The Keys to Perseverance

October 24, 2020 Speaker: Adrian Das Series: General Sermons

Topic: Expository Passage: Hebrews 12:1–12:3

LORD’S DAY WORSHIP

October 25, 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                         “God Himself Is with Us”           Choir                               

Joachim Neander

 

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.

 

Call to Worship*                                                               Psalm 47:6-9

Sing praises to God, sing praises! Sing praises to our King, sing praises! For God is the King of all the earth; sing praises with a psalm! God reigns over the nations; God sits on His holy throne. The princes of the peoples gather as the people of the God of Abraham. For the shields of the earth belong to God; He is highly exalted!

Hymn of Praise*           

“Come, Thou Almighty King”               #101

Invocation*

Confession of Faith                          Psalm 16:1-9

Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge.

 

I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you.”

 

As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones, in whom is all my delight.

 

The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply; their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out or take their names on my lips.

The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot.

The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.

 

I bless the Lord who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me.

I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.

 

Therefore, my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure.

Preparation for Confession of Sin                    Psalm 38:15-18

…for You, O LORD, do I wait; it is You, O Lord my God, who will answer. For I said, "Only let them not rejoice over me, who boast against me when my foot slips!" For I am ready to fall, and my pain is ever before me. I confess my iniquity; I am sorry for my sin.

Confession of Sin

Assurance of Pardon                                         Psalm 103:11-12

…as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His steadfast love toward those who fear Him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does He remove our transgressions from us.
