THE WORD

FIRST LESSON: Ezekiel 17:22-24

God Himself renews his church, sustains her, strengthens her and gives her fruit. Her ultimate goal and glory is the glory of her Lord, who keeps His promise that all may know that He alone is the Savior.

PSALM OF THE DAY: Psalm 92 on page 101

We are the plantings of the Lord in His household, the Church. Since that is altogether His doing and not the result of our merit or decision, we give Him thanks, worship and adore Him for His grace.

SECOND LESSON: 2 Corinthians 5:1-10

Mortality is our inheritance as the result of sin. But we still are confident and courageous. For God Himself has come with His Spirit to live in us by His Word. God saved us for immortality with Him.

GOSPEL: Mark 4:26-34

How lowly is the sowing of seed in the dirt; how wondrous the result! How insignificant, almost invisible, the mustard seed; how magnificent its growth! The lowly Word is preached and life comes to dead soil of the human heart. The lowly Word grows into the magnificent planting of the Lord and performs its function to the glory of God in the world.

THE SERMON: 1 Peter 3:21

THEME: What Just Happened?
