Prayer of the Day

Lord our strength, the battle of good and evil rages within and around us, and our ancient foe tempts us with his deceits and empty promises. Keep us steadfast in your Word and when we fall, raise us up again and restore us through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen (sung)

First Lesson

Deuteronomy 26:5-10

Moses reminds God's people of God's actions on their behalf. He especially points out their deliverance from the misery, toil, and oppression they had experienced in the land of Egypt. Thanksgiving for such blessings lead them to worship the Lord and to bring him the first-fruits of their crops.

Psalm of the Day

Psalm 91, page 100 in the front part of the hymnal

Second Lesson

Romans 10:8b-13

God's Word proclaims to us the good news of salvation and works faith in our hearts through which we are saved. This faith expresses itself through an outward confession of faith in Jesus as our Lord and Savior.

Gospel Lesson

Luke 4:1-13

Jesus began his ministry by battling with the devil. The devil confronts him with three temptations. Each time Jesus uses God's Word to defeat Satan. Jesus' victory over Satan started here and ended in complete and total victory on the cross. Thanks be to God for our Champion, the Lord Jesus Christ.
