"Those who seek the Lord lack no good thing!" Laetare 2020
March 26, 2020 Laetare (Lent 4) John 6:1-15  We do not know what is in store for our body, our life, or our congregation. We trust that He will preserve His Word and our faith until our end or He comes again. The fact that we here at all is testimony to the miracle of God’s grace and mercy. We give thanks for the multitude of blessings the Father has given our body and life. But we all the more store up the treasures of Jesus Christ, His Word and the holy Sacraments, confident that upon this bread from heaven, the church will remain forever.

"We fear no ill, They shall not overpow'r us" - Oculi 2020
15. March 2020 Oculi Luke 11:14-28 Where God’s finger is, there is His kingdom. The finger of God is the Word of Christ. This finger is mighty, active, powerful, and victorious. He is the stronger man, who has attacked and overthrown the strong man. The strong man snapped at His heel but the same heel crushed his head. The Stronger One has come and conquered him and taken from him all his weapons. You cannot be deceived. You are not lost. You are Christ’s today and forever.

You are given to share in all He is and has, in all He has done and will do for your salvation. Even His invincible power against temptation is yours. You share in His victory and His power over His and your enemies, including the devil. And joined to Him in Baptism, He is fighting for you. As you are in Him, so you, Arabella, and all the baptized will conquer.

"Love is Christ crucified for you" - Quinquagesima 2020
23. February 2020 Quinquagesima 1 Cor. 13:1-13; Luke 18:31-43 Love is to be delivered over to the Gentiles. Love patiently suffers the scorn and shame of enemies and friends alike. Love is kind to those who persecute you. Love is mocked and shamefully treated. Love is spit upon. Love is flogged and killed. Love is crucified. Love gives His life for His friends. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love obeys the Father even unto death. Love dies for the sins of the whole world. Jesus is love. Whenever you hear love in the Holy Scriptures, you hear Jesus.

"Jesus is the bountiful sower who never stops sowing His Word!" Sexagesima 2020
15. February 2020 Sexagesima Luke 8:4-15 Take heart, dear Christian! Christ Jesus has again today in your hearing given you ears to hear and tongues to confess His Holy Name. He has tilled your hard heart, crushed your rocky soil, and weeded out every care in you, so that your entire faith, hope, and love is in Christ and His salvation alone. The sower went out to sow, and He has accomplished what He set forth to do for you.

Bible Study: "Lazarus, come forth!" - John 11:24-44
Jesus can do nothing apart from the Father (5:19, 30; 8:28). He does the works the Father sent Him to accomplish (5:36; 4:34). This is a real relationship with real, personal interaction, not just a revealing of the relationship of the divine persons. The presence of “the Jews” is helpful, because they have come to the grave, confident that Lazarus’ death is fact and death is invincible. And then Jesus overcomes what is impossible and gives thanks to the Father in full dependence. He is commanding faith in Him and the Father who sent Him! This has been the purpose and goal since the Prologue (1:14, 51).

5. February 2020 Transfiguration Matthew 17:1-9 For Christ turned His face to Jerusalem, suffering all in glory, that you would be glorified in Him. He has forgiven all that would keep you from being in the presence of God. You are given not only to approach Him without terror but are given to be joined to Him. He gives you His glorious flesh and blood, food and drink rich in grace and mercy. Now you pay approach God and live. Now you may approach Him and be with Him. Now you see His face and you have peace.

"Jesus Comes into the Temple For You" Purification and Presentation 2020
2. February 2020 Presentation and Purification Luke 2:22-32 Who God is, His relationship to you, and what He has done and continues to do for you, must be revealed to you.“No one has ever seen God; [but] the only God, who is at the Father’s side, He has made him known” (John 1:18). Jesus is the only begotten of the Father, who knows the heart of the Father, and can alone reveal the Father’s thoughts. He alone has seen the Father. And therefore, only He can tell us who God is. “Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him” (Mt 11:27).

