The Gift of Work
Call to Worship
Let this be recorded for a generation to come,
so that a people yet to be created may praise the LORD:
that he looked down from his holy height.
From heaven the LORD looked at the earth,
to hear the groans of the prisoners,
to set free those who were doomed to die,
that they may declare in Zion the name of the LORD,
and in Jerusalem his praise,
when peoples gather together,
and kingdoms, to worship the LORD.
Of old you laid the foundation of the earth,
and the heavens are the work of your hands.
They will perish, but you will remain.
They will all wear out like a garment.
You will change them like a robe, and they will pass away,
but you are the same, and your years have no end.
Psalm 102:18-22, 25-27
Confession of Sin
God of all grace, we see your work and hear your invitation to labor alongside you in your kingdom.
We confess that work is hard, and often discouraging.
Help us labor as unto the Lord.
Jesus, we remember your perfect example of humility and obedience to the Father.
May we remember that as you have blessed us with salvation, you also call us to obedience.
Holy Spirit, we trust that you are working in our lives;
May we listen as you lead us. Amen.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works,
which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
Assurance of Pardon
And it is God who establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us, and who has also put his seal on us and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.
2 Corinthians 1:21-22
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.
As we leave here and labor on in life and work,May your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Peace be with you all.
