Call to Worship

Isaiah 61:1-3(ESV)

 

The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;  to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn;  to grant to those who mourn in Zion-- to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he may be glorified.

Hail to the Lord's Anointed

 

Hail to the Lord’s anointed, great David’s greater Son! 
Hail in the time appointed, His reign on earth begun!

His reign on earth begun!

 

He comes to break oppression, to set the captive free, 
To take away transgression, and rule in equity.

 

Hail to the Lord’s anointed, great David’s greater Son! 
Hail in the time appointed, His reign on earth begun!

His reign on earth begun!

He comes to comfort speedy to those who suffer wrong, 
To help the poor and needy, and bid the weak be strong.

 

To give them songs for sighing, their darkness turn to light, 
Whose souls, condemned and dying, are precious in His sight.

 

Hail to the Lord’s anointed, great David’s greater Son! 
Hail in the time appointed, His reign on earth begun!

His reign on earth begun!

 

He shall come down like showers upon the fruitful earth, 
Love, joy, and hope, like flowers, spring in His path to birth.

 

Hail to the Lord’s anointed, great David’s greater Son! 
Hail in the time appointed, His reign on earth begun!

His reign on earth begun!

 

The tide of time shall never His covenant remove. 
His Name shall stand forever, That Name to us is Love.

 

Hail to the Lord’s anointed, great David’s greater Son! 
Hail in the time appointed, His reign on earth begun!

His reign on earth begun!

Worshiping God by Confessing Our Faith

Titus 3:3-7 (ESV)

 

For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another.  But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

There is A Redeemer

 There is a Redeemer, Jesus, God's own Son
Precious Lamb of God, Messiah, Holy One

 

Thank You, O my Father, for giving us Your Son
And leaving Your Spirit till the work on earth is done

 

 Jesus, my Redeemer, name above all names
Precious Lamb of God, Messiah
Hope for sinners slain

 

 Thank You, O my Father, for giving us Your Son
And leaving Your Spirit till the work on earth is done

 

 When I stand in glory, I will see His face
There I'll serve my King forever
In that holy place

 

 Thank You, O my Father, for giving us Your Son
And leaving Your Spirit till the work on earth is done

          Series: Good News of Great Joy

Sermon: Christ

In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This was the first registration when Quirinius was governor of Syria. And all went to be registered, each to his own town. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn. And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. And the angel said to them, "Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger." And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!"

Worshiping God by Singing

 

Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus

Come thou long-expected Jesus, born to set thy people free;

from our fears and sins release us; let us find our rest in thee.

Israel’s strength and consolation, hope of all the earth thou art,

dear Desire of ev’ry nation, joy of ev’ry longing heart.

 

Joy to those who long to see thee, Dayspring from on high, appear; come, thou promised Rod of Jesse, of thy birth we long to hear!

O’er the hills the angels singing news, glad tidings of a birth:
“Go to him, your praises bringing; Christ the Lord has come to earth.”

 

Come to earth to taste our sadness, he whose glories knew no end;

By his life he brings us gladness, our Redeemer, Shepherd, Friend. Leaving riches without number, born within a cattle stall;

This the everlasting wonder, Christ was born the Lord of all.

 

Born thy people to deliver, born a child and yet a king,

born to reign in us forever, now thy gracious kingdom bring.

By thine own eternal Spirit rule in all our hearts alone;

By thine all sufficient merit, raise us to thy glorious home.
