Is God Asleep?

July 26, 2020 Speaker: Tom Jones Series: General Sermons

Topic: Expository Passage: Mark 4:31–4:41, Isaiah 43

LORD’S DAY WORSHIP

July 26, 2020 at 1:00 pm

 

Worship of the Triune God is our most important duty.  John 4:23-24 says that God seeks those who worship Him in spirit and truth.  As you worship today, purpose to enter fully into the praise offered by singing, in joyful giving of tithes and offerings, in prayer, and in carefully listening to God speak through the reading and preaching of His Word.  May our sovereign Lord receive glory as you actively worship Him.

 

Prelude

 

Welcome and Announcements

 

Introit              “Sanctus ”                   Choir

Please use this time to set your hearts on Christ and pray for the Word, our worship, and that holiness and reverence will be known among us.

 

Round the Lord in glory seated, Cherubim and seraphim

Filled His temple, and repeated Each to each the alternate hymn:

“Lord, Thy glory fills the heaven, Earth is with Thy fullness stored;

Unto Thee be glory given, Holy, holy, holy Lord!”

 

Heaven is with Thy glory ringing, Earth takes up the angel cry,

“Holy, holy, holy” singing, “Lord, of Hosts, Thou Lord most High.

Lord, Thy glory fills the heaven, Earth is with Thy fullness stored;

Unto Thee be glory given, Holy, holy, holy Lord!”

 

With His seraph train before Him, With His holy Church below,

Thus unite we to adore Him, Bid we thus our anthem flow:

“Lord, Thy glory fills the heaven, Earth is with Thy fullness stored;

Unto Thee be glory given, Holy, holy, holy Lord!”

 

Call to Worship                                                                             Psalm 98:4-6

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth; break forth into joyous song and sing praises! Sing praises to the Lord with the lyre, with the lyre and the sound of melody! With trumpets and the sound of the horn make a joyful noise before the King, the Lord!

Invocation*

 

Confession of Faith                                                             Ephesians 1:3-12

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places,

 

even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him.

 

In love he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will,

 

to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved.

 

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight

 

making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.

 

In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will, so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory.

 

Preparation for Confession of Sin                                         Psalm 25:6-7

Remember your mercy, O Lord, and your steadfast love, for they have been from of old.  Remember not the sins of my youth or my transgressions; according to your steadfast love remember me, for the sake of your goodness, O Lord!

 

Confession of Sin

 

Assurance of Pardon                                                     Psalm 25:8-10

Good and upright is the Lord; therefore, he instructs sinners in the way.  He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble his way.  All the paths of the Lord are steadfast love and faithfulness, for those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.
