Corporate Call: 

Lord, it is so foreign to us, the notion that in your presence there is no distinction between the rich and the poor, the young and the old, the citizen and the alien, but all whom you have redeemed are precious in your sight. You have chosen the weak things of this world to put the strong to shame, and you have chosen things which are dishonorable, despised and of no account, in order to bring to nothing the things that boast. Yet, Lord, our sinful hearts love to tear apart that which you have sown together. With evil thoughts we judge other people, we despise those who you love, and we exalt those who curse you.  We are so easily impressed with those whom before you melt like wax, and we long for the glory of ashes when you have placed eternity in our hearts. Lord, we come before you as fickle men and women unworthy to stand in your presence. So we confess our sins before you now

Response: Father, forgive us.       

Song: Your Mercy”

 

IV. Assurance of Pardon

Corporate Call: 

Church, the mercy of our Father is a mystery our feeble minds cannot fathom. Within the triune God there is a grace so glorious that we could easily drown in its melody, we sink into its beauty as the power of the gospel restores his people, may our lips never stop singing praises to the king who sits on the throne. Oh Church, in Christ there is a radiant righteousness that wraps us in robes of royalty, where we stand not as wretches but as redeemed.  We rejoice now and for all time for the lamb has received the wrath of our rebellion. He has pardoned us from the penalty of our sins and has paved the path to paradise by the power of his resurrection. Church, you have this assurance of pardon that by the powerful name of Jesus your sins are forgiven

Response:  Praise be to God!

Song: King Of Love"
