God’s Holy Love Relationship with His Children

God’s Holy Love Relationship with His Children

The Sermon: 1 John 4: 14-17,19

14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world. 15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. 16 And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. 17 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.

The Offering, Pre-Communion Prayer and Consecration

The Distribution of the Lord’s Supper ( TLH 307 : Draw Nigh and Take the Body of the Lord Hymnary.org link & TLH 375 : If Thy Beloved Son, O God Hymnary.org link )

(Because God’s Word presents the reception of this Sacrament as a most intimate expression of spiritual and confessional unity, we ask that only those who have publicly professed such oneness of faith and belief with us by membership at Berea or another CLC church come forward. Please speak with pastor if you are seeking a church home or have any questions.)

The “Nunc Dimittis” (Hymnal, P 29-30)

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.

Benediction Amen
