SUNDAY (June 14, 2020)
The Second Sunday after Pentecost
In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
“And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and affliction.” (Matthew 9:35)
“Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth! Serve the LORD with gladness! Come into his presence with thanksgiving.” (Psalm 100:1-2)
Thanksgiving , praise and serving is a response to the good and gracious gifts God has bestowed upon us. Even His creation makes a joyful noise to the Lord. God is the giver and we simply receive what He gives us, and respond in joyful thanksgiving and praise. Jesus is the ultimate giver and He, Himself is the gift, bringing us forgiveness of sins, eternal life and salvation.
