‘Behold, I am doing a new thing;

The people whom I formed for myself,
that they might declare my praise.’

Conclusion

Give us, Almighty Father, that due sense of all thy mercies,
that our hearts may be unfeignedly thankful,
and that we shew forth thy praise,
not only with our lips, but in our lives;
by giving up ourselves to thy service,
and by walking before thee in holiness and righteousness all our days.

 


 


 

Romans 6.12-23

Do not let sin exercise dominion in your mortal bodies, to make you obey their passions. No longer present your members to sin as instruments of wickedness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and present your members to God as instruments of righteousness. For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.

What then? Should we sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means! Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness? But thanks be to God that you, having once been slaves of sin, have become obedient from the heart to the form of teaching to which you were entrusted, and that you, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness. I am speaking in human terms because of your natural limitations. For just as you once presented your members as slaves to impurity and to greater and greater iniquity, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness for sanctification.

When you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. So what advantage did you then get from the things of which you now are ashamed? The end of those things is death. But now that you have been freed from sin and enslaved to God, the advantage you get is sanctification. The end is eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Matthew 10.40-42

Jesus said to the twelve:
‘Whoever welcomes you welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. Whoever welcomes a prophet in the name of a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward; and whoever welcomes a righteous person in the name of a righteous person will receive the reward of the righteous; and whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones in the name of a disciple — truly I tell you, none of these will lose their reward.’

Intercession

We pray to Jesus, saying,

Maranatha. Come, Lord Jesus.

Come to your Church as Lord and Judge …
Help us to live in the light of your coming and give us a longing for your kingdom.

Maranatha. Come, Lord Jesus.

Come to your world as King of the nations …
Before you rulers will stand in silence.

Maranatha. Come, Lord Jesus.

Come to your people with a message of victory and peace …
Give us the victory over death, temptation and evil.

Maranatha. Come, Lord Jesus.

Come to us as Saviour and Comforter …
Break into our lives, where we struggle with sickness and distress,
and set us free to serve you for ever.

Maranatha. Come, Lord Jesus.

Come to us from heaven, Lord Jesus, with power and great glory.
Lift us up to meet you,
with all your saints and angels,
to live with you for ever.

Maranatha. Come, Lord Jesus.

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;

For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever. 
Amen.
