I’m currently preaching a series on Robert Schnase’s book, Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations. This week we’re looking at passionate worship and I’m using the scripture Acts 2:42-47 as our scriptural focus but this also references Jesus’ words from John 4.
God we come to worship you
in Spirit and Truth!
We come to empty ourselves for you.
Receive our praise and worship, our joys and sorrows, our hopes and fears.
We give all ourselves to you in worship
so that you will fill us up with your Spirit
and send us out into your world again to continue the work of your kingdom!
Praise God! Praise God! Praise God!
