SERMON TEXT: Numbers 6:22-27
The LORD told Moses to speak to Aaron and to his sons and to tell them to bless the Israelites with these words:
The LORD bless you and keep you.
The LORD make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you.
The LORD look on you with favor
and give you peace.
In this way they will put my name on the Israelites, and I will bless them.

See Sermon Text
SECOND LESSON: Romans 5:1-5
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we also have obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand. And we rejoice confidently on the basis of our hope for the glory of God. Not only this, but we also rejoice confidently in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces patient endurance, and patient endurance produces tested character, and tested character produces hope. And hope will not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, who was given to us.
VERSE OF THE DAY: Isaiah 6:3
Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory
GOSPEL: John 16:12-15
“I still have many things to tell you, but you cannot bear them now. But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. For he will not speak on his own, but whatever he hears he will speak. He will also declare to you what is to come. He will glorify me, because he will take from what is mine and declare it to you. Everything the Father has is mine. This is why I said that he takes from what is mine and will declare it to you.””
