Pre-Service Prayer:

O Lord God, as I enter Your presence for worship this morning, open my mind so that I might learn Your truths. Open my heart so that I might receive Your love. Open my lips that I might sing Your praises. Yes, Lord, open my entire life and enter therein so that I might serve completely and honor Your saving name with my every thought, word, and action. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 119:89-96

First Reading: 

1 Corinthians 8:1-13

We are to exercise our Christian freedom in love, so that we do not in any way harm those whose understanding is weak. Paul says, in fact, that he would forgo his Christian freedom rather than cause a brother to stumble.

Second Reading: 

Mark 1:21-28

Jesus taught with authority and proclaimed the truths of God in ways that amazed His listeners. In addition He used His power to cast out unclean spirits, freeing individuals from Satan’s bondage.
