The First Hymn # 77             Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus

The Scripture Lesson          Colossians 3: 1-7

Since then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.

For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God, when Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.

Because of these, the wrath of God is coming. You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived.

 

This is the word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

*The First Hymn # 507                 Would You Bless Our Homes and Families

 The Scripture Lesson          Hebrews 13: 1-6

 

Keep on loving each other as brothers. Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it. Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.

Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said,

“Never will I leave you;

never will I forsake you.”

So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?”

 

This is the word of the Lord.

The Scripture Lesson                        Hebrews 11: 13-16

 

All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance. And they admitted that there were aliens and strangers on earth.

People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own. If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. Instead, they were longing for a better country – a heavenly one.

Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.

This is the word of God for the people of God.

Thanks be to God.

*The First Hymn # 416         My Faith Looks Up to Thee

 The Scripture Lesson                                                                 Dr. Cecil Chambers

Hebrews 11 8-12

By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.

By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise, for he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God.

By faith Abraham, even though he was past age – and Sarah herself was barren – was enabled to become a father because he considered him faithful who had made the promise.

 

This is the word of God for the people of God.

Thanks be to God.

My faith has found a resting place,

Not in device or creed;

I trust the ever living one,

His wounds for me shall plead.

I need no other argument,

I need no other plea,

It is enough that Jesus died,

and that He died for me.

*The First Hymn # 476               Be Strong in the Lord

 The Scripture Lesson          Hebrews 11: 4-7                                          Dr. Cecil Chambers

 

By faith Abel offered God a better sacrifice than Cain did. By faith he was commended as a righteous man, when God spoke well of his offerings. And by faith he still speaks, even though he is dead.

By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death; he could not be found, because God had taken him away, for before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God. And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family, by his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that comes by faith.

 

This is the word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for.

By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.

This is the word of God for the people of God.

Thanks be to God.
