Pre-Service Prayer:

Dear Lord, we live in a day when society shows little respect for Your word or Your will. Preserve us from such unbelief. Rather, move us always to listen to You with open hearts and ready ears, so that we might grow in Your grace, increase in our faith, and be moved always to live our lives in love. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 46

First Reading: 

2 Chronicles 34:14-28

There was a time in ancient Israel’s history when the word of God was literally lost! It was found during young Josiah’s reign. Josiah was moved by the LORD in faith to humble himself before God, an action that led to his personal blessing and a postponement of God’s impending judgment upon His rebellious people.

Second Reading: 

John 8:31-47

Jesus confronted the religious indifference and unbelief of many people in His day by pointing to the truths He was sharing openly with them. He assures us that if we abide in His words we are indeed His disciples, we will know the truth, and that truth will set us free!
