Worship Recap: Songs, Hymns and Spiritual Songs from March 10th, 2013
Welcome to the recap of the Veritas worship gathering on March 10th, 2013. Below are the songs and liturgy from our gathering.
Song: “Doxology” by: Louis Bourgeois and Thomas Ken
Reading: Call to Worship
L: Oh come, let us sing to the LORD; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!
C: For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
L: In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also. The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.
C: Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the LORD, our Maker!
This morning we gather with excitement and expectancy. Not because of tradition or because of obligation but rather because of what God has done for us through his Son. We have an opportunity and a place to gather together, continue our worship of Him, and to encourage one another!
Song: “King of Glory” by: Jesse Reeves and Chris Tomlin
Song: “Great Is Thy Faithfulness” by: Thomas Obediah Chisholm and William Marion Runyan
We bring nothing to the table, we are imperfect, broken people. Thankfully we have a father who is yearning for us to repent and turn back to Him. Our hearts must feel conviction of our sin, and confession of our sin. God is eager to forgive us and we can trust in his forgiveness and justification through faith. We can come to him and repent and He will forgive us! What a gif that is!
L: Most merciful God our Savior, our redeemer, we confess before you our brokenness, Even in our great need we have forgotten your provision. We have looked to other things to satisfy our hunger and thirst, we have doubted your power to protect us. Our ears have been deaf to your call; our hearts have been cold to your love.
C: Forgive our lack of faith; have mercy on our weakness. Restore in us trust and love that we may walk in your ways and delight in doing your will. May we seek refuge in the merciful arms of Jesus, our High Priest. Amen.
Song: “Come Ye Sinners” by: Joseph Hart and Jean Jacques Rousseau
Passing of the Peace:
Our Sermon this week was from Pastor Joel Workman from Romans 6: 15-23
Listen to the sermon online here.
Please read with me the underlined portion:
L: Jesus’ death brings us life and this meal reminds us that we are fed by Jesus and forgiven because of Jesus.
C: We rejoice that You have died, rose again, and are now with the Father advocating for us. Amen.
L: With our money, time, and talent we give generously, knowing that through Your Son, Jesus, You have generously given to us.
C: We rejoice that You have given everything and we joyfully give everything back to Your care. Amen.
Song: “How Deep The Father’s Love For Us” by: Stuart Townend
Song: “O Fount of Love” by: Matt Boswell and Matt Papa
L: The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost.
C: But we received mercy
L: We received mercy so that Christ could display his perfect patience as an example to those who were to believe in him.
C: To the King of ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
– Adapted from 1 Timothy 1: 15-17
AMEN, as we prepare to go from here, may we go with confidence in the mercy we have received, know that we have saved by grace and made alive in Christ!!
Song: “Made Alive” by: Matt Ledford and Casey Roberts
Here this benediction as we go:
Go as children of God the Father, who through Jesus Christ have been released from the law, with confidence to serve in the way of the Spirit of God from whom all life flows.
L: Peace be with you. C: And also with you.
