The Sunday Lectionary Readings
SUNDAY, May 10, 2020 — Fifth Sunday of Easter — Mother’s Day
(Revised Common Lectionary Year A)

Now and Always
Acts 7:55-60; Psalm 31:1-5, 15-16; 1 Peter 2:2-10; John 14:1-14

Opening Statement
Hard as a rock. The psalmist considers God a rock fortress where protection may be found. Peter speaks of a cornerstone upon which the church is built—built of “living stones.” The Gospel of John speaks of “my Father’s house” where rooms are available and waiting for the arrival of the disciples. The stumbling block of 1 Peter may be tied to the gospel where Jesus says too plainly for some, “No one comes to the Father except through me.” These weeks following Easter are a great time to remember that God is continually at work in our midst and is ever building the character of the church and of the individuals who are followers of the Way. Rock formations could be likened to the transforming work of God in the lives of those we serve. God continually is at work, changing us, calling us to maturity.





Opening Prayer
Gracious God, on this day of celebration of Mother’s Day, the witness to the eternal love of Christ, reminds us that we are responsible for caring for each other. We are called to lift up rather than tear down; to support rather than abandon, to reach out when others have turned away. Give us hearts of love that, in all places and times, we may be a witness to the hope that is found in Jesus Christ. Amen.


Prayer of Confession
Patient and forgiving God, we come to you this day. For many there is a celebration of Mother’s Day and all that our mothers have given to us and taught us; but for some, these memories are too painful, of those who could not parent, who were afflicted. Remind us that your blessings are poured out in many ways, through many people. Give us the confident faith that reaches beyond our own lives to help others. Forgive us when we sink into our own selfishness and pettiness. For it is in those times that we turn our back on you. Bring us back to you, to the awareness of your eternal love. In Christ’s Name, we pray. Amen.


Words of Assurance
Christ, our cornerstone and our salvation, offers to us hope and comfort. On this Mother’s Day Sunday, help us to make our home in you. Amen.


The Collect
(from the Book of Common Prayers)
Almighty God, whom truly to know is everlasting life: Grant us so perfectly to know your Son Jesus Christ to be the way, the truth, and the life, that we may steadfastly follow his steps in the way that leads to eternal life; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.


Prayer of the Day
Almighty God, your Son Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life. Give us grace to love one another, to follow in the way of his commandments, and to share his risen life with all the world, for he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.


First Reading
Martyrdom of Stephen
7:55 But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. 56 “Look,” he said, “I see heaven open and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.”

57 At this they covered their ears and, yelling at the top of their voices, they all rushed at him, 58 dragged him out of the city and began to stone him. Meanwhile, the witnesses laid their coats at the feet of a young man named Saul.

59 While they were stoning him, Stephen prayed, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” 60 Then he fell on his knees and cried out, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” When he had said this, he fell asleep.


I commend my spirit
1  In you, Lord, I have taken refuge;
     let me never be put to shame;
     deliver me in your righteousness.
2  Turn your ear to me,
     come quickly to my rescue;
   be my rock of refuge,
     a strong fortress to save me.
3  Since you are my rock and my fortress,
     for the sake of your name lead and guide me.
4  Keep me free from the trap that is set for me,
     for you are my refuge.
5  Into your hands I commit my spirit;
     deliver me, Lord, my faithful God.

15 My times are in your hands;
     deliver me from the hands of my enemies,
     from those who pursue me.
16 Let your face shine on your servant;
     save me in your unfailing love.


Second Reading
God’s chosen people
2:2 Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, 3 now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.

4 As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— 5 you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6 For in Scripture it says:

   “See, I lay a stone in Zion,
     a chosen and precious cornerstone,
   and the one who trusts in him
     will never be put to shame.”

7 Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe,

   “The stone the builders rejected
     has become the cornerstone,”

8 and,

   “A stone that causes people to stumble
     and a rock that makes them fall.”

They stumble because they disobey the message—which is also what they were destined for.

9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.


Gospel Acclamation
Alleluia. I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. Alleluia.


The Gospel
Christ the way truth life
14:1 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.”

5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”

6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”

8 Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”

9 Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. 11 Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves. 12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

  • I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
  • I believe in Jesus Christ, his only son, our Lord, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to hell. On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come again to judge the living and the dead.
  • I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen


Holy Communion

A nondenominational serving of bread and wine
Many churches around the world are working hard to adapt to online worship, and one challenge is how our members can celebrate communion from home. Though no video can truly replace the experience of celebrating together in our places of worship, we know that where two or more are gathered, the Lord is present.


Benediction
May the love of God take away your millstones and place you high up on the Rock, that you may see more clearly the calling of God in your life. Into the hands of God, commit your spirit, in the name of Jesus Christ, our risen Lord. Amen.

