May you have a very blessed weekend and have time to meditate on the watchword for this fourth Sunday after Easter called Cantate: O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvellous things (Psa 98:1 KJV)
A collect for Cantate: O God, You make the minds of Your faithful to be of one will. Grant that we may love what You have commanded and desire what You promise, that among the many changes of this world our hearts may be fixed where true joys are found; through the same Jesus Christ Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God now and forever. (LSB Altar Book Pg.895)
If you are called to preach this weekend, may the triune God give you joy and strength, 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)
