Preparing for the Lord's day
What you see is what you get, but what you see isn’t all that’s there. That’s especially true in Balaam’s life as we look at Numbers 22:22-35 in a sermon entitled, “Donkey See, Donkey Do.” While Balaam has prophetic powers, he is unable to see his own sin as well as his salvation (which comes from a donkey). Not much has changed for us as we are often blind to our sin as well as the true source of our salvation. May God open our eyes that we might see and believe.
This week we will celebrate the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper during our worship service. As we receive the elements of bread and cup, we look in faith to the Lord Jesus Christ. We claim the promises found in the supper that he who is hungry will find the Bread of Life…he who is thirsty will find the Living Water and he who comes in faith will be welcomed. Our hymns this week are: “Tell Out, My Soul, The Greatness of the Lord,” “Praise My Soul, the King of Heaven,” “Be Thou My Vision,” and “How Sweet the Name of Jesus Sounds."
