Scripture Lesson:Ephesians 4:29-5:2

Preacher: J. Digman

Description: Reading           Ephesians 4:29-5:2 “Paul commands us not to act like the unmerciful servant, but rather: “Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice.” The Church is comprised of people who have been sealed for redemption, so let’s act like it! Not only kindness and compassion, but forgiveness is the primary mark of the Christian. We forgive because God forgave us in Christ. That makes us μιμηταὶ τοῦ θεοῦ, imitators of God. Every Old Testament sacrificial victim pointed ahead to the death of Christ, the fragrant offering and the atoning sacrifice that won our forgiveness and inspires our forgiveness for others” (Planning Christian Worship – Year A, p. 152). Speaker           J. Digman Psalm              Psalm 103 – “The Lord Is Kind and Merciful” (Haugen/Haas) Hymn              WHP 727 – “Where Charity and Love Prevail” Musician         Ensemble
