First Reading
Luke 24:36-49
36  While they were still talking about this, Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, "Peace be with you."
37  They were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost.
38  He said to them, "Why are you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds?
39  Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself! Touch me and see; a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have."
40  When he had said this, he showed them his hands and feet.
41  And while they still did not believe it because of joy and amazement, he asked them, "Do you have anything here to eat?"
42  They gave him a piece of broiled fish,
43  and he took it and ate it in their presence.
44  He said to them, "This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms."
45  Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures.
46  He told them, "This is what is written: The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day,
47  and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
48  You are witnesses of these things.
49  I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high."

Psalm 4
P:  Answer me when I call to you, my righteous God.
C: Give me relief from my distress; have mercy on me and hear my prayer.
P:  How long will you people turn my glory into shame? How long will you love delusions and seek false gods?
C:  Know that the Lord has set apart his faithful servant for himself; the Lord hears when I call to him.
P: Tremble and[d] do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent.
C: Offer the sacrifices of the righteous and trust in the Lord.
P: Many, Lord, are asking, "Who will bring us prosperity?
C: Let the light of your face shine on us.
P: Fill my heart with joy
C: when their grain and new wine abound.
P: In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, 
C: Lord, make me dwell in safety.

Children's Message

Little Worship

Sermon Scripture Reading
1 John 2:3-14
3  We know that we have come to know him if we obey his commands.
4  The man who says, "I know him," but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
5  But if anyone obeys his word, God's love is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in him:
6  Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did.
7  Dear friends, I am not writing you a new command but an old one, which you have had since the beginning. This old command is the message you have heard.
8  Yet I am writing you a new command; its truth is seen in him and you, because the darkness is passing and the true light is already shining.
9  Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his brother is still in the darkness.
10  Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him to make him stumble.
11  But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness; he does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded him.
12  I write to you, dear children, because your sins have been forgiven on account of his name.
13  I write to you, fathers, because you have known him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I write to you, dear children, because you have known the Father.
14  I write to you, fathers, because you have known him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God lives in you, and you have overcome the evil one.

Sermon

Offering
"Your Name"

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.
