Worship in Song Only a Holy God

Call to WorshipGood morning, and welcome to Redemption. Hear the Word of the Lord this morning through all our voices, as it calls us to worship by way our echoing this psalm of David:

Oh come, let us sing to the LORD
let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!
Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!
For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
In his hand are the depths of the earth; 
the heights of the mountains are his also.
The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.
Oh come, let us worship and bow down; 
let us kneel before the LORD, our Maker!
For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture,
and the sheep of his hand.

– Psalm 95:1-7

Worship in Song Praise to the Lord, the Almighty

Confession / Lament
We can trust God — in all things — whether it be the highest of heights or in the deep despair of the depths. Hear God’s Word:

Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD! O Lord, hear my voice!
Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my pleas for mercy!
If you, O LORD, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? 
But with you there is forgiveness, that you may be feared.
I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his word I hope;
my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning,
more than watchmen for the morning.

– Psalm 130:1-6

Worship in Song Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah

Assurance of GraceScripture reminds us that all the promises of God find their Yes and Amen in the Son of God, Jesus Christ. Promises we can declare this morning and know they will not come back void. So as we sing, THIS WE KNOW, remember:

No matter how much we seem to be surrounded by such evil, we will see the enemy run. No matter how defeat seems so unavoidable, we will see a victory come in Christ. We know that God’s ways are higher than ours, and in our hardest moments here and now, Jesus is absolutely unfailing.
