“A man may be ignorant of many things and still be a Christian, but if a man is ignorant of the things that we find in John 3, then he is on the high road that leads to destruction.” - J.C. Ryle
We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. - Romans 6:4
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. 1 All People That On Earth Do Dwell
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: Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD!
O Lord, hear my voice!
Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my pleas for mercy!
If you, O LORD, should mark iniquities,
O Lord, who could stand?
But with you there is forgiveness, that you may be feared.
I wait for the LORD, my soul waits,
and in his word I hope;
my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning,
more than watchmen for the morning. - Psalm 130:1-6
Leader: Let everyone who is godly offer silent prayer to the Lord while he may be found.
Leader: If you are trusting in Christ alone for the forgiveness of sins, hear his words of pardoning grace in the gospel and give thanks:
O Israel, hope in the LORD!
For with the LORD there is steadfast love,
and with him is plentiful redemption.
And he will redeem Israel from all his iniquities. - Psalm 130:7-8
Leader: This is the good news!
All: Thanks be to God!
