Worship Service for July 30, 2023

Welcome

Call to Worship Oh, clap your hands, all you peoples!

Shout to God with the voice of triumph!

For the Lord Most High is awesome;

He is a great King over all the earth.

Psalm 47:1–2 (NKJV)

Hymn Behold Our God (insert)


1 Who has given counsel to the Lord?

Who can question any of his words?

Who can teach the One who knows all things?

Who can fathom all His wondrous deeds?


Chorus

Behold our God, seated on His throne; come let us adore Him!

Behold our King! Nothing can compare; come, let us adore Him!


2 Who has held the oceans in His hands?

Who has numbered every grain of sand?

Kings and nations tremble at His voice;

all creation rises to rejoice!


3 Who has felt the nails upon His hands,

bearing all the guilt of sinful man?

God eternal, humbled to the grave;

Jesus, Savior, risen now to reign!


Call To Confession


Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.

Romans 12:9–14 (NKJV):



Out of the depths I have cried to You, O Lord;

Lord, hear my voice!

Let Your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.

If You, Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand?

But there is forgiveness with You that You may be feared.

Psalm 130:1–4 (NKJV)


Confession of Sins


Let us, therefore, confess our sin, saying together:


Merciful Heavenly Father, pardon us our many sins; the sins we know and the sins hidden from our conscience. Cleanse us from wrong motives and forgive us for feeble obedience. By your Spirit renew our hearts to love you, our minds to know you, and our wills to obey you. For we ask this mercy in the name of your Son who shed his blood for us. Amen.


Word of Assurance


God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.

Romans 5:8–9 (NKJV)


Song of Renewal


My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;

I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

On Christ the solid rock I stand; all other ground is sinking sand, all other ground is sinking sand.

Trinity Hymnal # 521, stanza 1


Scripture Lesson:


Titus 3:1–7 (NKJV):

1 Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities, to obey, to be ready for every good work,

2 to speak evil of no one, to be peaceable, gentle, showing all humility to all men.

3 For we ourselves were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful and hating one another.

4 But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared,

5 not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit,

6 whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior,

7 that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.


Sermon


Hymn # 563 What Kind of Man Can Live in the World


1 What kind of man can live in the world where God lives?

One who in action is right and whose conduct is blameless;

one who can speak the truth in his heart at all times;

one who obeys all that God in his love has taught us.


2 What kind of man can speak in the world where God speaks?

One who can say what is true but avoid speaking slander;

one who will work the good of his friends and neighbors;

one who supports men of God in contempt of evil.


3 What kind of man can rule in the world where God rules?

One who will swear to his hurt but abide by his promise;

one who will use his wealth to relieve the needy;

he who accomplishes this is secure forever.


Prayer of the Church and the Lord’s Prayer


“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 # 587 Who Is on the Lord's Side?

1 Who is on the Lord's side? Who will serve the King? Who will be his helpers, other lives to bring? Who will leave the world's side? Who will face the foe? Who is on the Lord's side? Who for him will go? By thy call of mercy, by thy grace divine, we are on the Lord's side, Savior, we are thine.


2 Not for weight of glory, not for crown and palm, enter we the army, raise the warrior psalm; but for Love that claimeth lives for whom he died: he whom Jesus nameth must be on his side. By thy love constraining, by thy grace divine, we are on the Lord's side, Savior, we are thine.


3 Jesus, thou has bought us, not with gold or gem, but with thine own life-blood for thy diadem: with thy blessing filling each who comes to thee, thou hast made us willing, thou has made us free. By thy grand redemption, by thy grace divine, we are on the Lord's side, Savior, we are thine.


4 Fierce may be the conflict, strong may be the foe,

but the King's own army none can overthrow:

round his standard ranging, vict'ry is secure;

for his truth unchanging makes the triumph sure.

Joyfully enlisting by thy grace divine,

we are on the Lord's side, Savior, we are thine.


Benediction
