Call to Worship

Romans 1:16

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.

Invocation  
This is the day that you have made, Lord.  Help us to rejoice in it and be glad, knowing that you continually pour out Your Spirit of grace and love! Remind us of the privileges we enjoy as your people: to come to you in these moments, to confess our sins, to receive forgiveness and give it, to pray and sing and listen, to renew our fainting spirits, to rest in all your promises.  Deliver us from cold hearts and wandering thoughts, that with steady minds and burning zeal we may worship you in spirit and truth.    Amen.

The First Scripture Reading is from…
 2 Corinthians 2:14-17 (NIV)

4 But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere.15 For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. 16 To the one we are an aroma that brings death; to the other, an aroma that brings life. And who is equal to such a task?17 Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, as those sent from God.

The Second Scripture Reading is from … 
John 4:16-26 (NIV)

16 He told her, “Go, call your husband and come back.”

17 “I have no husband,” she replied.

Jesus said to her, “You are right when you say you have no husband. 18 The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband. What you have just said is quite true.”

19 “Sir,” the woman said, “I can see that you are a prophet. 20 Our ancestors worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.”

21 “Woman,” Jesus replied, “believe me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. 22 You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”

25 The woman said, “I know that Messiah” (called Christ) “is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us.”

26 Then Jesus declared, “I, the one speaking to you—I am he.”

Personal/Family Reflection 

Reflect on the discussion starters below for personal or family reflection…

  1. Why do you think so many Christians see worship as an event instead of a lifestyle?
  2. How does worship impact your personal, everyday life? 
  3. How would you describe God’s mission and the role we have in it?  What Bible passages come to mind?
  4. What problems arise when we separate mission from worship?
  5. How are you intentionally participating in God’s mission?

Time of Prayer 
(Take some time to pray personally or for others in your own words that the world would be infected with the life and love of King Jesus.)
