Congregation: And all flesh will see it together. Isaiah 40:5

CALL TO WORSHIP—From Psalm 89
Pastor: There is no one like You among the gods, O Lord, Nor are there any works like Yours.
People: For You are great and do wondrous deeds; You alone are God.
Pastor: I will give thanks to You, O Lord my God, with all my heart, And will glorify Your name forever.
People: For Your lovingkindness toward me is great, And You have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.
All: Turn to me, and be gracious to me; Oh grant Your strength to Your servant, And save the son of Your handmaid. Show me a sign for good, That those who hate me may see it and be ashamed, Because You, O LORD, have helped me and comforted me.
SONG—Who Is Like Our God?
After the Prayer of Confession the pastor says...
Pastor: Listen now to the comforting assurance of the grace of God, promised in the gospel to all who believe…
ASSURANCE OF PARDON—Romans 8:33-34
Pastor: Who will bring a charge against God's elect? God is the one who justifies; who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us.
Pastor: Lift up your hearts!
Congregation: We lift them up to the Lord!
