14.05.31 exegesis easter 7

  1. 1. For where God built a church, there the Devil would also build a chapel. Martin Luther
  2. 2. 1 Christ is the world’s Redeemer, The lover of the pure, The fount of heav'nly wisdom, Our trust and hope secure, The armor of His soldiers, The Lord of earth and sky; Our health while we are living, Our life when we shall die. 2 Christ has our host surrounded With clouds of martyrs bright, Who wave their palms in triumph And fire us for the fight. This Christ the cross ascended To save a world undone, And, suff'ring for the sinful, Our full redemption won. 3 Down in the realms of darkness He strode in victory, And at the hour appointed He rose triumphantly. And now, to heav'n ascended, He sits upon the throne Whence He had ne'er departed, His Father's and His own. 4 Glory to God the Father, The unbegotten One; All honor be to Jesus, His sole begotten Son, And to the Holy Spirit-- The perfect Trinity. Let all the worlds give answer: Amen! So let it be.
  3. 3. 6 The Son obeyed His Father's will, Was born of virgin mother; And God's good pleasure to fulfill, He came to be my brother. His royal pow'r disguised He bore; A servant's form, like mine, He wore To lead the devil captive. 7 To me He said: "Stay close to Me, I am your rock and castle. Your ransom I Myself will be; For you I strive and wrestle. For I am yours, and you are Mine, And where I am you may remain; The foe shall not divide us. 8 "Though he will shed My precious blood, Me of My life bereaving, All this I suffer for your good; Be steadfast and believing. Life will from death the vict'ry win; My innocence shall bear your sin, And you are blest forever. 9 "Now to My Father I depart, From earth to heav'n ascending, And, heav'nly wisdom to impart, The Holy Spirit sending; In trouble He will comfort you And teach you always to be true And into truth shall guide you. 10 "What I on earth have done and taught, Guide all your life and teaching; So shall the kingdom's work be wrought And honored in your preaching. But watch lest foes with base alloy The heav'nly treausre should destroy; This final word I leave you."
  4. 4. Let us pray for the whole Church of God in Christ Jesus and for all people according to their needs. Brief silence Risen Lord Jesus, as You guided the apostles to choose Matthias, we praise You for blessing us with pastors who faithfully proclaim Your Word and rightly administer the Sacraments. Uphold congregations without pastors and congregations who are calling pastors. Provide them with faithful and loving undershepherds, that they may continue to gladly receive the gifts that You give through Word and Sacrament. Strengthen pastors who struggle without a congregation, reaffirm them in their vocation, assure them of Your presence and provide for their needs according to Your will. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer. Ascended Lord Jesus, You rule and reign at God’s right hand. Your rule extends into this world through the authority that You have granted to its leaders. Let their rule reflect Yours, that we may live peaceable lives, free to worship You without fear, and be moved to love and serve our neighbors… Triumphant Lord Jesus, You send the Holy Spirit and bring Your Church alive. Grant us passion for the lost. Empower us to speak the Word that convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment. As we boldly speak Your name, send Your Spirit to call unbelievers by the Gospel, enlighten and sanctify them in the true faith, that in knowing Your Father as the only true God, they would receive eternal life through You…
  5. 5. Exalted Lord Jesus, bless the work of our missionaries. Bring forth Your harvest from the seeds that they sow. Support them and all who endure fiery trials for Your name. As they shine the light of the Gospel into the hostile darkness where the devil prowls unsatisfied, guard them as those who bear Your cross. Let them rejoice that in tribulation, distress, persecution, famine, nakedness, peril or sword, they share in Your very suffering… Glorified Lord Jesus, You have saved us by Your grace. We pray for those who are sick, those who are distressed, those whose hearts are heavy, those whose lives are burdened, those who mourn and all who have requested our prayers [especially ________________ ]. Grant them healing in accordance with Your will, strength and mercy according to their needs, and Your peace that passes understanding… OTHER PETITIONS Omnipotent Lord Jesus, as You come to us in Your true body and blood, restore, confirm, strengthen and establish us in the faith. Forgive our sins, and guard our souls as we await the day when we will join in Your eternal wedding feast on that mountain where You swallow up death forever… Into Your hands, O Lord, we commend ourselves and all for whom we pray, trusting in Your mercy for the sake of Your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
  6. 6. Our Lord Jesus Is with Us in the Upper Room of His Church on Earth
