The end of one church year comes with questions. Will this be the last year before our Lord returns in His glory? When will He come? What will it be like? The kingly reign of Christ which we know now by faith, we shall known face-to-face when He brings all things to their appointed conclusion and delivers the Kingdom to the Father. That is enough to sustain us. That is enough to guard our hearts in the surpassing peace of His promise.

Today, we come as God’s people to anticipate right here, in the real presence of Christ’s body and blood, the future that is already unfolding. This is the feast of victory for our God and the foretaste of the great and eternal feast to come. Until then, we await the new heaven and the new earth with hope, confidence, and joy.

As We Gather

In speaking of the final judgment in Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus says: “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.'” (Matthew 25:34)

On All Saints’ Day, we rejoice in the blessings now being experienced by those who have completed their earthly journeys in faith and who now enjoy the eternal presence of God in His heavenly kingdom. We remember the blessed saints of times long past and of the recent times as well. As we think of their blessed state, we also rejoice that we are among the blessed as we live out our daily lives as the baptized children of God in this time and place. By God’s grace, we are numbered with the saints! We, too, are the blessed ones!

As We Gather

“It’s still all about Jesus.” It was all about Jesus when the Lord God first promised a Saviour to Adam, Eve, and their descendants. It was all about Jesus with every foretelling of the coming of Christ by Old Testament prophets. It was all about Jesus at the manger, the cross, and the empty tomb. It was all about Jesus as the apostle Paul penned, “We hold that one is justified by faith apart from works of the law” (Romans 3:28). It was all about Jesus when Martin Luther posted his Ninety-Five Theses on October 31, 1517. It’s still all about Jesus today as we receive the Means of Grace—Word and Sacrament. It will be all about Jesus when He returns in glory on the Last Day. As we observe the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, we celebrate that it always has been, and always will be, all about Jesus!

As We Gather

Fifty years ago the landscape one-fourth of a mile west of Highway 157 in Bedford looks quite different. A farm-house stood on the five acres here, accompanied by century old oak trees and the dreams of those who would step forward in the name of Christ.

It was Charter Sunday, a day when all of the families who had joined together in this new mission called Concordia would sign her constitution and officially become charter members…the original founders of all that we are today.

Today you have the opportunity to celebrate the 50 years of ministry God has empowered us to do her. You also have the opportunity to do as they did, dream a little dream about all that God will do through us!

A Special Invitation

God has worked faith in our hearts to respond in joy to His gracious invitation. But our preoccupation with our personal agendas and the world’s allure can turn our hearts away. Jesus couches that problem in a parable. Worse, we might think that we can enter heaven, the eternal banquet, on our terms, supposing we need not be clothed in Christ’s righteousness alone. Yet God’s preoccupation is to keep sending out His special invitation to one and all. Our current circumstances mean nothing compared to the eternal banquet to which we are invited by the overflowing grace of God.

In case you missed it, here’s Pastor Mark’s sermon for the Sixteenth Sunday After Pentecost.

As We Gather

Our reward for being called to work in God’s kingdom  does not change based on how long we have been in our Lord’s service. After all, we are saved by grace through faith, not by works. Isaiah’s call for the wicked and unrighteous to return to the Lord shows God’s immense compassion for all people, no matter when they return to Him. God’s ways are not our ways, yet we continue to work in His kingdom until he calls us when we die. In today’s gospel message, Paul is struggling with a desire to depart and be with Christ and a desire to go on living and laboring for the Lord. Death and life content, but Paul knows life will win. He knows that Jesus will return, raise the dead, and dwell with them forever.
