First Reading
Isaiah 42:5-9
5  This is what God the LORD says-- he who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and all that comes out of it, who gives breath to its people, and life to those who walk on it:
6  I, the LORD, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles,
7  to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness. 
8  I am the LORD; that is my name! I will not give my glory to another or my praise to idols.
9  See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being I announce them to you."

Sermon Scripture Reading
Psalm 73:21-28
21  When my heart was grieved and my spirit embittered,
22  I was senseless and ignorant; I was a brute beast before you.
23  Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand.
24  You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory.
25  Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you.
26  My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
27  Those who are far from you will perish; you destroy all who are unfaithful to you.
28  But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign LORD my refuge; I will tell of all your deeds.

Sermon

Offering
"Call It Grace"

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.
