4/9/2019
More
“How could this be the plan? Who’d make a plan like this? Who’d even do it!? It’s questionable at best. Really looking at it, it’s ridiculous, insane. You could almost say its demonic! That’s really the sort of plan it is. Is there another way to explain it?” “A Ram for Isaac, A Ram for You” Judica – Lent 5 2019 by Rev. Aaron Fenker.

“Rejoice and Be Refreshed” Laetare 2019

4/1/2019
More
Maybe you have even lamented like your fathers, “Would that we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt when we sat by the meat pots and ate bread to the full…” Life was so much better before? Ignorance was bliss? But you are not simply physically hungry, because there is a greater hunger and thirst. No amount of earthly bread or the loveliest spring water will satisfy the demands of the Law and death. “Rejoice and Be Refreshed” Laetare 2019 by Rev. Christopher Gillespie....

“The Lord Sees You and Saves You” Oculi – Lent 3 2019

3/24/2019
More
Stress. Daily troubles. Tragedies. Sins. Death. Devil. Hell. In the midst of all that, in our own whirlwind of trouble, we’re broken, desolate, afflicted, all alone. Or so it seems. Sure, what we see is all the mess of this life. Just darkness. Just slavery. Just sin, death, devil, hell. The real question, though, isn’t what you see. The real question is what the Lord sees and what the Lord does. “The Lord Sees You and Saves You” Oculi – Lent 3 2019 by Rev. Aaron Fenker. Copyright Higher...

“Command and Promise” Invocavit 2019

3/11/2019
More
Temptation. The devil's worst is when he uses God's own word, but inverts the command and the promise.

More
Everything gifted? Yes, everything. All means all. Everything means everything. Nothing left out. All gift. Everything’s gift. Everything for life. Everything for godliness. Jesus gives. We receive. “Faith, virtue, knowledge, self-control, endurance, godliness, brotherly affection, love.” All these are a gift from the Lord. He gifts everything for life and godliness. “[Jesus’] divine power has gifted us everything for life and godliness” Ash Wednesday 2019 by Rev. Aaron Fenker. Copyright...

“Mercy looks like a cross” — Quinquagesima 2019

3/4/2019
More
Jesus has to die for sinners, but when we don't see that as the greatest expression of love, the religion seems pointless. The Holy Spirit reveals to us who the Son of David is and opens our mouth to beg for mercy, then to eat and drink it. “Mercy looks like a cross” — Quinquagesima 2019 by Higher Things.

2/25/2019
More
Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh, shelters His tender shoot from the pecking of Satan's beak, from the suffering rays of the midday sun, and from the encroachment of the thorny cares of this world. This Word came forth from the Father's mouth to forgive, to give life, and to take you into eternal salvation. “The Purpose of God’s Word” Sexagesima 2019 by Rev. Christopher Gillespie.

2/19/2019
More
Only the Gospel and Christ's gifts can strengthen us to get on with the long, hard pull of a war that rages, that’s fought for our salvation. Only the Gospel and Christ's gifts can secure the victory. Only the Gospel and Christ's gifts keep us safe in the dirty, disagreeable business of fighting against sin, death, and hell. Septuagesima 2019 – 1 Corinthians 9:26-27 by Rev. Donavon Riley. Copyright Higher Things®, Higher Things - Dare to be Lutheran.
