Calls To Worship


Adapted from Matthew 12:18-21

Pastor: “Behold, my servant whom I have chosen, my beloved with whom my soul is well pleased.

All: I will put my Spirit upon him, and he will proclaim justice to the Gentiles.

Pastor: He will not quarrel or cry aloud, nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets; a bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not quench, until he brings justice to victory;

All: and in his name the Gentiles will hope.”

Adapted from Mark 10:42-45

Jesus says, “You know that those who are regarded as rulers over the Gentiles lord it over them. 

Not so with you. 

Instead, whoever wants to become great must be your servant. 

And whoever wants to be first must be a slave of all. 

For even the Son of Man did not come to be served,  

But to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.

Adapted from Philippians 2:5-8

Have the same mindset as Christ Jesus, who being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing, by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death —even death on a cross!

We are called into the church to accept the cost and joy of discipleship,

to be God’s servants in the service of all,

to share in Christ’s baptism and eat at his table,

to join Christ in his passion and victory.

“Beloved let us love one another, for love comes from God.”

All who love are born of God and know God.

Let us worship God!

Leader: Arise! Shine! Christ’s Church has assembled.

People: We are one body, with Christ as our head.

Leader: What kind of body is this?

People: The Body of Christ, brought together not by human flesh, but by the sovereign Lord.

Leader: And who does he call us to be?

People: A people who look not to their own interests, but to the interests of others. Those who proclaim the goodness of their Lord.

Leader: Come, Let us worship as one united body.
