Latest Weekend Services At Grace
Eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost
- Not the one with status
- Not the one with strength
- But the one who serves
SERMON TEXT: Mark 9:30-37
They went on from there and passed through Galilee. He did not want anyone to know this, because he was teaching his disciples. He told them, “The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into the hands of men, and they will kill him. But three days after he is killed, he will rise.” But they did not understand the statement and were afraid to ask him about it. They came to Capernaum. When he was in the house, he asked them, “What were you arguing about on the way?” But they remained silent, because on the way they had argued with one another about who was the greatest. Jesus sat down, called the Twelve, and said to them, “If anyone wants to be first, he will be the last of all and the servant of all.” Then he took a little child and placed him in their midst. Taking the child in his arms, he said to them, “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me. And whoever welcomes me, welcomes not just me but also him who sent me.”
FIRST LESSON: Numbers 12:1-15
Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Cushite woman he had married (for he had married a Cushite woman). They said, “Has the LORD really spoken only through Moses? Hasn’t he also spoken through us?” The LORD heard this. (Now the man Moses was very humble, more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth.) Right then the LORD spoke suddenly to Moses, Aaron, and Miriam, “You three come out to the Tent of Meeting!” The three of them came out. The LORD came down in a pillar of cloud and stood at the entrance to the tent. He called Aaron and Miriam, and they both came forward. He said, “Now listen to my words: If there is a prophet among you, I, the LORD, will make myself known to him in a vision. In a dream I will speak with him. Not so, however, with my servant Moses. He is faithful in my whole household. With him I speak face to face, clearly, and not in riddles. He sees the form of the LORD. Why then were you not afraid to speak against my servant, against Moses?” The LORD’s anger burned against them, and he left. The cloud went up from above the tent, and immediately Miriam was leprous, as white as snow. Aaron turned to Miriam and saw that she was leprous. Aaron said to Moses, “My lord, please do not hold this sin against us. We have acted foolishly. We have sinned. Please do not let her be like a stillborn infant that comes out of its mother’s womb with its flesh half-eaten away.” Moses cried out to the LORD, “God, please heal her, please!” The LORD said to Moses, “If her father had merely spit in her face, would she not be disgraced for seven days? Have her confined outside of the camp for seven days, and after that she can be brought back in.” Miriam was confined outside of the camp for seven days, and the people did not set out until Miriam was brought back in.
SECOND LESSON: James 3:13-18
Who among you is wise and intelligent? Let him by his good way of living show that he does things in wise humility. But if you have bitter envy and selfish ambition in your heart, do not boast and lie, contrary to the truth. This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but it is worldly, unspiritual, and demonic. In fact, where there is envy and selfish ambition, there will also be disorder and every bad practice. But the wisdom that comes from above is first pure, then also peaceful, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial, and sincere. And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who practice peace.
VERSE OF THE DAY: 1 Corinthians 12:9a
My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.
GOSPEL: Mark 9:30-37

Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost
- Leave behind the pleasures of sin
- Live joyfully in God’s protection
- Look forward to your heavenly reward
SERMON TEXT: Hebrews 11:24-28
By faith Moses refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter when he grew up. He chose to be mistreated with God’s people rather than enjoy sin for a little while. He considered disgrace for the sake of Christ as greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt, because he was looking ahead to his reward. By faith he left Egypt without fearing the king’s wrath, because he persevered as one who sees him who is invisible. By faith he celebrated the Passover and the sprinkling of blood, so that the destroyer of the firstborn would not strike them down.
FIRST LESSON: Exodus 7:8-13
The LORD said to Moses and to Aaron, “When Pharaoh says to you, ‘Give us a warning sign,’ then you are to tell Aaron, ‘Take your staff and throw it down in front of Pharaoh, and it will become a snake.’” Then Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh. They did just as the LORD had commanded. Aaron threw down his staff in front of Pharaoh and his officials, and it became a snake. But then Pharaoh also called for his wise men and sorcerers. Those magicians of Egypt did the same thing by their occult practices. They each threw down their staffs, and those staffs became snakes. However, Aaron’s staff swallowed up their staffs. But Pharaoh’s heart was hard, and he did not listen to them, just as the LORD had said.
SECOND LESSON: Hebrews 11:24-58

VERSE OF THE DAY: 1 Timothy 1:10b
Jesus Christ has destroyed death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel
GOSPEL: John 6:60-69
When they heard it, many of his disciples said, “This is a hard teaching! Who can listen to it?” But Jesus, knowing in himself that his disciples were grumbling about this, asked them, “Does this cause you to stumble in your faith? What if you would see the Son of Man ascending to where he was before? The Spirit is the one who gives life. The flesh does not help at all. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life. But there are some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus knew from the beginning those who would not believe and the one who would betray him. He said, “This is why I told you that no one can come to me, unless it is given to him by my Father.” After this, many of his disciples turned back and were not walking with him anymore. So Jesus asked the Twelve, “You do not want to leave too, do you?” Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom will we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and know that you are the Holy One of God.”
Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost
SERMON TEXT: John 6:51-58
“I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats this bread, he will live forever. The bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.” At that, the Jews argued among themselves, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?” So Jesus said to them, “Amen, Amen, I tell you: Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life in yourselves. The one who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the Last Day. For my flesh is real food, and my blood is real drink. The one who eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him. Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven, not like your fathers ate and died. The one who eats this bread will live forever.”
FIRST LESSON: Proverbs 9:1-6
Wisdom has built her house. She has carved out her seven pillars. She has prepared her meat. She has mixed her wine. She has already set her table. She has sent out her servant girls. She calls from the highest point in the city, “Whoever is naïve, let him turn in here.” To someone who lacks sense she says, “Come, eat my food, and drink the wine that I have mixed. Abandon your naïve ways and live. Travel the road to understanding.”
SECOND LESSON: Ephesians 5:15-20
Consider carefully, then, how you walk, not as unwise people, but as wise people. Make the most of your time, because the days are evil. For this reason, do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not get drunk on wine, which causes you to lose control. Instead, be filled with the Spirit by speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs (singing and making music with your hearts to the Lord), by always giving thanks for everything to God the Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Jesus said, “I am the bread of life.”
How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord Almighty!
My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord.
My heart and my flesh cry out for the Living God.
Even the sparrow has found a home
And the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young.
A place near your altar.
O Lord Almighty, my King and my God, blessed are those who dwell in your house. They are forever praising you.
GOSPEL: John 6:51-58
