CONFESSION OF SIN

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – New Hampshire Confession of Faith Article IV

We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace,

through the mediatorial offices of the Son of God;

who by the appointment of the Father,

freely took upon him our nature, yet without sin;

honored the divine law by his personal obedience,

and by his death made a full atonement for our sins;

that having risen from the dead, he is now enthroned in heaven;

and uniting in his wonderful person the tenderest sympathies with divine perfections,

he is every way qualified to be a suitable, a compassionate, and an all-sufficient Saviour.

Your Grace Is Enough” by Matt Maher

PRAYER

and will punish them

both in this life,

PRELUDE – “Facing a Task Unfinished” by Keith & Kristen Getty

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 100

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!

Serve the Lord with gladness!

Come into his presence with singing!

Know that the Lord, he is God!

It is he who made us, and we are his;

we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving,

and his courts with praise!

Give thanks to him; bless his name!

For the Lord is good;

his steadfast love endures forever,

and his faithfulness to all generations.

Song –

You Are Good” by Israel Houghton

CONFESSION OF SIN – “Yet I Sin” from The Valley of Vision

Eternal Father,

You are good beyond all thought,

But I am vile, wretched, miserable, blind;

My lips are ready to confess, but my heart is slow to feel,

and my ways reluctant to amend.

I bring my soul to You;

break it, wound it, bend it, mould it.

Unmask to me sin’s deformity,

that I may hate it, abhor it, flee from it.

My faculties have been a weapon of revolt against You;

as a rebel I have misused my strength,

and served the foul adversary of Your kingdom.

Give me grace to bewail my insensate folly,

Grant me to know that the way of transgresors is hard,

that evil paths are wretched paths,

that to depart from You is to lose all good….

All these sins I mourn, lament, and for them cry pardon.

Work in me more profound and abiding repentance;

Give me the fullness of godly grief that trembles and fears,

yet ever trusts and loves,

which is ever powerful, and ever confident;

Grant that through the tears of repentance I may see more clearly

the brightness and glories of the saving cross.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Psalm 51:16-17

For you will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it;

you will not be pleased with a burnt offering.

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit;

a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.

Songs –

Now Why This Fear?” by Augustus Toplady and Doug Plank

One Thing Remains” by Brian Johnson, Christa Black Gifford, Jeremy Riddle

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH – The Apostles’ Creed

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, dead, and buried.

He descended into hell

and on the third day he rose again from the dead.

He ascended into heaven

and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty,

from thence He shall 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. Amen.

PRELUDE – “Glorious” by Martha Munizzi

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – New Hampshire Confession Article I

We believe that there is one, and only one, living and true God,

an infinite, intelligent Spirit, whose name is Jehovah,

the Maker and Supreme Ruler of heaven and earth;

inexpressibly glorious in holiness,

and worthy of all possible honor, confidence, and love.

Song –

Behold, Our God” by Baird and Altrogge

CONFESSION OF SIN – Habakkuk 2:18-20

What profit is an idol

when its maker has shaped it,

a metal image, a teacher of lies?

For its maker trusts in his own creation

when he makes speechless idols!

Woe to him who says to a wooden thing, Awake;

to a silent stone, Arise!

Can this teach?

Behold, it is overlaid with gold and silver,

and there is no breath at all in it.

But the Lord is in his holy temple;

let all the earth keep silence before him.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Isaiah 1:18

Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord:

though your sins are like scarlet,

they shall be as white as snow;

though they are red like crimson,

they shall become like wool.

PRELUDE – “All Creatures of Our God and King” by John Rutter and the Cambridge Singers

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Colossians 3:16

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly,

teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom,

singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,

with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

“Songs of Praise” by James Montgomery (1819)

Songs of praise the angels sang,
Heaven with alleluias rang,
When creation was begun,
When God spake and it was done.

Songs of praise awoke the morn
When the Prince of Peace was born;
Songs of praise arose when He
Captive led captivity.

Heaven and earth must pass away;
Songs of praise shall crown that day.
God will make new heavens and earth;
Songs of praise shall hail their birth.

And shall man alone be dumb
Till that glorious kingdom come?
No; the Church delights to raise
Psalms and hymns and songs of praise.

Saints below, with heart and voice,
Still in songs of praise rejoice;
Learning here, by faith and love,
Songs of praise to sing above.

Borne upon their latest breath,
Songs of praise shall conquer death;
Then, amidst eternal joy,
Songs of praise their powers employ.

Hymns of glory, songs of praise,
Father, unto Thee we raise;
Jesus, glory unto Thee,
With the Spirit, ever be.

Song –

Come Praise and Glorify” by Bob Kauflin and Tim Chester

CONFESSION OF SIN –

Almighty and merciful God,

we have erred and strayed from your ways like lost sheep.

We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts.

We have offended against your holy laws.

We have left undone those things which we ought to have done;

And we have done those things which we ought not to have done.

O Lord, have mercy upon us.

Spare those who confess their faults.

Restore those who are penitent,

according to your promises declared to the world

in Christ Jesus our Lord.

And grant, O merciful God, for his sake,

that we may live a holy, just, and humble life

to the glory of your holy name.

Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Romans 4:25

Jesus our Lord… was delivered up for our trespasses

and raised for our justification.

Songs –

Behold the Risen Christ” by The Village Church

Glorious Christ” by Bob Kauflin

PRAYER

CHILDREN’S BLESSING & DISMISSAL – New City Catechism Q15
