Second Sunday of Easter

Watchword for the week — If we walk in the light as God is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. 1 John 1:7

Sunday, April 7, 2024 — Acts 4:32-35; Psalm 133
1 John 1:1-2:2; John 20:19-31

The Israelites said to the Lord, “We have sinned; do to us whatever seems good to you, but deliver us this day!” Judges 10:15

But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven but was beating his breast and saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’ Luke 18:13

O loving God, we thank you for your mercy. Although we are all sinners, we are the benefactors of your tenderhearted care, grace, and forgiveness. Because of the offering of your beloved son, we are blessed to have been pardoned and to have received eternal salvation. Thanks be to God! Amen.
