Sunday Title: Disciple Sunday
Sermon Title: Who Are You? “If God is my God, who am I?” “Fan or Disciple”
Isaiah 50:4–9a The Lord God has given me the tongue of a teacher, that I may know how to sustain the weary with a word.
Psalm 31:9–16 But as for me, I have trusted in you, O Lord.
I have said, "You are my God.
Philippians 2:5–11 Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus….
Luke 19:28-40 …the whole multitude of the disciples began to praise God joyfully with a loud voice for all the deeds of power that they had seen, saying,
“Blessed is the king
who comes in the name of the Lord!
Peace in heaven,
and glory in the highest heaven!”
All may make the sign of the cross in remembrance of baptism
as the presiding minister begins:
P: In the Name of the Father, and the Son, + and the Holy Spirit.
P: God is preparing to great things this week
let us prepare our selves for God’s grace.
(pause for self-examination)
P: Have mercy on us, O Lord.
C: We count ourselves as your disciples
without an open willingness to follow you.
We may have a personal devotion in private places,
or a quiet response among a croud of believers;
but when would we shout our blessing on your work,
with so many others to listen.
We wait until the most testing of times
to place ourselves in your hands.
And do not seek your instruction morning by morning.
Forgive the sins we name.
Save us from the sins we hide.
(Pause for reflection)
P: The Lord God helps us turn form rebuliousness to faithfuness, even to obedience; that we should not claim a righteousness of our own but that we might have the same mind as Jesus Christ. (For Christ's sake our sins are forgiven). In Christ’s faithfuness we might place our trust and declair that here is our our God. To the glory of the Father, and the Son, + and the Holy Spirit.
C: Amen. -wjw
P: The peace of the Lord be with you always!
C: And also with you!
