Welcome/Call to Worship: Hosea 6:1
•MIGHTY TO SAVE/ALWAYS (tag Chorus)
•TURN YOUR EYES UPON JESUS
In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength, but you would have none of it. Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!
[Isaiah 30:15, 18]
Merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed,
by what we have done, and by what we have left undone.
We have not loved you with our whole heart and mind and strength.
We have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. In your mercy forgive what we have been, help us amend what we are, and direct what we shall be, so that we may delight in your will and walk in your ways, to the glory of your holy name. Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Hear the good news! "I will cleanse them from all the guilt of their sin against me,
and I will forgive all the guilt of their sin and rebellion against me." [Jeremiah 33:8]
