We Come, O Christ, To You (Clarkson & Lee)
Psalm 62 (Keyes & Townend)
Call to Confession: Matthew 7:12-14
“So whatever you wish that others would do to you,
do also to them,
for this is the Law and the Prophets.
Enter by the narrow gate.
For the gate is wide and the way is easy
that leads to destruction,
and those who enter by it are many.
For the gate is narrow
and the way is hard that leads to life,
and those who find it are few.”
Judge of the Secrets (Fournier)
Gospel & Thanksgiving
Assurance of Pardon: Romans 8:1-4
There is therefore now no condemnation
for those who are in Christ Jesus.
For the law of the Spirit of life
has set you free in Christ Jesus
from the law of sin and death.
For God has done what the law,
weakened by the flesh, could not do.
By sending his own Son
in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin,
he condemned sin in the flesh,
In order that the righteous requirement of the law
might be fulfilled in us,
who walk not according to the flesh
but according to the Spirit.
And Can it Be (Campbell & Wesley)
Sermon Text: Romans 14:13-19
Therefore let us not pass judgment on one another any longer,
but rather decide never to put a stumbling block
or hindrance in the way of a brother.
I know and am persuaded in the Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean in itself,
but it is unclean for anyone who thinks it unclean.
For if your brother is grieved by what you eat,
you are no longer walking in love.
By what you eat,
do not destroy the one for whom Christ died.
So do not let what you regard as good
be spoken of as evil.
For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking
but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
Whoever thus serves Christ is acceptable to God
and approved by men.
So then let us pursue what makes for peace
and for mutual upbuilding.
