This is ... Most Certainly True!
Jesus appears in glory as the Son of God.
Shortly before he began his journey to Jerusalem to suffer and die, Jesus took three of his disciples to a high mountain and showed them the divine reality that existed within his humble appearance: the Suffering Servant is truly the Son of God. We see this same sight through the eyes of faith as we prepare to follow the Savior to the cross during Lent.
Lord God, before the suffering and death of your one and only Son, you revealed his glory on the holy mountain. Grant that we who bear his cross on earth may behold by faith the light of his heavenly glory and so be changed into his likeness; through Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
A gift is only worthwhile if it is used and used in the proper way. God’s Word is an enormous gift to mankind, yet it doesn’t come without God’s instructions on how to use it! In this latest episode, Pastors Huebner and Hackmann discuss the Proper Use of the Bible. Four rules of biblical interpretation are explored and put into practice. The discussion ends with the need for and purpose of creeds and confessions. This discussion on Grace Abounds chapter 4 rounds out the introductory chapters on the Word of God!
Live a holy life.
How does God want us to live? How do we deﬁne “obedience” from God’s point of view? Jesus has the answer.
Lord God, in mercy receive the prayers of your people. Grant them the wisdom to know the things that please you and the grace and power always to accomplish them; through Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
