"Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!" The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah
- Psalm 46:10-11
CALL TO WORSHIP Psalm 100
Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth! Serve the LORD with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! Know that the LORD, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.
HYMN OF ADORATION No. 7 From All That Dwell Below the Skies
CORPORATE CONFESSION OF SIN AND ASSURANCE OF PARDON
Leader: In Christ, in the presence of Almighty God, let us with humble hearts confess our sins, so that we may be granted forgiveness by his infinite goodness and mercy.
All: Lord Jesus Christ, you came in order to serve, not to be served. We confess how unlike you we are in both our attitudes and actions. We serve when it is convenient for us or when it furthers our own purposes and agenda. We are reluctant to do so when it would be costly to us. Forgive us for our failure to love you and be your imitators. Forgive us for our failure to love others. How grateful we are that you have given your life as a ransom for many. Now give us your strength in order that we might pour our lives out for you and for those you have placed in our lives. We ask this for your sake and the sake of your kingdom. Amen.
Leader: Let us continue to confess our sins in silent prayer.
Leader: If you are trusting in Christ alone for the forgiveness of sins, hear his words of pardoning grace: but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.- Romans 5:8
All: Thanks be to God!
