First Reading
Matthew 22:15-22
15  Then the Pharisees went out and laid plans to trap him in his words.
16  They sent their disciples to him along with the Herodians. "Teacher," they said, "we know you are a man of integrity and that you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. You aren't swayed by men, because you pay no attention to who they are.
17  Tell us then, what is your opinion? Is it right to pay taxes to Caesar or not?"
18  But Jesus, knowing their evil intent, said, "You hypocrites, why are you trying to trap me?
19  Show me the coin used for paying the tax." They brought him a denarius,
20  and he asked them, "Whose portrait is this? And whose inscription?"
21  "Caesar's,” they replied. Then he said to them, "Give to Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what is God's."
22  When they heard this, they were amazed. So they left him and went away.

Children’s Message

Little Worship

Sermon Scripture Reading
Philippians 3:17-21
17  Join with others in following my example, brothers, and take note of those who live according to the pattern we gave you.
18  For, as I have often told you before and now say again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ.
19  Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is on earthly things.
20  But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ,
21  who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.

Sermon

Offering
"Immortal, Invisible”

In Whom Do We Believe? Explanation to The Third Article of The Apostles’ Creed
I believe that I cannot by my own reason or strength believe in Jesus Christ, my Lord, or come to him; but the Holy Spirit has called me by the Gospel, enlightened me with his gifts, sanctified and kept me in the true faith.  In the same way he calls, gathers, enlightens, and sanctifies the whole Christian church on earth, and keeps it with Jesus Christ in the one true faith.  In this Christian church he daily and richly forgives all my sins and the sins of all believers.  On the Last Day, he will raise me and all the dead, and give eternal life to me and all believers in Christ.  This is most certainly true.

Prayers Of The Day

The Lord’s 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.
