ORDER OF SERVICE: the Common Service, page 15ff



FIRST LESSON: Amos 7:10-15

Amos, together with the other prophets of the Old Testament and the apostles of the New Testament, had direct calls from the Lord. Our pastors and teachers have calls from the same Lord. It is in grace and to save that the Lord sends His called servants with His Word.

PSALM OF THE DAY: Psalm 78 on page 95

This Psalm is a summary record of God’s gracious and mighty deeds for the rescue of His people.

SECOND LESSON: Ephesians 1:3-14

All of God’s grace, so glorious and effective for our salvation, is but a mystery until God reveals it and gives the message for proclamation.

GOSPEL: Mark 6:7-13

The essence of the message is trust. Trust in the Lord, who calls to repentance, that He will forgive and still be gracious.

THE SERMON: 1 Samuel 2:2

THEME: Build on the Rock
