PROCESSIONAL HYMN: LSB 748 I’m But a Stranger Here
INVOCATION
CONFESSION
Pastor: Dearly beloved, let us confess our sins to God our Father.
ALL: Most Merciful God, we confess that we are by nature sinful and unclean. We have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We justly deserve your present and eternal punishment. For the sake of your Son, Jesus Christ, have mercy on us. For¬give us, renew us, and lead us, so that we may delight in your will and walk in your ways to the glory of your holy name. Amen.
ABSOLUTION
KYRIE – spoken
ALL: Lord, have mercy; Christ, have mercy; Lord, have mercy.
(Please be seated)
GLORIA: LSB HYMN 790 (VS.1 & 2) “Praise to The Lord, The Almighty”
SALUTATION & COLLECT
Pastor: The Lord be with you.
People: And also with you.
Pastor: Let us pray
ALL: Blessed Lord, since You have caused all Holy Scriptures to be written for our learning, grant that we may so hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them that we may embrace and ever hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
FIRST READING: EZEKIEL 17:22-24
22 “‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I myself will take a shoot from the very top of a cedar and plant it; I will break off a tender sprig from its topmost shoots and plant it on a high and lofty mountain. 23 On the mountain heights of Israel I will plant it; it will produce branches and bear fruit and become a splendid cedar. Birds of every kind will nest in it; they will find shelter in the shade of its branches. 24 All the trees of the forest will know that I the LORD bring down the tall tree and make the low tree grow tall. I dry up the green tree and make the dry tree flourish.
Reader: This is the Word of the Lord.
People: Thanks be to God.
SECOND READING: 2 CORINTHIANS 5:1-10
1For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. 2 Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, 3 because when we are clothed, we will not be found naked. 4 For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. 5 Now the one who has fashioned us for this very purpose is God, who has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come. 6 Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. 7 For we live by faith, not by sight. 8 We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. 9 So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it. 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.
Reader: This is the Word of the Lord.
People: Thanks be to God.
(Please stand)
GOSPEL HYMN: Songs of Grace 104 This Is My Father’s World
GOSPEL READING: MARK 4:26-34
Pastor: The Gospel according to St. Mark, the third chapter.
People: Glory to You, O Lord.
(Please be seated)
26 He also said, “This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground. 27 Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. 28 All by itself the soil produces grain—first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head. 29 As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come.” 30 Again he said, “What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it? 31 It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. 32 Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.” 33 With many similar parables Jesus spoke the word to them, as much as they could understand. 34 He did not say anything to them without using a parable. But when he was alone with his own disciples, he explained everything.
Pastor: This is the Gospel of the Lord.
People: Praise to You, O Christ.
SERMON: Pastor Paul Speerbrecker
“A Tree Like No Other” Ezekiel 17:22-23

PRAYERS
ADMONITION TO COMMUNICANTS
Pastor: I exhort you in Christ that you give attention to the Testament of Christ in true faith, and above all take to heart the words with which Christ presents his body and blood to us for forgiveness; that you take note of and give thanks for the boundless love that he showed us when he saved us from the wrath of God, sin, death, and hell by his blood; and that you then externally receive the bread and wine, that is, his body and blood, as a guarantee and pledge. Let us then in his name, according to his command, and with his own words administer and receive the Testament.
LORD’S PRAYER

PEACE
Pastor: The peace of the Lord be with you always.
