Preparation for Worship

This Is My Father’s World
(Arr. by Joel Raney)
 
(Please take this time to quietly meditate on the following Scripture passage as you prepare your heart to worship the Lord.)
Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.  On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’  And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’
Matthew 7:21-23 (ESV)

Call to Worship

Psalm 95:1-7 (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:
Oh come, let us sing to the LORD;
 
Response:
let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!
 
Leader:
Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;
 
Response:
let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!  For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
 
Leader:
In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also. The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.
 
ALL:
Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the LORD, our Maker! For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.

Hymn of Exaltation #302

Come, Christians, Join to Sing

(By Christian H. Bateman, 1843)

 
Come, Christians, join to sing
Allelulia! Amen!
loud praise to Christ Our King;
Alleluia! Amen!
let all, with heart and voice,
before his throne rejoice;
praise is his gracious choice.
Alleluia! Amen!
 
Come, lift your hearts on high,
Allelulia! Amen!
let praises fill the sky;
Alleluia! Amen!
He is our Guide and Friend;
to us he’ll condescend;
His love shall never end.
Alleluia! Amen!
 
Praise yet our Christ again,
Allelulia! Amen!
life shall not end the strain;
Alleluia! Amen!
on heaven’s blissful shore,
His goodness we’ll adore,
singing forevermore,
Alleluia! Amen!

Prayer of Adoration

Song of Praise

Your Love, O Lord

(By Brad Avery, David Carr, Mac Powell, Mark D Lee, Tai Anderson; CCLI #1894255)
 
Your love, oh Lord;
reaches to the heavens.
Your faithfulness;
stretches to the sky.
Your righteousness
is like the mighty mountains.
Your justice flows
like the ocean’s tides.
 
I will lift my voice,
To worship You my King
I will find my strength
In the shadow of Your wings.
 
Your love, oh Lord;
reaches to the heavens.
Your faithfulness;
stretches to the sky.
Your righteousness
is like the mighty mountains.
Your justice flows
like the ocean’s tides.
 
I will lift my voice,
To worship You my King
I will find my strength
In the shadow of Your wings.
[repeat]
 
Your Love Oh Lord;
reaches to the Heavens.
Your Faithfulness
stretches to the sky.

Song of Praise

Upon a Life I Have Not Lived

(By Horatius Bonar and Kevin Twit)
 
Upon a Life I have not lived,
upon a Death I did not die,
Another’s Life; Another’s Death
I stake my whole eternity.
Not on the tears which I have shed;
not on the sorrows I have known:
Another’s tears; Another’s griefs:
on these I rest, on these alone.
 
O Jesus, Son of God,
I build on what Thy cross
has done for me.
There both my life and death I read,
my guilt, my pardon there I see,
there I see.
 
Lord, I believe; O deal with me
as one who has Thy Word believed!
I take the gift, Lord, look on me
as one who has Thy gift received.
 
O Jesus, Son of God,
I build on what Thy cross
has done for me.
There both my life and death I read,
my guilt, my pardon there I see,
there I see.
 
Upon a Life I have not lived,
upon a Death I did not die,
Another’s Life; Another’s Death
I stake my whole eternity.
 
O Jesus, Son of God,
I build on what Thy cross
has done for me.
There both my life and death I read,
my guilt, my pardon there I see,
there I see.

Greeting of Peace

Song of Preparation

Yet Not I But Through Christ In Me

(By Jonny Robinson, Michael Farren, Rich Thompson; CCLI #7121852)
 
Verse 1
What gift of grace is Jesus my redeemer
There is no more for heaven now to give
He is my joy my righteousness and freedom
My steadfast love my deep and boundless peace

To this I hold my hope is only Jesus
For my life is wholly bound to his
Oh how strange and divine I can sing all is mine
Yet not I but through Christ in me
 
Verse 2
The night is dark but I am not forsaken
For by my side the Saviour he will stay
I labour on in weakness and rejoicing
For in my need his power is displayed

To this I hold my Shepherd will defend me
Through the deepest valley he will lead
Oh the night has been won and I shall overcome
Yet not I but through Christ in me
 
Verse 3
No fate I dread I know I am forgiven
The future sure the price it has been paid
For Jesus bled and suffered for my pardon
And he was raised to overthrow the grave

To this I hold my sin has been defeated
Jesus now and ever is my plea
Oh the chains are released I can sing I am free
Yet not I but through Christ in me
 
Verse 4
With every breath I long to follow Jesus
For he has said that he will bring me home
And day by day I know he will renew me
Until I stand with joy before the throne

To this I hold my hope is only Jesus
All the glory evermore to him
When the race is complete still my lips shall repeat
Yet not I but through Christ in me
 
Ending
When the race is complete still my lips shall repeat
Yet not I but through Christ in me
Yet not I but through Christ in me

Hebrews 3:7-12

7 Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says,

“Today, if you hear his voice,
8 do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion,
on the day of testing in the wilderness,
9 where your fathers put me to the test
and saw my works for forty years.
10 Therefore I was provoked with that generation,
and said, ‘They always go astray in their heart;
they have not known my ways.’
11 As I swore in my wrath,
‘They shall not enter my rest.’”

12 Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God.

A Warning Against Unbelief

Hymn of Response #481

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

(By Helen H. Lemmel, 1922)
 
O soul, are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s light for a look at the Savior,
and life more abundant and free!
 
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
look full in his wonderful face;
and the things of earth
will grow strangely dim
in the light of his glory and grace.
 
Through death into life everlasting
He passed, and we follow him there;
over us sin no more hath dominion
for more than conqu’rors we are!
 
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
look full in his wonderful face;
and the things of earth
will grow strangely dim
in the light of his glory and grace.
 
His Word shall not fail you he promised;
believe him and all will be well:
then go to a world that is dying,
His perfect salvation to tell!
 
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
look full in his wonderful face;
and the things of earth
will grow strangely dim
in the light of his glory and grace.

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, and 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, in Jesus’ name, Amen!

Comfort and Assurance of the Gospel

Matthew 11:28, 1 Timothy 1:15, Psalm 103:2-4 (ESV)
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance,
that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.
Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits,
who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy.

The Lord’s Supper

Closing Hymn #642

Be Thou My Vision

(Ancient Irish poem, ca. 8th cent.; Tr. by Mary E. Byrne, 1905; Versified by Eleanor H. Hull, 1912)
 
Be Thou my vision,
O Lord of my heart;
naught be all else to me,
save that Thou art
Thou my best thought,
by day or by night,
waking or sleeping,
Thy presence my light.
 
Riches I heed not,
nor man’s empty praise,
Thou mine inheritance,
now and always:
Thou and Thou only,
first in my heart,
High King of heaven,
my treasure Thou art.
 
High king of heaven,
my victory won,
may I reach heaven’s joys,
O bright heav’n’s Sun!
Heart of my own heart,
whatever befall,
Still be my vision,
O Ruler of all.
