Call to Worship

Have someone read aloud:

Colossians 3:12-15 (NKJV)

Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.

Prayer

Merciful Father, we thank You for the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ. We were hopeless and dead in sin. Yet, You gave us new life and eternal blessings in Christ. We give thanks for Your lovingkindness and goodness. Thank You for not giving up on us and constantly forgiving us for our sins and failures. May we be merciful and do likewise to others. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

R-49 CHRISTIAN LOVE 主內的愛

1 Corinthians 13:1-13 (NKJV)


Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.


Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.


Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.


When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.


And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Lyrics - Cleanse Me (Search Me, O God)

Worship through Prayer

  1. As one who has been forgiven over and over again, help me do likewise to all those who have done wrong and offended me. Help me to forgive as You have forgiven me always.

  2. No one is perfect. All people are sinners. Lord, help me accept this truth about myself and others. I could be hurt by anyone regardless of the relationship. Please give me the love and patience to respond to an offender in a godly manner knowing that You are still working in their life.

  3. Lord, let Your will be done in and through the conflicts in my life. Let me not continue to fight with people. Instead, help me stand against the invisible spiritual enemies that desire to destroy us. Help me wait patiently until You accomplish Your good purpose in my life through the conflicts.

  4. Lord, I am willing to be Your instrument of peace and reconciliation. Give me wisdom and understanding to help those who are in conflict. Reconciliation is what You desire. This is what I desire, too. Help me, Lord. Not everyone is willing to do so. Help them to be willing, too. Thank You. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
