Posted: September 14, 2015 by Joshua Knott

Daily Worship - September 14-19, 2015
"Let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer
to God acceptable worship with reverence and awe." Hebrews 12:28


Psalm 118:1-4
1 Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!
2 Let Israel say, “His steadfast love endures forever.”
3 Let the house of Aaron say, “His steadfast love endures forever.”
4 Let those who fear the Lord say, “His steadfast love endures forever.”


“To God Be the Glory” (v. 2)
O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood! 
  To every believer the promise of God;
  the vilest offender who truly believes,
  that moment from Jesus forgiveness receives.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the earth hear his voice!
  Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the people rejoice!
  O Come to the Father thro’ Jesus the Son,
  and give him the glory, great things he has done!


 Westminster Shorter Catechism Questions 60-62
Q. 60. How is the sabbath to be sanctified?
A. The sabbath is to be sanctified by a holy resting all that day, even from such worldly employments and recreations as are lawful on other days; and spending the whole time in the public and private exercises of God's worship, except so much as is to be taken up in the works of necessity and mercy.
Q. 61. What is forbidden in the fourth commandment?
A. The fourth commandment forbiddeth the omission or careless performance of the duties required, and the profaning the day by idleness, or doing that which is in itself sinful, or by unnecessary thoughts, words or works, about our worldly employments or recreations.
Q. 62. What are the reasons annexed to the fourth commandment?
A. The reasons annexed to the fourth commandment are, God's allowing us six days of the week for our own employments, his challenging a special propriety in the seventh, his own example, and his blessing the sabbath day.

Time of Prayer


The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name.  Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day, our daily bread and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.  And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.  For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever.  Amen.


“Gloria Patri”
Glory be to the Father and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.  Amen, amen.
