Sunday Worship at 8:00am & 10:30am, Spiritual Growth Hour at 9:15am
Welcome to all worshipers of Jesus! God’s Word is powerful. Christ, as our prophet, brings us God’s truth. Christ’s love leads us to speak and use that truth lovingly.

Prayer of the Day
Lord God, you know that we are surrounded by many dangers and that we often stumble and fall. Strengthen us in body and mind, and bring us safely through all temptations; through Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen (sung)
Moses gives the promise of another Prophet who will be like Moses, yet greater.
Psalm of the Day
Psalm 1, page 64 in front of the hymnal
1 Corinthians 8:1-13
Our Lord wants us to be careful in our Christian freedom so that we do not offend the weak. The use of meat sacrificed to idols is something neither commanded nor forbidden by God. In matters of concern today, we remember not to wound weak consciences merely to show that something is permissible.
This lesson shows us the Prophet spoken of by Moses in today’s Old Testament reading. Jesus teaches with divine authority, and then he demonstrates it by driving our evil spirits. Jesus reveals himself and his glory.
