Worship Service – July 17, 2022

Guest Pastor:   Reverend Marilyn Barnard

Scripture Reading:   Luke 4:1-13   

Jesus Is Tested in the Wilderness

4 Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, left the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, where for forty days he was temptedby the devil. He ate nothing during those days, and at the end of them he was hungry. The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, tell this stone to become bread.”Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone.”The devil led him up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. And he said to him, “I will give you all their authority and splendor; it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. If you worship me, it will all be yours.”Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.”The devil led him to Jerusalem and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down from here. 10 For it is written:“‘He will command his angels concerning you to guard you carefully; 11 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.]12 Jesus answered, “It is said: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’ 13 When the devil had finished all this tempting, he left him until an opportune time.

Call to Worship:

L:  Spirit of holiness and peace,

P:  Search all our motives; try the secret places of our souls.

L:  Take possession of our wills,

P:   that they may be one with Thine.

All:  May we become the true children of light, and perfectly one with Thee.

Prayer of Confession:   Almighty and merciful Father: We have erred and strayed from Thy ways like lost sheep.  We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts.  We have offended against thy holy laws.  We have left undone those things which we ought to have done, and we have done those things which we ought not to have done.  But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.  Spare thou those who are penitent; according to thy promises declared unto man kind in Christ Jesus our Lord.  And grant, O most merciful Father, for His sake, that we may hereafter live a godly, righteous, and sober life; to the glory of Thy holy name.  Amen.

Message:   “What’s in your worship”
