Lessons and Hymns for Pentecost 15 C (Proper 17)

These are the Scripture readings you will hear this coming Sunday:

Proverbs 25:2-10
Psalm 131
Hebrews 13:1-17
Luke 14:1-14

We Are Humbled and Exalted by the Cross of Christ

“Everyone who exalts himself will be humbled,” Jesus proclaims, but “he who humbles himself will be exalted” (Luke 14:11). For your hope is in the name of the Lord, who humbled Himself unto death on the cross and was exalted in His resurrection. So are you humbled by His cross, and “at the resurrection of the just,” He will say to you, “Friend, move up higher” (Luke 14:10; 13–14). By His grace, the King will honor you “in the presence of a noble,” where your eyes will gaze upon the Prince, His dearly beloved Son (Prov. 25:7). As He has dealt so graciously with you, “do not neglect to do good and to share what you have” (Heb. 13:16) and “do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers” (Heb. 13:2). Humble yourself and exalt your neighbor.

These are the hymns we will sing:

Soul, Adorn Yourself with Gladness (LSB 636:1-4)
Lord Jesus Christ, Life Giving Bread (LSB 625)
Soul, Adorn Yourself with Gladness (LSB 636:5-8)
Guide Me, O Thou Great Redeemer (LSB 918)
