Weekly Devotional Thoughts

               Luke 9:59& 60, “Lord, first let me go and bury my father. But Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead; but as for you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God.” Another said, I will follow you, Lord; but let me say farewell to those at home. Jesus said to him, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.”

       These seem like very reasonable requests, to bury one’s father and to let loved ones know you will be traveling. Since Jesus denied their request, we have to ask the question, why?

       The first step in understanding these passages is understanding Christs’ motivation. Christ’s desire is for each of us to be with Him in heaven for all of eternity.

       If you notice, in the verses above, both individuals were concentrating on past events and allowing them to affect their future. In essence, both were saying God is not my first priority. He will be in the future but not right now. For these individuals the future never arrives. They procrastinate and allow themselves to be distracted. Jesus, knowing their hearts, points this out to both of them.

       Can we fall into the same trap? Certainly. It happens when we allow ourselves to be led astray by everyday events. It’s easy to skip church, studying the Bible or praying because of a 100 “good” reasons. Before long the little things have added up, causing our relationship with Jesus to becoming a very tenuous one at best. Everyday life should not become an obstacle to discipleship. We may have all the good intentions in the world about joining Jesus down the road but if we don’t commit ourselves to Him now, it may never happen.          

       Fix your sights on what lies ahead, not what rests in the past. Our future is with Christ.

A Message of Welcome From All Saints Lutheran Church

Hi! My name is Pastor Brian George and I want to extend a warm invitation to you to come join us here at All Saints Lutheran Church. Our Mission is to know, Serve, and Promote Jesus Christ through worship, fellowship, education and outreach. Here at All Saints Church we see ourselves as the center of spiritual growth where God is praised and his loving message is proclaimed through worship and music that is energizing, inspiring and uplifting. Worship and music inspires the worship participant to be blessed so that they become a blessing to others. At All Saints a warm and loving welcome is extended to all and everyone belongs. Our congregation is growing larger and smaller at the same time; meaning you can always find your place here in one of our smaller groupings. At All Saints we grow spiritually through daily devotions by being a part of a small group and by giving and sharing our blessings with others. At All Saints we discover our God-given gifts and are inspired to use them. Here at All Saints we are known on the community grapevine for being a congregation that reaches inward in ministry and reaches outward in mission. We are “The Church With Open Arms!"
