Prelude 

Greeting and Announcements 

Meditation

In adoption to God the Father is a spirit of reverence, for who can so approach the holy and infinitely majestic God without deep awe! An affectionate, yet humble fear, is a necessary characteristic of a child of God.

New Testament

Matthew 15:19–20 (Sin Arises from the Heart)

*Congregation: The grass withers, the flower fades, but the Word of our God stands forever.

Affirmation of Faith         Westminster Confession of Faith, CHAPTER VI.

Of the Fall of Man, of Sin, and of the Punishment thereof

IV. From this original corruption, whereby we are utterly indisposed, disabled, and made opposite to all good, and wholly inclined to all evil, do proceed all actual transgressions.

V. This corruption of nature, during this life, doth remain in those that are regenerated: and although it be through Christ pardoned and mortified, yet both itself, and all the motions thereof, are truly and properly sin.

VI. Every sin, both original and actual, being a transgression of the righteous law of God, and contrary thereunto, doth, in its own nature, bring guilt upon the sinner, whereby he is bound over to the wrath of God, and curse of the law, and so made subject to death, with all miseries spiritual, temporal, and eternal.

Pastoral Prayer

Praise Him above, ye heavenly host; praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.  Amen.

Sermon Series: Romans 

* Sermon Text: Romans 1:26-27

26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

* Pastor: Thus far the reading of God’s holy Word. And may God add His blessing to the reading of His Word.

* Congregation: Thanks be to God!

And the fellowship of God the Spirit keep our hearts and minds within His love.

And to Him be praise for His glorious reign, from the depths of earth to the heights of Heaven;

We declare the name of the Lamb once slain – Christ eternal the King of Kings!
