The Ringing of the Bells and The Welcome

Opening Hymn: I Know That My Redeemer Lives (461)

I know that my Redeemer lives;

What comfort this sweet sentence gives!

He lives, He lives, who once was dead;

He lives, my ever-living head.

 

He lives to bless me with His love;

He lives to plead for me above;

He lives my hungry soul to feed;

He lives to help in time of need.

 

He lives to grant me rich supply;

He lives to guide me with His eye;

He lives to comfort me when faint;

He lives to hear my soul's complaint.

 

He lives to silence all my fears;

He lives to wipe away my tears;

He lives to calm my troubled heart;

He lives all blessings to impart.

 

He lives, all glory to His name!

He lives, my Jesus, still the same;

Oh, the sweet joy this sentence gives;

I know that my Redeemer lives!

(Silent Prayer) (Momento de Oración Personal)

 

Pastor:            If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

People:          But if we confess our sins, God, who is faithful and just, will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Pastor:            Let us then confess our sins to God our Father:

People:          Most merciful God, we confess that we are by nature sinful and unclean. We have sinned against You in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done and by what we have left undone. We have not loved You with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. For the sake of Your Son, Jesus Christ, have mercy on us. Forgive us, renew us, and lead us, so that we may delight in Your will and walk in Your ways to the glory of Your holy name. Amen.

Pastor:            Almighty God in His mercy has given His Son to die for you and for His sake forgives you all your sins. As a called and ordained servant of Christ, and by His authority, I therefore forgive you all your sins in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

People:          Amen.

           

The Prayer of the Day

God our Provider, we are hungry, and long to be fed. Gather us into your love, and fill us with Your peace, through Jesus Christ, the true bread of heaven. Amen.

 

Scripture Readings (After each reading:)

Reader:           This is the Word of the Lord.

People:           Thanks be to God.

 

Isaiah 55:1-5

1 The Lord says, “Come, everyone who is thirsty— here is water! Come, you that have no money— buy grain and eat! Come! Buy wine and milk— it will cost you nothing! 2 Why spend money on what does not satisfy? Why spend your wages and still be hungry? Listen to me and do what I say, and you will enjoy the best food of all. “Listen now, my people, and come to me; come to me, and you will have life! I will make a lasting covenant with you and give you the blessings I promised to David. 4 I made him a leader and commander of nations, and through him I showed them my power. 5 Now you will summon foreign nations; at one time they did not know you, but now they will come running to join you! I, the Lord your God, the holy God of Israel, will make all this happen; I will give you honor and glory.”

 

Romans 9:1-5

1 I am speaking the truth; I belong to Christ and I do not lie. My conscience, ruled by the Holy Spirit, also assures me that I am not lying 2when I say how great is my sorrow, how endless the pain in my heart 3for my people, my own flesh and blood! For their sake I could wish that I myself were under God’s curse and separated from Christ. 4 They are God’s people; he made them his children and revealed his glory to them; he made his covenants with them and gave them the Law; they have the true worship; they have received God’s promises; 5they are descended from the famous Hebrew ancestors; and Christ, as a human being, belongs to their race. May God, who rules over all, be praised for ever! Amen.

 

Matthew 14:13-21

13 When Jesus heard the news about John, he left there in a boat and went to a lonely place by himself. The people heard about it, so they left their towns and followed him by land. 14Jesus got out of the boat, and when he saw the large crowd, his heart was filled with pity for them, and he healed those who were ill. 15 That evening his disciples came to him and said, “It is already very late, and this is a lonely place. Send the people away and let them go to the villages to buy food for themselves.” 16 “They don’t have to leave,” answered Jesus. “You yourselves give them something to eat!” 17 “All we have here are five loaves and two fish,” they replied. 18 “Then bring them here to me,” Jesus said. 19He ordered the people to sit down on the grass; then he took the five loaves and the two fish, looked up to heaven, and gave thanks to God. He broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. 20Everyone ate and had enough. Then the disciples took up twelve baskets full of what was left over. 21The number of men who ate was about 5,000, not counting the women and children.

