The Lutheran Order of Service for the last Sunday in the Church year is available here in isiZulu and seTswana. Today it comes with a sermon based on God’s word from the gospel of St. Mark in the thirteenth chapter the verses 31-37 written by missionary Kurt-Günter Tiedemann (Tarmstedt, Germany) in isiZulu (wz1356131124 n Tr 27) and translated as usual into seTswana (wt1356131124 n Tr 27) by my father Rev. E.A.W.Weber DD (Welbedacht, KZN).
The readings for this Sunday are:
Old Testament: Isaiah 65:17-19(20-22)23-25
The Epistle: Revelation 21:1-7
The Gospel: Matthew 25:1-13
The liturgical colour is green.
May you have a very blessed weekend and have time to meditate on the watchword for this week: “Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning” (Luk 12:35 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 faithfully according to his most precious revelation of his will and promises in both the Old and New Testament! 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)
