Calls To Worship

Commandments

Adapted from Psalm 19:7-10

Leader:            The instructions of the Lord are perfect, reviving the soul.

People:           The commandments of the Lord are right, bringing joy to the heart.

Leader:            The laws of the Lord are true; each one is fair.

People:           They are more desirable than gold, even the finest gold.

                        They are sweeter than honey, even honey dripping from the comb! 

All:                  Let us worship God!

Submitted by Chip Hardwick


Adapted from Psalm 112

Leader:            Praise the Lord!  Happy are those who fear the Lord, who greatly delight in God’s commands. 

People:           Their descendants will be mighty in the land;

the generation of the upright will be blessed.

Leader             It is well with those who deal generously, who conduct their affairs with justice.

People:           They have given to the poor; their righteousness endures forever!

All:                  Let us worship God!

 Adapted from Psalm 119:5-7

Oh, that my ways were steadfast 

In obeying your decrees! 

Then I would not be put to shame 

When I consider all your commands. 

We will praise you with an upright heart 

As we learn your righteous laws. 

Let us open our hearts to your guidance, oh God, as we worship you.

Adapted from John 13:33-34

Leader: “My children, I will be with you only a little longer. You will look for me, and just as I told the Jews, so I tell you now: Where I am going, you cannot come.

People: “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 

Leader: By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
