CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 107:1-3: 

“Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,

    for his steadfast love endures forever!

Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,

    whom he has redeemed from trouble

and gathered in from the lands,

    from the east and from the west,

    from the north and from the south.”

Let’s stand and give thanks to the Lord, 

for he has gathered his people into his presence this morning!


Praise to the Lord, the Almighty” by Joachim Neander

CONFESSION OF SIN – Colossians 3:12-15

As God gathers his people out of this world and into his heavenly kingdom, 

The Apostle Paul now commands all Christians in Colossians 3 to put to death what is earthly in us and instead:

“Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.”

One of the means by which Christians today put off the world and put on Christ Jesus is by regularly confessing to God the ways in which we are still worldly today. In spite of God’s mercy, none of us perfectly reflect God’s kindness, humility, and patience, and all of us still need to ask for his forgiveness for the ways we still fail to love others as Jesus himself has loved us. Let’s use this time of silence in our service to pray and confess our sins before the Lord and seek his forgiveness and mercy.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Ephesians 2:12-15

“Remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility.”

Through the blood of Christ, 

we who were once far off now have peace with God and his people.

Let’s continue to give thanks to the Lord this morning!
