CALL TO WORSHIP
O come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation.
Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.
For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
CONFESSION OF SIN
There are many times we think we love you well, O God. But upon hearing your call to love you with all our heart, and all our mind, and all our strength, we confess that our love for you is a diluted love, made insipid and flat by lesser loyalties and a divided heart. Our love seems pure only for brief moments; soon our affections are drawn away. How easily our devotion dies. Forgive us; in deep mercy spare us, despite our lost first love for you; in grace rekindle our love for you in seeing anew Jesus’ love for us. Amen.
ASSURANCE OF PARDON
He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, so that, free from sins, we might live for righteousness;
by his wounds you have been healed.
—1 Peter 2:24, NRSV—