Christ’s death and resurrection mean that we are invited to join God in his plan to redeem this broken world. It’s not just a wishful idea; it’s a call to every follower of Jesus to change the world.

The Daily Lectionary for SUNDAY, May 10, 2020
Fifth Sunday of Easter — Mother’s Day
Acts 7:55-60; Psalm 31:1-5, 15-16; 1 Peter 2:2-10; John 14:1-14

“I am the way and the truth and the life”


Our Gospel message comes to us today from the 14th chapter of John, beginning with the 1st verse, “Christ the way truth life.”

14:1 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.”

5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”

6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”

8 Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”

9 Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. 11 Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves. 12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it. (John 14:1-14)


Life is a journey. Each of us has a road to walk and decisions to make. Are we looking forward or looking back? Are we watching our steps or looking to Jesus? The road of life was not meant to be walked alone. It was meant to be walked with Jesus.

“I am the way and the truth and the life”

Everyone is searching for a home. In actuality, it is the one desire humans have that cannot properly be satisfied on this earth because this earth is not our home. In a spiritual sense, everyone is like Patch Adams, striving to get home, but the snowstorms of sin blind us, and often we find ourselves on the wrong path.

Patch Adams tries to describe his early life. He compares it to being caught in a snowstorm so blinding that you could walk in circles for days and not even know it. You are incredibly tired, and no one is answering your cries for help. He says, “How small you can feel. How far away home can be.” Patch uses a dictionary definition to say that home is both where you are from as well as your destination. He explains that the storm was in his mind. Though he longed for home, he could not find the right path. He ends with, “Eventually, I would find the right path, but in the most unlikely place.”

We all are looking for the path home. The good news is that Jesus whispers to our homesick hearts, “He is the way and the truth and the life. No one comes home [to the Father] except through him.”

The early Christians picked up on Jesus’ words that he was “the way,” and called themselves, “The Way.” The term focuses more on the concept of a path, rather than a direction. The image of a path depicts more that idea of the journey, as opposed to the destination. Jesus is the path to the Father—to home. Christianity—the walk of faith—is a way of life or a lifestyle. Contrary to popular belief, the goal of Christianity is not to get to heaven but to live each day in a personal relationship with God.

Popular Christianity treats Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection as a means to an end—God has saved my soul so that when I die, I will get to heaven. This popular belief is opposite the idea that through the cross of Jesus Christ, I can enter into a relationship with God and experience an abundant life each and every day that I take a breath and my heart beats.

The popular, but narrow view, I believe, explains why so many Christians don’t act like Christians. They compartmentalize their Christianity to an occasional act of worship on Sunday morning—just enough to get to heaven. The idea that living by faith is a journey eludes them.

Jesus is the Way. Walking with Jesus means:

  • Living a life where challenges, disappointments, and failures are not God’s judgments, but times when we experience Jesus in a more profound, more intimate way.

  • Living a life where love and forgiveness are daily demonstrated in great and small ways.

  • Living a life where the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, self-control, is abundant and ripe.

  • Living a life with the purpose of bearing witness to God’s love and grace to the people around us.

  • Living a life where we use our gifts and talents to serve God by serving others.

Not only does Jesus identify himself as the Way, but he also says that he is the Truth.

Almost all of us say that we want to know the truth, but in reality, we don’t. What we really want is to hear something that we already know, or to read something that agrees with what we think is the truth. New ideas or divergent ideas are not welcomed—even though they may contain some truth. Often teenagers are confronted by parents who demand that they tell them the truth. The teenagers confess that they don’t tell their parents the truth; instead, they tell their parents what their parents want to hear.

Truth comes to those who seek the truth. Sometimes it dawns on us quickly. Archimedes struggled to figure out how he could tell if the king’s crown was made from pure gold or laced with lead. The truth suddenly came upon him while he was soaking in his bathtub in the concept of specific gravity. Archimedes rushed through town, forgetting to put on a rob, shouting, “Eureka!” “I’ve found it!”

For some people, the truth that they have been living their lives in opposition and apart from God dawns on them suddenly. In a flash of light, they see their sinfulness, their emptiness, their need, and realize that Jesus is the only one who can forgive and fulfill.

Truth also comes slowly. Thomas Edison said that invention is ten percent inspiration and ninety percent perspiration. Many people realize that by walking with Jesus—the Truth—the truth slowly seeps into their lives and changes them. They do not know when, where, or how it happened, but as they look back on their journey through life, they realize how the truth has shaped and molded them and made them different people.

Being destination-focused forces us to miss much of what the journey has to offer. Being content that we are headed in the right direction, learning to enjoy the journey, and opening ourselves to the truth, allows us to live an abundant life that really can be “heaven on earth.

Amen.

