John 1:29-41 - I am Jesus’ Little Lamb
This coming Sunday, January 27th, Lord and Savior’s elementary and preschool children (PreK-8) will be singing "I Am Jesus' Little Lamb” during the service. The sermon theme will be based directly on the sermon text (John 1:29-41): “Look, the Lamb of God!” Pastor David Carlovsky’s sermon will try to imagine growing up in a faithful Israelite family. They would be familiar with all the times that lambs were sacrificed. We, too, have become familiar with Jesus as our Lamb, whose sacrifice was substitutionary, sacrificial and special. Because He came to be the Lamb, we can say of ourselves too: "I am Jesus' Little Lamb.”
Luke 4:20-32 - Worthless Sinners Become Worthy Witnesses!
The following Sunday, February 3rd, Pastor Carlovsky will focus on the thought that Jesus calls us as His messengers. The Old Testament lesson (Isaiah 6:1-8) highlights Isaiah's familiar response to his calling: "Here am I. Send me! (Isaiah 6:8). Pastor Carlovsky will preach on the Gospel lesson (Luke 4:20-32), which has Jesus returning to His hometown to preach the Good News. Sharing God's message and witnessing will be the focus. The sermon theme will be: "WORTHLESS SINNERS BECOME WORTHY WITNESSES!"
