Hymns: 217; 481; 405; 221:1,4-6
Pre-Service Prayer:

Dear heavenly Father, You are my Light and my Salvation! Through the proclamation of Your law I have come to know that I am a sinner, while through the proclamation of Your gospel I have come to know that I am forgiven and by faith in Jesus as my Savior I am Your child. Be with me as I worship this day. Send Your Spirit to bless me with an understanding of Your Word, with clarity as I pray, and with joy as I sing Your praises. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 27

First Reading: 

Isaiah 32:14-20

Isaiah here speaks in poetic form of the blessings the Holy Spirit would bring to believers of the New Testament period through the proclamation of the gospel-justice, righteousness, peace, and security.

Second Reading: 

John 15:26-32, John 16:1-4

In spite of the blessings the Holy Spirit would bring, as Isaiah once foretold, Jesus informs His New Testament believers that following Him will not always be easy in a world that does not know or accept Him.
