THE WORD

FIRST LESSON: Isaiah 52:1-6

Our God is the Lord of history. He subjugates nations as He wills and redeems His people out of pure grace.

PSALM OF THE DAY: Psalm 116 on page 96

We can rejoice as we come to the Lord’s house to worship Him.

SECOND LESSON: 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

Jesus’ resurrection is the sure foundation of our confidence that those who have “fallen asleep in Him” will participate in the resurrection of the dead on the Last Day. The saints who are still living on earth will join the resurrected in a grand reunion with each other and an eternal communion with the Lord.

GOSPEL: Matthew 25:1-13

The parable of the ten virgins calls us to constant vigilance, since the day and the hour o four Lord’s judgment is not known.

THE SERMON: 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

THEME: In Christ We Are Winners
