Veritas Gathered: Liturgy Recap – March 23rd, 2014

Welcome to the recap of the songs, hymns and spiritual song of the Veritas worship gathering on March 23rd, 2014.

Song: “Everything is Yours” by Liz Vice

Reading: Call to Worship

L: Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; His greatness no one can fathom. One generation will tell of Your works to another; they speak of Your mighty acts and proclaim Your faithfulness. Together, we celebrate the glorious splendor of Your majesty—and we will meditate on Your wonderful works. We tell of the power of Your awesome works—and we will proclaim Your great deeds. 
C: We will join with all generations as we celebrate Your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of Your righteousness.
—Adapted from Psalm 145:3-7

Song: “Holy, Holy, Holy” by Reginald Herber

Reading: Confession/Assurance

L: Jesus, my Savior, help me to wait patiently, silently upon you, knowing that you alone can satisfy my feeble heart. Let your mercy follow me while I live, call me to repentance, and give me aid to resign myself to your will. 
C: Take my heart and mold it into your likeness. Write upon it a reverence and love for you with an inscription that time and eternity cannot erase. 
L: To your grace and your covenant I commit myself, for you have overcome the world, fulfilled the law, finished justifying righteousness, swallowed up death in victory, and taken all power everywhere.
C: I confess my continual need for your grace and rejoice in the vast depths of Your mercy in which I find peace and restoration!

Song: “God Is Good” by Dustin Kensrue

Song: “Hallelujah What A Savior” by Philip Paul Bliss

Reading: Commitment

L: Let us lay aside every weight and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, defeating death, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
C: Father God, keep us from looking to the world for fulfillment. Instead, give us strength to continually look to Jesus’ life for guidance in living out our mission and purpose. 
L: By Your Spirit’s work in our hearts, give us the faith and courage to live in the radical, joy-producing, grace-filled way Jesus calls us to live.

C: Remind us of Your love and of Your kingdom that we have been brought into. May we go from this gathering and boldly live out our mission to proclaim Jesus as Savior, Redeemer and King.
– Based on Hebrews 12

Song: “The Love of God” by Frederick M. Lehman and Meir Ben Isaac Nehorai

Benediction:

Hear this benediction as we go:

L: Go from here with the assurance that God, who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to His Spirit’s power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Peace be with you. 
C: And also with you.
