The Lutheran Order of Service for the third Sunday in Lent (Okuli) is available here in isiZulu and seTswana. Today it comes with a sermon based on God’s word from 1.Kings chapter 19 verses 1-8 (9-13a) written by Rev. K-G. Tiedemann (Tarmstedt, Germany) in isiZulu (wz1420140323 Okuli) and translated as usual into seTswana (wt1420140323 Okuli) by my father Rev. E.A.W.Weber DD (Welbedacht, KZN).
The readings for this Sunday are:
Old Testament: 1.Kings 19:1-8 (9-13a)
The Epistle: Ephesians 5:1-8a
The Gospel: Luke 9:57-62
The liturgical colour is purple.
May you have a very blessed weekend and have time to meditate on the watchword for this week: Jesus replied, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.” (Luk 9:62 NIV) 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)
