SERMON TEXT: LUKE 19:11-27 PLEASE RISE. OUR TEXT FOR THIS MORNING IS THE GOSPEL LESSON WHICH I WILL READ AGAIN FOR EMPHASIS: LUKE, CHAPTER 19, VERSES 11 THROUGH 27: WHILE THEY WERE LISTENING TO THIS, [HE] JESUS WENT ON TO TELL THEM A PARABLE, BECAUSE HE WAS NEAR JERUSALEM AND THE PEOPLE THOUGHT THAT THE KINGDOM OF GOD WAS GOING TO APPEAR AT ONCE. HE SAID: "A MAN OF NOBLE BIRTH WENT TO A DISTANT COUNTRY TO HAVE HIMSELF APPOINTED KING AND THEN TO RETURN. SO HE CALLED TEN OF HIS SERVANTS AND GAVE THEM TEN MINAS. 'PUT THIS MONEY TO WORK,' HE SAID, 'UNTIL I COME BACK.' BUT HIS SUBJECTS HATED HIM AND SENT A DELEGATION AFTER HIM TO SAY, 'WE DON'T WANT THIS MAN TO BE OUR KING.' HE WAS MADE KING, HOWEVER, AND RETURNED HOME. THEN HE SENT FOR THE SERVANTS TO WHOM HE HAD GIVEN THE MONEY, IN ORDER TO FIND OUT WHAT THEY HAD GAINED WITH IT. THE FIRST ONE CAME AND SAID, 'SIR, YOUR MINA HAS EARNED TEN MORE.' 'WELL DONE, MY GOOD SERVANT!' HIS MASTER REPLIED. 'BECAUSE YOU HAVE BEEN TRUSTWORTHY IN A VERY SMALL MATTER, TAKE CHARGE OF TEN CITIES.' THE SECOND CAME AND SAID, 'SIR, YOUR MINA HAS EARNED FIVE MORE.' HIS MASTER ANSWERED, 'YOU TAKE CHARGE OF FIVE CITIES.' THEN ANOTHER SERVANT CAME AND SAID, 'SIR, HERE IS YOUR MINA; I HAVE KEPT IT LAID AWAY IN A PLACE OF CLOTH, uh ... PIECE OF CLOTH. I WAS AFRAID OF YOU, BECAUSE YOU ARE A HARD MAN. YOU TAKE OUT WHAT YOU DID NOT PUT IN AND REAP WHAT YOU DID NOT SOW.' HIS MASTER REPLIED, 'I WILL JUDGE YOU BY YOUR OWN WORDS, YOU WICKED SERVANT! YOU KNEW, DID YOU, THAT I AM A HARD MAN, TAKING OUT WHAT I DID NOT PUT IN, AND REAPING WHAT I DID NOT SOW? WHY THEN DIDN'T YOU PUT MY MONEY ON DEPOSIT, SO THAT WHEN I CAME BACK, I COULD HAVE COLLECTED IT WITH INTEREST?' THEN HE SAID TO THOSE STANDING BY, 'TAKE HIS MINA AWAY FROM HIM AND GIVE IT TO THE ONE WHO HAS TEN MINAS.' 'SIR,' THEY SAID, 'HE ALREADY HAS TEN!' HE REPLIED, 'I TELL YOU THAT TO EVERYONE WHO HAS, MORE WILL BE GIVEN, BUT AS FOR THE ONE WHO HAS NOTHING, EVEN WHAT HE HAS WILL BE TAKEN AWAY. BUT THOSE ENEMIES OF MINE WHO DID NOT WANT ME TO BE KING OVER THEM -- BRING THEM HERE AND KILL THEM IN FRONT OF ME.' " WE PRAY: ALMIGHTY KING OF THE UNIVERSE, YOU WHO CAME DOWN AND PUT ON HUMAN FORM TO SAVE US FROM OUR SINS, DYING ON THE CROSS, SHEDDING YOUR OWN BLOOD TO REDEEM US, WE ASK THAT AS WE TURN OUR THOUGHTS TO THE LAST DAY, THAT BY YOUR HOLY SPIRIT YOU OPEN UP OUR EYES TO YOUR GREAT MERCY; TO YOUR GREAT LOVE AND COMPASSION TOWARDS US WHO BELIEVE IN YOU. AND HELP US ALSO, IN LOVE AND COMPASSION, TO REACH OUT TO THOSE AROUND US SO THAT THEY MAY ESCAPE YOUR JUDGMENT UPON ALL THE WICKED WHO HAVE