Call to Worship: Joel 2

26“You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied,

and praise the name of the LORD your God,

who has dealt wondrously with you.

And my people shall never again be put to shame.

27You shall know that I am in the midst of Israel,

and that I am the LORD your God and there is none else.

And my people shall never again be put to shame.

OPENING HYMN  Behold Our God #126



Who has held the oceans in his hands?

Who has numbered every grain of sand?

Kings and nations tremble at his voice

All creation rises to rejoice

 

Behold our God, seated on his throne

Come, let us adore him

Behold our king, nothing can compare

Come, let us adore him

 

Who has given counsel to the Lord?

Who can question any of his words?

Who can teach, the one who knows all things?

Who can fathom all his wondrous deeds?

 

Behold our God, seated on his throne

Come, let us adore him

Behold our king, nothing can compare

Come, let us adore him

 

Who has felt the nails upon his hands?

Bearing all the guilt of sinful man

God eternal, humbled to the grave

Jesus, Savior, risen now to reign

 

Behold our God, seated on his throne

Come, let us adore him

Behold our king, nothing can compare

Come, let us adore him













HYMN  A Mighty Fortress Is Our God #53



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.

 

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:

Dost 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.




And though this world, with devils filled,

Should threaten to undo us,

We will not fear, for God hath 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.

 

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.








Confession of Sin  

Joel 2

12“Yet even now,” declares the LORD,

“return to me with all your heart,

with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning;

13and rend your hearts and not your garments.”

Return to the LORD your God,

for he is gracious and merciful,

slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love;

and he relents over disaster.

14Who knows whether he will not turn and relent,

and leave a blessing behind him,

a grain offering and a drink offering

for the LORD your God?



Assurance of Pardon Joel 2:28, 32a

28e “And it shall come to pass afterward,

that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh;

...And it shall come to pass that everyone 

who calls on the name of the LORD 

shall be saved.

CLOSING HYMN  Great is Thy Faithfulness #86



Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father; 

there is no shadow of turning with thee; 

thou changest not, thy compassions, they fail not; as thou hast been thou forever wilt be. 

 

Great is thy faithfulness! 

Great is thy faithfulness! 

Morning by morning new mercies I see:

all I have needed thy hand hath provided--

Great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

 

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,sun, moon, and stars in their courses above

join with all nature in manifold witness 

to thy great faithfulness, mercy, and love. 






Great is thy faithfulness! 

Great is thy faithfulness! 

Morning by morning new mercies I see:

all I have needed thy hand hath provided--

Great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

 

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth, 

thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide, 

strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,

blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside! 

 

Great is thy faithfulness! 

Great is thy faithfulness! 

Morning by morning new mercies I see:

all I have needed thy hand hath provided--

Great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!






Benediction

  Revelation 7:16-17

 

They shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore;

the sun shall not strike them,

nor any scorching heat.

For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd,

and he will guide them to springs of living water,

and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”
