Word & Worship

November 8, 2020

Divine Service - Setting Two
Twenty-third Sunday after Pentecost

 

Theme
“Giving is the language of love; it is godly language, for God is love.  Filled with the fullness of a giving God, we become givers ourselves.  We give love, give thanks, give praise, give heed, give attention, give care, give time, give attention, give care, give time, give effort, give talents, give treasures, and even give forgiveness to others as He has given forgiveness to all.  Thus, we give proof that God has taken up His residence within us.” (Carl Berner, The Power of Pure Stewardship)

Hymn of Invocation - LSB 785 We Praise You, O God
We praise You, O God, our Redeemer, Creator;
    In grateful devotion our tribute we bring.
We lay it before You, we kneel and adore You;
    We bless Your holy name, glad praises we sing.
 
We worship You, God of our fathers, we bless You;
    Through trial and tempest our guide You have been.
When perils o’ertake us, You will not forsake us,
    And with Your help, O Lord, our struggles we win.
 
With voices united our praises we offer
    And gladly our songs of thanksgiving we raise.
With You, Lord, beside us, Your strong arm will guide us.
    To You, our great Redeemer, forever be praise!

Invocation - Matthew 28:19b; 18:20
P   In the name of the Father and of the T Son and of the Holy Spirit.
C   Amen.
 
Exhortation - 1 John 1:8–9
P   If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
C   But if we confess our sins, God, who is faithful and just, will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
 
Silence for reflection on God’s Word and for self-examination.
 
Confession of Sins
P   Let us then confess our sins to God our Father.
C   Most merciful God, we confess that we are by nature sinful and unclean. We have sinned against You in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done and by what we have left undone. We have not loved You with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We justly deserve Your present and eternal punishment. For the sake of Your Son, Jesus Christ, have mercy on us. Forgive us, renew us, and lead us, so that we may delight in Your will and walk in Your ways to the glory of Your holy name. Amen.
 
Absolution - [John 20:19–23]
P   Almighty God in His mercy has given His Son to die for you and for His sake forgives you all your sins. As a called and ordained servant of Christ, and by His authority, I therefore forgive you all your sins in the name of the Father and of the T Son and of the Holy Spirit.
C   Amen.
 
Gloria in Excelsis - LSB 946 Glory to God, We Give You Thanks and Praise
Glory to God, we give You thanks and praise;
    Of heav’nly joy and earthly peace we sing.
We worship You, to You our hearts we raise,
    Lord God, almighty Father, heav’nly King.
 
Lord Jesus Christ, the Father’s only Son,
    You bore for us the load of this world’s sin.
O Lamb of God, Your glorious vict’ry won,
    Receive our prayer, grant us Your peace within.
 
 Alone, O Christ, You only are the Lord,
    At God’s right hand in majesty most high:
Who with the Spirit worshiped and adored,
    With all the heav’nly host we glorify.

Salutation and Collect of the Day
P   The Lord be with you.
C   And also with you.
 
P   Let us pray.
Lord God, heavenly Father, send forth Your Son to lead home His bride, the Church, that with all the company of the redeemed we may finally enter into His eternal wedding feast; through the same Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
C   Amen.
 
Old Testament Reading - Malachi 3:6–15
   “For I the Lord do not change; therefore you, O children of Jacob, are not consumed. From the days of your fathers you have turned aside from my statutes and have not kept them. Return to me, and I will return to you, says the Lord of hosts. But you say, ‘How shall we return?’ Will man rob God? Yet you are robbing me. But you say, ‘How have we robbed you?’ In your tithes and contributions. You are cursed with a curse, for you are robbing me, the whole nation of you. Bring the full tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need. I will rebuke the devourer for you, so that it will not destroy the fruits of your soil, and your vine in the field shall not fail to bear, says the Lord of hosts. Then all nations will call you blessed, for you will be a land of delight, says the Lord of hosts.
   “Your words have been hard against me, says the Lord. But you say, ‘How have we spoken against you?’ You have said, ‘It is vain to serve God. What is the profit of our keeping his charge or of walking as in mourning before the Lord of hosts? And now we call the arrogant blessed. Evildoers not only prosper but they put God to the test and they escape.’”
 
A   This is the Word of the Lord.
C   Thanks be to God.
 
Epistle - 2 Corinthians 9:1–7
   Now it is superfluous for me to write to you about the ministry for the saints, for I know your readiness, of which I boast about you to the people of Macedonia, saying that Achaia has been ready since last year. And your zeal has stirred up most of them. But I am sending the brothers so that our boasting about you may not prove vain in this matter, so that you may be ready, as I said you would be. Otherwise, if some Macedonians come with me and find that you are not ready, we would be humiliated—to say nothing of you—for being so confident. So I thought it necessary to urge the brothers to go on ahead to you and arrange in advance for the gift you have promised, so that it may be ready as a willing gift, not as an exaction.
   The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has made up his mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
 
A   This is the Word of the Lord.
C   Thanks be to God.
 
