HYMNS: 156, 403, 280, 618 vs 4&5

ORDER OF SERVICE: Service of the Word, page 38ff



FIRST LESSON: Ezekiel 2:1-5

How lowly God appears and how weak that Word and its preacher, since dust and ashes have the power refuse Him and reject it. Never- theless men will know that God was among them in His Word by those few who receive it and ultimately in its triumph on the last day.

PSALM OF THE DAY: Psalm 143 on page 118

The Psalm progresses from a cry for rescue to a cry for the gift of submission and obedience.

SECOND LESSON: 2 Corinthians 12:7-10

God wants His servants to know weakness in their service, lest eh effectiveness or the success of the lowly Word be ascribed to the servant and not the Word. The servant of the Word needs to learn before all others the saving power of that lowly Word in his own heart and life. He learns it only from the power of grace in the Word itself.

GOSPEL: Mark 6:1-6

Behold our humble Savior with His lowly Word. He endures it with patience and sadness that many reject Him.

THE SERMON: 2 Corinthians 12:7-10

THEME: Consider the Stakes
