Psalm 40

First Reading: 

1 Kings 17:17-24

Elijah was God’s faithful prophet. As such, God was with him and at times worked miracles through him. Here Elijah raised a widow’s son from the dead and thereby confirmed for her the truth of God’s Word.

Second Reading: 

1 Thessalonians 5:14-24

St. Paul here issues a series of exhortations, all of which call upon us Christians to be faithful to our Savior God. Let us strive to be so, knowing that our Savior will be faithful to us!
