The Christian’s Inheritance – CRC Sunday Sermon

(links to hymns and the sermon are in blue font)

Pastoral Reading
Psalm 14

The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”
    They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds;
    there is none who does good.

The Lord looks down from heaven on the children of man,
    to see if there are any who understand,
    who seek after God.

They have all turned aside; together they have become corrupt;
    there is none who does good,
    not even one.

Have they no knowledge, all the evildoers
    who eat up my people as they eat bread
    and do not call upon the Lord?

There they are in great terror,
    for God is with the generation of the righteous.
You would shame the plans of the poor,
    but the Lord is his refuge.

Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!
    When the Lord restores the fortunes of his people,
    let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad.

Pastoral Reading
Psalm 13

How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever?
    How long will you hide your face from me?
How long must I take counsel in my soul
    and have sorrow in my heart all the day?
How long shall my enemy be exalted over me?

Consider and answer me, O Lord my God;
    light up my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death,
lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed over him,”
    lest my foes rejoice because I am shaken.

But I have trusted in your steadfast love;
    my heart shall rejoice in your salvation.
I will sing to the Lord,
    because he has dealt bountifully with me.

Salvation is of the Lord – CRC Sunday Sermon

Pastoral Reading
Psalm 12
Save, O Lord, for the godly one is gone;
for the faithful have vanished from among the children of man.
2 Everyone utters lies to his neighbor;
with flattering lips and a double heart they speak.
3 May the Lord cut off all flattering lips,
the tongue that makes great boasts,
4 those who say, “With our tongue we will prevail,
our lips are with us; who is master over us?”
5 “Because the poor are plundered, because the needy groan,
I will now arise,” says the Lord;
“I will place him in the safety for which he longs.”
6 The words of the Lord are pure words,
like silver refined in a furnace on the ground,
purified seven times.
7 You, O Lord, will keep them;
you will guard us from this generation forever.
8 On every side the wicked prowl,
as vileness is exalted among the children of man.

Offering Hymn
To You Alone (HMA #124)

Let us join our hearts together
and give thanks in one accord.
We would glorify the Father
and give praise to Christ, our Lord.
O, indwelling Holy Spirit,
guide our thoughts and tongues we pray,
For our pride and selfish vanity
too often cloud our praise.

To You along we sing today;
To You along our prayers we raise.
To You alone we give the glory,
For You alone, Lord, are worthy of our praise.

O, what joy there is in knwoikng
Jesus Christ is lord of all,
That each step in my life’s journey
is in answer to His call.
In the cheerful meditation
that His blood has ransomed me,
I find hope and reassurance
His plan is best for me. Chorus
