Call to Worship 
Welcome to Redemption! We’re grateful for the opportunity to gather her today and worship the Lord, and remember together the truth of the gospel. Let’s hear from God’s Word and respond:

I will bless the LORD at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul makes its boast in the LORD; let the humble hear and be glad.
Oh, magnify the LORD with me,
and let us exalt his name together!

I sought the LORD, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears.
Those who look to him are radiant,
and their faces shall never be ashamed.


– Psalm 34:1-5

Let’s approach the Lord with confidence this morning in lifting our voices.

Before the Throne of God Above

Confession
O Father, because Jesus has taught us to trust you in all things,
we hold to his Word and share his plea:
Your kingdom come, your will be done.
Where nations budget for war, while Christ says, “Put up your sword”:
Your kingdom come, your will be done.
Where countries waste food and covet fashion, while Christ says, “I was hungry…I was thirsty…”:
Your kingdom come, your will be done.
Where powerful governments claim their policies are heaven-blessed,
while Scripture tells us that God helps the powerless:
Your kingdom come, your will be done.
Where Christians seek the kingdom in the shape of their own church,
as if Christ had come to build and not to break barriers:
Your kingdom come, your will be done.
Where women who speak up for their dignity are treated with scorn and contempt:
Your kingdom come, your will be done.
Where men try hard to be tough, because they are afraid to be tender:
Your kingdom come, your will be done.
Where we, obsessed with being independent adults, forget to become like children:
Your kingdom come, your will be done.
Where our prayers falter, our faith weakens, our light grows dim:
Your kingdom come, your will be done.
Where Jesus Christ calls us:
Your kingdom come, your will be done.
Lord God, you have declared that your kingdom is among us.
Open our ears to hear it, our hands to serve it, our hearts to hold it.
Lead us back, Lord. Lead us back to you.
This we pray in Jesus’ name —
Amen.

Lead Us Back

Assurance of Grace / Passing of Peace
Find assurance in God’s Word:

By this we shall know that we are of the truth
and reassure our heart before him;
for whenever our heart condemns us,
God is greater than our heart, and he knows everything.


– 1 John 3:19-20

Because of the finished work of Christ, we can find true rest for our anxious hearts. So with our hearts assured, let’s greet each other as sisters and brothers.

Sermon | Put Off & Put On | Ephesians 4:17-24

Benediction
As you go today,
Go as those fully loved by the Father,
Completely forgiven by the Son,
and empowered in the strength
of the Holy Spirit to live lives reshaped by the good news of the gospel,
for God’s glory, and for the good of our city.

 Peace be with you!
And also with you!
