Seeds of Faith

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service. There are many who put flags or flowers on the graves of fallen soldiers. Thanks be to God for those who die in service!

This past Sunday was another memorial day of sorts. It was the Feast of Pentecost, the day a gathering of believers were filled with the Holy Spirit enabled to declare the wonders of God in their own native languages.

What wonders of God were they declaring? That Jesus, the one who was put to death on the cross, rose from the dead three days later, and ascended into heaven to fill the world with His forgiveness.

Thanks be to God for the One who died in battle of your sin and rose victorious for you!

These Seeds of Faith have been sown by St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Bridgeport, Nebraska. I’m Pastor Allen Strawn
