WELCOME/ANNOUNCEMENTS

OPENING HYMN
           
“Jesus Calls o’er the Tumult”                         HFG 399

Jesus calls us o’er the tumult
Of our life’s wild, restless sea;
Day by day I hear Him saying,
“Christian, come and follow me.”

As, of old, disciples heard it
By the Galilean lake,
Turned from home and work and leisure,
Leaving all for His dear sake:

In our joys and in our sorrows,
Days of toil and hours of ease,
Still He calls in cares and pleasures,
“Christian, love me more than these.”

Jesus calls us: by Thy mercies,
Savior, may we hear Thy call,
Give our hearts to Thine obedience,
Serve and love Thee best of all.

*INVOCATION
L:         In the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
C:        Amen.

*CONFESSION OF SINS
L:         Our help is in the Name of the Lord.
C:        Who made heaven and earth.
L:         Brothers and sisters in Christ:  Scripture clearly reveals that we are all born children of a fallen humanity; Scripture also teaches that if we say that we have no sin we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.
C:        But if we confess our sins, God, who is faithful and just, will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Silence for reflection and self-examination

L:         Heavenly Father,
C:        We have sinned against You in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done and by what we have left undone. We have not loved You with our whole heart;
we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. For the sake of Your Son, Jesus Christ, have mercy on us.
Forgive us, renew us, and lead us, so that we may
            delight in Your will and walk in Your ways, to the glory of Your holy name. Amen.

*ABSOLUTION
L:         In the Word who has come to dwell with us, God has given us grace upon grace; forgiveness that is stronger than our sins, love that can heal every broken heart.  Hear this word of God’s pardon and peace: in the name of Jesus our Savior, you are free from all your sins.  Rise, shine, for your light has come.

*INTROIT    
from Psalms 16
L:         Keep me safe, O God,
C:        for in You I take refuge.
L:         I said to the Lord, “You are my Lord;
C:        apart from You I have no good thing.”
L:         I have set the Lord always before me.
C:        Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
L:         My heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
C:        my body also will rest secure,
L:         because You will not abandon me to the grave,
C:        nor will You let Your Holy One see decay.
L:         You have made known to me the path of life;
C:        You will fill me with joy in Your presence.

*GLORIA PATRI (sung by the congregation)
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end.  Amen.  Amen.

*PRAYER OF THE DAY
(in unison)
Lord of all power and might, author and giver of all good things, graft into our hearts the love of Your name and nourish us with all goodness that we may love and serve our neighbor; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.  Amen.

HYMN
            “Breathe On Me, Breath of God”                   HFG 161

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Fill me with life anew,
That I may love what Thou dost love,
And do what Thou wouldst do.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Until my heart is pure,
Until with Thee I will one will
To do and to endure.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Till I am wholly Thine,
Until this earthly part of me
Glows with Thy fire divine.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
So shall I never die,
But live with Thee the perfect life
Of Thine eternity.

THE WORD OF GOD

FIRST LESSON
                   1 Kings 19:9-21
There he came to a cave and lodged in it. And behold, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” 10 He said, “I have been very jealous for the Lord, the God of hosts. For the people of Israel have forsaken your covenant, thrown down your altars, and killed your prophets with the sword, and I, even I only, am left, and they seek my life, to take it away.” 11 And he said, “Go out and stand on the mount before the Lord.” And behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind tore the mountains and broke in pieces the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. And after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. 12 And after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire the sound of a low whisper. 13 And when Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his cloak and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave. And behold, there came a voice to him and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” 14 He said, “I have been very jealous for the Lord, the God of hosts. For the people of Israel have forsaken your covenant, thrown down your altars, and killed your prophets with the sword, and I, even I only, am left, and they seek my life, to take it away.” 15 And the Lord said to him, “Go, return on your way to the wilderness of Damascus. And when you arrive, you shall anoint Hazael to be king over Syria. 16 And Jehu the son of Nimshi you shall anoint to be king over Israel, and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abel-meholah you shall anoint to be prophet in your place. 17 And the one who escapes from the sword of Hazael shall Jehu put to death, and the one who escapes from the sword of Jehu shall Elisha put to death. 18 Yet I will leave seven thousand in Israel, all the knees that have not bowed to Baal, and every mouth that has not kissed him.”
19 So he departed from there and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen in front of him, and he was with the twelfth. Elijah passed by him and cast his cloak upon him. 20 And he left the oxen and ran after Elijah and said, “Let me kiss my father and my mother, and then I will follow you.” And he said to him, “Go back again, for what have I done to you?” 21 And he returned from following him and took the yoke of oxen and sacrificed them and boiled their flesh with the yokes of the oxen and gave it to the people, and they ate. Then he arose and went after Elijah and assisted him.

