Worthy Worthy (Fieldes and Sooter)
Scripture Reading: Deuteronomy 10:12-17
“And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God require of you,
but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all his ways,
to love him,
to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul,
and to keep the commandments and statutes of the Lord,
which I am commanding you today for your good?
Behold, to the Lord your God belong heaven and the heaven of heavens,
the earth with all that is in it.
Yet the Lord set his heart in love on your fathers and chose their offspring after them,
you above all peoples, as you are this day.
Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart,
and be no longer stubborn.
For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords,
the great, the mighty, and the awesome God,
who is not partial and takes no bribe."
Not in Me (Schumacher and Ward)
Gospel & Thanksgiving
Scripture Reading: Deuteronomy 7:6-9
“For you are a people holy to the Lord your God.
The Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for his treasured possession,
out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth.
It was not because you were more in number than any other people
that the Lord set his love on you and chose you,
for you were the fewest of all peoples,
but it is because the Lord loves you and is keeping the oath that he swore to your fathers,
that the Lord has brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the house of slavery,
from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.
Know therefore that the Lord your God is God,
the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love
with those who love him and keep his commandments,
to a thousand generations."
He Will Hold Me Fast (Habershon and Merker)
Sermon Text: 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."
