Liturgy Recap January 28, 2018

Call to Worship:

I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart;
    I will recount all of your wonderful deeds.
I will be glad and exult in you;
    I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.
Psalm 9:1-2

Song: How Great Thou Art (Paul Baloche)

Confession:

Lord, you said, “If you love me, you will obey what I command.”
Forgive us our lukewarm love and our disobedience. 
Lord, you said, “You may ask for anything in my name.”
Forgive us when we think we need to solve
our own problems.
Lord, you said, “Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” We confess that our lives are often consumed
by worry and anxiety.
Lord, you said, “If you remain in me and I in you,
you will bear much fruit.”
Forgive us our barren lives, Lord.
Lord, you said, “You must testify, for you have been with me.”
We confess, Lord, that we have been too often silent.
Lord, you said, “Love each other as I have loved you.”
In this and in so many other ways,
we confess our failures and shortcomings. Amen. 

Assurance:

Through the blood of Christ Jesus, our Lord,
we have redemption, forgiveness of sins.
The riches of God’s grace have been poured out upon us.

Praise be to our God,
who has chosen and made us his own.
Praise be to our God,
who forgives and cleanses us.
Praise be to our God,
who blesses us beyond our imagination!

Song:  Come Behold the Wondrous Mystery (Matt Papa)

Missions Moment:  Elizabeth Harrison is working with TWR on a project to put the gospel in the hands of many.

Benediction:

 Now to him who is able to strengthen you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery that was kept secret for long ages but has now been disclosed and through the prophetic writings has been made known to all nations, according to the command of the eternal God, to bring about the obedience of faith—  to the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ! Amen.
Romans 16:25-27