SECOND LESSON              Galatians 5:1, 13-25
For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.

13 For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. 14 For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 15 But if you bite and devour one another, watch out that you are not consumed by one another.
16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. 19 Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality,
impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, 21 envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. 24 And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit.

HYMN
            “They’ll Know We Are Christians by Our Love”
                                                                                    HFG 677

We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord,                  
We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord,
And we pray that all unity may one day be restored:

Chorus:
And they’ll know we are Christians by our love,
by our love,
Yes, they’ll know we are Christians by our love.

We will walk with each other, we will walk hand in hand,
We will walk with each other, we will walk hand in hand,
And together we’ll spread the news that God is in our land:

Chorus:

We will work with each other, we will work side by side,
We will work with each other, we will work side by side,
And we’ll guard each man’s dignity
and save each man’s pride:

Chorus:

All praise to the Father, from whom all things come,
And all praise to Christ Jesus, His only Son,
And all praise to the Spirit, who makes us one:

Chorus:

*HOLY GOSPEL                 Luke 9:51-62
51 When the days drew near for him to be taken up, he set his face to go to Jerusalem. 52 And he sent messengers ahead of him, who went and entered a village of the Samaritans, to make preparations for him. 53 But the people did not receive him, because his face was set toward Jerusalem. 54 And when his disciples James and John saw it, they said, “Lord, do you want us to tell fire to come down from heaven and consume them?” 55 But he turned and rebuked them. 56 And they went on to another village.
57 As they were going along the road, someone said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.” 58 And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.” 59 To another he said, “Follow me.” But he said, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” 60 And Jesus said to him, “Leave the dead to bury their own dead. But as for you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God.” 61 Yet another said, “I will follow you, Lord, but let me first say farewell to those at my home.” 62 Jesus said to him, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.”

SERMON                  Pastor Steve Lundblom

*APOSTLES' CREED
I believe in God the Father, Almighty, maker of heaven and earth;

I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate; Was crucified, died and was

buried; He descended into hell, the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven; And sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; From there He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit; The holy Christian Church; The Communion of Saints; The forgiveness of sins; The resurrection of the body and the life everlasting.  Amen.

“10,000 Reasons” (Bless the Lord)

Chorus:
Bless the Lord O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name.
Sing like never before
O my soul
I'll worship Your holy name.

The sun comes up it's a new day dawning
It's time to sing Your song again.
Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me
Let me be singing when the evening comes.

Chorus

You're rich in love and You're slow to anger
Your name is great and Your heart is kind.
For all Your goodness I will keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find.

Chorus

And on that day when my strength is failing
The end draws near and my time has come.
Still my soul will sing Your praise unending
Ten thousand years and then forevermore.

Chorus

Worship Your holy name
Lord I'll worship Your holy name.

            comes again in glory.

*THE WORDS OF INSTITUTION
P:         In the night in which He was betrayed, our Lord Jesus took bread, and gave thanks; broke it, and gave it to His disciples, saying: “Take and eat; this is My body, given for you. Do
            this for the remembrance of Me.”
            Again, after supper, He took the cup, gave thanks and gave it for all to drink, saying: “This cup is the new covenant in My blood, shed for you for the forgiveness of sin. Do this for the
            remembrance of Me.”

*THE LORD’S PRAYER   (In unison)
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.

CLOSING HYMN
            “Living for Jesus”                                           HFG 462

Living for Jesus a life that is true,
Striving to please Him in all that I do;
Yielding allegiance, gladhearted and free,
This is the pathway of blessing for me.

Chorus:
O Jesus, Lord and Savior,
I give myself to Thee,
For Thou, in Thy atonement,
Didst give Thyself for me;
I own no other Master,
My heart shall be Thy throne;
My life I give, henceforth to live,
O Christ, for Thee alone.

Living for Jesus who died in my place,
Bearing on Calvary my sin and disgrace;
Such love constrains me to answer His call,
Follow His leading and give Him my all.

Chorus

Living for Jesus wherever I am,
Doing each duty in His holy name;
Willing to suffer affliction and loss,
Taking each trial as a part of my cross.

Chorus

Living for Jesus through earth’s little while,
My dearest treasure, the light of His smile;
Seeking the lost ones He died to redeem,
Bringing the weary to find rest in Him.

Chorus
