PRELUDE – “We Are Not Ashamed” by Andraé Crouch

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Ephesians 1:19-21

May you know

what is the immeasurable greatness of God’s power

toward us who believe,

according to the working of his great might

that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead

and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places,

far above all rule and authority and power and dominion,

and above every name that is named,

not only in this age but also in the one to come.

Song –

Forever” by Brian Johnson, Christ Black Gifford, Gabriel Wilson, Jenn Johnson, Joel Taylor, and Kari Jobe

CONFESSION OF SIN – Mark 8:38 and Matthew 7:22-23

Whoever is ashamed of me

and of my words

in this adulterous and sinful generation,

of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed

when he comes in the glory of his Father

with the holy angels.

On that day many will say to me,

‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name,

and cast out demons in your name,

and do many mighty works in your name?’

And then will I declare to them,

‘I never knew you;

depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Romans 3:23, 21-22

All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…

But now the righteousness of God has been manifested…

the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ

for all who believe.

Song –

Not in Me” by David L. Ward and Eric Shumacher

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH – from the Heidelberg Catechism Q 60

How are you righteous before God?

Only by true faith in Jesus Christ.

Although my conscience accuses me

that I have grievously sinned

against all God’s commandments,

have never kept any of them,

and am still inclined to all evil,

yet God, without any merit of my own,

out of mere grace,

imputes to me

the perfect satisfaction,

righteousness, and holiness of Christ.

He grants these to me

as if I had never had nor committed

any sin,

and as if I myself had accomplished

all the obedience

which Christ has rendered for me,

if only I accept this gift

with a believing heart

PRAYER

CHILDREN’S BLESSING & DISMISSAL – New City Catechism Q18

Will God allow our disobedience and idolatry to go unpunished?

No, God is righteously angry with our sins,

and will punish them

both in this life, and in the life to come.
