THE WORD

FIRST LESSON: Ezekiel 34:11-16,23,24

God expected His kings to gently lead His people by their godly words and actions. Instead, they exploited the people for their own purposes. It was time for God to intervene. He would tend His flock in their best interests. It points to Jesus as the perfect Shepherd-King.

PSALM OF THE DAY: Psalm 47 on page 85

This reminds us of all the praise due God.

SECOND LESSON: 1 Corinthians 15:20-28

Christ’s bodily resurrection from the dead is the guarantee that we will rise after Him to be with Him as He reigns over all things.

GOSPEL: Matthew 27:27-31

Never was pagan mockery more prophetic! Jesus is indeed the King of the Jews. He is the King of kings. Unlike other kings, our Savior is a King who conquers by allowing Himself to be conquered.

THE SERMON: Matthew 27;27-31

THEME: Hail, King of the Jews

OUR FATHER’S BUSINESS

 

FOR THE LORD’S WORK AT HOME We have met the amount needed for a $5000 match for Organ Fund. General Treasurer reported that General Fund needs to catch up to break even by year-end.

UPCOMING Harpist Mrs. Elaine Stindt plans to come on Sunday, Dec 3rd. Congregational Christmas Party is scheduled for Dec 10th. Christmas caroling combined with chili dump afterwards is Dec 17th.

WHERE DO MISSION DOLLARS GO? Some supports training of future Church workers at Martin Luther College and Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary. Much supports new missions in our country as well as contacts in other parts of the world I can’t mention for security reasons. Church bodies want to hear the Gospel and are eager to hear.

MEDITATIONS for new quarter are available in narthex. It has a nice one-page devotion for each day of the week.
