THE WORD

FIRST LESSON: Job 7:1-7

Life is hard, and it can easily seem futile. Our hope is the facts that God does remember us.

PSALM OF THE DAY: Psalm 32 on page 78

This great penitential song comes directly out of David’s life experience. He provides us with powerful images of both sin and forgiveness.

SECOND LESSON: 1 Corinthians 9:16-23

Paul could not boast about being an apostle; he had not volunteered. God called him and made him an obedient servant to build the Church of God.

GOSPEL: Mark 1:29-39

Shortly after His baptism, Jesus returns to Galilee. He heals Peter’s mother-in-law, as well as the sick and demon-possessed. He makes a preaching tour throughout the region. Jesus shows that the kingdom of God has come in might and mercy.

THE SERMON: Job 7:1-7

THEME: When You Feel Like Asking, “Why Me?

Attendance at the Lord’s House 45
