The Worship of God
February 23, 2020
The prelude music is a time for beginning worship. Observing a time of silence and prayer will free the congregation to focus on the worship of God.

The Scripture Lesson
Matthew 25: 31-36
When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you give me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.
2 Timothy 4: 9-13
Do your best to come to me quickly, for Demas, because he loved this world, has deserted me and has gone to Thessalonica. Crescens has gone to Galatia, and Titus to Dalmatia. Only Luke is with me. Get Mark and bring him with you, because he is helpful to me in my ministry. I sent Tychicus to Ephesus. When you come, bring the cloak that I left with Carpus at Troas, and my scrolls, especially the parchments.
This is the gospel of Christ.
Thanks be to God.

The Dismissal and Blessing
Go in the way of God to see and touch others in need.
We go in the power and name of the Savior.
God has shown you what is good.
What does the Lord require of you,
But to do justice,
And to love kindness,
And to walk humbly with your God?
Thanks be to God. Amen.

Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this:
To visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep yourself unspotted from the world.
