Prayer of Intercession:

“The Gift of Gifts” from Valley of Vision

O source of all good,
What shall I render to thee for the gift of gifts,
thine own dear Son, Begotten, not created,
my Redeemer, proxy, surety, substitute,
his self-emptying incomprehensible,
his infinity of love beyond the heart’s grasp.
Herein is wonder of wonders:
he came below to raise me above,
was born like me that I might become like him.
Herein is love;
when I cannot rise to him he draws near on
wings of grace,
to raise me to himself.
Herein is power;
when Deity and humanity were infinitely apart
he united them in indissoluble unity,
the uncreated and the created.
Herein is wisdom;
when I was undone, with no will to return to him,
and no intellect to devise recovery,
he came, God-incarnate, to save me
to the uttermost,
as man to die my death,
to shed satisfying blood on my behalf,
to work out a perfect righteousness for me.
O God, take me in spirit to the watchful shepherds,
and enlarge my mind;
let me hear good tidings of great joy,
and hearing, believe, rejoice, praise, adore,
my conscience bathed in an ocean of repose,
my eyes uplifted to a reconciled Father;
place me with ox, ass, camel, goat,
to look with them upon my Redeemer’s face,
and in him account myself delivered from sin;
let me with Simeon clasp the new-born child
to my heart,
embrace him with undying faith,
exulting that he is mine and I am his.
In him thou hast given me so much
that heaven can give no more.

Discussion Questions:
  1. Do you come to church on Sunday with a sense of eager anticipation?
  2. Read 1 Peter 2:9. How does God describe believers?
  3. Matthew said that faith in Christ involves his people and it is inescapably corporate. Is this idea new to you?
  4. How has gathering with the saints helped you persevere?
  5. Are you quick to seize opportunities to fellowship on Sunday?
  6. Does knowing that there is meaning to the order of service help you see Sunday morning as a picture of the gospel?
  7. If you are consistently late or are an irregular attender, do you realize that these practices are harmful to your soul?
