First Reading
John 12:12-19
12  The next day the great crowd that had come for the Feast heard that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem.
13  They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, "Hosanna! " "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!" "Blessed is the King of Israel!"
14  Jesus found a young donkey and sat upon it, as it is written,
15  "Do not be afraid, O Daughter of Zion; see, your king is coming, seated on a donkey's colt.
16  At first his disciples did not understand all this. Only after Jesus was glorified did they realize that these things had been written about him and that they had done these things to him.
17  Now the crowd that was with him when he called Lazarus from the tomb and raised him from the dead continued to spread the word.
18  Many people, because they had heard that he had given this miraculous sign, went out to meet him.
19  So the Pharisees said to one another, "See, this is getting us nowhere. Look how the whole world has gone after him!"

Sermon Scripture Reading
Philippians 2:5-7
5  Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:
6  Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,
7  but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.

Sermon

Offering
"This Is Amazing Grace"

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.
