Call to Worship
Oh sing to the Lord a new song,
for he has done marvelous things!
His right hand and his holy arm
have worked salvation for him.

The Lord has made known his salvation;
he has revealed his righteousness in the sight of the nations.
He has remembered his steadfast love and faithfulness
to the house of Israel.
All the ends of the earth have seen
the salvation of our God.

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth;
break forth into joyous song and sing praises!
Sing praises to the Lord with the harp,
with the harp and the sound of music!
With trumpets and the sound of the horn
make a joyful noise before the King, the Lord!

Let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
the world and those who dwell in it!
Let the rivers clap their hands;
let the hills sing for joy together
before the Lord, for he comes
to judge the earth.
He will judge the world righteously
and the peoples fairly.
-Psalm 98

Confession of Sin
Lord, you come to us, but we do not recognize you;
you call, but we do not follow;
you command, but we do not obey,
you bless us, but we do not thank you.
Please forgive and help us.

Lord, you accept us, but we are slow to accept others;
you forgive us, but we fail to forgive those who wrong us;
you love us, but we do not love our neighbors.
Please forgive and help us.

Lord, you showed us your kingdom,
but we still insist on our own.
You identified yourself with outcasts, the needy, and the poor,
but we accept worldly barriers that separate people;
you suffered and died for the sake of all,
but still we seek comfort and status.
Please forgive and help us,
through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
Amen.

Assurance of Pardon
See what great love the Father has given us that we should be called God’s children—and we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it didn’t know him. Dear friends, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet been revealed. We know that when he appears, we will be like him because we will see him as he is. And everyone who has this hope in him purifies himself just as he is pure.
-1 John 3:1-3

Hallelujah! Thanks be to God.

Benediction
The love of God the Father, the faithful creator,
the peace of Christ, the wounded healer,
the joy of the challenging Spirit,
the hope of the Three in One
surround and encourage you
today, tonight, and forever.
Amen.

Sermon
The Parable of the Great Banquet
Luke 14:7-24

Lead Pastor

Call to Worship
On this mountain, the Lord of Armies will prepare for all the peoples a feast of choice meat,
a feast with aged wine, prime cuts of choice meat, fine vintage wine.
And he will swallow up on this mountain
the covering that is cast over all peoples,
the veil that is spread over all nations.
He will swallow up death forever;
and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces
and remove his people’s disgrace
from the whole earth, for the Lord has spoken.
On that day it will be said,
“Look, this is our God;
we have waited for him, and he has saved us.
This is the Lord; we have waited for him.
Let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.”
–Isaiah 25:6-9

Confession of Sin
O God, whose nature it is to be generous:
we confess to you our share of the guilt
for a world of hungry families and homeless peoples.
Forgive us for our self-centered living and spending;
forgive those who blame you for their failures.
Our reluctance to give generously of our treasure and our time
reveals our fear and our lack of trust in your good commands.
Grant that both our church and our nation may hear
the cries of those who have nothing to eat and nowhere to live,
for the sake of Jesus Christ.
Amen.

God Is Good

Assurance of Pardon
Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world’s eyes or powerful or wealthy when God called you. Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful. God chose things despised by the world, things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important. As a result, no one can ever boast in the presence of God.
God has united you with Christ Jesus.
For our benefit God made him to be wisdom itself. Christ made us right with God; he made us pure and holy, and he freed us from sin.
–1 Corinthians 1:26-30

And also with you.

Call to Worship
How lovely is your dwelling place,
O Lord of hosts!
My soul longs, yes, faints
for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and flesh sing for joy
to the living God.
Even the sparrow finds a home,
and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may lay her young,
at your altars, O Lord of hosts,
my King and my God.
Blessed are those who dwell in your house,
ever singing your praise!

How blessed are those who find their strength in you,
and long to travel the roads that lead to your temple!
-Psalm 84:1-5

Confession of Sin
Holy and merciful God,
in your presence we confess
our sinfulness, our shortcomings,
and our offenses against you.
You alone know how often we have sinned
in wandering from your ways,
in wasting your gifts,
in forgetting your love.
Have mercy on us, O Lord,
for we are ashamed and sorry
for all we have done to displease you.
Forgive our sins,
and help us to live in your light
and walk in your ways,
for the sake of Jesus Christ, our Savior. Amen.

Assurance of Pardon
Jesus Christ for himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace that he lavished on us in the Beloved One.
In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace that he richly poured out on us with all wisdom and understanding.

He made known to us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure that he purposed in Christ as a plan for the right time—to bring everything together in Christ, both things in heaven and things on earth in him.
In him we have also received an inheritance, because we were predestined according to the plan of the one who works out everything in agreement with the purpose of his will, so that we who had already put our hope in Christ might bring praise to his glory.

In him you also were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and when you believed. The Holy Spirit is the down payment of our inheritance, until the redemption of the possession, to the praise of his glory.
-Ephesians 1:3-14
