Call to Worship: Ephesians 4: 1-16

Here’s a responsive call to worship inspired by Ephesians 4:1-16 (and John 6).  It was written by Thom Shuman.

Call to Worship
(inspired by Ephesians 4:1-16, John 6)

Lead a life worthy of the calling
to which you are called:
We cannot do this alone,
we dare not try this alone,

so we gather as God's people.
Lead a life worthy of your calling,
a life filled with service and meekness.
We come to build up Christ's Body,
in humility and gentleness,
with patience and love.
Lead a life which reflects your calling,
that life of peace grounded in the Spirit.
We rejoice in our oneness in Christ;
we would share the grace offered to us.

Live a life worthy of the calling
to which you have been called.
We gather as God's family
at the Table prepared for us,
waiting to be fed by the Bread of life.
