Death Sets Us free
One of the perks of being dead is that you are freed from a lot of obligations. There are no more speeding tickets when you’re dead, nor do your credit card bills follow you when you’re dead. You are freed from the Law. In the same way, Christ has freed us from the Law by death. In baptism, we are united to his death and as dead people the Law no longer has a hold on us. The same life that Christ lives we also now live, not as a bride to the Law, but a bride of Christ.

You Deceived Me
It seems odd to say that true faithfulness to the Gospel can bring about a crisis of faith. The truth is not a popular thing. It’s much more pleasing to the ear to consume lies, but the Bible is clear; you are either a slave to sin or a slave to Christ. There is no middle ground. The world’s idea of freedom is slavery to yourself, but freedom in Christ frees you to live in goodness and truth and purity. It empowers you to live your life the way it was intended: for others.

Father's Day
Father is more than just a title, it’s a divine office. A father serves as the Lord’s instrument for giving his children 1st article blessings and much more. A father brings his children to the fount, to prayer, and to divine service even when it’s easier to push off to next week. More importantly, a father shows humility and compassion. Giving forgiveness and asking for it just as much. This is what a true man of God looks like. A father after the Father’s own heart.

The Beatific Vision
The true blessing of Baptism is that we are unified to the trinity through the Word attached to the Water. Though we were once strangers we now get to see God face to face as the prophet says, “I myself will see him with my own eyes. I and not another”. God baptizes our eyes so that we might see Christ in all things and be satisfied by his righteousness.

Filled With the Spirit
On Sinai God promised his presence and that he would provide for all their needs. Time and time again, God made good on his promise so the people of Israel celebrate God’s goodness with the Feast of Booths where they live in tents to remind themselves of their wandering in the desert and God providing. Jesus steps into this feast and proclaims the bold truth that whoever thirsts should come to their Lord and savior: Him. Jesus was there with the people in the desert and he continues to pour his spirit on his people, despite their rebellion and forgetfulness.

He Didn't Go Anywhere
Jesus’ ascension doesn’t provoke the same reaction we would expect. Instead of being sad that Jesus went away, the disciples leave with joy. There was a promise attached to Jesus’ visible presence leaving and that is the same promise from the beginning of the book. Just as God was present in the cloud on Mount Sinai, God would be with the disciples and continue to bless them through water and the word. Through common bread and cheap wine.

The Spirit of Truth
The unholy spirit is alive and well in the world today. It thrives on uncertainty and falsehood and seeks to distort and destroy the holy truth of the Gospel. So in these uncertain times, how do we know truth from the lies? The Holy Spirit intercedes in our anxiety and brings peace and sureness that is objectively founded in the Word of God which is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. This word brings hope and life eternal, even as the world passes away.

Mother's Day
Today we celebrate mothers and for good reason. Mothers are God’s chosen ambassadors of life to us. God has richly blessed us with mothers to teach us, feed us, guide us, pray for us, and bless us. Our ultimate mother, the Church, gives us life by showing us the father and our full family tree through which we receive life that does not fade.

Shepherd of Our Souls
In the early church, it is said that Christians devoted themselves to the apostle’s teaching, to breaking of bread, and to fellowship with one another. They had all things in common. Left to ourselves we naturally oppose devotion to these things, but the Holy Spirit is among us. The Shepherd of our Soul, Jesus Christ defends us daily and is interceding for us to the Father. He has called us and keeps us.

Finding Jesus
After Jesus is raised from the dead he chooses some very specific moments to reveal himself to his disciples. Specifically, he reveals himself at the dinner table; over bread and wine with family and friends. With simple food and words, Jesus announces his presence to his people with the gifts of salvation in tow.
Pr. Ron Hodel

He Knows Your Name
There can be mixed feelings about being called by name. Joy, hope, anticipation, fear, dread, shame. When the perfect God calls our name, guilt is inevitable because we are blind, dead, enemies of God. However, Christ takes our shame and pins them to the cross so that our father might call us by name as sons and daughters, beloved in Christ.
Pr. Ron Hodel

