CALL TO WORSHIP (Psalm 19:7–11 and the cho­rus to Hymn No. 601)

One:   The law of the Lord is per­fect; it pro­vides strength for liv­ing dai­ly. The laws of the Lord can be trust­ed, every­one can find wis­dom through them.

ALL: (sung)  Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path!

One:   The direc­tions of the Lord are right; fol­low­ing them leads us to joy. Respect for The Lord’s guid­ance leads to integri­ty which is of last­ing val­ue.

ALL: (sung)  Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path!

One:   The direc­tions the Lord gives are true; they will not steer us wrong. They are more price­less than gold, edu­ca­tion­al degrees, posi­tion or sta­tus or any oth­er thing we might val­ue in this world. When we heed them, our lives are great­ly blessed.

ALL: (sung)  Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path!

How is the Bible Inspired? Are there lim­its to it’s reli­a­bil­i­ty?

What is the dif­fer­ence between the inspi­ra­tion of the Bible and that we find in         music, art or lit­er­a­ture?
