ORDER FOR THE WORSHIP OF GOD
Lord’s Day, January 17, 2021

To all who are spiritually weary and seek rest;
to all who mourn and long for comfort;
to all who struggle and desire victory;
to all who sin and need a Savior;

and to all who will come,
this church opens wide her doors and
offers welcome in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

APPROACHING GOD IN CONFESSION AND SERVICE

Call to Confession: Isaiah 47:10-11
“You have trusted in your wickedness and have said, ‘No one sees me.’ Your wisdom and knowledge mislead you when you say to yourself, ‘I am and there is none besides me.’  Disaster will come upon you, and you will not know how to conjure it away.  A calamity will fall upon you that you cannot ward off with a ransom; a catastrophe you cannot foresee will suddenly come upon you.”

Prayer of Confession:
 Father, the teaching of Isaiah serves as a warning. When we sin, we are acting as if we are God. We are asserting an independence that we do not have. Our hearts convince us that no one sees us as we sin. Isaiah’s warning is that the path of sin leads to sudden and complete destruction.

Help us to see the evil and destruction of our sin. May we be reminded that we are always living our lives before You, whether we obey or sin. Forgive us for our unfaithfulness. Pour out Your grace on us, so we see Your holiness. May we know the beauty of relationship with You and the blessing of relationships with others built on purity.

Now hear the Lord’s Assurance of Pardon:
“Shout for joy, O heavens; rejoice, O earth; burst into song, O mountains! For the LORD comforts His people and will have compassion on His afflicted ones.”.” –Isaiah 49:13
