First Reading
Matthew 16:13-20
13  When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, "Who do people say the Son of Man is?" 
14  They replied, "Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets."
15  "But what about you?” he asked. "Who do you say I am?"
16  Simon Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."
17  Jesus replied, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven.
18  And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.
19  I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven."
20  Then he warned his disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Christ.

Sermon Scripture Reading
Galatians 5:1-6
1  It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
2  Mark my words! I, Paul, tell you that if you let yourselves be circumcised, Christ will be of no value to you at all. 
3  Again I declare to every man who lets himself be circumcised that he is obligated to obey the whole law.
4  You who are trying to be justified by law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace. 
5  But by faith we eagerly await through the Spirit the righteousness for which we hope. 
6  For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.

In Whom Do We Believe? Explanation to the Second Article of The Apostles Creed
I believe that Jesus Christ, true God, begotten of the Father from eternity, and also true man, born of the Virgin Mary, is my Lord, who has redeemed me, a lost and condemned person, purchased and won me from all sins, from death, and from the power of the devil; not with gold or silver, but with his holy, precious blood and with his innocent suffering and death, that I may be his own and live under him in his kingdom and serve him in everlasting righteousness, innocence, and blessedness, just as he is risen from the dead, lives and reigns to all eternity. This is most certainly true.

Prayers Of The Day

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.
