A Different Gospel?

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
Hear, Lord, the voice of my complaint,
preserve my life from fear;
hide me from plotting enemies,
from evil crowding near.
The workers of iniquity
their deadly shafts prepare;
they aim at me their treach'rous words;
O save me from their snare.
 —Psalm 64:1-4
Suggested tune: Kingsfold (CMD)


SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel—not that there is another gospel, but there are some who are confusing you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should proclaim to you a gospel contrary to what we proclaimed to you, let that one be accursed!
—Galatians 1:6-8 

FOOD FOR THOUGHT
To know what are the leading points of the gospel, is a matter of unceasing importance. When these are attacked, the gospel is destroyed.
 —John Calvin 
TODAY'S PRAYER
Turn me again to your Word, O Lord. Help me to understand the depth and simplicity of grace, to abandon my own attempts to earn your love, and to lean wholly on your mercy...
 
YOUR OWN PRAYERS
Allow the above to help guide your own confession, praise, thanksgiving, and/or petition.

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 debts as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.
 —Matthew 6:9-13
