THE DEMANDS OF HOPE

I. OPENING
Song: "Tally HO"

II. CALL TO WORSHIP
Reading: Psalm 134
Call: THIS IS THE WORD OF THE LORD.
Response: THANKS BE TO GOD!

Song: “Where Were You”
Song: “Lord Have Mercy”

III. CONFESSION
Individual Call: Psalm 139:23-24
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart!
Try me and know my thoughts!
24 And see if there be any grievous way in me,
 and lead me in the way everlasting!

Corporate Call:
Lord, fear has rattled our hearts. The voices that echo in our minds are voices of despair, worry, and self-preservation. You tell us not to fear, for you have overcome the world, yet fear has gripped our hearts.  Hope and courage seem to dissolve as we rehearse the lies of the world in our minds. Your word calls us to walk by faith, yet we walk by sight; you tell us to be strong and courageous, yet we shrink back in cowardice. Oh God, we confess this shameful behavior, we confess our wicked faithlessness, we confess that we have feared the world more than we have feared you. And it is for this reason that we come to you seeking your mercy and grace according to the eternal of love you have for us in Christ. So Father, hear our cry.

Response: Father, forgive us.

IV. ASSURANCE OF PARDON
Church, your prayers have not failed, for your confession has ascended to the right hand of the Father, where the Great High Priest has now interceded on your behalf.

My friends, though fear has gripped your hearts, know that we serve the Christ who has overcome the world. For he is the great and mighty king who is victorious over the powers of darkness, he has closed the mouths of every accusing scream, and he has put the works of the evil one to open shame.  By his cross and resurrection, Jesus the Christ, the ruler of heaven and earth, the great I AM, has set you free, and has given you the eternal hope of victory. And this is good news!

So Church lift up your hearts and hear these words, The victorious King, the ruler of heaven and earth, has declared this day, your sins are forgiven!

Response: Thanks be to God!

Song: "In Christ Alone"

VII. COMMUNION
As a child of the King, you may eat and drink at the table He has prepared for you. Together we shall celebrate His victory & proclaim His death until He returns to feast with us again. Take heart; He has not forgotten you.

Deuteronomy 31:6 -  Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
