Divine Service - Setting Four
Reformation Sunday

 

Theme
The Law leaves us speechless, for it condemns us and holds us accountable to God.  By the Law, every sin is unmasked, every sinner declared guilty.  In Christ, by His blood, we receive faith.  This faith justifies us apart from the works of the Law.  Thanks be to God that Christ gives us this Gospel.  By it, sin is forgiven and sinners declared innocent.  This is our freedom in Christ proclaimed throughout every nation, tribe, language, and people.
 
8:00  Hymn of Invocation - LSB 566 By Grace I’m Saved
By grace I’m saved, grace free and boundless;
    My soul, believe and doubt it not.
Why stagger at this word of promise?
    Has Scripture ever falsehood taught?
No! Then this word must true remain:
By grace you too will life obtain.
 
By grace! None dare lay claim to merit;
    Our works and conduct have no worth.
God in His love sent our Redeemer,
    Christ Jesus, to this sinful earth;
His death did for our sins atone,
And we are saved by grace alone.
 
By grace God’s Son, our only Savior,
    Came down to earth to bear our sin.
Was it because of your own merit
    That Jesus died your soul to win?
No, it was grace, and grace alone,
That brought Him from His heav’nly throne.
 
By grace! This ground of faith is certain;
    As long as God is true, it stands.
What saints have penned by inspiration,
    What in His Word our God commands,
Our faith in what our God has done
Depends on grace—grace through His Son.
 
By grace to timid hearts that tremble,
    In tribulation’s furnace tried,
By grace, in spite of fear and trouble,
    The Father’s heart is open wide.
Where could I help and strength secure
If grace were not my anchor sure?
 
By grace! On this I’ll rest when dying;
    In Jesus’ promise I rejoice;
For though I know my heart’s condition,
    I also know my Savior’s voice.
My heart is glad, all grief has flown
Since I am saved by grace alone.

10:30  Hymn - LSB 590 Baptized into Your Name Most Holy
Baptized into Your name most holy,
    O Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
I claim a place, though weak and lowly,
    Among Your saints, Your chosen host.
Buried with Christ and dead to sin,
Your Spirit now shall live within.
 
My loving Father, here You take me
    To be henceforth Your child and heir.
My faithful Savior, here You make me
    The fruit of all Your sorrows share.
O Holy Spirit, comfort me
When threat’ning clouds around I see.
 
My faithful God, You fail me never;
    Your promise surely will endure.
O cast me not away forever
    If words and deeds become impure.
Have mercy when I come defiled;
Forgive, lift up, restore Your child.
 
All that I am and love most dearly—
    Receive it all, O Lord, from me.
Let me confess my faith sincerely;
    Help me Your faithful child to be!
Let nothing that I am or own
Serve any will but Yours alone.

10:30  Holy Baptism
Baptized today is Claire Grace Volmerding, infant daughter of Matt & Jordyn Volmerding.  Sponsor is Heather Volmerding
 
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 - Psalm 124:8; Psalm 130:3–4; Luke 18:13
P   Our help is in the name of the Lord,
C   who made heaven and earth.
 
P   If You, O Lord, kept a record of sins, O Lord, who could stand?
C   But with You there is forgiveness; therefore You are feared.
 
P   Since we are gathered to hear God’s Word, call upon Him in prayer and praise, and receive the body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ in the fellowship of this altar, let us first consider our unworthiness and confess before God and one another that we have sinned in thought, word, and deed, and that we cannot free ourselves from our sinful condition. Together as His people let us take refuge in the infinite mercy of God, our heavenly Father, seeking His grace for the sake of Christ, and saying: God, be merciful to me, a sinner.
 
Confession of Sins
C   Almighty God, have mercy upon us, forgive us our sins, and lead us to everlasting life. 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.
 
8:00  Introit - Psalm 34:1–2, 11, 22; antiphon: Psalm 119:46
I will speak of your testimonies before kings, [O Lord,]
   and shall not be put to shame.
I will bless the Lord at all times;
   his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul makes its boast in the Lord;
   let the humble hear and be glad.
Come, O children, listen to me;
   I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
The Lord redeems the life of his servants;
   none of those who take refuge in him will be condemned.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son
   and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning,

   is now, and will be forever. Amen.
I will speak of your testimonies before kings, [O Lord,]
   and shall not be put to shame.
 
