Prayer: Lord of all, You have called us to be one in faith and baptism. May we know You with the one eternal hope of which You have given us, as we live out this day to Your praise and glory. Amen.
Read: Ephesians 4: 1-8
Why is worship important for us as Christians? Do we need to attend Worship each week or does God ask just to attend two Sundays a month?
Frequently attending worship has been called a disciple. And it is. It does take discipline or effort to attending something every week. But think of worship as a party.... the ultimate celebration of God. Who wants to miss out on a party, especially the ultimate celebration of worshipping God?
Prayer: Everlasting God, in whom we live and move and have our being. You have made us for Yourself, so that our hearts are restless until they rest in You. Give us purity of heart and strength of purpose, that no selfish passion may hinder us from knowing Your will, no weakness keep us from doing it; that in Your light we may see light clearly, and in Your service find perfect freedom; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (PCC-USA “The Service for the Lord’s Day”.
