“Joyfully Lutheran”

Sermon for January, 26th 2020

1 Thessalonians 5:16-24 urges us to rejoice always! Do you realize that if we took that as seriously as God intends, we would be defined by our joyful attitude and people would want to know what has given us such hope! Actually, I think that’s the point!
This year, for National Lutheran Schools Week, we focus on the joy that we have in being Lutheran Christians. We understand that living a sanctified life is not a life of tiresome effort, but it is simply living in joyful thanksgiving for His grace and mercy every moment of every day!

“His Ways Are Not Our Ways”


     In our Gospel lesson this week, Jesus’ actions confound John the Baptist to the point that John asks if Jesus is the one that he is should be looking for, or should he expect another.
It is easy to feel let down by Jesus when He does not conform to our image of Him. However, if we continue to trust in Jesus’ rule and reign over our lives despite the fact that things are not going as we may have planned, understanding that His Ways are not our ways, we find ourselves genuinely blessed.

“Exit the Desert, Enter the Promised Land”

   In Matthew 3:1-12, John preached to those who by faith were about to enter into the Promised Land of the Reign of Heaven, a time foreshadowed by the entry into the promised land of Israel at the time of Joshua.
 
   We have been baptized into that same Rule and Reign prophesied by the ancient prophets. It is not consummated yet, but it is inaugurated. We have one foot in the Kingdom that is only going to get better!
