HYMN: Hail the Day That Christ Arose

VERSE 1
Hail the day that Christ arose
Through the skies to world’s unknown
Glorious there He ever reigns
Object of all Heaven’s praise
 
CHORUS
Hallelujah, hallelujah
The King of Love is on His throne
Hallelujah, hallelujah
His grace will lead us safely home

VERSE 2
See Him lift His hands above
See the scars of His great love
He has conquered death and sin
Saving all who hope in Him

CHORUS
Hallelujah, hallelujah
The King of Love is on His throne
Hallelujah, hallelujah
His grace will lead us safely home

VERSE 3
Though He dwells beyond the stars
His redeemed are on His heart
Even now He intercedes
Jesus cares for all our needs

CHORUS
Hallelujah, hallelujah
The King of Love is on His throne
Hallelujah, hallelujah
His grace will lead us safely home

From Charles Wesley; Steve Cook and Vicki Cook

Confession of Sin Luke 24:45-48

45 Then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures,
46 and said to them, “Thus it is written that the Christ
would suffer and would rise from the dead on the third day,
47 and repentance and the forgiveness of sins
would be proclaimed in his name
to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem.
48 You are witnesses of these things.

Assurance of Pardon  Luke 24:49-53

49 And behold, I am sending the promise of my Father upon you. But stay in the city until you ware clothed with power from on high.”

50 And he led them out as far as Bethany, and lifting up his hands he blessed them. 51 While he blessed them, he parted from them and was carried up into heaven. 52 And they worshiped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy, 53 and were continually in the temple blessing God.

Heidelberg Catechism  (1563 AD)

We confess:
Q.
How does Christ's ascension into heaven benefit us?

A.
First,
he is our Advocate in heaven
before his Father.
Second,
we have our flesh in heaven
as a sure pledge that he, our Head,
will also take us, his members,
up to himself.
Third,
he sends us his Spirit as a counter-pledge,
by whose power we seek
the things that are above,
where Christ is,
seated at the right hand of God,
and not the things that are on earth.

Scripture Reading:

Luke 6.

46 “Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you?

47 Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you what he is like:

48 he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built.

49 But the one who hears and does not do them is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the stream broke against it, immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great.”

Pastoral Prayer

HYMN  Speak, O Lord

Speak, O Lord, as we come to You
To receive the food of your holy word.
Take Your truth, plant it deep in us;
Shape and fashion us in Your likeness,
That the light of Christ might be seen today
In our acts of love and our deeds of faith.
Speak, O Lord, and fulfil in us
All Your purposes, for Your glory.

Teach us Lord full obedience,
Holy reverence, true humility.
Test our thoughts and our attitudes
In the radiance of Your purity.
Cause our faith to rise
Cause our eyes to see,
Your majestic love and authority.
Words of power that can never fail;
Let their truth prevail over unbelief.
 
Speak, O Lord, and renew our minds;
Help us grasp the heights of Your plans for us.
Truths unchanged from the dawn of time,
That will echo down through eternity.
And by grace we’ll stand on Your promises;
And by faith we’ll walk as You walk with us.
Speak, O Lord, ’til your church is built
And the earth is filled with Your glory.

CLOSING HYMN  How Firm A Foundation

VERSE 1
How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord
Is laid for your faith in His excellent Word
What more can He say than to you He hath said
To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled

VERSE 2
Fear not, I am with thee; oh be not dismayed
For I am thy God and will still give thee aid
I’ll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand
Upheld by My righteous, omnipotent hand

VERSE 3
When through the deep waters I call thee to go
The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow
For I will be with thee, thy troubles to bless
And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress

VERSE 4
When through fiery trials thy pathways shall lie
My grace all sufficient shall be thy supply
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
Thy dross to consume and thy gold to refine

VERSE 5
The soul that on Jesus has leaned for repose
I will not, I will not desert to its foes
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake
I’ll never, no never, no never forsake

From John Rippon’s Hymns.
