Sin and You Must Part

 
CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
 
O with due rev'rence let us then
to God's house now repair;
then humble kneel before him, and
pour out our humble prayer,
 —Psalm 132:7
Suggested tune: Crimond (CM)


 
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
Bear fruit worthy of repentance.
—Matthew 3:8
 
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
There must be repentance, then, and that repentance must be practical. It is no use whining and crying, and going into the enquiry rooms with a lie in your right hand, and then going home to swear and drink, or to break the Sabbath, and to live as you like—and all the while hoping to enter heaven. No, sin and you must part, or else Christ and you can never keep company.
 —Charles Spurgeon
 
TODAY'S PRAYER
May I not wallow in sorrow for my sins, Lord, but rise and do what you would have me do—both in and for the world...
 
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
