Reasons to Use the Liturgy

What Lutheran’s ‘do’ in worship is what Christians do before their gracious God and Father.  They receive from Him what He freely gives them.  Undeserving thought they are, Christians rejoice in the forgiveness of sins, the life, and the salvation won for them through the death of Jesus Christ their Lord.  They give thanks for the abundance of blessing bestowed upon them, ‘without any merit or worthiness’ on their part.  Christians praise the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit for His kindness towards them.  And they receive, rejoice, give thanks, and praise according to and using the very Word that God Himself has put into our hearts and into our mouths by means of His Word, His Word written and preached, that we confess His blessed Name with one another and before the world.

What follows  are a list of 10 reasons for using the Liturgy, for your consideration.