Into Thy Hands
Although these words are spoken at the moment of Jesus death, these words are appropriate for young and old, good times and bad, big and small. We hand it all over to our father as Jesus did on the cross. "Father into your hands I commit my spirit."
Pr. Ron Hodel
Palm Sunday
Luke 23:44-46
Thu 04/13/17
It Is Finished
It is all truly finished in Christ. The curses of creation find their end on the cross. Thorns crown the head of Christ, the woman is pained over her child, and the tree that brought death brings death once again. Yet in death, all these are conquered and are no more because death could not hold Jesus and neither do they hold us anymore. We are freed to live in the new creation now and to come.
Pr. Jeremy Rhode
Palm Sunday
John 19:30
Sun 04/09/17
I Want You
Tonight, we consider what the deepest desire of God in Christ is. In Christ, we see that God wants us to always know how much He loves us. He wants us to know this love tangibly in marriage and even more so in the cross. In Christ, we also know God desires for us to have life and life eternal. Ultimately, God simply wants you and to give you everything.
Pr. Jeremy Rhode

I Thirst
"I Thirst". Very ordinary words, yet profound at second glance. The one who IS living water that satisfies eternally is now thirsty. God has become truly and wholly man and is now like one of us who suffer all kinds of things including thirst. He shows us he is truly a God who is with us. He thirsts not just for water, but also for us; that we might be with him and live in love eternally.
Pr. Ron Hodel
Fifth Sunday in Lent
John 19:28
Sun 04/02/17
Why Jesus Really Cried
In the death of Lazarus, we get a glimpse of an incredibly sensitive and human moment with Jesus. We can sympathize with loss and grief, but we can never know the grief of God when he encounters unbelief. Even face to face with the resurrection and the life, we still doubt, but Jesus gives us ears to hear, hearts to receive, and a spirit that is made new by the blood of Christ.
Pr. Ron Hodel

Ezekiel 37:1-14
Romans 8:1-11
Wed 03/29/17
One Forsaken
Jesus experienced hell while he was nailed to the cross. He experienced separation from God, his father. He is the only person that lifted up a prayer to God which was not heard. He was rejected, beaten, and killed without mercy. This would have been us. This should have been us. However, the love of our God extends beyond all boundaries of human love. God the Father forsook his only Son so that we might not be eternally forsaken, but eternally family.
Pr. Jeremy Rhode
Fourth Sunday in Lent
Matthew 27:45-49
Sun 03/26/17
The Greatest Miracle
Who sinned? This man or his parents? Well, yes. His first parents, Adam and Eve, sinned. His true parents by birth are sinful and so is the blind man himself. All carry the guilt of sin, but the point of the blindness is not to show the Law, but the Gospel of God. Jesus shows the fullness of grace and love by working with the muck of the earth to create sight for those walking in spiritual darkness.

The Rock is Struck
Jesus gets at the heart of our sinful condition with the woman at the well. No matter what we pursue or strive after in this life we will always be restless and lacking until we find our rest and fullness in the fullness of Christ’s love. As the Samaritan had experienced shame, so too, Jesus bore our shame so that we might eternally share in the glory and honor of sonship and life with Christ. All our deficiency is made whole in the love of God.

From Above
Where do you look at Truth from? From below, where what there is, is only what can be seen, tested, and verified? If you look from this perspective you won’t be able to see miracles, the supernatural, or any of God’s works. This is the reason why Nicodemus doesn’t understand the words of Christ; he’s thinking with a perspective "from below". The kingdom of God, however, is something received "from above" rather than earned from below. God creates man anew with a right spirit from above so that with his spirit he might receive the gifts of God eternally into new life.

Tempted
Jesus is tempted three times in Matthew 4, but the temptation remains the same in all of them. The temptation is to place one’s trust in something other than Christ alone. So many of the things around us, money, power, skill, seem like worthy things to place faith in because we can sustain our own lives, no? Not in the least! Our very lives are a gift of God and the only reason we draw breath is by grace through faith alone. Christ is the only true foundation upon which we can stand. Even when the Devil seeks to take us, one simple word can fell him: Jesus.

Light For the Lost
We live in a society that glorifies the downward spiral into the darkness of sin and self-medication with all the vices of the new age, whether that’s technology, substance abuse, or self-centeredness. We are lost in the darkness of our own depravity. However, our good shepherd, the one who shone with glory at the transfiguration, has showed that he is the light. With Him, the sun and moon are redundant, because His truth, love, and glory shine brighter than all. They illumine our lives and bring new life in the midst of our darkness.

Salt and Light
Often we think about being salt and light as a calling to be something we are not, when the opposite is true. When we are called to be the light of the world, we are called to simply live as the people we are -- in Christ. We have the light of Christ within us. We are the way that God lights and salts the earth. Our identity in Christ is preserved by Christ in faithfulness to Him and it is not determined by the guilt that Satan wants to accuse us of. We can boldly go into the world sure of our identity and purpose.

