The Sermon: Philippians 4:8-13

8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. 9 The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you. 10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at last your care for me has flourished again; though you surely did care, but you lacked opportunity. 11 Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: 12 I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Hymn 8 – “Father, Who the Light This Day” (see Hymnal Insert)

The Order of Service…………………………………….. WS Setting 1, Pg 1-6
(see Service of Word and Sacrament Setting 1 booklet)

The Scripture Reading – Isaiah 25:6-9

All peoples are invited to God’s eternal feast – what an amazing picture of the joy and peace that we have waiting for us!

Gospel Reading – Matthew 22:1-14

If God invited so many people to his eternal banquet, why do so few actually attend? Leave it to human nature to drag its feet, make excuses, or try to get in while dressed in its own rebellion! Many are called, but few are chosen.

The Apostles Creed

Hymn 425 – “All Depends on Our Possessing” (see Hymnal Insert)
