Worship Service for March 10, 2024

Welcome

 

Call to Worship

Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised;

And His greatness is unsearchable.

Psalm 145:3


Hymn # 17 Praise the Lord: Ye Heavens Adore Him

 

1 Praise the Lord: ye heav'ns, adore him;

praise him, angels, in the height;

sun and moon, rejoice before him;

praise him all ye stars and light.

Praise the Lord, for he hath spoken;

worlds his mighty voice obeyed:

laws which never shall be broken

for their guidance hath he made.


2 Praise the Lord, for he is glorious;

never shall his promise fail:

God hath made his saints victorious;

sin and death shall not prevail.

Praise the God of our salvation;

hosts on high, his pow'r proclaim;

heav'n and earth and all creation,

laud and magnify his name.


3 Worship, honor, glory, blessing,

Lord, we offer unto thee;

young and old, thy praise expressing,

in glad homage bend the knee.

All the saints in heav'n adore thee;

we would bow before thy throne:

as thine angels serve before thee,

so on earth thy will be done.

 

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 3:1-11


1 Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. For me to write the same things to you is not tedious, but for you it is safe.


2 Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the mutilation! 3 For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh, 4 though I also might have confidence in the flesh. If anyone else thinks he may have confidence in the flesh, I more so: 5 circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of the Hebrews; concerning the law, a Pharisee; 6 concerning zeal, persecuting the church; concerning the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.


7 But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. 8 Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ 9 and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; 10 that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, 11 if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.


Sermon


Hymn – Come, People of the Risen King

 

1 Come, people of the Risen King

Who delight to bring Him praise

Come all and tune your hearts to sing

To the Morning Star of grace

From the shifting shadows of the earth

We will lift our eyes to Him

Where steady arms of mercy reach

To gather children in

 

Refrain

Rejoice, rejoice! Let ev’ry tongue rejoice!

One heart, one voice; oh Church of Christ, rejoice!

 

2 Come, those whose joy is morning sun

And those weeping through the night

Come, those who tell of battles won

And those struggling in the fight

For His perfect love will never change

And His mercies never cease

But follow us through all our days

With the certain hope of peace

[Refrain]

 

3 Come, young and old from ev’ry land

Men and women of the faith

Come, those with full or empty hands

Find the riches of His grace

Over all the world, His people sing

Shore to shore we hear them call

The Truth that cries through ev’ry age:

"Our God is all in all"!

[Refrain]

 

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 # 310 Rejoice, the Lord Is King


1 Rejoice, the Lord is King:

your Lord and King adore!

Rejoice, give thanks, and sing,

and triumph evermore.


Refrain

Lift up your heart, lift up your voice!

Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!


2 Jesus the Savior reigns,

the God of truth and love;

when he had purged our stains,

he took his seat above.

[Refrain]


3 His kingdom cannot fail,

he rules o'er earth and heav'n;

the keys of death and hell

are to our Jesus giv'n.

[Refrain]


4 He sits at God's right hand

till all his foes submit,

and bow to his command,

and fall beneath his feet.

[Refrain]


5 Rejoice in glorious hope!

Our Lord, the Judge, shall come,

and take his servants up

to their eternal home.

[Refrain]


Benediction
