For All the Saints

Introduction

“God loves us all, both big and small,” a child’s verse declares. The sins of the world are covered. We are able to stand tall before God our righteous judge because in the person of Jesus “salvation has come to this house”—to our house today. In Christ Jesus God seeks us out to save us.

Isaiah 1:10-18
Learn to do good, seek justice, and

Faith Today

Introduction

Genuine repentance and pretentious piety stand in stark contrast in the gospel and all around us. All creation stands in need of God’s forgiveness. Keep the faith. God’s people—“all who have longed for his appearing”—shall be accounted righteous for Jesus’ sake. Our God is merciful to sinners. For all this the assembly glorifies God forever.

Readings and Psalm

  • Jeremiah 14:7-10, 19-2



The Importance of Justice

Introduction

Pray always. Do not lose heart. This is the encouragement of the Christ of the gospel today. Persistence in our every encounter with the divine will be blessed. Wrestle with the word. Remember your baptism again and again. Come regularly to Christ’s table. Persistence in our every encounter with the divine will be blessed.

Readings and Psalm

  • Genesis 32:22-31



Coming to Jesus

Introduction

It’s a miracle! Multiple miracles! The waters of holy baptism have healed us. The body and blood of Jesus in holy communion have made us clean. We have died with Christ and been raised with him. For all this we have returned to offer thanks. From this place we are sent on our way rejoicing to share the good news.

Readings

  • 2 Kings 5:1-3, 7-15c

            Psalm 67: 1-7; Matthew 7:1-5
 
Most of us as Christians have things we believe, count on, and sometimes tell others. But many times we use quotes and pithy sayings that we believe are in the Bible. And sometimes we find out, they are not.

It is important to examine these particular “half truths” because they can sometimes hurt others. In fact, they can lead people

God Helps Those Who Help Themselves

Most of us as Christians have things we believe, count on, and sometimes tell others. But many times we use quotes and pithy sayings that we believe are in the Bible. And sometimes we find out, they are not.

It is important to examine these particular “half truths” because they can sometimes hurt others. In fact, they can lead people to make conclusions about God that are not true. Or even worse, turn people away from faith.

More than that, we hope that by examining these beliefs, we w

Managing the Fear Factor

Introduction

Jesus says, “It is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” It is God’s promise from the beginning—to Abraham, to the early church, and to the “little flock” of which we are a part today in assembly. Faith, God’s baptismal gift, trusts the promises of God. Have no fear.

Readings

  • Genesis 15:1-6



Christ the Center

Today’s texts offer instruction and encouragement for all who are occasionally overwhelmed by the “unhappy business” of

 life. Jesus urges us to take care and be on guard against all kinds of greed. We who have died with Christ in holy baptism have also been
