Call to Worship

We join this morning in worship with the hosts of heaven who praise our heavenly Father and our eternal God day and night. The praises of our God echoes throughout all the ages and will until the very end of the age. The praises of our God will never cease. He was, and is, and is to come. This morning, we come to worship the Lord unreservedly, and without hindrance. We come to praise the Lord with loud voices, and hands uplifted.

Psalm 146:1-6
Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord, O my soul! I will praise the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being. Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation. When his breath departs, he returns to the earth; on that very day his plans perish. Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God, who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, who keeps faith forever;

Prayer
Lord, it is in you today that we live, and move, and have our being. You give us the very breath that we breathe, and while we have breath we want to praise you. We are like a breath, and our days are like a passing shadow, but you, oh Lord, are eternal! You made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them. You will reign forever! All of our help comes from you. All of our hope is in you. Help us not to misplace our trust and hope in the rulers of this world. They are men who who cannot save. Lord, help us to place our trust in you today. Help us to know that you are working all things, everything for our good.

Song

Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing (capo’d version in C) by Robert Robertson.

Come, Thou Fount of every blessing, tune my heart to sing Thy grace
Streams of mercy, never ceasing, call for songs of loudest praise
Teach me some melodious sonnet, sung by flaming tongues above
Praise the mount! I’m fixed upon it, mount of Thy redeeming love

Here I raise my Ebenezer; here by Thy great help I’ve come

And I hope, by Thy good pleasure, safely to arrive at home

Jesus sought me when a stranger, wandering from the fold of God
He, to rescue me from danger, interposed His precious blood

O to grace how great a debtor daily I’m constrained to be

Let Thy goodness, like a fetter, bind my wandering heart to Thee
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, prone to leave the God I love
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it; seal it for Thy courts above

Oh, that day when freed from sinning, I shall see Thy lovely face

Full arrayed in blood-washed linen, how I’ll sing Thy sovereign grace
Come, my Lord, no longer tarry, bring Thy promises to pass

For I know Thy pow’r will keep me till I’m home with Thee at last

Prayer of Confession

(Based on Lamentations 1:18)
Lord, we like the writer of Lamentations can cry aloud: The Lord is in the right, for we have rebelled against his word. We come to you today with twisted hearts. We come to you today with rebellious hearts, and we pour them out like water before your presence. Father, forgive us. Have mercy on us. We need you today to test and examine our ways, so that we can return to you! We need you today to lift our heads, our hearts, and hands to you, O God in heaven. Restore us to yourself, O Lord, that we may be restored.

Assurance of Pardon

Our God is faithful to keep all of His promises. When we confess our sin, He is faithful to cleanse us and to purify us from all unrighteousness. The writer of Lamentations turns his lament from bitter mourning into gladness. He remembers the Lord’s great love, and realizes that in light of the Lord’s great love, forgiveness, compassion, mercy, faithfulness, and grace, he has hope. This too is our hope! God’s steadfast love is always present. His mercies are new every morning. Great is His faithfulness towards us who believe!

Lamentations 3:22-26
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him. It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.

Passing of the Peace

Romans 15:2
Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up.

During this time, we have a unique opportunity to build one another up. Take some time today to encourage at least one other person with the truth you heard today from God’s Word in the sermon. Share a psalm, hymn, or song that has been of reassurance to you. Ask someone how you can be praying for them and then pray with them. Ask them how you can support them during this time. Even though we are not physically gathered together on Sunday mornings, we must continue to obey the command to please his neighbor for his good, to build him up.

[seen]


This morning, as a church family, we are going to worship God together as we read and respond to His Word as Robert Greene continues in our sermon series entitled [seen]. His text will be Luke 7:11-17.

Giving

Acts 20:35
In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.”

God is the source of all of our gifts and all of our blessings. God provides us with everything. We as a body of believers are to give proportionally, cheerfully and regularly to the Lord. We are not to give out of compulsion or the feeling of “being forced to” give. Instead, we are to give of our own freewill. Giving is still a way that God invites us to participate in His work. If you would like to give a tithe or offering today, you can do so online by clicking here. Let’s continue singing:

Song

See What the Lord Has Done (Keep Your Lamps Trimmed and Burning) by Zachary Banister.

Oh, don’t worry; no, don’t you worry

Oh, don’t worry; see what the Lord has done

He has defeated sin and Satan, He has defeated sin and Satan
He has defeated sin and Satan, see what the Lord has done

Keep your lamps trimmed and burning, keep your lamps trimmed and burning
Keep your lamps trimmed and burning, see what the Lord has done

All things rest under His hand
, all will follow under His plan
Jesus came as the atonement Lamb, see what the Lord has done

Sending on Mission

We are God’s children, and we have been bought with a high price, through the spotless sacrifice of our atonement Lamb, our Great High Priest, the Lord Jesus Christ. It is because of Christ’s sacrifice that we have nothing to fear. Christ has defeated, sin, death and hell. Christ has won the victory. Yet in this world, we face many temptations. We have an enemy who prowls around like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour called the devil. Ephesians tells us that we are to put on the full armor of Christ the Lord so that we may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil and after doing everything we are to continue to stand without wavering.

Ephesians 6:10-13
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.
