Are You Rich Or Poor?

The Sermon: Luke 16: 17-31

19 “There was a certain rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and fared sumptuously every day. 20 But there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, full of sores, who was laid at his gate, 21 desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table. Moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried. 23 And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. 24 “Then he cried and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.’ 25 But Abraham said, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is comforted and you are tormented. 26 And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that those who want to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from there pass to us.’ 27 “Then he said, ‘I beg you therefore, father, that you would send him to my father’s house, 28 for I have five brothers, that he may testify to them, lest they also come to this place of torment.’ 29 Abraham said to him, ‘They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.’ 30 And he said, ‘No, father Abraham; but if one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’ 31 But he said to him, ‘If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded though one rise from the dead.’”

Twenty-second Sunday After Pentecost

Sunday, October 16, 2016 (9:00 a.m.)

Song by Choir – “Ye Servants of God”

(Director: Cathy Augustin ; Accompanist: Steph Mueller)

1 Ye servants of God, your Master proclaim, and publish abroad his wonderful Name; the name all-victorious of Jesus extol: his kingdom is glorious; he rules over all.

2 ‘Salvation to God who sits on the throne!’ let all cry aloud, and honor the Son: the praises of Jesus the angels proclaim, fall down on their faces, and worship the Lamb.

3 Then let us adore, and give him his right: All glory and power, all wisdom and might, All honor and blessing, with angels above, and thanks never-ceasing and infinite love.

Opening Hymn LSB 791 : All People That on Earth Do Dwell Hymnary.org link “All People That On Earth Do Dwell”

The Liturgy – Hymnal, Page 151

The Scripture Reading – 1 Timothy 6: 6-12, 17-19

In reminding us of the fleeting emptiness and eternal worthlessness of earthly treasures, the Apostle also encourages us to pursue the spiritual and eternal treasures found in Christ, to use earthly blessings for eternal purposes and to put our hope alone in God.

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.
