Weekly Devotional Thoughts
When I heard about another senseless slaughter of innocent children, women, and men, such as the recent attack in Manchester at the Ariana Grande concert, I felt a profound sense of grief for the loss of life. There is also extreme sadness for the parents who were eagerly awaiting to hear how their children enjoyed the concert, but now instead, they will only hear silence.
In my pain and hurt, a part of me wants to join in the call to seek revenge. To wipe all those who possess this kind of ideology from the face of the earth. I ask Jesus to sanction retaliation. Even before I ask, I know the answer. It would be like asking a parent, who is seeing his two children involved in a lethal argument, which child are they ok with losing.
I hear Jesus telling me to pray for my enemies. Matthew 5:43-48 (NIV) “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect”.
Many times hate has challenged the world. In the past, the Roman Empire persecuted the early believers. These initial believers could never have conquered Rome militarily. Nevertheless, through prayer, love and personal testimonials Rome eventually made Christianity the official religion of the empire. The same can be done today.
Pray for a miracle. Pray for hearts that only know aggression and hate to become ones that are filled with grace, compassion, and love for all who inhabit the earth.
The battle against evil cannot be won entirely on the battlefield. To overcome evil, we must show those who want to propagate hate that Christ’s love is stronger than hate. We must persevere; the victory has already been won on the cross. We are just waiting for Christ to return to consummate it. Until then, continue to pray for our enemies and those who suffer.
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!"
