Pastors Message of Joy
MOUNT OF THE HOLY CROSS LUTHERAN CHURCH
Service June 21, 2020. 3rd Sunday after Pentecost
We welcome Rev. Matt Bersagel
God does not promise that the path of the disciple will be easy. Jeremiah feels the pain of the rejection from those who do not want to hear what he has to say. Jesus declares that his words may bring stark division. Even so, we need not be afraid for God accounts for each hair on our heads. Though we may experience rejection, frustration, division and death, God’s grace and Love make us a new creation each day. Marked with the cross and filled with the holy food, we are sent from worship to witness to Christ in the world.
Prayer of the Day:
Teach us good Lord God, to serve you as you deserve, to give and not to count the cost, to fight and not to heed the wounds, to toil and not to seek for rest, to labor and not to ask for reward, except that of knowing that we do your will, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, Amen
First Reading: Jeremiah 20:7-13
Jeremiah accuses God of forcing him into ministry that only brings him contempt and persecution. Yet Jeremiah is confident that God will be a strong protector against his enemies and commits his life into God’s hands.
Second reading: Romans 6:1b-11
In baptism we were incorporated into the reality of Christ’s deaths and resurrection. We have been made new in Christ through his death and resurrection to live freed from sin.
GOSPEL: Matthew 10:24-39
Jesus Warns his disciples that their ministry in his name will meet with opposition. However, he assures them that they need not fear for the truth will come to light. Life is found in Christ.
