PRELUDE

CALL TO WORSHIP

L: Are you ready for this Lenten journey?

P: We truly are. We have decided to follow Jesus.

Soloist: I Have Decided to Follow Jesus, verse 1

L: This is not going to be an easy journey. You may want to turn around and go home to safety and security.

P: No. We’re ready. The world is behind us; we are focused on the cross.

Soloist: I Have Decided to Follow Jesus, verse 2

L: Many will begin the journey; but not all will continue. Are you ready?

P: We are ready. We place our faith and trust in Jesus.

HYMN ~ The Summons

Will you come and follow me if I but call your name?
Will you go where you don't know and never be the same?
Will you let my love be shown,
will you let my name be known,
will you let my life be grown in you and you in me?

Will you leave yourself behind if I but call your name?
Will you care for cruel and kind and never be the same?
Will you risk the hostile stare--should your life attract or scare?
Will you let me answer prayer in you and you in me?

Will you love the "you" you hide if I but call your name?
Will you quell the fear inside and never be the same?
Will you use the faith you've found to reshape the world around,
through my sight and touch and sound in you and you in me?

SERMON ~ Who Do You Say that I Am?

HYMN ~ Ask Ye What Great Thing I Know

Ask ye what great thing I know,
that delights and stirs me so?
What the high reward I win?
Whose the name I glory in?  Jesus Christ, the crucified.

Who defeats my fiercest foes?
Who consoles my saddest woes?
Who revives my fainting heart,
healing all its hidden smart? Jesus Christ, the crucified.

Who is life in life to me?
Who the death of death will be?
Who will place me on his right,
with the countless hosts of light? Jesus Christ, the crucified.

This is that great thing I know;
this delights and stirs me so:
faith in him who died to save,
him who triumphed o'er the grave:
Jesus Christ, the crucified.
