1 “Then those who feared the LORD spoke with one another. The LORD paid attention and heard them, and a book of remembrance was written before him of those who feared the LORD and esteemed his name. ‘They shall be mine, says the LORD of hosts, in the day when I make up my treasured possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his son who serves him.’” Malachi 3:16-17

2 What child is this, who, laid to rest On Mary’s lap is sleeping? Whom angels greet with anthems sweet, While shepherds watch are keeping? What Child Is This? What Child Is This? William Chatterton Dix

3 This, this is Christ the King, Whom shepherds guard and angels sing. Haste, haste to bring Him laud, The babe, the Son of Mary.

4 Why lies He in such mean estate, Where ox and ass are feeding? Good Christian, fear; for sinners here The silent Word is pleading.

5 This, this is Christ the King, Whom shepherds guard and angels sing. Haste, haste to bring Him laud, The babe, the Son of Mary.

6 So bring Him incense, gold, and myrrh; Come peasant king to own Him. The King of Kings salvation brings; Let loving hearts enthrone Him.

7 This, this is Christ the King, Whom shepherds guard and angels sing. Haste, haste to bring Him laud, The babe, the Son of Mary. (repeat) “What Child Is This?” by William Chatterton Dix Public Domain CCLI License #503207

29 Almighty God, we believe that you are coming again in power to judge the earth. But we confess that we have not lived as those who daily expect your kingdom. We have spoken harsh words, thought impure thoughts, and lived casual lives. We have not loved you with our whole hearts or our neighbors as ourselves. Confession of Sin

30 Have mercy on us and forgive us for all our offenses. In your tender kindness, embrace us with your fatherly love, and fill our hearts with the joyful expectation of seeing you soon, face to face. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

31 Silent time for personal confession

32 In Christ alone my hope is found He is my light, my strength, my song This cornerstone, this solid ground Firm through the fiercest drought and storm In Christ Alone

33 What heights of love, what depths of peace, When fears are stilled and strivings cease, My Comforter, my all in all Here in the love of Christ I stand.

34 In Christ alone who took on flesh, Fullness of God in helpless Babe! This gift of love and righteousness, Scorned by the ones He came to save.

35 ‘Til on that cross, as Jesus died, The wrath of God was satisfied. For ev’ry sin on Him was laid; Here in the death of Christ I live.

36 There in the ground His body lay, Light of the world by darkness slain; Then, bursting forth in glorious day, Up from the grave He rose again!

37 And as He stands in victory, Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me; For I am His and He is mine, Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

38 No guilt in life, no fear in death, This is the pow’r of Christ in me; From life’s first cry to final breath, Jesus commands my destiny.

39 No pow’r of hell, no scheme of man, Can ever pluck me from His hand; ‘Til He returns or calls me home, Here in the pow’r of Christ I’ll stand! (repeat) “In Christ Alone” by Keith Getty and Stuart Townsend © 2001 Thankyou Music (Admin. by EMI Christian Music Publishing) CCLI License #503207

45 Scripture Reading Luke 1: Now while he was serving as priest before God when his division was on duty, 9 according to the custom of the priesthood, he was chosen by lot to enter the temple of the Lord and burn incense. 10 And the whole multitude of the people were praying outside at the hour of incense. 11 And there appeared to him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense.

46 Scripture Reading Luke 1: And Zechariah was troubled when he saw him, and fear fell upon him. 13 But the angel said to him, “Do not be afraid, Zechariah, for your prayer has been heard, and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall call his name John. 14 And you will have joy and gladness, and many will rejoice at his birth, 15 for he will be great before the Lord.

48 The Promised One

49 Malachi 4 1 ¶ “For behold, the day is coming, burning like an oven, when all the arrogant and all evildoers will be stubble. The day that is coming shall set them ablaze, says the LORD of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch. 2 But for you who fear my name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. You shall go out leaping like calves from the stall. 3 And you shall tread down the wicked, for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet, on the day when I act, says the LORD of hosts.

50 4 ¶ “Remember the law of my servant Moses, the statutes and rules that I commanded him at Horeb for all Israel. 5 “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes. 6 And he will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the land with a decree of utter destruction.”
