Reflecting on Lent
Lent is Here! Lent has started and March is packed full of Lenten services. So what is the point of Lent? Lent is a solemn time, a time of reflection, a time where we prepare to celebrate our risen Lord. In this season of Lent, we put away our alleluias, we put a veil on the cross, and we turn to focus on ourselves. Lent is a very different season in our calendar. Usually we’reRead More

The Power of the Cross of Jesus Christ
Saved by Faith Alone John 12:32: “And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.” When Jesus died on the cross, He brought to the hearts of people numerous gifts and blessings.

When Jesus commended His soul to His Heavenly FatherRead More
Closer to the Day of Our Salvation
The New Year What do you think about the new year? Is it something that excites you or is it something you’re not too ready for? Time is constantly moving onward; we feel it as we age and our bodies groan as our joints get older.

The Christmas Truce of WW I – December 24, 1914
Truce! It is so hard to believe, that in the heat of battle, in one of the most horrific wars the face of this planet has ever seen, civility could break out, at least for a time. This happened on Christmas Eve, 1914, late in the evening when British and German forces, arrayed across from each other in foxholes on the Western Front, stopped shooting at each other and instead, sang to each other. OnRead More

Knowing that God loved us, the totally unworthy sinners, so much that he sent Jesus to be with us and die for us. He came to us just as any other person. The baby Jesus was special. He lived as one of us. But yet, He knew He had a job toRead More

The Christmas Feast Christmas is coming. It is a joyous time of feasting. The Church feasts upon the Word of God in sermon, song, and sacrament. We hear the proclamation of the message of the angels: “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord” (LukeRead More
Jesus Came Down on Christmas Day
The Word of the Lord. John 1:14: “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” All other revelries connected to Christmas are a pointless display unless behind them there is an appreciation of the amazing event that Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem to be our Savior and Lord. The closeness of God isRead More
