preached by
Pastor Jon Needham

Sermon text

Titus 2:11–14

[11] For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, [12] training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, [13] waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, [14] who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works. (ESV)

Call to Worship

Psalm 80:1–7

[1] Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel,
you who lead Joseph like a flock.
You who are enthroned upon the cherubim, shine forth.
[2] Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh,
stir up your might
and come to save us!

[3] Restore us, O God;
let your face shine, that we may be saved!

[4] O LORD God of hosts,
how long will you be angry with your people’s prayers?
[5] You have fed them with the bread of tears
and given them tears to drink in full measure.
[6] You make us an object of contention for our neighbors,
and our enemies laugh among themselves.

[7] Restore us, O God of hosts;
let your face shine, that we may be saved! (ESV)

Prayer of Confession

Almighty God, I am full of infirmities, wants, sin; You are full of grace. I confess my sin, my frequent sin, my wilful sin; I am undeserving, but I look to Your tender mercy. I have no merit, let the merit of Jesus stand for me. Save me from the love of the world and the pride of life, from everything that is natural to fallen man, and let Christ’s nature be seen in me day by day. Amen.
