CALL TO WORSHIP

PSALM 5:1-8
Lead Me in Your Righteousness!
To the choirmaster: for the flutes. A Psalm of David.

1 Give ear to my words, O Lord;
consider my groaning.
2 Give attention to the sound of my cry,
my King and my God,
for to you do I pray.
3 O Lord, in the morning you hear my voice;
in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch.

4 For you are not a God who delights in wickedness;
evil may not dwell with you.
5 The boastful shall not stand before your eyes;
you hate all evildoers.
6 You destroy those who speak lies;
the Lord abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.

7 But through the abundance of your steadfast love,
I will enter your house.
I will bow down toward your holy temple
in the fear of you.
8 Lead me, O Lord, in your righteousness
because of my enemies;
make your way straight before me.

 

PRAISE & WORSHIP

LORD, I LIFT YOUR NAME ON HIGH by Rick Founds

Lord, I lift Your name on high. (echo)
Lord, I love to sing Your praises. (echo)
I’m so glad You’re in my life. (echo)
I’m so glad You came to save us. (echo to save us)

You came from heaven to earth to show the way,
From the earth to the cross my debt to pay,
From the cross to the grave, from the grave to the sky!
Lord, I lift Your name on high.

GLORY AND HONOR by Twila Paris
We are the servants of the only King.
He is worthy,
Given dominion over ev’rything. He is worthy!
We will declare it with one voice,
We will stand up and make a holy noise,
And make a holy noise.

Glory and honor, glory and power,
Glory and honor unto the Lamb!
Glory and honor, glory forever,
Glory and honor unto the Lamb!

We offer Him a sacrificial praise. He is worthy!
No one among us is above His grace. He is worthy!
We will declare it with one voice:
He has become the reason we rejoice,
The reason we rejoice.

Glory honor and power be to the Lamb of God forever and ever!
Glory honor and power be to the Lamb forever!

The Son of Heaven who would die for us, He is worthy!
Eternal Word of God alive in us, He is worthy!
We will declare it with one voice,
We will declare that we have made our choice,
And make a holy noise.

 

YOU ARE MY VISION by Rend Collective
You are my vision, O king of my heart!
Nothing else satisfies, only You, Lord.
You are my best thought by day or by night—
Waking or sleeping, Your presence, my light.

You are my wisdom, You are my true word,
I ever with You, and You with me, Lord.
You’re my great Father, and I’m Your true son;
You dwell inside me, together we’re one.

You are my battle-shield, sword for the fight.
You are my dignity, You’re my delight.
You’re my soul’s shelter and You’re my high tower.
Come, raise me heavenward, O Power of my power!

I don’t want riches or a man’s empty praise;
You’re my inheritance, now and always.
You and You only, the first in my heart,
High king of heaven, my treasure You are.

High king of heaven, when victory’s won
May I reach heaven’s joy, O bright heaven’s Son!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my vision, O ruler of all.

 

MINISTRY OF THE WORD

Scripture Reading: Isaiah 56:1-8

Sermon: Repentance, Compassion, Holiness
Deuteronomy 21-25

 

ONE BIG IDEA
Righteousness is to be the theme of our lives,
our relationships, and our interactions. 

1) Repentance brings healing. 

2) God’s grace and compassion are for all. 

3) God desires our complete holiness.

 

RESPONSE TO THE PREACHED WORD

GLORIFY THY NAME  by Donna Adkins
Father, we love You, we worship and adore you,
glorify Thy name in all the earth.
Glorify Thy name, glorify Thy name,
glorify Thy name in all the earth.

Jesus, we love You, we worship and adore you,
glorify Thy name in all the earth.
Glorify Thy name, glorify Thy name,
glorify Thy name in all the earth.

Spirit, we love You, we worship and adore you,
glorify Thy name in all the earth.
Glorify Thy name, glorify Thy name,
glorify Thy name in all the earth.

CONGREGATIONAL PRAYER

Feel free to respond in prayer, aloud or silently, as the Lord leads.

 

VICTORY IN JESUS (HYMN 496) by E.M. Bartlett, 1939
I heard an old, old story,
how a Savior came from glory,
How He gave His life on Calvary
to save a wretch like me;
I heard about His groaning,
of His precious blood’s atoning,
Then I repented of my sins
and won the victory.

O victory in Jesus, my Savior, forever!
He sought me and bought me with His redeeming blood;
He loved me ere I knew Him and all my love is due Him,
He plunged me to victory, beneath the cleansing flood.

I heard about His healing,
of His cleansing pow’r revealing.
How He made the lame to walk again
and caused the blind to see;
And then I cried, “Dear Jesus,
come and heal my broken spirit,”
And somehow Jesus came
and brought to me the victory.

I heard about a mansion
He has built for me in glory.
And I heard about the streets of gold
eyond the crystal sea;
About the angels singing,
and the old redemption story,
And some sweet day I’ll sing up there
the song of victory.
