The Worship of God

September 22, 2019

11:00 AM

The prelude music is a time for beginning worship.  Observing a time of silence and prayer will free the congregation to focus on the worship of God.

The Prelude                                                                                     Mrs. Beth Braun

The Chiming of the Hour

The Greeting and the Lord’s Prayer                               Mr. Russell Dalton

*The Opening Hymn # 132           There is Power in the Blood  

The Gospel Lesson           Romans 11: 33-36    NIV        

Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!

How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!

“Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor? 

“Who has ever given to God, that God should repay him?”

For from him and through him and to him are all things.

To him be the glory forever! Amen.

                                                                                                               

                                              1 Timothy 3:14-16  NIV 

Although I hope to come to you soon, I am writing you these instructions so that, if I am delayed, you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in God’s household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth.  Beyond all question, the mystery of godliness is great:

He appeared in a body,

Was vindicated by the Spirit,

Was seen by angels,

Was preached among the nations,

Was believed on in the world,

Was taken up in glory.

This is the word of God for the people of God.

Thanks be to God.

The Greeting and the Lord’s Prayer                 Mrs. Bobbie Sweat                                                                           

*The Opening Hymn # 382                God, the Father of your People  

The Gospel Lesson             Luke 15: 1-10    NIV

Now the tax collectors and “sinners” were all gathering around to hear him.  But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.

Then Jesus told them this parable: “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them.  Does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it?  And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulder and goes home.  Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ 

I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.

Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one.  Does she not light

a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully  until she finds it?     And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin. 

In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”    

This is the gospel of Christ.

Thanks be to God.

The Chiming of the Hour

The Greeting and the Lord’s Prayer                                              Mrs. Pat Myers

*The Opening Hymn # 136      Are You Washed in the Blood

The Scripture Lesson                    Psalm 73: 1-17 

Surely God is good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart.  But as for me, my feet had almost slipped; I had nearly lost my foothold for I envied the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. They have no struggles; their bodies are healthy and strong.  They are free from the burdens common to man; they are not plagued by human ills.

Therefore pride is their necklace; they clothe themselves with violence.  From their callous hearts comes iniquity, the evil conceits of their minds know no limits.   They scoff, and speak with malice; in their arrogance they threaten oppression. Their mouths lay claim to heaven, and their tongues take possession of the earth. Therefore their people turn to them and drink up waters in abundance.  They say, “How can God know?  Does the Most High have knowledge? 

This is what the wicked are like – always carefree, they increase in wealth.  Surely in vain have I kept my heart pure; in vain have I washed my hands in innocence.  All day long I have been plagued; I have been punished every morning.   If I had said, “I will speak thus,” I would have betrayed your children.  When I tried to understand all this, it was oppressive to me till I entered the sanctuary of God; then I understood their final destiny.

This is the word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

*The Opening Hymn # 54                  Great is Thy Faithfulness

The Scripture Lesson              Luke 13: 10-17

On a Sabbath Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues, and a woman was there who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen years.  She was bent over and could not straighten up at all.  When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, “Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.”  Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God.

Indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, the synagogue ruler said to the people, “There are six days for work.  So come and be healed on those days, not on the Sabbath.”

The Lord answered him, “You hypocrites!  Doesn’t each of you on the Sabbath untie his ox or donkey from the stall and lead it out to give it water?  Then should not this woman, a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has kept bound for eighteen long years, be set free on the Sabbath day from what bound her?”

When he said this, all his opponents were humiliated, but the people were delighted with all the wonderful things he was doing.

This is the gospel of Christ.

Thanks be to God.

God presides in the great assembly; he gives judgment among the “gods”:

“How long will you defend the unjust and show partiality to the wicked? Selah

Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless;

Maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed;

Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the hand  of  the wicked.

They know nothing, they understand nothing. They walk about in darkness;

All the foundations of the earth are shaken.

“I said, ‘You are “gods”; you are all sons of the Most High.’  But you will die like mere men; you will fall like every other ruler.”

Rise up, O God, judge the earth, for all the nations are your inheritance.

*The Opening Hymn # 7                  Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee

The Scripture Lesson           Luke 12: 32-40

“Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom.  Sell your possessions and give to the poor.  Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning, like men waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so that when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him.  It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes.

I tell you the truth, he will dress himself to serve, will have them recline at the table and will come and wait on them.  It will be good for those servants whose master finds them ready, even if he comes in the second or third watch of the night.  But understand this:  If the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into.  You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.”

This is the gospel of Christ.

*The Opening Hymn # 425                  He Keeps Me Singing

The Scripture Lesson

 John 6: 60-69

On hearing it, many of his disciples said, “this is a hard teaching.  Who can accept it”? 

Aware that his disciples were grumbling about this, Jesus said to them.

“Does this offend you?  What if you see the Son of Man ascend to where he was before!  The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing.  The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life. 

Yet there are some of you who do not believe,” For Jesus had known from the beginning which of them did not believe and who would betray him.  He went on to say, “This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless the Father has enabled him.”  From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him. 

“You do not want to leave too, do you?” Jesus asked the twelve.  Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go?  You have the words of eternal life.  We believe and know that you are the Holy One of God.”

This is the gospel of Christ.

Thanks be to God.

The Welcome and Lord’s Prayer                           Mr. Russell Dalton

*The Opening Hymn # 333      Leaning on the Everlasting Arms

The Scripture Lesson

 Matthew 4: 18-22

As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew.  They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen.  “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men.”  At once they left their nets and followed him.

                          

Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John.  They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets.  Jesus called them, and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.

Romans 16:1-7

I commend to you our sister Phoebe, a servant of the church in Cenchrea.  I ask you to receive her in the Lord in a way worthy of the saints and to give her any help she may need from you, for she has been a great help to many people, including me.

Greet Priscilla and Aquila, my fellow workers in Christ Jesus.  They risked their lives for me.  Not only I but all the churches of the Gentiles are grateful to them.

Greet also the church that meets at their house.  Greet my dear friend Epenetus, who was the first convert to Christ in the province of Asia. Greet Mary who worked very hard for you.

Greet Andronicus  and Junias, my relatives who have been in prison with me.  They are outstanding among the apostles, and they were in Christ before I was.

This is the word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

*The Opening Hymn # 261        Wonderful Words of Life

The Scripture Lesson

Titus 2: 3-5

Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good.  Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.

Colossians 3:18

Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.

Ephesians 5: 22-24  

Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord for the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior.

Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.

This is the word of God for the people of God.

Thanks be to God.
