First Reading
Psalm 95:1-9
1  Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
2  Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.
3  For the LORD is the great God, the great King above all gods.
4  In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him.
5  The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.
6  Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the LORD our Maker;
7  for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care. Today, if you hear his voice,
8  do not harden your hearts as you did at Meribah, as you did that day at Massah in the desert,
9  where your fathers tested and tried me, though they had seen what I did.

Little Worship

Sermon Scripture Reading
Matthew 8:1-13
1  When he came down from the mountainside, large crowds followed him.
2  A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said, "Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean."
3  Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. "I am willing," he said. "Be clean!" Immediately he was cured of his leprosy.
4  Then Jesus said to him, "See that you don't tell anyone. But go, show yourself to the priest and offer the gift Moses commanded, as a testimony to them."
5  When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help.
6  "Lord, he said, "my servant lies at home paralyzed and in terrible suffering."
7  Jesus said to him, "I will go and heal him."
8  The centurion replied, "Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed.
9  For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, 'Go,' and he goes; and that one, 'Come,' and he comes. I say to my servant, 'Do this,' and he does it."
10  When Jesus heard this, he was astonished and said to those following him, "I tell you the truth, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith.
11  I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.
12  But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth."
13  Then Jesus said to the centurion, "Go! It will be done just as you believed it would." And his servant was healed at that very hour.

Sermon

Offering
"My Help Comes From The Lord"

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 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.
