The Old Testament Scriptures

Jeremiah 31: 27-34 –  In which the Lord promises that the days are surely coming when He will make a new covenant with the people of Israel and the people of Judah, whereon He will put His law in their hearts.  Notice that though the two Kingdoms of Israel and Judah have long been separated, the Lord remembers them as one people.

 

Psalm 119: 97-104 – In which the Psalmist glories in the law of God and all that it can do for him.  Also included is the favorite psalm line of all students: “…I have more understanding than all of my teachers…”

 

The New Testament Scriptures

 

2 Timothy 3: 14 – 4: 5 –  In which Paul informs Timothy that all scripture is inspired by God and useful for teaching, and urges him to proclaim the good news of God in Jesus Christ no matter the obstacles.

 

Luke 18: 1-8 –  In which Jesus tells his listeners the parable of the unjust judge, so as to instruct his followers how to pray always and not lose heart.

 

Special Music

Offertory Anthem – “Cantique de Jean Racine”  –  Gabriel Fauré

 

Lou Carol’s Organ Notes

Andante” and “Sonata 3: Allegro Maestoso” by Felix Mendelssohn

Today’s prelude is a soft, contemplative piece suitable for quiet reflection before worship.  Mendelssohn (1809-1847) was the first important composer of organ music after the death of J.S. Bach in 1750.
