Pentecost 4, Proper 5

An envelope comes in the mail. It looks very official with it’s gold seal on the outside. It seems almost too expensive for who you are. As you open the envelope you see an invitation to the grandest banquet given in your honor.

Someone must have made an error because it is being held because you had given of yourself sacrificially to benefit the world. But you never made this gift so how can a banquet be held in your honor?

“It will be counted to us who believe in him who raised from the dead Jesus our Lord, who was delivered up for our trespasses and raised for our justification.”

Jesus sacrifice for sins is counted as yours and you receive all of the benefits, even though you did nothing to deserve them. Christ did!

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