PRELUDE – “Great are you Lord” by All Sons and Daughters

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP

Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power

 and the glory and the victory and the majesty,

for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours.

Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted as head above all.

Both riches and honor come from you, and you rule over all.

In your hand are power and might,

and in your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all.

And now we thank you, our God,

and praise your glorious name.

1 Chronicles 29:11-13 ESV

CONFESSION OF SIN –

Let’s confess our sins together. Please read the bold sections out loud.

Minister: Blessed Jesus,
you offered us all your blessings when you announced
Blessed are the poor in spirit

People: but we have been rich in pride.

Minister: Blessed are those who mourn

People: but we have not known much sorrow for our sin.

Minister: Blessed are the meek

People: but we are a stiff-necked people.

Minister: Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness

People: but we are filled to the full with other things.

Minister: Blessed are the merciful”

People: but we are harsh and impatient.

Minister: Blessed are the pure in heart

People: but we have impure hearts.

Minister: Blessed are the peacemakers

People: but we have not sought reconciliation.


Minister: Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness

People: but our lives do not challenge the world.

Minister: Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you
and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me

People: but we have hardly made it known that we are yours.

Minister: Your Law is holy and your benedictions are perfect,
but they are both too great for us.
You alone are blessed.

People: We plead with you to forgive our sins
and give us the blessing of your righteousness.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON–

Hear this assurance of Pardon from Isaiah 66:1-2

Thus says the Lord:

“Heaven is my throne,

and the earth is my footstool;

what is the house that you would build for me,

and what is the place of my rest?

All these things my hand has made,

and so all these things came to be,

declares the Lord.

But this is the one to whom I will look:

he who is humble and contrite in spirit

and trembles at my word.
