Call to Worship


Jude 1: 15

1:15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard [speeches] which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.


Every Action Weighed in the Scales—

[Jude 14, 15; Ecclesiastes 12:13, 14 quoted in part.] God places every action in the scale. What a scene it will be! What impressions will be made regarding the holy character of God and the terrible enormity of sin, when the judgment, based on the law, is carried forward in the presence of all the worlds. Then before the mind of the unrepentant sinner there will be opened all the sins that he has committed, and he will see and understand the aggregate of sin and his own guilt. {7BC 953.2}


When the loyal overcomers are crowned, God would have present all who have transgressed His law and broken their covenant with Him. And not one of the righteous will be absent. They see in the Judge, Christ Jesus, the One whom every sinner has crucified. The Son of man shall come in His glory, and before Him shall be gathered all nations. The Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment to the Son (Manuscript 77, 1906). {7BC 953.3}


The day is coming, and for some it will come as a thief in the night, whereby Christ Jesus will come in His glory to judge the living and the dead. The sinner’s sins, presented before them for all the worlds to see, will be weighed in the scales. Sinners will finally come to the realization of the enormity of their sins. For the wages of sin is death. The overcomers will receive their crowns, as the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. All have been given freewill to choose whom they will serve; worship God, or worship Satan. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. John 3:17.


Dear God Almighty,

We come humbly before You in reverence. We thank You for the love and mercy You show to all who call on Your name. Even for those who do not, Your grace abounds. We do not ask for justice, we pray for mercy. We are sinners, and with every sin, we crucify Jesus afresh. We are so sorry and humbly repent of our sins and pray for Your forgiveness. We thank You for being our Savior and redeemer. We pray for strength and courage to overcome as You also overcame that we would sin no more. We pray for Your great day to come, to be with You and receive eternal life. Bless us and keep us we pray, in the name of Christ Jesus. Amen.
