Pre-Service Prayer:

O LORD God, my dear Father in heaven—as I enter into Your presence today, I pray that You would satisfy my longing soul.  Lead me to Jesus, dear Father, and instill within me a fervent faith in and love for Your Son, my Savior, for in Him alone I find forgiveness and freedom.  In Him alone will my spiritual hunger be abated and my spiritual thirst be quenched.  Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 27

First Reading: 

Acts 5:12-20

During the early years following Jesus’ ascension, God enabled the apostles to perform many works of healing to confirm their message of salvation.  The Jewish religious leaders became angry and imprisoned them, but God opened the prison doors and instructed them to continue preaching!

Second Reading: 

1 Timothy 1:18-19

Paul encourages the young Timothy to continue to fight the good fight of faith, lest along the way he suffer shipwreck as certain others had already done.  We, too, need to strive to grow and then share the precious gospel of Christ, so that we retain that truth and receive its ultimate blessing!
