ORDER OF SERVICE: Service of the Word p 38ff



FIRST LESSON: Genesis 3:8-15

Death, that is, a damning separation from God, is what Satan brings into the world, when man through his own fault believes him instead of the kind and generous Creator. But what is God’s response to the total wickedness of man? A promise, The Promise! Only the Promised Seed saves; only the promise itself restores the fallen from unbelief and death to faith and life. And the cause of it all? Grace, pure grace, nothing but grace.

PSALM FOR THE DAY: Psalm 51a on page 46(s)

In confession we recognize that our need is absolute, our merit nonexistent, and our only sure salvation the promise of grace in the Promised Seed.

SECOND LESSON: 2 Corinthians 4:13-18

Even after the mighty Word of grace has created faith, we still live in the world and with a sinful flesh; both bear witness to the destructive power of Satan and sin. Only God’s Word can give us the support and comfort we need.

GOSPEL: Mark 3:20-35

Jesus Christ alone is Savior. His own earthly family had misgivings about Him. The religious leaders actively opposed Him. He stayed to save. He continues with His Word to draw a family to Himself.

THE SERMON: John 8:31-32

THEME: Continuing in God’s Word
