Opening Prayer

SONG - How Great Thou Art

SONG- Rez Power

Responsive Reading - The Saviour (Abridged)

Lord Jesus,

God of all grace,

You have become my Savior,

   produce in me a faith to live for You,

   to make You all my desire,

     all my hope,

     all my glory.

 

May I enter You as my refuge,

   build on You as my foundation,

   walk in You as my way,

   follow You as my guide,

 

May I conform to You as my example,

   receive Your instructions as my prophet,

   rely on Your intercession as my high priest,

   obey You as my king.

 

Preserve me from this present darkness,

   so that sin does not draw me away,

  nor cause me to fear,

  nor have me doubt your goodness,

  nor lead me into error.

May I be a stranger and a pilgrim on earth,

   declaring plainly that I await the coming of Your city,

   my place in it becoming daily more clear,

   my love for it more perfect,

   my foretastes of it more abundant;

   and whatsoever I do may it be done

     in Your name. Amen.

SONG- More Like Jesus

Scripture Reading

SERMON

SONG - Grace Alone

Responsive Reading- Offering 2 Cor 8

Hear Paul’s words to the Corinthians:

9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich. 10 And in this matter I give my judgment: [giving] benefits you, who a year ago started not only to do this work but also to desire to do it. 15 As it is written, “Whoever gathered much had nothing left over, and whoever gathered little had no lack.”

Let’s pray:

Father of creation, we recognize that possessions only bring false security that can be shattered at any moment, and that none of us can predict tomorrow.  We bring these gifts that Your kingdom would continue, and by Your power we stand against the worry the world says we ought to have.  Instead, we dedicate our lives to You and give You praise for Christ, who became poor that we might have every blessing in the heavenly places.  In His name we pray, Amen.
