The Sunday Morning Worship
Come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker. Psalm 95:6
June 30, 2019 11:00 A.M.
Prepare for Worship – The stiff and wooden quality about our religious lives is a result of our lack of holy desire. Complacency is the deadly foe of all spiritual growth. Acute desire must be present or there will be no manifestation for Christ to His people. A.W. Tozer

God Invites Us to Approach His Throne of Grace
Prayer and Petition: “The Broken Heart”
O Lord, no day of my life has passed that has not proved me guilty in Thy sight. Prayers have been uttered from a prayerless heart; Praise has been often praise-less sound; My best services are filthy rags. I appeal from the throne of perfect justice, to the throne of boundless grace. I am guilty, but pardoned, lost, but saved, wandering, but found, sinning, but cleansed. Give me perpetual broken heartedness, and keep me always clinging to Thy cross through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to God our Savior, who alone is wise, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever.
Climbing higher, growing in Grace
“When we first believe in Christ we see but little of him. The higher we climb the more we discover of his beauties. But who has ever gained the summit? Who has known all the heights and depths of the love of Christ which passes knowledge?
“Paul, when grown old, sitting grey-haired, shivering in a dungeon in Rome, could say with greater emphasis than we can, ‘I know whom I have believed,’ for each experience had been like the climbing of a hill, each trial had been like ascending another summit, and his death seemed like gaining the top of the mountain, from which he could see the whole of the faithfulness and the love of him to whom he had committed his soul.
“Get thee up, dear friend, into the high mountain.”
C. H. Spurgeon