8:00  Kyrie - Mark 10:47
C   Lord, have mercy;
Christ, have mercy;
Lord, have mercy.
 
Gloria in Excelsis - LSB 947 All Glory Be to God on High
All glory be to God on high
    And thanks for all His favor;
No harm can touch or terrify
    A child of God forever.
God shows His good and gracious will
And grants His peace, the world to fill—
    All strife at last has ended.
 
We praise and laud and worship You;
    We give You thanks forever,
O Father, for Your rule is true
    And just and changes never.
With boundless pow’r, Your mighty reign
Fulfills whatever You ordain.
    Lord, grant us ev’ry blessing!
 
O Jesus Christ, the only Son
    Begotten of the Father,
Your saving death has made us one
    With God and with each other.
O Lamb of God, to You on high
In our distress we sinners cry,
    Have mercy on us, amen!
 
O Holy Spirit, our delight
    And source of consolation,
Protect us from the devil’s might
    Through Jesus, our salvation,
Who by His death upon a tree
Has rescued us from misery:
    To this we hold forever.

Salutation and Collect of the Day
P   The Lord be with you.
C   And also with you.
 
P   Let us pray.
Almighty and gracious Lord, pour out Your Holy Spirit on Your faithful people. Keep us steadfast in Your grace and truth, protect and deliver us in times of temptation, defend us against all enemies, and grant to Your Church Your saving peace; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
C   Amen.
 
First Reading - Revelation 14:6–7
   Then I saw another angel flying directly overhead, with an eternal gospel to proclaim to those who dwell on earth, to every nation and tribe and language and people. And he said with a loud voice, “Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come, and worship him who made heaven and earth, the sea and the springs of water.”
 
A   This is the Word of the Lord.
C   Thanks be to God.
 
Epistle - Romans 3:19–28
   Now we know that whatever the law says it speaks to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and the whole world may be held accountable to God. For by works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin.
   But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it— the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins. It was to show his righteousness at the present time, so that he might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.
   Then what becomes of our boasting? It is excluded. By what kind of law? By a law of works? No, but by the law of faith. For we hold that one is justified by faith apart from works of the law.
 
A   This is the Word of the Lord.
C   Thanks be to God.
 
Alleluia and Verse - John 20:31
C   Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.
      These things are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God.
      Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.
 
Holy Gospel - John 8:31–36
P   The Holy Gospel according to St. John, the eighth chapter.
C   Glory to You, O Lord.
 
   So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” They answered him, “We are offspring of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone. How is it that you say, ‘You will become free’?”
   Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”
 
P   This is the Gospel of the Lord.
C   Praise to You, O Christ.
 
8:00  Nicene Creed
C   I believe in one God,
     the Father Almighty,
     maker of heaven and earth
          and of all things visible and invisible.
 
And in one Lord Jesus Christ,
     the only-begotten Son of God,
     begotten of His Father before all worlds,
     God of God, Light of Light,
     very God of very God,
     begotten, not made,
     being of one substance with the Father,
     by whom all things were made;
     who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven
     and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary
     and was made man;
     and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate.
     He suffered and was buried.
     And the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures
          and ascended into heaven
     and sits at the right hand of the Father.
     And He will come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead,
     whose kingdom will have no end.
 
And I believe in the Holy Spirit,
     the Lord and giver of life,
     who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
     who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified,
     who spoke by the prophets.
     And I believe in one holy Christian and apostolic Church,
     I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins,
     and I look for the resurrection of the dead
     and the life T of the world to come. Amen.
 
Hymn of the Day - LSB 656 A Mighty Fortress Is Our God
A mighty fortress is our God,
    A trusty shield and weapon;
He helps us free from ev’ry need
    That hath us now o’ertaken.
The old evil foe
Now means deadly woe;
    Deep guile and great might
    Are his dread arms in fight;
On earth is not his equal.
 
