—GOD RULES IN CHURCH AND STATE
Absolve, we implore You, O Lord, Your people from their offenses, that from the bonds of our sins which by reason of our frailty we have brought upon us we may be delivered by Your bountiful goodness; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Old Testament: Proverbs 8:11–22: Solomon reminds us that to the extent the kings of the earth have any wisdom, they have it from God.
Epistle: Philippians 3:17–21: The Apostle Paul instructs us that as Christians we should understand that our true "citizenship" is not of this world but is rather in heaven, so that our affections are not resting upon things that are fleeting but the eternal truths of the Gospel.
