First Reading
2 Corinthians 5:1-10
1  Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.
2  Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling,
3  because when we are clothed, we will not be found naked.
4  For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.
5  Now it is God who has made us for this very purpose and has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.
6  Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord.
7  We live by faith, not by sight.
8  We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord.
9  So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it.
10  For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.

Sermon Scripture Reading
Mark 4:26-34
26  He also said, "This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground.
27  Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how.
28  All by itself the soil produces grain--first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head.
29  As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come."
30  Again he said, "What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it?
31  It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest seed you plant in the ground.
32  Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds of the air can perch in its shade."
33  With many similar parables Jesus spoke the word to them, as much as they could understand.
34  He did not say anything to them without using a parable. But when he was alone with his own disciples, he explained everything.

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.