Isidore the Farmer (1070—1130)

In March 1622, Rome surprised many people by recognizing Isidore as a saint. He founded no order, nor did he write a single book. He was a simple farmworker who spent his life tilling the land, mostly for the same wealthy landowner. With his wife, Maria, he bore a son who died in childhood. Isidore knew the hardship, toil, and sorrow that are very familiar to many. He went to worship daily and prayed continuously in the fields, displaying the simple and profound faith shared by campesinos around the globe. It was said that angels could be seen assisting Isidore in the fields as he plowed. Though he had very little wealth, he became known for generosity and hospitality, especially to the stranger or the lonely. He died on May 15, 1130.

This instruction is found in the ancient Codex Bezae: “Seek to grow from smallness, and from the higher place move down to the lowest.”

Jesus, we believe in your kingdom coming. Even amid pain and despair, we believe that with each brave prophet—with each unknown disciple who stretches her arm as a bridge between a broken world and a holy kingdom—you are laying another brick for the New Jerusalem. Amen.

La misericordia
Por la misericordia de Jehová no hemos sido consumidos, porque nunca decayeron sus misericordias. Nuevas son cada mañana; grande es tu fidelidad.
Todos somos pecadores y nacimos con esa ley del pecado. Sin embargo, el acto más hermoso de Dios para limpiar nuestra naturaleza pecaminosa, y sin merecérnosla, fue cuando nos dio a su único Hijo para que muriera por ti y por mí, y darnos de esa manera el perdón de los pecados y una vida nueva.

Dios perdona nuestros pecados y, como dice su Palabra, los echa al fondo del mar y nunca se vuelve acordar de ellos.

No obstante, como el pecado es algo que está en nuestro ser, muchas veces va a querer salir la vieja naturaleza y le vamos a fallar a nuestro Dios. Es decir, vamos a pecar. Aun así, esto no se debe convertir en un juego, como si dijéramos: «Ah, bueno, yo peco, pero le pido perdón a Dios y Él lo olvida».

Con todo, si el arrepentimiento es de corazón, y así le fallemos cada día, su misericordia es la que nos permite continuar a pesar de los errores cometidos.

Recuerda que las misericordias de Dios son nuevas cada mañana.

Standing Strong Through the Storm - Sunday, May 10, 2020

https://www.biblegateway.com/devotionals/standing-strong-through-the-storm/2020/05/10
WITHOUT WOMEN THERE WOULD BE NO CHURCH

Many women were there, watching from a distance. They had followed Jesus from Galilee to care for his needs.

The New Testament records the fact that many women were among the larger body of disciples that followed and served Jesus Christ. Unfortunately, we only know the names and stories of a few. They were more loyal to Jesus at the time of his crucifixion than his male disciples.

Despite the patriarchal society of that day, four women—two of them Gentile foreigners—were named in the genealogy of Jesus in Matthew’s Gospel chapter one. It is significant that Jesus included women in his teaching putting them on equality with men. The same ethical and moral standards were demanded from both genders and the same way of salvation was offered for both.

Throughout the Bible, women filled significant roles—from leadership like Deborah to unique motherhood like Mary. The same has been true of those in the persecuted church.

A pastor in Cuba once told me, “Lenin said that without women there would be no revolution. I say that without women there would be no church!”

In China, the group of Christians who have had a major role in the revival and church growth are referred to locally as “Bible Women.” Chairman Mao once said, “Women hold up half the sky.” But it is estimated that about seventy percent of the active Christian workers and church leaders in China today are women.

For example, Chinese Bible Woman, Ding Xianggao, has an incredible testimony. She is a young itinerant evangelist in China. Very much aware of the cost, she says, “In my country there are many brothers and sisters who suffer for Christ. Some of my co-workers have spent thirty years in prison for the sake of the gospel.”

Two of her associates were actually martyred. Because she is a hunted woman, she often sleeps in caves and fields to avoid capture.

Her commitment is expressed this way: “Jesus died for me. The least I should do is die for Him. To suffer and go to prison for Him is my honor, and I look forward to it.” She ended up in a large prison with over eight hundred inmates involved in prostitution, murder, and kidnapping. But Ding believed God had placed her there for a reason. After three years she was released from prison. But not before seventy-eight people had made a personal commitment to Christ.

Sister Chan was sent to prison for six months for public preaching in central China, a prison with six thousand other women. During her time there, she led eight hundred women to faith in Jesus.

God uses everyone who is available in establishing His kingdom on earth.

RESPONSE: Today I will not assume that I am not useable by God. I will make myself available to Him.

PRAYER: Pray for the ministry of Christian women around the world—especially those who serve our Lord in difficult assignments or places.

LHM Daily Devotions - May 10, 2020 - "Thine the Amen, Thine the Praise"

https://www.lhm.org/dailydevotions/default.asp?date=20200510

Daily Devotions from Lutheran Hour Ministries

"Thine the Amen, Thine the Praise"

May 10, 2020

♫ "Thine the amen, Thine the praise, Alleluias angels raise. Thine the everlasting head, Thine the breaking of the bread. Thine the glory, Thine the story; Thine the harvest, then the cup. Thine the vineyard, then the cup is lifted up, lifted up.

