Word & Worship

August 23, 2020

Divine Service - Setting Two
Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost
Confirmation Sunday 

 

Theme
The counsels of God are permanent – impeccable exhortations from His mind, His will, His heart, and His actions in Christ.  Everything that proceeds from God’s wisdom is congruent.  Barren wombs are filled with offspring.  Desolate wastelands are restored.  God’s Word resurrects what once was decimated.  These astonishing interventions transform our lives so that we may unconditionally invest our sanctified bodies, mind, and gifts all to the glory of God!
 
Hymn of Invocation - LSB 689 Let Me Be Thine Forever
Let me be Thine forever,
    My faithful God and Lord;
Let me forsake Thee never
    Nor wander from Thy Word.
Lord, do not let me waver,
    But give me steadfastness,
And for such grace forever
    Thy holy name I’ll bless.
 
Lord Jesus, my salvation,
    My light, my life divine,
My only consolation,
    O make me wholly Thine!
For Thou hast dearly bought me
    With blood and bitter pain.
Let me, since Thou hast sought me,
    Eternal life obtain.
 
And Thou, O Holy Spirit,
    My comforter and guide,
Grant that in Jesus’ merit
    I always may confide,
Him to the end confessing
    Whom I have known by faith.
Give me Thy constant blessing
    And grant a Christian death.

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.
 
Introit - Psalm 2:6–7; 117; antiphon: Psalm 115:18
But we will | bless the Lord*
   from this time forth and forevermore. | Praise the Lord!
As for me, I have
| set my King*
   on Zion, my | holy hill.
I will tell of
| the decree:*
   The Lord said to me, “You are my Son; today I have be- | gotten you.”
Praise the Lord, all
| nations!*
   Extol him, all | peoples!
For great is his steadfast
| love toward us,*
   and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. | Praise the Lord!
Glory be to the Father and
| to the Son*
   and to the Holy | Spirit;
as it was in the be-
| ginning,*
   is now, and will be forever. | Amen.
But we will
| bless the Lord*
   from this time forth and forevermore. | Praise the Lord!
 
Kyrie - Mark 10:47
A   In peace let us pray to the Lord.
C   Lord, have mercy.
A   For the peace from above and for our salvation let us pray to the Lord.
C   Lord, have mercy.
A   For the peace of the whole world, for the well-being of the Church of God, and for the unity of all let us pray to the Lord.
C   Lord, have mercy.
A   For this holy house and for all who offer here their worship and praise let us pray to the Lord.
C   Lord, have mercy.
A   Help, save, comfort, and defend us, gracious Lord.
C   Amen.
 
This Is the Feast - Revelation 5:12–13; 19:5–9
A   This is the feast of victory for our God. Alleluia.
C   Worthy is Christ, the Lamb who was slain, whose blood set us free to be people of God.
Power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and blessing and glory are His.
This is the feast of victory for our God. Alleluia.
Sing with all the people of God, and join in the hymn of all creation:
Blessing and honor and glory and might be to God and the Lamb forever. Amen.
This is the feast of victory for our God, for the Lamb who was slain has begun His reign.
Alleluia, alleluia.
 
Salutation and Collect of the Day
P   The Lord be with you.
C   And also with you.
 
P   Let us pray.
Almighty God, whom to know is everlasting life, grant us to know Your Son, Jesus, to be the way, the truth, and the life that we may boldly confess Him to be the Christ and steadfastly walk in the way that leads to life eternal; 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 - Isaiah 51:1–6
“Listen to me, you who pursue righteousness,
    you who seek the Lord:
look to the rock from which you were hewn,
    and to the quarry from which you were dug.
Look to Abraham your father
    and to Sarah who bore you;
for he was but one when I called him,
    that I might bless him and multiply him.
For the Lord comforts Zion;
    he comforts all her waste places
and makes her wilderness like Eden,
    her desert like the garden of the Lord;
joy and gladness will be found in her,
    thanksgiving and the voice of song.
“Give attention to me, my people,
    and give ear to me, my nation;
for a law will go out from me,
    and I will set my justice for a light to the peoples.
My righteousness draws near,
    my salvation has gone out,
    and my arms will judge the peoples;
the coastlands hope for me,
    and for my arm they wait.
Lift up your eyes to the heavens,
    and look at the earth beneath;
for the heavens vanish like smoke,
    the earth will wear out like a garment,
    and they who dwell in it will die in like manner;
but my salvation will be forever,
    and my righteousness will never be dismayed.”
 
A   This is the Word of the Lord.
C   Thanks be to God.
 
Epistle - Romans 11:33—12:8
   Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!
“For who has known the mind of the Lord,
   or who has been his counselor?”
“Or who has given a gift to him
   that he might be repaid?”
For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.
   I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
   For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.
 
A   This is the Word of the Lord.
C   Thanks be to God.
 
