Calls To Worship
Adapted From Psalm 50:1-6
Leader: The mighty one, God the Lord, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting.
People: Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God shines forth.
Leader: Our God comes and does not keep silence, before him is a devouring fire, and a mighty tempest all around him.
People: He calls to the heavens above and to the earth, that he may judge his people:
Leader: “Gather to me my faithful ones, who made a covenant with me by sacrifice!”
People: The heavens declare his righteousness, for God himself is judge.
Leader: Let us worship the Lord!
Adapted from Isaiah 60; Ephesians 5
Wake up! Get out of bed!
Feel the sunlight on your face!
God’s bright glory has risen for you.
But the earth is dark. Everywhere we look there is selfishness sin, greed, death, destruction.
You don’t have to be part of that. Why waste your lives on the things you “must” do in the darkness where no one will see? See how attractive those fake activities look in the light of Christ!
But God rises on you; his sunrise glory breaks over you.
We know that God is our saviour, our redeemer, our champion!
We’ll no longer need the sun during the day and the moon at night: God will be our light.
Christ has made it happen; his bright light makes the way clear.
