The LORD Ensures His People Have a Shepherd to Lead Them

The Ninth Sunday after Pentecost

  1. Moses, the Lawgiver (and breaker
  2. Eleazar, the Priest
  3. Joshua, the Conqueror
SERMON TEXT:  Numbers 27:12-23

The LORD said to Moses, “Go up onto this mountain in the Abarim range and see the land which I have given to the Israelites. After you have seen it, you yourself will also be gathered to your people just as Aaron your brother was gathered. For when the community quarreled in the Wilderness of Zin, you both rebelled against my command to honor me as holy in their sight at the waters.” (This refers to the waters of Meribah Kadesh in the Wilderness of Zin.) Moses spoke to the LORD, “May the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, appoint a man over the community, who will go out before them and come in before them, who will lead them out and bring them in, so that the community of the LORD will not be like sheep without a shepherd.” The LORD said to Moses, “Take Joshua son of Nun, a man in whom is the Spirit, and place your hand on him. Have him stand in front of Eleazar the priest and the entire community. You will commission him in their sight. You will give some of your authority to him so that the entire Israelite community will listen to him. He will stand before Eleazar the priest, who will inquire for him before the LORD with the decision of the Urim. He and all the Israelites with him, the entire community, will go out at his command and come in at his command.” Moses did just as the LORD commanded him. He took Joshua and had him stand in front of Eleazar the priest and the entire community. He placed his hands on him and commissioned him, just as the LORD spoke through Moses.

Bible Readings

FIRST LESSON:  Numbers 27:12-23

See Sermon Text

SECOND LESSON:  Hebrews 13:7-8,17-21

Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Carefully consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls as men who will give an account. Obey them, so that they may do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no benefit to you. Pray for us, because we are sure that we have a good conscience, and because in everything we want to conduct ourselves in an honorable way. I urge you to do this even more, so that I may be restored to you quickly. Now may the God of peace—who brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, in connection with his blood, which established the eternal testament— may he equip you with every good thing to do his will, as he works in us what is pleasing in his sight through Jesus Christ. To him be glory forever and ever. Amen.

VERSE OF THE DAY:  Isaiah 55:11

Word will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it

GOSPEL: Mark 6:30-34

The apostles gathered around Jesus and reported to him all that they had done and taught. He said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest a while.” For there were so many people coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat. They went away in the boat to a deserted place by themselves. But many people saw them leave and knew where they were going. They ran there on foot from all the towns and arrived ahead of them. When Jesus stepped out of the boat, he saw a large crowd. His heart went out to them because they were like sheep without a shepherd. He began to teach them many things.

Why Are You So Afraid?

Fifth Sunday after Pentecost

  1. Jesus is Powerful
  2. Jesus is Gracious
  3. Jesus is With You
SERMON TEXT:  Mark 4:35-41

On that day, when evening came, Jesus said to them, “Let’s go over to the other side.” After leaving the crowd behind, the disciples took him along in the boat, just as he was. Other small boats also followed him. A great windstorm arose, and the waves were splashing into the boat, so that the boat was quickly filling up. Jesus himself was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. They woke him and said, “Teacher, don’t you care that we are about to drown?” Then he got up, rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” The wind stopped, and there was a great calm. He said to them, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still lack faith?” They were filled with awe and said to one another, “Who then is this? Even the wind and the sea obey him!”

Bible Readings

FIRST LESSON:  Proverbs 30:4-5

Who has gone up to heaven and come down? Who has gathered the wind in the palms of his hands? Who has wrapped the water in a garment? Who has set up all the ends of the earth? What is his name and the name of his son? Tell me if you know! Every word of God has been refined. He is a shield to those who take refuge in him.

