The grace of God, which brings salvation, also brings transformation.
We are not only given a new status before God, we also continue to be changed into a people striving to do the works of God.
Blessed Be Your Name and Join All The Glorious Names prepare us for worship by focussing on who we are in the Lord Jesus. A further expression of our praise to Him for His great work of salvation will follow as we commence the service singing The Splendour Of The King (How Great Is Our God).
Our prayer will recognise how deeply we need not only the redemption of salvation but the transformation of our natures to truly be the people of God. In and of ourselves we would return to seeking our own ways, but the Gospel changes us, more and more to be like Jesus. Saviour, While My Heart Is Tender, The Apostles’ Creed and Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow will express our testimony of faith.
Jeremiah 32:1-25 recounts the prophet’s confusion as he obeys a perplexing command of God. Come And Fill Our Homes With Your Presence (The Family Prayer Song) is a response of devotion and obedience to God in every season.
Titus 2:11-15 reveals the empowering reason for the series of commands given to the church about discipling relationships among one another. This is a practical part of God’s saving work in our lives as we learn to love righteousness serving and being served.
After our prayers of thanksgiving and for the needs of others, we’ll give our tithes and offerings then conclude our worship singing Love Divine, All Loves Excelling.
