This Week in Worship

  Sept. 6, 2015

This Sunday begins a new series in worship, “Called to Faithfulness.” Over the next weeks we will look at biblical figures who were called by God. Each was called to a specific task of leadership. Yet all of them—Joshua, Gideon, Ruth, Samuel, David—were called to be faithful to God, who had led them from bondage to freedom. How fitting that we begin this series with Deuteronomy 6, as Moses tells the people to love God with all their hearts, all their souls, and all their might. Moses is telling these people, whom God has delivered from oppression in Egypt, how to live in a new land. This text is so important to Jews that it is recited daily. It is the first prayer that is taught to Jewish children. It is central to their faith and central to enabling them to live lives of faithfulness. Our Lord Jesus repeated these same words during his ministry on earth. Loving God with everything we have, everything we are, is central to our faith, as well. May we be challenged anew as we reflect on these ancient words that con­tinue to speak to us today.    —Susan Dengler
