I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment. (1 Corinthians 1:10 ESV)
Hymn ELH 583 God’s Word is Our Great Heritage
God’s Word is our great heritage,
And shall be ours forever,
To spread its light from age to age
Shall be our chief endeavor.
Through life it guides our way;
In death it is our stay.
Lord, grant while world’s endure,
We keep its teachings pure,
Throughout all generations.
Heavenly Father, in Your mercy lead others to the truth through Your Holy Word. Bless Your Church, that Your pure Word may always be taught. Bring back those who have strayed far from You, that they may again have comfort and hope in the forgiveness Christ earned for them. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
