Call to Worship   

Romans 5:1-5
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4 and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, 5 and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

Opening Prayer 

 

First Song

IN CHRIST ALONE
 
VERSE 1
In Christ alone my hope is found;
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This cornerstone, this solid ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My comforter, my all in all—
Here in the love of Christ I stand.
 
VERSE 2
In Christ alone, who took on flesh,
Fullness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness,
Scorned by the ones He came to save.
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied;
For ev’ry sin on Him was laid—
Here in the death of Christ I live.
 
VERSE 3
There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain;
Then bursting forth in glorious day,
Up from the grave He rose again!
And as He stands in victory,
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me;
For I am His and He is mine—
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.
 
VERSE 4
No guilt in life, no fear in death—
This is the pow’r of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No pow’r of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home—
Here in the pow’r of Christ I’ll stand.

Confession of Sin and Assurance of Pardon

Romans 7:21-8:1

21 So I find it to be a law that when I want to do right, evil lies close at hand. 22 For I delight in the law of God, in my inner being, 23 but I see in my members another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members. 24 Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? 25 Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin.
8 There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

Calvary Grace Confession of Faith

X. Justification
We believe that God freely justifies the ungodly by faith alone apart from works, pardoning their sins, and reckoning them as righteous and acceptable in His presence. We believe that faith is thus the sole instrument by which we, as sinners, are united to Christ, whose perfect righteousness and satisfaction for sins is alone the ground of our acceptance with God. We believe that the righteousness by which we come into right standing with God is accomplished for us, outside ourselves, and is imputed to us.
 
Jeremiah 23:5-6; Romans 3:21-22,28; 4:4-8; 5:18-19; II Corinthians 5:21; Philippians 3:8-9; Titus 3:5-7


Scripture Reading

Psalm 124
A Song of Ascents. Of David.
 1  If it had not been the Lord who was on our side—
let Israel now say—
 2  if it had not been the Lord who was on our side
when people rose up against us,
 3  then they would have swallowed us up alive,
when their anger was kindled against us;
 4  then the flood would have swept us away,
the torrent would have gone over us;
 5  then over us would have gone
the raging waters.
 
 6  Blessed be the Lord,
who has not given us
as prey to their teeth!
 7  We have escaped like a bird
from the snare of the fowlers;
     the snare is broken,
and we have escaped!
 
 8  Our help is in the name of the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.


Pastoral Prayer

 

Second Song

THE LORD IS MY SALVATION

VERSE 1
The grace of God has reached for me
And pulled me from the raging sea
And I am safe on this solid ground
The Lord is my salvation
 
I will not fear when darkness falls
His strength will help me scale these walls
I’ll see the dawn of the rising sun
The Lord is my salvation
 
CHORUS
Who is like the Lord our God?
Strong to save, faithful in love
My debt is paid and the vict’ry won
The Lord is my salvation
 
VERSE 2
My hope is hidden in the Lord
He flow’rs each promise of His Word
When winter fades I know spring will come
The Lord is my salvation
 
In times of waiting, times of need
When I know loss, when I am weak
I know His grace will renew these days
The Lord is my salvation
 
VERSE 3
And when I reach my final day
He will not leave me in the grave
But I will rise,
He will call me home
The Lord is my salvation
 
BRIDGE
Glory be to God the Father
Glory be to God the Son
Glory be to God the Spirit
The Lord is our salvation

Closing Song

A MIGHTY FORTRESS
 
VERSE 1
A mighty fortress is our God,
a bulwark never failing;
our helper he, amid the flood
of mortal ills prevailing.
For still our ancient foe
Doth seek to work us woe;
his craft and power are great,
and armed with cruel hate,
on earth is not his equal.
 
VERSE 2
Did we in our own strength confide,
our striving would be losing,
were not the right Man on our side,
the Man of God's own choosing.
You ask who that may be?
Christ Jesus, it is he;
Lord Sabaoth his name,
from age to age the same;
and he must win the battle.
 
VERSE 3
And though this world, with devils filled,
should threaten to undo us,
we will not fear, for God has willed
his truth to triumph through us.
The prince of darkness grim,
we tremble not for him;
his rage we can endure,
for lo! his doom is sure;
one little word shall fell him.
 
VERSE 4
That Word above all earthly powers
no thanks to them abideth;
the Spirit and the gifts are ours
through him who with us sideth.
Let goods and kindred go,
this mortal life also;
the body they may kill:
God's truth abideth still;
his kingdom is forever!
 
Words and Music: Martin Luther


Benediction

Psalm 118:6-7
 6  The Lord is on my side; I will not fear.
What can man do to me?
 7  The Lord is on my side as my helper;
I shall look in triumph on those who hate me.
