On this hill, the Lord surrounds His people

Loaves and Fishes by Genevieve Arthy

This week, this year the biblical theme for our VBS is On This Hill, God Surrounds His People. To develop this, it has been said in the Church that “just as man fell by eating, so he is restored by eating.” The themes of hunger and sustenance in our texts today work together to teach fallen man of his hunger and then offer to fallen man the better food of our Lord’s Gospel. …For more, click on the title above.

Jesus’ perfection is our perfection

Naomi & Ruth by Chana Helen Rosenberg

When Jesus preaches, you hear Perfection describing perfection. Today’s section of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount casts Jesus as the New Moses. That is, Moses, the Law-giver of the Old Testament, who delivered to Israel God’s covenant and God’s Law, delivered only a shadow of what would come. Under the Old Covenant, perfection was demanded of God’s people. Well, perfection in so far as the Law described perfection. Murder was murder, under the Law.

Hearing the Word of God’s forgiveness in His Service

Saint John the Baptist Bearing Witness by Annibale Carracci

Today’s sermon has been divided into four parts to remind us of God’s work in serving us His gifts in His Divine Service.

It is our hope that you will gain a greater understanding and feeling for the proclamation of Christ-crucified for the forgiveness of sins which He works through His “liturgy,” which means, “public services,” in the Church. …For more, click on the title above
