PRELUDE – “Let Us Love and Sing and Wonder” by John Newton

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – 2 Samuel 22:47-50

“The Lord lives, and blessed be my rock,
    and exalted be my God, the rock of my salvation,
the God who gave me vengeance
    and brought down peoples under me,
who brought me out from my enemies;
    you exalted me above those who rose against me;
    you delivered me from men of violence.

“For this I will praise you, O Lord, among the nations,
    and sing praises to your name.

Let’s stand and worship the Lord together.

CONFESSION OF SIN – Luke 12:16-21

And he told them a parable, saying,

“The land of a rich man produced plentifully,

and he thought to himself, ‘What shall I do,

for I have nowhere to store my crops?’

And he said, ‘I will do this: I will tear down my barns and build larger ones,

and there I will store all my grain and my goods.

And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; relax, eat, drink, be merry.”’

But God said to him,

‘Fool! This night your soul is required of you,

and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?’

So is the one who lays up treasure for himself and is not rich toward God.”

Let’s repent of the ways we rely on our own resources for our comfort rather than relying on the mercies of our Lord.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Luke 18:13-14

“But the tax collector stood at a distance.

He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said,

‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’

“I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God.

For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled,

and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”

Just as the tax collector returned home justified, we too can know that we have been set right before God when we humble ourselves and ask for his mercy.
