Order of Service 16/09

In Hebrews 3:1-6, the author transitions from the comparing Jesus to angels in the office of king to comparing Jesus to Moses in the office of prophet. We remind ourselves of the privilege of hearing the prophetic Word of God by reading Psalm 119:17-18 and singing “Speak, O Lord”.
Our anthem of praise for this ever-speaking God is “Praise to the Almighty”.

Our Old Testament reading explains what a true prophet was to be. We then sing a prayer taken from “Vally of Vision”, “O Great God”. John 6 reminds us of the great power of the greatest prophet of all, and how the people of Israel recognised Him in that office. We then offer God both our petitions and our gifts, and turn to compare Jesus and Moses. We close with a hymn of joy to Jesus, the “Word of God Incarnate”.
