First Reading
Psalm 90:1-17
1  Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations.
2  Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
3  You turn men back to dust, saying, "Return to dust, O sons of men."
4  For a thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night.
5  You sweep men away in the sleep of death; they are like the new grass of the morning--
6  though in the morning it springs up new, by evening it is dry and withered.
7  We are consumed by your anger and terrified by your indignation.
8  You have set our iniquities before you, our secret sins in the light of your presence.
9  All our days pass away under your wrath; we finish our years with a moan.
10  The length of our days is seventy years-- or eighty, if we have the strength; yet their span is but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away.
11  Who knows the power of your anger? For your wrath is as great as the fear that is due you.
12  Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
13  Relent, O LORD! How long will it be? Have compassion on your servants.
14  Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.
15  Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us, for as many years as we have seen trouble.
16  May your deeds be shown to your servants, your splendor to their children.
17  May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us-- yes, establish the work of our hands.

Sermon Scripture Reading
1 Thessalonians 5:1-11
1  Now, brothers, about times and dates we do not need to write to you,
2  for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.
3  While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.
4  But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.
5  You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.
6  So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be alert and self-controlled.
7  For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night.
8  But since we belong to the day, let us be self-controlled, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet.
9  For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.
10  He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him.
11  Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.



In Whom Do We Believe? Explanation to The Second Article of The Apostles Creed
I believe that Jesus Christ, true God, begotten of the Father from eternity, and also true man, born of the Virgin Mary, is my Lord, who has redeemed me, a lost and condemned person, purchased and won me from all sins, from death, and from the power of the devil; not with gold or silver, but with his holy, precious blood and with his innocent suffering and death, that I may be his own and live under him in his kingdom and serve him in everlasting righteousness, innocence, and blessedness, just as he is risen from the dead, lives and reigns to all eternity.  This is most certainly true.

Prayers Of The Day

The Lords Prayer
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever.  Amen.
