Together in the Word - November 25 - December 1, 2018

“Advent” comes from the Latin word for “coming” or “arrival.” In this week's Bible readings, Jesus urges us to be ready for his coming. It could be at any time. It will bring far greater destruction than when the Lord leveled Sodom. What a difference that outlook makes in our prayers! How much we long to see our Lord and experience fully the freedom he bought for us with his blood. Here is this week's "Together in the Word" for your...

  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...

Together in the Word - November 4-10, 2018

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.

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...

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...
