Together in the Word - November 18-24, 2018

  The eternal majesty of the King of Kings shines forth in our readings for this week. Jesus rules as King over all things. He deserves all glory, honor and praise. He is the eternal King who will come again in glory to judge. He is the King who left his majestic throne; he was so humble that he gave his life for his subjects. 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...

In the end of the world, Jesus will come back in glory to judge both the living and the dead. Those who believe in him receive a verdict of “not-guilty.” Those who do not believe stand condemned to the eternal suffering of hell. 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 week! Your Brother in Christ, Pastor Wagner *Our...

Together in the Word - October 28 - November 3, 2018

On Reformation Sunday we give thanks to God for the salvation that comes by his grace alone. We thank him for the faith he gives us to trust his promise. We thank him for the pure Word, which gives and strengthens that faith. At the same time we understand that we can fall away from that grace in unbelief. We recognize that our faith will be challenged daily by Satan, our society and our sinful self. Therefore let us never stray from his life-giving Word. Here is this week's...

Together in the Word - October 21-27, 2018

Faithfulness in preaching the Word of peace. Faithfulness in the midst of internal divisions and strifes. Faithfulness in the face of outward persecution. Faithfulness, not perfection, is all that the Lord asks of us; the rest is the work of his Spirit. So we faithfully contend for the truth in the face of opposition from within and around us, seeking God's strength and blessing, as we serve and follow him. Here is this week's "Together in the Word" for your personal and/or...

Together in the Word - October 14-20, 2018

Before Jesus ascended into heaven, he made his mission for the Church clear. Be my witnesses. Tell everyone what I have done for you. Take the good news to the ends of the earth. The awesome message of our salvation through Jesus is our great heritage. It comforts us and encourages us in the face of our own sins and failures, as it moves us boldly and joyfully to carry out the mission entrust to us.  Here is this week's "Together in the Word" for your personal and/or...

Together in the Word - October 7-13, 2018

“I’m a little envious,” we claim. It is far worse. Envy is wishing God were not so good to someone else, ignoring how good God is to us. And our greed? “Greed is idolatry,” God says (Colossians 3:5). Still, God in Christ provides for all our needs, including the greatest -- forgiveness of sin. He places in the repentant believer’s heart proper priorities. God even promises everlasting treasure in his holy presence, all by his grace. Here is this...

God’s plan for man was perfect. He created woman for man. They were to “become one flesh.” Sin entered the world and separation replaced union--separation from God and separation from one another. Bitter marriages and divorces are two examples. But thanks be to God, Jesus “even suffered death, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone” and create new life and new promise of union. Here is this week's "Together in the Word" for...

Sinners sin. We all sin. But we cannot excuse our sin because we act like others. Sin requires radical surgery: Jesus says: “If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off” (Mark 9:43). The good news is that Jesus was “cut off” from his own Father through his death on the cross, in order to reunite us with God and with one another. As his servants we are the “salt” of the earth, standing out as we show allegiance to Jesus and the gospel. Here is this...

True greatness is a paradox. It grows out of seeing ourselves as small and God as great. Such greatness has its center in love--both God’s great love for us in Christ and our love for our neighbor. Such love leads to genuine, humble service. Here is this week's "Together in the Word" for your personal and/or family devotional use. (For more about this resource, its purpose, and how it can be used, please refer to the email that introduced this...
