Old Testament: Genesis 4:1-16a

The Gospel: Luke 10:25-37
The liturgical colour is green.
May you have a very blessed weekend and have time to meditate on the watchword for this 13th Sunday after Trinity: Jesus Christ says: ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’ (Mat 25:40 ESV)
Almighty and merciful God, give us an increase of faith, hope and charity; and that we may obtain what You have promised, make us love, what You have commanded; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
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)
