Good morning! Welcome to Redeemer Gathered.
We gather together each week to remember God is Holy. He initiates this relationship with us and we get to respond to Him. Let’s sing and read knowing we have a perfect, loving Heavenly Father who “bends to bless us with an unrelenting love.”
Will you read with me:
This I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: the steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
“The LORD is my portion,” says my soul,
“therefore I will hope in him.”
Song: Rejoice (Dustin Kensrue)
As we worship a Holy God, we are faced with our own sinfulness. We gather weekly with baggage; guilt; anxieties; and even so, we are met with something so much greater. God’s grace. It is this free grace that allows us to come before him and confess our sin that we might find healing. Let’s confess before the Lord
In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength, but you would have none of it.
Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the LORD is God of justice.
Blessed are all who wait for him!
—Isaiah 30:15, 18
Let’s take a moment to silently
confess before the Lord.
Song: Before The Throne of God Above (King’s Kaleidoscope)
We are now identified by the precious blood of Jesus. His finished work accomplished all that was necessary to pay our debt and make us right with God. Let us respond joyfully to the good news of the gospel.
The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost. But I received mercy for this reason, that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might display his perfect patience as an example to those who were to believe in him for eternal life. To the King of the ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever.
–1 Timothy 1:15-17
Song: In the Shadow of the Glorious Cross (Sojourn)
In christ, we have peace with God the Father and with one another. Let’s take a moment to greet one another in the spirit of this peace.
“Peace be with you!”
Song: Oh God (Dustin Kensrue)

Song: Fix My Eyes (King’s Kaleidoscope)
Song: Ten Thousand Reasons (Matt Redman)
Let us commit to knowing, believing, and living out the hope of the Gospel in our lives.
What do you believe when you say, “I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth”?
That the eternal Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who out of nothing created heaven and earth and everything in them, who still upholds and rules them by His eternal counsel and providence, is my God and Father because of Christ His Son. I trust Him so much that I do not doubt He will provide whatever I need for body and soul, and He will turn to my good whatever adversity He sends me in this sad world. He is able to do this because He is almighty God; He desires to do this because He is a faithful Father.
–Heidelberg Catechism Question 26
Song: Everything (Tim Hughes)
The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.
