Easter 5

It really hurts when you stub your toe. You would think that it would be easy to know where your own feet are going. But somehow, no matter how cautious you are, you will stub your toe. For those of us who are exceptionally clumsy, it might be quite frequent, and you may even fall.

God tells us in 1 Peter 2 that a stone of stumbling exists.

"The stone that the builders rejected

has become the cornerstone,"


"A stone of stumbling,

and a rock of offense."

That stone of stumbling is Jesus Christ. Many stumble over Him because by Jesus’ death and resurrection, salvation is just plain easy. They stumble because they wish to add something to Jesus life giving Word and promise of forgiveness.

No need to stumble. Salvation in Jesus is that simple.

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