CONFESSION OF SIN 

(Everyone Read Aloud)

Almighty and merciful God,

 we have erred and strayed from your ways like lost sheep.

We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts. 

We have left undone those things which we ought to have done. 

O Lord, have mercy upon us. Spare those who confess their faults. 

Restore those who are penitent, 

according to your promises declared to the world in Christ Jesus, our Lord.

And grant, O merciful God, for his sake,

 that we may live a holy, just, and humble life

to the glory of your holy name. 

Amen

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Heidelberg Catechism Question 1

Q. Christian, what is your only comfort in life and death?

A. That I am not my own, but belong with body and soul, both in life and in death,

to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ. 

He has fully paid for all my sins with His precious blood, 

and has set me free from all the power of the devil.

He also preserves me in such a way 

that without the will of my heavenly Father

not a hair can fall from my head; 

indeed, all things must work together for my salvation. 

Therefore, by His Holy Spirit He also assures me of eternal life

and makes me heartily willing and ready from now on to live for Him.

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

SCRIPTURE READING – 2 Timothy 4:6-8

(please stand for the reading of God’s Word and respond with, “Thanks be to God”)

For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.

SERMON – “Finishing the Race”
