PRAYER OF THE DAY
 

      Almighty God and Father, dwelling in majesty and mystery, filling and renewing all creation by your eternal Spirit, and manifesting your saving grace through our Lord Jesus Christ: in mercy cleanse our hearts and lips that, free from doubt and fear, we may ever worship you, one true immortal God, with your Son and the Holy Spirit, living and reigning, now and forever.

(sung) Amen.

 


 

FIRST LESSON

Isaiah 6:1-8 (printed on back of worship folder)

The God of our salvation, who has revealed himself to us in his incarnate Son, Jesus Christ, is triune—three divine Persons in one God. This is the God Isaiah saw in his vision. The Lord is the holy God. He does not tolerate sin in his presence. At the same time, he is the merciful God, who shows his holiness by providing atonement for sin and removing the sinners guilt. Through faith in Christ, believers stand before God cleansed of sin and holy in his sight.
 

PSALM OF THE DAY

Psalm 150 (also found on page 62 of the blue supplement)

 


 

 

SECOND LESSON

Romans 8:14-17 (printed on back of worship folder)

The love called for in the law is not, indeed by definition cannot be, slavishly rendered. For it is a love produced by God himself through the Word of the Spirit who has made us children of the Father and thus heirs with the Son of all the glory he won for us by his suffering.


 

GOSPEL

John 3:1-17 (printed on back of worship folder)

Not sinful flesh, not human reason, but our God alone with his mighty and glorious gospel in the Word and sacrament can bring us to faith and to the love for God that flows from faith. For who could believe it of himself that God loves us enough to give his Son? Brought by the miracle of the gospel to believe it, we love Father, Son, and Holy Spirit who saved us from eternal judgment for eternal blessedness.
