PRELUDE – 

Psalm 150 (Praise the Lord)” by Matt Boswell and Matt Papa

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Revelation 5:13-14

In his vision of the exalted Christ, the apostle John hears all creatures in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea saying,

“To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb

Be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!”

Let’s join in the chorus of all creation and declare the glory of Christ 

the Lamb enthroned forever. 

SONG –

All Creatures of Our God and King” by Jonathan Baird, Ryan Baird, St. Francis of Assisi, and William Henry Draper

CONFESSION OF SIN –

While all Christians openly declare God’s glory with our voice,  we must admit that so often we deny him glory in our hearts and actions. Let’s take some time to confess our sins to the Lord, and ask for his forgiveness when we fail to give him the full glory due to his name. Read with me the words of this confession:

EVERYONE:

God of love, it is your will that we should love you with heart, soul, mind, strength,

 and our neighbor as ourselves, but we are not sufficient for these things.

We confess that our affections continually turn away from you: 

from purity to lust, from freedom to slavery, 

from compassion to indifference, from fullness to emptiness. 

Have mercy on us. Order our lives by your holy Word, 

and make your commandments the joy of our hearts. 

Conform us to the image of your loving Son, Jesus, 

that we may shine before the world to your glory. 

Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Ephesians 2:4-10

But God, being rich in mercy,

because of the great love with which he loved us,  

even when we were dead in our trespasses,  

made us alive together with Christ

—by grace you have been saved—

and raised us up with him 

and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,  

so that in the coming ages 

he might show the immeasurable riches 

of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 

For by grace you have been saved through faith. 

And this is not your own doing; 

it is the gift of God, 

not a result of works, 

so that no one may boast.
