our high priest has clothed us with his righteousness, 

let us draw near to God to sing praise to his glorious name!

CONFESSION OF SIN – Daniel 9:4-8

Although Christ has covered our sins, we should still confess them before God.

Daniel the prophet gives us helpful words to use. 

O Lord, the great and awesome God, 

who keeps covenant and steadfast love 

with those who love him and keep his commandments, 

we have sinned and done wrong and acted wickedly and rebelled, 

turning aside from your commandments and rules. 

We have not listened to your servants the prophets, 

who spoke in your name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, 

and to all the people of the land. 

To you, O Lord, belongs righteousness, but to us open shame 

to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, 

because we have sinned against you…

For we do not present our pleas before you because of our righteousness,

but because of your great mercy.

CONFESSION OF SIN –  

In light of our need for God, let’s take a moment to pray aloud together with this corporate confession of sin.

Lord, though you should guide us, we inform ourselves;

though you should rule us, we control ourselves;

though you should fulfill us, we console ourselves.

We think your truth too high, your will too hard,

your power too remote, your love too free. But they are not!

And without them, we are of all people most miserable.

Now heal our confused minds with your word,

heal our divided wills with your law,

heal our troubled consciences with your love,

heal our anxious hearts with your presence,

all for the sake of your Son,

who loved us and gave himself for us. 

Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – (Psalm 103:8-12)

Hear this assurance of pardon from Psalm 103:8-12.

The Lord is compassionate and gracious,

    slow to anger, abounding in love.

He will not always accuse,

    nor will he harbor his anger forever;

he does not treat us as our sins deserve

    or repay us according to our iniquities.

For as high as the heavens are above the earth,

    so great is his love for those who fear him;

as far as the east is from the west,

    so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

CONFESSION OF SIN –  (Romans 1:28-32)

In Romans 1, Paul describes what happens to those who seek to suppress their knowledge of God in order to reject his rule over their lives. Paul writes, 

And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, 

God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 

They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. 

They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness.

 They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 

Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.

Since it is so easy for us to ignore God when he is inconvenient for us, let’s take some time to repent of our rebellion against him and acknowledge God as the true king over our lives.

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH — Week 31 (From the New City Catechism Quoting the Apostles’ Creed)

Q. What do we believe by true faith?

A. We believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth;

 and in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord, 

who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, 

born of the virgin Mary, 

suffered under Pontius Pilate, 

was crucified, died, and was buried.  

He descended into hell.  

The third day he rose again from the dead.  

He ascended into heaven, 

and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; 

from there he will come to judge the living and the dead.  

We believe in the Holy Spirit, 

the holy catholic church, 

the communion of saints, 

the forgiveness of sins, 

the resurrection of the body, 

and the life everlasting.

Congregation reads the bolded section aloud.

In light of God’s never ending love, let’s take a moment to reflect on the ways we have been unfaithful to the Lord throughout the week. Please read the bolded section from Judges 10:10-15 aloud. 

And the people of Israel cried out to the Lord, saying, 

“We have sinned against you, because we have forsaken our God 

and have served the Baals.” 

And the Lord said to the people of Israel,

 “Did I not save you from the Egyptians and from the Amorites, 

from the Ammonites and from the Philistines? 

 The Sidonians also, and the Amalekites and the Maonites oppressed you, 

and you cried out to me, and I saved you out of their hand. 

Yet you have forsaken me and served other gods; therefore I will save you no more.  

Go and cry out to the gods whom you have chosen; 

let them save you in the time of your distress.”  

And the people of Israel said to the Lord, 

“We have sinned; do to us whatever seems good to you. 

Only please deliver us this day.”

CONFESSION OF SIN –  Matthew 6:25-27

“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life,

what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on.

Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?

Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns,

and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?

And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?

And why are you anxious about clothing?

Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, 

yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 

But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven,

will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

Let’s take a moment to reflect and pray,

confessing the many times we’ve so often failed to trust God for our daily needs. 

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Philippians 4:19-20

And my God will supply every need of yours

according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
