Pre-Service Prayer:

Enter now my waiting heart, glorious King and Lord most holy.

Dwell in me and ne’er depart, though I am but poor and lowly.

Ah, what riches will be mine when Thou art my Guest Divine!  Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 145

First Reading: 

Romans 1:16-20

The gospel is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes.  Everyone who does not believe has no excuse, for God’s presence and power are revealed throughout His created universe.

Second Reading: 

Luke 17:20-25

The Kingdom of God is found within the hearts and minds of people who have been led by the Spirit to embrace Jesus Christ by faith.  That Kingdom will ultimately be revealed when Jesus returns in glory.
