Jesus Is the Answer when Someone We Love Is Suffering!

Feb 28, 1999
Pastor Paul D Nolting
Pre-Service Prayer:

O Lord, You are a God of mercy and great blessing. In Your love You have redeemed our souls and given us the gift of life everlasting. Be with us, O Lord, in the midst of the struggles and sufferings of life. Comfort us with Your promises. Guide us by Your Word. Bless us with the certainty of Your presence. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 25

First Reading: 

Leviticus 20:6–8

When people in our world face suffering they many times even today turn for help to the occult. Our God warns against such things and urges us to turn to Him for He sanctifies us!

Second Reading: 

Colossians 2:1–10

When people in our world seek knowledge they many times turn to the traditions and philosophies of men. Our God warns us against this, too, urging us to be "knit together in love" and to find the "treasures of wisdom and knowledge" in our Savior, Jesus!
