THE WORD

FIRST LESSON: Deuteronomy 5:12-15

It is not mere idleness that is enjoined in the third commandment. The ultimate purpose of the Sabbath is the contemplation of God’s mighty works and acts. He made us and not we ourselves; He saved us by His mighty and outstretched arm.

PSALM OF THE DAY: Psalm 126 on page 113

There is no better response to His saving acts than to acknowledge them and worship Him for them in the company of the saints.

SECOND LESSON: 2 Corinthians 4:5-12

If the children of Israel had reason to come together and hear of the mighty acts of God, how much more reason we have to do the same. For we hear of Christ, the Savior from the slavery to sin and death. In hearing the effective word of the gospel, we receive the light from God that preserves us in this life and will raise us up on the last day to worship Him, our Savior for all eternity.

GOSPEL: Mark 2:23-28

The Pharisees missed all of the joy that God wanted to give them on the Sabbath. They did not really listen to the law. They were despising God’s Word.

THE SERMON: Psalm 126

THEME: Rejoice in the Lord Loudly

ATTENDANCE AT THE LORD’S HOUSE 50
