PRELUDE – 

“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.
