Call to Confession: Isaiah 1:16-18
Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth;
for the LORD has spoken:
Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean;
remove the evil of your deeds from before my eyes
cease to do evil,
learn to do good;
bring justice to the fatherless,
plead the widow’s cause.
Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD:
though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be white as snow;
though your sins are red like crimson,
they shall become like wool.
O Help My Unbelief (Watts)

Assurance of Pardon from 1 Timothy and 1 Peter
The saying is trustworthy
and deserving of full acceptance,
that Christ Jesus came into the world
to save sinners.
He himself bore our sins
in his body on the tree,
that we might die to sin
and live to righteousness.
By his wounds we have been healed.
O Love that Will Not Let me Go (Matheson)
Sermon Text: Romans 11:16-20
If the dough offered as firstfruits is holy,
so is the whole lump,
and if the root is holy,
so are the branches.
But if some of the branches were broken off,
and you, although a wild olive shoot,
were grafted in among the others
and now share in the nourishing root of the olive tree,
do not be arrogant toward the branches.
If you are, remember it is not you who support the root,
but the root that supports you.
Then you will say, “Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in.”
That is true.
They were broken off because of their unbelief,
but you stand fast through faith.
So do not become proud, but fear.
