The Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost

August 26, 2018


Hymn of Invocation: “Awake, My Soul, and with the Sun” LSB 868


Confession and Absolution The sign of the cross may be made by all in remembrance of their Baptism. P In the name of the Father and of the T Son and of the Holy Spirit. C Amen. P

If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. C But if we confess our sins, God, who is faithful and just, will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Silence for reflection on God's Word and for self-examination. P Let us then confess our sins to God our Father. C Most merciful God, we confess that we are by nature sinful and unclean. We have sinned against You in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done and by what we have left undone. We have not loved You with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We justly deserve Your present and eternal punishment. For the sake of Your Son, Jesus Christ, have mercy on us. Forgive us, renew us, and lead us, so that we may delight in Your will and walk in Your ways to the glory of Your holy name. Amen. P

In the mercy of almighty God, Jesus Christ was given to die for us, and for His sake God forgives us all our sins. To those who believe in Jesus Christ He gives the power to become the children of God and bestows on them the Holy Spirit. May the Lord, who has begun this good work in us, bring it to completion in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. C Amen. 2

Service of the Word Kyrie

P: In peace let us pray to the Lord.

P: For the peace from above and for our salvation, let us pray to the Lord.

P: For the peace of the whole world, for the well-being of the church of God, and for the unity of all let us pray to the Lord.

P: For this holy house and for all who offer here their worship and praise, let us pray to the Lord.

P: Help, save, comfort and defend us, gracious Lord.


Hymn of Praise Gloria in Excelsis


Salutation and Collect of the Day P

The Lord be with you.


Let us pray.

Almighty and merciful God, defend Your Church from all false teaching and error that Your faithful people may confess You to be the only true God and rejoice in Your good gifts of life and salvation; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

Sit Old Testament Reading Isaiah 29:11–19 11And the vision of all this has become to you like the words of a book that is sealed. When men give it to one who can read, saying, “Read this,” he says, “I cannot, for it is sealed.” 12And when they give the book to one who cannot read, saying, “Read this,” he says, “I cannot read.” And the Lord said: “Because this people draw near with their mouth and honor me with their lips, while their hearts are far from me, and their fear of me is a commandment taught by men, 14therefore, behold, I will again do wonderful things with this people, 13


with wonder upon wonder; and the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the discernment of their discerning men shall be hidden.” Ah, you who hide deep from the LORD your counsel, whose deeds are in the dark, and who say, “Who sees us? Who knows us?” 16You turn things upside down! Shall the potter be regarded as the clay, that the thing made should say of its maker, “He did not make me”; or the thing formed say of him who formed it, “He has no understanding”? 15

Is it not yet a very little while until Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be regarded as a forest? 18In that day the deaf shall hear the words of a book, and out of their gloom and darkness the eyes of the blind shall see. 19The meek shall obtain fresh joy in the LORD, and the poor among mankind shall exult in the Holy One of Israel. 17

A This is the Word of the Lord. C Thanks be to God. Psalm

Psalm 14 (antiphon: v. 7a)

P Oh, that salvation for Israel C would come out of Zion!

P The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” C They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds, there is none who does good. P The Lord looks down from heaven on the children of man, C to see if there are any who understand, who seek after God. P They have all turned aside; together they have become corrupt; 6

C there is none who does good, not even one. P Have they no knowledge, all the evildoers C who eat up my people as they eat bread and do not call upon the Lord? P There they are in great terror, C for God is with the generation of the righteous. P You would shame the plans of the poor, C but the Lord is his refuge. P Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion! C When the Lord restores the fortunes of his people, let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad. ALL: Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit; as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen. P Oh, that salvation for Israel C would come out of Zion! Hymn: “O Jesus, King Most Wonderful” LSB 554 Epistle Ephesians 5:22–33 22Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. 24Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands. 25Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, 26that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, 27so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. 28In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, 30because we are members of his body. 31“Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” 32This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. 33However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband. A This is the Word of the Lord. C Thanks be to God. 7

Stand Alleluia and Verse

Holy Gospel Mark 7:1-13 P The Holy Gospel according to St. Mark, the seventh chapter.

