Sermon
The Whole Gospel
Michael Clary
1 John 5:1-12

Service

Made Alive   
[Youtube] [iTunes] [Spotify]

Call to Worship
Lord, through all the generations you have been our home!
Before the mountains were born, before you gave birth to the earth
and the world, from beginning to end, you are God.

Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love,
that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us,
and for as many years as we have seen evil.

Let your work be shown to your servants,
and your glorious power to their children.
Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us,
and establish the work of our hands upon us;
yes, establish the work of our hands!
Psalms 90:1-2

Confession 
Our Lord Jesus said:
“‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,
and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’
This is the greatest and first commandment.
And a second is like it:
‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’
On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”

As God has instructed us in these great commandments,
and because we have not lived in full obedience,
let us now confess our sins to God,
trusting Christ as our Savior and Lord.
—based on Matthew 22:37-40

Assurance of Pardon
“Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven,
Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess.
For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses,
but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin.

Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence,
so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need
.”
-Hebrews 4:14-16

Benediction
As you go, remember that the great shepherd of the sheep–Jesus Christ–
is walking with you, equipping you, and pleading for you until the end.

Sermon
God is Love, but Love is Not God
Eric Tuffendsam
1 John 4:7-21

Service

God is Good   
[Youtube] [iTunes] [Spotify]

Call to Worship
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever.
Give thanks to the Lord of lords,
for his steadfast love endures forever.

Give thanks to him who alone does great wonders,
for his steadfast love endures forever.
to him who by understanding made the heavens,
for his steadfast love endures forever.
to him who made the sun and stars

for his steadfast love endures forever;
to him brings his people out of exile
for his steadfast love endures forever;
It is he who remembered us in our low estate,

for his steadfast love endures forever;
and rescued us from our enemies,
for his steadfast love endures forever;
Give thanks to the God of heaven,
for his steadfast love endures forever.
Adapted from Psalm 136

Confession
God of perfect love,
we confess our willingness to be loved
but also our reluctance to love.
We confess our readiness to accept your forgiveness
but also our refusal to forgive.
We confess our eagerness to grasp your redeeming love
but also our resistance to follow you completely

Forgive our shallow and selfish love
You call us to love our enemies
But we struggle to love others in the faith
Your love lead you to the cross
Yet we often cling to comfort and convenience
Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world,
have mercy on us.

How Great the Love

Assurance of Pardon
Who will bring any charge against God’s elect?
It is God who justifies.
Who is to condemn?
It is Christ Jesus, who died, yes, who was raised,
who is at the right hand of God, who indeed intercedes for us.
Who will separate us from the love of Christ?
Will hardship, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

For I am convinced that neither death, nor life,
nor angels, nor rulers,
nor things present, nor things to come,
nor powers, nor height, nor depth,
nor anything else in all creation,
will be able to separate us
from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
(Romans 8:31-35, 37-39)

Benediction
May the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one another and for all,
as we do for you, so that he may establish your hearts blameless
in holiness before our God and Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all his saints.
1 Thessalonians 3:12-13
