Call to Worship
Good morning! When we gather like this, we get to respond to a great God and Savior who has revealed Himself to us. Our participation together is in preparation for the day when we’re face to face with Him. Let’s echo this song from the Scriptures that will be sung before Him in eternity:

“Great and amazing are your deeds, O Lord God the Almighty!
Just and true are your ways, O King of the nations!
Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify your name?
For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship you,
for your righteous acts have been revealed.”


– Revelation 15:3b-4

Worship in Song
Doxology (From All that Dwells)

Confession / Lament
He has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
So we can confidently say,
“The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?”


– Hebrews 13:5b-6

While we have great promises such as this in the Scriptures, time and time again we fall into fear and question if such a great promise can be true. Let’s take a moment to repent, and to hear these words anew, that God not only rescues His people, but that He will also be faithful to keep them.

SILENCE

Worship in Song
O Come O Come, Emmanuel

Assurance of Grace / Passing of Peace
Believers in Christ, hear and remember the good news!

And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.

– Philippians 1:6

In all our confusion, chaos, division, anxiety, and heavy-heartedness, God is and remains faithful. In His Son, Jesus, he has not only given us forgiveness for sin, but also promises complete restoration and his ultimate blessing — one day completing the good work he has begun in our lives. 

Take great peace and assurance in this truth, and in light of it extend this peace to one another by greeting those around you.

Benediction
May the Lord Jesus Christ fill you with grace and truth
as you serve Him in the days ahead;
And may the joy of the returning Lord be your strength!

Peace be with you.
And also with you.
