Pre-Service Prayer:

O Lord, we are restless and often weary as we live our lives in this sin-filled world. As we gather here together to worship Your holy name, please be with us and bless us. Remove the burden of our sins. Instill within our minds a clearer understanding of Your will. Lead us to live our lives with thanksgiving and in praise of Your dear Son, through whom You have given us the promise of deliverance and eternal life. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 86

First Reading: 

Job 5:17-26

Job reminds us that God is faithful even in the midst of life’s difficulties. "Happy is the man whom God corrects," Job says. That is the comment of a mature Christian, who understands both the sinful nature of man and the precious grace of God!

Second Reading: 

Hebrews 12:18-24

With whom do we stand? Do we stand with those at the foot of Mount Sinai, who believe that they are saved by the works of the law only to find themselves under the judgment of God’s law? Or do we stand with those at the foot of Mount Zion who have been justified by the blood of Jesus and rejoice with the angels of heaven?
