the day of pentecost bulletin cover. Immanuel Lutheran Church LCMS. Joplin, Missouri. Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water. John 7 38

When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them.

INVOCATION, CONFESSION and ABSOLUTION page 184

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

Amen. Matthew 28:19b

Beloved in the Lord! Let us draw near with a true heart and confess our sins unto God our Father, beseeching Him in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to grant us forgiveness. Hebrews 10:22

Our help is in the name of the LORD,

Who made heaven and earth. Psalm 124:8

I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD,

And You forgave the iniquity of my sin. Psalm 32:5

Almighty God, our maker and redeemer, we poor sinners confess unto You that we are by nature sinful and unclean and that we have sinned against You by thought, word, and deed. Wherefore we flee for refuge to Your infinite mercy, seeking and imploring Your grace for the sake of our Lord Jesus Christ.

O most merciful God, who has given Your only-begotten Son to die for us, have mercy upon us and for His sake grant us remission of all our sins; and by Your Holy Spirit increase in us true knowledge of You and of Your will and true obedience to Your Word, to the end that by Your grace we may come to everlasting life; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, has had mercy upon us and has given His only Son to die for us and for His sake forgives us all our sins. To those who believe on His name He gives power to become the children of God and has promised them His Holy Spirit. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved. Grant this, Lord, unto us all. John 1:12, Mark 16:16

Amen.

The Holy Spirit Given at Pentecost – Acts 2:1-21

When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. 

And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Now there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men from every nation under heaven.

And at this sound the multitude came together, and they were bewildered, because each one was hearing them speak in his own language. And they were amazed and astonished, saying, “Are not all these who are speaking Galileans? 

And how is it that we hear, each of us in his own native language? Parthians and Medes and Elamites and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya belonging to Cyrene, and visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabians—we hear them telling in our own tongues the mighty works of God.”

And all were amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “What does this mean?” 

But others mocking said, “They are filled with new wine.”

But Peter, standing with the eleven, lifted up his voice and addressed them: “Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and give ear to my words. For these people are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day. But this is what was uttered through the prophet Joel:

“‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares,
that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh,
and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
     and your young men shall see visions,
     and your old men shall dream dreams;
even on my male servants and female servants
     in those days I will pour out my Spirit, and they shall prophesy.
And I will show wonders in the heavens above
     and signs on the earth below,
     blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke;
the sun shall be turned to darkness
     and the moon to blood,
     before the day of the Lord comes, the great and magnificent day.
And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.’

GLORIA, KYRIE and GLORIA IN EXCELSIS pages 186-189

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost;

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,

World without end. Amen.

Lord, have mercy upon us. Christ, have mercy upon us. 

Lord, have mercy upon us.

Glory be to God on high:

And on earth peace, good will toward men.

We praise Thee, we bless Thee, we worship Thee, 

We glorify Thee, we give thanks to Thee, for Thy great glory.

O Lord God, heavenly King, God the Father almighty. 

O Lord God, the only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ;

O Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father, that takest away the sin of the world, have mercy on us. 

Thou that takest away the sin of the world, receive our prayer.

Thou that sittest at the right hand of God the Father, have mercy upon us.

For Thou only art holy; Thou only art the Lord.

Thou only, O Christ, with the Holy Ghost art most high in the glory of God the Father. Amen. 

SALUTATION and COLLECT OF THE DAY

The Lord be with you.

And with Thy spirit.

Let us pray. O God, on this day You once taught the hearts of Your faithful people by sending them the gift of Your Holy Spirit. Grant us in our day by the same Spirit to have a right understanding in all things and evermore to rejoice in His holy consolation; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

Amen.

KIDS TALK

OLD TESTAMENT – Numbers 11:24-30

So Moses went out and told the people the words of the Lord. And he gathered seventy men of the elders of the people and placed them around the tent. Then the Lord came down in the cloud and spoke to him, and took some of the Spirit that was on him and put it on the seventy elders. And as soon as the Spirit rested on them, they prophesied. But they did not continue doing it.

Now two men remained in the camp, one named Eldad, and the other named Medad, and the Spirit rested on them. They were among those registered, but they had not gone out to the tent, and so they prophesied in the camp. And a young man ran and told Moses, “Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp.” And Joshua the son of Nun, the assistant of Moses from his youth, said, “My lord Moses, stop them.” But Moses said to him, “Are you jealous for my sake? Would that all the Lord’s people were prophets, that the Lord would put his Spirit on them!” And Moses and the elders of Israel returned to the camp.

This is the Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

VERSE

Alleluia. We know that Christ being raised from the dead will never die again; 

death no longer has dominion over him. 

If anyone thirsts. 

Let him come to Me and drink. Alleluia.

HOLY GOSPEL – John 7:37-39

The Holy Gospel according to St. John, the seventh chapter.

Glory be to Thee, O Lord

On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’” Now this he said about the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were to receive, for as yet the Spirit had not been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.    

           This is the Gospel of the Lord.

Praise be to Thee, O Christ.

APOSTLES’ CREED

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.

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 + everlasting. Amen.

HYMN “Holy Spirit, Light Divine” LSB 496, vs. 1, 2, 4

Holy Spirit, light divine, 

Shine upon this heart of mine;

Chase the shades of night away, 

Turn the darkness into day.

Let me see My Savior’s face, 

Let me all His beauties trace;

Show those glorious truths to me 

Which are only known to Thee.

Holy Spirit, joy divine,

Cheer this saddened heart of mine;

Yield a sacred, settled peace, 

Let it grow and still increase.

SERMON

Rev. Gregory Mech, Pastor

“Speaking God’s Language”

PRAYER OF THE CHURCH

LORD’S PRAYER

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.

SALUTATION, BENEDICAMUS and BENEDICTION page 201

The Lord be with you.

And with thy spirit.

Bless we the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

The LORD bless you and keep you.

The LORD make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you. 

The LORD lift His countenance upon you and give you peace.

Amen. Amen. Amen.

HYMN “I Love Your Kingdom, Lord” LSB 651, vs. 1-3

I love Your kingdom, Lord, 

The place of Your abode,

The Church our blest Redeemer saved 

With His own precious blood.

Beyond my highest joy 

I prize its heavenly ways,

Its sweet communion, solemn vows,

Its hymns of love and praise.

I love Your Church, O God, 

Your saints in every land, 

Dear as the apple of Your eye

And graven on Your hand.
