February 7, 2021 - 5th Sunday after the Epiphany

Today’s Worship Focus Jesus’ glory is revealed in weakness. Today’s Scripture (First Lesson, Second Lesson, Gospel, Psalm) reveals Jesus’ glory in weakness. Job was so physically weak, yet he prayed with a trusting heart to God, revealing God’s glory by the fact that he prayed (First Lesson). The Apostle Paul didn’t have one sermon for his many types of listeners, but he preached the gospel to many types with their own weaknesses, revealing Jesus’...

TODAY'S WORSHIP FOCUS: Forsake everything to follow God. Someone may say, "Really? That seems counterintuitive and unthinkable. It's like putting all your eggs in one basket!" Yet, the Scripture readings today say that Jesus' disciples left their vocations to follow him (Gospel), that Jonah left his vocation to preach against the great city of Nineveh (First Lesson), and that God wants his people to live for him instead of for this world which is passing away (Second...

Let me hear your Word, believe that you are the Son of God and then follow your every command. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen. OPENING...

January 10, 2021 ~ The Baptism of our Lord

Today's Worship Focus: Get to know Jesus in baptism. During the Epiphany season, we get to know Jesus. This Sunday we get to know him in his baptism and ours.

All of this happens in baptism.  OPENING HYMN ~ 577 Rise, O Light of Gentile Nations PRAYER OF THE DAY: Father in heaven, at the...

January 3, 2021 ~ Epiphany

The Epiphany of Our Lord Today is dedicated as the Epiphany of our Lord as the closest Sunday to Epiphany (January 6th). The season of Epiphany is several weeks long. This Epiphany season continues the Christmas thought of Jesus revealing himself as God and Savior. The conundrum though is that Jesus hides his deity so that his glory remains a mystery. You will see that conundrum in the Bible readings for this Epiphany season. Keep in mind though that Jesus’ glory is revealed to those...