REBELLED AGAINST YOU. WE ASK THIS IN YOUR NAME JESUS. AMEN. PLEASE BE SEATED. [TEXT TAKEN FROM THE HOLY BIBLE: NIV, 1973, 1978, 1984, USED BY PERMISSION OF ZONDERVAN BIBLE PUBLISHERS] DEAR FELLOW BROTHERS AND SISTERS OF OUR KING, OUR LORD AND KING, JESUS CHRIST: HAVE YOU EVER EXPERIENCED THE PANIC OF HAVING SOMEONE SHOW UP AT YOUR HOUSE UNEXPECTEDLY? AT COMPLETELY THE WRONG TIME! YOU'VE JUST GOTTEN OUT OF THE SHOWER AND THE DOORBELL RINGS. COMPANY'S HERE! OR PERHAPS THE RELATIVES ARE COMING FOR THANKSGIVING AND THE HOUSE IS A MESS BUT YOU KNOW YOU'VE GOT A COUPLE HOURS TO STRAIGHTEN THINGS UP ... AND SURE ENOUGH ... THEY COME EARLY. ALL OF A SUDDEN THAT DOORBELL RINGS! WORSE YET, ARE THOSE PREDICTABLE TIMES WHEN YOU KNOW SOMEONE IS COMING, AND YOU AREN'T PREPARED EVEN THOUGH YOU KNEW WHAT TIME THEY WOULD COME BACK. LIKE THE TIME MAYBE MOM AND DAD ASKED YOU TO STRAIGHTEN UP THE HOUSE AND THEY'RE OUT DOING ERRANDS AND THEN THEY ARE GOING TO COME BACK AT A CERTAIN TIME. BUT YOU, UNFORTUNATELY, WERE DISTRACTED AND DURING THAT HOUR YOU WERE GLUED TO THE SIT-COM. AND THEN YOU HEAR THE CAR DOORS. THAT'S SOMEWHAT WHAT IT WILL BE LIKE ON THE LAST DAY WHEN JESUS ARRIVES AND COMES BACK TO JUDGE THE EARTH. IT WILL BE UNEXPECTED ... LIKE A THIEF IN THE NIGHT. AND HE'S BEEN GONE SO AWFULLY LONG FROM OUR PERSPECTIVE THAT SOMETIMES WE MAY EVEN BEGIN TO FORGET ABOUT DOING THE WORK THAT HE HAS CALLED US TO DO. BUT THAT DOESN'T EXCUSE US. AND LIKE THE PARENTS, WHO EXPECTED THEIR CHILD TO DO THOSE THINGS THAT THEY LEFT TO BE DONE, JESUS ALSO EXPECTS US TO BE ABOUT THE WORK THAT HE HAS GIVEN US TO DO. THIS IS BECAUSE THE KING WANTS FAITHFUL WORKERS. THE PARABLE WHICH JESUS TOLD IN OUR TEXT THIS MORNING WAS TOLD AT THE TAIL END OF JESUS' EARTHLY MINISTRY. JESUS WAS IN JERICHO, A TOWN ABOUT 15 MILES NORTH OF JERUSALEM AND LOCATED IN THE JORDAN VALLEY. JESUS HAD JUST GIVEN A SHORT TAX COLLECTOR BY THE NAME OF ZACCHEUS THE THRILL OF HIS LIFE BY ASKING HIM TO COME DOWN OUT OF THE TREE AND EAT WITH HIM. AND DURING THE COURSE OF THAT DINNER, ZACCHEUS BECAME A BELIEVER. AND IMMEDIATELY HE WENT ABOUT GIVING MONEY TO THE PEOPLE THAT HE HAD CHEATED. AND JESUS SAID TO HIM, "TODAY SALVATION HAS COME TO THIS HOUSE, FOR THIS MAN ALSO IS A SON OF ABRAHAM." AND JESUS ADDED, "THE SON OF MAN HAS COME TO SEEK AND TO SAVE THE LOST." WITH THOSE TWO STATEMENTS HANGING IN THE AIR AND WITH JESUS BEING SO CLOSE TO JERUSALEM, SOME WERE THINKING THAT JESUS WAS ABOUT TO ESTABLISH HIS EARTHLY AUTHORITY ... HIS EARTHLY KINGDOM ... AND THROW OFF THE ROMAN RULE. "TO SAVE" WAS HEARD BY THOSE PEOPLE, AS NOT AS