Worship Notes for Sunday, July 28, 2013

July 25, 2013

The fear of the Lord, fear of man, and the godly comfort of “Do not fear” along with the boldness of acknowledging Christ before men form some of the backdrop of our passage from Luke 12. The service begins with godly fear from Psalm 22 in the Call to Worship—You who fear the Lord, praise Him! We continue with singing Holy, Holy, Holy! and God is My Strong Salvation—What foe have I to fear?

The New Testament Reading from I John 4 reminds us that we have confidence on the day of judgment because the perfect love of the Father as expressed in Christ casts out all fear. The Prayer of Confession from II Corinthians 6 and 7 this love is expounded in being called the sons and daughters of God and “holiness comes to completion in the fear” of the Lord.

The freedom from fear as expressed in Isaiah 43 becomes both our Assurance of Pardon and our next hymn of praise. The Communion Hymns include Approach My Soul, the Mercy Seat where we come for rest from the war without and the fears within and My Faith has Found a Resting Place in the blood of Christ that ends our fears and doubts.

We conclude the service with In Christ Alone and the power of Christ in us that frees us from guilt in life and fear in death.
