Prelude: Living Hope

Sung by the DCE Virtual Choir (including our own DCE Ryan!)

Welcome and Invocation

Opening Hymn: Oh, For a Thousand Tongues to Sing

1 Oh, for a thousand tongues to sing
My great Redeemer’s praise,
The glories of my God and King,     
The triumphs of His grace!

2 My gracious Master and my God,     
Assist me to proclaim,
To spread through all the earth abroad,
The honors of Thy name.

3 Jesus! The name that charms our fears,
That bids our sorrows cease;
’Tis music in the sinner’s ears,    
 ’Tis life and health and peace.

4 He breaks the pow’r of canceled sin;
He sets the pris’ner free.
His blood can make the foulest clean;
His blood avails for me.

5 Look unto Him, ye nations; own     
Your God, ye fallen race.
Look and be saved through faith alone,
Be justified by grace.

6 See all your sins on Jesus laid;     
The Lamb of God was slain.
His soul was once an off’ring made     
For ev’ry soul of man.

7 To God all glory, praise, and love     
Be now and ever giv’n
By saints below and saints above,     
The Church in earth and heav’n.

Readings

Holy Gospel: Matthew 9:35-10:8
Sermon Text: Romans 5:6-15

Gospel Reading

35Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction. 36When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; 38therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”

1And he called to him his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every affliction. 2The names of the twelve apostles are these: first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; 3Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; 4Simon the Cananaean, and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.

5These twelve Jesus sent out, instructing them, “Go nowhere among the Gentiles and enter no town of the Samaritans, 6but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7And proclaim as you go, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ 8Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons. You received without paying; give without pay.”

L: This is the Gospel of the Lord. Praise to You, Oh Christ!

Sermon Text

6For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. 7For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— 8but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. 10For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. 11More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.

12Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned— 13for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law. 14Yet death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sinning was not like the transgression of Adam, who was a type of the one who was to come.

15But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man’s trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many.

L: This is the Word of the Lord. Thanks be to God!

Because You died and rose again

Prayer of the Church and Lord’s Prayer

Song: Jesus Messiah

He became sin who knew no sin
That we might become His righteousness
He humbled Himself and carried the cross
Love so amazing love so amazing

[Chorus]
Jesus Messiah Name above all names
Blessed Redeemer Emmanuel
The Rescue for sinners
The Ransom from heaven
Jesus Messiah Lord of all

His body the bread His blood the wine
Broken and poured out all for love
The whole earth trembled and the veil was torn
Love so amazing love so amazing  

[Chorus]

All our hope is in You
All our hope is in You
All the glory to You God
The Light of the world

[Chorus]

Jesus Messiah
Lord of all
The Lord of all

    Thanks to all for getting us ready for the week ahead. “Who Brings Home the Forgiveness” touched us deeply. We hope to see more virtual choir participation. Technology is surely a blessing! Peace to all and keep praying for yourselves and each other.
