Jesus promises to provide for his witnesses. When he calls his people to share the good news of forgiveness, he doesn’t send them out alone. He provides all they need as his children and witnesses.

Sermon on 1 Peter 5:1-4 preached at Grace Ev. Lutheran Church by Pastor Jim Huebner. 

Almighty God, You have built your church on the foundation of the apostles and prophets with Christ Jesus himself as the cornerstone. Continue to send your messengers to preserve your people in true peace, that, by the preaching of your Word, your Church may be kept free from all harm and danger; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
