Readings for the Week
September 16 - 23, 2018
Readings for Sunday, September 16:

Is 50:5-9a:  Isaiah speaks of his sufferings, but God is his help and He upholds him in misery. 

Jas 2:14-18:  Faith in words is dead; it must carry out into action.  Words alone will not cover the naked nor bring food to the hungry.

Mk 8:27-35: In answer to Jesus’ question about Himself, Peter acknowledges that Jesus is the Messiah.  Jesus then tells of His future sufferings, death and resurrection. To follow Him we must take up our cross. 

Today’s Message: Discipleship entails denying our very selves and following the way of the Lord, a way of suffering and service.  In professing our faith in Him we can rely on the Lord for strength and salvation.
