Sermon: “Come to Me, and I Will Give You Rest.” by Rev. Gary S. Schuschke

 

This Sunday, the scripture is taken from:

Old Testament Reading – Zechariah 9:9–12

9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!  Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; righteous and having salvation is he,  humble and mounted on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey. 10 I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim and the war horse from Jerusalem; and the battle bow shall be cut off,

and he shall speak peace to the nations; his rule shall be from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth. 11 As for you also, because of the blood of my covenant with you, I will set your prisoners free from the waterless pit. 12 Return to your stronghold, O prisoners of hope; today I declare that I will restore to you double.

  

Psalm 145:1–14

P: 1I will extol you, my God and King, and bless your name forever and ever.

 C: 2Every day I will bless you and praise your name forever and ever.

 P: 3Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable.

 C: 4One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts.

 P: 5On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works, I will meditate.

 C: 6They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds, and I will declare your greatness.

 P: 7They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.

 C: 8The LORD is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.

 P: 9The LORD is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made.

 C: 10All your works shall give thanks to you, O LORD, and all your saints shall bless you!

 P: 11They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom and tell of your power,

C: 12to make known to the children and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.

P: 13Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures throughout all generations. The LORD is faithful in all his words and kind in all his works.

C: 14The LORD upholds all who are falling and raises up all who are bowed down.

All: Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit; as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.

 

Epistle Reading – Romans 7:14–25a

14 For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am of the flesh, sold under sin. 15 For I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate. 16 Now if I do what I do not want, I agree with the law, that it is good. 17 So now it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells within me. 18 For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out. 19 For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing. 20 Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells within me.

21 So I find it to be a law that when I want to do right, evil lies close at hand. 22 For I delight in the law of God, in my inner being, 23 but I see in my members another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members. 24 Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?

Gospel – Matthew 11:25–30

 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”25 At that time Jesus declared, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children; 26 yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. 27 All things have been handed over to me by my Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. 28 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
