What a Beautiful Name” by Ben Fielding and Brooke Ligertwood

CONFESSION OF SIN –

Almighty God who alone is worthy of all praise and honor,

we confess that we are often not consumed with You

but are occupied with lesser things:

our own comfort, our safety, our reputation…

Forgive us for not desiring the fame of your Name.

We are sorry for the ways that we have been ashamed of the gospel.

We repent for the ways we spend our time, talents, and treasures on ourselves.

We lament the callousness of our hearts to the plight of the lost…

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Luke 19:10

The Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost!

The Lord’s Prayer –

Our Father in heaven,

Hallowed be Your name.

Your kingdom come.

Your will be done

On earth as it is in heaven.

And forgive us our debts,

As we forgive our debtors.

And do not lead us into temptation,

But deliver us from the evil one.

For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.

Amen.

Come, everyone who thirsts,

come to the waters;

and he who has no money,

come, buy and eat!

Come, buy wine and milk

without money and without price.

Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread,

and your labor for that which does not satisfy?

Listen diligently to me, and eat what is good,

and delight yourselves in rich food.

Incline your ear, and come to me;

hear, that your soul may live.

Song –

and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

to the praise of his glorious grace.

CONFESSION OF SIN – Philippians 2:3-4

Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit,

but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.

Let each of you look not only to his own interests,

but also to the interests of others.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Philippians 2:5-8

Christ Jesus,

who, though he was in the form of God,

did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped,

but emptied himself,

by taking the form of a servant,

being born in the likeness of men.

And being found in human form,

he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death,

even death on a cross.
