What does the church look like? You might be thinking it’s a little underwhelming in this world. Splintered and limping, the Christ’s church on earth doesn’t have the outward glory pictured in heaven. God’s glory is there! St. John’s Revelation helps us see it!
What a song! The picture in Revelation has everything except the tune. The majesty and the glory of our God on full display is a powerful vision of comfort. To God’s timeless view of the world, this is a done deal. To our limited view of life in time, we have a way to go. God won’t leave us. This Sunday we offer comfort using a view from heaven.
“A mighty fortress is our God!” That is the cry of the Reformation. What titanic changes took place a little over 500 years ago? Only a return to grace, Scripture, and faith. That is a recipe for peace no matter what trouble one might face in life. Join us this Sunday as we worship our God and celebrate the reformation.
Jesus ascended into heaven as our king. Do we always understand the kind of King he came to be? On the last day it will be clear. This Sunday we took a deeper look at the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!
The Christmas card that God paints for us in Revelation 12 is a little different than what we’re used to, but it’s worth a look. We see a woman, a dragon, and a child. We’ll see the dangers of our Old Evil Foe, and God’s plan to rescue us and his son from his clutches. Christmas was a daring move by our God to save the world that was lost in sin. That story – that picture – in God’s Christmas card is one you have to see and hear!
