Call to Worship | God Gathers His Church

Blessed be the Lord God of Israel,
    for he has visited and redeemed his people
and has raised up a horn of salvation for us
    in the house of his servant David,
as he spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets from of old,
that we should be saved from our enemies
    and from the hand of all who hate us;
to show the mercy promised to our fathers
    and to remember his holy covenant,
the oath that he swore to our father Abraham,
to grant us 
deliverance from the hand of our enemies,
that we might serve him without fear,
    in holiness and righteousness before him all our days.
because of the tender mercy of our God,
    whereby the sunrise shall visit us from on high
to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death,
    to guide our feet into the way of peace.”

«Bendito sea el Señor, Dios de Israel,
    porque ha venido a redimir a su pueblo.
Nos envió un poderoso salvador
    en la casa de David su siervo
(como lo prometió en el pasado por medio de sus santos profetas),
para librarnos de nuestros enemigos
    y del poder de todos los que nos aborrecen;
para mostrar misericordia a nuestros padres
    al acordarse de su santo pacto.
    Así lo juró a Abraham nuestro padre:
nos concedió que fuéramos libres del temor,
    al rescatarnos del poder de nuestros enemigos,
para que le sirviéramos con santidad y justicia,
    viviendo en su presencia todos nuestros días.
gracias a la entrañable misericordia de nuestro Dios.
    Así nos visitará desde el cielo el sol naciente,
para dar luz a los que viven en tinieblas,
    en la más terrible oscuridad,
para guiar nuestros pasos por la senda de la paz.

Invocation /Invocación 

Lord’s Prayer / El Padre Nuestro

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.

Your kingdom come, your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For yours is the kingdom
and the power and the glory forever.
Amen

Padre nuestro que estás en el cielo,
santificado sea tu nombre.
Venga tu reino; Hágase tu voluntad,
como en el cielo, así también en la tierra.
El pan nuestro de cada día, dánoslo hoy.
Y perdónanos nuestras deudas,
como también nosotros perdonamos a nuestros deudores.
Y no nos metas en tentación,
mas líbranos del mal;
porque tuyo es el reino,
y el poder, y la gloria, por todos los siglos.
Amen.

CONFESSION OF SINS | God Forgives His People

Minister: Brothers and sisters, if we confess our sins, God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (Be seated)

Ministro:  Hermanos, si confesamos nuestros pecados, Dios, que es fiel y justo, nos los perdonará y nos limpiará de toda maldad. (Sentados)

C: O God, we confess that you cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one.But each one of us is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire.Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death. Let us all be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God. And let us put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save our souls. Let us be doers of the word, and not hearers only, lest we deceive ourselves.

C: Oh Dios, confesamos que tu no puedes ser tentado por el mal, y que tu no tientas a nadie. Pero cada uno de nosotros es tentado cuando es atraído y seducido por su propio deseo. Y el deseo cuando ha concebido da a luz al pecado, y el pecado cuando está plenamente desarrollado produce la muerte. Dejes que cada persona este lista para escuchar, y ser lenta para hablar y lenta para enojarse; pues la ira humana no produce la vida justa que Dios quiere. Dejes que nos despojemos de toda inmundicia y de la maldad que tanto abunda, para que podamos recibir con mansedumbre la palabra sembrada en nosotros, la cual tiene poder para salvarnos la alma; y dejes que seamos hacedores de la palabra, y no solo oidores, no sea que nos engañemos a nosotros mismos. Amén 

Silent prayer / Orar en silencio

Assurance of Pardon / Seguridad de Perdón –

Alzen sus corzones y adoren al Señor.

Consecration | God Equips His Church

Scripture Reading and Prayer – Isaiah 61 (ESV)

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me,
    because the Lord has anointed me
to bring good news to the poor;
    he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim liberty to the captives,
    and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
to proclaim the year of the Lord‘s favor,
    and the day of vengeance of our God;
    to comfort all who mourn;
to grant to those who mourn in Zion—
    to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes,
the oil of gladness instead of mourning,
    the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit;
that they may be called oaks of righteousness,
    the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.
They shall build up the ancient ruins;
    they shall raise up the former devastations;
they shall repair the ruined cities,
    the devastations of many generations.
Strangers shall stand and tend your flocks;
     foreigners shall be your plowmen and vinedressers;
but you shall be called the priests of the Lord;
     they shall speak of you as the ministers of our God;
you shall eat the wealth of the nations,
     and in their glory you shall boast.
Instead of your shame there shall be a double portion;
     instead of dishonor they shall rejoice in their lot;
therefore in their land they shall possess a double portion;
     they shall have everlasting joy.
For I the Lord love justice;
    I hate robbery and wrong;
I will faithfully give them their recompense,
    and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.
Their offspring shall be known among the nations,
    and their descendants in the midst of the peoples;
all who see them shall acknowledge them,
    that they are an offspring the Lord has blessed.
I will greatly rejoice in the Lord;
    my soul shall exult in my God,
for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation;
    he has covered me with the robe of righteousness,
as a bridegroom decks himself like a priest with a beautiful headdress,
    and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
For as the earth brings forth its sprouts,
    and as a garden causes what is sown in it to sprout up,
so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise
    to sprout up before all the nations.

Collect: O Lord, make us have perpetual love and reverence for your holy Name, for you never fail to help and govern those whom you have set upon the sure foundation of your loving-kindness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Sermon: Luke 4 

And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and a report about him went out through all the surrounding country.And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all. And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up. And as was his custom, he went to the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and he stood up to read.And the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written,

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
    because he has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives
    and recovering of sight to the blind,
    to set at liberty those who are oppressed,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

And he rolled up the scroll and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him.And he began to say to them, “Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.” And all spoke well of him and marveled at the gracious words that were coming from his mouth. And they said, “Is not this Joseph’s son?”And he said to them, “Doubtless you will quote to me this proverb, ‘“Physician, heal yourself.” What we have heard you did at Capernaum, do here in your hometown as well.’”And he said, “Truly, I say to you, no prophet is acceptable in his hometown. But in truth, I tell you, there were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heavens were shut up three years and six months, and a great famine came over all the land, and Elijah was sent to none of them but only to Zarephath, in the land of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow. And there were many lepers in Israel in the time of the prophet Elisha, and none of them was cleansed, but only Naaman the Syrian.”When they heard these things, all in the synagogue were filled with wrath. And they rose up and drove him out of the town and brought him to the brow of the hill on which their town was built, so that they could throw him down the cliff.But passing through their midst, he went away.

Confession of Faith 

Congregation Reads – The Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord:
Who was conceived of the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into death;
The third day He arose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven
and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty,
whence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy *catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting.
Amen

Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you. Luke 6:38

Den, y se les dará: se les echará en el regazo una medida llena, apretada, sacudida y desbordante. Porque con la medida que midan a otros, se les medirá a ustedes». Lucas 6:38
