Worship Service for February 11, 2024

Welcome

 

Call to Worship

Let Your mercies come also to me, O Lord—Your salvation according to Your word.42 So shall I have an answer for him who reproaches me,For I trust in Your word.

Psalm 119:41-42


Hymn # 457 Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing 

1 Come, thou fount of ev'ry blessing, tune my heart to sing thy grace; streams of mercy, never ceasing, for songs of loudest praise.Teach me some melodious sonnet, sung by flaming tongues above; praise the mount! I'm fixed upon it, mount of God's unchanging love.


2 Here I raise my Ebenezer; hither by thy help I'm come; and I hope, by thy good pleasure, safely to arrive at home.Jesus sought me when a stranger, wand'ring from the fold of God:he, to rescue me from danger, interposed his precious blood.


3 O to grace how great a debtordaily I'm constrained to be;let that grace now, like a fetter, bind my wand'ring heart to thee.Prone to wander – Lord, I feel it –prone to leave the God I love; here's my heart, O take and seal it, seal it for thy courts above.

 

Call To Confession 

Our Lord Jesus says, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ And also, ‘Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.’

 

"If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us... If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.” Let us, therefore, confess ours sins to the Lord, saying together:

1 John 1:8 (NKJV)


Confession of Sins 

Almighty and Gracious Father, we confess to you that we have sinned by not loving you with our whole heart and by not loving our neighbor as ourselves. Our faith is weak, and we easily give in to doubt. Forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness in thought, word and deed. For we ask this in the name of your Son, who is our sure Redeemer and our Savior. Amen.

 

Word of Assurance 

Brothers and Sisters in Jesus, our Gracious Heavenly Father has forgiven us our sins according to His word that "He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins."

Colossians 1:13–14

 

Doxology # 731 

Praise God from whom all blessings flow;

praise him, all creatures here below;

praise him above, ye heav'nly host;

praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.


Scripture Lesson: Philippians 2:12-13

12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; 13 for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.


Sermon

 

Hymn # 532 Teach me, O Lord, Thy Holy Way

1 Teach me, O Lord, thy holy wayand give me an obedient mind;that in thy service I may findmy soul's delight from day to day.


2 Guide me, O Savior, with thy hand,and so control my thoughts and deeds,that I may tread the path which leadsright onward to the blessed land.


3 Help me, O Savior, here to tracethe sacred footsteps thou hast trod;and, meekly walking with my God,to grow in goodness, truth, and grace.


4 Guard me, O Lord, that I may ne'erforsake the right, or do the wrong:against temptation make me strong,and round me spread thy shelt'ring care.


5 Bless me in ev'ry task, O Lord, begun, continued, done for thee: fulfill thy perfect work in me; and thine abounding grace afford.

Prayer of the Church with the Lord’s Prayer

 

Let us pray together as Jesus taught us: 

“Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory forever. Amen.”


Hymn # 461 Not What My Hands Have Done

1 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.


2 Thy work alone, O Christ, can ease this weight of sin; thy blood alone, O Lamb of God, can give me peace within.Thy love to me, O God, not mine, O Lord to thee, can rid me of this dark unrest, and set my spirit free.


3 Thy grace alone, O God, to me can pardon speak; thy pow'r alone, O Son of God, can this sore bondage break. No other work, save thine, no other blood will do;no strength, save that which is divine, can bear me safely through.


4 I bless the Christ of God; I rest on love divine; and with unfalt'ring lip and heart, I call this Savior mine.His cross dispels each doubt; I bury in his tomb each thought of unbelief and fear, each ling'ring shade of gloom.


5 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.'Tis he who saveth me, and freely pardon gives;I love because he loveth me, I live because he lives.


Benediction
