COMPLINE - (Supper)


A Joyful Assembly

We have come before God’s holy mountain:
the heavenly Jerusalem,
the city of the living God;
we have come before myriads of angels
in festal gathering:
before the assembly
of the first-born citizens of heaven;
we have come before God the judge of all:
before the spirits of the righteous made perfect,
and Jesus the mediator of a new covenant.
We are receiving a kingdom
that cannot be shaken:
let us therefore give thanks to God,
thus offering acceptable worship
with reverence and awe:
for our God is a consuming fire.

New Testament Reading - Spiritual Blessings in Christ


6Now all praise to God for his wonderful kindness to us and his favor that he has poured out upon us because we belong to his dearly loved Son. 7So overflowing is his kindness toward us that he took away all our sins through the blood of his Son, by whom we are saved; 8and he has showered down upon us the richness of his grace—for how well he understands us and knows what is best for us at all times.

. . . . . Ephesians 1:6-8
