Call to Worship: God Gathers His Church

+ Praise to the Lord, the Almighty

Scripture Reading, and Prayers – Psalm / Salmo 63:1-8

O God, you are my God;
earnestly I seek you;
    my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh faints for you,
    
as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary,
    beholding your power and glory.
Because your steadfast love is better than life,
    
my lips will praise you.
So I will bless you as long as I live;
    in your name I will lift up my hands.
My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food,
    
and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips,
when I remember you upon my bed,
    and meditate on you in the watches of the night;
for you have been my help,
    
and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy.
My soul clings to you;
    your right hand upholds me.

Oh Dios, tú eres mi Dios;
    yo te busco intensamente.
Mi alma tiene sed de ti;
    todo mi ser te anhela,
    
cual tierra seca, extenuada y sedienta.
Te he visto en el santuario
    y he contemplado tu poder y tu gloria.
Tu amor es mejor que la vida;
    
por eso mis labios te alabarán.
Te bendeciré mientras viva,
    y alzando mis manos te invocaré.
Mi alma quedará satisfecha
    
como de un suculento banquete,
y con labios jubilosos
    
te alabará mi boca.
En mi lecho me acuerdo de ti;
    pienso en ti toda la noche.
A la sombra de tus alas cantaré,
    
porque tú eres mi ayuda.
Mi alma se aferra a ti;
    tu mano derecha me sostiene.

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

+ God of My Life, to Thee I Call

Minister: Brothers and sisters, let us humbly confess our sins to God.

Ministro:  Hermano y hermanas, que confesemos nuestros pecados a Dios.

C: Father eternal, giver of light and grace, we have sinned against you and against our neighbor, in thought, word, and deed, through ignorance, through weakness, through our own deliberate fault. We have wounded your love and marred your image in us. We are ashamed and sorry, and we repent of all our sins. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, who died for us, we humbly ask you to forgive us all that is past; and lead us out from darkness to walk as children of light. Amen.

C: Padre eterno, dador de luz y de gracia, hemos pecado contra ti y contra nuestro prójimo, en pensamiento, palabras, y obras, sea por ignorancia, por debilidad, por nuestra culpa deliberada. Hemos herido tu amor y empañado tu imagen en nosotros. Lo sentimos mucho y nos avergonzamos, y nos arrepentimos de todos nuestros pecados. Por el bien de tu Hijo Jesucristo, que murió por nosotros, te pedimos humildement, que nos perdones de todo los pecados del pasado; y que nos saque de la oscuridad para que caminemos como hijos de luz. Amén. 

Silent prayer / Orar en silencio 

Assurance of Pardon / Seguridad de Perdón – 

M: You who turned from your sins and trust the Savior, the blood of Jesus cleanses you from all sins, and the Spirit of Christ consecrates us to God.

M: Quienes se arrepienten de sus pecados y confian en el Salvador, la sangre de Jesucristo los limpia de todo pecado, y el Espiritu de Cristo los santifica para Dios.

Consecration: God Equips His Church

Scripture Reading and Prayer – Proverbs 6:20-35

My son, keep your father’s commandment,
    and forsake not your mother’s teaching.
Bind them on your heart always;
    tie them around your neck.
When you walk, they will lead you;
    when you lie down, they will watch over you;
    and when you awake, they will talk with you.
For the commandment is a lamp and the teaching a light,
    and the reproofs of discipline are the way of life,
to preserve you from the evil woman,
    from the smooth tongue of the adulteress.
Do not desire her beauty in your heart,
    and do not let her capture you with her eyelashes;
for the price of a prostitute is only a loaf of bread,
    but a married woman hunts down a precious life.
Can a man carry fire next to his chest
    and his clothes not be burned?
Or can one walk on hot coals
    and his feet not be scorched?
So is he who goes in to his neighbor’s wife;
    none who touches her will go unpunished.
People do not despise a thief if he steals
    to satisfy his appetite when he is hungry,
but if he is caught, he will pay sevenfold;
    he will give all the goods of his house.
He who commits adultery lacks sense;
    he who does it destroys himself.
He will get wounds and dishonor,
    and his disgrace will not be wiped away.
For jealousy makes a man furious,
    and he will not spare when he takes revenge.
He will accept no compensation;
    he will refuse though you multiply gifts.

Collect. Almighty God, you know that we have no power in ourselves to help ourselves: Keep us both outwardly in our bodies and inwardly in our souls, that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

Sermon – Re:Lent – Lust & Love (Ephesians 5:1-7)

Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints. Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be thanksgiving. For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not become partners with them.

Pastoral Prayer

Confession of Faith: God Saves His Church 

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

+ O the Deep Deep Love of Jesus

The Lord’s Supper is for all baptized believers
in good standing with an evangelical Church.

en sana relacion con una iglesia evangélica.

Meditation / Meditacion – 1 Corinthians 10 (selected)

Words of Institution  / Palabras de Institución – 1 Cor. 11:23-26

For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body, which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, also he took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.”

Yo recibí del Señor lo mismo que les he enseñado a ustedes: Que la noche que fue entregado, el Señor Jesús tomó pan, y que luego de dar gracias, lo partió y dijo: «Tomen y coman. Esto es mi cuerpo, que por ustedes es partido; hagan esto en mi memoria.» Asimismo, después de cenar tomó la copa y dijo: «Esta copa es el nuevo pacto en mi sangre; hagan esto, cada vez que la beban, en mi memoria.»

Prayers of Thanksgiving for the Body and Blood of Christ

Minister: O merciful Lord, we do not presume to come to your Table, trusting in our own righteousness, but in your manifold and great mercies. We are not worthy so much as to gather up the crumbs under your Table. But you are merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness: Grant us therefore, gracious Lord, so to eat the flesh of your beloved Son Jesus Christ, and to drink his blood, that our sinful bodies may be made clean by his Body, and our souls washed through his most precious Blood, and that we may evermore dwell in him, and he in us. Amen. (Prayer of Humble Access / adapted by JMT)

Acción de Gracias por el Cuerpo y Sangre de Cristo

Minister: Oh Señor misericordioso, nosotros no nos atrevemos a venir a tu Mesa, confiando en nuestra rectitud ni justicia, sino en tus muchas y grandes misericordias. No somos dignos ni aún de recoger las migajas debajo de tu Mesa. Mas Tú eres clemente y compasivo, lento para la ira y grande en amor y fidelidad: concédenos, Señor, por tu gracia, que de tal modo comamos la carne de tu amado Hijo Jesucristo, y bebamos su sangre, que nuestros cuerpos pecadores sean limpios por su Cuerpo, y nuestras almas lavadas por su preciosa Sangre; y que siempre vivamos en El, y El en nosotros. Amén

For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

¡Gracias a Dios por su don inefable!