A RELIGIOUS TERM, BUT AS A POLITICAL PROMISE TO RESCUE THE NATION OF ISRAEL FROM THE FOREIGN RULE OF THE ROMANS. THAT'S WHY OUR TEXT STARTS OFF WITH THE STATEMENT: "WHILE THEY WERE LISTENING TO THIS, JESUS WENT ON TO TELL THEM A PARABLE, BECAUSE HE WAS NEAR JERUSALEM AND THE PEOPLE THOUGHT THAT THE KINGDOM OF GOD WAS GOING TO APPEAR AT ONCE." THE PARABLE JESUS TOLD WAS INTENDED TO SHATTER THE IMAGE OF AN EARLY KINGDOM AND TO FOCUS THEIR ATTENTION UPON WHAT THE KINGDOM OF GOD WAS. IN JESUS' PARABLE, A KING WENT TO A DISTANT CITY, RECEIVED AUTHORITY TO RULE, AND THEN RETURNED TO REIGN OVER HIS COUNTRY. AND THAT IS ACTUALLY BASED UPON A THING THAT HAPPENED IN REAL LIFE THAT THEY ALL WERE VERY FAMILIAR WITH. Umm ... SOMEONE HAD GONE TO THE ROMANS GONE TO ROME, TO GET THEIR EARTHLY AUTHORITY TO RULE, AND HAD COME BACK AND THEY WERE NOT A POPULAR PERSON. THAT KING REPRESENTS JESUS. EVEN AS THE KING IN THE PARABLE WAS HATED BY MANY OF HIS SUBJECTS, SO JESUS WAS HATED BY MANY PEOPLE OF HIS DAY. NEVERTHELESS, JUST AS THE MAN IN THE PARABLE BECAME KING IN SPITE OF THEIR FUTILE ATTEMPTS TO STOP HIM, SO JESUS ALSO BECAME KING. AFTER JESUS DIED AND WAS RAISED, HE APPEARED TO HIS DISCIPLES AND TOLD THEM, "ALL AUTHORITY IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH HAS BEEN GIVEN TO ME. THEREFORE GO AND MAKE DISCIPLES." [MATTHEW 28] IN THE PARABLE, THE KING GAVE TEN OF OF HIS OWN SLAVES EQUAL AMOUNTS OF MONEY AND TOLD THEM: "PUT THE MONEY TO WORK" UNTIL I RETURN. WE HEAR THE RESULTS OF ONLY THREE OF THOSE TEN. ONE EARNED 10 TIMES AS MUCH FROM HIS INVESTMENT. ANOTHER 5 TIMES AS MUCH. IN BOTH CASES, THEY WERE COMMENDED FOR THEIR EFFORTS AND GIVEN GREATER RESPONSIBILITIES BECAUSE THEY HAD PROVED FAITHFUL. THE KING WANTS FAITHFUL WORKERS. BUT IN THE THIRD SLAVE, WE SEE A DESPICABLE CHARACTER. FIRST, HE FAILS TO DO THE WORK THAT HE HAD BEEN GIVEN TO DO. SECONDLY, HE ACCUSES HIS KING OF BEING A "HARD MAN" ... SOMEONE WHO IS NEVER SATISFIED WITH WHAT A PERSON DOES AND ASKS TOO MUCH OF HIS SLAVES. THE SLAVES AS YOU MIGHT GUESS, REPRESENT ALL PEOPLE. WE ARE OWNED BY GOD BODY AND SOUL, BECAUSE HE IS THE ONE WHO MADE US. AND NOT ONLY THAT, BUT WE WERE REDEEMED AT A PRICE. BOUGHT BACK OUT OF SLAVERY TO SATAN TO SERVE ONCE MORE OUR GOD AND SAVIOR. BOUGHT BACK BY THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF HIS OWN SON. THE MONEY IN THE PARABLE IS ALL THAT GOD GIVES US TO ACCOMPLISH THE MISSION OF SAVING SOULS. CERTAINLY THAT INCLUDES THE POWERFUL MESSAGE OF LAW AND GOSPEL, WHICH IS GOD'S WORD. AND GOD USES HIS WORD TO SHOW US WHAT HE DEMANDS AND HOW WE'VE FAILED