This week, the pastors and Kate discuss the wonderful hymn Water, Blood, and Spirit Crying, LSB 597. This beautiful hymn encapsulates the Christian’s life. The emphasis is only and always on Christ. The waters of Baptism, the Blood of the Sacrament, the Holy Spirit Himself all point to Jesus, our life. The sinner dies in baptism to be raised to new life in Christ, the Body and Blood of our Savior gives us life anew every Sunday and keeps us steadfast in the faith all our lives, and the Holy Spirit dwells in our hearts, forever keeping us one with Christ. This hymn never mentions our own poor works or desires, but properly demonstrates that the Christian life is a life won by Christ and given by the Holy Spirit.
