    Psalm 1

    Psalm 1

    Confession:
    Eternal God, our judge and redeemer,
    we confess that we have tried to hide from you,
    for we have done wrong.
    We have lived for ourselves
    and apart from you.
    We have turned from our neighbors
    and refused to bear the burdens of others.
    We have ignored the pain of the world
    and passed by the hungry, the poor, and the oppressed.
    We have allowed good intentions and high sounding words to be substitutes for loving others in costly ways.
    In your great mercy, forgive our sins
    and free us from selfishness,
    that we may choose your will
    and love as you would love;
    through Jesus Christ our Savior.

    Assurance of Pardoning Grace
    If you, O Lord, kept a record of sins, O Lord, who could stand? But with you
    there is forgiveness; therefore you are feared. O Israel, put your hope in the Lord,
    for with the Lord is unfailing love and with him is full redemption. He himself will
    redeem Israel from all their sins. Ps. 130.4-5, 7-8

    Psalm 1: Blessed is the man[a]
    who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
    nor stands in the way of sinners,
    nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
    2 but his delight is in the law[b] of the Lord,
    and on his law he meditates day and night.
    3 He is like a tree
    planted by streams of water
    that yields its fruit in its season,
    and its leaf does not wither.
    In all that he does, he prospers.
    4 The wicked are not so,
    but are like chaff that the wind drives away.
    5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
    nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;
    6 for the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
    but the way of the wicked will perish.

    Unlikely Converts

    Unlikely Converts

    Confession: Jesus our Savior, help us. We are slow to learn and prone to forget; we are pained by our graceless hearts, our prayerless days, our wasted hours, our unspent opportunities. We repent of holding onto your precious Gospel and not giving it away to others. We are blind while the light shines around us: take the scales from our eyes, grind to dust our hearts of unbelief. Make it our highest joy, Jesus, to study You, meditate on You, gaze on You, sit like Mary at Your feet, appeal like Peter to Your love, consider like Paul all things but rubbish for the sake of knowing You, and to count the cost of making and multiplying disciples. Amen.

    Assurance of Pardon: As far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us.
    Psalm 103:12

    Matthew 2:1-12 - Unlikely Converts: The story of the Three Magi

    “Many times those who are nearest to the means of grace are furthest from the ends of grace”. -Matthew Henry

    “He came to his own, but His own received Him not, but to all who did receive him. He gave the power to become children of God.” John 1:11-12.

    Repentance | Psalm 51

    Repentance | Psalm 51

    Confession: Almighty and gracious Father in Heaven, You are a Holy God, and yet my life abounds with apologies not made, forgiveness not offered, appetites not restrained, parents not honored, spouses not cherished, children not trained, hungry not fed, envy unchecked, tongues unbridled, eyes unguarded, time wasted, talents wasted, treasure wasted. Lord Jesus, deliver me from these chains, from the rebellion of my old ways that still hang on, from the sugar of sin as well as its poison, so that I may come to you, cast myself on you, trust in you, and be delivered by you.

    Assurance of Pardon: “Yet this I call to mind and therefore have hope: Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed for his compassions never fail; they are new every morning. Great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:21-22

    Psalm 51: The Message
    - Generous in love—God, give grace!
    Huge in mercy—blot out my bad record.
    Scrub away my guilt,
    soak out my sins in your laundry.
    I know how bad I’ve been;
    my sins are staring me down.
    - You’re the One I’ve violated, and you’ve seen
    it all, seen the full extent of my evil.
    You have all the facts before you;
    whatever you decide about me is fair.
    I’ve been out of step with you for a long time,
    in the wrong since before I was born.
    What you’re after is truth from the inside out.
    Enter me, then; conceive a new, true life.
    - The sacrifices acceptable to God are a broken spirit;
    a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.

    1. What is Gospel Brokenness?
    2. What does God promise people who are broken over their sins?

    For this is what the high and exalted One says—
    he who lives forever, whose name is holy:
    “I live in a high and holy place,
    but also with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit,
    to revive the spirit of the lowly
    and to revive the heart of the contrite.
    Isaiah 57:15
