World Mission Sunday. Ours is a missionary church; the mission—to be Christ for the world—is not something to be left to those deputed to be missionaries in foreign lands. It is a right and duty of all the baptized.

Isaiah 53:10-11. The conclusion of the great Song of the Servant which we read on Good Friday. The one who gives him/herself as an offering for sin will see the light in fullness of days.

Psalm of the Day: Ps (32) 33

Suggested Common Psalm

Ps (62) 63: My Soul Is Thirsting for You

Hebrews 4:14-16. Our high priest knows what our lives are like. Jesus is not above us but one of us “who has similarly been tested in every way.” This gives us confidence as we “approach the throne of grace to receive mercy.”

Mark 10:35-45. To be a disciple—to be baptized—is to accept the same mission that Jesus accepted, to give oneself wholly to God’s plan. It means becoming a servant, “for the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
