Preparing To Rejoice In Him // February 6, 2022


Jesus My Glory
Adapted from the Valley of Vision pg 24

O Lord God,
You have commanded me to believe in Jesus;
And I would flee to no other refuge,
Wash in no other fountain,
Receive from no other fullness,
Rest in no other relief. 

His water and blood was not severed in their flow at the cross,
May they they never be separated in my belief and experiences;
May I be equally convinced of the guilt and pollution of sin,
Feel my need of a Savior,
Implore of Him repentance and forgiveness,
Love holiness, and be pure in heart,
Have the mind of Jesus, and tread in his steps.

Let me not be at my own disposal,
But rejoice that I am under the care of one
Who is to wise to err,
To kind to injure,
To tender to crush.

May I scandalize none by my temper and conduct, but recommend and endear Christ to all around,
Bestow good on every one as circumstances permit, and decline no opportunity of usefulness.
Grant that I may value my place,
Not as the medium of pride and luxury,
But as the means of my support and stewardship.
Help me to be able to give to those that need,
To feel it my duty and pleasure to be merciful and forgiving,
To show the world the likeness of Jesus.

Call to Worship: 1 John 4:7-12 CSB

Knowing God through Love

Dear friends, let us love one another, because love is from God, and everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. The one who does not love does not know God, because God is love. God’s love was revealed among us[a] in this way: God sent his one and only Son into the world so that we might live through him. 10 Love consists in this: not that we loved God, but that he loved usand sent his Son to be the atoning sacrifice[b] for our sins. 11 Dear friends, if God loved us in this way, we also must love one another.12 No one has ever seen God. If we love one another, God remains in[c] us and his love is made complete in us.

God’s Word Preached : John 13:31-35

A New Commandment

31 When he had gone out, Jesus said, “Now is the Son of Man glorified, and God is glorified in him. 32 If God is glorified in him, God will also glorify him in himself, and glorify him at once. 33 Little children, yet a little while I am with you. You will seek me, and just as I said to the Jews, so now I also say to you, ‘Where I am going you cannot come.’ 34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. 35 By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
