Fourth Sunday After Pentecost
June 28, 2020 Digital Worship Service

“Here I am to worship”
Here I am to worship, Here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that you’re my God
You’re altogether lovely, Altogether worthy
Altogether wonderful to me
Light of the World you stepped down into darkness
Opened my eyes let me see
Beauty that made this heart adore you, Hope of a life spent with you
Here I am to worship, Here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that you’re my God
You’re altogether lovely, Altogether worthy
Altogether wonderful to me
King of all days oh so highly exalted, Glorious in heaven above
Humbly you came to the Earth you created, All for love’s sake became poor
Here I am to worship, Here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that you’re my God
You’re altogether lovely, Altogether worthy
Altogether wonderful to me
I’ll never know, how much it cost, To see my sin, upon that cross
I’ll never know, how much it cost, To see my sin, upon that cross
Here I am to worship, Here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that you’re my God
You’re altogether lovely, Altogether worthy
Altogether wonderful to me
Here I am to worship, Here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that you’re my God
You’re altogether lovely, Altogether worthy
Altogether wonderful to me
Here I am to worship, Here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that you’re my God
You’re altogether lovely, Altogether worthy
Altogether wonderful to me

OPENING PRAYER
Leader:
O God, you direct our lives by your grace, and your words of justice and mercy reshape the world. Mold us into a people who welcome your word and serve one another, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.

Romans 6:12-23
A reading from Romans 6

12Do not let sin exercise dominion in your mortal bodies, to make you obey their passions. 13No longer present your members to sin as instruments of wickedness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and present your members to God as instruments of righteousness. 14For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace. 15What then? Should we sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means! 16Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness? 17But thanks be to God that you, having once been slaves of sin, have become obedient from the heart to the form of teaching to which you were entrusted, 18and that you, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness. 19I am speaking in human terms because of your natural limitations. For just as you once presented your members as slaves to impurity and to greater and greater iniquity, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness for sanctification. 20When you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. 21So what advantage did you then get from the things of which you now are ashamed? The end of those things is death. 22But now that you have been freed from sin and enslaved to God, the advantage you get is sanctification. The end is eternal life. 23For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. The word of the Lord.

Matthew 10:40-42
Leader: The Holy Gospel according to Matthew, the 10th chapter

[Jesus said to the twelve:] 40“Whoever welcomes you welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. 41Whoever welcomes a prophet in the name of a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward; and whoever welcomes a righteous person in the name of a righteous person will receive the reward of the righteous; 42and whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones in the name of a disciple—truly I tell you, none of these will lose their reward.” The gospel of the Lord.

Trust God, from the bottom of your heart
