THE WORD

FIRST LESSON: Jeremiah 15:15-21

The mighty prophet, Jeremiah, experiences the great internal battle of every true believer in the true God. Repentance is God’s prescription for the wayward prophet.

PSALM OF THE DAY: Psalm 121 on page 112

The Church lifts its eyes, confidently expecting the protection of its covenant God.

SECOND LESSON: Romans 12:1-8

God’s mercy, not our accomplishments, moves His New Testament people to spiritual worship. Our bodies are living sacrifices. Our minds are renewed in the image of their Creator. There is no room for pride when each sees its mission as a ministering member of the body

of Christ.

GOSPEL: Matthew 16:21-26

Satan again tempts our Lord Jesus to abandon the way of the cross. This time is clever appeal is made through Jesus’ beloved disciple, Peter. The Savior’s stinging rebuke was fitting.

THE SERMON: Romans 12:1-8

THEME: God’s Mercy Transforms Us
