Call to Worship
Welcome to Redemption Peoria! Whenever we gather, we do so around Jesus, and because of Jesus — all that He is and all that He’s done. Hear Isaiah’s prophecy about him, and read the underlined portions aloud:
Out of the stump of David’s family will grow a shoot —
yes, a new Branch bearing fruit from the old root.
And the Spirit of the LORD will rest on him —
the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might,
the Spirit of knowledge and fear of the LORD.
He will give justice to the poor
and make fair decisions for the exploited.
The earth will shake at the force of his word,
and one breath from his mouth will destroy the wicked.
He will wear righteousness like a belt
and truth like an undergarment.
– Isaiah 11:1-5 NLT
This is the rock upon which we stand this morning — Jesus our Lord and King. He’s more beautiful and believable than anything else we could worship.
Let’s rejoice in that together!
Worship in Song
Confession / Lament
Let’s pray together with the Psalmist: [Psalm 25:4-7]
Make me to know your ways, O LORD; teach me your paths.
Lead me in your truth and teach me,
for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long.
Remember your mercy, O LORD, and your steadfast love,
for they have been from of old.
Remember not the sins of my youth or my transgressions;
according to your steadfast love remember me,
for the sake of your goodness, O LORD!

Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah
Assurance of Grace / Passing of Peace
We remember our assurance in the gospel each week, and what better an assurance than Jesus reminding us, himself?! He says this:
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”
– John 14:6-7 NIV
Take heart in that truth today, and greet one another now in peace.
Sermon | The Privilege of Preaching Christ | Ephesians 3:7-9
Response | Giving | The Lord’s Supper
As the Lord sends you out,
Go with confidence in His Word,
With a humble dependence in prayer,
That He might transform you into His image,
From one degree of glory to the next,
Until He comes and restores all things
in a twinkling of an eye.
Peace be with you.
And also with you!
