“Go all in: Giving as Hopeful Expectation”
Malachi 3:6 12
October 13, 2019
Pastor Gregory D. Cox
Let us pray: Almighty and gracious God, we are overwhelmed by your glory and your presence and grace that overflows so freely in our lives. Coming today gives us an opportunity to thank you for your love and overflow in our lives. I sit here and reflect on the week of the past and know that you had a hand in it, and I pray that I might once again feel that presence and movement in my life in the week to come. Move me to a reflection of your love in our lives and help me to live as though Christ is in me. Help us to grow, help us to be gracious in receiving and abundant in our giving. We lift this prayer to you, in Jesus name. Amen.
What a joy it is to be in worship with you this morning as we come into the presence of the one who has given us so much. We are in our second week in our generosity series here at Ingomar Church and we are excited by the way in which we are able to share toge ther in study and devotion but also in hearing God’s word that moves us to a new way of understanding the Lord’s work in our lives and in the life of our church.
