The Order for the Worship of God

Follow along by watching our livestream on our YouTube channel at 930a on Sunday.

Let the first tone of the organ be a call to quiet meditation in which all may become aware of God’s presence, and lift up a prayer for yourself and for Faith Church.

Confession of Sin and Assurance of Pardon

Psalter     Psalm 34     (ESV)          Mike Bergmann

Of David, when he changed his behavior before Abimelech, so that he drove him out, and he went away.

1I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

2My soul makes its boast in the Lord; let the humble hear and be glad.
3Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together!

4I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears.
5Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed.
6This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him and saved him out of all his troubles.
7The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them.

8Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
9Oh, fear the Lord, you his saints, for those who fear him have no lack!

10The young lions suffer want and hunger; but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.

11Come, O children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
12What man is there who desires life and loves many days, that he may see good?
13Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit.
14Turn away from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.

15The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous and his ears toward their cry.

16The face of the Lord is against those who do evil, to cut off the memory of them from the earth.

17When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles.

18The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.

19Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.

20He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken.
21Affliction will slay the wicked, and those who hate the righteous will be condemned.
22The Lord redeems the life of his servants; none of those who take refuge in him will be condemned.

Prayer for Illumination

Old Testament Reading     Leviticus 19:1-4, 9-17, 33-37   

       19 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2“Speak to all the congregation of the people of Israel and say to them, You shall be holy, for I the Lord your God am holy. 3Every one of you shall revere his mother and his father, and you shall keep my Sabbaths: I am the Lord your God. 4Do not turn to idols or make for yourselves any gods of cast metal: I am the Lord your God.

       9“When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not reap your field right up to its edge, neither shall you gather the gleanings after your harvest. 10And you shall not strip your vineyard bare, neither shall you gather the fallen grapes of your vineyard. You shall leave them for the poor and for the sojourner: I am the Lord your God.

       11“You shall not steal; you shall not deal falsely; you shall not lie to one another. 12You shall not swear by my name falsely, and so profane the name of your God: I am the Lord.

       13“You shall not oppress your neighbor or rob him. The wages of a hired worker shall not remain with you all night until the morning. 14You shall not curse the deaf or put a stumbling block before the blind, but you shall fear your God: I am the Lord.

       15“You shall do no injustice in court. You shall not be partial to the poor or defer to the great, but in righteousness shall you judge your neighbor. 16You shall not go around as a slanderer among your people, and you shall not stand up against the life of your neighbor: I am the Lord.

       17“You shall not hate your brother in your heart, but you shall reason frankly with your neighbor, lest you incur sin because of him.

       33“When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. 34You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God. 35“You shall do no wrong in judgment, in measures of length or weight or quantity. 36You shall have just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin: I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt. 37And you shall observe all my statutes and all my rules, and do them: I am the Lord.”

Lector: This is the Word of the Lord.

Congregation: Thanks be to God for His Word.

Children’s Sermon

Hymn     # 452     He Leadeth Me          (Gray Psalter Hymnal)

New Testament Reading     1 Peter 1:13-25

       13Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 14As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, 15but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 16since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.” 17And if you call on him as Father who judges impartially according to each one's deeds, conduct yourselves with fear throughout the time of your exile, 18knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, 19but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot. 20He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you 21who through him are believers in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.

       22Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart, 23since you have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God; 24for

       “All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass.
The grass withers, and the flower falls, 25but the word of the Lord remains forever.”

       And this word is the good news that was preached to you.
