    ALL GLORY TO THE FATHER

     

    The Call to Worship - Psalm 119:9-12A -

    * “Thy Word Have I Hid in My Heart” (TH 136)

    Psalm 119:129-136 (NIV) -

    Your statutes are wonderful;

        therefore I obey them.

    The unfolding of your words gives light;

        it gives understanding to the simple.

    I open my mouth and pant,

        longing for your commands.

    Turn to me and have mercy on me,

        as you always do to those who love your name.

    Direct my footsteps according to your word;

        let no sin rule over me.

    Redeem me from human oppression,

        that I may obey your precepts.

    Make your face shine on your servant

        and teach me your decrees.

    Streams of tears flow from my eyes,

        for your law is not obeyed.

     

    * Invocation, Confession and Assurance, The Lord’s Prayer

    * “Praise Ye the Father!” (TH 107)

     

    ...AND GLORY TO THE SON

     

    Mark 10:42-45 (ESV)

                42 And Jesus called them to him and said to them, “You know that those who are considered rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. 43 But it shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, 44 and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. 45 For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

     

     

    Romans 6:5-23 (NIV)

                5 For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his. 6 For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin— 7 because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.

    8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. 9 For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has

    mastery over him. 10 The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.

    11 In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. 12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.

    13 Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness. 14 For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace.

    15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under the law but under grace? By no means! 16 Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness? 17 But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you have come to obey from your heart the pattern of teaching that has now claimed your allegiance. 18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.

    19 ...Just as you used to offer yourselves as slaves to impurity and to ever-increasing wickedness, so now offer yourselves as slaves to righteousness leading to holiness. 20 When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the control of righteousness. 21 What benefit did you reap at that time from the things you are now ashamed of? Those things result in death! 22 But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life. 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    * “Lead On, O King Eternal” (TH 580)

     

    ...AND GLORY TO THE HOLY SPIRIT

    John 15:26-27a -
