2020-10-25 Have You Received Him?

[Col 2:1-8 ESV] For I want you to know how great a struggle I have for you and for those at Laodicea and for all who have not seen me face to face, that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, to reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and the knowledge of God’s mystery, which is Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. I say this in order that no one may delude you with plausible arguments. For though I am absent in body, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the firmness of your faith in Christ. Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving. See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.

Call To Worship – UMH 878 “Prayer Of Thanksgiving”

We praise and thank you, O God, for you are without beginning and without end.
Through Christ, you created the whole world; through Christ, you preserve it.
You made the day for the works of light, and the night for the refreshment of our minds and our bodies.
Keep us now in Christ; grant us a peaceful evening, a night free from sin; and bring us at last to eternal life.
Through Christ and in the Holy Spirit, we offer you all glory, honor, and worship, now and for ever.
Amen.