Our Beatitudes & His
If we had our way, our version of the Beatitudes would look very different from the ones that Christ gives to us in the Sermon on the Mount. We value strength, not weakness; riches, not poverty. This is why Christ’s words convict us to the core because we in our very nature revile these words. Yet this is the call of our Savior: to become as children, dependent on their heavenly father for every good thing.

Darkness to Light
After the reign of wise King Solomon, the Israelites went from dark to light in a flash. They experienced division from within and exile and persecution from without. The Assyrians would soon be replaced by the Babylonians, the Greeks, and finally the Romans. Oppression and death and darkness. But it’s to these people that the prophet Isaiah spoke and they indeed would see a great light. The light of the world has come. In the midst of sin and death Christ has come to bring life eternal that darkness might reign no longer.

The Lamb of God
Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. This is the statement that resounds throughout all time and all Scripture. That even as the world was being steeped in sin it was being prepared to be soaked in the blood of the Lamb to cleanse it from all uncleanness. In the face of all our sin, condemnation, and doubt we can firmly hold on to the promise of the lamb, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.

The Untold Story
The Christmas story is a beautiful example of God’s love and grace, yet every Christmas, the story stops short. The story of the other children of Bethlehem remains untold because it is too painful to bear. Herod’s wickedness destroyed their lives for fear of losing his crown. Yet Christ didn’t come to save the flesh or overcome earthly kingdoms, instead He came to save our very souls. He came to claim dominion over his heavenly kingdom and bring all people to himself where death and sin could not go. His flesh was crucified for us so that death and sin would no longer have the final say. We too have a heavenly, saving, revelation just like Mary and Joseph. Jesus has come and death is no more.

Jesus Name: Means Life For You and Death For Him
The Gospel reading for today seems insignificant to our eyes because what we see is the continuation of Jewish tradition with yet another Jewish baby. Yet because this baby is the LORD himself, we see that even as a babe who couldn’t even walk, Jesus himself was shedding his blood and being circumcised for us so that our blood need not be shed and that we need not be circumcised to be a member of the family once again. The new creation comes to us and we are given all things because just as Jesus is named, we too have his name upon us. We are perfect, blameless, and a child of God, just as Christ himself.

One of The Family
Everyone has a certain special something that makes Christmas, Christmas. Whether it is a particular meal, lights, candles, decorations, or a family get-together, these things shape our season and give it meaning. What makes Christmas according to St. John is that the Word became flesh. He didn’t have to come to earth, he didn’t have to suffer, he didn’t have to die, but he did. He showed up in a place with no special meal, special bed, or any special adornment. He was clothed in human flesh with only animals to spend his birthday with. All this to remind us of what truly makes Christmas, Christmas. Christ incarnate. Not according to human expectation, but according to divine love and faithfulness.

Great Joy
The sad fact of life is that the closer we come to achieving our goals, the farther away from happiness we become. We toil and strive yet no joys truly last. We are in a perpetual state of discontentment. So much so, that, we lie to ourselves to cover up our unhappiness. Under the guise of being “fine” we live life numb to reality. The reality of our God, however, is that He came to save the people that weren’t fine: the lowly, the meek, the poor. On account of Christ, our lives are no longer an endless cycle of meaninglessness. Rather, we are gladly forgotten by the world because we are eternally remembered by our God. This is our great joy.

Everlasting Father
One of the problems that people face who only come to Church during the Christmas season is that they only ever see Christ as a babe in a manger. The reason this is an issue is because Jesus came to be much more than that. He came to be a father to us. That through water, blood, and the spirit we are claimed to be God’s own, through him. In Christ we are born as children to God so that we might have a father. Not a father or flesh and blood who will depart from us, but an everlasting father who will always be with us because he has conquered death and all things that we might be with him.
Pr. Ron Hodel

Sun 12/18/16
Does Obedience Matter
Because we know that nothing good comes from us, it is common to wonder if obedience really matters. God took care of it all right? Yes, but there is a deep misunderstanding still of what we are striving for as Christians. What we are striving for is not success, but rather faithfulness. We strive to live faithfully to who we are in, Christ, and respond with thankful and faithful hearts on account of His goodness towards us. So, does it matter? Yes! And indeed God will come to judge us on the Last Day, but not judge based on how successful we are, but our faithfulness. Even this, however, is not our own. It was given to us as a free gift by the work of Christ alone.