"I too am a man under authority" Epiphany 3 2020
26. January 2020 Epiphany 3 Matthew 8:1-13 Power struggle divides us into disputes. You put brother against brother or set yourself against your pastor in an attempt to wrestle control of the situation. In the end, no one wins…except for Satan. Only the evil one benefits when you Christians war with themselves. The faith once delivered to the saints is undermined and destroyed. You will be left either despondent, scandalized, or an apostate. The devil and his demons rejoice over even one sinner who rejects the faith.

Christ Jesus has come to you and made you His own by His shed blood and innocent suffering and death. He may look no more impressive than a twelve-year-old boy as He comes hidden in the words of a book, with water, in an evangelical proclamation, and under bread and wine. Yet, you, by faith still confess that you have entered through His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise.

"You will share in Christ’s sufferings" Christmas 2 2019
05. January 2019 Christmas 2 Matthew 2:13-23 Your life is like St. Joseph: a hard road to walk, no doubt. Suffer evil quietly. Serve each other in your vocations. Don’t be ashamed that life is difficult for you. But, just as it is for Joseph, so it is for you. Rejoice now even in suffering. In the end, the glory of what God has done in and through you will be shown. You are blessed while you suffer because God himself is with you as you share in Christ’s sufferings. Your faithful creator will accomplish good according to His will. You may not understand now, but in faith you know it is true as He is true. Everything will work out for your good. On the last day, you’ll be able to look back and rejoice with understanding.

Merry Christmas! Today’s Gospel reading is the shortest of the church year. But packed in those few words is the entire proclamation of the Gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ! Everything you need to know about Jesus is right there.

"Waiting with Hope" Christmas 1 2019
29. December 2019 Christmas 1 Luke 2:32-40 Waiting is not easy. The life of the baptized is full of trial and temptation. As long as we live in this mortal body, the new man in Christ will always be at odds with the old man of death. Waiting with hope needs the assurance of faith. Thus the Holy Spirit brings you to faith by the preaching of the Word, through the new birth of Holy Baptism, through the declaration of sins forgiven, and through the sacred meal of Christ’s own flesh and blood. He does this in His Holy Christian Church where this one baptism is given and received. And He continues to nourish and strengthen your faith that you would be steadfast until Christ brings all His promises to fulfillment.

And who doesn’t like a birthday party, especially when the child given is Himself your salvation and the savior of the whole world? Today is truly a day worth celebrating! For unto you is born a savior, Christ the Lord! But there’s another birthday today that we celebrate and that’s yours! For unto you a Savior is born, and in Him you, too, are given new life, a new birth.

24. December 2019 Christmas Midnight Luke 2:1-14 It may be dark and half-spent is the night. But the light has come. Jesus has come. Salvation is yours. And He still comes! His light still pierces the darkness. He still opens heaven wide, as we sing with saints, angels, and the whole host of heaven. We sing the song the angels sang because Jesus still comes! He still shines into the darkness of hearts and lives with His light and life. He forgives, renews, and strengthens by His Word and Spirit. And just as there is nothing that can separate you from the love of Christ Jesus, so we learn this night that there is no darkness in you or in this world that can overcome the glory of Jesus, the only-begotten Son. He has and will always shine His light upon you, tonight and always.

Bathsheba and Mary - Mothers of the Sons of David, Advent Midweek 3
Following after the blessed virgin Mary’s faithfulness in the New Testament are Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, Junia, Sapphira, Lydia, Phoebe, Aquila, and many others. So, too, women have a place in the church, whether they were born outside of faith like Ruth, whether they come from a checkered past like Rahab, whether they laugh at God’s promises like Sarah, whether they listen to temptation’s voice like Eve, and even if their lives are marked by scandal like Bathsheba. As Mary sang, “ [He has] exalted the lowly. And He has filled the hungry with good things.” That’s mercy. That’s forgiveness. That’s Jesus!

