Prelude

Greeting and Announcements

Meditation
In the October number of the Gospel Magazine, 1775, in an article on “Life a Journey,” and signed Minimus (one of Toplady’s signatures), the following occurs at pg. 474:
“Yet, if you fall, be humbled; but do not despair. Pray afresh to God, who is able to raise you up, and to set you on your feet again. Look to the blood of the covenant and say to the Lord, from the depth of your heart, ‘Rock of Ages, cleft for me, let me hide myself in thee! Foul, I to the fountain fly: wash me, Saviour, or I die.’ Make those words of the apostle, your motto: ‘Perplexed, but not in despair; cast down, but not destroyed.'”

Call to Worship     Isaiah 6:1–3
1 In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple. 2 Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3 And one called to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!”

Invocation

* Hymn # 100     “Holy, Holy, Holy”

Call to Confession     Isaiah 6:4–5
4 And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, and the house was filled with smoke. 5 And I said: “Woe is me! For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts!”

Prayer of Confession

Assurance of Pardon     Isaiah 6:6–7
6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a burning coal that he had taken with tongs from the altar. 7 And he touched my mouth and said: “Behold, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away, and your sin atoned for.”

* Hymn Supplement pg. 44     “Before the Throne of God Above”

* Old & New Testament Reading: (OT) Habakkuk 2:1-4 (NT) John 3:13–21
Old Testament
Habakkuk 2:1-4 (The Righteous May Hope for Life from God)
1 I will take my stand at my watchpost and station myself on the tower, and look out to see what he will say to me, and what I will answer concerning my complaint. 2 And the Lord answered me: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. 3 For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay. 4 “Behold, his soul is puffed up; it is not upright within him, but the righteous shall live by his faith.

New Testament
John 3:13–21 (Whoever Believes Shall Not Perish but Have Eternal Life)
13 No one has ascended into heaven except he who descended from heaven, the Son of Man. 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes in him may have eternal life. 16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. 19 And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. 20 For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. 21 But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.”

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