(Exodus 10. 21-29; Acts 4. 1-12)
With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to you; I will give thanks to your name, O LORD, for it is good.
Psalm 54. 6
That so, by Christ redeemed from sin and shame,
And hallowed by thy Spirit’s cleansing flame,
Ourselves, our work, and all our powers may be
A sacrifice acceptable to thee. 269. 6
Paul wrote: I do not mean to imply that we lord it over your faith; rather, we are workers with you for your joy, because you stand firm in the faith.
2 Corinthians 1. 24
Firm, faithful, watching unto prayer,
May we thy blessed will obey;
Toil in thy vineyard here, and bear
The heat and burden of the day. 364, 4
