Order of Service 16/08

How did David gain such holy zeal for God? Today we consider this question practically. The Psalmist calls us to worship with a statement of how his zeal for God is all-consuming. We pray to enter into that attitude and then sing “My Faith looks Up to Thee”, which sings, “May thy rich grace impart, Strength to my fainting heart, My zeal inspire!”
We then read of how the zeal of ancient Israel in Malachi’s time had waned, while God reminded them of who He was and is.
William Cowper’s hymn “O For A Closer Walk” is a request for more zeal for God.
Our New Testament reading is the letter to the church at Ephesus, which had lost its first love for God. Isaac Watts then writes a prayer to the Holy Spirit, where we ask, “kindle a flame of sacred love in these cold hearts of ours.” We turn to prayer and prayer for zeal, for perseverance, for Muslims, and for the Uzbek people.
Our sermon text is Romans 12:11, as we consider the topic of holy zeal for God.
We close with a benediction that requests growth in our love and zeal for God and each other.
