First Reading
Hebrews 7:23-28
23  Now there have been many of those priests, since death prevented them from continuing in office;
24  but because Jesus lives forever, he has a permanent priesthood.
25  Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.
26  Such a high priest meets our need--one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens.
27  Unlike the other high priests, he does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own sins, and then for the sins of the people. He sacrificed for their sins once for all when he offered himself.
28  For the law appoints as high priests men who are weak; but the oath, which came after the law, appointed the Son, who has been made perfect forever.

Sermon Scripture Reading
Mark 10:46-52
46  Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (that is, the Son of Timaeus), was sitting by the roadside begging.
47  When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!"
48  Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!"
49  Jesus stopped and said, "Call him." So they called to the blind man, "Cheer up! On your feet! He's calling you."
50  Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus.
51  "What do you want me to do for you? Jesus asked him. The blind man said, "Rabbi, I want to see."
52  "Go, said Jesus, "your faith has healed you." Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.

In Whom Do We Believe? Explanation to the Third Article of The Apostles Creed
I believe that I cannot by my own reason or strength believe in Jesus Christ, my Lord, or come to him; but the Holy Spirit has called me by the Gospel, enlightened me with his gifts, sanctified and kept me in the true faith.  In the same way he calls, gathers, enlightens, and sanctifies the whole Christian church on earth, and keeps it with Jesus Christ in the one true faith.  In this Christian church he daily and richly forgives all my sins and the sins of all believers.  On the Last Day, he will raise me and all the dead, and give eternal life to me and all believers in Christ.  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.
