Scripture Lesson:John 12:20-33

Preacher: Prof. R. Wendland

Description: Reading: John 12:20-33 We properly distinguish between Christ’s state of humiliation and his state of exaltation.  But on this Sunday Jesus makes these astonishing declarations: He sees his glory as beginning with his ultimate humiliation.  He has come to suffer.  He has come to die.  As horrible as that will be, and as deeply as he will feel it all, he looks ahead to the fruit of his Passion.  And what is the fruit of his Passion?  That he can finally leave and be rid of us and all our foolishness and perversity?  No, not at all!  It is rather that by his cross he may draw us to himself!  That is his glory!  Can you think of anything more worthy of your attention this week? Speaker: Prof. R. Wendland Hymns: CW 400 v1-2 – “O God, O Lord of Heaven and Earth” CW 400 v3-4 – “O God, O Lord of Heaven and Earth” Prayer/Day: Eternal God and Father, help us to remember Jesus, who obeyed your will and bore the cross for our salvation that through his anguish, pain, and death we may receive forgiveness of sins and inherit eternal life; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
