The Lord Leads Us

Psalm 130:5 I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in His word I do hope.

The Sermon: Psalm 130

Out of the depths I have cried to You, O Lord; Lord, hear my voice! Let Your ears be attentive To the voice of my supplications. If You, Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? But there is forgiveness with You, That You may be feared. I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, And in His word I do hope. My soul waits for the Lord More than those who watch for the morning— Yes, more than those who watch for the morning. O Israel, hope in the Lord; For with the Lord there is mercy, And with Him is abundant redemption. And He shall redeem Israel From all his iniquities.

Opening Hymn LSB 722 : Lord, Take My Hand and Lead Me Hymnary.org link “Lord, Take My Hand and Lead Me”

The Invocation

Responsive Reading Of Psalm 32

The Scripture Reading – 2 Corinthians 4:13-5:1

The importance of sharing the Gospel of the risen Christ becomes even greater in light of the eternal assurances that belong to the believing, even in the face of our life struggles.

The Nicene Creed (Inside Back Cover Of Hymnal)

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of His Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God; begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made; Who, for us men and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried; and the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of the Father. And He will come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead, whose kingdom will have no end.

And I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father and the Son; who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets. And I believe one holy Christian and Apostolic Church. I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins, and I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

The Absolution

The Consecration Of The Elements

The Distribution Of The Sacrament (Hymns LSB 718 : Jesus, Lead Thou On Hymnary.org link & LSB 636 : Soul, Adorn Yourself with Gladness 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 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, Amen, Amen

(“These words are not just the wish of your pastor. When God’s servants pronounce this benediction, something wonderful happens: God’s name is placed upon you. What blessing! With the name of Jehovah, our triune God, placed upon us, we have it all. Father Jehovah keeps us in His loving embrace. Jehovah the Son gave Himself for us so that none of our sins will cause His face to be turned from us. And with the Spirit of Jehovah working in our hearts, we will truly have peace, as we see God’s countenance ever smiling upon us.”)
