Call to Confession: Hebrews 12:12-15
Therefore, lift your drooping hands
and strengthen your weak knees,
and make straight paths for your feet,
so that what is lame may not be put out of joint
but rather be healed.
Strive for peace with everyone,
and for the holiness without which
no one will see the Lord.
See to it that no one fails
to obtain the grace of God;
that no “root of bitterness” springs up
and causes trouble,
and by it many become defiled.
Lord I Need You (Carson, Maher, Nockels & Reeves)
Gospel & Thanksgiving
Assurance of Pardon: Hebrews 12:1-2
Therefore, since we are surrounded
by so great a cloud of witnesses,
let us also lay aside every weight,
and sin which clings so closely,
and let us run with endurance
the race that is set before us,
Looking to Jesus,
the founder and perfecter of our faith,
who for the joy that was set before him
endured the cross, despising the shame,
and is seated at the right hand
of the throne of God.
The Power of the Cross (Getty & Townend)
Sermon Text: Romans 15:1-4
We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of
the weak, and not to please ourselves.
Let each of us please his neighbor for his good,
to build him up.
For Christ did not please himself, but as it is written,
“The reproaches of those who reproached you fell on me.”
For whatever was written in former day
was written for our instruction,
that through endurance and through the encouragement
of the Scriptures we might have hope.
