Together in the Word - May 20, 2018

On Trinity Sunday we celebrate the mystery of God being three-in-one, a mystery he reveals both for his glory and on our behalf. Isaiah rightly trembled at God’s holiness. But to Nicodemus Jesus reveals something even more profound about the Trinity. The Father sent the Son to die in our place; whoever trusts in the Son, by the new birth the Spirit gives, has life with the Trinity forever. Here is this week's "Together in the Word" for your personal and/or family...

Together in the Word - May 13, 2018

Many problems seem unsolvable, but in Christ, our God is the God of the impossible. The day of Pentecost gave clear evidence of the power of the Spirit of Jesus to change things dramatically. Just as dead bones became living, breathing beings in the Ezekiel's vision, so people dead in sin become spiritually alive through the message the Holy Spirit has orchestrated and communicated through believers. Here is this week's "Together in the Word" for your personal and/or family...

Together in the Word - May 6, 2018

Once he had fulfilled his rescue mission here, Jesus visibly ascended into heaven before his disciple’s eyes. God exalted Jesus again to his position of glory and honor as the King of kings and Lord of lords. Jesus now reigns over all things for our eternal good. Our ascended Lord watches over his Church. He intercedes for us with the Father. He protects us with his power. He guides us with his Holy Word of truth. Here is this week's "Together in the Word" for your...

Together in the Word - April 29, 2018

What one word summarizes all of God’s commands? Love. Luke tells us about a Christian lady full of love for the widows of her city. The Apostle John teaches us that love for God and his Word compels us to carefully examine all teachings and churches in the light of Scripture. Jesus himself commands us to love one another as he has loved us. Here is this week's "Together in the Word" for your personal and/or family devotional use.   God bless you, as you hear and...

Together in the Word - April 22, 2018

  Through faith in Christ’s sacrifice for us, we are connected to the Risen Savior as a branch is connected to a grape vine. The result of being connected to Jesus is that we will now bear fruit. The fruit of a Christian is a life of love. Out of thanks for God’s love, we now seek to love others in many ways, including telling them the good news of Christ. As believers we seek to show love not only in what we say, but also in what we do. Here is this week's...

Jesus is our Good Shepherd. We are his sheep. Our Good Shepherd loves us so much that he gave his life for us. He knows us all by name. He protects us from our enemies. He gives us courage and strength. He continually brings more sheep into his fold. He promises eternal life to all who believe in him. How great is the love that God has lavished upon us! Here is this week's "Together in the Word" for your personal and/or family devotional use.   God bless you, as you hear...

  Does telling others about Christ intimidate you? Do you fear how people will react? This week we see that Jesus’ death and resurrection give believers confidence. Our sins have been washed clean in his blood. We have forgiveness for any and all sins. Such truths give us the courage to witness boldly to the lost about Christ’s love and the rescue we have in his name. Here is this week's "Together in the Word" for your personal and/or family devotional...

  Our faith is based on firmest possible ground: Jesus, our risen Lord. We cannot see him. We cannot touch him. We have not yet experienced the joy that will be ours forever. We come to know and trust in him as our Savior only through the precious Gospel that is revealed to us in the words of Scripture. Here is this week's "Together in the Word" for your personal and/or family devotional use.   God bless you, as you hear and read his Word and grow in faith this...

  What does Jesus’ resurrection mean for us? It means that just as he lives, we also will live―bodily, eternally. Through faith in Jesus we have victory of death and the devil. Because of Jesus’ death and resurrection, we have a place in God's heavenly banquet where there will be no more sorrow, suffering or death. Here is this week's "Together in the Word" for your personal and/or family devotional use.   God bless you, as you...

Together in the Word - March 18, 2018

  Our Lord is so different from earthly rulers. The first Palm Sunday Jesus was coming to finish history's most crucial battle, yet he did not enter Jerusalem as a mighty warrior. He had no army. Jesus came on a lowly donkey, with twelve average men following him. Crowds greeted him with words from Psalm 118―words that rang to the heavens then, words still lifted to Jesus today: “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” Here is this week's...
