Law and Gospel in Worship

Rev. George F. Borghardt

We often think worship is about what we offer to God and
indeed we do have something to offer Him: our sins. In
return, we receive the glorious gift of Jesus in Word, water,
Body and Blood, for which, declares Rev. Borghardt, we get
to respond to God with praise for the sake of our neighbor!

Just Shut Up and Die!

Rev. Donavon Riley

Death is a brutal reality. It is inescapable because we are
slaves to the power of sin. But, as Rev. Riley reassures us, we
are baptized children of God, and so we are raised daily in
the waters of our Baptism. We can tell our Old Adam where
to go because death is not the end.

You might have even memorized some of the dialogue

Catechism: The Third Commandment

Rev. William M. Cwirla

So how is the Sabbath made holy? It’s far more than
observing a day of rest from work, it’s about a person: Jesus
Christ, and the rest we find in Him and in His restful Word.
