Lent 5

Crime shows have a fascination with finding bones subtly hidden in the wide open. There is one thing that is guaranteed when they find bones. The person is dead. No need to call for an EMT. Mouth to mouth won’t help.

Spiritually, we are like those bones found, long dead. There is no getting up and walking on our own accord. But the Holy Spirit through the Gospel of Jesus Christ, can give you spiritual mouth to mouth

St. Paul says in Romans 8, “But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness. If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.”

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