When the Pharisees gathered to [Jesus], with some of the scribes who had come from Jerusalem, 2they saw that some of his disciples ate with hands that were defiled, that is, unwashed. 3(For the Pharisees and all the Jews do not eat unless they wash their hands, holding to the tradition of the elders, 4and when they come from the marketplace, they do not eat unless they wash. And there are many other traditions that they observe, such as the washing of cups and pots and copper vessels and dining couches.) 5And the Pharisees and the scribes asked him, “Why do your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat with defiled hands?” 6And he said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written, “‘This people honor me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; 7in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ 1


You leave the commandment of God and hold to the tradition of men.” 8

And he said to them, “You have a fine way of rejecting the commandment of God in order to establish your tradition! 10 For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and your mother’; and, ‘Whoever reviles father or mother must surely die.’ 11 But you say, ‘If a man tells his father or his mother, Whatever you would have gained from me is Corban’ (that is, given to God)— 12 then you no longer permit him to do anything for his father or mother, 13 thus making void the word of God by your tradition that you have handed down. And many such things you do.” 9


This is the Gospel of the Lord.

Sit Hymn of the Day: “Lord, Jesus Christ with Us Abide” LSB 585 Sermon: Mark 7:1-13

Stand Apostles' Creed C I believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From thence He will come to judge the living and the dead. 9

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life T everlasting. Amen. Prayer of the Church Lord's Prayer C

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven; give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.

P: Blessed Lord, You have caused all Holy Scriptures to be written for our learning. Grant that we may so hear them, read, mark, learn and take them to heart that, by the patience and comfort of Your holy Word, we may embrace and ever hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

Benediction P: The Lord bless you and keep you, the Lord make His face shine on you and be gracious to you. The Lord look upon you with favor T and give you peace.

attending Concordia Junior College in Milwaukee (A.A. 1973), he received the Bachelor of Arts Degree from Concordia Senior College, Fort Wayne, Indiana, in 1975. His seminary training was at Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri (M. Div. 1979). He served his vicarage at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Richmond, Virginia (1977-1978). Upon graduation from the Seminary he received a Divine Call from St. John in Park Rapids, Minnesota, where he served from July 1979 to November 2000. Rev. Fondow accepted a Call to serve as Mission and Ministry Facilitator (Division of Missions and Congregational Outreach) in the Minnesota North District in October 2000. In April of 2003, he was elected as President of The Minnesota North District of The Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod and re-elected in 2006, 2009, 2012, 2015 and 2018. In May of 2006 he was awarded an honorary Doctor of Letters Degree from Concordia University, St. Paul, MN. Rev.

He fellowship time. If you can help, please graduated from Concordia High School in sign up on the bulletin board. Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 1971. After The True Tradition of the Church Is the Ministry of the Gospel of Christ Jesus, Her Savior The true tradition of the Church is the Gospel, which is the preaching and administration of Christ Jesus. Other traditions, although not commanded by God, may serve and support that sacred tradition of the Gospel. But the Church dare not “[reject] the commandment of God” in order to establish or hold to “the tradition of men” (Mark 7:8–9). Sinful people attempt to draw near to the Lord “with their mouth” and to honor Him “with their lips,” while their hearts are far removed from Him (Is. 29:13). Yet, He is “the Holy One of Israel,” who brings about salvation by His cross. Therefore, “the wisdom of their wise men shall perish,” but “the deaf shall hear” and “the eyes of the blind shall see” (Is. 29:14–19). This mystery of Christ is profound, for He is the husband of the Church, and He is her Savior. Not because of any works that she has done, but solely for the sake of His great love, He “gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word” (Eph. 5:25–26).
