MORAVIAN DAILY TEXT
Twenty-Sixth Sunday after Pentecost
Watchword for the Week – Let us hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering, for God who has promised is faithful. Hebrew 10:23
Sunday, November 18 – Daniel 12:1–3; Psalm 16; Hebrews 10:11–14, (15–18),19–25; Mark 13:1–8
Those who bring thanksgiving as their sacrifice honor me; to those who go the right way I will show the salvation of God. Psalm 50:23
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:18
Everlasting God, we thank you for your presence in our lives and the lives of those we love. Even when we do not perceive you, even when others do not acknowledge your presence, still you are there, like the sun shining above a veil of thick clouds. God who sees, may we, in faith, discern your presence among us this day. 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 that 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.
