Proper 7C

The Lord seeks the lost. He invites “a rebellious people” and calls them to be His people and to dwell in peace with Him. For wherever Jesus Christ enters in, Satan is cast out. Those who were driven mad by the assaults and accusations of the devil, are set free by the Word of Christ.

Jesus drowns and destroys the sinfulness in us with the waters of Holy Baptism and thereby brings us out of death into life. No longer naked in our shame, living “among the tombs”, we are brought into the Lord's house, fully clothed by Christ.

For Jesus has come, in “the fullness of time” to fulfill the Law on our behalf and to redeem us from its every accusation. Therefore, having been justified by His grace through faith in His Gospel, “you are no longer a slave, but a son”

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