The Covenant With Abraham
Call to Worship
Let the whole earth shout triumphantly to the Lord!
Serve the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
Acknowledge that the Lord is God.
He made us, and we are his—
his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him and bless his name.
For the Lord is good, and his faithful love endures forever;
his faithfulness, through all generations.
— Psalm 100
How long will these people treat me with contempt? Will they never believe me, even after all the miraculous signs I have done among them?
Lord, have mercy
Christ, have mercy
Lord, have mercy
Brothers and sisters, hear the good news about what Christ has done for you:
“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace that he richly poured out on us with all wisdom and understanding. He made known to us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure that he purposed in Christ as a plan for the right time—to bring everything together in Christ, both things in heaven and things on earth in him.
In him we have also received an inheritance, because we were predestined according to the plan of the one who works out everything in agreement with the purpose of his will, so that we who had already put our hope in Christ might bring praise to his glory.
In him you also were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and when you believed. The Holy Spirit is the down payment of our inheritance, until the redemption of the possession, to the praise of his glory.
— Ephesians 1:7-14
Go now with the promises of God stored in your hearts and minds
Bind them like tassels to the corners of your garments
Remember God’s everlasting faithfulness
And proclaim his great deeds among the generations
Until we meet again
Peace be with you
And also with you
