PREPARATION FOR WORSHIP

For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret,
whereas worldly grief produces death.

2 Corinthians 7:10 (ESV)

WELCOME & CALL TO WORSHIP


Psalm 32:1-5; 11  (ESV)

Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven,
    whose sin is covered.
2 Blessed is the man against whom the Lord counts no iniquity,
    and in whose spirit there is no deceit.
3 For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away
    through my groaning all day long.
4 For day and night your hand was heavy upon me;
    my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer. 
5 I acknowledged my sin to you,
    and I did not cover my iniquity;
I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”
    and you forgave the iniquity of my sin.

11 Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous,
    and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!

SONG

Better is One Day

[Verse 1]
How lovely is Your dwelling place
O Lord Almighty
My soul longs and even faints for You
For here my heart is satisfied
Within Your presence
I sing beneath the shadow of Your wings

[Chorus]
Better is one day in Your courts
Better is one day in Your house
Better is one day in Your courts
Than thousands elsewhere

[Verse 2]
One thing I ask, and I would seek
To see Your beauty
To find You in the place Your glory dwells

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
My heart and flesh cry out
For You, the Living God
Your Spirit’s water for my soul
I’ve tasted and I’ve seen
Come once again to me
I will draw near to You
I will draw near to You

[Chorus]

SONG

King of Kings

[Verse 1]
In the darkness we were waiting
Without hope, without light
Till from heaven You came running
There was mercy in Your eyes

To fulfill the law and prophets
To a virgin came the word
From a throne of endless glory
To a cradle in the dirt

[Chorus]
Praise the Father, praise the Son
Praise the Spirit, three in one
God of glory, Majesty
Praise forever to the King of Kings

[Verse 2]
To reveal the kingdom coming
And to reconcile the lost
To redeem the whole creation
You did not despise the cross

For even in your suffering
You saw to the other side
Knowing this was our salvation
Jesus for our sake you died

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
And the morning that You rose
All of heaven held its breath
‘Til that stone was moved for good
For the Lamb had conquered death

And the dead rose from their tombs
And the angels stood in awe
For the souls of all who’d come
To the Father are restored

And the Church of Christ was born
Then the Spirit lit the flame
Now this gospel truth of old
Shall not kneel, shall not faint

By His blood and in His name
In His freedom I am free
For the love of Jesus Christ
Who has resurrected me

[Chorus]

SCRIPTURE READING

Luke 18:9-14 (ESV)

9 He also told this parable
         to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous,
         and treated others with contempt:

10 “Two men went up into the temple to pray,
      one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.

11 The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus:
         ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men,
         extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector.
12 I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I get.’

13 But the tax collector, standing far off,
         would not even lift up his eyes to heaven,
         but beat his breast, saying,
‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’

14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other.
         For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled,
         but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”

SONG

Draw Me Nearer (I am Thine, O Lord)

[Verse 1]
I am Thine, O Lord, I have heard Thy voice
And it told Thy love to me
But I long to rise in the arms of faith
And be closer drawn to Thee

[Chorus]
Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed Lord
To the cross where Thou hast died
Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed Lord
To Thy precious, bleeding side

[Verse 2]
Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord
By the power of grace divine
Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope
And my will be lost in Thine

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
Oh, the pure delight of a single hour
That before Thy throne I spend
When I kneel in prayer, and with Thee, my God
I commune as friend with friend! 

[Chorus]

[Verse 4]
There are depths of love that I cannot know
Till I cross the narrow sea
There are heights of joy that I may not reach
Till I rest in peace with Thee

[Chorus]

SERMON

“Cut to the Heart”


Acts 2:36-41
 (ESV)

36 Let all the house of Israel therefore know for certain
that God has made him both Lord and Christ,
this Jesus whom you crucified.”

37 Now when they heard this they were cut to the heart,
and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles,
“Brothers, what shall we do?”

38 And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you
in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins,
and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

39 For the promise is for you and for your children
and for all who are far off,
everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.”

40 And with many other words he bore witness
and continued to exhort them, saying,
“Save yourselves from this crooked generation.”

41 So those who received his word were baptized,
and there were added that day about three thousand souls.

SONG

Lord I Need You

[Verse 1]
Lord I come, I confess
Bowing here, I find my rest
Without You, I fall apart
You’re the one that guides my heart

[Chorus]
Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour, I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You

[Verse 2]
Where sin runs deep,
Your grace is more
Where grace is found is where You are
And where You are Lord, I am free
Holiness is Christ in me

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
So teach my song to rise to You
When temptation comes my way
When I cannot stand, I’ll fall on You
Jesus, You’re my hope and stay

[Chorus]

BENEDICTION


Matthew 9:11-13
(ESV)

11 … the Pharisees… said to his disciples,
“Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” 

12 But when he heard it, he said,
“Those who are well have no need of a physician,
but those who are sick. 

13 Go and learn what this means:
‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.’
For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.”
