Pastor Paul D Nolting
Hymns: 3; 395:1-4; 411:1, 5-7; 798
Pre-Service Prayer:

O Lord God, my dear Savior, I have come into Your presence this day to hear Your holy Word. Reveal to me the truths You have revealed in that Word, so that I might grow in faith, increase in love, be moved faithfully to serve You all my days. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 15

First Reading: 

1 Kings 21:1-14

God forbids lying in the 8th Commandment. When men lie, terrible things often happen as we see in the story of Naboth’s Vineyard.

Second Reading: 

Luke 7:1-10

In the story of the Centurion’s Servant we find the Jewish elders in Capernaum keeping the 8th Commandment by speaking well of the Centurion as he sought help from Jesus for his sick servant.
