“ Have Courage! ” 

Based on 1 Samuel 16:1-13 – God Calls David

       God saw David’s big heart and chose him for his service. David served God, as a warrior, by fighting a series of battles in his life. Win or lose, throughout it all, David’s faithfulness to God never wavered and ultimately won God’s favour. God calls us into a series of battles to fight in our life. To serve God and the world well, we are to fight our battles with faithfulness and courage as God’s warriors.

Prelude: “I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say”, tune Kingsfold

Welcoming & Call to Worship (from Psalm 51 NRSV)

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me.

Do not cast me away from your presence, and do not take your holy spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of your salvation and sustain in me a willing spirit.

O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise.

The sacrifice acceptable to God is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.

O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise.
