First Reading
Matthew 20:20 - 28
20  Then the mother of Zebedee's sons came to Jesus with her sons and, kneeling down, asked a favor of him.
21  What is it you want? he asked. She said, "Grant that one of these two sons of mine may sit at your right and the other at your left in your kingdom."
22  You don't know what you are asking, Jesus said to them. "Can you drink the cup I am going to drink?" "We can," they answered.
23  Jesus said to them, "You will indeed drink from my cup, but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared by my Father."
24  When the ten heard about this, they were indignant with the two brothers.
25  Jesus called them together and said, "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them.
26  Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant,
27  and whoever wants to be first must be your slave--
28  just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."

Sermon Scripture Reading
2 Corinthians 4:5 - 12
5  For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake. 
6  For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.
7  But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.
8  We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair;
9  persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
10  We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.
11  For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus' sake, so that his life may be revealed in our mortal body.
12  So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.

Sermon

Offering
"Son Of God"

In Whom Do We Believe? The Apostles' Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.  And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried.  He descended into hell.  The third day he rose again from the dead.  He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty.  From thence he will come to judge the living and the dead.  I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.  Amen.

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.
