Remembering Whose We Are

All: Amen.

Opening Prayer

Confession of Sin
Leader: O almighty God, merciful Father,

All: I, a poor, miserable sinner, confess unto You all my sins and iniquities with which I have ever offended You and justly deserved Your temporal and eternal punishment. But I am heartily sorry for them and sincerely repent of them, and I pray You of Your boundless mercy and for the sake of the holy, innocent, bitter sufferings and death of Your beloved Son, Jesus Christ, to be gracious and merciful to me, a poor, sinful being.

Absolution
Leader: Upon this your confession, I by virtue of my office as a called and ordained servant of the Word, announce the grace of God unto all of you, and in the stead and by the command of my Lord Jesus Christ I forgive you all your sins in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen.

Sermon Scripture Reading
1 Corinthians 3:10-23
10  By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as an expert builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should be careful how he builds.
11  For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.
12  If any man builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw,
13  his work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each man's work.
14  If what he has built survives, he will receive his reward.
15  If it is burned up, he will suffer loss; he himself will be saved, but only as one escaping through the flames.
16  Don't you know that you yourselves are God's temple and that God's Spirit lives in you?
17  If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him; for God's temple is sacred, and you are that temple.
18  Do not deceive yourselves. If any one of you thinks he is wise by the standards of this age, he should become a "fool" so that he may become wise.
19  For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God's sight. As it is written: "He catches the wise in their craftiness";
20  and again, "The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile."
21  So then, no more boasting about men! All things are yours,
22  whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future--all are yours,
23  and you are of Christ, and Christ is of God.

Sermon

Offering
"Everyday"

In Whom Do We Believe? Explanation 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 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.

Celebrating the Lord's Supper
