Pre-Service Prayer:

Heavenly Father, pride and a sense of self-sufficiency often get in the way of humbly submitting to Your will and relying on You. Forgive this and all the rest of my sins. Work in my heart a true humility that rejoices to be Your child and seeks to demonstrate selflessness in thought, word, and action. To that end, send Your Holy Spirit upon me this morning and hear my prayers and praises. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 25

First Reading: 

Ephesians 4:1-6

Jesus selflessly came to the earth and accomplished our salvation. As children of God we are able to reflect Jesus in our lives as we show similar selflessness in our dealings with others.

Second Reading: 

Luke 14:1-11

Jesus noticed that guests at a feast chose the best places for themselves. Jesus told a parable to instruct them concerning humility.
