PRELUDE —  “You Hold It All Together” by All Sons and Daughters

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 149

Praise the Lord!
Sing to the Lord a new song,
    his praise in the assembly of the godly!
Let Israel be glad in his Maker;
    let the children of Zion rejoice in their King!
Let them praise his name with dancing,
    making melody to him with tambourine and lyre!
For the Lord takes pleasure in his people;
    he adorns the humble with salvation.
Let the godly exult in glory;
    let them sing for joy on their beds.
Let the high praises of God be in their throats
    and two-edged swords in their hands,
to execute vengeance on the nations
    and punishments on the peoples,
to bind their kings with chains
    and their nobles with fetters of iron,
to execute on them the judgment written!
    This is honor for all his godly ones.
Praise the Lord!

All Praise to Him” by Bob Kauflin and Matt Merker

CONFESSION OF SIN – 

Let’s confess our sins together. Read this prayer with me.

Gracious God,

 we confess that we have longed too much for the comforts of this world. We have loved the gifts more than the giver. 

In your mercy, help us to see 

that all the things we pine for are shadows, but you are substance; 

that they are quicksands, but you are mountain; 

that they are shifting, but you are anchor. 

We plead your forgiveness on the merits of Jesus Christ. 

Accept his worthiness for our unworthiness, 

his sinlessness for our transgressions, 

his fullness for our emptiness, 

his glory for our shame, 

his righteousness for our dead works, 

his death for our life. 

We pray in Jesus name. 

Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Jeremiah 31:31-34

“Behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord, 

when I will make a new covenant 

with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, 

not like the covenant that I made with their fathers 

on the day when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, 

my covenant that they broke, though I was their husband, 

declares the Lord. 

For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord: 

I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. 

And I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 

And no longer shall each one teach his neighbor and each his brother, 

saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they shall all know me, 

from the least of them to the greatest, 

declares the Lord. 

For I will forgive their iniquity, 

and I will remember their sin no more.”
