O Great God (Kauflin)
Scripture Reading: Deuteronomy 6:10-12
“And when the Lord your God brings you into the land that he
swore to your fathers,
to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give you
—with great and good cities that you did not build,
and houses full of all good things that you did not fill,
and cisterns that you did not dig,
and vineyards and olive trees that you did not plant
—and when you eat and are full,
then take care lest you forget the Lord,
who brought you out of the land of Egypt,
out of the house of slavery."
We come to you today as deeply forgetful people.
You have been so much better to us than we deserve,
Faithfully fulfilling your commitment to give us good things
Yet we quickly forget all the wonderful gifts you have already
We doubt your goodness and power many times each day,
And resent the race of obedience that you call us to run.
Father, forgive us.
Jesus, thank you for remembering the truth faithfully on our behalf.
You worshiped your Father daily, with unwavering faith and
unshakable hope in his goodness.
Cherishing the Father’s unchangeable character, you
submitted to his perfect wisdom,
Even when it was most painful.
Now your obedience becomes our strong encouragement to
hope in the midst of continuing weakness.
Holy Spirit, we need your power at work in us to stir up our hope,
Knowing the certainty of God’s great love for us.
Open our lips to join the heavenly worship service,
And help us look forward to the triumphant coming of our heavenly king.
My Help, My God (McCracken)
Gospel & Thanksgiving
Scripture Reading: 2 Timothy 2:8-9, 19
"Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead,
the offspring of David, as preached in my gospel,
for which I am suffering, bound with chains as a criminal.
But the word of God is not bound!
But God's firm foundation stands, bearing this seal:
“The Lord knows those who are his,” and,
“Let everyone who names the name of the Lord
depart from iniquity.”
Amazing Grace (Excell, Newton, and Rees)
Sermon Text: Romans 8:34
"Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died,
more than that, who was raised --
who is at the right hand of God,
who indeed is interceding for us."
