PRELUDE – “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus” by Josh Garrels

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 5:7-8

But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love,
    will enter your house.
I will bow down toward your holy temple
    in the fear of you.
Lead me, O Lord, in your righteousness
    because of my enemies;
    make your way straight before me.

SONG –

How Great Thou Art” by Stuart K. Hine

CONFESSION OF SIN – Dan. 9:4-11

Let’s confess our sins together praying Daniel’s prayer in Daniel 9:4-11

“O Lord, the great and awesome God, 

who keeps covenant and steadfast love 

with those who love him and keep his commandments, 

we have sinned and done wrong and acted wickedly and rebelled, 

turning aside from your commandments and rules. 

We have not listened to your servants the prophets, 

who spoke in your name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, 

and to all the people of the land. 

 To you, O Lord, belongs righteousness, 

but to us open shame, as at this day, to the men of Judah, 

to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to all Israel, 

those who are near and those who are far away, 

in all the lands to which you have driven them, 

because of the treachery that they have committed against you. 

To us, O Lord, belongs open shame, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against you. 

To the Lord our God belong mercy and forgiveness, 

for we have rebelled against him 

and have not obeyed the voice of the Lord our God by walking in his laws, 

which he set before us by his servants the prophets. 

 All Israel has transgressed your law and turned aside, refusing to obey your voice. 

And the curse and oath that are written in the Law of Moses the servant of God 

have been poured out upon us, 

because we have sinned against him.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Heb. 4:14-16

Hear this assurance of pardon from Heb. 4:14-16

Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, 

Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 

 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses,

but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. 

Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, 

that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

CONFESSION OF SIN –  Before entering the promise land, the Lord commanded his people in Deuteronomy 6:4:

“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.

You shall love the Lord your God

with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.

 

For our idolatry and our failure to love the Lord with all we are, let’s take a moment to reflect upon our sins and pray that the Lord would be merciful to such a people as us.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Hear This assurance of pardon from Ephesians 2:4-8

—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.

CONFESSION OF SIN –

As a church, part of our covenant states that members are intimately interrelated. Therefore, we covenant together to consider how our words and deeds affect our fellow members and act accordingly. In this time of confession, let’s use this time to reflect on the times we have not taken our commitment to one another seriously and silently repent of the ways we often neglect one another. In the words of Jesus, “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” (John 15:12)

[Silent Space to Reflect]

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Hear this Assurance of Pardon from Christ prayer over his disciples in John Heb. 10:21-23

with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience

and our bodies washed with pure water.

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering,

for he who promised is faithful.

Glory in the Highest” by Chris Tomlin, Daniel Carlson, Ed Cash, Jesse Reeves, and Matt Redman

CONFESSION OF SIN –  1 John 1:5-10

This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you,

that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness,

we lie and do not practice the truth.

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light,

we have fellowship with one another,

and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.

If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins

 and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

 

Let’s take a moment to confess our sins, as we enter into worship of the God who is light.

 

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Col. 1:13-14

He has delivered us from the domain of darkness

and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son,

in whom we have redemption,

the forgiveness of sins.

For with you is the fountain of life;

CONFESSION OF SIN (Danny) – John 3:19-21

 And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world,

and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil.

 For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light,

lest his works should be exposed.

But whoever does what is true comes to the light,

so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.”

Since the light of Christ has come into our world, let us no longer walk in darkness. Let’s take some time to repent of our sins and return to true fellowship with the Lord.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON (Diana) – Hear this Assurance of Pardon from Romans 6:1-4

What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound?

 By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it?

Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus

were baptized into his death?

We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death,

 in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father,

we too might walk in newness of life.

You Are My King (Amazing Love)” by Billy J. Foote

CONFESSION OF SIN – “This Sunday has been set aside by many churches as Racial Reconciliation Sunday, a time to remorsefully reflect on the sins and consequences of racial prejudice even among our Southern Baptist Convention forefathers during the periods of slavery and segregation.  As we take our usual time to confess our sin before God, let’s carefully examine our hearts for sins of racism and any ways that we are prone to ignore the image of God in the oppressed, downtrodden, and those not like us.”

“Let’s read this confession of sin together”

Merciful Lord, we confess that with us there is an abundance of sin,

but in you there is the fullness of righteousness and abundance of mercy.

We are spiritually poor, but you are rich and in Jesus Christ came to be merciful to the poor. Strengthen our faith and trust in you.

We are empty vessels that need to be filled; fill us.

