Pre-Service Prayer:

O Lord Jesus Christ—my gracious Savior and dearest Friend—You have called upon me to share Your gospel with others as You give me opportunity.  Move me to treasure Your message of forgiving love, so that it fills my heart with overflowing joy.  Open my eyes to the needs of those around me, so that I might share Your truths with them in ways that will both honor Your name and bring them blessing.  Be with me as I worship this day.  Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 96

First Reading: 

Exodua 3:1-7,10-14; Exodus 4:10-12

God called Moses to lead His people out of Egypt.  Moses felt completely unprepared and inadequate for the task.  The Lord promised to be with Moses and sent him in spite of his misgivings.  At times we may feel unprepared and inadequate, yet the Lord has called upon us to share His gospel with others!  He will be with us and help us, even as He was with Moses!

Second Reading: 

Matthew 28:16-20

Jesus has given us all a “Great Commission”—to make disciples of all nations by means of baptism and instruction in His truths. What a privilege and joy it is to share in this great work!  We can do so with confidence knowing that Jesus is always with us to help us!
