He is Both, Host & Guest

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
Probably the greatest “secret” about Christian worship, what many people do not know or realize, is this: While many may think we “go to church” to do something for God or pay our respects to Him, we Christians actually “go to church” in order that God may do something for us! To be sure, both aspects are present in our worship services. Once when Jesus visited the home of Mary and Martha, Martha was busy being a good hostess, an example of hospitality. When she complained that her sister Mary wasn’t helping, however, the Lord didn’t rebuke her for her work...

The Bible Has Made the United States Great

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
Life Quote from Lutherans for Life: “We cannot read the history of our rise and development as a nation, without reckoning with the place the Bible has occupied in shaping the advances of the Republic…..Where we have been the truest and most consistent in obeying its precepts, we have attained the greatest measure of contentment and prosperity.”  Franklin Delano Roosevelt, October 6, 1935...

Pastors Share God's Word

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
Pastors have been given the privilege and the responsibility to rightly proclaim God’s Word.  It is not their words and thoughts to express, but rather God’s words for His people, words by which God gives us hope for this life and the life to come.  When pastors share God’s Word, we then hear what God would have us hear for our eternal salvation. ...

True Discipleship with Jesus = Salvation

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
The “way to righteousness with God” was known from ancient times through the keeping of the Law as manifested in the Sacrificial System God had established. But along comes Jesus and He “upsets the apple cart”. The Law is impossible to keep and perfection is required for salvation. Only by true discipleship with Jesus is salvation possible. The Sermon on the Mount describes what “discipleship with Jesus” looks like in day to day living. Let the “Sermon” speak to you....

Chritianity Isn't Decorative

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
Life Quote from Lutherans for Life: “Christianity isn’t decorative.  God is for real life, modeling in Jesus what perfect forgiveness looks like.  As long as your relationship doesn’t risk your safety or your sanity, it’s probably better to dig in right where you are.  Some waste a lifetime hunting for contentment, running with resentment from this person to that, searching for the human equivalent of a pot of gold; but quick hitches aren’t quick fixes.  Rainbows come after storms.  So, build up your partner, laugh together, be vulnerable, and let the Spirit sculpt you into a better self for that someone.” ...

Follow Me

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
Jesus is sincere as He says, “Follow Me”.  He called His disciples by saying, “Follow Me”, and they followed.  In this text, Jesus says, “Follow Me”, knowing just how difficult a thing He asks.  He says to us, “Follow Me”.  In faith, we follow, always looking toward our eternal salvation.  We follow Him, and He is faithful in leading those who believe. ...

If God Was Present

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
We like to think that if God were physically present with us in life, everything would be wonderful.  We learn from the man, freed from demons, that God sent him away to “declare how much God has done for you.”  God sends us on our daily way in life, so that we, too, may declare how much God has done for us through His Son, Jesus. ...

Father's Day Commitment

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
Life Quote from Lutherans for Life: “Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was born of flesh and blood so that through His redemptive work we could become a part of His eternal family. And in this very special family, the Lord enables Christian fathers to be a blessing to their children.  Far from being a cut-and-run begetter, a Christian father makes a commitment to provide his children with a loving, healthy, stable, safe, and well-supplied family home.”  Rev. Mark Gullerud, pastor at Redeemer Lutheran Church, Bowdle, South Dakota...

Marriage

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
“Marriage is the amazing teamwork of male and female; indeed, the two eyes of the human race.  Both eyes are needed for a proper perspective on all matters of life.  Biblical marriage is the only pairing that allows a man formed from the dust of the ground to welcome the help of a woman made from his rib.  The world is better for it.”  Linda Bartlett, former president of Lutherans For Life   ...
