Nineteenth Sunday after Pentecost

Watchword for the Week — There is great gain in godliness combined with contentment. 1 Timothy 6:6

Sunday, September 25 — Amos 6:1a,4–7; Psalm 146
1 Timothy 6:6–19; Luke 16:19–31

I will cleanse them from all the guilt of their sin against me, and I will forgive. Jeremiah 33:8

 

Our Savior Jesus Christ gave himself for us that he might redeem us from all iniquity and purify for himself a people of his own who are zealous for good deeds. Titus 2:13–14

 

Forgiving Savior, what solace we find in knowing that our scarlet sins are washed white as snow; in knowing that you not only forgive but that you also forget. The weight of our sin is great; yet, you have taken it from us with your own life so that we might live. We praise you and thank you for this greatest of all gifts! Amen.
