The love of God is greater far, than tongue or pen can ever tell
It goes beyond the highest star, and reaches to the lowest hell
The guilty pair, bowed down with care, God gave His Son to win
His erring child He reconciled, and pardoned from his sin Could

we with ink the ocean fill, and were the skies of parchment made

Were every stalk on earth a quill, and every man a scribe by trade
To write the love of God above, would drain the ocean dry Nor

could the scroll contain the whole, though stretched from sky to sky
—Frederick Lehman

Prayer of confession:

SILENT CONFESSION ASSURANCE OF PARDON

OLD TESTMENT READING : Psalms 128:1-6

1 Happy is everyone who fears the Lord, who walks in his ways. 2 You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be happy, and it shall go well with you. 3 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table. 4 Thus shall the man be blessed who fears the Lord. 5 The Lord bless you from Zion. May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life. 6 May you see your children’s children. Peace be upon Israel!

The Word of the Lord Thanks be to God

NEW TESTAMENT READING: Matthew 8:1-4

When Jesus[a] had come down from the mountain, great crowds followed him; 2 and there was a leper[b] who came to him and knelt before him, saying, “Lord, if you choose, you can make me clean.” 3 He stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, “I do choose. Be made clean!” Immediately his leprosy[c] was cleansed. 4 Then Jesus said to him, “See that you say nothing to anyone; but go, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.”

The Gospel of the Lord Praise to you Lord Christ

SERMON: Dr. Randy Working “Good and Strong.”

CALL FOR OFFERING ** DOXOLOGY

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow; Praise Him, all creatures here below; Praise Him above, ye heavenly host; Praise father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH: The Heidelberg Catechism, questions 27 & 28

Pastor: What do you understand by the providence of God?
All: Providence is the almighty and ever present power of God by which he upholds, as with his hand, heaven and earth and all creatures, and so rules them that leaf and blade, rain and drought, fruitful and lean years, food and drink, health and sickness, prosperity and poverty—all things, in fact, come to us not by chance but from his fatherly hand.
Pastor: How does the knowledge of God’s creation and providence help us?
All: We can be patient when things go against us, thankful when things go well, and for the future we can have good confidence in our faithful God and Father that nothing will separate us from his love. All creatures are so completely in his hand that without his will they can neither move nor be moved.

Hymn #383 My Faith Looks Up to Thee

1 My faith looks up to Thee, Thou Lamb of Calvary, Savior divine:
Now hear me while I pray, Take all my guilt away,
O let me from this day Be wholly Thine!

2 May Thy rich grace impart Strength to my fainting heart, My zeal inspire;

As Thou hast died for me, O may my love to Thee Pure

warm, and changeless be, A living fire!

3 While life’s dark maze I tread, And griefs around me spread,Be Thou my guide;

Bid d arkness turn to day, Wipe sorrow’s tears away,

Nor let me ever stray From Thee aside.

4 When ends life’s transient dream, When death’s cold sullen stream Shall o'er me roll.

Blest Savior, then, in love, Fear and distrust remove; O bear me safe above,
A ransomed soul!

PRAYERS FOR GOD’S PEOPLE AND LORD’S PRAYER:

HOLY COMMUNION

PRAYER AFTER COMMUNION

We thank you, loving God, for this supper shared in the Spirit with your Son Jesus, who makes us new and strong, and brings us life eternal. We praise you for giving all good gifts in him, and pledge ourselves to serve you, even as you have served us in Jesus Christ the Lord, Amen.

*CLOSING HYMN #403 What a Friend We Have in Jesus

What a friend we have in Jesus All our sins and griefs to bear
And what a privilege to carry Everything to God in prayer

Oh, what peace we often forfeit Oh, what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry Everything to God in prayer

Have we trials and temptations? Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged Take it to the Lord in prayer

Can we find a friend so faithful Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness Take it to the Lord in prayer

BENEDICTION Pastor: The Lord be with you All: And also with you.
