MAPQUEST DIRECTIONS
Sin is never just a moral lapse or isolated infraction of one of God's commandments; it's consequences lead ultimately to death. How many of us might have been spared the horrific aftermath of sin if only we had looked beyond the sin to its consequences.

(Notes from The Lutheran Study Bible - Book of Exodus)

____________________________________________________________________________________________________



CHRIST displayed the highest form of love (Greek word --> Agape) that one has for another.

Who else would willingly face the cross to pay for our sin?
Ephesians 3:19 - and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Ephesians 5:2 - And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

Romans 5: 6-11, 6 For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die 8 but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. 10 For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. 11 More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.

Upholding Marriage: God's Plan and Gift A statement by the Rev. Bart Day, executive director, Office of National Mission June 25,2013

Today the Supreme Court issued its ruling, striking down Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), allowing for federal benefits for legally married gay couples and potentially allowing for gay marriage in all of California with regard to proposition 8. Though the ruling is not a surprise, we are saddened for our nation, even as we call our fellow Christians to faithfulness and prayer.
As Christians, we believe and confess that God Himself instituted marriage as the life-long union of one man and one woman. Same-sex union are contrary to God's will, and gay marriage is, in the eyes of God, no marriage at all. We are called not to popularity but to truth. Therefore, we call on our fellow Christians to be faithful first to God's Word, knowing that another court is ultimately supreme.
Marriage is a fundamental building block of society, binding parents to their offspring. Every child benefits from the nurture of a mother and the leadership of a father. While having one mother is a blessing, having two mothers or two fathers is confusing for the child and detrimental to her well-being. The divorce culture has done great harm to the institution of marriage as well, and The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS) has and will continue to respond to that heartache with Christ's comfort while simultaneously working to restore a culture where marriage is upheld.
While this occasion reminds us that Scripture calls homosexuality sinful (see Lev. 18:22;20:13; Rom. 1:24-27), the Bible also says plainly that those who "hunger and thirst for righteousness," that is to say, those who repent and show genuine sorrow over their sin, are forgiven and loved by Christ.
And so as Christ,s church, we forgive and love too, following His lead with compassion and humility. We forgive and love because we are all sinners in need of His grace and mercy; because no matter the sin, we have all rebelled against our Creator and fallen prey to unbelief; because He has justified us by grace through faith, freely given and joyfully received (Rom. 3:23-24); because Christ has reconciled us to the father; because He has declared us righteous and we are.

Daily Devotions from Lutheran Hour Ministries

STEWARDSHIP CORNER
Matthew 11:28
"Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." Jesus has come to do the work so that we might have rest from burdens and labors we are not capable of bearing. He frees us from sin, death, and the demands of the Law. In that peace and rest of Jesus we find a new purpose - His light yoke which is no burden to bear, but a joy!