With might of ours can naught be done,
    Soon were our loss effected;
But for us fights the valiant One,
    Whom God Himself elected.
Ask ye, Who is this?
Jesus Christ it is,
    Of Sabaoth Lord,
    And there’s none other God;
He holds the field forever.
 
Though devils all the world should fill,
    All eager to devour us,
We tremble not, we fear no ill;
    They shall not overpow’r us.
This world’s prince may still
Scowl fierce as he will,
    He can harm us none.
    He’s judged; the deed is done;
One little word can fell him.
 
The Word they still shall let remain
    Nor any thanks have for it;
He’s by our side upon the plain
    With His good gifts and Spirit.
And take they our life,
Goods, fame, child, and wife,
    Though these all be gone,
    Our vict’ry has been won;
The Kingdom ours remaineth.

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.
 
P   It is truly meet, 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, out of love for His fallen creation, humbled Himself by taking on the form of a servant, becoming obedient unto death, even death upon a cross. Risen from the dead, He has freed us from eternal death and given us life everlasting. 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 God of Sabaoth adored;
Heav’n and earth with full acclaim shout the glory of Your name.
Sing hosanna in the highest, sing hosanna to the Lord;
Truly blest is He who comes in the name of the Lord!
 
Lord’s Prayer
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
P   The peace of the Lord be with you always.
C   Amen.
 
Agnus Dei - John 1:29
 O Jesus Christ, true Lamb of God,
    You take the sin of the world away;
    O Jesus Christ, true Lamb of God,
    Have mercy on us, Lord, we pray.
 
    O Jesus Christ, true Lamb of God,
    You take the sin of the world away;
    Have mercy on us, Jesus Christ,
    And grant us peace, O Lord, we pray.

Hymn - LSB 744 Amazing Grace
Amazing grace—how sweet the sound—
    That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost but now am found,
    Was blind but now I see!
 
The Lord has promised good to me,
    His Word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be
    As long as life endures.
 
Through many dangers, toils, and snares
    I have already come;
His grace has brought me safe thus far,
    His grace will lead me home.
 
Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail
    And mortal life shall cease,
Amazing grace shall then prevail
    In heaven’s joy and peace.
 
When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
    Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
    Than when we’d first begun.

Hymn - LSB 655 Lord, Keep Us Steadfast in Your Word
Lord, keep us steadfast in Your Word;
Curb those who by deceit or sword
Would wrest the kingdom from Your Son
And bring to naught all He has done.
 
Lord Jesus Christ, Your pow’r make known,
For You are Lord of lords alone;
Defend Your holy Church that we
May sing Your praise eternally.
 
O Comforter of priceless worth,
Send peace and unity on earth;
Support us in our final strife
And lead us out of death to life.

Hymn - LSB 582 God’s Word Is Our Great Heritage
God’s Word is our great heritage
    And shall be ours forever;
To spread its light from age to age
    Shall be our chief endeavor.
Through life it guides our way,
In death it is our stay.
Lord, grant, while worlds endure,
We keep its teachings pure
    Throughout all generations.

Hymn - LSB 794 The Lord, My God, Be Praised
The Lord, my God, be praised,
    My light, my life from heaven;
My maker, who to me
    Has soul and body given;
My Father, who will shield
    And keep me day by day
And make each moment yield
    New blessings on my way.
 
The Lord, my God, be praised,
    My trust, my life from heaven,
The Father’s own dear Son,
    Whose life for me was given,
Who for my sin atoned
    With His most precious blood
And gives to me by faith
    The highest heav’nly good.
 
The Lord, my God, be praised,
    My hope, my life from heaven,
The Spirit, whom the Son
    In love to me has given.
His grace revives my heart
    And gives my spirit pow’r,
Help, comfort, and support
    In sorrow’s gloomy hour.
 
The Lord, my God, be praised,
    My God, the ever-living,
To whom the heav’nly host
    Their laud and praise are giving.
The Lord, my God, be praised,
    In whose great name I boast,
God Father, God the Son,
    And God the Holy Ghost.

