Call to Confession: Micah 6:6-8
“With what shall I come before the LORD,
and bow myself before God on high?
Shall I come before him with burnt offerings,
with calves a year old?
Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams,
with ten thousands of rivers of oil?
Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression,
the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?”
He has told you, O man, what is good;
and what does the LORD require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?
Come, Ye Sinners, Poor and Needy (Hart)
Gospel & Thanksgiving
Assurance of Pardon: Micah 7:18-19
Who is a God like you, pardoning iniquity
and passing over transgression
for the remnant of his inheritance?
He does not retain his anger forever,
because he delights in steadfast love.
He has had compassion on us;
he has tread our iniquities underfoot.
You have cast all our sins
into the depths of the sea.
His Mercy is More (Boswell and Papa)
Sermon Text: Romans 11:25-27
"Lest you be wise in your own sight,
I do not want you to be unaware of this mystery, brothers:
a partial hardening has come upon Israel,
until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.
And in this way all Israel will be saved,
as it is written,
“The Deliverer will come from Zion,
he will banish ungodliness from Jacob”;
“and this will be my covenant with them
when I take away their sins."
I Will Not be Shaken (Park and Walker)
