Call to Worship

(from Colossians 2:3; Revelation 5:12)

 

L:           The Lord Jesus who calls us to worship him today

    is the same Jesus who refused temptation

    to worship the evil one.

    Rather than receive the glorious kingdoms of the world,

    he endured the shame of the cross,

    and today is Lord of lords and King of kings.

    Now are gathered in him all the treasures

    of wisdom and knowledge, glory, and power.

    With the saints of all ages we say,

 

P:           “Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,

    to receive power and wealth and wisdom

    and strength and honor and glory and praise!”

 

 

Here is Our King

 

        Here is our King, here is our love

        Here is our God who’s come

        To bring us back to him

        He is the One, he is Jesus (repeat)

 

    From wherever spring arrives 

    To heal the ground

    From wherever searching comes the look itself

    A trace of what we’re looking for 

    So be quiet now and wait

 

    The ocean, is growing

    The tide is coming in, here it is

 

        Here is our King, here is our love

        Here is our God who’s come

        To bring us back to him

        He is the One, he is Jesus (repeat)

 

    And what was said to the rose 

    To make it unfold

    Was said to me here in my chest 

    So be quiet now and rest 

 

    The ocean, is growing

    The tide is coming in, here it is

 

        Here is our King, here is our love

        Here is our God who’s come

        To bring us back to him

        He is the One, he is Jesus (repeat)

 

    Majesty, finally

 

        Here is our King, here is our love

        Here is our God who’s come

        To bring us back to him

        He is the One, he is Jesus (repeat)

Scandal of Grace

 

    Grace what have You done 

    Murdered for me on that cross

    Accused in absence of wrong 

    My sin washed away in Your blood

 

        Too much to make sense of it all

        I know that Your love breaks my fall

        The scandal of grace You died in my place

        So my soul will live

 

        Oh to be like You give all I have just to know You

        Jesus there's no-one beside You

        Forever the hope in my heart

 

    Death where is your sting

    Your power is as dead as my sin

    The cross has taught me to live

    And mercy my heart now to sing

 

        The day and its troubles shall come

        I know that Your strength is enough

        The scandal of grace You died in my place

        So my soul will live

 

        Oh to be like You give all I have just to know You

        Jesus there's no-one beside You

        Forever the hope in my heart

 

    And it's all because of You Jesus it's all because of You Jesus

    It's all because of Your love that my soul will live

 

        Oh to be like You give all I have just to know You

        Jesus there's no-one beside You

        Forever the hope in my heart

In Christ Alone

 

    In Christ alone my hope is found;

    He is my light, my strength, my song;

    This cornerstone, this solid ground,

    Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.

    What heights of love, what depths of peace,

    When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!

    My comforter, my all in all

    Here in the love of Christ I stand.

 

    In Christ alone, Who took on flesh,

    Fullness of God in helpless babe!

    This gift of love and righteousness,

    Scorned by the ones He came to save.

    Till on that cross as Jesus died,

    The wrath of God was satisfied;

    For ev'ry sin on Him was laid

    Here in the death of Christ I live.

 

    There in the ground His body lay,

    Light of the world by darkness slain;

    Then bursting forth in glorious day,

    Up from the grave He rose again!

    And as He stands in victory,

    Sin's curse has lost its grip on me;

    For I am His and He is mine

    Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

 

    No guilt in life, no fear in death

    This is the pow'r of Christ in me;

    From life's first cry to final breath,

    Jesus commands my destiny.

    No pow'r of hell, no scheme of man,

    Can ever pluck me from His hand;

    Till He returns or calls me home

    Here in the power of Christ I stand.

Affirmation of Faith

(The New City Catechism, Colossians 1:21-22)

 

 

L:           Why was it necessary for Christ, the Redeemer, to die?

 

P:           Since death is the punishment for sin,

    Christ died willingly in our place

    to deliver us from the power and penalty of sin

    and bring us back to God. 

    By his substitutionary atoning death 

    he alone redeems us from hell

    and gains for us forgiveness of sin,

    righteousness, and everlasting life. 

 

L:            And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing 

    evil deeds, he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his     

    death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above

    reproach before him. 

 

 

Scripture Reading

(Psalm 105:1-6, 37-45)

 

Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name;

make known his deeds among the peoples!

Sing to him, sing praises to him;

tell of all his wondrous works!

Glory in his holy name;

let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice!

Seek the Lord and his strength;

seek his presence continually!

Remember the wondrous works that he has done,

his miracles, and the judgments he uttered,

O offspring of Abraham, his servant,

children of Jacob, his chosen ones!

 

Then he brought out Israel with silver and gold,

and there was none among his tribes who stumbled.

Egypt was glad when they departed,

for dread of them had fallen upon it.

He spread a cloud for a covering,

and fire to give light by night.

They asked, and he brought quail,

and gave them bread from heaven in abundance.

He opened the rock, and water gushed out;

it flowed through the desert like a river.

For he remembered his holy promise,

and Abraham, his servant.

So he brought his people out with joy,

his chosen ones with singing.

And he gave them the lands of the nations,

and they took possession of the fruit of the peoples' toil,

that they might keep his statutes

and observe his laws.

Praise the Lord!

Scripture Reading        

Luke 10:38-42 (ESV)

 

    38 Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village. And a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to his teaching. 40 But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” 41 But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, 42 but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.”

 

 

Scripture Meditation                

“Mary and Martha”

Rev. Patrick Donohue

 

 

Confession of Sin

(based on Psalm 130)

       

L:            Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord.

    Lord, hear my voice!

    Let your ears be attentive

    to the voice of my supplication!

    If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities,

    Lord, who could stand?

    But there is forgiveness with you,

    so that you may be revered.

    I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,

    and in his word I hope;

    my soul waits for the Lord

    more than those who watch for the morning,

    more than those who watch for the morning.

    O Israel, hope in the Lord!

    For with the Lord there is steadfast love,

    and with him is great power to redeem.

    It is he who will redeem Israel

    from all its iniquities. 

 

 

Assurance of Grace              

(from 1 Peter 2:24)

 

P:            He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross,

    so that, free from sins,

    we might live for righteousness;

    by his wounds you have been healed.