 

13 Cuando Jesús recibió la noticia, se fue de allí él solo, en una barca, a un lugar apartado. Pero la gente lo supo y salió de los pueblos para seguirlo por tierra. 14 Al bajar Jesús de la barca, vio la multitud; sintió compasión de ellos y sanó a los enfermos que llevaban. 15 Como ya se hacía de noche, los discípulos se le acercaron y le dijeron: “Ya es tarde, y este es un lugar solitario. Despide a la gente, para que vayan a las aldeas y se compren comida.” 16 Jesús les contestó: “No es necesario que se vayan; denles ustedes de comer.” 17 Ellos respondieron: “No tenemos aquí más que cinco panes y dos pescados.” 18 Jesús les dijo: “Tráiganmelos aquí.” 19Entonces mandó a la multitud que se sentara sobre la hierba. Luego tomó en sus manos los cinco panes y los dos pescados y, mirando al cielo, pronunció la bendición y partió los panes, los dio a los discípulos y ellos los repartieron entre la gente. 20 Todos comieron hasta quedar satisfechos; recogieron los pedazos sobrantes, y con ellos llenaron doce canastas. 21 Los que comieron fueron unos cinco mil hombres, sin contar las mujeres y los niños.

 

The Apostle’s Creed

    I believe in God, the Father Almighty maker of heaven and earth.

    And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell.  The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From thence he will come to judge the living and the dead.

    I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of  the body, and the life everlasting.  Amen.

 

Sermon Hymn: What is This Bread (629)

What is this bread? Christ's body risen from the dead:

This bread we break, This life we take,

Was crushed to pay for our release.

Oh, taste and see The Lord is peace.

What is this wine? The blood of Jesus shed for mine;

The cup of grace, Brings His embrace

Of life and love until I sing!

Oh, taste and see, The Lord is King

 

So who am I, That I should live and He should and He should die

Under the rod, My God, my God,

Why have You not forsaken me?

Oh, taste and see, The Lord is free.

 

Yet is God here? Oh, yes! By Word and promise clear.

In mouth and soul, He makes us whole

Christ, truly present in this meal.

Oh, taste and see, The Lord is real.

 

Is this for me? I am forgiven and set free!

I do believe That I receive,

His very body and His blood.

Oh, taste and see, The Lord is good.

 

Sermon

The Prayers and 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

Pastor:             Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

People:  It is right to give Him thanks and praise.       

Pastor:             It is indeed right, our duty and our joy, that we should always sing of your glory, holy Father, almighty and eternal God, through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord. For you are the hope of the nations, the builder of the city that is to come. Your love made visible in Jesus Christ brings home the lost, restores the sinner and gives dignity to the despised. In his face your light shines out, flooding lives with goodness and truth, and making us all, a divided and broken humanity, forever one in your kingdom.

People:          Amen.

 

Prayer of Thanksgiving

Blessed are You, Lord of heaven and earth, for You have had mercy on those whom You created and sent Your only-begotten Son into our flesh to bear our sin and be our Savior. With repentant joy, we receive the salvation accomplished for us by the all-availing sacrifice of His body and His blood on the cross. Gathered in the name and the remembrance of Jesus, we beg You, O Lord, to forgive, renew, and strengthen us with Your Word and Spirit. Grant us to faithfully eat His body and drink His blood as He bids us to in His own testament. Gather us together from the ends of the earth to celebrate, with all the faithful, the marriage feast of the Lamb in His kingdom, which has no end. Receive our prayers; deliver and preserve us. To You alone be all glory, honor, and worship, now and forever. Amen.

Sent forth by God’s blessing, Our true faith confessing,

The people of God from His dwelling take leave.

The supper is ended, Oh, now be extended

The fruits of this service in all who believe.

The seed of His teaching, Receptive souls reaching,

Shall blossom in action for God and for all.

His grace did invite us,His love shall unite us

To work for God’s kingdom and answer His call.

 

With praise and thanksgiving, To God ever living,

The tasks of our everyday life we will face.

Our faith ever sharing, In love ever caring,

Embracing His children of each tribe and race.

With Your feast You feed us, With Your light now lead us;

Unite us as one in this life that we share.

Then may all the living, With praise and thanks giving

Give honor to Christ and His name that we bear.

Scripture Readings (After each reading:)

Reader:           This is the Word of the Lord.

People:           Thanks be to God.

 

Deuteronomy 7:6-9

6 You belong to the Lord your God. From all the peoples on earth he chose you to be his own special people. 7 The Lord did not love you and choose you because you outnumbered other peoples; you were the smallest nation on earth. 8 But the Lord loved you and wanted to keep the promise that he made to your ancestors. That is why he saved you by his great might and set you free from slavery to the king of Egypt. 9 Remember that the Lord your God is the only God and that he is faithful. He will keep his covenant and show his constant love to a thousand generations of those who love him and obey his commands.

