Sixteenth Sunday after Pentacost September 29, 2019
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 to us through Jesus. Worship Focus: Jesus says today in the Gospel: “ Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions. ” How true! There’s so much more to life thanks to Christ and the eternal life he’s given us. However, we often fall into the t emptations of greed and abundance and forget about being rich toward God. So today we get a needed, stern, and loving reminder from our Savior that our earthly wealth is meaningless without him .
Focus of Today’s Service: When it comes to your office or your team, you want people who are not committed to the task at hand, correct? We want just the opposite, and for good reason. Jesus is not asking of us anything less than what we expect in those situations. Jesus is upfront about the commitment He expects of us; and, He provides the means for us to measure up and excel inthese expectations. This is one of the reasons why we have gathered together once again.
