Call to Worship
Gracious God help us as we come together to meet You and praise Your Name. Help us to prepare Your way in our lives,
and to announce Your coming in love to others. Take, O God, what we give and transform it, to your glory. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
Hymn - My Faith Looks Up to Thee
Invocation and Lord's Prayer
God, guide us with anticipation and hope. Straighten our crooked paths, that we might walk in your ways. Help us to make real in our daily living the words of the prayer Jesus taught us, saying: Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.
Scripture Reading - Matthew 7:1-8
7 “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
6 “Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.
7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
Joys and Concerns
Lord, make us a people of peace. Conform our hearts to love and care for one another in the name of Christ. Cause us to gather in the power of the Holy Spirit to make the rough places in our life smooth. Help us to allow Your righteousness and Your kingdom be foremost in our minds that we could shine forth You light now and forevermore. Amen.