 

Romans 8:28-39

 

28 We know that in all things God works for good with those who love him, those whom he has called according to his purpose. 29 Those whom God had already chosen he also set apart to become like his Son, so that the Son would be the eldest brother in a large family. 30 And so those whom God set apart, he called; and those he called, he put right with himself, and he shared his glory with them. 31 In view of all this, what can we say? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 Certainly not God, who did not even keep back his own Son, but offered him for us all! He gave us his Son—will he not also freely give us all things? 33 Who will accuse God’s chosen people? God himself declares them not guilty! 34 Who, then, will condemn them? Not Christ Jesus, who died, or rather, who was raised to life and is at the right-hand side of God, pleading with him for us! 35 Who, then, can separate us from the love of Christ? Can trouble do it, or hardship or persecution or hunger or poverty or danger or death? 36 As the scripture says, “For your sake we are in danger of death at all times; we are treated like sheep that are going to be slaughtered.” 37 No, in all these things we have complete victory through him who loved us! 38 For I am certain that nothing can separate us from his love: neither death nor life, neither angels nor other heavenly rulers or powers, neither the present nor the future, 39 neither the world above nor the world below—there is nothing in all creation that will ever be able to separate us from the love of God which is ours through Christ Jesus our Lord.

 

Matthew 13:44-52

44 “The Kingdom of heaven is like this. A man happens to find a treasure hidden in a field. He covers it up again, and is so happy that he goes and sells everything he has, and then goes back and buys that field.  45 Also, the Kingdom of heaven is like this. A man is looking for fine pearls, 46and when he finds one that is unusually fine, he goes and sells everything he has, and buys that pearl.  47 Also, the Kingdom of heaven is like this. Some fishermen throw their net out in the lake and catch all kinds of fish. 48When the net is full, they pull it to shore and sit down to divide the fish: the good ones go into their buckets, the worthless ones are thrown away. 49It will be like this at the end of the age: the angels will go out and gather up the evil people from among the good 50and will throw them into the fiery furnace, where they will cry and grind their teeth.”  51 “Do you understand these things?” Jesus asked them.  “Yes,” they answered.  52 So he replied, “This means, then, that every teacher of the Law who becomes a disciple in the Kingdom of heaven is like the oner of a house who takes new and old things out of his storeroom.”

 

 

 

44“El reino de los cielos es como un tesoro escondido en un terreno. Un hombre encuentra el tesoro, y lo vuelve a esconder allí mismo; lleno de alegría, va y vende todo lo que tiene, y compra ese terreno.  45“Sucede también con el reino de los cielos como con un comerciante que andaba buscando perlas finas; 46cuando encontró una de mucho valor, fue y vendió todo lo que tenía, y compró esa perla.  47“Sucede también con el reino de los cielos como con la red que se echa al mar y recoge toda clase de pescado. 48Cuando la red se llena, los pescadores la sacan a la playa, donde se sientan a escoger el pescado; guardan el bueno en canastas y tiran el malo. 49Así también sucederá al fin del mundo: saldrán los ángeles para separar a los malos de los buenos, 50y echarán a los malos en el horno de fuego. Entonces vendrán el llanto y la desesperación.”  51Jesús preguntó: “¿Entienden ustedes todo esto?”  “Sí”, contestaron ellos. 52Entonces Jesús les dijo: ”Cuando un maestro de la ley se instruye acerca del reino de los cielos, se parece al dueño de una casa, que de lo que tiene guardado sabe sacar cosas nuevas y cosas viejas.”

 

The Apostle’s Creed

    I believe in God, the Father Almighty maker of heaven and earth.

    And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried.

Sermon Hymn: Rise Shine You People (825)

Rise, shine, you people! Christ the Lord has entered

Our human story; God in him is centered.

He comes to us, by death and sin surrounded with grace unbounded.

 

See how he sends the pow’rs of evil reeling;

He brings us freedom, light and life and healing.

All men and women, who by guilt are driven, now are forgiven.

 

 

Come, celebrate; your banners high unfurling,

Your songs and prayers against the darkness hurling.

To all the world go out and tell the story of Jesus’ glory.

 

Tell how the Father sent the Son to save us.

