Call to Confession: 1 Corinthians 13:1-6; 1 John 4:7-8
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels,
but have not love,
I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
And if I have prophetic powers,
and understand all mysteries and all knowledge,
and if I have all faith,
so as to remove mountains,
but have not love, I am nothing.
If I give away all I have,
and if I deliver up my body to be burned,
but have not love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient and kind;
love does not envy or boast;
it is not arrogant or rude.
It does not insist on its own way;
it is not irritable or resentful;
it does not rejoice at wrongdoing,
but rejoices with the truth.
Beloved, let us love one another,
for love is from God,
and whoever loves has been born of God
and knows God.
Anyone who does not love
does not know God,
because God is love.
Rock of Ages (Hastings & Toplady)
Gospel & Thanksgiving
Assurance of Pardon: 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, 10; 1 John 4:9-11
For I delivered to you as of first importance
what I also received:
That Christ died for our sins
in accordance with the Scriptures,
That he was buried,
that he was raised on the third day
In accordance with the Scriptures.
In this the love of God
was made manifest among us,
That God sent his only Son into the world,
so that we might live through him.
In this is love, not that we have loved God
but that he loved us and sent his Son
to be the propitiation for our sins.
Beloved, if God so loved us,
we also ought to love one another.
Nothing But the Blood (Lowry)
Sermon Text: Romans 14:19-23
So then let us pursue what makes for peace
and for mutual upbuilding.
Do not, for the sake of food,
destroy the work of God.
Everything is indeed clean,
but it is wrong for anyone to make another stumble
by what he eats.
It is good not to eat meat or drink wine
or do anything that causes your brother to stumble.
The faith that you have,
keep between yourself and God.
Blessed is the one who has no reason
to pass judgment on himself for what he approves.
But whoever has doubts is condemned if he eats,
because the eating is not from faith.
For whatever does not proceed from faith is sin.