Are You Rich?
It is easy in our constant wealth and comfort to treat the things we want as the things that we need. We mix up our conception about what is truly necessary. This is the same with God’s prophets who come with a message, not of prosperity, but of repentance. In the same way, John in prison questioned Christ and had his doubts. It wasn’t what he expected would come with a messiah -- like glory and justice and vengeance. Instead of getting the messiah that he wanted, he preached the way for the one everyone needed. The blind see, the deaf hear, and the necessary good news is preached to the poor.

Our Backwards God
Our God doesn’t work in the ways that we expect him to work. Instead of things progressing and getting better at some future date, our God reverses time and space and reverses the death that the world and all its inhabitants have already experienced. He brings us back to Eden and makes a new heaven and a new earth by the new Adam. Our world stinks of death no matter how much we try to perfume it. But Christ bursts into history to reverse history that we might have life.

King of The Ungodly
What the Scriptures say about God saving the gentiles doesn’t catch our 21st century American ears off guard. Our confirmation bias says that it is obvious that God saves us gentiles as well. Yet when the Scriptures talk about gentiles they are the enemies of God, the ones caught in unrepentance, the ones actively denying God. God doesn’t justify the righteous, rather he justifies we gentiles, we ungodly people. Thus, it is in this God that we hope and have peace. In the root of Jesse we have salvation eternally.

Christmas by Faith Not by Sight
What our eyes would see the night of Jesus birth is a small child and a pair of exhausted parents. What our eyes would have us believe is that a man is handed over and killed by his friends. Our eyes would have us believe that sin still reigns victorious over us. But our God has proclaimed to us Good News. By faith, our ears hear the promises of God that Jesus has come into the world to save his people and indeed he has accomplished it. We are no longer slaves, but sons, and sin is no longer king. Rather, our king is yet sleeping quietly in Bethlehem.

Behold Your King Is Coming For You
In this first Sunday in Advent we are impatient with the season. We desire to have Christmas now. We desire to have a victorious king on a donkey now. We desire to have our future glory now. Yet Christ comes to us, not as we expect, but he comes to us as we need him. He comes not in glory and power, but in weakness in humility. He doesn’t come on our watch, but at the fullness of time. So we wait on the Lord in patient faith and love for our king who is surely coming.

Thanksgiving Food - What Is Your Diet?
The day after Thanksgiving is always the most lamentable. The belly is stuffed full of all sorts of food and drink and we step back to reconsider what our diet has been like and all sorts of ways we can work off the gut that is growing. This image is relatable to our lives as Christians. Very often we fill ourselves with all kinds of lamentable things and don’t stop to feast on the very words of God that we are given for our benefit. We cannot have both so, this Thanksgiving, what does your diet look like? The junk of media and gossip or the living words of God which bring renewed blessings every day?

Kindness and Severity
We are blessed to not have a God that is only severe and we are also blessed to have a God who is not only kind. Our God is a just God who severely punished the sin of the whole world and poured out his full wrath on all humanity. Our God is also the most perfect image of love because he sent his only Son to bear the full weight of his wrath in our behalf so that we might be declared righteous even while we were yet ungodly. True love and true severity.

The End is the New Beginning
It’s the end of the world as we know it. And Christians won’t be exempt from this destructive end time. Wars, chaos, persecution, and strife will thrive. However, we are not left to face this on our own. We have Christ on our side who rescues and defends us and is making everything new. This end will not be ours, but we will be made new as the world is being made new in its destruction. The temporal will pass away, and the eternal will reign forever. And we shall be with the Lord forever.

From Death's Pale Brow Forever
Death knows not limits on the earth. She consumes all and rules over all. Everything on earth will feel her touch. Even in the sixth hour of the day, death came for the man Jesus of Nazareth. She swallowed him up in the darkness of her tomb and laid him down for forever. But, where is death’s sting to our risen Lord and Savior who took on the form of death and conquered her as the Lord of Life. The death of our Savior has set us free from the touch of death forever and thus we celebrate this with all the Saints who too have conquered death.

The Gospel that Frees
With the Reformation in the forefront of our minds this Sunday we consider the core of why, 500 years ago, Dr. Luther clung so dearly to the Scriptures. The true reason for his dedication was on account of the freedom that the true and full Gospel brings. Under the Law and by our own works we will never have security or peace of mind, but if we embrace what Paul says without adding our own words into it then we arrive at a place of security, peace, and joy that none else can give us except Christ himself. It is truly only by his righteous suffering, death, and resurrection that we are declared holy and able to do good.

