Call to Worship                                                                 Romans 9:17-18

For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, “For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I might show my power in you, and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.” So then he has mercy on whomever he wills, and he hardens whomever he wills.

Invocation

* Hymn # 75                                               “O Father, You Are Sovereign”

1 O Father, you are sovereign

in all the worlds you made;

your mighty word was spoken,

and light and life obeyed.

Your voice commands the seasons

and bounds the ocean’s shore,

sets stars within their courses

and stills the tempest’s roar.

 2 O Father, you are sovereign

in all affairs of man;

no pow’rs of death or darkness

can thwart your perfect plan.

All chance and change transcending,

supreme in time and space,

you hold your trusting children

secure in your embrace.

 3 O Father, you are sovereign,

the Lord of human pain,

transmuting earthly sorrows

to gold of heav’nly gain.

All evil overruling,

as none but Conqu’ror could,

your love pursues its purpose –

our souls’ eternal good.

 4 O Father, you are sovereign!

We see you dimly now,

but soon before your triumph

earth’s ev’ry knee shall bow.

With this glad hope before us,

our faith springs up anew:

our sovereign Lord and Savior,

we trust and worship you!

* Scripture Reading:

Old Testament

Psalm 8:1–9 (What Is Man?)

To the choirmaster: according to The Gittith. A Psalm of David.

O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!  You have set your glory above the heavens.  Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger.  When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?  Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.  You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet, all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the seas.  O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

New Testament

Matthew 28:18 (Christ’s Universal Dominion)

And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.”

* Pastor: This is the Word of our God.

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

Affirmation of Faith Westminster Confession of Faith III.5 Of God’s Eternal Decree

Those of mankind that are predestinated unto life, God, before the foundation of the world was laid, according to his eternal and immutable purpose, and the secret counsel and good pleasure of his will, hath chosen, in Christ, unto everlasting glory, out of his mere free grace and love, without any foresight of faith, or good works, or perseverance in either of them, or any other thing in the creature, as conditions, or causes moving him thereunto; and all to the praise of his glorious grace.

Pastoral Prayer 

* Hymn # 647                             “How Sweet the Name of Jesus Sounds”

1 How sweet the name of Jesus sounds

in a believer’s ear!

It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds,

and drives away his fear. 

2 It makes the wounded spirit whole,

and calms the troubled breast;

’tis manna to the hungry soul,

and to the weary, rest. 

3 Dear Name! the rock on which I build,
my shield and hiding place,
my never-failing treas’ry filled
with boundless stores of grace;

4 Jesus, my Shepherd, Brother, Friend,
my Prophet, Priest, and King,
my Lord, my Life, my Way, my End,
accept the praise I bring.

5 Weak is the effort of my heart,
and cold my warmest thought;
but when I see thee as thou art,
I’ll praise thee as I ought.

6 Till then I would thy love proclaim
with every fleeting breath;
and may the music of thy name
refresh my soul in death.

    Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and how inscrutable His ways!
    For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been His counselor? Or who has given a gift to Him that he might be repaid?
    For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be glory forever. Amen.
