* God’s Greeting

* Opening Time of Singing 

Your Grace Is Enough

Verse 1

Great is Your faithfulness O God
You wrestle with the sinner's restless heart
You lead us by still waters into mercy
And nothing can keep us apart

Pre-Chorus

(So) remember Your people
Remember Your children
Remember Your promise O God

Chorus 1

Your grace is enough
Your grace is enough
Your grace is enough for me

Verse 2

Great is Your love and justice God of Jacob
You use the weak to lead the strong
You lead us in the song of Your salvation
And all Your people sing along

Chorus 2

Yeah Your grace is enough
Heaven reaches out to us
Your grace is enough for me
God I sing Your grace is enough
I'm covered in Your love
Your grace is enough for me for me

Nobody

Verse 1

Why You ever chose me
Has always been a mystery
All my life I've been told I belong
At the end of the line
With all the other Not-Quites
With all the Never-Get-It-Rights
But it turns out they're the ones
You were looking for
All this time

Chorus

('Cause) I'm just a nobody
Tryin' to tell everybody
Well all about Somebody
Who saved my soul
Ever since You rescued me
You gave my heart a song to sing
I'm living for the world to see nobody but Jesus
I'm living for the world to see nobody but Jesus

Verse 2

Well Moses had stage fright
And David brought a rock to a sword fight
You picked twelve outsiders nobody would've chosen
And You changed the world
Well the moral of the story is
Everybody's got a purpose
So when I hear that devil start talking to me saying
Who do you think you are
I say

Bridge

So let me go down down down in history
As another blood-bought
Faithful member of the family
And if they all forget my name
Well that's fine with me
I'm living for the world to see nobody but Jesus
I'm living for the world to see nobody but Jesus

Who You Say I Am

Verse 1

Who am I that the highest King
Would welcome me
I was lost but He brought me in
Oh His love for me
Oh His love for me

Chorus 1

Who the Son sets free
Oh is free indeed
I'm a child of God
Yes I am

Verse 2

Free at last
He has ransomed me
His grace runs deep
While I was a slave to sin
Jesus died for me
Yes He died for me

Chorus 2

In my Father's house
There's a place for me
I'm a child of God
Yes I am

Bridge

I am chosen not forsaken
I am who You say I am
You are for me not against me
I am who You say I am

(Oh) (Yes) I am who You say I am

Guide for Living: Psalm 51:1-5 (CSB)

1 Be gracious to me, God, 

according to your faithful love; 

according to your abundant compassion, 

blot out my rebellion. 

2 Completely wash away my guilt 

and cleanse me from my sin. 

3 For I am conscious of my rebellion, 

and my sin is always before me. 

4 Against you—you alone—I have sinned 

and done this evil in your sight. 

So you are right when you pass sentence; 

you are blameless when you judge.

5 Indeed, I was guilty when I was born; 

I was sinful when my mother conceived me.

 Christian Standard Bible (Nashville, TN: Holman Bible Publishers, 2020), Ps 51:1–5.

 

Assurance of Pardon: 1 Peter 2:24 (CSB)

24 He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree; so that, having died to sins, we might live for righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.

 Christian Standard Bible (Nashville, TN: Holman Bible Publishers, 2020), 1 Pe 2:24.

 

Celebration of the Lord’s Supper

The Institution
Minister: We give thanks to God the Father that our Savior, Jesus Christ, before he suffered, gave us this memorial of his sacrifice, until he comes again. At his last supper, the Lord Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it [here the minister breaks the bread] and said, "This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me." In the same way, he took the cup after supper [here the minister pours the wine] and said, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this in remembrance of me." For whenever we eat this bread and drink this cup, we proclaim the Lord's death until he comes (1 Corinthians 11:23-26). Therefore we proclaim our faith as signed and sealed in this sacrament: Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ will come again.

Prayer of Consecration

Minister: Lord, our God, send your Holy Spirit so that this bread and cup may be for us the body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. May we and all your saints be united with Christ and remain faithful in hope and love. Gather your whole church, O Lord, into the glory of your kingdom. We pray in the name of Jesus, who taught us to pray, 
All: "Our Father in heaven who art in heaven hallowed be your name your kingdom come your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us of your sins as we forgive those who have sinned against us; lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil; for yours is the kingdom and power and the glory for ever and ever Amen."

The Invitation

Minister: Congregation of Jesus Christ, the Lord has prepared his table for all who love him and trust in him alone for their salvation. All who

are truly sorry for their sins, who sincerely believe in the Lord Jesus as their Savior, and who desire to live in obedience to him as Lord, are now invited to come with gladness to the table of the Lord.

[Indicating the elements, the minister proclaims,]
The gifts of God for the people of God!

The Communion 
Minister: Take, eat, remember, and believe that the body of our Lord Jesus Christ was given for the complete forgiveness of all our sins.
Take, drink, remember, and believe that the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ was given for the complete forgiveness of all our sins.

Guide for Living: Galatians 5:19-21 (CSB)

19 Now the works of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, moral impurity, promiscuity, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatreds, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambitions, dissensions, factions, 21 envy, drunkenness, carousing, and anything similar. I am warning you about these things—as I warned you before—that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

 Christian Standard Bible (Nashville, TN: Holman Bible Publishers, 2020), Ga 5:19–21.

 

Assurance of Pardon: Galatians 5:22-26

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. The law is not against such things. 24 Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.

 Christian Standard Bible (Nashville, TN: Holman Bible Publishers, 2020), Ga 5:22–26.

 

Congregational Prayer

Children’s Sermon (OPTIONAL) YES

 

Bible Reading: Luke 19:1-10

Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through. 2 A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy. 3 He wanted to see who Jesus was, but being a short man he could not, because of the crowd. 4 So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way. 

5 When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.” 6 So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly. 

7 All the people saw this and began to mutter, “He has gone to be the guest of a ‘sinner.’ ” 

8 But Zacchaeus stood up and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount.” 

9 Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.” 

 

 The Holy Bible: New International Version (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 1984), Lk 19:1–10.

 

Sermon: Jesus seeking and saving the lost.