We are weak in faith; strengthen us.

We are cold in love; warm us, and make our hearts fervent for you

that our love may go out to one another and to our neighbors.

Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Hear this Assurance of Pardon from Eph. 2:13-15

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,

who was conceived by the Holy Spirit
and born of the virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;

The third day he rose again from the dead.
He ascended to heaven
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty.
From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I 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.

CONFESSION OF SIN  – Isa. 6:1-5

In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up;

and the train of his robe filled the temple.

Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face,

and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.

 And one called to another and said:

“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;
the whole earth is full of his glory!”

And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called,

and the house was filled with smoke.

And I said: “Woe is me! For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips,

and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips;

for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts!”

In light of the vision of God’s holy splendor it is only right for us reflect upon our sin and repent

[silent space to engage with God…]

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – Hear this assurance of pardon from Isaiah 6:6-7

Then one of the seraphim flew to me,

having in his hand a burning coal that he had taken with tongs from the altar.

“Behold, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away, and your sin atoned for.”

CONFESSION OF SIN – Matt. 2:16-18

Then Herod, when he saw that he had been tricked by the wise men, became furious, and he sent and killed all the male children in Bethlehem and in all that region who were two years old or under, according to the time that he had ascertained from the wise men. Then was fulfilled what was spoken by the prophet Jeremiah:

“A voice was heard in Ramah,

weeping and loud lamentation,

Rachel weeping for her children;

she refused to be comforted, because they are no more.”

 Jan. 22. 1973, the Supreme Court legalized abortion on demand in all 50 states. Since then churches across the states have set aside the third Sunday of the month as a day to commemorate the unborn lives lost due to this edict, and celebrate the Lord’s good gift of human life with the intent to preserve and protect all humanity through all stages of life.

In light of this, let us take some time to pray to our God, repenting for the sins of this nation and our implicit selfishness which turns our eyes away from those who need us most.

[silent space to engage with God…]

ASSURANCE OF PARDON  –

Here the prophetic words of comfort from Jeremiah 31:16-20

Thus says the Lord:

“Keep your voice from weeping, and your eyes from tears,

for there is a reward for your work, declares the Lord,

and they shall come back from the land of the enemy.

There is hope for your future, declares the Lord,

and your children shall come back to their own country.

I have heard Ephraim grieving,

‘You have disciplined me, and I was disciplined, like an untrained calf;

bring me back that I may be restored, for you are the Lord my God.

For after I had turned away, I relented, and after I was instructed, I struck my thigh;

I was ashamed, and I was confounded, because I bore the disgrace of my youth.’

Is Ephraim my dear son? Is he my darling child?

For as often as I speak against him, I do remember him still.

Therefore my heart yearns for him;

I will surely have mercy on him,

declares the Lord.

When the earth totters, and all its inhabitants, it is I who keep steady its pillars.
I say to the boastful, ‘Do not boast,’ and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up your horn;
do not lift up your horn on high, or speak with haughty neck.’”

For not from the east or from the westand not from the wilderness comes lifting up,
but it is God who executes judgment, putting down one and lifting up another.
For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup with foaming wine, well mixed,
and he pours out from it, and all the wicked of the earth shall drain it down to the dregs.

But I will declare it forever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.

CONFESSION OF SIN (Micah 6:8) –

He has told you, O man, what is good;and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,and to walk humbly with your God?

For our failure to walk according to the statutes of the Lord, let us pray together this confession of our sins, seeking pardon and refuge in the precious blood of Christ.

(Read Together)

Almighty God, we acknowledge and confess

that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed;

we have not loved you with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength;

we have not loved our neighbor as ourselves.

Deepen within us our sorrow for the wrong we have done,

and the good we have left undone.

Lord, you are full of compassion and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in

mercy; there is always forgiveness with you!

Restore to us the joy of your salvation;

bind up that which is broken,

give light to our minds, strength to our wills, and rest to our souls.

Speak to each of us, and let your word abide with us

until it has wrought in us your holy will.

Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON –

For our sins and for our salvation, Christ has come proclaiming in John 6:35-40

“I am the bread of life;

whoever comes to me shall not hunger,

and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.

But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe.

 All that the Father gives me will come to me,

and whoever comes to me I will never cast out.

For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will

but the will of him who sent me.

And this is the will of him who sent me,

that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me,

but raise it up on the last day.

For this is the will of my Father,

that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life,

and I will raise him up on the last day.”
