Liturgy #4

Confession of Faith

We confess and acknowledge one God alone, to whom alone we must cleave, whom alone we must serve, whom only we must worship, and in whom alone we put our trust. Who is eternal, infinite, immeasurable, incomprehensible, omnipotent, invisible; one in substance and yet distinct in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. By whom we confess and believe all things in heaven and earth, visible and invisible to have been created, to be retained in their being, and to be ruled and guided by his inscrutable providence for such end as his eternal wisdom, goodness, and justice have appointed, and to the manifestation of his own glory.

Greeting

Grace and peace to you from God our Father through our Lord Jesus Christ by the operation of His Spirit. Amen.

Call to Worship

Psalm 95:1-2 (NASB)

O come, let us sing for joy to the Lord, Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation. 2 Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving, Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.

Ephesians 4:25-32 (NASB)

25 Therefore, laying aside falsehood, speak truth each one of you with his neighbor, for we are members of one another. 26 Be angry, and yet do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, 27 and do not give the devil an opportunity. 28 He who steals must steal no longer; but rather he must labor, performing with his own hands what is good, so that he will have something to share with one who has need. 29 Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear. 30 Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. 32 Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.

Confession of Sin

Almighty and most merciful Father, we have erred and strayed from Your ways like lost sheep. We have offended against Your holy laws. We have left undone things which we ought to have done, and we have done those things which we ought not to have done; and there is no health in us. O Lord have mercy upon us miserable offenders and grant that we may hereafter life a godly, righteous and sober life, to the glory of Your holy name. Amen.

Absolution

Whosoever believes in the Lord Jesus Christ has the forgiveness of sin, Christ’s perfect righteousness and everlasting life. As you hold this faith, you are forgiven all your sins in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
