Last Sunday morning we looked at Romans 9:1-5 – Paul’s Passion and Purpose. There was no evening service as we joined together with DECA (Dundee Evangelical Churches Alliance) for their joint service, at which Sinclair preached.
Songs: O Praise the Name; Joy to the World; Ps 23 (Townend); Ps 116:1-9; Hear the Call of the Kingdom
Readings: Acts 12:19-25, Psalm 116
Sermon: Romans 9:1-5 – Paul’s Passion and Purpose
Here is a prayer that I read from The Valley of Vision this morning:
Every morning I vow to love you more fervently
To serve You more sincerely,
to be more devoted in my life,
to be wholly Yours;
yet I soon stumble, backslide,
and have to confess my weakness, misery and sin.
But I bless You that the finished work of Jesus needs no addition for my doings,
that his oblation is sufficient satisfaction for my sins.
If future days be mine, help me to amend my life,
to hate and abhor evil,to flee the sins I confess.
Make me more resolute, more watchful, more prayerful.
Let no evil fruit spring from evil seeds my hands have sown;
Let no neighbour be hardened in vanity and folly by my want of circumspection.
If this day I have been ashamed of Christ and his Word,
or have shown unkindness, malice, envy, lack of love, and ill advised speech, hasty temper,
let it be no stumbling block to others,
or dishonour to Your Name.
O help me to set an upright example that will ever rebuke vice,
allure to goodness, and evidence that lovely are the ways of Christ.
And here is a new song from City Alight –
