May you have a very blessed weekend and have time to meditate on the watchword for this sixth Sunday after Easter called Exaudi: And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. (Joh 12:32 KJV)
A collect for Exaudi: O King of glory, Lord of hosts, uplifted in triumph far above all heavens, leave us not without consolation but send us the Spirit of truth whom You promised from the Father; for You live and reign with Him and the Holy Spirit, one God now and forever. (LSB Altar Book Pg.900)
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)
