TWENTY-FIFTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST

The Sermon ………………………….……………………….……..… Revelation 20:6

“Blessed and holy are those who have part in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them.”

John 5: 24 – 29

 “I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life. I tell you the truth, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live.For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son to have life in himself. And he has given him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man.

“Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice and come out—those who have done good will rise to live, and those who have done evil will rise to be condemned.”

Confession Of Sins And Absolution
All: Almighty God, merciful Father, I have no righteousness of my own. I have sinned against You in thoughts, words and deeds. Again and again I have violated Your majesty and therefore deserve only Your anger and punishment here on earth and forever in hell. But You promise that Jesus Christ is the atoning sacrifice for my sins and that if I confess my sins, You are faithful and just and will forgive my sins and purify me from all unrighteousness.

Sing TLH 376 : Rock of Ages, Cleft for Me Hymnary.org link :

Nothing in my hand I bring, Simply to Your cross I cling;
Naked, come to You for dress; Helpless, look to You for grace;
Foul, I to the fountain fly – Wash me, Savior, or I die!

Pastor: God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever
believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His
Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.
Whoever believes in Him is not condemned and has crossed over from death to life.

Sing TLH 243 : Oh, that I Had a Thousand Voices Hymnary.org link :

Oh, that I had a thousand voices
To praise my God with thousand tongues!
My heart, which in the Lord rejoices,
Would then proclaim in grateful songs
To all, wherever I might be,
What great things God hath done for me!
