Pre-Service Prayer:

O Lord God, as I enter into Your presence for worship this day, move me to entrust myself to You completely.  You are a God of grace, mercy, and power.  You created the universe and control it as well.  There is nothing that You cannot do.  Therefore, may I come to You with a repentant heart, a thankful spirit, and open mind, and a growing confidence in You and in Your Son, Jesus Christ.  Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 17

First Reading: 

Deuteronomy 7:6-11

The LORD chose the children of Israel to be His special treasure in Old Testament times not because they were great, but rather because He was gracious!  In the same way God by grace remains faithful to us in our day.  May we remain faithful to Him!

Second Reading: 

Titus 3:3-8

God has graciously saved us, not because of anything we have done, but rather according to His mercy through His means of grace and the work of the Holy Spirit.  Let us, therefore, thank Him and prove ourselves faithful to Him by maintaining a life of good works!
