Call to Worship: Grace Alone, Dustin Kensrue

Welcome

Worship Reading: REPENTANCE IS WORSHIP

We do not always think of repentance as worship, but it can be much easier to sing a rousing hymn than to turn away from our favourite sin. A sinful act involves worship of the wrong kind, submitting ourselves at that moment to serve the appetites of our pride or lust, and so repentance is literally a transfer of our worship back to the One who rightfully owns it. . . . . Worship has been misunderstood as something that arises from a feeling which “comes upon you,” but it is vital that we understand that it is rooted in a conscious act of the will, to serve and obey the Lord Jesus Christ. The feelings, the joy of having been forgiven, follow on as a consequence of our reunion with him.  — Graham Kendrick, from WORSHIP, Kingsway Publications, 1984, p.26.
