First Reading
Mark 1:21-28
21  They went to Capernaum, and when the Sabbath came, Jesus went into the synagogue and began to teach.
22  The people were amazed at his teaching, because he taught them as one who had authority, not as the teachers of the law.
23  Just then a man in their synagogue who was possessed by an evil spirit cried out,
24  What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are--the Holy One of God!
25  "Be quiet! said Jesus sternly. "Come out of him!"
26  The evil spirit shook the man violently and came out of him with a shriek.
27  The people were all so amazed that they asked each other, "What is this? A new teaching--and with authority! He even gives orders to evil spirits and they obey him."
28  News about him spread quickly over the whole region of Galilee.

Sermon Scripture Reading
Psalm 111:1-10
1  Praise the LORD. I will extol the LORD with all my heart in the council of the upright and in the assembly.
2  Great are the works of the LORD; they are pondered by all who delight in them. 
3  Glorious and majestic are his deeds, and his righteousness endures forever.
4  He has caused his wonders to be remembered; the LORD is gracious and compassionate.
5  He provides food for those who fear him; he remembers his covenant forever.
6  He has shown his people the power of his works, giving them the lands of other nations.
7  The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy.
8  They are steadfast for ever and ever, done in faithfulness and uprightness.
9  He provided redemption for his people; he ordained his covenant forever-- holy and awesome is his name.
10  The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise.

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.
