Greetings to all,
The time of Lent, to many, is a lost treasure of the Churches rich history. It is a time where we return to the Lord, to ponder some of the questions like, "why Lord did you do this?" I hope to help answer some of those questions starting Ash Wednesday and continuing through to Easter.
To some, Lent is about giving up something; but I say lovingly, "rubbish". It is about returning in faith, to seeking deep inside yourself, to bringing your heart back to the Lord, seeking His forgiveness.
Sure, if fasting, giving up some bad thing, etc. will help you, "then do it". Along with prayer and meditation on the Lord's Word, then that is a good thing.
Remember, in Lent, the Lord wants you! After all, He came in the flesh, hung on a cross, died for you! Rose again so those that have faith will enjoy the riches of heaven.
And the gift is free, come and hear, come listen; Faith and I are ready to preach the Word, administer the Sacraments to those ready; and I pray the Holy Spirit opens the hearts of those that are hard hearted.
Come, return to Christ this Lenten season.
I am so glad you are spending a few moments checking out Faith Lutheran. We are a small Church, and friendly to all visitors. We are a confessional Church, we follow the Bible and the Lutheran Confessions that speak of what we believe. We are a Church that worships in a high liturgical style; we come into God's presence to be provided Word and Sacrament. Yes, so many of late think the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod is backward on many issues. So sad, I say "this is what God says in His Word." God's Word does not change. Bottom line. The Bible. Is it God's Word? Or is it words about God? It does matter.
God speaks in the liturgy, He acts in the Absolution for sinners, He feeds with His Body and Blood. He guides us and brings us to Salvation by His saving Word. Join us.
