  • Last S. of Church Year

    Text: Luke 23:27-43“Today you will be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23:43) The Gospel text seems out of place for this time of the year. As we pass through the final Sunday of Pentecost and prepare to receive Christ during the Advent season, the crucifi...
  • Third-Last of Church Year

    YOU ARE THE SONS OF THE RESURRECTION: Jesus said, “The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage, but those who are considered worthy to attain to that age and to the resurrection from the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage, for they ca...
  • All Saints Day

    Today we celebrate All Saint’s Day. We remember the saints who have entered their eternal dwellings. We remember the saints who are beneath the altar in Revelation, crying out for God to take vengeance for their blood which was shed in persecution. We r...

    GOD’S KINGDOM IS NOT TAKEN BY FORCE!: Grace to you and peace from Him who was and who is and who is to come, and for the seven Spirits who are before His throne (that is the Holy Spirit) and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from th...
  • Pentecost 21

    I quote: “We must understand that God is not joking, but that he will be angry and punish us if we do not pray, just as he punishes all other kinds of disobedience.” (Large Catechism, Kolb, pg. 443 paragraph 18) Thus wrote Dr. Martin Luther in the Lar...
  • Pentecost 20

    As Jesus journeyed up to Jerusalem, one leper out of the ten returned to praise God. With His face on the ground at the feet of Jesus, Jesus said to Him, “Rise and journey; your faith has made you well.” Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, grace, mer...
  • Pentecost 19

    Jesus didn’t think such a possibility was far fetched for He is really asking His disciples if they expected God to say thank you to them. “Will any of you who has a servant plowing or keeping sheep say to him when he has come in from the field, ‘Co...
  • Pentecost 18

    You don’t have to look long and hard to find a charity case these days. Suffering is here and it needs someone to clean it up. So also with Lazarus who sat at the gate of the rich man, the rich man who feasted sumptuously every day! In fact, feasted so ...
  • Pentecost 17

    Grace mercy and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord. “There was a rich man who had a manager, and charges were brought to him that this man was wasting his possessions.” Dear managers of God’s gifts; the same Greek word is used for t...
  • Pentecost 16

    It’s big entertainment for millions and big money for a few. Interest in spirit beings is high. This fall’s TV lineup is littered with fantasy shows about super spiritual beings, including angels. They rescue people in a fix. They do battle with polit...
  • Pentecost 15

    Dear Christians, in the most gracious, all-encompassing, life-changing way, Christ on Calvary said of the world’s sin; “Charge that to my account”. “I hereby take care of all of it”. If you do not believe that Jesus’ sacrificial death settled ...
  • Pentecost 14

    Did you know that tickets for this upcoming season opener for the Packers range in price from $138 to $25,002. Can you imagine, $25,002? That is a seat of honor, a seat not everyone can sit in. I know I’ll never be in that seat. I might be able to make ...
  • Pentecost 13

    At the Christ on Campus conference here in June, campus pastors and vicars from a dozen states discussed the struggles of and threats against university students today. One conclusion of the participants and the speakers was that there is a pressing need ...
  • Pentecost 12

    Most people don’t think of the Berlin wall as beneficial. The Iron Curtain has not been extolled as advantageous. Prison walls topped with barbed wire do not evoke beautiful poems from the pens of poets. Trenches filled with spent artillery shells and b...
  • Pentecost 11

    Jesus spoke the parable of the rich fool to a crowd of thousands. He warned them that life without being rich toward God has eternal consequences. Then He addressed only His disciples showing the close connection between richness toward God and the remova...
  • Pentecost 10

    Today’s Gospel records two terrible tragedies in this passing world. The first was brothers fighting over their father’s inheritance. This caused Jesus to tell a parable of the second tragedy - a rich man who hoarded his wealth. The immediate backgrou...
  • Pentecost 9

    The disciple’s request seems strange: “Lord, teach us to pray.” Who doesn’t know how to pray? These are the disciples we’re talking about. They’re Jesus’ closest companions. They’re with Him all the time. Surely they’ve seen Him pray bef...
