Preparation for Worship

All Creatures of Our God and King
(Arr. by Valerie Roth Roubos)
 
(Please take this time to quietly meditate on the following Scripture passage as you prepare your heart to worship the Lord.)
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.
Psalm 139:13-16 (ESV)

Call to Worship

Based on Ephesians 1:3-18 (ESV)

(As God’s Word calls us to worship, let’s shout these words to one another recognizing that our worship is a response to God’s gracious call.)
 
Leader:
All glorious God, we give you thanks for in your Son, Jesus Christ, you have given us every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms.
 
Response:
You chose us, before the world was made, to be your holy people, without fault in your sight. You adopted us as your children in Christ.
 
Leader:
You have set us free by his blood; you have forgiven our sins.
 
Response:
You have made known to us your secret purpose, to bring heaven and earth into unity in Christ.
 
Leader:
You have given us your Holy Spirit, the seal and pledge of our inheritance.
 
ALL:
All praise and glory be yours, O God, for the richness of your grace, for the splendor of your gifts, for the wonder of your love.

Hymn of Praise #1

All People That on Earth Do Dwell

(William Kethe, 1561)

 
All people that on earth do dwell,
sing to the Lord with cheerful voice;
him serve with fear, his praise forthtell,
come ye before him and rejoice.
 
The Lord ye know is God indeed;
without our aid he did us make;
we are his folk, he doth us feed,
and for his sheep he doth us take.
 
O enter then his gates with praise,
approach with joy his courts unto;
praise, laud, and bless his name always,
for it is seemly so to do.
 
For why? The Lord our God is good
his mercy is forever sure;
his truth at all times firmly stood,
and shall from age to age endure.

Prayer of Adoration

I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say

(By Horatius Bonar, 1846)

 
I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“Come unto Me and rest;
lay down, O weary one, lay down
your head upon My breast.”
I came to Jesus as I was,
so weary, worn and sad;
I found in Him my resting place,
and He has made me glad.
 
I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“Behold, I freely give
the living water; thirsty one,
stoop down and drink, and live.”
I came to Jesus, and I drank
from that life-giving stream;
my thirst was quenched,
my soul revived,
and now, I live in Him.
 
I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“I am this dark world’s light;
look unto Me, thy morn shall rise,
and all thy days be bright.”
I looked to Jesus, and I found
in Him my Star, my Sun;
and in that light of life I’ll walk
’Til pilgrim days are done.

I Cry Out

(By Mercy/Vineyard, 1990)

 
I cry out
For your hand of mercy to heal me
I am weak, I need Your love to heal me
O Lord, my rock,
my strength in weakness
come and rescue me, O Lord.
 
You are my Hope
and Your promise never fails me.
And my desire
is to follow You forever.
 
For You are good, for You are good
For You are good to me
For You are good, for You are good
For You are good to me.
 
I cry out
for Your hand of mercy to heal me
I am weak,
I need Your love to heal me
O Lord, my rock,
my strength in weakness
come and rescue me, O Lord.
 
You are my Hope
And Your promise never fails me
And my desire is to follow You forever.
 
For You are good, for You are good
For You are good to me
For You are good, for You are good
For You are good to me.

Prayer of Confession

 
O Lord, You alone know how often we have offended You and hurt the lives of others. Forgive us, O Lord, for every unkind thought, every untrue word, every wrong act. Forgive us, for we have been selfish, and have not thought of the needs of others. Forgive us for our ingratitude, our neglect of prayer, our carelessness in the use of money, our forgetfulness of our sacred vows, the turning of our eyes away from the issues of the life of the unborn, and our neglect of those who are suffering the effects of old age. O God, have mercy upon us. Create in us clean hearts, and renew a right spirit within us we pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Comfort and Assurance of Pardon

Matthew 11:28, 1 Timothy 1:15 (ESV)
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. The saying is trustworthy and deserving full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.

Greeting of Peace

1 Thessalonians 5:13 (ESV)
Esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Be at peace among yourselves.

My Lord, You Have Examined Me

Proverbs 24:11-12 (ESV)

11 Rescue those who are being taken away to death;
hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter.
12 If you say, “Behold, we did not know this,”
does not he who weighs the heart perceive it?
Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it,
and will he not repay man according to his work?

Sermon

Behold, We Did Not Know This!

Hymn of Response #189

Jesus Loves Me

(By Anna B. Warner, 1859)

 
Jesus loves me, this I know,
for the bible tells me so;
little ones to him belong,
they are weak, but he is strong.
 
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus love me!
The Bible tells me so.
 
Jesus loves me, he who died,
heavens gates to open wide;
He will wash away my sin,
let his little child come in.
 
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus love me!
The Bible tells me so.
 
Jesus loves me, loves me still,
though I’m very weak and ill;
from his shining throne on high
comes to watch me where I die.
 
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus love me!
The Bible tells me so.
 
Jesus loves me, he will stay
close beside me all the way:
if I love him, when I die
He will take me home on high.
 
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus love me!
The Bible tells me so.
