Call to Worship: “Colossians 3:16”

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

Hymn of Acclamation: “Jesus!”
Eichelberger and Bolen, 2013

The King of all Creation set aside His crown
A servant to the Father’s love
Descended from his throne above

Author of Salvation, Giver of new life
Crucified to pay for sin
Our righteousness is in the name of

Jesus! Every heart and tongue confess
Your name above all names
All things of this earth belong to you
Forever you will reign

God of Resurrection, Conqueror of death
Ruler over everything
The Lord of lords and King of kings is

Jesus! Every heart and tongue confess
Your name above all names
All things of this earth belong to you
Forever you will reign

Highly exalted is the name, of Jesus Christ
Heaven and earth declare all praise, to Jesus Christ
Highly exalted is the name, of Jesus Christ
Heaven and earth declare all praise to

Jesus! Every heart and tongue confess
Your name above all names
All things of this earth belong to you
Forever you will reign

Jesus! Every heart and tongue confess
Your name above all names
All things of this earth belong to you
Forever you will reign

Highly exalted is the name, of Jesus Christ
Heaven and earth declare all praise, to Jesus Christ

We Mourn the Reality of Sin

Hymn of Confession: “Your Will Be Done”              
CityAlight, 2020

Your will be done, my God and Father
As in heaven, so on earth
My heart is drawn to self-exalting
Help me seek Your kingdom first
As Jesus walked, so I shall walk
Held by Your same unchanging love
Be still my soul, O lift your voice and pray:
‘Father, not my will but Yours be done.’

How in that Garden he persisted
I may never fully know
The fearful weight of true obedience
It was held by him alone
What wondrous faith, to bear that cross!
To bear my sin, what wondrous love!
My hope was sure, when there my Saviour prayed:
‘Father, not my will but Yours be done.’

When I am lost, when I am broken
In the night of fear and doubt
Still I will trust in my good Father
Yes, to one great King I bow!
As Jesus rose, so I shall rise
In ransomed glory at the throne
My heart restored
With all your saints I sing:
‘Father, not my will but Yours be done!’

As we go forth, our God and Father
Lead us daily in the fight
That all the world might see Your glory
And Your Name be lifted high
And in this Name we overcome
For You shall see us safely home
Now as your church, we lift our voice and pray:
‘Father, not my will but Yours be done!’

We Celebrate Christ as Our Redeemer

Assurance of Pardon:  “Philippians 2:8”                                                                          

And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

Hymn of Redemption: “Jesus Paid it All”
Hall, 1865 

I hear the Savior say: “Thy strength indeed is small”
Child of weakness, watch and pray, find in me thine all in all.

Chorus
Jesus paid it all! All to Him I owe.
Sin had left a crimson stain; 
He washed it white as snow.

Lord now indeed I find; thy power and thine alone
Can change the leper’s spots, and melt the heart of stone.

Repeat Chorus

And when before the throne, I stand in Him complete
Jesus died my soul to save my lips shall still repeat.

Repeat Chorus

O praise the One who paid my debt,
And raised this life up from the dead! (REPEAT) 

Repeat Chorus

Reading: “Matthew 14:1-12” 

At that time Herod the tetrarch heard about the fame of Jesus,and he said to his servants, “This is John the Baptist. He has been raised from the dead; that is why these miraculous powers are at work in him.” For Herod had seized John and bound him and put him in prison for the sake of Herodias, his brother Philip’s wife, because John had been saying to him, “It is not lawful for you to have her.” And though he wanted to put him to death, he feared the people, because they held him to be a prophet. But when Herod’s birthday came, the daughter of Herodias danced before the company and pleased Herod, so that he promised with an oath to give her whatever she might ask. Prompted by her mother, she said, “Give me the head of John the Baptist here on a platter.” And the king was sorry, but because of his oaths and his guests he commanded it to be given. 10 He sent and had John beheaded in the prison, 11 and his head was brought on a platter and given to the girl, and she brought it to her mother. 12 And his disciples came and took the body and buried it, and they went and told Jesus.

Prayer for the Proclamation of God’s Word 

Sermon: “The Kingdom is Costly”
Jarred Jung – Matthew 14:1-12

Main Point: Following the King and proclaiming His kingdom is a costly endeavor.

We Respond to the Gospel

Hymn of Response: “Before the Throne of God Above”
Bancroft, 1863

Before the throne of God above 
I have a strong and perfect plea 
A great High Priest whose name is love 
Who ever lives and pleads for me 
My name is graven on His hands 
My name is written on His heart 
I know that while in heav’n He stands 
No tongue can bid me thence depart  

When Satan tempts me to despair 
And tells me of the guilt within 
Upward I look and see Him there 
Who made an end of all my sin 
Because the sinless Savior died 
My sinful soul is counted free 
For God the Just is satisfied 
To look on Him and pardon me 

Behold Him there, the risen Lamb 
My perfect, spotless Righteousness 
The great unchangeable I AM 
The King of glory and of grace 
One with Himself, I cannot die 
My soul is purchased by His blood 
My life is hid with Christ on high 
With Christ my Savior and my God 

Commissioning of the Church

Hymn of New Creation: “The Church’s One Foundation”
Stone, 1866 

The church’s one foundation 
Is Jesus Christ her Lord, 
She is His new creation 
By water and the Word. 
From heaven He came and sought her 
To be His holy bride; 
With His own blood He bought her, 
And for her life He died.

Elect from every nation, 
Yet one over all the earth; 
Her charter of salvation, 
One Lord, one faith, one birth; 
One holy Name she blesses, 
Partakes one holy food, 
And to one hope she presses, 
With every grace endued. 

The church shall never perish, 
Her dear Lord to defend 
To guide, sustain and cherish, 
Is with her to the end 
Though there be those that hate her, 
And false sons in her pale 
Against a foe or traitor, 
She ever shall prevail 

Mid toil and tribulation, 
And tumult of her war, 
She waits the consummation 
Of peace forevermore; 
‘Til, with the vision glorious, 
Her longing eyes are blessed, 
And the great church victorious 
Shall be the church at rest.

Yet she on earth hath union 
With God the Three in One, 
And mystic sweet communion 
With those whose rest is won. 
O happy ones and holy! 
Lord, give us grace that we 
Like them, the meek and lowly, 
On high may dwell with Thee.

Benediction and Sending
