Worship Notes for June 9, 2013

June 6, 2013

The sermon series on the Luke 11 and the Lord’s Prayer continues with “Lead Us Not Into Temptation” and so we will focus on temptation and our great High Priest who was tempted even as we are. The Call to Worship from Psalm 31 refers to the Lo9rd as our refuge and fortress who leads, preserves, and recues His people. He continue by singing Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah and Psalm 27: God is My Strong Salvation—“In darkness and temptation, my Light, my Help is near.”

The New Testament Reading from Hebrews 2 reminds us that Christ suffered when tempted and is able to help us as we are tempted. The Prayer of Confession from James 1 focuses on standing firm under trial, not submitting to temptation knowing that our sinful desires give birth to sin which brings forth death. Isaiah 43 reminds us that the Lord, our God, leads us through the trials of life.

For Communion we will sing Holy Father and At the Name of Jesus—a wonderful hymn on the person of Christ who is our “Captain in temptation’s hour.” We conclude with Jesus, What a Friend for Sinners—“tempted, tried, and sometimes failing, He, my strength, my victory wins!”