"Thine the glory in the night, No more dying, only light. Thine the river, Thine the tree, then the Lamb eternally. Then the holy, holy, holy Celebration jubilee. Thine the splendor, Thine the brightness, only Thee, only Thee." ♫
We live in a very "me-centered" culture. The evidence is all around us and, unfortunately, within us as well. We often put our needs ahead of the needs of others. We often crave the attention, positive or negative, provided by our social media contacts. Sin turns us inward on ourselves. A favorite phrase is "It's all about me!"

But "it" isn't all about us, is it? It never has been. There is only One who can rightly say that. "It"—the world, its creation, its history, every purpose and intent, the Creator's grand design, and whatever else "it" may include—is about our Lord and God. Our hymn reflects on the singular glory that belongs to God alone.

The glory belongs to God, as does the story of our salvation in Christ Jesus. In Eden, God announced His plan. The woman's offspring would come to crush the tempting serpent. God formed a nation for Himself, a people among whom the serpent-crushing Child would be born. God spoke through His prophets and, when the time was fulfilled, He sent His only Son into the world to be our Savior. By His death and resurrection, Jesus, the woman's offspring, crushed the power of Satan, the ancient serpent.

In the God-given elements of harvest and vineyard, of bread and wine, we celebrate Jesus' death and His victory as He gives us His body and blood, given and shed for the forgiveness of sins. "Thine the glory, Thine the story." From beginning to end, the story belongs to God alone. It is not about "me." It is about Him and what He has done for us all. The story is about His grace, His undeserved favor for sinners (like "me"!). The story is about His love for the world and the gift of His Son.

"No more dying, only light." On the Last Day when Jesus returns, death will be destroyed as He raises us from our graves just as He was raised. Then, with all things subject to Him, He will hand over to God the Father the kingdom He has won, "that God may be all in all" (1 Corinthians 15:28b). We will join in the eternal celebration jubilee, crying out with all the saints, "Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb" (Revelation 7:10b). "Only Thee, only Thee!"

THE PRAYER: Lord God, help us to follow Jesus, living not for ourselves but for others, as He did. Guide and guard us until we join in the eternal celebration jubilee. Amen.

Reflection Questions:
1. Do you see a "me-centered" world when you look around? How do you address that in your own life?

2. It seems God's character and power alone would be enough to put Him front and center in our lives. Why is it we're so easily distracted with the trivial and mundane?

3. How does praising God help us take the focus off of self and direct it toward Him?

Unser Täglich Brot - Ewige Liebe

Ewige Liebe

Lesung: Psalm 136,1-9 | Die Bibel in einem Jahr: 2. Könige 10-12; Johannes 1,29-51

Wir haben erkannt, wie sehr Gott uns liebt, und wir glauben an seine Liebe. Gott ist Liebe.
Vor Jahren schenkte mir mein damals vier Jahre alter Sohn ein hölzernes Herz auf einer Metallplatte, in dessen Mitte „Für immer“ stand. „Ich werde dich immer liebhaben, Mami“, sagte er.

Ich bedankte mich und drückte ihn fest an mich.

Das kostbare Geschenk erinnert mich noch heute an die nie endende Liebe meines Sohnes. An schwierigen Tagen gebraucht Gott es, um mich zu trösten und zu ermutigen im Wissen, dass ich geliebt bin.

Das Herz erinnert mich auch an Gottes ewige Liebe, wie sie in seinem ganzen Wort zum Ausdruck kommt und vom Heiligen Geist bestätigt wird. Wir können Gottes unwandelbarer Güte vertrauen und ihm dankbar Loblieder singen, wie der Psalmist es tut (Psalm 136,1). Wir können preisen, weil er über allem steht (V. 2-3), und wir können über seine unendlichen Wunder und grenzenlose Gnade nachdenken (V. 4-5). Der Gott, der uns für immer liebt, ist der Schöpfer von Himmel und Erde und hat sogar die Zeit in seiner Hand (V. 6-9).

Wir dürfen uns freuen, weil die ewige Liebe, von der der Psalmist singt, dieselbe ist, die der allmächtige Schöpfer und Erhalter noch heute in das Leben seiner Kinder strömen lässt. Egal, womit wir es zu tun haben, der Eine, der uns gemacht hat und immer bei uns bleibt, stärkt uns und spricht uns auch heute seine nie endende, Leben verändernde Liebe zu!
Wie hat Gott dir gezeigt, dass er dich liebt? Wie hat das deinen Glauben gestärkt?
Herr, hilf uns, dich und andere zu lieben, weil wir uns von deiner nie endenden Liebe getragen wissen.
