Sermon Theme: When God's Word is read, revealing the faithfulness, righteousness and mercy of God, the people understand their sinfulness and helplessness more clearly, responding in the only appropriate way: a prayerful plea for mercy. We, too, must cling to the righteousness and mercy of God - seen most brilliantly in the person and work of Jesus Christ.