Where, then, Shall I Flee?
Johann Gerhard truly knew what it was to feel the affliction of the Law. The guilt it shows to us. The shame it brings upon us. This shame is often too uncomfortable to bear so we place it on others and behave like the Pharisee praying at the temple. Yet what we need is to confess with our hearts that God’s judgement is righteous and we are unclean. Our attitude should be such that we hide our faces from God in recognition of our humble state so that God can lift us up and wipe us clean as a father does a child. Christ cleanses us with his blood and now we can stand with robes washed clean in his blood, holy and innocent before him.

How Long Oh Lord? How Long?
Like this helpless widow we are in dire straits. We face injustice and have no intercessor, no help, and no hope. In the midst of this, Christ commands us to pray and never to lose heart for the true Gospel is that God hears our plea. Our cry comes before him and his son is now our intercessor against our enemy, the accuser. He is our help and he is the God of our salvation. On him we shall wait all the days of our life and he will remember his promises and deliver us in his lovingkindness.

Ruth to the Ruthless
Friendship cannot last if it is for the sake of friendship. Friendship needs a common object and for Ruth and Naomi that was faith in Yahweh to deliver them. The object of their faith was the promises that God had given them and so Ruth is bold to proclaim where you go, I will go; where you stay, I will stay; and your God will be my God. So too, we have one who went where we have gone, stayed where we have stayed, and on account of him, his Father is now our Father. Jesus Christ has been the truest friend to us and has delivered us from our sin and death. By having everything in common with us, we, now, can share in his death and new life to glory of God the father.

The Rocky Road of Faith
Life in view of the cross is a road rife with temptation. The temptation to boldly accept forgiveness of our sins, but withhold forgiveness from others. The temptation to put our faith in faith and question if we have enough to receive God’s gifts. Yet we are called to have Christ as the object of our faith and not ourselves. Or the temptation to think that we get what we deserve. Yet we don’t deserve forgiveness. We don’t deserve faith. And we don’t deserve a God who would graciously give us all these things, yet he does. Praise, honor, and glory be to him.

The Problem of Suffering
“So I hated life…” This is the lament of Solomon as he looks at the arbitrary nature of the world. There is no justice and no peace. Injustice is everywhere and evil flanks every course of life. So often we try to “solve” the problem of evil, but we can’t, so we fall short. But God doesn’t want us to solve evil, because that’s what he did. He came to suffer to end suffering so that we might not be slaves to suffering. Time will show that though we appear to have nothing, we have everything because we are in Christ.

The Kingdom is Yours Forever
What do we fear, love, and trust in the most? This is what we ought to ascribe to God. Yet the things of this world often take that pedestal. Instead of God, we love and trust in our wealth. In doing so, however, we become a slave to our false god. So praise be to the true God who has freed us from the slavery of sin and allows us to worship him and serve others with our possessions which we hold in the loose fist of faith.

Being Found
The Kingdom of Heaven seems like a strange place to our sinful eyes. Where the world tells us to avoid pain, yet Christ walks to the cross. Where the world tells us to indulge ourselves, Christ tells us to hate our family and our lives. The world tells us to find love, Christ tells us that Love has found us. The fleeting joy in the world leads to everlasting emptiness, yet the fleeting affliction in the world ends in everlasting Joy only found in Christ.

Death: The Cost of Discipleship
It is sad to see how many Christians truly think that they are sacrificing when they offer to God two hours of their week and 10% of their income after taxes. The reality is that God demands everything that we call our own, even our own life. Because no one wills to die, Christ died in behalf of us. He chose us even when we could not choose him.

Are You a Legalist?
As people adept in sinful ways, we have found yet another way to twist God’s good gifts and turn them into evil. We take the good Law of God and twist it to puff ourselves up and leave others in the dirt. This is the way of the world, yet the way of Christ is humility rather than ambition. He came to save, not the ones lifted up, but the ones cast down. So, if we boast, we boast only in our weakness and Christ’s goodness to us.

The Narrow Door
We live in a world that encourages us to be self-centered; to do things that please and serve us. Sometimes, in fact, we apply this to Jesus and create for ourselves our own personal Jesus that suits our needs and our wants and our personal desires. The true God calls us to his will and his desire, which is for us to enter the narrow door; to put ourselves last and walk in repentance, working out our salvation with fear and trembling.

Fire and Water That Saves
The words of Jesus don’t sound much like the Gospel we are used to hearing today. Christ claims to bring fire, water, and division, yet praise be to God that he does. Fire, that refines us from all impurities, Water, that drowns us and makes us alive again, and division, to bring us unified into the fold of Christ. This is the mighty work and purpose of Christ.

