March 7, 2021EPISTLE (“Letter to the Church”)Third Sunday in Lent71 Corinthians 1:18-25For the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing,but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.For it is written,“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the discernment of the discerning I will thwart.”Where is the one who is wise?Where is the scribe?Where is the debater of this age?Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, God decided,through the foolishness of our proclamation, to save those who believe.For Jews demand signsand Greeks desire wisdom,but we proclaim Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles,but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks,Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.For God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom,and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength.GOSPELJohn 2:13-22NRSVThe Passover of the Jews was near, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. In the temple he foundpeople selling cattle, sheep, and doves, and the money changers seated at their tables. Making awhip of cords, he drove all of them out of the temple, both the sheep and the cattle. He alsopoured out the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. He told those who wereselling the doves, “Take these things out of here! Stop making my Father’s house a marketplace!”His disciples remembered that it was written, “Zeal for your house will consume me.” The Jewsthen said to him, “What sign can you show us for doing this?” Jesus answered them, “Destroy thistemple, and in three days I will raise it up.” The Jews then said, “This temple has been underconstruction for forty-six years, and will you raise it up in three days?” But he was speaking of thetemple of his body. After he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had saidthis; and they believed the scripture and the word that Jesus had spoken.
March 7, 2021Third Sunday in Lent8HEBREW SCRIPTUREExodus 20: 1-4, 7-17Then God spoke all these words: I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, outof the house of slavery;You shall have no other gods before me.You shall not make for yourself an idol, whether in the form of anything that is in heaven above, orthat is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. . . You shall not make wrongful use of the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not acquitanyone who misuses his name.Remember the Sabbath day, and keep it holy.Six days you shall labor and do all your work. But the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God;you shall not do any work—you, your son or your daughter, your male or female slave, your livestock,or the alien resident in your towns. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and allthat is in them, but rested the seventh day; therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day andconsecrated it.Honor your father and your mother, so that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God isgiving you.You shall not murder.You shall not commit adultery.You shall not steal.You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or male or femaleslave, or ox, or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.Thank you to our Worship LeadersOrganist:Liturgist:Videographer:Power Point:Council Ushers:Acolytes:Ministers:Pastor:Carter HormanTerry LasackJulie HoffmeierDiane EsbaumJanice Strackbein / Diane EsbaumTucker and Ellie CoppessAll believersRev.
