First Reading
Deuteronomy 11:18-21, 26-28
18  Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.
19  Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
20  Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates,
21  so that your days and the days of your children may be many in the land that the LORD swore to give your forefathers, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth.
 
26  See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse--
27  the blessing if you obey the commands of the LORD your God that I am giving you today;
28  the curse if you disobey the commands of the LORD your God and turn from the way that I command you today by following other gods, which you have not known.

Sermon Scripture Reading
Matthew 7:15-29
15  "Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.
16  By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?
17  Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.
18  A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.
19  Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
20  Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.
21  Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.
22  Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?'
23  Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'
24  Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
25  The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.
26  But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand.
27  The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash."
28  When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching,
29  because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.

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.
