CALL TO WORSHIP

Tune: “When I Can Read My Title Clear”

O, God, my heart is fixed on Thee, to sing and give Thee praise;

I’ll praise Thee, Lord, among Thy saints, as we our anthems raise.

As we our anthems raise; as we our anthems raise.

I’ll praise Thee, Lord, among Thy saints, as we our anthems raise.

I’ll praise Thee for Thy mercy great, that reaches down to me

In Christ my Savior, I am blessed with all salvation free.

With all salvation free; with all salvation free.

In Christ my Savior, I am blessed with all salvation free.

I’ll praise Thee for Thy righteousness as sent from Thee above;

Thy law and justice satisfied in union with Thy love.

In union with Thy love; in union with Thy love;

Thy law and justice satisfied in union with Thy love.

I’ll praise Thee for Thy cleansing Word that sanctifies my soul;

As in my heart Thou art glorified in Christ who makes me whole;

In Christ who makes me whole; in Christ who makes me whole;

TRIUMPH OVER DEATH and the GRAVE

1 Corinthians 15:55-57

"O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ"

. The Christian soldier may, with the greatest propriety, be said to "war a good warfare" (1Timothy 1:19). He is engaged in a good cause; he fights under the eye of the Captain of his salvation. Though he be weak in himself, and though his enemies are many and mighty, he may do that which in other soldiers would be presumption, and has often been the cause of defeat; he may triumph while he is in the heat of battle, and assure himself of victory before the conflict is actually decided; for the Lord, his great Commander, fights for him, goes before him, and treads his enemies under his feet. Such a persuasion, when solidly grounded upon the promises and engagement of a faithful and unchangeable God, is sufficient, it should seem, to make a coward bold. True Christians are not cowards, yet, when they compare themselves with their adversaries, they see much reason for fear and suspicion on their own parts; but when they look to their Savior, they are enlightened, strengthened, and comforted. They consider who He is and what He has done; that the battle is not so much theirs as His; that He is their strength and their shield, and that His honor is concerned in the event of the war. Thus out of weakness they are made strong; and however pressed and opposed, they can say,

"Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us" (Romans 8:37). The whole power of the opposition against them is summed up in the words "sin" and "death;" but these enemies are already weakened and disarmed. It is sin that furnished death with its sting; a sting sharpened and strengthened by the law. But Jesus, by His obedience unto death, has made an end of sin, and has so fulfilled and satisfied the law on their behalf, that death is deprived of its sting, and can no longer hurt them. They may therefore meet it with confidence, and say, "Blessed be God, who giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."

--- John Newton, (author of Amazing Grace)

"Ye sinners, seek His grace,
Whose wrath ye cannot bear;
Fly to the shelter of His cross,
And find salvation there."

Righteousness of Christ

The love of Christ, though thus great and stupendous in itself and delightful to the regenerate; yet to persons dead in trespasses and sins, it is all as a thing of naught, and makes no impression upon the heart; so that, until he is converted, the sinner remains full of rebellion against Christ and the light of the everlasting Gospel. These are they that rebel against the light; {Job 24:13;} and they manifest that rebellion in their hearts by cleaving close either to their lusts or to the rotten rags of their own doings. Nature hath always in it a propensity to act in this manner; and there must be a manifestation of Divine Power to slay this rebellion; especially the legal rebellion which is in the heart of every natural man. It is extremely hard work for such a one to part with his own righteousness for Jesus Christ and his Righteousness; nay, it is harder to part with it than it is to perform it; for, when a poor deluded wretch hath brought himself to live up to such laws, rules and terms, he then imagines that he has acquired something to recommend him to the love and favor of God. Now he looks upon these as his Savior, and esteems them as his gods and his all; {Judges 18:24;} for take these away, and he has nothing more; for he beholds them as the price of his happiness and the hope of his reward. This is the real language of his soul in any of his performances; suppose it to be prayer, with what courage will he say his prayers when he reflects upon his behavior the past day and finds nothing to upbraid himself with, either by omission or commission, {though, if he had eyes, he would see enough in himself every hour to abhor himself for,} then he looks upon God as under an obligation to hear and accept him; but, if he labors under guilt, then his prayer cease, as he is afraid to pray; and, if he doth, he thinks his praying obtains a pardon and his tears make satisfaction. Indeed, they do make satisfaction, but not to God, for they only satisfy his legal conscience and quiet his own mind; and now all is easy and well, and the man thinks himself a very good Christian, and he is so esteemed, it may be, by all his community. Alas! I fear that most of the professors of our day are upon this rotten bottom. If so, how hard then must it be to bring persons off from this sandy foundation, for I am persuaded, that all the laws of moral suasion, and all the Arminianized offers, tenders, proffers and invitations of grace, with all the plainest directions and strongest motives can never do it; because, if it is ever done, it must be by the manifestation of a supernatural Power. The Report of Christ and the Truths of the Gospel will never be believed until Jehovah reveal his arm; {Is.53:1;} for such a soul cleaves to the Law as a broken Covenant and regards not Christ; yea, in his very heart Christ is disapproved, and the sparks of his own kindling are preferred to the Son of God. His hopes of eternal life are built upon his own obedience to the Law, not considering that it cannot give life; {Gal.3:21;} and, as such, is not fit to be trusted to; yet, notwithstanding this, Christ who is the fit, full, and only Savior is disdained and rejected, though he be the only way of life. Thus, in vain do men seek the living amongst the dead; they seek for living comforts and a living glory in a dead and abolished Law; and they love that {their own legal performances} which can neither give life, nor take away death; for there can be no enjoyment of life and glory, nor a freedom from eternal death and shame, but by Jesus Christ the Redeemer, whose worth is infinite; for God will not accept of anything short of a perfect Righteousness, and nothing will please him but a complete Satisfaction.

--- Samuel Stockell {Redeemer’s Glory Unveiled, 1733}
