Call to Worship
O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you;
My flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory.
Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you.
So I will bless you as long as I live; in your name I will lift up my hands.
-Psalm 63:1-4

It Is Finished

Confession
He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and treated others with contempt: “Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I get.’ But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’ I tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”
-Luke 18:9-14

Assurance of Pardon
And as he reclined at table in his house, many tax collectors and sinners were reclining with Jesus and his disciples, for there were many who followed him. And the scribes of the Pharisees, when they saw that he was eating with sinners and tax collectors, said to his disciples, “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?”
And when Jesus heard it, he said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.”

For the Beauty of the Earth
[Youtube]

Call to Worship
The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup;
you hold my future.
The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.
You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are always increasing  pleasures.

The instructions of the Lord are perfect–reviving the soul.
The decrees of the Lord are trustworthy–making wise the simple.
The commandments of the Lord are right–bringing joy to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are clear–giving insight for living.

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.
-Psalm 16:5-6,11; 19:7-8,14

Song of Moses
[Youtube] [iTunes] [Spotify]

Confession
As a deer longs for flowing streams, so I long for you, God.
I thirst for God, the living God.
When can I come and appear before God?
My tears have been my food day and night,
while all day long people say to me, “Where is your God?”

I remember this as I pour out my heart: how I walked with many,
leading the festive procession to the house of God, with joyful and thankful shouts.
Why, my soul, are you so dejected?
Why are you in such turmoil?

Put your hope in God, for I will still praise him, my Savior and my God.
Why are you downcast, O my soul?
I will remember God’s faithfulness in the land of Jordan.

The Lord will send his faithful love by day;
his song will be with me in the night— a prayer to the God of my life.
-Psalm 42

Assurance of Pardon
“This is what the Sovereign Lord says: ‘Look! I am going to put breath into you and make you live again!
I will put flesh and muscles on you and cover you with skin.
I will put breath into you, and you will come to life.
Then you will know that I am the Lord.’”
Ezekiel 37:5-6

Two Things to Avoid

Titus 3:8-15

Praise to the Lord
[Youtube] [iTunes] [Spotify]

Call to Worship
The Lord merely spoke, and the heavens were created.
He breathed the word, and all the stars were born.
He assigned the sea its boundaries and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs.
Let the whole world fear the Lord, and let everyone stand in awe of him.
The Lord frustrates the plans of the nations and thwarts all their schemes.

But the Lord’s plans stand firm forever; his plans can never be shaken.
We put our hope in the Lord. He is our help and our shield.
In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.
Let your unfailing love surround us, Lord, for our hope is in you alone.
-From Psalm 33

God is Good

Confession
Eternal God, we confess that often we have failed to be a perfectly obedient church:
We have not always done your will; we have broken your law.
We have rebelled against your love; we have not loved our neighbors as we should.
We have not heard the cry of the needy.
Forgive us, we pray.
Free us for joyful obedience.
Through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
Amen.

Assurance of Pardon
There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. But grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of Christ’s gift.
-Ephesians 4:4-7
