Here’s a responsive invitation to worship from Bruce Prewer. It is inspired by the suggested scripture readings for Epiphany 2, Year A, especially Psalm 40:1-11 and John 1:29-42.
Preparation for Worship
(inspired by Psalm 40:1-11, John 1:29-42)
What offering do we need to bring to God?
God does not look for sacrifices or offerings,
but for open ears, like channels for the truth.
Grand gestures and offerings are not required,
but a heart-felt delight in doing the will of God.
My friends, behold the Lamb of God
who takes away the sin of the world.
God has put a new song in my mouth,
placed a new melody on my tongue.
The love of Jesus, the Lamb of God, be with you always.
And also with you.
