OPENING HYMN
Praise the One Who Breaks the Darkness LSB 849

1 Praise the One who breaks the darkness
With a liberating light;
Praise the One who frees the pris’ners,
Turning blindness into sight.
Praise the One who preached the Gospel,
Healing ev’ry dread disease,
Calming storms, and feeding thousands
With the very Bread of peace.

2 Praise the One who blessed the children
With a strong, yet gentle, word;
Praise the One who drove out demons
With the piercing, two-edged sword.
Praise the One who brings cool water
To the desert’s burning sand;
From this Well comes living water,
Quenching thirst in ev’ry land.

3 Let us praise the Word Incarnate,
Christ, who suffered in our place.
Jesus died and rose victorious
That we may know God by grace.
Let us sing for joy and gladness,
Seeing what our God has done;
Let us praise the true Redeemer,
Praise the One who makes us one.

THE INVOCATION:
Pastor: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
People: Amen.
Pastor: Strive to enter through the narrow door. For many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able. (Luke 13:24) Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in. (Rev. 3:20) I am the Door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture.” (John 10:9)

Pastor: As we follow Jesus, we have opportunities to walk away or walk by faith. We can confess with the Psalmist, “I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness” (Ps. 84:10), or we can turn aside to open doors of darkness and evil. We know what’s behind the door of darkness--death. And we know what’s behind the door of faith--true life. We confess now our failure to walk by faith:

Lord God, we fail to follow you. We open doors that lead to destruction and evil. We choose jealousy over love, fear over faith, deceit over truth, death over life. Forgive us in the name of Jesus. Restore us, and lead us through the door of everlasting life in Christ.

Jesus tells us today, “I am the Door. Anyone who enters by me will be saved. The thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy. But I have come that they may have life, and life abundantly.” Enter today by the door of Faith. Walk today in the light of Jesus. He has forgiven you, restored you, and set you free. Go in the promise of abundant life, guaranteed in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
People: Amen.

PRAYER OF THE DAY
Pastor: Lord God, You have created us to desire You. We focus on the wrong things many times. By the power of Jesus, turn our hearts to You. Help us to forsake our unhealthy desires and find our delight in you. We pray this in Jesus' name, Amen.
People: Amen.
APOSTLES’ CREED
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From thence He will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

SERMON- The Door of Desire

SERMON NOTES:




















Prayers/Lord's Prayer

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven; give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.
CLOSING HYMN
“Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing" LSB 686

1 Come, Thou Fount of ev’ry blessing,
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise.
While the hope of endless glory
Fills my heart with joy and love,
Teach me ever to adore Thee;
May I still Thy goodness prove.

2 Here I raise my Ebenezer,
Hither by Thy help I’ve come;
And I hope, by Thy good pleasure,
Safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wand’ring from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger,
Interposed His precious blood.

3 Oh, to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be;
Let that grace now like a fetter
Bind my wand’ring heart to Thee:
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it;
Prone to leave the God I love.
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for Thy courts above.

4 Oh, that day when freed from sinning,
I shall see Thy lovely face;
Clothed then in the blood-washed linen,
How I’ll sing Thy wondrous grace!
Come, my Lord, no longer tarry;
Take my ransom’d soul away;
Send Thine angels soon to carry
Me to realms of endless day.