Alleluia and Verse - John 6:68
C   Alleluia. Lord, to whom shall we go?
You have the words of eternal life. Alleluia.
 
Holy Gospel - Matthew 25:1–13
P   The Holy Gospel according to St. Matthew, the twenty-fifth chapter.
C   Glory to You, O Lord.
 
   [Jesus said:] “The kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them, but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps. As the bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and slept. But at midnight there was a cry, ‘Here is the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ Then all those virgins rose and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ But the wise answered, saying, ‘Since there will not be enough for us and for you, go rather to the dealers and buy for yourselves.’ And while they were going to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast, and the door was shut. Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, lord, open to us.’ But he answered, ‘Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.”
 
P   This is the Gospel of the Lord.
C   Praise to You, O Christ.
 
Apostles’ Creed
C   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 T everlasting. Amen.
 
Hymn of the Day - LSB 787 The Temple Rang with Golden Coins
The temple rang with golden coins
    The rich in bright array
Contributed from gleaming hoards
    Their scales could scarcely weigh.
 
A widow came with copper coins
    And offered them in praise.
They were the last she had to give
    Or save for darker days.
 
When Jesus saw her costly gift
    And knew she had no more,
He praised a love that spared not self
    And called her rich, though poor.
 
At last He brought His offering
    And laid it on a tree;
There gave Himself, His life, His love
    For all humanity.
 
Lord, help us all, with You, to yield
    Whatever love demands
And freely give, as You have giv’n,
    With open hearts and hands.

Offertory - Psalm 116:12–13, 17–19
C   What shall I render to the Lord for all His benefits to me?
I will offer the sacrifice of thanksgiving and will call on the name of the Lord.
I will take the cup of salvation and will call on the name of the Lord.
I will pay my vows to the Lord now in the presence of all His people,

Preface - 2 Timothy 4:22; [Colossians 3:1]; [Psalm 136]
P   The Lord be with you.
C   And also with you.
 
P   Lift up your hearts.
C   We lift them to the Lord.
 
P   Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
C   It is right to give Him thanks and praise.
 
Proper Preface
P   It is truly good, right, and salutary that we should at all times and in all places give thanks to You, holy Lord, almighty Father, everlasting God, through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who on this day overcame death and the grave and by His glorious resurrection opened to us the way of everlasting life. Therefore with angels and archangels and with all the company of heaven we laud and magnify Your glorious name, evermore praising You and saying:
 
Sanctus - Isaiah 6:3; Matthew 21:9
C   Holy, holy, holy Lord, Lord God of pow’r and might:
Heav’n and earth are full of Your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.
 
Prayer of Thanksgiving
P   Blessed are You, Lord of heaven and earth, for You have had mercy on those whom You created and sent Your only-begotten Son into our flesh to bear our sin and be our Savior. With repentant joy we receive the salvation accomplished for us by the all-availing sacrifice of His body and His blood on the cross.
 
Gathered in the name and the remembrance of Jesus, we beg You, O Lord, to forgive, renew, and strengthen us with Your Word and Spirit. Grant us faithfully to eat His body and drink His blood as He bids us do in His own testament. Gather us together, we pray, from the ends of the earth to celebrate with all the faithful the marriage feast of the Lamb in His kingdom, which has no end. Graciously receive our prayers; deliver and preserve us. To You alone, O Father, be all glory, honor, and worship, with the Son and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
C   Amen.
 
Lord’s Prayer - Matthew 6:9–13
P   Lord, remember us in Your kingdom and teach us to pray:
C   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.
 
The Words of Our Lord
P   Our Lord Jesus Christ, on the night when He was betrayed, took bread, and when He had given thanks, He broke it and gave it to the disciples and said: “Take, eat; this is My T body, which is given for you. This do in remembrance of Me.”
 
In the same way also He took the cup after supper, and when He had given thanks, He gave it to them, saying: “Drink of it, all of you; this cup is the new testament in My T blood, which is shed for you for the forgiveness of sins. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”
 
Pax Domini - John 20:19
P   The peace of the Lord be with you always.
C   Amen.
 
Agnus Dei - John 1:29
C   Lamb of God, You take away the sin of the world; have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, You take away the sin of the world; have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, You take away the sin of the world; grant us peace, grant us peace.

Hymn - LSB 784 Take My Life and Let It Be
Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee;
Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in ceaseless praise,
Let them flow in ceaseless praise.
 
Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love;
Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee,
Swift and beautiful for Thee.
 
Take my voice and let me sing
Always, only for my King;
Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee,
Filled with messages from Thee.
 
Take my silver and my gold,
Not a mite would I withhold;
Take my intellect and use
Ev’ry pow’r as Thou shalt choose,
Ev’ry pow’r as Thou shalt choose.
 
Take my will and make it Thine,
It shall be no longer mine;
Take my heart, it is Thine own,
It shall be Thy royal throne,
It shall be Thy royal throne.
 
Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store;
Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee,
Ever, only, all for Thee.

Hymn - LSB 730 What Is the World to Me
What is the world to me
    With all its vaunted pleasure
When You, and You alone,
    Lord Jesus, are my treasure!
You only, dearest Lord,
    My soul’s delight shall be;
You are my peace, my rest.
    What is the world to me!
 
The world seeks to be praised
    And honored by the mighty
Yet never once reflects
    That they are frail and flighty.
But what I truly prize
    Above all things is He,
My Jesus, He alone.
    What is the world to me!
 
The world seeks after wealth
    And all that mammon offers
Yet never is content
    Though gold should fill its coffers.
I have a higher good,
    Content with it I’ll be:
My Jesus is my wealth.
    What is the world to me!
 
What is the world to me!
    My Jesus is my treasure,
My life, my health, my wealth,
    My friend, my love, my pleasure,
My joy, my crown, my all,
    My bliss eternally.
Once more, then, I declare:
    What is the world to me!

Hymn - LSB 628 Your Table I Approach
Your table I approach;
    Dear Savior, hear my prayer.
Let not an unrepentant heart
    Prove hurtful to me there.
 
Lord, I confess my sins
    And mourn their wretched bands;
A contrite heart is sure to find
    Forgiveness at Your hands.
 
Your body and Your blood,
    Once slain and shed for me,
Are taken at Your table, Lord,
    In blest reality.
 
Search not how this takes place,
    This wondrous mystery;
God can accomplish vastly more
    Than what we think could be.
 
O grant, most blessèd Lord,
    That earth and hell combined
May not about this sacrament
    Raise doubt within my mind.
 
Oh, may I never fail
    To thank You day and night
For Your true body and true blood,
    O God, my peace and light.
Text: Public domain
 
Hymn - LSB 632 O Jesus, Blessed Lord, to Thee
O Jesus, blessèd Lord, to Thee
My heartfelt thanks forever be,
Who hast so lovingly bestowed
On me Thy body and Thy blood.
 
Break forth, my soul, for joy and say:
What wealth is come to me this day!
My Savior dwells within my heart:
How blessed am I! How good Thou art!
Text: Public domain
 
Thank the Lord - [Psalm 105:1–3, 42–43]; [1 Chronicles 16:8–10]
C   Thank the Lord and sing His praise; tell ev’ryone what He has done.
Let ev’ryone who seeks the Lord rejoice and proudly bear His name.
He recalls His promises and leads His people forth in joy
with shouts of thanksgiving. Alleluia, alleluia.
 
Post-Communion Collect
A   Let us pray.
Gracious God, our heavenly Father, You have given us a foretaste of the feast to come in the Holy Supper of Your Son’s body and blood. Keep us firm in the true faith throughout our days of pilgrimage that, on the day of His coming, we may, together with all Your saints, celebrate the marriage feast of the Lamb in His kingdom which has no end; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
C   Amen.
 
Benediction - Numbers 6:24–26
P   The Lord bless you and keep you.
The Lord make His face shine on you and be gracious to you.
The Lord look upon you with favor and T give you peace.
C   Amen.
 
Hymn to Depart - LSB 782 Gracious God, You Send Great Blessings
Gracious God, You send great blessings
    New each morning all our days.
For Your mercies never ending,
    For Your love we offer praise. Refrain
 
Refrain:  Lord, we pray that we, Your people
    Who Your gifts unnumbered claim,
Through the sharing of Your blessings
    May bring glory to Your name.
 
By Your Word You formed creation
    Filled with creatures large and small;
As we tend that endless treasure
    May our care encircle all. Refrain
 
In His earthly life, our Savior
    Knew the care of faithful friends;
May our deeds of dedication
    Offer love that never ends. Refrain
 
Heav’nly Father, may our caring
    Bear the imprint of Your grace;
With the Son and Holy Spirit,
    Praise be Yours in ev’ry place! Refrain

Faithful Stewards of God's Gifts

The focus for the third week of our stewardship emphasis is “Generous and Ready to Share.”  Love is what motivated God to give, and, because of His love,  He didn’t give leftovers; He gave His best.  He gave us what we needed — His own Son.  “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).  Through faith, we begin to understand God’s tremendous love for us, and we are compelled to share with others the love of God that fills our hearts.  The more fully we understand how richly God has blessed us, the deeper will be our love and gratitude to Him and the greater will be our desire to respond in generous giving of all that we have to offer — not just our monetary gifts but our time, efforts, and abilities as well.
 

The Joy of Unselfish Giving
Time is not measured
            by the years that you live
But by the deeds that you do
            and the joy that you give—
And each day as it comes
            brings a chance to each one
To love to the fullest
            leaving nothing undone
That would brighten the life
            or lighten the load
Of some weary traveler
            lost on life’s Road—
So what does it matter
            how long we may live
If as long as we live
            we unselfishly give
Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together,
 and running over… (Luke 6:38). 
(Helen Steiner Rice)
