Christians have the great hope that flows from the promise and oath of God regarding his purpose to bless the earth through the seed of Abraham, Jesus.
The breadth and depth of God’s saving purpose are reflected in our songs of preparation There’s A Wideness In God’s Mercy and Sovereign Grace O’er Sin Abounding. Worship commences as we sing the words of Psalm 121, I To The Hills Will Lift My Eyes.
The prayer of adoration and confession focus on God’s great love and care in giving his word about the salvation of his people and the times when our actions and thoughts show our trust in his oath and promise waver.
It’s Your Blood That Cleanses Me, The Apostles’ Creed and Unto God Be Praise And Honour are the expression of faith and assurance.
From God’s Word Lamentations 2:1-22 contains Jeremiah’s second lament, for Zion under the righteous anger of the Lord.
The Splendour Of The King (How Great Is Our God) will be our sung response.
After hearing Hebrews 6:13-20, we’ll consider the source of hope, the anchor for the soul which the patriarch Abraham rested in, and in which all of Abraham’s descendants find their rest, the Lord Jesus.
Before our pastoral prayers we’ll view a video about the possibility of commencing a program of teaching conversational English in the near future. After prayer we’ll give out tithes and offerings then close our worship singing Come, O Long Expected Jesus.
