WORSHIP FOR AUGUST 30, 2020

 

Call to Worship from Psalm 31

In you, Lord, I have taken refuge

Let me never be put to shame. Deliver me in your righteousness.

Turn your ear to me. Come quickly to my rescue.

Be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save me.
Since you are my rock and my fortress,
lead and guide me, for the sake of your name.
Let your face shine upon your servant.
Save me in your unfailing love!

 

Praise Song: Victory in Jesus

I heard an old, old story,

how a Savior came from glory

How He gave His life on Calvary

to save a wretch like me

I heard about His groaning,

of His precious blood's atoning

Then I repented of my sins and won the victory

 

Oh victory in Jesus, my Savior forever

He sought me and bought me

with His redeeming blood

He loved me 'ere I knew Him

and all my love is due Him

He plunged me to victory

beneath the cleansing flood

 

I heard about His healing,

of His cleansing power revealing

How He made the lame to walk again

and 'caused the blind to see

And then I cried, "Dear Jesus,

come and heal my broken spirit"

And somehow Jesus came and brought

to me the victory

 

I heard about a mansion

He has built for me in glory.

And I heard about the streets of gold

Beyond the crystal sea;

About the angels singing,

And the old redemption story,

And some sweet day I'll sing up there

The song of victory.

 

The Nicene Creed

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.

 

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father; through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven, was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary and became truly human. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.

 

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

 

Scripture- Matthew 7:21-27

[21] “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. [22] On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ [23] And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’

[24] “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. [25] And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. [26] And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. [27] And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.” (ESV)

 

Sermon: “Sermons on the Sermon on the Mount: Two Destinations and Two Foundations” -Pastor Jordan Rimmer

 

 

Closing Hymn- The Solid Rock

My hope is built on nothing less

Than Jesus' blood and righteousness

And I dare not trust the sweetest frame

But wholly lean on Jesus' Name

 

On Christ the solid Rock I stand

And all other ground is sinking sand

And all other ground is sinking sand

 

When darkness seems to hide His face

I rest on His unchanging grace

In every high and stormy gale

My anchor holds within the veil

 

His oath, His covenant, His blood

Support me in the whelming flood

When all around my soul gives way

He then is all my Hope and Stay

 

When He shall come with trumpet sound

Oh, may I then in Him be found

Dressed in His righteousness alone

Faultless to stand before the throne
