First Reading
Mark 10:17-22
17  As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. "Good teacher," he asked, "what must I do to inherit eternal life?"
18  "Why do you call me good? Jesus answered. "No one is good--except God alone.
19  You know the commandments: 'Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, do not defraud, honor your father and mother.' "
20  "Teacher, he declared, "all these I have kept since I was a boy."
21  Jesus looked at him and loved him. "One thing you lack," he said. "Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."
22  At this the man's face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth.

Sermon Scripture Reading
Hebrews 3:12-19
12  See to it, brothers, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God.
13  But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness.
14  We have come to share in Christ if we hold firmly till the end the confidence we had at first.
15  As has just been said: "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion."
16  Who were they who heard and rebelled? Were they not all those Moses led out of Egypt?
17  And with whom was he angry for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the desert?
18  And to whom did God swear that they would never enter his rest if not to those who disobeyed?
19  So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief.

Sermon

Offering
"Your Name"

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. 

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.
