2 Corinthians 5:16–21
 From now on, therefore, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we once regarded Christ according to the flesh, we regard him thus no longer.  Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.  All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation;  that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.  Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.  For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. (ESV)
Call to Worship
I Will Walk with Integrity
A Psalm of David.
 I will sing of steadfast love and justice;
to you, O LORD, I will make music.
 I will ponder the way that is blameless.
Oh when will you come to me?
I will walk with integrity of heart
within my house;
 I will not set before my eyes
anything that is worthless.
I hate the work of those who fall away;
it shall not cling to me.
 A perverse heart shall be far from me;
I will know nothing of evil. (ESV)
Prayer of Confession
Lord Jesus, I have sinned times without number, and been guilty of pride and unbelief, and of neglect to seek you in my daily life. My sins and shortcomings present me with a list of accusations, but I thank you that they will not stand against me, for all have been laid on Christ. Deliver me from every evil habit, every interest of former sins, everything that dims the brightness of your grace in me, everything that prevents me taking delight in you. Amen.
