As We Gather

We tend to look for things to make faith easier. Signs, wonders, or just little hints here and there would help. But the disciples had all these things and heard Jesus promise His resurrection, and still they gathered behind the locked doors of their fears. What we do have is Christ, His Word that bestows and sustains our faith, and His Holy Sacrament wherein He feeds us with His body and blood. Though we have not seen with our eyes, we see with faith and join with doubting Thomas to confess, “My Lord and my God!”

Sunday Morning Adult Bible Study - Myth or Faith.
In Person or Live Stream.

The world has its way of squeezing us into its own mold. People around us hold to all kinds of “myths” concerning God, eternity, humanity, and reality. People have all kinds of misconceptions concerning those things that were revealed to us in Scripture. Make no mistake, the myths held by the world around us are out to influence us. Therefore it is important for us to distinguish between fact and fiction, myth and faith. Join us for this examination into Christian teachings.

“Christmas, Good Friday, and Easter clinched it for Paul. If God’s Son, divine and holy from all eternity, would take on human flesh for me, obey the commandments for me, suffer and die for me, and rise again to guarantee my forgiveness and resurrection, there can be no doubt. He loves me.” Rev. Mark Jeske, Time of Grace – A Life Quote from Lutherans For Life • lutheransforlife.org

John 20:19 – “Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.’ ”

The peace we have in Jesus is what makes a life of good works possible. Since we know that it is Jesus who saved us, and not our works, we are now free to do good works not out of self-interest, but for the right reasons: out of thanksgiving toward God and love for our neighbors.