Tell of the Song, who life and freedom gave us.

Tell how the Spirit calls from ev’ry nation God’s new creation.

The Ringing of the Bells and The Welcome

Opening Hymn: My Hope Is Built On Nothing Less (575)

My hope is built on nothing less

Than Jesus' blood and righteousness;

No merit of my own I claim,

But wholly lean on Jesus' name.

On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;

All other ground is sinking sand.

When darkness veils His lovely face,

I rest on His unchanging grace;

In ev'ry high and stormy gale,

My anchor holds within the veil.

On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;

All other ground is sinking sand.

His oath, His covenant and blood

Support me in the raging flood;

When ev'ry earthly prop gives way,

He then is all my hope and stay.

On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;

All other ground is sinking sand.

When He shall come with trumpet sound,

Oh, may I then in Him be found,

Clothed in His righteousness alone,

Redeemed to stand before His throne!

On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;

All other ground is sinking sand.

Let him declare and lay out before me what has happened since I established my ancient people, and what is yet to come-- yes, let him foretell what will come.  Do not tremble, do not be afraid. Did I not proclaim this and foretell it long ago? You are my witnesses. Is there any God besides me? No, there is no other Rock; I know not one."

 

Romans 8:18-27

18 I consider that what we suffer at this present time cannot be compared at all with the glory that is going to be revealed to us. 19All of creation waits with eager longing for God to reveal his children. 20 For creation was condemned to frustration, not by its own choice but by the will of God, yet with the hope 21that creation itself would one day be set free from its slavery to decay and would share the glorious freedom of the children of God. 22For we know that up to the present time all of creation groans with pain, like the pain of childbirth. But it is not just creation alone which groans; we who have the Spirit as the first of God’s gifts also groan within ourselves, as we wait for God to make us his children and set our whole being free. 24For it was by hope that we were saved; but if we see what we hope for, then it is not really hope. For which of us hopes for something we see? 25But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience. 26 In the same way the Spirit also comes to help us, weak as we are. For we do not know how we ought to pray; the Spirit himself pleads with God for us in groans that words cannot express. 27And God, who sees into our hearts, knows what the thought of the Spirit is; because the Spirit pleads with God on behalf of his people and in accordance with his will.

 

Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43

24 Jesus told them another parable: “The Kingdom of heaven is like this. A man sowed good seed in his field. 25One night, when everyone was asleep, an enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away. 26When the plants grew and the heads of grain began to form, then the weeds showed up. 27The man’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, it was good seed you sowed in your field; where did the weeds come from?’ 28‘It was some enemy who did this,’ he answered. ‘Do you want us to go and pull up the weeds?’ they asked him. 29‘No,’ he answered, ‘because as you gather the weeds you might pull up some of the wheat along with them. 30Let the wheat and the weeds both grow together until harvest. Then I will tell the harvest workers to pull up the weeds first, tie them in bundles and burn them, and then to gather in the wheat and put it in my barn.’ ”....  36 When Jesus had left the crowd and gone indoors, his disciples came to him and said, “Tell us what the parable about the weeds in the field means.”  37 Jesus answered, “The man who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man; 38the field is the world; the good seed is the people who belong to the Kingdom; the weeds are the people who belong to the Evil One; 39and the enemy who sowed the weeds is the Devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvest workers are angels. 40Just as the weeds are gathered up and burned in the fire, so the same thing will happen at the end of the age: 41the Son of Man will send out his angels to gather up out of his Kingdom all those who cause people to sin and all others who do evil things, 42and they will throw them into the fiery furnace, where they will cry and grind their teeth. 43Then God’s people will shine like the sun in their Father’s Kingdom. Listen, then, if you have ears!

 

