Pre-Service Prayer:

Dear Jesus, thank You for making the payment for my sins. Send the Holy Spirit through Your Word to live in me so that I may glorify You, the Father, and the Holy Spirit in my body and in my spirit. With that goal in mind, bless us all in worship today and shine in our hearts and lives. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 5

First Reading: 

Micah 7:14-20

God pronounces His anger and judgment on all sin. In the case of Old Testament Israel, God’s judgment included captivity for the nation. In the midst of judgment, God also promises mercy. He promised to deliver His people and thereby glorify His name. There is no God like the true God who pardons our sin and drowns them in the depths of the sea!

Second Reading: 

John 4:25-42

Jesus spoke to the Samaritan woman at the well because He loved her and cared for her soul. Her past was littered with sinfulness. Jesus brought the news of redemption to the woman. Jesus explained to His disciples that His work was to “harvest” souls by redeeming them and bringing the news of redemption to them.
