Call to Worship

Have someone read aloud:

Galatians 6:7-9 (NKJV)

 

"Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart."

Prayer

God Almighty, there is no one like You. You are perfect in every way. Your wisdom is above and beyond all else. We bow and worship You for You alone are God. We are Yours. Our true love and obedience belong to You alone. Amen.

Scripture Reading

Read aloud (together if applicable).

R-52: THE BEATITUDES (八福)

Matthew 5:1-12 (NKJV)


And seeing the multitudes, He went up on a mountain, and when He was seated His disciples came to Him. Then He opened His mouth and taught them, saying:


“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.


Blessed are those who mourn,
For they shall be comforted.


Blessed are the meek,
For they shall inherit the earth.


Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
For they shall be filled.


Blessed are the merciful,
For they shall obtain mercy.


Blessed are the pure in heart,
For they shall see God.


Blessed are the peacemakers,
For they shall be called sons of God.


Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.


Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Sermon

Song of Response

Lyrics - Higher Ground

Worship through Prayer

  1. Lord, help my heart to stop wavering between this world and You. Help me to resolve fully to live in obedience to Your Word. I want to walk in the path of righteousness that You have prepared for me.

  2. Remind me that the pleasures of this world can never bring me true joy and satisfaction. Help me not be deceived nor be trapped in sin again because of my unbridled foolish desires. Keep me holy and pure.

  3. Save those who have fallen in sin. May Your Spirit convict them of their sins and lead them to repentance. May Your mercy be upon them. Forgive them, O Lord, and restore to them the joy of Your salvation. Let it not be too late for them to turn from their wicked ways because of their hardened hearts.

Self-Reflection & Discussion

  1. Which of the characteristics of a God-blessed man do you possess, and which ones do you need to develop or improve?

  2. What needs to be changed in your beliefs, values, and lifestyle to keep your feet on the right path and bear fruits?
