What Are We Known For?
As the Lord speaks to us in His Word, He calls the righteous to live by faith and always gives reason why His people can do so through His continual presence, power, and providence. The Readings today urge us, in various ways, to live by faith in our confession and conviction. Moved by the Holy Spirit out of gratefulness for the salvation earned for us by Christ Jesus, we give God our willing obedience, dedicated service, and the glory due His name as we in confession and conviction live by faith in and through Him.

    Jesus tells a story about a vineyard and some wicked tenant farmers who were not willing to share the fruit of the vineyard. As Christians, we have been blessed by God to bear fruit for the kingdom!

    God’s Good Pleasure
    We often wonder where is God's justice when the innocent suffer or His mercy when tragedy strikes. But the Lord insists that He has no pleasure in the death of anyone. God's good will is that all would be saved and come to the knowledge of His Son!

    “Generous Beyond Belief”
    A part of us expects justice from God. We think that fairness ought to reign- that each of us should get what we deserve. But this is a dead end. God does not give us what we deserve but acts with mercy and grace beyond belief!

    Who is the Greatest in the Kingdom?
    Forgiveness is filled with many questions. How often must I forgive? Is there a limit to forgiveness? The parable of the unmerciful servant teaches us that we should forgive as we have been forgiven.

    Building Relationships
    Relationships are important. God did not create us to be alone but in relationships with others. Sin damages our relationships, with God and with others. Through His death and resurrection, Jesus forgives our sin and restores our relationship with God. The power of the cross also enables us to heal broken relationships with others.

    Overcoming Evil with Good
    We live in a world marred by sin, death, and evil. Although we confront it every day, this very present evil will not overcome us. God's desire is for us to be saved and delivered by His Son, Jesus, so that we are enabled to love, to live, and to overcome evil with good.

    Built on the Rock
    Peter confessed that Jesus is "the Messiah, the Son of the Living God." Jesus promised to build His church on this confession. This confession is central to our faith as individual Christians and vital in our worship as the gathered people of God. Today we consider what Jesus has called the church to do.

    You Have Great Faith
    Jesus brought healing to the daughter of a Canaanite woman, a person seen as inferior by the Jews of that day. The love of Jesus broke down barriers and reached across divides. Today we are reminded that the love and mercy of God extends to ALL people."T160_20200816".
