Gathering Around the Word
CALL TO WORSHIP: from Psalm 37
Do not be envious of those who do wrong and are evil;
Like the grass and green plants, they will soon wither.
Delight yourself in the Lord
and He will give you the desires of your heart
Trust in the Lord and do good;
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Commit your way to the Lord and trust in Him.
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him.
Refrain from anger and turn from wrath;
Do not fret—it only leads to evil.
Those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.
The Lord laughs at the wicked and loves the just.
*HYMN “Lord, I want to Be a Christian” # 729
*PRAYER OF CONFESSION:
Lord, I want to be a Christian inna my heart, inna my heart.
Yet too often I love myself too much. I care about what
affects me more than I care for my neighbor, my brother,
my sister. I am interested in what value I receive from my
efforts rather than what value my efforts give.
Forgive my sin. Forgive my selfishness. Forgive my
lack of effort in telling others about Your love, Your hope,
Your forgiveness. Allow me to “Taste and See that the Lord
is good” again. O Lord God, I am still learning to love You!
