Pre-Service Prayer:

Lord Jesus, You have entrusted me with the Gospel and made me a messenger of Your saving Word. Yet, I know how sinful and weak I am. Can I really adequately share Your Word with others? You assure me that I can, because Yours is the Word and Yours is the power. Keep me confident of this truth. Use me and let Your glory shine through me. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 119:73-80

First Reading: 

Psalm 147

How well do your friends, family, and acquaintances know God? What can they learn about God from you? The psalmist praises God for many great and glorious works of God. These are the wonderful works of God we can proclaim to others! These are the wonderful works of God that give glory to Him.

Second Reading: 

Acts 4:1-21

Peter and John healed a lame man in Jesus' name. As a result, the Jewish Council threatened them saying they should no longer speak about Jesus. The apostles replied, first of all, that there is no one else who can give salvation. Secondly, they said that they couldn't help but speak of the grace of God and salvation through Christ. The glorious news of salvation cannot be kept hidden! We know and understand our weaknesses, we feel inadequate, but Jesus has given us His Word to use in serving others. He will equip us and to Him be the glory!