TO DO IT. BUT HE ALSO SHOWS US HOW MUCH JESUS LOVES US. HOW JESUS DID EVERYTHING THAT WAS DEMANDED, IN OUR PLACE. AND THAT JESUS EVEN WENT SO FAR AS TO RECEIVE THE PUNISHMENT WE DESERVE BY DYING FOR OUR SINS ON THE CROSS. THE SLAVES WHO DISOBEYED THEIR MASTER ARE THOSE ... I'm sorry THE SLAVES WHO "OBEYED" THEIR MASTER ARE THOSE WHO BELIEVE AND TRUST THAT GOD WAS RAISED FROM THE DEAD. AND WE WILL ALSO BE ACCEPTED BY GOD FOR JESUS' SAKE. THEY ARE HAPPY TO SERVE THEIR MASTER BECAUSE THEY KNOW ALL THEIR MASTER DID ... TO SAVE THEM! WE HAVE THE SAME ATTITUDE AS PAUL WHO WROTE: "I HAVE BEEN CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST AND I NO LONGER LIVE, BUT CHRIST LIVES IN ME. THE LIFE I LIVE IN THE BODY, I LIVE BY FAITH IN THE SON OF GOD, WHO LOVED ME AND WHO GAVE HIMSELF FOR ME." [GAL 2:20] AS PAUL WROTE IN 2 CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 5, VERSE 15: "AND HE DIED FOR ALL, THAT THOSE WHO LIVE SHOULD NO LONGER LIVE FOR THEMSELVES BUT FOR HIM WHO DIED FOR THEM AND WAS RAISED AGAIN." WE TAKE THE MASTER'S COMMAND TO DO THE WORK THAT HE HAS GIVEN US TO DO WITH ZEAL. WE LIVE THE GOSPEL IN OUR LIVES AND SHARE THE MESSAGE OF GOD'S WORD WITH MANY OTHERS. AND SINCE WE KNOW THAT GOD IS A FORGIVING GOD, WE DON'T LET FEELINGS OF GUILT AND INADEQUACY STOP US FROM HOLDING BACK IN PREACHING AND TEACHING AND SHARING GOD'S WORD WITH OTHERS IN OUR LIVES. THE CHRISTIAN MOM DOESN'T LET HER FEELINGS AND INADEQUACY STOP HER FROM INSTRUCTING HER CHILDREN IN THOSE BASIC TRUTHS OF GOD'S WORD. THE CHRISTIAN FATHER DOESN'T LET HIS GUILT OVER A PARTICULAR ACTION STOP HIM FROM TELLING HIS CHILD THAT HE'S SORRY AND THAT HE ACTED HASTILY IN PUNISHING. THE DISOBEDIENT SLAVE REPRESENTS THE UNBELIEVER WHO APPEARS TO BE ONE OF THE KING'S OWN SLAVES, BUT IS NOT REALLY. THIS SLAVE STUBBORNLY REFUSES TO DO GOD'S WILL AND THEN BLAMES GOD FOR HIS REFUSAL! "YOU ASK TOO MUCH OF ME, GOD! I CAN'T TELL ANYONE ABOUT YOU! THEY MIGHT LAUGH AT ME! I MIGHT LOSE MY JOB! I CAN'T LIVE UP TO YOUR STANDARDS, GOD! YOU DEMAND PERFECTION!" AND THEN THE DISOBEDIENT SLAVE HAULS OUT HIS BIBLE, WRAPPED UP IN ITS ORIGINAL BOX, AND READS AND SAYS, BUT SEE HOW I'VE PRESERVED YOUR WORD FROM GETTING USED. I'VE KEPT IT HIDDEN AND SAFE. ALL THESE YEARS, I'VE BEEN FAITHFUL NOT TO READ IT TOO MUCH SO THE BINDING WON'T BE WORN OUT." DO YOU FIND YOURSELF WONDERING SOMETIMES WHAT TYPE OF SLAVE YOU ARE? IF YOU'RE LIKE ME, SOMETIMES YOU'LL THINK, "I JUST DON'T MATCH UP TO THOSE SUPER-HUMAN, BIBLICAL CHARACTERS. HOW CAN THERE BE HOPE FOR ME WHEN I'VE OFFENDED GOD SO MUCH WITH MY SINFUL ACTIONS?" BUT