Scripture Lesson:Mark 9:30–37

Preacher: Prof. Geiger

Description: Monday, September 20  Reading Mark 9:30–37  Jesus spoke plainly to the Twelve about his coming death. But the disciples didn’t understand. They could not reconcile in their heads the notion of their Lord suffering to the point of death. So what was their reaction to Christ’ powerful proclamation of his humiliation upon the cross? They argue about their pecking order. Christ proclaims full–strength truth: There is no room in the life of the Christian for such pride and arrogance. We are called to imitate and reflect the self-sacrificing love of Christ, not seeking to be served, but to serve; just as Christ sought not his own self-preservation, but the salvation of us all.  Speaker Prof. Geiger  Hymns 767:1–3 CW21 – “Lord of Glory, You Have Bought Us”  767:4 CW21 – “Lord of Glory, You Have Bought Us”  Prayer/Day Mercifully grant, O God, that your Holy Spirit may in all things direct and rule our hearts, for without your help we are unable to please you; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.  Musician N. Plocher
