ORDER OF SERVICE: the Common Service, p 15ff



FIRST LESSON: Jeremiah 31:31-34

The Lord promises a new covenant for His people, a covenant of the full and free forgiveness of sins. Through this covenant the Lord would set apart a holy people who would know Him fully “from the least of them to the greatest.”

PSALM OF THE DAY: Psalm 143 on page 118

We make this Psalm our own as we, like David, confess our sins, acknowledge our helplessness, and turn in trust to God.

SECOND LESSON: Hebrews 5:7-9

Jesus was obedient to God’s law and His Father’s will in order to win salvation for us. He became our eternal High Priest so that He could give God full payment for our sins.

GOSPEL: John 12:20-33

Jesus’ road to glory was the road to the cross. Through His suffering, death and resurrection, Jesus draws all people to Himself.