LET US LOOK TO GOD'S FORGIVENESS. LOOK TO HIS ARMS EXTENDED IN WELCOME TO YOU ON THE CROSS. JESUS DIED TO SAVE US ... FROM AN ETERNITY IN HELL. HE'S FORGIVEN US ALL OF OUR REBELLION AND OUR MISTAKES AND HE PROCLAIMS, "COME, YOU WHO ARE SET FREE. SERVE ME CHEERFULLY, GLADLY, WITHOUT FEAR. THE WORK OF CAUSING GOD'S KINGDOM TO GROW HAS BEEN ENTRUSTED TO FRAIL, SINFUL, HUMAN BEINGS LIKE YOU AND I. WE ARE SLAVES ... EITHER WILLING OR UNWILLING! THERE'S NO WAY AROUND BEING A SLAVE ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE. IT'S JUST A MATTER OF WHOM YOU ARE GOING TO SERVE WITH YOUR LIFE, EITHER GOD OR SATAN. AS SLAVES OF THE KING, HE HAS EVERY RIGHT TO EXPECT US TO WORK FOR HIM. BUT OUR KING ISN'T A TYRANT! LOOK AT THE TREMENDOUS FREEDOM HE'S GIVEN US WHEN WE SERVE HIM. HE'S GIVEN US THE FREEDOM OF SONS, HEIRS TOGETHER WITH CHRIST! IN OUR CASE, THE WORD SLAVE COULD BE TRANSLATED MORE AS WILLING, DEVOTED SERVANTS. WE CAN SERVE HIM IN WORD AND DEED, IN GOOD TIMES AND IN BAD TIMES. AND THE WORK IS REALLY EASY TO DO. JESUS SAID, "TAKE MY YOKE ... FOR IT IS EASY." THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS! NO GREAT TECHNICAL SKILLS ARE REQUIRED TO RESPOND TO THE LOVE CHRIST HAS SHOWN US BY DYING FOR OUR SINS. WE CAN FREELY CHOOSE TO SHOW ACTS OF MERCY AND LOVE TO THE OTHERS AROUND US IN OUR LIVES AS WE SHARE WITH THEM THE HOPE WE HAVE OF ETERNAL LIFE. AND HE'S GIVEN US HIS VERY OWN WORD WHICH HAS A POWER OF ITS OWN TO CONVINCE PEOPLE. THAT IT IS TRUE AND HAS THE POWER TO SAVE THEM. BUT THE DEVIL WILL ALWAYS TRY TO GET US TO COMPLAIN; IT APPEALS TO OUR SINFUL NATURE: "YOU HAVEN'T GIVEN ME ENOUGH TO WORK WITH. YOU JUST EXPECT TOO MUCH FROM ME, GOD. YOUR WORD IS TOO WEAK TO CHANGE ANYONE." BUT YOU KNOW THAT ISN'T TRUE! BECAUSE YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED THE POWER OF GOD IN YOUR OWN LIFE. THE POWER OF HIS RESURRECTION WHICH TRANSFORMS US. YOU'VE FELT GOD'S FORGIVENESS ERASE THE SCARS OF SIN FROM YOU THROUGH BAPTISM. AND DAILY YOU CLING TO THE PROMISE OF GOD'S WORD THAT WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM HAS THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS AND ETERNAL LIFE. YOU KNOW THAT THE LORD IS GOING TO RETURN TO TAKE YOU TO A PLACE WHERE WORKING FOR HIM WILL ALWAYS BE PLEASURABLE; AS IT WAS DESIGNED TO BE WHEN ADAM AND EVE FIRST SERVED GOD. WHEN THE KING WHO HAS GIVEN US ALL SUCH FREEDOM TO SERVE HIM RETURNS, IT WILL BE WITH THE EXPECTATION THAT HE WILL FIND FAITHFUL WORKERS. AND HE WILL REWARD THOSE WHO ARE FAITHFUL. IT'S NOT A REWARD OWED TO US. BUT A REWARD OF GRACE; A REWARD OF