Savior, When in Dust to You, #124
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.
God commands Abraham to sacrifice Isaac, his only son. Abraham is willing to surrender the son he loves, showing that he fears God.
Psalm of the Day
Psalm 6, page 66 in front of the hymnal
This is an argument from the greater to the lesser. Since God is for us, and since he did not spare his own Son to free us from the condemnation of sin, non of the troubles we have in this life can separate us from God’s love.
Christ defeats Satan at the beginning of his public ministry; this victory is a prelude to the defeat of Satan’s power on Mount Calvary. Jesus then begins preaching the good news.