SECOND LESSON:  Acts 27:13-26

When a gentle south wind began to blow, they thought they could carry out their plan. They raised the anchor and sailed close to the shore of Crete. But before long, a hurricane-like wind, called the “northeaster,” rushed down from the island. Since the ship was caught in it and could not head into the wind, we gave way to it and were driven along. As we sailed on the sheltered side of a small island called Cauda, we were barely able to secure the skiff. After hoisting it on board, the men tied ropes around the ship to reinforce it. Then, fearing that they would run aground on the sandbars of Syrtis, they lowered the sea anchor and in this way were driven along. Because we were tossed around so violently by the storm, the next day they began to throw the cargo overboard. On the third day, they threw the ship’s gear overboard with their own hands. When neither sun nor stars appeared for many days and the violent storm kept pressing down on us, finally all hope that we would be saved was disappearing. After they had gone a long time without food, Paul stood up among them and said, “Men, you should have followed my advice and not set sail from Crete and avoided this damage and loss. But now I urge you to keep up your courage, because there will be no loss of life among you. Only the ship will be lost. In fact, last night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve stood beside me and said, ‘Do not be afraid, Paul. You must stand before Caesar. And surely God has graciously given you all those who are sailing with you.’ So keep up your courage, men, because I believe God that it will be exactly the way I have been told. However, we must run aground on some island.”

VERSE OF THE DAY:  Galatians 4:6

Because we are his children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!”

GOSPEL: Mark 4:35-41

Learn Repentance From The Ninevites

Fourth Sunday after Pentecost

  1. By Wickedness, Destruction is Decreed
  2. By Repentance, Destruction is Averted
SERMON TEXT:  Jonah 3:1-10

Then the word of the LORD came to Jonah a second time: “Get up, go to Nineveh, the great city, and preach to it the message that I tell you.” So Jonah set out and went to Nineveh just as the word of the LORD had commanded. Now Nineveh was a great city to God. It required a three-day walk. Jonah walked through the city for a day, and he called out, “Forty more days and Nineveh is going to be overthrown!” The men of Nineveh believed God. They proclaimed a fast and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them to the least. When word reached the king of Nineveh, he got up from his throne, took off his royal robe, covered himself with sackcloth, and sat in ashes. Then he issued a proclamation in Nineveh. By the decree of the king and his leading officials: Do not let people or animals, herds or flocks, taste anything. Do not let them eat food or drink water. Instead let people and animals be covered with sackcloth. Let everyone call fervently to God. Let them turn from their evil way and from the violence that is in their hands. Who knows? God may turn and relent. He may turn from his burning anger so that we will not perish. When God saw their actions, that they had turned from their evil way, God relented from the disaster which he said he would bring on them, and he did not carry it out.

Bible Readings

FIRST LESSON:  Jonah 3:1-10

See Sermon Text

SECOND LESSON:  Colossians 1:3-8

We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and the love that you have for all the saints because of the hope that is stored up for you in heaven. You have already heard about this in the word of truth, the gospel that is present with you now. The gospel is bearing fruit and growing in the entire world, just as it also has been doing among you from the day you heard it and came to know the grace of God in truth. You learned this from Epaphras, our dear fellow servant, who is a faithful minister of Christ on your behalf. He is the one who told us about your love in the Spirit.

VERSE OF THE DAY:  Psalms 132:9

May your priests be clothed with righteousness; may your saints sing for joy.

GOSPEL: Mark 4:26-34

He said, “The kingdom of God is like this: A man scatters seed on the ground, and while he sleeps and rises, night and day the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. The ground produces fruit on its own: first the blade, then the head, then the full grain in the head. When the crop is ready, he swings the sickle without delay, because the harvest has come.” Then he said, “To what should we compare the kingdom of God? Or with what parable may we picture it? It is like a mustard seed, which when sown on the ground is one of the smallest of all the seeds planted in the ground. Yet when it is planted, it grows up and becomes larger than all the garden plants and puts out large branches so that the birds of the sky can nest under its shade.” With many similar parables he continued to speak the word to them, as much as they were able to hear. He did not speak to them without a parable. But when he was alone with his disciples, he explained everything to them.
