The Lutheran Order of Service for this 21st Sunday after the high holiday of the most holy Trinity is available here in isiZulu and seTswana. Today it comes with a sermon based on God’s word from the gospel of the apostle St. John in the 15th chapter the verses 9-12 (13-17) written and translated in both isiZulu (wz1351131020 n Tr 21) and seTswana (wt1351131020 n Tr 21) by my father Rev. E.A.W.Weber DD (Welbedacht, KZN).
The readings for this Sunday are:
Old Testament: Jeremaih 29,1.4-7.10-14
The Epistle: Ephesians 6,10-17
The Gospel: Matthew 5,38-48
The liturgical colour is green.
May you have a very blessed weekend and have time to meditate on the watchword for the Sunday: Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. (Rom 12:21 NIV) – and if you are called to preach this weekend, may the triune God give you joy and strength, enthusiasm and wisdom, knowledge and insight – and the true words and pictures to preach his holy will purely and his promises faithfully! However if you are not preaching, but listening – then listen as if God is talking to you + His precious gospel is “the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes.” (Rom 1:16 NIV)
