Pre-Service Prayer:

O Lord God, my precious Savior, as I enter Your presence this day for worship, open my ears to hear the truths You would lay upon my heart.  Instruct my mind, so that I might fully understand Your Word and truly comprehend Your will.  Move me to rejoice this Advent Season in the certainty of Your return, for then the challenges of this life will end and the joys of heaven will begin.  I ask this in Jesus’ name.  Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 1

First Reading: 

2 Timothy 3:10-17

The Bible is a book inspired by God the Holy Spirit.  It is therefore true and trustworthy.  It reveals to us how we are saved by faith in Christ Jesus and equips us to accomplish every good work!

Second Reading: 

Luke 17:26-33

Although the Bible is God’s inspired Word, many people today unfortunately ignore its truths.  They are preoccupied with their lives in this world, even as the people were in Noah’s day and in Lot’s day.  Sadly, unless they have a change of heart, they will lose the lives they are trying to gain.
