New Testament Reading 2 Corinthians 4:3-6

3 And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Old Testament Reading Exodus 33:7-23

 

Sermon

 

Confession of Faith Heidelberg Catechism 54

Leader: What do you believe concerning the holy, catholic church?

 

All: I believe that the Son of God, out of the whole human race,  from the beginning of the world to its end,  gathers, defends, and preserves for himself, by his Spirit and Word, in the unity of the true faith, a church chosen to everlasting life. And I believe that I am and forever shall remain a living member of it.

Further Reflection

*Take some time to read the words and sing the songs before Sunday and rejoice in the Lord. This will help you to engage in the singing, especially if the songs are unfamilar.

*Sin has separated us from God, but Jesus has done away with our sin by his death and resurrection and therefore we can have a full, intimate relationship with God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Do you come to the worship service as someone who is separated from God?
