8/18/2019
No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.

“How can someone satisfy them with bread here in the desert?” Trinity 7 2019

8/4/2019
Your faith is either in what your ears are hearing from Jesus, or your trust is in what your eyes are seeing around you. There’s no in-between.

“No More Righteousness Games” Trinity 6 2019

You live as dual citizens of earth and heaven. You live in this temporary world but you have also be given the world to come. You have in Christ Jesus, every bit of righteousness that God demands.

7/23/2019
"When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, 'Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.' But Simon answered and said to Him, 'Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net.' And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking." Copyright Higher Things®, Higher Things - Dare to be Lutheran. Support the work of Higher Things.

“The kingdom of God has come near to you” Pentecost 4 2019

“The Neighbor at Your Gate” Trinity 1 2019

6/23/2019
Faith does not come getting or giving earthly gifts. Faith comes only by the Word of God. Faithful Abram believed when the Lord spoke. Lazarus heard the voice of the Lord by Moses and the Prophets and believed. Such Spirit-given faith holds fast even as we pray with the Psalmist "How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever? How long will you hide Your face from me?” Copyright Higher Things®, Higher Things - Dare to be Lutheran. Support the work of Higher Things.

“When the Comforter Comes” Exaudi 2019

6/3/2019
The Spirit’s got one job. He’s the Paraclete, the Comforter, the Helper. He’s your Comforter, your Helper. That’s what He does for you, and He does it just like Jesus says, “He will testify about Me.” Copyright Higher Things®, Higher Things - Dare to be Lutheran. Support the work of Higher Things.

“According to the Promise and in the Name of Jesus” Rogate 2019

5/26/2019
Christian prayer is a wonderful gift. Jesus today promises that our Father hears our prayers for His sake. He tells how to pray, what to pray, and why to pray. And thus, prayer is His gift to us, so that with all boldness and confidence we may pray as dear children of our Heavenly Father. Copyright Higher Things®, Higher Things - Dare to be Lutheran.

“Christianity is the crucified and risen savior for you” – Easter 3 2019

5/5/2019
The world tempts us to measure it otherwise. By works. By wealth. We are sinners suffering in a painful world. We've told ourselves that if Christianity were true, we wouldn't be here like this. The truth is, if Christianity were true, Jesus would be. The good shepherd seeks out his sheep. Copyright Higher Things®, Higher Things - Dare to be Lutheran. Support the work of Higher Things.

“The Recalcitrant Mule Whom the Lord Saves” Easter 2 2019

4/29/2019
For all that Thomas is, I thank God. Yes, for his pig-headedness, for his doubt, for his denial, for his dyed-in-the-wool skepticism — for all that, I thank God. Why? Because, as St. Gregory put it, "More does the doubt of Thomas help us to believe, than the faith of the disciples who believed." Copyright Higher Things®, Higher Things - Dare to be Lutheran.

“Jesus Split Death Wide Open” Easter Sunrise 2019

4/23/2019
Death. He’s your enemy. The enemy we’re all afraid of. No one wants to die. We’re not too afraid of the devil, we’re generally not too afraid of our sins either. We should be. But the fact that one second your here and the next your not, well, that’s just terrifying! Copyright Higher Things®, Higher Things - Dare to be Lutheran. Support the work of Higher Things.

4/9/2019
“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?” Copyright Higher Things®, Higher Things - Dare to be Lutheran. Support the work of Higher Things.

“Rejoice and Be Refreshed” Laetare 2019

4/1/2019
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. Copyright Higher Things®, Higher Things - Dare to be Lutheran. Support the...
