what-is-my-motive-heart-check-up

Declare me innocent, O Lord, for I have acted with integrity; I have trusted in the Lord without wavering. Put me on trial, Lord, and cross-examine me. Test my motives and my heart.

Reading: Jeremiah 31:21 (NLT)

Set up road signs; put up guideposts. Mark well the path by which you came. Come back again, my virgin Israel; return to your towns here.

Reading: Mark 1:16-18 (NLT)

One day as Jesus was walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew throwing a net into the water, for they fished for a living. Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!” And they left their nets at once and followed him.

Prayer:

Confession: There is one God and one mediator between heaven and earth, the man Jesus Christ, who gave Himself as a ransom for all people.

+ Create a clean heart within me, O God, so that I may become Your chosen shelter and the resting place of the Holy Spirit.

+ Holy God, Holy and Strong, Holy and Immortal, have mercy on me.

+ I make the cross of Christ upon my breast, and I ask the living God of the universe that the Light of lights banish my darkness so that I may live in the resurrection power of Your love.

+ Holy God, Holy and Strong, Holy and Immortal, have mercy on me.

Pardon: The journey from death to life is ours through Jesus Christ, by the strength, power, and mercy of God’s love. Wherever our path has taken us in the past, today is a new day in the eyes of the Lord. Let us live as children of light.

“Restore My Soul “ – Vertical Church Band

Restore my soul, revive my heart | Renew my life in every part | Reveal to me what sin remains | Then lead me to the cross again

At at the cross I’ll find the way | To live the life Your hand has made | So find me there, Lord, and help me stay | In true surrender with You, my Savior

Relight the fire that burned so strong | Reminding me what You have done | My one request is to be changed | So lead me to the cross again

Blessing

May the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ go with you, wherever He may send you. May He guide you through the wilderness, protect you through the storm. May He bring you home rejoicing at the wonders He has shown you. May He bring you home rejoicing once again into our doors.

+ In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen!
