This Week's Article
Not too long ago, we moved to a new city. New places require finding one’s way around. We were blessed with the opportunity to choose from several LCMS congregations in close proximity to our new home. Once we had made our decision, the directions to get to church were straightforward – turn left from our house; proceed to Clayton Road; then turn left again; continue for one mile.
Straightforward also are the directions Christ provides for finding our eternal home: I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me (John 14:6). And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved (Acts 4:12). This is our GPS – God’s Plan for our Salvation. May God grant that we stay the course! And, may we share GPS with others!
Verse of the Week
For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known (1 Corinthians 13:12).
Last Week's Article
This article changes each week. Seasons bring changes to the landscape, and clothing designs seem to change before I’ve returned from shopping! I actually enjoy many aspects of change. I love the seasons, and am thoroughly entertained by continual transformations that take place in my grandchildren. I don’t appreciate, however, all changes. I age a little each day, and family and friends may move away. Children grow up and leave home and I mourn the loss of loved ones who have gone to heaven. This world is full of changes and I must accept this fact.
I can face all changes in this world because I know my Lord, Jesus Christ, never changes. He was, is, and always will be God.
He is your Lord and Savior also. What a gift we have to read the Bible, discover His promises, and learn that throughout history our Lord never changes!
