Call to Worship

 Isaiah 55:6-9 (ESV)

 

Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.  For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Jesus, I Come 
 
Out of my bondage, sorrow and night, Jesus, I come; Jesus I come. Into Thy freedom, gladness and light, Jesus, I come to Thee. Out of my sickness into Thy health,  Out of my wanting and into Thy wealth, Out of my sin and into Thyself, Jesus, I come to Thee. 
 
Out of my shameful failure and loss, Jesus, I come; Jesus, I come. Into the glorious gain of Thy cross, Jesus, I come to Thee. Out of earth’s sorrows into Thy balm,  
Out of life’s storms and into Thy calm, Out of distress into jubilant psalm, Jesus, I come to Thee. 
 
Out of unrest and arrogant pride, Jesus, I come; Jesus, I come. Into Thy blessed will to abide, Jesus, I come to Thee. Out of myself to dwell in Thy love, out of despair into raptures above, Upward forever on wings like a dove, Jesus, I come to Thee. 
 
Out of the fear and dread of the tomb, Jesus, I come; Jesus, I come. Into the joy and light of Thy home, Jesus, I come to Thee. Out of the depths of ruin untold, into the peace of Thy sheltering fold, Ever Thy glorious face to behold, Jesus, I come to Thee.

Worshiping God by Confessing our Sins

 

Holy Father, forgive us. You give us guidance, but we want to guide ourselves. You rule over us, but we want to be in control. You give us fulfillment in Christ Jesus, but we want to fulfill ourselves our own way. You give us joy unspeakable, but we too often choose the misery of sin over the joy of Christ.  Again and again we give in to the temptation to believe your truth is too high, your will too hard, your power too remote, your love too free.  Heal our confused minds, our divided wills, our troubled consciences, and our anxious hearts, for the sake of your Son, Jesus, who loved us and gave himself for us. Amen. 

Worshiping God by Confessing our Hope

Titus 3:3-8 (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.

Not What my Hands 
 
Not what my hands have done can save my guilty soul; not what my toiling flesh has borne can make my spirit whole. Not what I feel or do can give me peace with God; not all my prayers and sighs and tears can bear my awful load. 
 
These guilty hands are raised, filthy rags are all I bring And I have come to hide beneath your wings These holy hands are raised, washed in the fountain of your grace And now I wear your righteousness. 
 
Thy work alone, oh Christ, can ease this weight of sin Thy blood alone, oh Lamb of God, can give me peace within Thy love to me, oh God, not mine, oh Lord, to thee Can rid me of this dark unrest and set my spirit free 
 
These guilty hands are raised, filthy rags are all I bring And I have come to hide beneath your wings These holy hands are raised, washed in the fountain of your grace And now I wear your righteousness 
 
Thy grace alone, oh God, to me can pardon speak Thy power alone, oh Lamb of God, can this sore bondage break No other work save thine, no other blood will do No strength but that which is divine can bear me safely through 
 
These guilty hands are raised, filthy rags are all I bring And I have come to hide beneath your wings These holy hands are raised, washed in the fountain of your grace And now I wear your righteousness 
 
I praise the God of grace; I trust his truth and might He calls me his, I call him mine, My God, my Joy, my Light My Lord has saved my life and freely pardon gives; I love because he first loved me, I live because he lives.

There were some present at that very time who told him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. And he answered them, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans, because they suffered in this way? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish. Or those 
eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them: do you think that they were worse offenders than all the others who lived in Jerusalem? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.”

Jesus, Lover of My Soul 
 
Jesus, lover of my soul, let me to Thy bosom fly While the nearer waters roll, while the tempest still is high Hide me, O my Savior, hide, ’til life’s storm is past; Safe into the haven guide; receive my soul at last. 
 
Other refuge have I none, I helpless hang on Thee Leave, ah, leave me not alone, still support and comfort me. All my trust on Thee is stayed, help from Thee I bring Cover my defenseless head in the shadow of Thy wing 
 
Thou, O Christ, are all I want, more than all in Thee I find Raise the fallen, cheer the faint, heal the sick and lead the blind Just and holy is Thy Name, I am all unrighteousness 
False and full of sin I am; Thou art full of truth and grace. 
 
Plenteous grace with Thee is found, grace to cover all my sin; Let the healing streams abound; make and keep me pure within Thou of life, the fountain art, let me take of Thee Spring Thou up within my heart: to all eternity.
