The Order of Worship

 


The Call to Worship

Isaiah 44:6-8

 

Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts: “I am the first and I am the last; besides me there is no god. Who is like me? Let him proclaim it. Let him declare and set it before me, since I appointed an ancient people. Let them declare what is to come, and what will happen. Fear not, nor be afraid; have I not told you from of old and declared it? And you are my witnesses! Is there a God besides me? There is no Rock; I know not any.”

Confession of Faith

The Apostle's Creed
 

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.
 

And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord. Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. He descended into hell, the third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty. From thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead.
 

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy universal church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
 

Amen.
 

Covenantal Prayer

Assurance

ALMIGHTY GOD,

 

I am loved with everlasting love, clothed in eternal righteousness, my peace flowing like a river, my comforts many and large, my joy and triumph unutterable, my soul lively with a knowledge of salvation, my sense of justification unclouded. 

 

I have scarce anything to pray for; Jesus smiles upon my soul as a ray of heaven and my supplications are swallowed up in praise.

 

How sweet is the glorious doctrine of election when based upon thy Word and wrought inwardly within the soul! I bless thee that thou wilt keep the sinner thou hast loved, and hast engaged that he will not forsake thee, else I would never get to heaven. 

I wrong the work of grace in my heart if I deny my new nature and my eternal life.

 

If Jesus were not my righteousness and redemption, I would sink into nethermost hell by my misdoings, shortcomings, unbelief, unlove; If Jesus were not by the power of his Spirit my sanctification, there is no sin I should not commit.

 

O when shall I have his mind! when shall I be conformed to his image? All the good things of life are less than nothing when compared with his love, and with one glimpse of thy electing favor.

 

All the treasures of a million worlds could not make me richer, happier, more contented, for his unsearchable riches are mine.

 

One moment of communion with him, one view of his grace, is ineffable, inestimable.

 

But O God, I could not long after thy presence if I did not know the sweetness of it; And such I could not know except by thy Spirit in my heart, nor love thee at all unless thou didst elect me, call me, adopt me, save me. 

 

I bless thee for the covenant of grace.

 

Amen.

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.

 

Amen.

Sermon
Hebrews 3:1-19

The Exodus Generation

Therefore, holy brothers, you who share in a heavenly calling,consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession,2 who was faithful to him who appointed him, just as Moses alsowas faithful in all God’s house. 3 For Jesus has been countedworthy of more glory than Moses—as much more glory as thebuilder of a house has more honor than the house itself. 4 (Forevery house is built by someone, but the builder of all things isGod.) 5 Now Moses was faithful in all God’s house as a servant, totestify to the things that were to be spoken later, 6 but Christ isfaithful over God’s house as a son. And we are his house, if indeedwe hold fast our confidence and our boasting in our hope.

7 Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says,

“Today, if you hear his voice,

8  do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion,

on the day of testing in the wilderness,

9  where your fathers put me to the test

and saw my works for forty years.

10  Therefore I was provoked with that generation,

and said, ‘They always go astray in their heart;

they have not known my ways.’

11  As I swore in my wrath,

‘They shall not enter my rest.’”

12 Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil,unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God.13 But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,”that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. 14 Forwe have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our originalconfidence firm to the end. 15 As it is said,

“Today, if you hear his voice,

do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”

16 For who were those who heard and yet rebelled? Was it not allthose who left Egypt led by Moses? 17 And with whom was heprovoked for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whosebodies fell in the wilderness? 18 And to whom did he swear thatthey would not enter his rest, but to those who were disobedient?19 So we see that they were unable to enter because of unbelief.
