Opening Prayer: 

 

**Opening Hymn: The Church’s One Foundation 277

 

** Invocation: I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to you among the nations. For your steadfast love is as high as the heavens; your faithfulness extends to the clouds. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens. Let your glory be over all the earth.

 

**Call to Worship: Isaiah 40:4-11

M: Every valley shall be exalted and every mountain and hill brought low; the crooked places shall be made straight and the rough places smooth; 

C: the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.” 

M: The voice said, “Cry out!” And he said, “What shall I cry?” 

C: “All flesh is grass, and all its loveliness is like the flower of the field. The grass withers, the flower fades, because the breath of the Lord blows upon it; 

M: surely the people are grass. The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever.”

C: O Zion, you who bring good tidings, get up into the high mountain; 

M: O Jerusalem, you who bring good tidings, lift up your voice with strength, lift it up, be not afraid;

C: say to the cities of Judah, “Behold your God!” Behold, the Lord God shall come with a strong hand, 

M: and His arm shall rule for Him; behold, His reward is with Him, and His work before Him. 

C: He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His arm, and carry them in His bosom, and gently lead those who are with young.

 

Reading of the Law: Exodus 20:1-17 


 

**Prayer of Confession: Almighty and most merciful Father; We have erred, and strayed from thy ways like lost sheep. We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts. We have offended against thy holy laws. We have left undone those things which we ought to have done; And we have done those things which we ought not to have done; And there is no health in us. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us, miserable offenders. Spare thou them, O God, which confess their faults. Restore thou them that are penitent; According to thy promises declared unto mankind in Christ Jesus our Lord. And grant, O most merciful Father, for his sake; That we may hereafter live a godly, righteous and sober life. To the Glory of thy holy Name. Amen.

Postlude

 

“By him the Mediator, the Lord declares himself to make those whom he hath redeemed with his blood, of evil, good to eternity… Christ will possess what he bought; he bought it with such a price that he might possess it.” Augustine, Rebuke and Grace ch. 11 (A.D. 420)

 

“He who knows God’s work in Jesus Christ will undoubtedly admit without hesitation and joyfully state that the loving redeemer redeemed absolutely all Whom He redeemed from eternal death at such a price and that He gave them all eternal life. Let them deny this, if they want, who love the dregs more than the oil, the grape skins or seeds more than wine, chaff and weeds more than wheat, kids and goats more than sheep and lambs, because they perhaps come from them. But those who love God, who know that He is omnipotent and believe, know, and say that He has done whatever He willed in heaven and on earth, and in the sea and in all the deeps (Ps. 134:6), most firmly hold, state, and assert that no one among those who have been redeemed by the blood of Christ perishes eternally." Gottschalk of Orbais, ca. 850 A.D.

Sermon Text

John 10:11, 14; 24-28 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep…I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own.”

Then the Jews surrounded Him and said to Him, “How long do You keep us in doubt? If You are the Christ, tell us plainly.” Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in My Father’s name, they bear witness of Me. But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you. My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.

 

Old Testament Reading: Psalm 79

 

O God, the nations have come into Your inheritance; Your holy temple they have defiled; They have laid Jerusalem in heaps. The dead bodies of Your servants they have given as food for the birds of the heavens, the flesh of Your saints to the beasts of the earth. Their blood they have shed like water all around Jerusalem, and there was no one to bury them. We have become a reproach to our neighbors, a scorn and derision to those who are around us.

How long, Lord? Will You be angry forever? Will Your jealousy burn like fire? Pour out Your wrath on the nations that do not know You, And on the kingdoms that do not call on Your name. For they have devoured Jacob, and laid waste his dwelling place.

Oh, do not remember former iniquities against us! Let Your tender mercies come speedily to meet us, for we have been brought very low. Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of Your name; and deliver us, and provide atonement for our sins, for Your name’s sake! Why should the nations say, “Where is their God?” Let there be known among the nations in our sight The avenging of the blood of Your servants which has been shed.

Let the groaning of the prisoner come before You; according to the greatness of Your power preserve those who are appointed to die; and return to our neighbors sevenfold into their bosom their reproach with which they have reproached You, O Lord. So we, Your people and sheep of Your pasture, will give You thanks forever; we will show forth Your praise to all generations.

 

Hymns

 

The Church’s One Foundation       277

 

1 The church's one foundation

is Jesus Christ, her Lord;

she is his new creation

by water and the Word:

from heav'n he came and sought her

to be his holy bride;

with his own blood he bought her,

and for her life he died.

 

2 Elect from ev'ry nation,

yet one o'er all the earth,

her charter of salvation

one Lord, one faith, one birth;

one holy name she blesses,

partakes one holy food,

and to one hope she presses,

with ev'ry grace endued.

 

3 'Mid toil and tribulation,

and tumult of her war,

she waits the consummation

of peace forevermore;

till with the vision glorious

her longing eyes are blest,

and the great church victorious

shall be the church at rest.

 

4 Yet she on earth hath union

with the God the Three in One,

and mystic sweet communion

with those whose rest is won:

O happy ones and holy!

Lord, give us grace that we,

like them, the meek and lowly,

on high may dwell with thee.

 

Hymn: I Lay My Sin on Jesus                     340

 

1 I lay my sins on Jesus,

the spotless Lamb of God;

he bears them all, and frees us

from the accursed load:

I bring my guilt to Jesus,

to wash my crimson stains

white in his blood most precious,

'til not a spot remains.

 

2 I lay my wants on Jesus;

all fullness dwells in him;

he heals all my diseases,

he doth my soul redeem:

I lay my griefs on Jesus,

my burdens and my cares;

he from them all releases,

he all my sorrows shares.

 

3 I long to be like Jesus,

meek, loving, lowly, mild;

I long to be like Jesus,

the Father's holy child:

I long to be with Jesus

amid the heav'nly throng,

to sing with saints his praises,

to learn the angels' song.

 

Rock of Ages                                                204

 

1 Rock of Ages, cleft for me, 
Let me hide myself in Thee; 
Let the water and the blood, 
From Thy riven side which flowed, 
Be of sin the double cure; 
Save from its guilt and pow’r. 

 

2 Not the labors of my hands 
Can fulfill thy law's demands; 
Could my zeal no respite know, 
Could my tears forever flow, 
All for sin could not atone; 
Thou must save, and Thou alone. 

 

3 Nothing in my hand I bring, 
simply to the cross I cling; 
naked, come to Thee for dress; 
helpless, look to thee for grace; 
foul, I to the fountain fly; 
wash me, Savior, or I die. 

 

4 While I draw this fleeting breath, 
when mine eyes shall close in death, 
when I soar to worlds unknown, 
See Thee on thy judgment throne, 
Rock of Ages, cleft for me, 
let me hide myself in Thee.

 

Amazing Grace                                201

 

1 Amazing grace (how sweet the sound)
that saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
was blind, but now I see.

 

2 'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
and grace my fears relieved;
how precious did that grace appear
the hour I first believed!

 

3 The Lord has promised good to me,
his word my hope secures;
he will my shield and portion be
as long as life endures.

 

4 Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come:
'tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
and grace will lead me home.

 

5. When we’ve been there ten thousand years,

Bright shining as the sun,

We’ve no less days to sing God’s grace

than when we’ve first begun.
