O Lord, our blessed God and Savior, we pray that You would be with us today and every day. Help us both to hear and treasure Your eternal truths.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 51

First Reading: 

Deuteronomy 11:18-28

Moses urged the children of Israel to treasure God's Word and to teach it to their children. If they kept God's Word, they would be blessed in the land the Lord would give them. If they refused to obey God's Word, they would be cursed. Let us ever treasure and keep God's Word and so also experience God's rich blessing!

Second Reading: 

Romans 3:21-28

All people have sinned and have fallen short of God's perfect standard. All people have likewise been justified by God's grace through the redemptive work of Jesus. We receive the blessing of that redemption by faith in Jesus--not by our good works!
