MORAVIAN DAILY TEXT
Fourth Sunday of Easter
Watchword for the Week – Jesus says, “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.” John 10:11
Sunday, April 22 – Acts 4:5–12; Psalm 23; 1 John 3:16–24; John 10:11–18
O Lord my God, in you I take refuge; save me from all my pursuers, and deliver me. Psalm 7:1
Jesus prayed: “I am not asking you to take them out of the world, but I ask you to protect them from the evil one.” John 17:15
God in whom we find refuge, we are grateful. When we find life unmanageable we remain hopeful, knowing you provide safekeeping from all that would separate us from you. 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.
