SONG OF ADORATION
Saved My Soul
You my God have saved my soul
I am Yours forevermore
I won't be moved of this I'm sure
You are my God and You saved my soul

I was lost when you came for me
Held in chains by the enemy
But You broke them in victory
Now I'm free, I am free

You're my joy and You are my hope
I am saved by Your grace alone
I will sing of Your love for me
I am free, I am free

You my God have saved my soul
I am Yours forevermore
I won't be moved of this I'm sure
You are my God and You saved my soul

Now I stand with the King of kings
He has paid for my every sin
And from now through eternity
I am free, I am free

What once was dead is now alive
You gave to me the breath of life
You brought me up out from the grave
I'm bursting out with songs of praise

CALL TO WORSHIP – Psalm 111, 1 Peter
Leader: Give thanks to the LORD with your whole heart in the company of His saints. Hear His word, and delight in His work of redemption.
All: The LORD is gracious and merciful, remembering His covenant forever. He has shown us the power of His works in giving us an inheritance that is kept for us in heaven.
Leader: The works of His hands are faithful and just; all His precepts are trustworthy.
All: Let us therefore rejoice, though for a little while we are grieved by various trials, so that our faith may result in praise and honor and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
++
CONFESSION OF SIN
Leader: King of our hearts, you have made us citizens in Your kingdom and co-heirs with Christ.
All: But we so quickly forget this identity and instead seek significance in the approval of men and women. We seek places of honor in the public sphere for our own glory rather than for the furthering of Your kingdom. We exploit the poor and weak among us by pitting our reputations against theirs. In our sinful accounting, we reckon our debts settled when we give out of our abundance, but keep for ourselves those things we would not dare to lose. You do not delight in such empty sacrifices, O LORD, so give us instead broken and contrite hearts. Have mercy on us, according to Your steadfast love. Wash us thoroughly from our iniquity and cleanse us from our sin. Amen.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON- Ephesians 5
Leader: Church, Christ gave Himself for you, that He might sanctify you, having cleansed you by the washing of water with the Word. He will present us to Himself in splendor, that we might be holy and without blemish! Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! God has received us, pardoned us and loved us; let us forgive each other in love and share the peace of Christ. May the peace of Christ be with you.
People: And also with you.

Abide With Me
Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide.
When other helpers, fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, abide with me.

Thou on my head, in early youth didst smile;
And, though rebellious, and perverse meanwhile,
Thou hast not left me, though I oft left Thee,
On to the close Lord, abide with me.

I need Thy presence, every passing hour.
What but Thy grace, can foil the tempter's power?
Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, abide with me.

I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless
Ills have no weight, tears lose their bitterness
Where is thy sting death? Where grave thy victory?
I triumph still, abide with me.

Hold Thou Thy cross, before my closing eyes;
Shine through the gloom, and point me to the skies.
Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee;
In life, in death, Lord, abide with me.

SERMON- Severe Mercy: Jesus promises you a rescued life
Genesis 37:1-11
Rev. Dan Herron

SONG OF RESPONSE
He Will Hold Me Fast
Let the glory of the Lord forever be our joy
May redemption be the theme of our song
For by grace we have been saved
And by grace we shall proclaim
To the corners of the earth that Christ has come

Let the nations be glad
Let the peoples rejoice
For salvation belongs to our God
Let the whole earth be filled
With the praises of the Lord
For salvation belongs to our God
Let the nations be glad

Through the ages gone before
Through the trial and the sword
Many saints and martyrs conquered, though they died
Still we're holding out the cross
Crossing oceans, suffering loss
Shall endure all things to win the crown of life

As Your holy church goes forth
In the Holy Spirit's power
With the glories of the gospel to explain
Now we pray Your kingdom come
And we pray Your will be done
For the honor and the glory of Your name

SONG OF CELEBRATION
Doxology
Praise God from whom all blessings flow
Praise Him all creatures here below
Praise Him above ye heavenly hosts
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost

BENEDICTION – Psalm 19
Leader: Redeemed, you are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God though Jesus Christ. So let us proclaim the excellencies of Him who called us out of darkness into His marvelous light. May the words of your mouth and the meditation of your heart be acceptable in the sight of the LORD, your Rock and Redeemer! Come quickly, Lord Jesus! Amen.
