Divine Service ~ November 20, 2016 ~ The Twenty-Seventy Sunday after Pentecost
“He will come to judge the living and the dead.” We confess it every Sunday, but often live like those are empty words. Number your days aright and gain a heart of wisdom! Jesus wants us to be the waiting Church—the Church that watches for her Savior and cries, “Come, Lord Jesus!” As we journey through these latter days, however, our vigilance slips, and our hearts grow drowsy because the bridegroom seems to be taking so long. So while we wait, the Church prays, “Keep us ever watchful for the coming of your Son that we may sit with him and all your holy ones at the marriage feast in heaven.” (Prayer of the Day)
