Pre-Service Prayer:

Dear Father in heaven—by Your grace and through the redemptive work of Your Son, You have saved my soul. Through Your Word You have enlightened my heart, and You nourish my spirit. As I worship in Your presence today, instruct me with Your truths and fill me with a desire to love and serve You every day. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 46

First Reading: 

2 Samuel 7:17-29

David wanted to build a house for the LORD, but Nathan informed David that the LORD would build a house for him—an eternal habitation in Jesus Christ! Our lesson reveals David’s prayerful response, in which he marvels at the LORD’s grace and goodness both to him and to His Old Testament people!

Second Reading: 

John 4:46-54

A nobleman from Capernaum once came to Jesus with the request that He come with him and heal his sick son. Jesus sent the man home assuring him that his son would not die but would live. Later the father learned that his son’s fever left the moment Jesus said that he would live. He and his household then knew and believed that Jesus was the Savior whom God had promised!
