Opening Prayer: Almighty God, fill me with Your Holy Spirit this week so I may better understand the reality of Your love for me. Amen.
Read: Galatians 3:26-4:31
Reflect: What does Paul say our lives should look like as children of God? What does it mean to Paul that we are children of the free woman, rather than the slave woman? How does our lives in the promise of God affect our day to day lives?
Prayer: for the church, for others, for myself.
Hymn: “O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing”
O for a thousand tongues to sing
My great Redeemer’s praise,
The glories of my God and King,
The triumphs of His grace!
Jesus the name that charms our fears,
That bids our sorrows cease;
‘Tis music in the sinner’s ears;
‘Tis life and health, and peace.
He breaks the power of cancelled sin;
He sets the prisoner free.
His blood can make the foulest clean;
His blood availed for me.
He speaks, and listening to His voice,
New life the dead receive.
The mournful broken hearts rejoice;
The humble poor believe.
My gracious master and my God,
Assist me to proclaim,
To spread though all the earth abroad
The honors of Thy name.
Closing Prayer: Quicken us all to life in Your righteousness. You who did come to save Your people from their sins: Save, O Lord, those who put their trust in You. Amen
