Opening Hymn

UMH #451 Be Thou My Vision

Wesley Praise Band

Verse 1
Be thou my vision, oh Lord of my heart;
naught be all else to me, save that thou art.
Thou my best thought, by day or by night,
waking or sleeping, thy presence my light.

Verse 2
Be thou my wisdom, and thou my true word;
I ever with thee and thou with me, Lord;
thou and thou only, first in my heart,
great God of heaven, my treasure thou art.

Verse 3
Great God of heaven, my victory won,
may I reach heaven's joys, O bright heaven's Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
still be my vision, O ruler of all.

Call to Worship

based on Matthew 22.36-40

When Jesus' disciples gathered together, they asked him a question:

"Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?"

He answered them, "'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.'

This is the greatest and first commandment.

And a second is like it: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'

On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets."

May we continue to listen and learn what the Lord says to us today.

Pastoral Prayer

The Lord's Prayer

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

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever.

Amen.

Scripture

Luke 10:25-37 (NRSV)

25. Just then a lawyer stood up to test Jesus. "Teacher," he said, "what must I do to inherit eternal life?" 

26. He said to him, "What is written in the law? What do you read there?" 

27. He answered, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself." 

28. And he said to him, "You have given the right answer; do this, and you will live." 

29. But wanting to justify him, he asked Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?" 

30. Jesus replied, "A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell into the hands of robbers, who stripped him, beat him, and went away, leaving him half dead. 

31. Now by chance a priest was going down that road; and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 

32. So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 

33. But a Samaritan while traveling came near him; and when he saw him, he was moved with pity. 

34. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, having poured oil and wine on them. Then he put him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 

35. The next day he took out two denarii, gave them to the inkeeper, and said, 'Take care of him; and when I come back, I will repay you for whatever more you spend.' 

36. Which of these three, do you think, was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of the robbers?" 

37. He said, "The one who showed him mercy." Jesus said to him, "Go and do likewise."

Come, church, arise
Love with His hands
See with His eyes
Bind it around you
Let it never leave you

Stand firm in the Truth now
Set your hearts above