GOD'S UNDESERVED LOVE. AFTER ALL, WE DIDN'T DIE FOR OUR SINS ... JESUS DID! AND THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE ONE WHO CREATED FAITH IN OUR HEARTS AND MAINTAINS THAT FAITH! THEREFORE, NOTHING THAT GOD GIVES TO HIS SLAVES IS "OWED" TO THEM; RATHER, WE ARE DEBTORS IN GRATITUDE TO GOD. YET GOD, FREELY AND IN SPITE OF OUR IMPERFECTION IN SIN, TALKS ABOUT RETURNING A REWARD TO THOSE WHO SERVE FAITHFULLY. IN OUR PARABLE, THE KING RETURNED AND SUMMONED HIS SERVANTS ONLY WITH THE GOOD EXPECTATION OF FINDING OUT WHAT THEY HAD DONE FOR HIM. AND SO IT IS WITH JESUS. OUR KING EXPECTS FAITHFUL WORKERS. JESUS WILL COME BACK ON THE LAST DAY TO REWARD PEOPLE. AS GOD'S WORD SAYS: [2 COR 5:10] "FOR WE MUST ALL APPEAR BEFORE THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST, THAT EACH ONE MAY RECEIVE WHAT IS DUE HIM FOR THE THINGS DONE WHILE IN THE BODY, WHETHER GOOD OR BAD." BUT SOME WILL DISAPPOINT HIM, EVEN AS THE WICKED SLAVE IN OUR TEXT DISAPPOINTED THE KING. IN OUR TEXT, THE KING TOOK AWAY THE LITTLE THAT THE WICKED SERVANT HAD AND GAVE IT TO THE ONE WHO HAD PRODUCED TEN TIMES AS MUCH AS ORIGINALLY GIVEN. AND WE KNOW THIS WILL HOLD TRUE WHEN THE KING RETURNS ON THE LAST DAY, WHEN JESUS JUDGES THE WORLD. IN A TOTALLY DIFFERENT SETTING, BUT WITH THE SAME INTENT JESUS SAID: "THEREFORE, CONSIDER CAREFULLY HOW YOU LISTEN. WHOEVER HAS WILL BE GIVEN MORE; WHOEVER DOES NOT HAVE, EVEN WHAT HE THINKS HE HAS WILL BE TAKEN FROM HIM." [LUKE 8:18] THESE REWARDS ARE BEYOND OUR ABILITY TO COMPREHEND. THEY ARE UNDESERVED. WE ARE ONLY DOING WHAT JESUS WANTS US TO DO AND HAS TOLD US TO DO. AND THEY'RE NOT REWARDS AS WE THINK OF EARTHLY REWARDS. DO YOU WANT TO PICTURE WHAT THOSE REWARDS WILL BE? WHEN THE KING COMES BACK AND SEES FAITHFUL WORKERS, HE WILL GIVE THEM WORK WITH EVEN MORE RESPONSIBILITY TO DO. THAT IS GOD'S REWARD OF UNDESERVED LOVE. TO OUR SIMPLE FLESH HEARING THAT, IT DOESN'T SOUND SO GOOD PERHAPS. 'WE RECEIVE, Uh ... MORE WORK FOR HAVING DONE WORK?' BUT ... THINK OF IT AS A PROMOTION TO A BETTER PAYING JOB IF YOU WILL. IN HEAVEN, DOING THE WILL OF OUR HEAVENLY FATHER WILL BE OUR GREATEST JOY. AND OUR JOBS THERE WILL BE DEPENDENT UPON HOW WE'VE SHOWN OUR LOVE FOR OUR SAVIOR HERE ON EARTH BY DOING WHAT HE'S GIVEN US TO DO. THE KING IS LOOKING FORWARD TO BRINGING HOME HIS FAITHFUL WORKERS. BY GOD'S GRACE, MAY WE BE FOUND TO BE FAITHFUL ON THE LAST DAY. AMEN. [MOTION FOR THE CONGREGATION TO RISE] NOW MAY THE GRACE OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST STRENGTHEN YOU AND PRESERVE YOU IN THE TRUE FAITH TO LIFE EVERLASTING. AMEN.