Nunc Dimittis - Luke 2:29–32
C  O Lord, now let Your servant
    Depart in heav’nly peace,
    For I have seen the glory
    Of Your redeeming grace:
    A light to lead the Gentiles
    Unto Your holy hill,
    The glory of Your people,
    Your chosen Israel.
 
    All glory to the Father,
    All glory to the Son,
    All glory to the Spirit,
    Forever Three in One;
    For as in the beginning,
    Is now, shall ever be,
    God’s triune name resounding
    Through all eternity.
 
Benedicamus - Psalm 103:1
A   Let us bless the Lord.
C   Thanks be to God.
 
Benediction
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 645 Built on the Rock
Built on the Rock the Church shall stand
    Even when steeples are falling.
Crumbled have spires in ev’ry land;
    Bells still are chiming and calling,
Calling the young and old to rest,
But above all the souls distressed,
    Longing for rest everlasting.
 
Surely in temples made with hands
    God, the Most High, is not dwelling;
High above earth His temple stands,
    All earthly temples excelling.
Yet He who dwells in heav’n above
Chooses to live with us in love,
    Making our bodies His temple.
 
We are God’s house of living stones,
    Built for His own habitation.
He through baptismal grace us owns
    Heirs of His wondrous salvation.
Were we but two His name to tell,
Yet He would deign with us to dwell
    With all His grace and His favor.
 
Here stands the font before our eyes,
    Telling how God has received us.
The_altar recalls Christ’s sacrifice
    And what His Supper here gives us.
Here sound the Scriptures that proclaim
Christ yesterday, today, the same,
    And evermore, our Redeemer.
 
Grant, then, O God, Your will be done,
    That, when the church bells are ringing,
Many in saving faith may come
    Where Christ His message is bringing:
“I know My own; My own know Me.
You, not the world, My face shall see.
    My peace I leave with you. Amen.”

Faithful Stewards of God's Gifts

The theme for the first week of our stewardship emphasis is “Stewards of God’s Varied Grace.”  In our short time on earth, we are called by God to take care of His things.  He has made us His stewards.  A Christian steward is a child of God who realizes his/her role in life as a partner, a trustee, a manager, a caretaker, a temporary custodian of gifts that belong to God.  Through faith, we understand that all we have belongs to the One Who created us.  Being a steward is faith in action.  What a privilege and honor that God, Who has created us and recreated us in Baptism, chooses us to be His stewards.  In this honored position, we are expected to be responsible and accountable.  The Apostle Paul wrote, “Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found trustworthy” (1 Corinthians 4:2).  With the help of the Holy Spirit, we, by God’s grace, become God-pleasing stewards. who receive God’s precious gifts gratefully, manage God’s gifts carefully and responsibly, share God’s precious gifts with others generously, and return God’s precious gifts joyfully with increase.

We Are God’s Stewards
What joy it is to know the heart of our Creator has been revealed to us in Jesus Christ.  What joy it is to know that our lives are of inestimable value, that we were created for a high and noble purpose, that we are called to a dynamic and meaningful existence, that our future is certain and full of promise.  That is what defines us.  This the good new that we are called to spread to the world

  • It is this God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—Who calls us to be stewards.
  • It is this God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—Whose resources we are called to steward.
  • It is this God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—Whose creation we are to care for and use.
  • It is this God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—Who defines for us who is our neighbor and how we are to respond to our neighbor’s need.
  • It is this God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—and none other to whom we are accountable.

Community

The 2020 Lutheran Mission Federation Reformation Rally has been moved to Immanuel Lutheran Church in Seymour to allow for more space for worshippers and to allow for social distancing. The Immanuel Board of Elders have been encouraging worshippers to wear face coverings on the way in and out of service, but they are not required during the service itself. The service will be live streamed on Immanuel's website, http://immanuelseymour.com. The service will start at 7 p.m. on October 25th, and will feature Rev. Sean Daenzer, LCMS Director of Worship and Chaplain at the International Center, as our preacher. Hope to see you there!
