Morning Worship May 24, 2020

  • Greetings
  • *Call to Worship: Psalm 67:1-3

May God be gracious to us and bless us
    and make his face to shine upon us, 
that your way may be known on earth,
    your saving power among all nations.
Let the peoples praise you, O God;
    let all the peoples praise you!

  • *Invocation
  • Confession of Sin

You, O Lord, have promised, that if we will confess our sins, you are faithful and just to forgive us our sins.  We come humbly seeking your forgiveness, that we may know the joy of your presence, and the light of your face.  You alone know how often we have offended you, and hurt others.  Forgive us for every unkind thought, every untrue word, every selfish act.  Forgive us for our ingratitude, our neglect of prayer, our carelessness in the use of money, our forgetfulness of sacred vows we have taken.  O God, have mercy upon us!  Create in us clean hearts, and renew a right spirit within us, for the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

  • Promise of Forgiveness: Ephesians 2:8-10 

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.  For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.             

  • Old Testament Reading: Psalm 80:7-19

Restore us, O God of hosts;
    let your face shine, that we may be saved!

You brought a vine out of Egypt;
    you drove out the nations and planted it.
You cleared the ground for it;
    it took deep root and filled the land.
10 The mountains were covered with its shade,
    the mighty cedars with its branches.
11 It sent out its branches to the sea
    and its shoots to the River.
12 Why then have you broken down its walls,
    so that all who pass along the way pluck its fruit?
13 The boar from the forest ravages it,
    and all that move in the field feed on it.

14 Turn again, O God of hosts!
    Look down from heaven, and see;
have regard for this vine,
15     the stock that your right hand planted,
    and for the son whom you made strong for yourself.
16 They have burned it with fire; they have cut it down;
    may they perish at the rebuke of your face!
17 But let your hand be on the man of your right hand,
    the son of man whom you have made strong for yourself!
18 Then we shall not turn back from you;
    give us life, and we will call upon your name!

19 Restore us, O Lord God of hosts!
    Let your face shine, that we may be saved!

  • Affirmation of Faith: Heidelberg Catechism, Questions 1 & 86

Q: What is your only comfort in life and in death?

A: That I am not my own, but belong— body and soul,
in life and in death—to my faithful Savior, Jesus Christ. He has fully paid for all my sins with his precious blood, and has set me free from the tyranny of the devil. He also watches over me in such a way that not a hair can fall from my head without the will of my Father in heaven; in fact, all things must work together for my salvation. Because I belong to him, Christ, by his Holy Spirit, assures me of eternal life and makes me wholeheartedly willing and ready from now on to live for him.

Q: Since we have been delivered from our misery by grace through Christ without any merit of our own, why then should we do good works?

A: Because Christ, having redeemed us by his blood, is also restoring us by his Spirit into his image, so that with our whole lives we may show that we are thankful to God for his benefits, so that he may be praised through us, so that we may be assured of our faith by its fruits, and so that by our godly living our neighbors may be won over to Christ.

  • Prayers for the Church and the World
  • Sermon Text: John 15:1-17 

“I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. Already you are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away like a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples. As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. 10 If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love. 11 These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.

12 “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command you. 15 No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. 16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. 17 These things I command you, so that you will love one another.

Hymn Lyrics

  • 110 Hallelujah, Praise Jehovah

Hallelujah, praise Jehovah, from the heavens praise his name;

praise Jehovah in the highest, all his angels, praise proclaim,

All his hosts together praise him, sun and moon and stars on high;

praise him, O you heav'ns of heavens, and you floods above the sky.


Let them praises give Jehovah, for his name alone is high,

and his glory is exalted, and his glory is exalted,

and his glory is exalted far above the earth and sky.


Let them praises give Jehovah, they were made at his command

them forever he established, his decree shall ever stand.

From the earth, O praise Jehovah, all you seas, you monsters all,

fire and hail and snow and vapors, stormy winds that hear his call.


Let them praises give Jehovah, for his name alone is high,

and his glory is exalted, and his glory is exalted,

and his glory is exalted far above the earth and sky.


All you fruitful trees and cedars, all you hills and mountains high,

creeping things and beasts and cattle, birds that in the heavens fly,

kings of earth, and all you people, princes great, earth's judges all;

praise his name, young men and maidens, aged men, and children small.


Let them praises give Jehovah, for his name alone is high,

and his glory is exalted, and his glory is exalted,

and his glory is exalted far above the earth and sky. 

  • 715 Come, Ye Thankful People, Come

Come, ye thankful people, come,raise the song of harvest home:

all is safely gathered in, ere the winter storms begin;

God, our Maker, doth provide for our wants to be supplied:

come to God's own temple, come, raise the song of harvest home.


All the world is God's own field, fruit unto his praise to yield;

wheat and tares together sown, unto joy or sorrow grown:

first the blade, and then the ear, then the full corn shall appear:

Lord of harvest, grant that we wholesome grain and pure may be.


For the Lord our God shall come, and shall take his harvest home;

from his field shall in that day all offenses purge away;

give his angels charge at last in the fire the tares to cast,

but the fruitful ears to store in his garner evermore.


Even so, Lord, quickly come to thy final harvest home;

gather thou thy people in, free from sorrow, free from sin;

there forever purified, in thy presence to abide:

come, with all thine angels, come, raise the glorious harvest home.
