Spirit and Truth: Frankfort 9/21/14

Call to Worship

We begin each week with a scripture reading known as the Call to Worship. This serves as a reminder that all true worship begins with God –He is the one who initiates this divine conversation with His people and we respond.

Scripture Reading: Psalm 95:1-3

Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! 2 Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! 3 For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods.

Welcome and Prayer

Responsive Confession

  • Leader: O Holy God, we confess that we have sinned against you.  In the moment of our sinning, we have loved our sin more than You. We have often forgotten the price you paid to set us free from sin and death.
  • People: But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Jesus Christ humbled Himself to the point of death, even death on a cross.
  • Leader: He became sin that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. He became a curse for us in order to redeem us from the curse of the law. Through His death on the cross, He has reconciled us to God and brought us peace.
  • People: Since He has taken our sin upon Himself, we pray that we, through the power of His Spirit, might die to sin and live to righteousness. Amen.

The Preaching of God’s Word

Scripture Reading: Romans 7:5-12

Sermon: Defeated by Sin through the Law; Romans 7:5-12

Worship through Response

After the sermon, we respond in a number of ways –through singing, prayer, the Offering, and the Lord’s Supper.

The Offering: As followers of Christ and as members of The Point Community Church, we joyfully participate in giving a portion of our income in a regular sacrificial way.

The Lord’s Supper: As a church, sharing the Lord’s Supper is a significant event where believers gratefully acknowledge the death of Christ as the fully payment for our sin.

Sending

Announcements and Prayer

Song: “What A Savior” by Philip Bliss and Devon Kauflin

Every week before we leave, we receive a benediction, or blessing, from God’s Word.  Just as the worship gathering begins with God’s call, it ends with God’s promise of his blessing over us as we leave to go and be the church.

Benediction and Sending: Jude 1:24-25

Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, 25 to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.

Go and be the church!
