Call To Worship: Let Us Go to the House of the Lord

LEADER:  I was glad when they said to me, let us go to the house of the Lord!
PEOPLE:   Praise the Lord!  For it is good to sing praises to our God!

LEADER:  Great is our Lord, and abundant in power; His understanding is beyond measure.
PEOPLE:  Blessed is he whose hope is in the Lord, who made heaven and earth, the sea and all that is in them.

LEADER:  The Lord will reign forever, your God, O Zion, to all generations.
ALL:  Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!  Praise the Lord!

Prayer: George Matheson (1842-1906)

Dear Lord, I thank Thee that Thy love constraineth me. I thank Thee that, in the great labyrinth of life, Thou waitest not for my consent to lead me. I thank Thee that Thou leadest me by a way which I know not, by a way which is above the level of my own poor understanding. I thank Thee that Thou art not repelled by my bitterness, that Thou art not turned aside by the heat of my spirit. There is no force in this universe so glorious as the force of Thy love; it compels me to come in. Amen.

Creed: What is Grace

LEADER:  What is grace?
PEOPLE:  Grace is God’s undeserved gift of His love, mercy and help, which He freely offers to us who, because of our sin, deserve only condemnation.

LEADER:  For what purpose does God give you grace?
PEOPLE:  God gives me grace in Christ for the forgiveness of my sins, redemption from sin’s power, healing of sin’s effects and growth in holiness to my final transformation into the likeness of Christ.

LEADER:  Can you earn God’s grace?
PEOPLE:  No. God gives His grace freely and enables me to receive it. Everything I do for God should be in response to His love and grace made known in Christ, for “while we were still sinners, Christ died for us,” and “we love because He first loved us.”
