Call to Worship

Have someone read aloud:

Psalm 37:39-40 (NKJV)

How blessed we are as Your children, O Lord God. Your loving presence is ever with us. We are cherished and protected by You. You have cleansed us from all evil and made us righteous in Christ Jesus forevermore. How good You are. How great is Your mercy and loving kindness.

Scripture Reading

Read aloud (together if applicable).

R-17 GOD’S INVITATION 上帝的呼請

Isaiah 55:1a, 2a-3, 6-7; 1:18; John 7:37; Matthew 11:28-30 (NKJV)

 

“Ho! Everyone who thirsts,

Come to the waters;

And you who have no money,

Come, buy and eat...

 

Why do you spend money for what is not bread, ...

Incline your ear, and come to Me.

Hear, and your soul shall live;

And I will make an everlasting covenant with you—...

 

Seek the LORD while He may be found,

Call upon Him while He is near.

Let the wicked forsake his way,

And the unrighteous man his thoughts;

Let him return to the LORD,

And He will have mercy on him;

And to our God,

For He will abundantly pardon.

 

“Come now, and let us reason together,”

Says the LORD,

“Though your sins are like scarlet,

They shall be as white as snow;

Though they are red like crimson,

They shall be as wool.

 

On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.

 

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

Song of Response

Worship Through Prayer

  1. My Creator and loving God, thank You for the gift of life and body that You have wonderfully created for me. When I am tempted to inflict self-harm because of my poor self-esteem, remind me that I belong to You and I am precious to You. Help me to see myself thru the lenses of Your loving eyes and words of truth. 

  2. Lord, You are a loving and gracious God. You give such tender care and attention even to tiny birds and fading flowers. By this, You want me to understand that You will care for me so much more because I am more precious than them. Help me to trust in Your love and learn to give myself fully to Your perfect care. Let the birds and flowers everywhere remind me of Your special love for me.

  3. Lord, You know all things. You see the past, the present and the future. My entire life is safe and secure in Your loving care. Help me learn to take life one day at a time and live by faith with Your daily grace. Let me know and experience Your loving presence each day in every season of my life. When my time on earth is almost done, let me be able to say with joy that my earthly journey with You had been such a blessed one. Amen.
