O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing (Wesley)
Call to Confession from James 3 & 4
The tongue is a small member,
yet it boasts of great things.
How great a forest is set ablaze
by such a small fire!
And the tongue is a fire,
a world of unrighteousness.
The tongue is set among our members,
staining the whole body,
setting on fire the entire course of life,
and set on fire by hell.
With it we bless our Lord and Father,
and with it we curse people
who are made in the likeness of God.
From the same mouth come blessing and cursing.
My brothers, these things ought not to be so.
Does a spring pour forth from the same opening
both fresh and salt water?
Can a fig tree, my brothers, bear olives,
or a grapevine produce figs?
Neither can a salt pond yield fresh water.
Humble yourselves before the Lord,
and he will exalt you.
Do not speak evil against one another, brothers.
There is only one lawgiver and judge,
he who is able to save and to destroy.
But who are you to judge your neighbor?
Judge of the Secrets (Fournier)
Gospel & Thanksgiving
Assurance of Pardon: Isaiah 6:4-7
And the foundations of the thresholds shook
at the voice of him who called,
and the house was filled with smoke.
And I said: “Woe is me! For I am lost;
for I am a man of unclean lips,
and I dwell in the midst of a people
of unclean lips;
for my eyes have seen the King,
the LORD of hosts!”
Then one of the seraphim flew to me,
having in his hand a burning coal
that he had taken with tongs from the altar.
And he touched my mouth and said:
“Behold, this has touched your lips;
your guilt is taken away,
and your sin atoned for.”
Jesus Thank You (Sczebel)
Sermon Text: Romans 10:9-13
"If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord
and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,
you will be saved.
For with the heart one believes and is justified,
and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.
For the Scripture says,
“Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.
For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek;
for the same Lord is Lord of all
bestowing his riches on all who call on him.
For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
