The message at St. John’s is simple: We preach Christ and Him crucified. In every Divine Service, Christ is with us, offering grace and forgiveness where He promises they’ll be: in His Word and in His Sacraments.
We welcome you to join us.Visitor Information
Notice who’s doing the humbling and exalting. Not the Pharisees. Not the man with dropsy. It’s Jesus. For it was upon the man with dropsy that Jesus had lavished His healing grace. It was upon the man with dropsy that Jesus had shown mercy. It was the man with dropsy whose sins Jesus forgave. And now the table’s entirely re-oriented. At the head of the table, in the seat of honor, Jesus, and next to Him, the man with dropsy, now healed, the sinner, now forgiven.
When Jesus speaks, Death is forced to give up its victims. Forced to release them. And just like the wind obeys His Word, and the waves, and the demons, and all the diseases, Death does as well, going home empty-handed.
My sermon’s done. The sermons that still need to preached aren’t. And they’re yours to preach. That’s your job: to comfort one another over our sister in Christ, who has fallen asleep. And to confess with your mouth, just as faithfully as our dear deaconess did among you, that Jesus is Lord, and that God raised Him from the dead. For by this you will be saved.
