    our life” (Luke 1:74-75).

    Confession and Absolution

    P: W e have come into the presence of God, who created us to

    love and serve Him as His dear children. But we have

    disobeyed Him and deserve only His wrath and punishment.

    Therefore let us confess our sins to Him and plead for His


    C: Merciful Father in heaven, I am altogether sinful from birth.

    In countless ways I have sinned against You and do not

    deserve to be called Your child. But trusting in Jesus, my

    Savior, I pray: Have mercy on me according to Your unfailing

    love. Cleanse me from my sin and take away my guilt.

    P: God, our heavenly Father, has forgiven all your sins. By the

    perfect life and innocent death of our Lord Jesus Christ, He has

    removed your guilt forever. You are His own dear child. May

  • First Reading: Romans 1:16-25 (ESV)

    16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for

    salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the

    Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith

    for faith, as it is written, "The righteous shall live by faith." 18 For

    the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness

    and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness

    suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to

    them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For his invisible

    attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been

    clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things

    that have been made. So they are without excuse. 21 For although

    they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to

    him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts

    were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and

    exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling

    mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. 24 Therefore God

    gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the

    dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they

    exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served

    the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

    Responsive Reading: Psalm 34:1-9 (NKJV)

    P: I will bless the LORD at all times;

    C: His praise shall continually be in my mouth.

    P: My soul shall make its boast in the LORD;

    C: The humble shall hear of it and be glad.

    P: Oh, magnify the LORD with me,

    C: And let us exalt His name together.

    P: I sought the LORD, and He heard me,

    C: And delivered me from all my fears.

    P: This poor man cried out, and the LORD heard him,

    C: And saved him out of all his troubles.


    P: They looked to Him and were radiant,

    C: And their faces were not ashamed.

    P: The angel of the LORD encamps all around those who fear


    C: And delivers them.

    P: Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good;

    C: Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!

    P: Oh, fear the LORD, you His saints!

    C: There is no want to those who fear Him.

    Second Reading: Matthew 10:26-39 (NKJV)

    26 "Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that

    will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known. 27

    Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear

    in the ear, preach on the housetops. 28 And do not fear those who

    kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able

    to destroy both soul and body in hell. 29 Are not two sparrows sold

    for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart

    from your Father’s will. 30 But the very hairs of your head are all

    numbered. 31 Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than

    many sparrows. 32 Therefore whoever confesses Me before men,

    him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. 33 But

    whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My

    Father who is in heaven. 34 Do not think that I came to bring peace

    on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. 35 For I have

    come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her

    mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; 36 and

    ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’ 37 He who

    loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he

    who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. 38

    And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not

    worthy of Me. 39 He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses

    his life for My sake will find it.”


  • P: Blessed are they who hear the word of God and keep it.

    The Apostles’ Creed

    I believe in God the Father Almighty,

    Maker of heaven and earth.

    And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord;

    Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost,

    Born of the Virgin Mary;

    Suffered under Pontius Pilate,

    Was crucified, dead, and buried;

    He descended into hell;

    The third day He rose again from the dead;

    He ascended into heaven

    And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty;

    From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

    I believe in the Holy Ghost;

    The holy Christian Church, the communion of Saints;

    The forgiveness of sins;

    The resurrection of the body;

    And the life everlasting. Amen.

  • Sermon Text: Psalm 100 (NKJV)

    1 A Psalm of Thanksgiving. Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you

    lands! 2 Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before His presence

    with singing. 3 Know that the LORD, He is God; It is He who has

    made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of

    His pasture. 4 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His

    courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. 5 For the

    LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all
