Call to Worship

It is a privilege to be able to worship together this morning. We are here to worship the God and Father of our Lord Jesus, who is blessed forevermore. It is He who has gathers us to bring all blessing, honor, and glory to His infinitely worthy name. We are the Lord’s redeemed people. Though we feel the brokenness and turmoil of this world, we know that we can take refuge in the One who has chosen us in Him before the very foundation of the world.

Ephesians 1:3-10
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places,  even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ  as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.

Song

Christ Be Magnified by Cody Carnes, Cory Asbury, and Ethan Hulse.
 

 
Were creation suddenly articulate with a thousand tongues to lift one cry
Then from north to south and east to west we’d hear Christ be magnified

Were the whole earth echoing His eminence His name would burst from sea and sky
From rivers to the mountain tops we’d hear Christ be magnified

O Christ be magnified, let His praise arise, Christ be magnified in me
O Christ be magnified from the altar of my life, Christ be magnified in me

When ev’ry creature finds its inmost melody, and every human heart its native cry
Then in one enraptured hymn of praise we’ll sing Christ be magnified

I won’t bow to idols, I’ll stand strong and worship You
If it puts me in the fire, I’ll rejoice ‘cause You’re there too
I won’t be formed by feelings, I hold fast to what is true
‘Cause if the cross brings transformation, I’ll be crucified with You
‘Cause death is just the doorway into resurrection life
If I join You in Your sufferings then I’ll join You when You rise
And when You return in glory with all the angels and the saints
My heart will still be singing, my song will be the same

Prayer of Confession

Let’s take some time to confess our sins.

Assurance of Pardon

Once we were alienated, estranged, and cut off from God. We were enemies of God, and it went both ways, but through Christ’s atoning death on the cross we have been reconciled to God. Christ has made peace by the blood of his cross. Colossians tells us that He has forgiven us all our transgressions, having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. This is reason to celebrate the peace that we have in Christ Jesus!

Colossians 1:19-22
For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell,  and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.  And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him

Song

Is He Worthy? by Andrew Peterson and Ben Shive.
 

 
Do you feel the world is broken? (We do) Do you feel the shadows deepen? (We do)
But do you know that all the dark won’t stop the light from getting through? (We do)
Do you wish that you could see it all made new? (We do)

Is all creation groaning? (It is) Is a new creation coming? (It is)
Is the glory of the Lord to be the light within our midst? (It is)
Is it good that we remind ourselves of this? (It is)

Is anyone worthy? Is anyone whole? Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll?
The Lion of Judah who conquered the grave
He is David’s root and the Lamb who died to ransom the slave
Is He worthy? Is He worthy of all blessing and honor and glory?
Is He worthy of this? He is

Does the Father truly love us? (He does) Does the Spirit move among us? (He does)
And does Jesus, our Messiah, hold forever those He loves? (He does)
Does our God intend to dwell again with us? (He does)

Is anyone worthy? Is anyone whole? Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll?
The Lion of Judah who conquered the grave
He is David’s root and the Lamb who died to ransom the slave
From every people and tribe, every nation and tongue
He has made us a kingdom and priests to God to reign with the Son
Is He worthy? Is He worthy of all blessing and honor and glory?
Is He worthy? Is He worthy? Is He worthy of this?
He is, He is, He is, He is
He is worthy! He is worthy of all blessing and honor and glory
He is worthy of this, He is

Parables


This Sunday, Robert Greene will be continuing in our sermon series on the Parables of Jesus. His text will be Matthew 7:24-29 and Luke 6:46-49. If you missed the introduction to the series last Sunday, you can listen here.
 

Giving

2 Corinthians 9:7-9
Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. As it is written: “They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor; their righteousness endures forever.

As a body of believers we are to give not reluctantly or out of a sense of compulsion, but we are to give cheerfully and regularly to the Lord. When we give of our tithes and offerings, we are simply giving back to God what is rightfully His to begin with. God invites us to participate in His work through giving. If you would like to give a tithe or offering today, you can do so online by clicking here.

Passing of the Peace

Ephesians 2:13-18
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. And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near.  For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father.

We have peace with God and one another because He has made us one. He has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility. Just as Christ has extended us peace, let us extend peace to one another. There are many congregants who are hurting during this time, whether it be financially, physically or emotionally. Check up on one another by calling or texting. Listen and respond to their needs, including responding in prayer for one another. Reach out to those who are sick among us and ask how you can better serve them. Volunteer to bring a meal to one of the many families who have welcomed new additions to their family. While we are limited in our gathering on Sunday mornings, we can still practice extending the same peace that God extends to us.
