“I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 1:16-20

“Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness… Not to us, Lord, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness!”
*Opening Psalm “All People That on Earth Do Dwell” OLD HUNDREDTH
All people that on earth do dwell, sing to the Lord with cheerful voice.
Serve him with joy, his praises tell, come now before him and rejoice!
Know that the Lord is God indeed; he formed us all without our aid.
We are the flock he surely feeds, the sheep who by his hand were made.
O enter then his gates with joy, within his courts his praise proclaim!
Let thankful songs your tongues employ, O bless and magnify his name!
Because the Lord our God is good, his mercy is forever sure.
His faithfulness at all times stood and shall from age to age endure.
*Opening Prayer and the Lord’s Prayer Mr. Jueon Kim, Intern
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; for Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever, Amen.
*Confession of Faith WSC #100
Christian, what does the preface of the Lord’s prayer teach us?
The preface to the Lord’s Prayer, which is, “Our Father in heaven,” teaches us to draw near to God with all holy reverence and confidence, as children to a father who is able and ready to help us; and that we should pray with and for others.

*Hymn “All Glory Be To Christ” Words and Arrangement by Dustin Kensrue
Should nothing of our efforts stand, no legacy survive;
Unless the Lord does raise the house in vain its builders strive.
To you who boast tomorrow’s gain tell me what is your life?
A mist that vanishes at dawn—All glory be to Christ!
Chorus: All glory be to Christ our king — All glory be to Christ;
His rule and reign we’ll ever sing — All glory be to Christ!
His will be done, His kingdom come on earth as is above;
Who is Himself our daily bread, Praise Him the Lord of love!
Let living water satisfy, the thirsty without price;
We’ll take a cup of kindness yet—All glory be to Christ! (Chorus)
When on the day the great “I Am,” The faithful and the true,
The Lamb who was for sinners slain Is making all things new.
Behold our God shall live with us and be our steadfast light,
And we shall e’re his people be—All glory be to Christ! (Chorus)

Salutation and Call to Worship Psalm 96:1-3 Rev. Hausler
Oh sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth!
Sing to the Lord, bless his name; tell of his salvation from day to day.
Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples!
*Opening Hymn “I Stand Amazed”
I stand amazed in the presence of Jesus the Nazarene,
And wonder how He could love me, a sinner, condemned, unclean.
Refrain: How marvelous! How wonderful! And my song shall ever be:
How marvelous! How wonderful! Is my Savior’s love for me!
He took my sins and my sorrows, He made them His very own;
He bore the burden to Calv’ry, and suffered and died alone. (Refrain)
When with the ransomed in glory His face I at last shall see,
’Twill be my joy through the ages to sing of His love for me. (Refrain 2x)
*Opening Prayer and Confession of Faith Heidelberg Catechism, Q. 60
Christian, how are you righteous before God? Even though my conscience accuses me of having grievously sinned against all God’s commandments and of never having kept any of them, and even though I am still inclined toward all evil, nevertheless, without deserving it at all, out of sheer grace, God grants and credits to me the perfect satisfaction, righteousness, and holiness of Christ, as if I have never sinned nor been a sinner, as if I had been as perfectly obedient as Christ was obedient for me. All I need to do is accept this gift of God with a believing heart.
Hymn “Approach, My Soul, the Mercy Seat” Tune: Martyrdom
Approach, my soul, the mercy seat where Jesus answers prayer;
there humbly fall before his feet, for none can perish there.
Thy promise is my only plea; with this I venture nigh:
thou callest burdened souls to thee, and such, O Lord, am I.
Bowed down beneath a load of sin, by Satan sorely pressed,
by war without and fears within, I come to thee for rest.
Be thou my shield and hiding place, that, sheltered near thy side,
I may my fierce accuser face, and tell him thou hast died
O wondrous love! to bleed and die, to bear the cross and shame,
that guilty sinners, such as I might plead thy gracious name!
