The King Who Can Be Trusted

“Unless I am convicted by Scripture and plain reason . . . my conscience is captive to the Word of God, I cannot and will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. God help me. Amen.”
– Martin Luther before the Diet of Worms in 1521

Sermon Text: Daniel 3:1-30

Second Scripture ReadingMark 1:21-28

A Prayer for Today: “O Lord, we beseech you, let your continual pity cleanse and defend your Church; and, because it cannot continue in safety without your succour, preserve it evermore by your help and goodness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.” (The Sixteenth Sunday after Trinity – BCP 1662)

Reflect: “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” -Isaiah 43:2
