Meditation

Welcome to our services today. If you would like to know more about our congregation, please speak with a pastor or elder.

COMFORT FOR THE BELIEVER THE greatest wonder ever on the earth is that the Son of God died the shameful death of the cross. It is astonishing, that the Father should say this to his only Son, who by nature is God: let them hang thee on the gallows. The love of the everlasting Father was immeasurably greater towards his only begotten Son than the love of Abraham towards Isaac; for the Father testifies from heaven: This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; yet he was cast away so lamentably, like a worm, a scorn of men, an outcast of the people. . At this the blind understanding of man stumbles, saying, is this the only begotten Son of the everlasting Father---how, then, deals he so unmercifully with him? He showed himself more kind to Caiaphas, Herod, and Pilate, than towards him only beloved Son. But to us true Christians. it is the greatest comfort; for we therein recognize that the merciful Lord God and Father so loved the poor condemned world, that he spared not his only begotten Son, but gave Him up for us all, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. They who are tormented with high spiritual temptations, which everyone is not able to endure, should have this example before their eyes, when they are in sorrow and heaviness of spirit, fearing Gods wrath, the day of judgment, and everlasting death, and such like fiery darts of the devil. Let them comfort themselves, that although they feel such intolerable sufferings, yet are they never more rejected of God, but are of him better beloved, seeing he makes them like unto; his only beloved Son , and let them believe, that as they suffer with him, so will he also deliver them out of their sufferings. For such as will live Godly in Christ Jesus must suffer persecution; yet one more than another, according to every ones strength or weakness in fai th: For God it true, who will not suffer us to be tempted above that we are able to bear. M. Luther
