Motives and Rewards
Call to Worship
Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples!
Sing to him; sing praises to him; tell of all his wondrous works!
Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice!
-1 Chronicles 16:8-10
Confession and Assurance
This is the good news that we have received, in which we stand, and by which we are saved, if we hold it fast:
That Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,
That he was buried,
That he was raised on the third day;
And that he appeared first to the women,
Then to Peter, and to the Twelve, and then to many faithful witnesses.
We believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God.
Jesus Christ is the first and the last, the beginning and the end;
He is our Lord and our God.
—based on Matt 16:16; Mark 16:9; John 20:28; 1 Cor 15:1-6; Rev 22:13
As you go, remember that the work that God has started by the grace of Jesus, will continue by the power of His Spirit.
May you be encouraged and walk in obedience as he does this work.
Peace be with you all.
