All Who are Thirsty (Brown and Robertson)

Adoration & Praise

This is Our God (Fournier, Plank, Romance, Degraide, and Jones)

Be Unto Your Name (DeShazo and Sadler)

Confession

Scripture Reading: Isaiah 64:1-9

"Oh that you would rend the heavens and come down, 
that the mountains might quake at your presence— 
as when fire kindles brushwood 
and the fire causes water to boil— 
to make your name known to your adversaries, 
and that the nations might tremble at your presence! 
 
When you did awesome things that we did not look for, 
you came down, the mountains quaked at your presence. 
From of old no one has heard
or perceived by the ear, 
no eye has seen a God besides you, 
who acts for those who wait for him.
 
You meet him who joyfully works righteousness, 
those who remember you in your ways. 
Behold, you were angry, and we sinned; 
in our sins we have been a long time, and shall we be saved?
We have all become like one who is unclean, 
and all our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment. 
 
We all fade like a leaf, 
and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.
There is no one who calls upon your name, 
who rouses himself to take hold of you; 
for you have hidden your face from us, 
and have made us melt in the hand of our iniquities. 
 
But now, O Lord, you are our Father; 
we are the clay, and you are our potter; 
we are all the work of your hand. 
Be not so terribly angry, O Lord, 
and remember not iniquity forever. 
Behold, please look, we are all your people."

 

Not What My Hands Have Done (Bonar and Martin)

Gospel & Thanksgiving

Scripture Reading: Ezekiel 36:22-27

“Therefore say to the house of Israel,
 
Thus says the Lord God:
It is not for your sake, O house of Israel,
that I am about to act,
but for the sake of my holy name,
which you have profaned among the nations to which you came.
 
And I will vindicate the holiness of my great name,
which has been profaned among the nations,
and which you have profaned among them.
And the nations will know that I am the Lord,
declares the Lord God,
when through you I vindicate my holiness
before their eyes.
 
I will take you from the nations
and gather you from all the countries
and bring you into your own land.
I will sprinkle clean water on you,
and you shall be clean from all your uncleannesses, and from all your idols I will cleanse you.
And I will give you a new heart,
and a new spirit I will put within you.
 
And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh
and give you a heart of flesh.
And I will put my Spirit within you,
and cause you to walk in my statutes
and be careful to obey my rules."

 

Christ is Risen (Fieldes, and Maher)

Word

Sermon Text: Zechariah 3:1-10

"Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord,
and Satan standing at his right hand to accuse him.
And the Lord said to Satan, “The Lord rebuke you, O Satan!
The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you!
Is not this a brand plucked from the fire?”
 
Now Joshua was standing before the angel,
clothed with filthy garments.
And the angel said to those who were standing before him,
“Remove the filthy garments from him.”
And to him he said, “Behold, I have taken your iniquity away from you,
and I will clothe you with pure vestments.”
And I said, “Let them put a clean turban on his head.”
So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him with garments.
And the angel of the Lord was standing by. 
 
And the angel of the Lord solemnly assured Joshua,
“Thus says the Lord of hosts: If you will walk in my ways and keep my charge,
then you shall rule my house and have charge of my courts,
and I will give you the right of access among those who are standing here.
Hear now, O Joshua the high priest,
you and your friends who sit before you,
for they are men who are a sign:
behold, I will bring my servant the Branch.
 
For behold, on the stone that I have set before Joshua,
on a single stone with seven eyes,
I will engrave its inscription, declares the Lord of hosts,
and I will remove the iniquity of this land in a single day.
In that day, declares the Lord of hosts,
every one of you will invite his neighbor to come under his vine
and under his fig tree.'"
