You Have Been Invited to Jesus' Wedding Reception!

Oct 17, 2010
Pastor Paul D Nolting
Hymns: 30:1-2, 5-6; 278; 371; 613
Pre-Service Prayer:

O LORD—my Creator, Redeemer, and Comforter, please help me to overcome my many weaknesses. Move me to depend upon You for strength, rather than looking to myself. Fill my heart with joy as I read Your eternal Word, rather than seeking joy in the material things of this life. As I enter Your presence once again draw me ever closer to You, so that I might glorify You with my every word and action. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 48

First Reading: 

Isaiah 25:6-9

Isaiah here speaks prophetically of the joys that await all believers in heaven. God is preparing a most delightful banquet in which we will celebrate with Him His victory over sin and death. Let us be glad and rejoice in His salvation!

Second Reading: 

Philippians 4:4-13

Paul here provides wonderful encouragements for our daily lives. We are to rejoice, for our God is able to take care of us and grant us true peace. We are to focus on everything that is good, knowing that God will enable us to do everything that is necessary.
