Old Testament: Jeremiah 23:5-9
The Epistle: Romans 13:8-12

The liturgical colour is purple.
May you have a very blessed weekend and have time to meditate on the watchword for this week: “Behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation.” (Zec 9:9 KJV). 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)
