ORDER FOR THE WORSHIP OF GOD
Lord’s Day, June 20, 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;
to all who are strangers and want fellowship;
to all who hunger and thirst for righteousness;
and to all who will come,
this church opens wide her doors and
offers welcome in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Prelude

Welcome and Announcements

Meditation                                Hebrews 10:30-31
“For we know Him who said, ‘It is Mine to avenge; I will repay,’ and again, ‘The Lord will judge His people.’  It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.”

APPROACHING GOD IN WORSHIP

Greeting: Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Call to Worship: Revelation 11:17; Psalm 145:10

Pastor: We offer thanks to You, LORD God Almighty, who is and who was, for You have taken Your great power and begun to reign.

People: All Your works shall give thanks to You, O LORD, and all Your saints shall bless you!

Hymn of Adoration: O Worship the King #2

Prayer of Adoration

APPROACHING GOD IN CONFESSION AND SERVICE

Call to Confession: Acts 5:1-6
“Now a man named Ananias, together with his wife Sapphira, sold a piece of property.  With his wife’s full knowledge he kept back part of the money for himself, but brought the rest and put it at the apostles’    feet.  Then Peter said, ‘Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit and have kept for yourself some of the money you received for the land?  Didn’t it belong to you before it was sold?  And after it was sold, wasn’t the money at your disposal?  What made you think of doing such a thing?  You have not lied to men but to God.’  When Ananias heard this, he fell down and died.  And great fear seized all who heard what had happened.  Then the young men came forward, wrapped up his body, and carried him out and buried him.”

Prayer of Confession:
Father, we see in Ananias one who lost the fear of You. This allowed him to lie about his actions. He publicly misrepresented what he did in private. In his deceit, he was not taking You into account.

We understand his sin, for we too have committed such sins. Forgive us when we don’t take You into account and for the sin which results. Pour out Your grace on us, that we might always live our lives before Your face. Help our behavior to be pleasing to You.

We come to You in our Savior’s name and merit.  Amen.

Now hear the Lord’s Assurance of Pardon:
“God exalted Jesus to His own right hand as Prince and Savior that He might give repentance and forgiveness of sins to Israel.” Acts 5:31

Hymn: How Gentle God’s Commands #681
