Preparation for Worship

Day by Day
Seek to show hospitality. Show hospitality to one another without grumbling.
Romans 12:13; 1 Peter 4:9 (ESV)

Call to Worship

Deuteronomy 24:17-18, Ephesians 2:13, 19; 5:1-2 (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:
You shall not pervert the justice due to the sojourner or to the fatherless, or take a widow’s garment in pledge, but you shall remember that you were a slave in Egypt and the LORD your God redeemed you from there.
 
Response:
But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. So then, you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God.
 
ALL:
Therefore, be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

We praise thee O God!
for the days of our youth,
for the bright lamp that shineth
the Word of thy truth.
 
Hallelujah! Thine the glory,

Hallelujah! Thine the glory,
our praise now we bring.
 
We praise thee O God!
for the Son of thy love,
for Jesus who died
and is now gone above.

We praise thee O God!
for thy Spirit of light,
who has shown us our Savior
and scattered our night.

All glory and praise
to the Lamb that was slain,
who has borne all our sins
and has cleansed ev’ry stain.

Hallelujah! Thine the glory,
our praise now we bring.

Open the Eyes of My Heart

Open the eyes of my heart, Lord

Song of Praise

Give Us Clean Hands

We bow our hearts, we bend our knees
O Spirit come make us humble
We turn our eyes from evil things
O Lord we cast down our idols
 
Give us clean hands,
give us pure hearts
Let us not lift our souls to another
(repeat)
 
We bow our hearts, we bend our knees
O Spirit come make us humble
We turn our eyes from evil things
O Lord we cast down our idols
 
Give us clean hands,
give us pure hearts
Let us not lift our souls to another
(repeat)
 
O God let us be a generation that seeks
That seeks your face O God of Jacob
(repeat)
 
Give us clean hands,
give us pure hearts
Let us not lift our souls to another
(repeat)

Prayer of Confession

Heavenly Father, by condemning envy, hatred, and anger, You tell us to love our neighbors as ourselves, to be patient, peace-loving, gentle, merciful, and friendly to them, to protect them from harm as much as we can, and to do good even to our enemies. But Father, it is hard to forgive people when they hurt us and our loved ones. We want to hurt back—and sometimes we do. But you teach us to love our enemies no matter what they do. Forgive us, Lord, when we do not forgive others. Help us to understand why people hurt others, and let our hearts be filled with love for them. This we pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Comfort and Assurance of the Gospel

1 Timothy 1:15-16 (ESV)
The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost. But I received mercy for this reason, that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might display his perfect patience as an example to those who were to believe in him for eternal life.

Greeting of Peace

Jude 1:2 (ESV)
May mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you.

Congregational Prayer

Ephesians 6:18 (ESV)
[Pray] at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints.

Worshiping the Lord with His Tithes and Our Offerings

Deuteronomy 8:17-18 (ESV)
Beware lest you say in your heart, “My power and the might of my hand have gotten me this wealth.” You shall remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth.

Shout with Delight to the Lord

Shout with delight to the Lord all you people.
Worship the Lord with full gladness of heart.
Come bow before him with songs full of praises,
Joyful with all of your heart.

Enter his gates with a song of thanksgiving.
Enter his courts with your tongue tuned to praise.
Our God is good, and his love lasts forever;
Faithfulness marks all his ways.
 
Know that the Lord, he is God.
For he made us, we are his flock,
The sheep of his pasture,
And he is our rock.
Know that the Lord, he is God!

Hebrews 13:1-2 (ESV)

1 Let brotherly love continue. 2 Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

Sermon

Philadelphia — Brotherly Love and Hospitality

Rev. Dave Stain
Pastor, Spring Hills Presbyterian Church

Hymn of Response #355

We Are God’s People
 
We are God’s people,
the chosen of the Lord,
born of his Spirit,
established by his Word;
our cornerstone is Christ alone,
and strong in him we stand:
O let us live transparently,
and walk heart to heart
and hand in hand.
 
We are God’s loved ones,
the Bride of Christ our Lord,
for we have known it,
the love of God outpoured;
now let us learn how to return
the gift of love once giv’n:
O let us share each joy and care,
and live with a zeal
that pleases heav’n.
 
We are the Body
of which the Lord is Head,
called to obey him,
now risen from the dead;
He wills us be a family,
diverse yet truly one:
O let us give our gifts to God,
and so shall his work
on earth be done.
 
We are a temple,
the Spirit’s dwelling place,
formed in great weakness,
a cup to hold God’s grace;
we die alone, for on its own
each member loses fire:
yet joined in one the flame burns on
to give warmth and light,
and to inspire.

Benediction

Romans 15:5-7 (ESV)
May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.
