Prelude / Ringing the Church Bell / Announcements

Opening Prayer: Almighty God, unto whom all hearts are open, all desires known, and from whom no secrets are hid; cleanse the thoughts of our minds, we beseech Thee, by the inspiration of Thy Holy Spirit, that, being delivered from every unholy motion of the flesh and spirit, we may perfectly love Thee, with a pure heart and sanctified lips worship Thee, and worthily magnify Thy holy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Opening Hymn: All Hail the Power #97 R

Call to Worship: Isaiah 26:1-8

M: We have a strong city; he sets up victory like walls and bulwarks. Open the gates, so that the righteous nation that keeps faith may enter in.

C: Those of steadfast mind you keep in peace—in peace because they trust in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for in the Lord God you have an everlasting rock.

M: For he has brought low the inhabitants of the height; the lofty city he lays low. He lays it low to the ground, casts it to the dust.

C: The foot tramples it, the feet of the poor, the steps of the needy. The way of the righteous is level; O Just One, you make smooth the path of the righteous.

M: In the path of your judgments, O Lord, we wait for you;

C: your name and your renown are the soul’s desire.

Invocation: May the Lord our God be with us, as He was with our fathers. May He not leave us nor forsake us, that He may incline our hearts to Himself, to walk in all His ways, and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, which He commanded our fathers.

 

Call to Confession: Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, hose sin is covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit. When I kept silent, my bones grew old through my groaning all the day long. For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me; My vitality was turned into the drought of summer. I acknowledged my sin to You, and my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,” And You forgave the iniquity of my sin.

Prayer of Confession: Almighty and most merciful God. who hast given Thy Son to die for our sins, and to obtain forgiveness and redemption for us through His own blood; let the merit of this spotless sacrifice, we beseech Thee, purge our consciences from dead works, that we may serve Thee, the living God, and receive the promise of eternal inheritance in Christ Jesus our Lord : to whom, with Thee and the Holy Ghost, be honor and glory, world without end. Amen.

 

Words of Assurance

The Apostles’ Creed / The Gloria Patri

Hymn: Fairest Lord Jesus #88 R

Sermon Text: Hebrews 10:1-18

Since the law has only a shadow of the good things to come and not the true form of these realities, it can never, by the same sacrifices that are continually offered year after year, make perfect those who approach. 2 Otherwise, would they not have ceased being offered, since the worshipers, cleansed once for all, would no longer have any consciousness of sin? 3 But in these sacrifices there is a reminder of sin year after year. 4 For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins. 5 Consequently, when Christ came into the world, he said,

“Sacrifices and offerings you have not desired,
    but a body you have prepared for me;
6 in burnt offerings and sin offerings
    you have taken no pleasure.
7 Then I said, ‘See, God, I have come to do your will, O God’
    (in the scroll of the book it is written of me).”

8 When he said above, “You have neither desired nor taken pleasure in sacrifices and offerings and burnt offerings and sin offerings” (these are offered according to the law), 9 then he added, “See, I have come to do your will.” He abolishes the first in order to establish the second. 10 And it is by God’s will that we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

11 And every priest stands day after day at his service, offering again and again the same sacrifices that can never take away sins. 12 But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, “he sat down at the right hand of God,” 13 and since then has been waiting “until his enemies would be made a footstool for his feet.” 14 For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are sanctified. 15 And the Holy Spirit also testifies to us, for after saying,

16 “This is the covenant that I will make with them
    after those days, says the Lord:
I will put my laws in their hearts,
    and I will write them on their minds,”

17 he also adds,

“I will remember their sins and their lawless deeds no more.”

18 Where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer any offering for sin.

Postlude

Hymns

All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name - #97(R)

All hail the power of Jesus’ name! Let angels prostrate fall;

Bring forth the royal diadem, and crown Him Lord of all;

Bring forth the royal diadem, and crown Him Lord of all!

 

Ye chosen seed of Israel’s race, Ye ransomed from the fall,

Hail Him who saves you by His grace, And crown Him Lord of all; 

Hail Him who saves you by His grace, And crown Him Lord of all!

 

Let every kindred, every tribe, On this terrestrial ball,

To Him all majesty ascribe, and crown Him Lord of all;

To Him all majesty ascribe, and crown Him Lord of all!

 

O that with yonder sacred throng We at His feet may fall!

We’ll join the everlasting song, and crown Him Lord of all;

We’ll join the everlasting song, and crown Him Lord of all!


 

Fairest Lord Jesus - #88(R)

Fairest Lord Jesus, Ruler of all nature, O Thou of God and man the Son;

Thee will I cherish, Thee will I honor, Thou my soul’s glory, joy, and crown.

 

Fair are the meadows, Fairer still the woodlands, Robed in the blooming garb of spring;

Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer, Who makes the woeful heart to sing.

 

Fair is the sunshine, Fairer still the moonlight, And all the twinkling starry host;

Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer than all the angels heaven can boast.

 

Beautiful Savior! Lord of the nations! Son of God and Son of Man!

Glory and honor, Praise, adoration, now and forever more be Thine!


 

O God, Our Help in Ages Past - #52(R)

O God, our help in ages past, Our hope for years to come,

Our shelter from the stormy blast, and our eternal home!

 

Under the shadow of Thy throne Thy saints have dwelt secure;

Sufficient is Thine arm alone, and our defense is sure.

 

Before the hills in order stood, Or earth received her frame,

From everlasting Thou art God, to endless years the same.

 

A thousand ages in Thy sight are like an evening gone;

Short as the watch that ends the night before the rising sun.

 

Time, like an ever rolling stream, bears all its sons away

They fly, forgotten, as a dream dies at the opening day.

 

O God, our help in ages past, our hope for years to come,

Be Thou our guide while life shall last, and our eternal home.


 

Jesus Paid It All - #210 (R)

I hear the Savior say, “Thy strength indeed is small!

Child of weakness, watch and pray, Find in Me thine all in all.”

 

Refrain

Jesus paid it all. All to Him I owe;

Sin had left a crimson stain – He washed it white as snow.

 

Lord, now indeed I find Thy power, and Thine alone,

Can change the leper’s spots and melt that heart of stone.

 

Refrain

Jesus paid it all. All to Him I owe;

Sin had left a crimson stain – He washed it white as snow.

 

For nothing good have I  whereby Thy grace to claim

I’ll wash my garments white in the blood of Calvary’s Lamb.

 

Refrain

Jesus paid it all. All to Him I owe;

Sin had left a crimson stain – He washed it white as snow.

 

And when before the throne I stand in Him complete, 

“Jesus died my soul to save,” My lips shall still repeat.

 

Refrain

Jesus paid it all. All to Him I owe;

Sin had left a crimson stain – He washed it white as snow.
