Sermon                                          “Add to your faith – no idle trust”

Make every effort:
Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. (Romans 12:11)

But just as you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us—see that you also excel in this grace of giving. I am not commanding you, but I want to test the sincerity of your love by comparing it with the earnestness of others. (2 Corinthians 8:7-8)

Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt I had to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints. (Jude 3)

Now may He Who from the dead
Brought the Shepherd of the sheep
Jesus Christ, our King and Head,
All our souls in safety keep.

May He teach us to fulfill
What is pleasing in His sight;
Perfect us in all His will,
And preserve us day and night.

To that dear Redeemer’s praise,
Who the covenant sealed with blood,
Let our hearts and voices raise
Loud thanksgivings to our God.

the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you;
