Praise him according to his excellent greatness!

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!”

CONFESSION OF SIN –

Today’s sermon text instructs Christians to avoid haughtiness and put on humility. One of the ways that we do this is by weekly confessing our sins to the Lord. In this small confession on the 8th commandment, the Reformer Martin Bucer instructs Christians on how they should confess to the sin of stealing. As I read these words, pray along in your own heart asking God to forgive us for our own greed and selfishness.

I confess that I have stolen. 

I acknowledge my greed, 

that regarding temporary goods I have set myself against you and your commandments. Greedily and contrary to love, I have seized these goods; 

but scarcely, if at all, I have passed them out, where my neighbor’s need required it.

Therefore, I ask you, heavenly Father, 

that you would graciously forgive me these and all my sins, 

and from now on keep me and protect me, 

so that I may walk only in your way and live, 

through Jesus Christ, your dear Son our Savior.

ASSURANCE OF PARDON – 1 Corinthians 6:11

To those who repent of their sins and trust in Christ for his salvation, 

the Lord declares in 1 Cor. 6:11:

You were washed, you were sanctified, 

you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ 

and by the Spirit of our God.

Therefore, with clean hearts and sanctified spirits 

let’s celebrate together the salvation we find in the name of Christ Jesus our Lord.

SCRIPTURE READING – 1 Timothy 6:17-21 Please stand for the reading. End with “This is the word of the Lord.” 

As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life.

O Timothy, guard the deposit entrusted to you. Avoid the irreverent babble and contradictions of what is falsely called “knowledge,” for by professing it some have swerved from the faith.

Grace be with you.
