Sunday, September 25 – Amos 6:1a,4–7; Psalm 146; 1 Timothy 6:6–19; Luke 16:19–31
I will cleanse them from all the guilt of their sin against me, and I will forgive. Jeremiah 33:8
Our Savior Jesus Christ gave himself for us that he might redeem us from all iniquity and purify for himself a people of his own who are zealous for good deeds. Titus 2:13–14
Forgiving Savior, what solace we find in knowing that our scarlet sins are washed white as snow; in knowing that you not only forgive but that you also forget. The weight of our sin is great; yet, you have taken it from us with your own life so that we might live. We praise you and thank you for this greatest of all gifts! Amen.
Belief of the Church
With the whole of Christendom, we share faith in God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe and confess that God has revealed Himself once and for all in His Son Jesus Christ; that our Lord has redeemed us with whole of mankind by His death and His resurrection; and the there is no salvation apart from Him. We believe that He is present with us in the Word and the Sacrament; that He directs and unites us through His Spirit and thus forms us into a Church. We hear Him summoning us to follow Him, and pray Him to use us in His Service. He joins us together mutually so that knowing ourselves to be members of His Body we become willing to serve each other.
