First Reading
Matthew 14:22-33
22  Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd.
23  After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone,
24  but the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it.
25  During the fourth watch of the night Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake.
26  When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. "It's a ghost," they said, and cried out in fear.
27  But Jesus immediately said to them: "Take courage! It is I. Don't be afraid."
28  "Lord, if it's you,” Peter replied, "tell me to come to you on the water."
29  "Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus.
30  But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, "Lord, save me!"
31  Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. "You of little faith," he said, "why did you doubt?"
32  And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down.
33  Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, "Truly you are the Son of God."

Sermon Scripture Reading
Romans 10:5-17
5 Moses describes in this way the righteousness that is by the law: "The man who does these things will live by them." 
6  But the righteousness that is by faith says: "Do not say in your heart, 'Who will ascend into heaven?' " (that is, to bring Christ down) 
7  or 'Who will descend into the deep?'  (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead).
8  But what does it say? "The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart," that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming:
9  That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
10  For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.
11  As the Scripture says, "Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame."
12  For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile--the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him,
13  for, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."
14  How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?
15  And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!"
16  But not all the Israelites accepted the good news. For Isaiah says, "Lord, who has believed our message?"
17  Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.

Sermon

Offering
"Love The Lord"

In Whom Do We Believe? Explanation to the First Article of The Apostles Creed
I believe that God has made me and all creatures; that he has given me my body and soul, eyes, ears, and all my members, my reason and all my senses, and still takes care of them.  He also gives me clothing and shoes, food and drink, house and home, spouse and children, land, animals, and all I have.  He richly and daily provides me with all that I need to support this body and life.  He defends me against all danger and guards and protects me from all evil.  All this he does only out of fatherly, divine goodness and mercy, without any merit or worthiness in me.  For all this it is my duty to thank and praise, serve and obey him.  This is most certainly true.

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.
