Worship Service – July 24, 2022

Guest Pastor: Dr. Alan Hickok

Scripture:                  Rev. 3:14-22

To the Church in Laodicea

14 “To the angel of the church in Laodicea write:

These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation. 15 I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! 16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. 17 You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. 18 I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.  19 Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. 20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.  21 To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”



Call to Worship:

L:  Lord, you have called us here this day.

P:  Reveal your purposes for us.

L:  We open our hearts to receive God’s good news.

P:  Lord, make us ready to serve you.

L:  We are here – we will worship God!

P:  We will sing our praises to the Almighty One.


Prayer of Confession:     Heavenly Father, we realize how easy it is to become complacent and lukewarm in our Christian walk, when we allow the passing things of this world to take our attention away from Jesus.  May our hearts be rooted and grounded in Him, and we pray that we may live a life that honors Your name so that we may overcome in all things and gain the promised reward of sitting with Christ on His throne in His coming kingdom.  This we ask in Jesus’ name,  AMEN.

Message:                    ”What’s your Temperature?”