Holy Gospel - Matthew 16:13–20
P   The Holy Gospel according to St. Matthew, the sixteenth chapter.
C   Glory to You, O Lord.
 
   Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” And they said, “Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” Then he strictly charged the disciples to tell no one that he was the Christ.
 
P   This is the Gospel of the Lord.
C   Praise to You, O Christ.
 
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 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.”

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 848 Lord, Whose Love through Humble Service
Lord, whose love through humble service
    Bore the weight of human need,
Who upon the cross, forsaken,
    Offered mercy’s perfect deed,
We, Your servants, bring the worship
    Not of voice alone, but heart,
Consecrating to Your purpose
    Ev’ry gift that You impart.
 
Still Your children wander homeless;
    Still the hungry cry for bread;
Still the captives long for freedom;
    Still in grief we mourn our dead.
As, O Lord, Your deep compassion
    Healed the sick and freed the soul,
Use the love Your Spirit kindles
    Still to save and make us whole.
 
As we worship, grant us vision,
    Till Your love’s revealing light
In its height and depth and greatness,
    Dawns upon our quickened sight,
Making known the needs and burdens
    Your compassion bids us bear,
Stirring us to tireless striving,
    Your abundant life to share.
 
Called by worship to Your service,
    Forth in Your dear name we go,
To the child, the youth, the aged,
    Love in living deeds to show;
Hope and health, goodwill and comfort,
    Counsel, aid, and peace we give,
That Your servants, Lord, in freedom
    May Your mercy know and live.

Hymn - LSB 622 Lord Jesus Christ, You Have Prepared
Lord Jesus Christ, You have prepared
    This feast for our salvation;
It is Your body and Your blood,
    And at Your invitation
As weary souls, with sin oppressed,
We come to You for needed rest,
    For comfort, and for pardon.
 
Yet, Savior, You are not confined
    To any habitation;
But You are present even now
    Here with Your congregation.
Firm as a rock this truth shall stand,
Unmoved by any daring hand
    Or subtle craft and cunning.
 
Though reason cannot understand,
    Yet faith this truth embraces:
Your body, Lord, is even now
    At once in many places.
I leave to You how this can be;
Your Word alone suffices me;
    I trust its truth unfailing.
 
Grant that we worthily receive
    Your supper, Lord, our Savior,
And, truly grieving for our sins,
    May prove by our behavior
That we are thankful for Your grace
And day by day may run our race,
    In holiness increasing.

Hymn - LSB 845 Where Charity and Love Prevail
Where charity and love prevail
    There God is ever found;
Brought here together by Christ’s love
    By love are we thus bound.
 
With grateful joy and holy fear
    His charity we learn;
Let us with heart and mind and soul
    Now love Him in return.
 
Forgive we now each other’s faults
    As we our faults confess,
And let us love each other well
    In Christian holiness.
 
Let strife among us be unknown;
    Let all contention cease;
Be God’s the glory that we seek;
    Be ours His holy peace.
 
Let us recall that in our midst
    Dwells Christ, His only Son;
As members of His body joined
    We are in Him made one.
 
For love excludes no race or clan
    That names the Savior’s name;
His family embraces all
    Whose Father is the same.

Distribution Hymn - LSB 786 Lord of All Good
Lord of all good, our gifts we bring You now;
    Use them Your holy purpose to fulfill.
Tokens of love and pledges they shall be
    That our whole life is offered to Your will.
 
We give our minds to understand Your ways;
    Hands, eyes, and voice to serve Your great design;
Hearts with the flame of Your own love ablaze—
    Thus for Your glory all our pow’rs combine.
 
   Father, whose bounty all creation shows;
    Christ, by whose willing sacrifice we live;
Spirit, from whom all life in fullness flows:
    To You with grateful hearts ourselves we give.

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.
We give thanks to You, almighty God, that You have refreshed us through this salutary gift, and we implore You that of Your mercy You would strengthen us through the same in faith toward You and in fervent love toward one another; 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 544 O Love, How Deep
O love, how deep, how broad, how high,
Beyond all thought and fantasy,
That God, the Son of God, should take
Our mortal form for mortals’ sake!
 
He sent no angel to our race,
Of higher or of lower place,
But wore the robe of human frame,
And to this world Himself He came.
 
For us baptized, for us He bore
His holy fast and hungered sore;
For us temptation sharp He knew;
For us the tempter overthrew.
 
For us He prayed; for us He taught;
For us His daily works He wrought,
By words and signs and actions thus
Still seeking not Himself but us.
 
For us by wickedness betrayed,
For us, in crown of thorns arrayed,
He bore the shameful cross and death;
For us He gave His dying breath.
 
For us He rose from death again;
For us He went on high to reign;
For us He sent His Spirit here
To guide, to strengthen, and to cheer.
 
All glory to our Lord and God
For love so deep, so high, so broad;
The Trinity whom we adore
Forever and forevermore.
