Call to Worship

Psalm 104:1, 31, 33-34, 35b

1 Praise the Lord, my soul.

Lord my God, you are very great;
you are clothed with splendor and majesty.
31 May the glory of the Lord endure forever;
may the Lord rejoice in his works—
I will sing to the Lord all my life;
I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.
34 May my meditation be pleasing to him,
as I rejoice in the Lord.
35 But may sinners vanish from the earth
and the wicked be no more.

Invocation 

We praise you, we worship you, we adore you.
You hold the heavens in your hand; all stars rejoice in your glory.
The stars in their courses magnify you; day and night tell of your glory.
Your peace blows over the earth, and the breath of your mouth fills all space.
We praise you, we worship you, we adore you.
Your voice comes in the thunder of the storm; the song of the wind whispers of your majesty and our hearts bow at your presence.
We praise you, we worship you, we adore you.
Accept us, your children, eternal Father, and hear our prayer.  Amen.

The First Scripture Reading is from…
 Amos 5:21-24

21 “I hate, I despise your religious festivals;
your assemblies are a stench to me.
22 Even though you bring me burnt offerings and grain offerings,
I will not accept them.
Though you bring choice fellowship offerings,
I will have no regard for them.
23 Away with the noise of your songs!
I will not listen to the music of your harps.
24 But let justice roll on like a river,
righteousness like a never-failing stream!

The Second Scripture Reading is from 

John 15:1-12

15 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. 2 He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. 3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. 4 Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.

5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. 6 If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. 7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8 This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.

9 “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. 12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.

Personal/Family Reflection 

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

  1. Imagine a time of worship without music.  What might that look like?  
  2. What regular habits have you been practicing that keep you rooted in communion with Christ?
  3. Do you think fruitful communion (Galatians 5:22-23) characterizes the church in America? Why or why not? 
  4. Is there a difference between joy-filled obedience and obedience as an obligation? 
  5. Is there anything growing in your life that contradicts the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23)?  What false vines might you be rooted in?

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.)
