CALL TO WORSHIP

PSALM 11

The Lord Is in His Holy Temple. To the choirmaster. Of David.

1 In the Lord I take refuge; how can you say to my soul,
“Flee like a bird to your mountain,
2 for behold, the wicked bend the bow; they have fitted their arrow to the string
to shoot in the dark at the upright in heart;
3 if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?”
4 The Lord is in his holy temple; the Lord’s throne is in heaven;
his eyes see, his eyelids test, the children of man.
5 The Lord tests the righteous,
but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence.
6 Let him rain coals on the wicked;
fire and sulfur and a scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup.
7 For the Lord is righteous; he loves righteous deeds;
the upright shall behold his face.

 

PRAISE & WORSHIP

GIVE US CLEAN HANDS by Charlie Hall

view on youtube

We bow our hearts, we bend our knees;
O Spirit, come make us humble.
We turn our eyes from evil things;
O Lord; we cast down our idols.

Give us clean hands, give us pure hearts,
Let us not lift our soul to another. (Repeat)

O God, let us be a generation that seeks,
that seeks your face, O God of Jacob! (Repeat)

PRAISE YOU IN THIS STORM by Casting Crowns

view on youtube

I was sure by now, God, you would have reached down
And wiped our tears away, stepped in and saved the day.
But once again, I say, “Amen!” That it’s still raining.
As the thunder rolls
I barely hear your whisper through the rain: “I’m with you!”
And as your mercy falls I raise my hands and praise
The God who gives and takes away.

And I’ll praise you in this storm and I will lift my hands!
That you are who you are, no matter where I am,
And every tear I’ve cried, you hold in your hand.
You never left my side. I will praise you in this storm!
And though my heart is torn, I will praise you in this storm.

I remember when I stumbled in the wind—
You heard my cry, you raised me up again.
My strength is almost gone! How can I carry on, if I can’t find you?

I lift my eyes unto the hills; Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth.

THIS IS AMAZING GRACE

view on youtube

Who breaks the power of sin and darkness?
Whose love is mighty and so much stronger?
The King of Glory, the King above all kings,
Who shakes the whole earth with holy thunder
And leaves us breathless in awe and wonder!
The King of Glory, the King above all kings!

This is amazing grace, this is unfailing love
That You would take my place, that You would bear my cross.
You lay down Your life that I would be set free.
Oh, Jesus, I sing for all that You’ve done for me.

Who brings our chaos back into order?
Who makes the orphan a son and daughter?
The King of Glory, the King of Glory!
Who rules the nations with truth and justice?
Shines like the sun in all of its brilliance?
The King of Glory, the King above all kings!

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain!
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave!
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain!
Worthy, worthy, worthy!

YOUR GRACE IS ENOUGH by Chris Tomlin & Matt Maher

view on youtube

Great is Your faithfulness, oh God!
You wrestle with the sinner’s restless heart,
You lead us by still waters into mercy,
And nothing can keep us apart.

So remember Your people, remember Your children,
Remember Your promise, Oh God!

Your grace is enough, your grace is enough,
Your grace is enough for me.

Great is Your love and justice, God of Jacob;
You use the weak to lead the strong.
You lead us in the song of Your salvation
And all Your people sing along.

Your grace is enough, Heaven reaches out to us.
Your grace is enough for me.
God, I sing, “Your grace is enough.”
I’m covered in your love. Your grace is enough for me, for me!

SERMON NOTES

ONE BIG IDEA

Our sin separates us from our God. 

1) We are constantly tempted with a choice:
God-centered desires or self-centered desires. 

2) Sin has dire consequences. 

3) Sin overwhelms, but grace overcomes. 

 

RESPONSE TO THE PREACHED WORD

WHERE HE LEADS ME (HYMN 384)

view on youtube

I can hear my Savior calling,
I can hear my Savior calling,
I can hear my Savior calling,
“Take thy cross and follow, follow Me.”

Where He leads me I will follow,
Where He leads me I will follow,
Where He leads me I will follow;
I’ll go with Him, with Him, all the way.

I’ll go with Him through the garden,
I’ll go with Him through the garden,
I’ll go with Him through the garden,
I’ll go with Him, with Him all the way.

I’ll go with Him through the judgment,
I’ll go with Him through the judgment,
I’ll go with Him through the judgment,
I’ll go with Him, with Him all the way.

He will give me grace and glory,
He will give me grace and glory,
He will give me grace and glory,
And go with me, with me all the way.

 

CONGREGATIONAL PRAYER

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

 

AMAZING LOVE (YOU ARE MY KING) by Billy Foote

view on youtube

I’m forgiven because you were forsaken;
I’m accepted, you were condemned;
I’m alive and well—your spirit lives within me
Because you died and rose again.

Amazing love! How can it be That you, my king, would die for me?
Amazing love—I know it’s true And it’s my joy to honor you:
In all I do I honor you.

You are my king! You are my king!
Jesus, You are my king. Jesus, You are my king.

BENEDICTION

 

MEDITATION

During this season of Lent, with permission, we are publishing prayers from The Valley of Vision, edited by Arthur Bennett (Banner of Truth Trust, 1975).

EVERLASTING CREATOR-FATHER,
I have destroyed myself, my nature is defiled, the powers of my soul are degraded;
I am vile, miserable, strengthless, but my hope is in thee.

If ever I am saved it will be by goodness undeserved and astonishing,
not by mercy alone but by abundant mercy,
not by grace but by exceeding riches of grace;

And such thou hast revealed, promised, exemplified
in thoughts of peace, not of evil.

Thou hast devised means to rescue me from sin’s perdition,
to restore me to happiness, honour, safety.

I bless thee for the everlasting covenant,
for the appointment of a Mediator.

I rejoice that he failed not, nor was discouraged, 
but accomplished the work thou gavest him  to do;
and said on the cross, ‘It is finished.’

I exult in the thought that thy justice is satisfied, thy truth established,
thy law magnified, and a foundation is laid for my hope.

I look to a present and personal interest in Christ and say,
“Surely he has borne my griefs, carried my sorrows,
won my peace, healed my soul.

Justified by his blood I am saved by his life,
glorying in his cross I bow to his sceptre,
having his Spirit I possess his mind.”

Lord, grant that my religion may not be occasional and partial,
but universal, influential, effective,
and may I always continue in thy words
as well as thy works,
so that I may reach my end in peace.
