PRELUDE – 

“The Beauty Between” by Kings Kaleidoscope

CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 150:1,6

“Praise God in his sanctuary;

Praise him in his mighty heavens!

Praise him for his mighty deeds;

Praise him according to his excellent greatness!

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!”

SONG –

Behold, Our God” by Jonathan, Meghan, and Ryan Baird and Mark Altrogge

CONFESSION OF SIN –

Today’s sermon text instructs Christians to avoid haughtiness and put on humility. One of the ways that we do this is by weekly confessing our sins to the Lord. In this small confession on the 8th commandment, the Reformer Martin Bucer instructs Christians on how they should confess to the sin of stealing. As I read these words, pray along in your own heart asking God to forgive us for our own greed and selfishness.

I confess that I have stolen. 

I acknowledge my greed, 

that regarding temporary goods I have set myself against you and your commandments. Greedily and contrary to love, I have seized these goods; 

but scarcely, if at all, I have passed them out, where my neighbor’s need required it.

Therefore, I ask you, heavenly Father, 

that you would graciously forgive me these and all my sins, 

and from now on keep me and protect me, 

so that I may walk only in your way and live, 

through Jesus Christ, your dear Son our Savior.

(Moment of Silence)

Be Magnified” by Lynn DeShazo

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – 1 Corinthians 6:11

To those who repent of their sins and trust in Christ for his salvation, 

the Lord declares in 1 Cor. 6:11:

You were washed, you were sanctified, 

you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ 

and by the Spirit of our God.

Therefore, with clean hearts and sanctified spirits 

let’s celebrate together the salvation we find in the name of Christ Jesus our Lord.

SONG – 

Take My Life and Let It Be” by Frances Ridley Havergal and Henri Abraham Cesar Malan

SCRIPTURE READING – 1 Timothy 6:17-21 Please stand for the reading. End with “This is the word of the Lord.” 

As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life.

O Timothy, guard the deposit entrusted to you. Avoid the irreverent babble and contradictions of what is falsely called “knowledge,” for by professing it some have swerved from the faith.

Grace be with you.

“It is good to give thanks to the Lord,

    and your faithfulness by night,

to the music of the lute and the harp,

    to the melody of the lyre.

For you, O Lord, have made [us] glad by your work;

    at the works of your hands [we] sing for joy.”

SONG –

Come Praise and Glorify” by Bob Kauflin and Tim Chester

CONFESSION OF SIN – Matthew 6:19-21

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, 

where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, 

but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, 

where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

I Stand Amazed in the Presence” by Charles Hutchinson Gabriel

APOSTLES CREED

We believe in God the Father Almighty,

Maker of heaven and earth;

and in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord,

who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,

born of the virgin Mary,

suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, dead, and buried.

 He descended into hell

and on the third day he rose again from the dead.

He ascended into heaven,

and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;

from thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead.

We believe in the Holy Spirit,

the holy catholic church,

the communion of saints,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting.

Amen.

SONG – 

O the Love of My Redeemer” by Josh Caterer

SCRIPTURE READING – 1 Timothy 6:3-10 Please stand for the reading. End with “This is the word of the Lord.” 

Teach and urge these things. If anyone teaches a different doctrine and does not agree with the sound words of our Lord Jesus Christ and the teaching that accords with godliness, he is puffed up with conceit and understands nothing. He has an unhealthy craving for controversy and for quarrels about words, which produce envy, dissension, slander, evil suspicions, and constant friction among people who are depraved in mind and deprived of the truth, imagining that godliness is a means of gain. But godliness with contentment is great gain, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.

“Swallowed Up Death” by Coram Deo Church

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 22:23-24

“You who fear the LORD, praise him!

All you offspring of Jacob, glorify him,

and stand in awe of him all you offspring of Israel!

For he has not despised or abhorred

the affliction of the afflicted,

and he has not hidden his face from him,

but has heard when he cried to him.”

SONG –

Blessed Be Your Name” by Matt Redman

CONFESSION OF SIN – adapted from Psalm 25

Remember, O Lord, your great mercy and love, for they are from of old.

Remember not the sins of my youth, and my rebellious ways:

According to your love remember me, for you are good, O Lord….

For the sake of your name, O Lord, forgive my iniquity, though it is great.

Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. 

The troubles of my heart have multiplied; free me from my anguish. 

Look upon my affliction and my distress and take away all my sins.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Heidelberg Q.56

(please read the bolded section aloud together)

Christian, what do you believe concerning the “forgiveness of sins”?

That God, for the sake of Christ’s satisfaction, 

will no more remember my sins,

 nor the sinful nature with which I have to struggle all my life long; 

but graciously imputes to me the righteousness of Christ,

that I may nevermore come into condemnation.

Amazing Grace” by John Newton

Center” by Charlie Hall

SCRIPTURE READING – 1 Timothy 6:1-2

(please respond to the reading with, “thanks be to God”)

Let all who are under a yoke as bondservants regard their own masters as worthy of all honor, so that the name of God and the teaching may not be reviled. Those who have believing masters must not be disrespectful on the ground that they are brothers; rather they must serve all the better since those who benefit by their good service are believers and beloved.
