|Opening Hymn||Let Us Build A House||Hymn #301|
|Prayer of Adoration & Confession (Responsive)||Elder Jackie Morgan|
One: The apostle Paul urges us to live together
in a manner worthy of the good news of Christ.
But, too often, we defy the gospel
by sinning against God and one another.
Trusting the Lord to receive us with grace,
let us confess our sin and the sin of this world.
All: Lord, your generosity surprises us.
For you do not mete out grace
according to how hard we work,
or how often we worship,
or how closely we follow the rules.
No, you lavish grace upon us
according to your own desire.
But we insist on deciding
who is deserving and who is not.
We grumble that some receive too little
while others have more than they deserve.
Forgive us, we pray.
Help us to live with humility and gratitude
so that our words and deeds
might embody your grace.