December 19, 2019
"Are you the Coming One?" Advent 3 2019
15. December 2019 Advent 3 Matthew 11:2-10 John needed forgiveness, life, and salvation. You do, too. If you don’t know this need now, there will come an hour when you will. You’ll hit rock bottom. You’ll be imprisoned by your guilt. You’ll be horrified at what you did or was done to you. You’ll wonder and doubt God’s love for even you. You’ll consider all that you have done and left undone and despair. Just like John, so with you. Look to Jesus, the author and perfecter of your faith. Look to Jesus whose bloody death upon the cross of Calvary forgives your every sin, covers all your guilt and shame, and satisfies the wrath that is to come for you. Look to Jesus who preaches over and over the good news you, the sinner, desperately need.

"Lift Up Your Heads" Advent 2 2019
08. December 2019 Advent 2 Luke 21:25-36 Judgment falls only on those who refuse to believe there is no judgment. Judgment is for those who choose to stand before a Judge—who no longer has any record of sin— and make their stand on their life that no longer exists. Redemption comes to “whoever calls on the name of the Lord.” (Romans 10:13; Acts 2:21) Heaven is the gift every one of us already has by the death of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world (Rev. 138). Heaven is the inheritance we have in our baptism into Christ Jesus. The church proclaims Christ’s death and resurrection, especially as we eat His body and drink His blood. Redemption is yours in the forgiveness of Christ, His life, and His heaven. Therefore, “Look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” AMEN.

"The LORD is YOUR Righteousness" Advent 1 2019
01. December 2019 Advent 1 Jeremiah 23:5-8 For the last few weeks under the "end of the church year" our theme has been Christ returning in judgment. Now as we enter Advent and the beginning of the church year, our eyes look at judgment through the babe in the manger and through the cross towards the judgment. God’s promise is made manifest, delivered to you just as He said. Through his gracious will, you have eternal rest of Christ. In him, you are safe. In Him, you are secure. In Him, you are named His own. His righteousness is your righteousness. Christ is your Emmanuel. He ransoms captive Israel, saving you from the depths of hell. You see God's gracious action—His promised son sent for you—so that His righteousness is your righteousness.

"For whom the Lord loves He corrects, Just as a father the son in whom he delights" Thanksgiving 2019
28. November 2019 Thanksgiving Day Deuteronomy 8:1-10 “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” It sounds sweet and good until you realize what he means. St. Paul is echoing Moses! Give thanks and in everything? Even under discipline, with hardship, in hunger? Even when things get rough, when they don’t go your way, when you struggle, and even when you face death? Absolutely, because in everything God is working faith for you in His Son Jesus Christ!

I see in you, lamps lit with the light of Christ who lightens the world. I see in you, the betrothed and beloved of God, trusting in your Baptism into Jesus. I see Christ’s wholly forgiven bride, keeping watch for His coming, listening to His Word, and even now feasting on His body and blood. I see restored Israel, the new Jerusalem, adorned as a bride for her husband. I don’t see anyone sleeping, but every member of Christ’s church and bride awake, praying His Word, singing the faith, recalling all His wonderful works. I see in you, Jesus doing what only He can do: giving wisdom, oil, and wicks for your lamps."

"For the Sake of the Elect" Trinity 25 2019
10. November 2019 Trinity 25 Matthew 24:15-28 The church isn’t really all that concerned with impressive spectacles and buildings, moving hearts to tears, and stirring up generous gifts from impassioned pleas. The church is concerned with delivering God’s kingdom, because Jesus will have His kingdom. The church is concerned with sitting at Jesus’s feet, listening to Him, and receiving from Him everything needed both now and for eternity.

"Blessings Accomplished and Given" All Saints' Day 2019
03. November 2019 All Saints’ Day Matthew 5:1-12 The Beatitudes are first and foremost a description of Jesus’ work for you and secondly as blessings that are given to you. These are not commandments but rather descriptions of God’s people with promises attached to them. Let’s not run Jesus’ words today according to the letter but by the Spirit, that is, by way of gift.
