Fourth Sunday after Pentecost,
June 17, 2018
The first reading, Ezekiel 17:22-24, uses messianic imagery to explain how the Lord will choose someone from Judah’s royal family (the cedar tree) to reign over all creation This tree will be planted on Mount Zion, the location of the holy temple.
In the second reading 2Corinthians 5:14-21, we are reminded that “as forgiven sinners”, we are new creations in Christ and entrusted with the ministry of reconciliation.
The Gospel reading, Mark 4:26-34, relates Jesus’ Parable of the Mustard Seed. For those who are concerned, frustrated, or even depressed by small beginnings, the parable is clearly intended as a word of encouragement.
May God bless our worship.
Saturday Worship Theme
We continue today a worship series entitled “Enlightened by the Spirit.” The series considers the ways in which the Holy Spirit calls us through the gospel, enlightens us with the gifts, makes us holy and keeps us in the true faith. This week’s emphasis is on Jesus as a teacher. The sermon is presented by Pastor Rich Ajer.
