INTRO TO WORSHIP

CALL TO WORSHIP
Blessed is the one who sees the truth and accepts it.
Praise be to God for He sent us a Redeemer to save us.
Blessed is the one who seeks the Father because they
will find Him
Praise be to God for He reveals Himself to all who
really search for Him
Blessed is the one who calls Jesus the Lord and sees the
truth for He is the Way the Truth and the Life
Praise be to Christ for He lived, suffered and died.
But He rose from the dead to save us and give us new life.
Blessed is the one whose hope is in the Lord and whose
faith is in Christ.
Praise be to God for He decided to be born in
Human form and restore what was broken within us.