24Jesús les contó esta otra parábola: “Sucede con el reino de los cielos como con un hombre que sembró buena semilla en su campo; 25pero cuando todos estaban durmiendo, llegó un enemigo, sembró mala hierba entre el trigo y se fue. 26Cuando el trigo creció y se formó la espiga, apareció también la mala hierba. 27Entonces los trabajadores fueron a decirle al dueño: ‘Señor, si la semilla que sembró usted en el campo era buena, ¿de dónde ha salido la mala hierba?’ 28El dueño les dijo: ‘Algún enemigo ha hecho esto.’ Los trabajadores le preguntaron: ‘¿Quiere usted que vayamos a arrancar la mala hierba?’ 29Pero él les dijo: ‘No, porque al arrancar la mala hierba pueden arrancar también el trigo. 30Lo mejor es dejarlos crecer juntos hasta la cosecha; entonces mandaré a los que han de recogerla que recojan primero la mala hierba y la aten en manojos, para quemarla, y que después guarden el trigo en mi granero.’ ” ... 36Jesús despidió entonces a la gente y entró en la casa, donde sus discípulos se le acercaron y le pidieron que les explicara la parábola de la mala hierba en el campo. 37Jesús les respondió: “El que siembra la buena semilla es el Hijo del hombre, 38y el campo es el mundo. La buena semilla representa a los que son del reino, y la mala hierba representa a los que son del maligno, 39y el enemigo que sembró la mala hierba es el diablo. La cosecha representa el fin del mundo, y los que recogen la cosecha son los ángeles. 40Así como la mala hierba se recoge y se echa al fuego para quemarla, así sucederá también al fin del mundo. 41El Hijo del hombre mandará a sus ángeles a recoger de su reino a todos los que hacen pecar a otros, y a los que practican el mal. 42Los echarán en el horno encendido, y vendrán el llanto y la desesperación. 43Entonces los justos brillarán como el sol en el reino de su Padre. Los que tienen oídos, oigan.

The Apostle’s Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty maker of heaven and earth.

 

And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell.  The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From thence he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of  the body, and the life everlasting.  Amen.

 

Sermon Hymn: Come, Ye thankful People, Come  (892)

Come, ye thankful people, come; Raise the song of harvest home.

All be safely gathered in, Ere the winter storms begin;

God, our Maker, doth provide, For our wants to be supplied.

Come to God's own temple, come; Raise the song of harvest home.

All the world is God's own field, Fruit unto His praise to yield;

Wheat and tares together sown, Unto joy or sorrow grown.

First the blade and then the ear, Then the full corn shall appear.

Lord of harvest, grant that we, Wholesome grain and pure may be.

For the Lord, our God, shall come, And shall take His harvest home,

From His field shall in that day, All offences purge away,

Give His angels charge at last, In the fire the tares to cast,

But the fruitful ears to store, In His garner evermore.

Even so, Lord, quickly come, To Thy final harvest home;

Gather Thou Thy people in, Free from sorrow, free from sin,

There, forever purified, In Thy garner to abide:

Come with all Thine angels, come, Raise the glorious harvest home.

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

 

Service of the Sacrament

Pastor: The Lord be with you.

People: And also with you.

Pastor: Lift up your hearts.

People: We lift them to the Lord.

People:   It is right to give Him thanks and praise.

Pastor: It is indeed right, our duty and our joy, that we should always sing of your glory, holy Father, almighty and eternal God, through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord. For you are the hope of the nations, the builder of the city that is to come. Your love made visible in Jesus Christ brings home the lost, restores the sinner and gives dignity to the despised.

People:      Amen.

 

Prayer of Thanksgiving

Blessed are You, Lord of heaven and earth, for You have had mercy on those whom You created and sent Your only-begotten Son into our flesh to bear our sin and be our Savior. With repentant joy, we receive the salvation accomplished for us by the all-availing sacrifice of His body and His blood on the cross. Gathered in the name and the remembrance of Jesus, we beg You, O Lord, to forgive, renew, and strengthen us with Your Word and Spirit. Grant us to faithfully eat His body and drink His blood as He bids us to in His own testament. Gather us together from the ends of the earth to celebrate, with all the faithful, the marriage feast of the Lamb in His kingdom, which has no end. Receive our prayers; deliver and preserve us. To You alone be all glory, honor, and worship, now and forever. Amen.

Closing Hymn: Ten Thousand Reasons

[chorus:]

Bless the Lord, O my soul, O... my soul, worship his holy name.

Sing like never before, O my soul; I’ll worship your holy name.

The sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning,

It’s time to sing your song again.

Whatever may pass, and whatever lies before me,...

Let me be singing when the evening comes. [chorus]

You’re rich in love and you’re slow to anger;

Your name is great and your heart is kind.

For all your goodness, I will keep on singing;...

Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find.   [chorus]

And on that day, when my strength is failing,

The end draws near, and my time has come;

Still, my soul will sing your praise unending...

Ten Thousand years, and then forevermore!   [chorus X2]

Worship your holy name

Lord, I’ll worship your holy name!
