What Kind of a Catch Are You?

Sermon: Matthew 13: 47 – 50

47“Once again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was let down into the lake and caught all kinds of fish. 48When it was full, the fishermen pulled it up on the shore. Then they sat down and collected the good fish in baskets, but threw the bad away. 49This is how it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous 50and throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Song by Choir – “Jerusalem, Jerusalem” WS 794 (Dir: Cathy Augustin)

Opening Hymn LSB 893 : Sing to the Lord of Harvest Hymnary.org link “Sing To The Lord Of Harvest”

The Order of Service………………………………………. Hymnal, Page 167

The Scripture (Epistle) Reading – 2 Peter 3: 3-14

Contrary to what many scoffers claim, the end of all things will come – its seeming delay happening only because the Lord in His mercy wants all to be saved. On that day, eternity will usher in “the new heavens and the new earth” for all believers. Lord, prepare our hearts with a firm faith, that we forgiven sinners may be found spotless and blameless in our Savior.

The Apostles Creed (Inside Back Cover Of Hymnal)

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.
