Weekly Devotional Thoughts
We go through our lives without really appreciating what Jesus’ crucifixion means for us personally. We confess we are responsible for His death because of our sins without really contemplating what this means. Maybe the personalization of the story might help.
Start by imagining a prosecuting attorney finds out about all of the “crimes” you committed throughout your life. He takes you to court where a judge finds you guilty on all charges. You’re guilty of theft for the times you took home office supplies, used the corporation’s copier for personal use and the days you really didn’t give your company a full eight hours of work. You’ve been convicted of perjury for the times you lied. For being a habitual criminal, sinner there is only one sentence that can be handed down, death.
As you are being handcuffed and led out of the courtroom a friend of yours asks to address the judge. He tells the judge he would consider it a personal favor if he could serve your sentence. Just as shocking, the judge agrees to let him do it. You are free!
With humanity’s first sin in the Garden of Eden, death became the only way to atone for sin. Christ willingly stepped forward and became that atonement when he died on the cross. It is more than a corporate act of atonement; it is a personal sacrifice in order to save each of us individually.
It’s hard to fully comprehend why Jesus did this for us because we focus on the sins and whether or not we deserve punishment. Sinning equals death. (Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord”.)
God with His great love for us instead focuses on the person’s wellbeing. Its safe to say God wants to save us from our death sentence. The Greek word for save is sṓzō (from sōs, "safe, rescued") – “properly, deliver out of danger and into safety; used principally of God rescuing believers from the penalty and power of sin – and into His provisions (safety)”.
What a powerful way to describe what Jesus did for us with His death. He personally delivers each of us from the death sentence of sin and into the safety of God’s arms.

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!"
