PROVIDENCE CHURCH
September 20, 2020

Welcome

Passing of the Peace: Though we are separated by distance our hearts are one in Christ. The peace of Christ be with you! And also with you!

Call to worship:
Pastor: “Come, let us return to the Lord; for though he has torn us, yet he may heal us;
he has struck us down, and he will bind us up.
People: After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will raise us up,
that we may live before him.
ALL: Let us know; let us press on to know the Lord; his going out is sure as the dawn;
he will come to us as the showers, as the spring rains that water the earth.”

Songs of Praise:

Come, Let Us Worship and Bow Down (Fernando Ortega)
Come, let us worship and bow down, and kneel before the Lord, our Maker. (4X)

He is our God, He is our God, and we are the people of his pasture.
He is our God, He is our God, and we are the sheep of his hand.

Come, let us worship and bow down, and kneel before the Lord, our Maker.
Come, let us worship and bow down, and kneel before the Lord, our Maker.
He is our God, He is our God, and we are the people of his pasture.
He is our God, He is our God, and we are the sheep of his hand.

Worship the Lord in holiness; let the whole earth stand in awe.
He will come to judge the world in righteousness and truth.

He is our God, He is our God, and we are the people of his pasture.
He is our God, He is our God, and we are the sheep of his hand. (2X)

Come, let us worship and bow down, and kneel before the Lord, our Maker.

Bless the Lord (10,000 Reasons)
Chorus:
Bless the Lord, O my soul, O my soul, worship his holy name.
Sing like never before, O my soul, I’ll worship you holy name.

The sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning,
It’s time to sing your praise again.
Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me,
Let me be singing when the evening comes. (Chorus)

You’re rich in love and you’re slow to anger;
Your name is great and your heart is kind.
For all your goodness I will keep on singing:
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find. (Chorus)

And on that day, when my strength is failing,
The end draws near and my time has come,
Still my soul will sing your praise unending,
Ten thousand years and then forevermore. (Chorus X2)

Is He Worthy (Andrew Peterson)
Do you feel the world is broken? We do.
Do you feel the shadows deepen? We do.
But do you know that all the dark won’t stop the light from getting through? We do.
Do you wish that you could see it all made new? We do.

Is all Creation groaning? It is.
Is a new Creation coming? It is.
Is the glory of the Lord to be the light within our midst? It is.
Is it good that we remind ourselves of this? It is.

Is anyone worthy? Is anyone whole?
Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll?
The Lion of Judah, who conquered the grave,
He is David’s root and the Lamb who died to ransom the slave.
Is he worthy, is he worthy, of all blessing and honor and glory?
Is he worthy of this? He is.

Does the Father truly love us? He does.
Does the Spirit move among us? He does.
And does Jesus our Messiah hold forever those he loves? He does.
Does our God intend to dwell again with us? He does.

Is anyone worthy? Is anyone whole?
Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll?
The Lion of Judah, who conquered the grave,
He is David’s root and the Lamb who died to ransom the slave.
From every people and tribe, every nation and tongue,
He has made us a kingdom and priesthood to God to reign with his Son.
Is he worthy? Is he worthy of all blessing and honor and glory?
Is he worthy? Is he worthy? Is he worthy of this?
He is!
Is he worthy, is he worthy? He is! He is!

Confession/Assurance

Respond in Praise:

All for Jesus (Mary James, 1889; tune John Stainer, 1887)
All for Jesus! All for Jesus! All my being’s ransomed powers,
All my thoughts and words and doings, all my days and all my hours.

Let my hands perform his bidding, let my feet run in his ways;
Let my eyes see Jesus only, let my lips speak forth his praise.

Since my eyes were fixed on Jesus, I’ve lost sight of all beside;
So enchained my spirit’s vision, looking at the Crucified.

O what wonder! How amazing! Jesus, glorious King of kings,
Deigns to call me his beloved, lets me rest beneath his wings.

Scripture Reading: Jonah 4:1-4
This is the Word of the Lord.   Thanks be to God!

Sermon: “Mad About What?”

Hymn of Dedication:
He Leadeth Me
He leadeth me, O blessed thought! O words with heav’nly comfort fraught!
Whate’er I do, where’er I be, still ‘tis God’s hand that leadeth me.

Chorus:
He leadeth me, he leadeth me,
By his own hand he leadeth me:
His faithful foll’wer I would be,
For by his hand he leadeth me.

Lord, I would clasp thy hand in mine, nor ever murmur nor repine;
Content, whatever lot I see, since ‘tis my God that leadeth me. (Chorus)

And when my task on earth is done, when, by thy grace, the vict’ry’s won,
E’en death’s cold wave I will not flee, since God through Jordan leadeth me. (Chorus)

Lord’s Prayer:
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.
Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil:
for thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory. Amen

Hymn of Thanksgiving:

A Mighty Fortress Is Our God (Martin Luther, 1529)
A mighty fortress is our God, a bulwark never failing.
Our helper, he, amid the flood of mortal ills prevailing.
For still our ancient foe doth seek to work us woe;
His craft and pow’r are great, and armed with cruel hate.
On earth is not his equal.

Did we in our own strength confide, our striving would be losing;
Were not the right man on our side, the Man of God’s own choosing.
Dost ask who that may be? Christ Jesus, it is he,
Lord Sabaoth his name, from age to age the same,
And he must win the battle.

And though this world with devils filled
Should threaten to undo us,
We will not fear, for God hath willed his truth to triumph through us.
The prince of darkness, grim, we tremble not for him.
His rage we can endure, for lo! his doom is sure.
One little word shall fell him.

That Word, above all earthy pow’rs, no thanks to them, abideth;
The Spirit and the gifts are ours, through him who with us sideth.
Let goods and kindred go, this mortal life also;
The body they may kill: God’s truth abideth still:
His kingdom is forever.
