NL143 Gospel as Salvation

Romans 1:1-17
Matthew 9:10-13

Call to Worship
God you call us to one another
You call us together
God your Gospel is for all
Come let us celebrate Good News and Praise God today

Call to Confession: God calls everyone to confess, for everyone is invited to find comfort in God. Let us know that nothing is too big or small for God to hold.

Prayer of Confession: God I confess that I do not always long to see people the way that Paul does in this letter. I sometimes have trouble finding the wisdom in those who are different from me. Too often I use the word different to mean that I do not like something, instead of a word of wonder. Forgive me, teach me to remember that the Gospel is a word of wonder, teach me not to be ashamed, help me to celebrate the wonders of your creation, prayer. Amen.

Assurance of Pardon: Hear the Good News, Jesus longs to be with us, and forgives us as soon as we asks, so we can be assured of the comfort: In Jesus Christ we are Forgiven. Amen.

Prayer of the Day/Dedication: God may we go into world, longing to see one another through the eyes of God we pray. Amen.
