Call to Worship
Good morning, and welcome to Redemption! We’re so glad you’ve joined us as we gather up our worship together — that, as Colossians 3:16 reminds us, the Word of Christ would dwell in us richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in our hearts to God.
Hear the Word of the Lord as it calls us to worship:
But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you;
may those who love your salvation say continually,
Great is the LORD!
– Psalm 40:16
Worship in Song | Great is Our God
Confession / Lament
We sing of the greatness of God because of just that — He’s GREAT, unlike anything else on earth we’d give that superlative to. God’s children are not called to come before the greatness of God with a list of accomplishments, or merits or goodness. We’re called to come with the humility that offers nothing but our need for mercy. Such a cry for mercy comes from our dying away of our old selves, which expresses that we are genuinely sorry for our sins and more and more…hate and run away from them. Our collective plea for mercy is in an of itself an act of faith.
Worship in Song | Kyrie Eleison
Worship in Song | We Will Feast in the House of Zion
Assurance of Grace / Passing of the Peace
God gives us great promises, many of which we sing like, “We will sing and weep no more!” And He never lies, friends. Take heart in this as you greet one another this morning.
Sermon |The Defiance | Exodus 5-7:13
Response | Giving | Prayer | The Lord’s Supper
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
– Romans 15:13
Peace be with you!
And also with you!
