Weekly Devotional Thoughts
A Lutheran Chaplain was recently asked, who or what supports them. The chaplain answered, she received support from the community. She was asked to clarify the answer. She again replied, her support comes from the community she works with and the staff. She was then asked, doesn’t her support come from Jesus? The chaplain immediately replied of course, that was a given.
The question asked of the chaplain points out a problem that is common with a lot of Lutherans; we seem to be afraid to uplift Jesus as our main source for everything.
Instead we lift up the accessories to our success and squabble over side issues. Like the arrangement of the sanctuary, service times and the way communion is dispersed. Should the choir robe? Are we having too many fellowship activities or do we need more? How about the types of songs being sung or the liturgy being used? Do we not recognize these items are idols?
Has the church forgotten where its strength lies? Have we forgotten to proclaim and worship Jesus? To feed the hungry, shelter the homeless and to protect those whom others treat with injustice?
The New Testament doesn’t talk about any of the above items as being a requirement for salvation. An example. The Gospels don’t tell us how to physically receive communion. (Matthew 26:26-30, Mark 14:22-26, Luke 22:17-20) The Gospels emphasize what Christ is doing for us and making sure our hearts are in the right place when we receive it.
Matthew 15:18-20 “But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this defiles a person. For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander. These are what defile a person. But to eat with unwashed hands does not defile anyone.”
Worshiping traditions instead of Jesus has caused a lot of problems in our churches. Our lives and our salvation all emanate from Jesus. When we lose focus and argue about non-salvific items, we clutter our hearts and stray from our strength and our savior Jesus.
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!"
