Redemption Peoria Liturgy Recap | 12.20.15

December 21, 2015  |  Josh Miles

Call to Worship
Good morning, and welcome!  Today is the final Sunday of Advent – a season where we remember the story of Israel and their waiting for their Savior.  And, in the same way, we remind each other of his inevitable return to redeem and restore all things.  

Hear God’s Word this morning:

Blessed be the Lord! For he has heard the voice of my pleas for mercy.
The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped;
my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.
The Lord is the strength of his people;
he is the saving refuge of his anointed.
Oh, save your people and bless your heritage!
Be their shepherd and carry them forever.

– Psalm 28:6-9

Assurance of Grace
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners,
Christ died for us.
Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood,
much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.
More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
through whom we have no received reconciliation.

– Romans 5:8-9, 11

Grace Alone

Passing of Peace
The grace of God changes everything, including the way we are able to love one another.  So let’s greet each other now in the grace and peace of Christ.

New Again

As you go, remember the Lord, who always remembers you.
Do not neglect to pray, for you do not live on bread alone,
but on every word of the Lord.
And remember the needy, for they are our brothers and sisters.
And be thankful, for God is with us and we have a great salvation!

Go in peace.
