Sermon Title: "Thank God I'm not a rich man!"
Amos 5:6-7, 10-15 Seek good and not evil, that you may live; and so the Lord, the God of hosts, will be with you.
Psalm 90:12-17 So teach us to count our days that we may gain a wise heart.
Hebrews 4:12-16 Indeed the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword....
Mark 10:17-31 For mortals it is impossible, but not for God; for God all things are possible.
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: We are lost, for God knows the number of our transgressions,
and how great are our sins. (pause for self-examination)
P: Lord God...
C: what do we lack in being righteous?
We kept the commandments... ...mostly.
We are good Christians... ...we tell everybody that!
And we follow you, see we are here today... ...this morning.
Look at us, we are not even like those rich people.
When is it, tell us again, when will we be rewarded?
Save us, save us, save us Lord from our sins. (Pause for reflection)
P: God who demands righteousness, who divides soul from spirit, who judges all, sends for our sake a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God. For Christ's sake our sins are forgiven. We receive mercy and grace finds us. Now through the Holy Spirit, let us make our confession honest and live that grace and mercy throughout our whole lives. In the name 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!
