GLORIFY HIM ... GROW IN HIM ... GO WITH HIS GOSPEL

16th Sunday after Pentecost September 20, 2020

Welcome to St. Mark’s Lutheran Church & School!
 
In the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ, we welcome you to St. Mark’s. We especially welcome our guests who have joined us today. We pray you will be strengthened by the good news about God’s grace, love, and forgiveness through Jesus.

Worship Focus:
It's difficult to do, but it's an honor and a privilege from God; admonishing our brothers and sisters in faith.
Our gracious God has given us the belessed task of helping keep each other on the path that leads to heaven.
Thankfully he tells us we're not alone, and he equips us for the task by giving us his law and his gospel. 
All of it, every step of the way, revels out God's love for sinners, and God be praised that today we get 
to celebrate how we get to imitate that love!

Welcome to St. Mark’s Lutheran Church & School!
 
In the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ, we welcome you to St. Mark’s. We especially welcome our guests who have joined us today. We pray you will be strengthened by the good news about God’s grace, love, and forgiveness through Jesus.

Worship Focus: Do you have good intentions? Pick a topic and ask yourself the question. When
it comes to worship traditions, for example, our intentions may be good but what can make good
intentions not the case? The Lord does not mince words - that which takes the focus off of Him
and puts it on self is not sound practice no matter how good the intentions. God help us examine
our intentions on all fronts. Blessings be evident as we worship Him.

Welcome to St. Mark’s Lutheran Church & School!
 

In the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ, we welcome you to St. Mark’s. We especially welcome our guests who have joined us today. We pray you will be strengthened by the good news about God’s grace, love, and forgiveness through Jesus.

Worship Focus:
Focus of Today’s Service: Nothing can stop our God from preserving his church.  The gates of hell and the power of Satan might come at us with full force, but God’s church will not be overcome.  Why? Because God builds his church on the rock-solid testimony of Christ crucified.  The Son of the living God has forgiven our sins, and God’s church is equipped with that message of forgiveness.  God in his grace, with his power, and through his Word will preserve his people.

In the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ, we welcome you to St. Mark’s. We especially welcome our guests who have joined us today. We pray you will be strengthened by the good news about God’s grace, love, and forgiveness through Jesus.

Worship Focus:
Do you like exercise?
Maybe your answer depends on the day or for what purpose you are exercising. Exercise for our faith is just as
important. God allows tests to help with this exercise. He also has provided His Word to help us exercise His 
gift of faith. Confessions of faith, along with prayer, are other ways to exercise our faith. 
If we do not exercise, what can happen? God bless the hearing and reading of His Word today and everyday.

Welcome to St. Mark’s Lutheran Church & School!
 

In the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ, we welcome you to St. Mark’s. We especially welcome our guests who have joined us today. We pray you will be strengthened by the good news about God’s grace, love, and forgiveness through Jesus.

Worship Focus: : “Did God really say?”  That temptation has been around as long as faith has been.  God tells 
us something, and we have faith that it’s true—we believe!  But because of sin we always have to wrestle with 
doubt.  Doubt in God’s care naturally brings with it fear and despair and wavering, especially in the midst of 
trials.  God’s answer to such doubt: his power.  He’s proven it numerous times in the past, and he’ll prove it 
again with everything he’s promised us.  He’ll follow through—he always does!  It’s confidence in that fact that 
guides the Christian to answer doubt with faith.

Worship Focus: Does a life of hardship mean that God does not care or does not exist? Not at
all. The way to endure a life of hardship, different for each one of us, is through God’s care; which
He provides through His Word, as well as through people He puts into our life. We have examples
of this in our worship today. God remains compassionate. Marvel again how God can use hardship
for something good.

In the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ, we welcome you to St. Mark’s. We especially welcome our guests who have joined us today. We pray you will be strengthened by the good news about God’s grace, love, and forgiveness through Jesus.

Worship Focus: How much value would you say the gospel has? Does your life match your answer? It will
someday. Today Jesus reminds us that the gospel is the most priceless treasure we have—no other kind of
treasure compares! And that will be revealed on the Last Day when those with faith in the gospel and those
without are separated for all eternity. So does our life reflect our faith in this? If not, let us do what Paul
implores and seek spiritual wealth and lay up for ourselves treasures in the coming age instead of focusing on the
treasures of this age.

him. But how? Where do we need to go? How can we stay safe and healthy? What are we to do on this
journey? Jesus provides answers to all of those questions in his ever-guiding Word and in his almighty power
and grace. He provides the sure promise, the healing, the power, and the purpose. Jesus leads the way!

Worship Focus:
Lots of spiritual battles we face out there everyday. Lots of spiritual stress that can eat away atour hearts, especially with each sin we commit. Lots of anxiety-inducing worries out there, especially when we consider our eternal futures. So today we praise the Father for sending his Son, who came and secured our Sabbath rest. Our enemies defeated, our burdens taken, and our hope secure, Jesus indeed brings rest to our souls forevermore.
