Proper 11

Have you ever entered a room, maybe a convention or a party and took a deep breath knowing that you were a stranger and so were they. Strangers in a strange land.

Now contrast that with walking into a room full of your family and friends.

Quite a different feeling. A different reality.

God’s Word tells us that when Jesus went to the cross to die and take away our sin, we are now no longer strangers in a strange land. Instead we are members of the household of God.

God’s household is a household of peace, comfort and joy. Its foundation is that of the apostles and prophets with Christ Jesus, as the cornerstone. It is a household of certainty, of knowledge in the truth, and an assurance of salvation.

Christ’s church, your household here on earth.

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