Call to Worship

As we are called into worship today, it is sobering to remember that when God appeared on earth in the person of Jesus, most of the world did not recognize him and therefore did not worship him.  Today we ask for faith that God will open our eyes to see Jesus for who he is, that we might worship him in truth.

People of God, behold and see your God!

We open our eyes to see his glory.
We open our ears to hear his wisdom.
We open our hands to offer him gifts.
We open our mouths to sing his praise.
We open our hearts to offer him our love.
Jesus is our Lord and God!

Prayer
God of all, you gave your only Son to take the form of a servant and to be obedient even to death on a cross.  Give us the same mind of Christ Jesus so that, sharing in his humility, we may come to be with him in his glory.  Lord Jesus Christ, on this day you received the worship of those who hailed you as their King: Accept our praise and adoration, our worship and love; and grant that we, who now confess you with our lips, may never fail to give you the service of our lives, for the honor of your holy name, for you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end.  Amen.
The First Scripture Reading is from
Luke 23:32-38(NIV)

32 Two other men, both criminals, were also led out with him to be executed.33 When they came to the place called the Skull, they crucified him there, along with the criminals—one on his right, the other on his left. 34 Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.

35 The people stood watching, and the rulers even sneered at him. They said, “He saved others; let him save himself if he is God’s Messiah, the Chosen One.”

36 The soldiers also came up and mocked him. They offered him wine vinegar37 and said, “If you are the king of the Jews, save yourself.”

38 There was a written notice above him, which read: this is the king of the jews.

The Second Scripture Reading is from
John 12:20-33 (NIV)

20 Now there were some Greeks among those who went up to worship at the festival. 21 They came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, with a request. “Sir,” they said, “we would like to see Jesus.” 22 Philip went to tell Andrew; Andrew and Philip in turn told Jesus.

23 Jesus replied, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. 24 Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. 25 Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life.26 Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be.My Father will honor the one who serves me.

27 “Now my soul is troubled, and what shall I say? ‘Father, save me from this hour’? No, it was for this very reason I came to this hour. 28 Father, glorify your name!”

Then a voice came from heaven, “I have glorified it, and will glorify it again.” 29 The crowd that was there and heard it said it had thundered; others said an angel had spoken to him.

30 Jesus said, “This voice was for your benefit, not mine. 31 Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this world will be driven out. 32 And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.” 33 He said this to show the kind of death he was going to die.

Questions for Personal/Family Reflection 
Reflect personally or as a family on the following questions…
  1. In what particular ways has Jesus changed your understanding of God? Why is this important to you?
  2. What do you think Jesus meant when he said, “Father, forgive them, they know not what they do”?  In what way/ways did the people not know what they were doing?
  3. How do the sufferings of Jesus show us how to truly live?
  4. Can you think of a scenario where willingly suffering for someone else leads to life?
  5. What is something that stood out to you from this morning’s lesson?  Why did that stand out? 
  6. What has your life been revolving around?  How could you revolve around Jesus?

Time of Prayer 
(Take some time to pray personally or for one another in your own words that God’s mercy, forgiveness, and love would come on earth as it is in heaven.)

Benediction 
Colossians 2:13-14 (NIV)
13 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, 14 having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. 15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.

 

 

 

 

 

Communion Instructions for Sunday

 

 

 

At 10:50 AM on Sunday morning, we invite you to participate in Holy Communion as an act of unity during this time.  At this time, we invite you to grab a piece of bread/cracker and some juice and follow the instructions below.
Read the Words of Institution
Colossians 2:13-14 (NIV)

13 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, 14 having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. 15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.

Holding the bread, say…

The body of Christ, broken for you.  Take and eat.  

Holding the juice, say…
The blood of Christ, shed for you.  Take and drink.   
Prayer

Lord Jesus, you stretched out your arms of love upon the hard wood of the cross that everyone might come within the reach of your saving embrace.  Even when we are scattered, unite us in your truth and love.  And so clothe us in your Spirit that we, reaching forth our hands in love, may draw those who do not know you to the knowledge and love of you; for the honor of your name.  Amen.
