Lessons and Hymns for Lent 1 C

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

Deuteronomy 26:1-11
Romans 10:8b-13
Luke 4:1-13

Jesus Christ Is Our Champion Against the Devil

Jesus Christ, our Champion against the devil, endures and overcomes “every temptation” (Luke 4:13) on our behalf. He worships the Lord, His God, and serves Him only by trusting the Word of His Father: “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased” (Luke 3:22). Jesus’ victory is now ours through His gracious Word, which is not far away but near us — in our mouth and in our heart, in the proclamation of repentance and faith. For “with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved” (Rom. 10:10). Our confession of Christ includes the prayer of faith, which is not disappointed, “for ‘everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved’” (Rom. 10:13). The Lord is not oblivious to “our affliction, our toil, and our oppression” (Deut. 26:7), but has mercy upon us. He has brought us out of bondage through the “signs and wonders” of Holy Baptism, “with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm” (Deut. 26:8), and now He leads us by His Spirit even in the wilderness.

These are the hymns we will sing:

God Loved the World So That He Gave (LSB 571)
A Mighty Fortress (LSB 656)
I Walk in Danger All the Way (LSB 716)
Triune God, Be Thou Our Stay (LSB 505)
All Praise to Thee, My God, This Night (LSB 883)
