Pre-Service Prayer:

Hallelujah, dear Lord Jesus, my risen Lord and Savior in heaven above! As I come before You to worship this day, send Your Spirit to inspire my heart with joy. Do not allow Satan or any evil foe to fill my heart with fear, but rather move my heart in faith to trust in You solely. Do not let my lips be bound in silence, but rather open them in praise of Your redeeming love. Move me, O Lord, to act upon my faith and be ready to proclaim Your salvation to everyone I know and meet. Yes, dear Lord Jesus, be with me this day! Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 118

First Reading: 

Isaiah 52:7-10

The resurrection of Jesus Christ assures us that we are at peace with God and possess by faith the gift of everlasting life. Isaiah speaks of the wonderful privilege we have as God’s children to proclaim the gospel of salvation to the ends of the earth!

Second Reading: 

1 Corinthians 15:12-22

In Paul’s day, as in our own, there are those who deny the physical resurrection of Jesus Christ. False teachers claim that such a denial makes no difference, but the apostle begs to differ. The denial of the physical resurrection of Christ undermines the entire Christian faith. Let us be assured—Jesus Christ did arise from the dead!
