Jesus Calls Us to Remember: A 21st Century Worship Resource for Baptism of the Lord, Year A

by the Rev. Nathan Decker

Call to Worship

 

Jesus calls us to remember our baptism, to remember who Christ is;
To remember who we are in Christ today;

To remember where Christ is;
To remember where we are heading in the Kingdom here today;

To remember what Christ is doing in the world;
To remember what ministries we are doing in the world today;

To remember that all time is within the great "I Am."
To remember that eternity is within the choices we make today.

To remember why Christ came and is with us still, still calling us
To make disciples of Jesus Christ of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen!

 

The Rev. Nathan Decker is the pastor of the South Sussex Charge of the Petersburg District of the Virginia Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. Nathan has great love for the diversity and inspiration of God's creative nature in worship.
