COVER-TO-COVER THROUGH THE BIBLE

Week 16: Deuteronomy 16-26

Fourth Sunday of Easter

April 22, 2018
 

Sharing Christ – Changing Lives!  Good Shepherd is a Christian family committed to responding to our Lord’s love and command to “make disciples of all nations” by sharing the Good News of Christ through our words and actions.

                                                                                   
Welcome:  We would like to extend a warm welcome to all our visitors this morning.  We pray that God will touch your life through your worship with us today and that you will come back soon.  Please sign the “Welcome Folder” distributed during the offering, and if you are a visitor, also include your address and phone number, so that we may have an opportunity to contact you. 
 

 

The 8:00 Divine Service and 10:46 Worship are projected on the screen.

 

Outlines of each service are included in this folder.

 

 

8:00 DIVINE SERVICE gets its name from the fact that worship is most importantly God serving us. We come at his invitation not to do God a favor, but to receive from him what he alone has to offer, after which we respond in praise. 8:00 Divine Service uses a variety of rich, beautiful, and often ancient traditions of the church found in the hymnal accompanied by the organ, as well as, piano and other various instruments on special occasions.

                                                                            ---------------------------------------------------------------
10:46 WORSHIP gets its name from Acts 10:46 where it mentions that the apostles “heard the Gentiles speaking in tongues and praising God” – which could well describe this time of worship where God is present and his people are responding.  10:46 WORSHIP blends the best of both ancient tradition and modern music and instruments recognizing the ongoing, present-day work of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Beginning at 10:46 AM also suggests a more casual worship where you’re invited to come just as you are.


WELCOME TO THE LORD’S TABLE
Today we celebrate the Lord’s Supper at the 10:46 a.m. Service.


The Lord’s Supper should reflect our unity in faith and doctrine (see 1 Corinthians 1:10 & 10:17).  St. Paul urges us, “One should examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup” (1 Corinthians 11:28). 

In order to receive the blessing of this Sacrament, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Am I truly sorry for my sins and so desire God’s forgiveness?
  2. Do I believe that Jesus is my Savior and that He gives me His true body and true blood with the bread and wine – to forgive all my sins and to assure me of eternal salvation?
  3. Do I plan, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to change my sinful life?

 

ALL WHO COMMUNE, please record your attendance in the “Welcome Folder” (located in each pew).  If you are communing with us for the first time, please speak to the Pastor prior to the service, if possible.

AT COMMUNION, an Elder carries the tray of individual cups and the Pastor invites you to drink either from the cup you have taken or from the common cup, which he carries.  Cups in the center circle of the trays contain non-alcoholic wine for those who prefer it.

 

Happy Birthday

Life Quote  “Having already swallowed death down along with humankind’s guilt and buried it beneath His resurrection, Jesus Christ has no death left in Him and allows none near His own. Bravely and gratefully we keep sharing what He continues showing us, that all persons are worth it despite the cost and opposition, every one precious for His grace’s sake and not dependent upon appearance or age or ability.” Rev. Michael W. Salemink, executive director of Lutherans For Life – A Life Quote from Lutherans For Life • www.lutheransforlife.org

Spending regular time in God’s Word is what Jesus’ disciples do and is important at Good Shepherd.  The main goal is not to get through the Bible, but for the Bible to get through to us.  We follow a plan that takes us through the Bible from cover-to-cover in two years.  Each Sunday a text is selected from the previous week’s reading – usually along with two other texts that have some connection.  You’re invited to follow the weekly reading plan.  A special devotional Bible called The Today’s Light Bible is available, if interested, that not only is divided into daily readings but also adds a brief explanation and application each day.

                                     Today’s Light Reading Plan – Week 17

                        Monday......... …………………………….Deuteronomy 27:1-26
                        Tuesday....... …………..…………………Deuteronomy 28:1-68
                        Wednesday....... …………………………Deuteronomy 29:1-29
                        Thursday......... …………………….…….Deuteronomy 30:1-20
                        Friday.............................................. Deuteronomy 31:1-30
                        Saturday.......... …………….……….……Deuteronomy 32:1-52
 

From the blessings we receive from God, He bestows us with the capacity to give generously from those blessings.  “And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work” (2 Corinthians 9:8).

Set aside Saturday, June 2, 2018 for our “Spring into Summer” event at Camp Manitoqua & Retreat Center with a 12,000’ family friendly obstacle run, swimming, food, and activities for kids and adults alike, as we kick of our 2018 summer camp season.  Invitations with details well be forthcoming in April or visit Manitoqua.org/springintosummer.