Life In Your Father's Hands
Everyone worries about something. Worry is a cancer that is inherent in our sinful flesh. Yet God calls us to not stress about anything. Easier said than done! For this reason, it is good that we are not alone in this fight. Christ our comfort has accomplished everything and we have everything provided for us by God. We are therefore called to a life of faith and not idolatrous anxiety. How great is our God who can grant lasting peace.

We strive so hard in this life to find security, but the only constant it seems is that everything under the sun changes. Money comes and goes, health rises and falls, yet we are not our own.

So often we try to find ways to please God like Martha did with the meal she prepared, but what is really necessary is for us to discover what God has prepared and done for us already.

Would You Be Set Free?
If you’re one of those people that says “I’ll believe in Jesus when pigs fly”, then today is your lucky day. The time for belief is now because pigs did fly! Yet, as Pastor Rhode explains, we are predisposed to sin and wage war on God. In Christ all of this changes and we can struggle with St. Paul to do the good our heart desires in faith. Because Christ died, “for you”, to take all that was yours and give you all that was His. So we follow the demon possessed man to return home and declare what God has done for us.

“It is what you deserve!” Too often people consider themselves more deserving than they actually are. Usually they deserve much less.

Jesus makes a habit of being the subject of scandal -- a holy man who eats with sinners and spends his days and nights with unclean people.

Mankind has a history of hiding from God ever since creation. Hiding our nakedness, hiding our shame, hiding our sin.

It is there we make our home and find true peace and rest.

He meets us in the midst of adversity and rescues us when we call out to him in repentance.

Jesus' Exodus
This sermon is about Jesus’ Transfiguration. Even when He is transfigured and glorified, Jesus surrounds Himself only with sinners. As He speaks with Moses and Elijah He speaks of “His departure” or “Exodus.” This gives a wonderful insight into the meaning of Jesus’ death and resurrection. Red Sea? Manna? Promised Land? Listen to what our Lord has done for us, and continues to do for us this very day. Now, and for all eternity, He surrounds Himself with sinners.

The prophet Isaiah receives a glorious vision of what the worship of heaven is like. The angels of heaven sing endlessly at the feet of God in reverence and awe, “Holy! Holy! Holy is the LORD God of hosts!” Like the prophet Isaiah we need to recognize that we are a people of unclean lips before our Holy Lord. Yet Christ takes bread from his altar and cleanses our lips. He takes wine from the altar and makes us holy like he is holy.

A Sermon on Spiritual Gifts
Concerning gifts do not be uninformed. There is often either too much emphasis or too little on this topic of St. Paul. It is often also a source of division and boasting within the Church. Yet we should always remember St. Paul’s words when he says that whatever the gift, it is from God, empowered by the spirit, and for the same purpose. It should not be a source of division, but encouragement and growth as Christ works through his people to carry out his mission.

The Baptism of Jesus for You
John the Baptizer came preaching a baptism of repentance. Many were baptized by him and the waters of the Jordan were rank with the sin of cleansed believers. It is for this reason that Christ himself came to be baptized. Not so that he could be cleansed, but so that he could take up our sin. We gave him everything that was ours and he gave us everything that was his. So we too also are holy, blameless, children of God, clothed in righteousness forever.

The Israelite Messiah came into the world to seek and save not only the lost in Israel, but the entire world. This is witnessed by the Magi: Persian, pagan astrologers from the East. The Word of God came to even these through the stars which lead them to the true light of the world. To Christ, they bear gold for their king, incense to their God, and myrrh for their dead and risen Lord. What good news this is to us.

He Comes In The Dark
John the Baptist had doubts about Jesus when he was in prison. He took them directly to Jesus. We must bring our doubts to Jesus just as John did. We can rejoice on this Pink Candle Advent Sunday in the midst of our own doubt and darkness because Jesus is coming soon.

You Brood of Vipers
John the Baptist preached an Advent message of repentance to a "brood of vipers (i.e. Israelites) so they could be baptized and prepare for the coming of Christ. He preaches this same Advent message to a "brood of sinners" (i.e. us) today so we can prepare ourselves for the celebration of our Savior's birth this Christmas. Advent is our time to focus on God's greatest gift to us, His Son.

The End is a New Beginning
Jesus teaches his disciples about the End Times: there will be false prophets, wars, and natural disasters. They are to remember that Jesus Christ is the only true Savior and they are to remain strong in the faith until the end as they begin to spread the Gospel. He who endures to the end will be saved. Jesus is preparing us to be alert. The end of this earth marks the beginning of the new creation.
