Online Ministry for the Week 0528 - 0603 2018

  • Almighty God, in you are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Open our eyes that we may see the wonders of your Word; and give us grace that we may clearly understand and freely choose the way of your wisdom; through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Psalm 81:1-10
81:1 Sing aloud to God our strength; shout for joy to the God of Jacob.
81:2 Raise a song, sound the tambourine, the sweet lyre with the harp.
81:3 Blow the trumpet at the new moon, at the full moon, on our festal day.
81:4 For it is a statute for Israel, an ordinance of the God of Jacob.
81:5 He made it a decree in Joseph, when he went out over the land of Egypt. I hear a voice I had not known:
81:6 "I relieved your shoulder of the burden; your hands were freed from the basket.
81:7 In distress you called, and I rescued you; I answered you in the secret place of thunder; I tested you at the waters of Meribah. Selah
81:8 Hear, O my people, while I admonish you; O Israel, if you would but listen to me!
81:9 There shall be no strange god among you; you shall not bow down to a foreign god.
81:10 I am the LORD your God, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt. Open your mouth wide and I will fill it.
Note: For the readings after Pentecost: the first reading pairs with the semi-continuous strand of texts; the second, with the complementary.
Mentors and Coaches
Put yourself aside, and help others get ahead. Don't be obsessed with getting your own advantage. Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand. Philippians 2:4 (The Message)
What do Peyton Manning, Oprah Winfrey, Michael Jordan, George W. Bush, and Olympic Gold medalist Apolo Ohno all have in common? Your first thought might be success in their particular field. While that is true, all of them attribute their personal success to one thing: having a buddy, mentor, or coach who brought the best out of them. They each had someone in their lives who instructed, encouraged, pushed, trained, and taught them to pursue excellence, assisting them in reaching their dreams.
—Exercise Physiologist Sean Foy
Holy God, you call us by name and invite us into the life of faithfulness and obedience. When we don't hear your voice or let other voices drown out your call, you still persist. As we offer our gifts this morning, may we bring not only our wealth but our whole lives to your altar, ready to listen to where you would send us, for the sake of your Kingdom and Christ's coming. Amen.
