PRELUDE – “Romans 12” by Streetlights

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Revelation 4:2-11

A throne stood in heaven,

with one seated on the throne.

And he who sat there had the appearance

of jasper and carnelian,

and around the throne was a rainbow that the appearance

of an emerald.

Around the throne were twenty-four thrones,

and seated on the thrones were twenty-four elders,

clothed in white garments,

with golden crowns on their heads.

From the throne came flashes of lightning,

and rumblings and peals of thunder,

and before the throne were burning seven torches of fire,

which are the seven spirits of God,

and before the throne there was as it were a sea of glass,

like crystal.

And around the throne, on each side of the throne,

are four living creatures,

full of eyes in front and behind:

the first living creature like a lion,

the second living creature like an ox,

the third living creature with the face of a man,

and the fourth living creature like an eagle in flight.

And the four living creatures, each of them with six wings,

are full of eyes all around and within,

and day and night they never cease to say,

“Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty,

who was and is and is to come!”

And whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks

to him who is seated on the throne,

who lives forever and ever,

the twenty-four elders fall down

before him who is seated on the throne

and worship him who lives forever and ever.

They cast their crowns before the throne, saying,

“Worthy are you, our Lord and God,

to receive glory and honor and power,

for you created all things,

and by your will they existed and were created.”

CONFESSION OF SIN – Isaiah 6:1-5

In the year that King Uzziah died

[the prophet Isaiah] saw the Lord sitting upon a throne,

high and lifted up;

and the train of his robe filled the temple.

Above him stood the seraphim.

Each had six wings:

with two he covered his face,

and with two he covered his feet,

and with two he flew.

And one called to another and said:

“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;

the whole earth is full of his glory!”

And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called,

and the house was filled with smoke.

And [he] said:

EVERYONE:

“Woe is me!

For I am lost;

for I am a man of unclean lips,

and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips;

for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts!”

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Isaiah 6:6-7

Then one of the seraphim flew to [him],

having in his hand a burning coal that he had taken with tongs from the altar.

And he touched [his] mouth and said:

“Behold, this has touched your lips;

your guilt is taken away, and your sin atoned for.”
