In today’s changing and challenging world, Christians need to be vigilant and steadfast in their everyday living – keeping Christ at their center. St. Paul wishes to help by providing you just a few resources. Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any additions to these resources:

Like a Good Neighbor

To love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind is to reflect God’s mercy in responding to one’s neighbor. That mercy found its most profound expression in the “gospel that has come to you” – namely the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. That gospel mercy comes to us again this weekend: at the font, at the altar, and from the pulpit. It is very near to you.

A Trust Walk

God is the source of our nourishment. Our Lord’s invitation to “take and eat…take and drink” is a repeated one. In the Holy Eucharist, in the Word read and proclaimed, in the assembly of the people of God, the dominion of God has come near. Rejoice! Your name is written in heaven.

Excuses, Excuses

We have no good apart from God. That makes our Lord’s call to follow him an invitation to freedom. This is freedom to revel in the Spirit’s fruits; love, joy, peace, patience, and the like. This is the path of life.

Luke 8

This weekend’s texts paint startling pictures of the horrific – the demonic – nature of sin. The church’s repeated celebration of the Holy Communion counters that tragic reality in a continued showing forth of the death of Jesus “until he comes.” It is dramatic declaration of “how much God has done for you.”

The Holy Trinity

“O Lord our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!” This weekend we celebrate the name of God; holy blessed Trinity. There is no other day quite like this one in the church’s year. There is no other god like ours. Praise Father, Son, and Holy Spirit!

Pentecost

Pentecost is a day of promises fulfilled. The promised Spirit of God is poured out. The baptized have become “children of God” and “joint heirs with Christ.” By the power of the Spirit we have seen the face of the Father in his only begotten Son and been saved by him. Bless the Lord, O my soul.

Pray?!

It is possible to hear in Jesus’ high priestly prayer, a prayer he offered shortly before his death, the petitions of the ascended Lord for his own throughout history – to our day – and beyond. Jesus prays for us. In Holy Baptism we become believers in God, have our robes washed in the flood of Christ’s forgiveness, and receive the gift of life forever with all the saints.
