Behold, the dwelling of God is with mankind. He will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself will be with them, and be their God. Revelation 21:3
What Child is This
Collect of the Day
Eternal Father, who gave to your incarnate Son the holy name of Jesus to be the sign of our salvation: Plant in every heart, we pray, the love of him who is the Savior of the world, our Lord Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.
Psalter: Psalm 103
Lessons: Genesis 17:1-12, 15-16; Colossians 2:6-12; John 16:23-30
Gentle Lord Jesus Christ, who was circumcised on the eighth day, shedding the first drops of your blood for our sins, to redeem us from the grievous burden and awful curse of the law, we call upon you with our whole heart, to circumcise our hearts, taking away the veil of our unbelief and choking out all sinful lusts and desires of the flesh, that we may become new creatures, comforted in every time of need by your most Holy Name; and, as children of the new covenant, love one another until we shall all be finally gathered unto you, our Savior. Amen.
