Looking For Something of Worth?

“God never gives you more than you can handle.” These words are often used to try to comfort someone who is suffering. These words are often spoken as if this is what the Scriptures teach about suffering. However, these words are not found in the Scriptures. Nor is the idea that you never face more than you can handle. This not-so-helpful idea is loosely based on today’s Epistle, “all things work together for good,” and 1 Corinthians 10:13, that God “will not let you be tempted beyond your ability.” While it’s a well-intended comment, “God never gives you more than you can handle” is simply not true. Life does sometimes give us more than we can handle. If we could handle these things and more, then why would we even need God? Instead of protecting us from more than we can handle, God handles what we can’t handle. Joseph couldn’t handle it when his brothers sold him into slavery. But God handled it as He guided Joseph toward leadership in Egypt. What amazing news it is that no matter what might happen to you in this life, even when you can’t handle it at all and you feel like your life is crumbling to pieces, God can handle it!

Please join us for Sunday worship, July 30th, at 8:20 AM or 11:00 AM.  Pastor Cory Rajek's message is titled "Looking For Something of Worth?" based on Matthew 13:44-52.

The Kingdom of God is Like...

Sunday Morning Worship - 7/23/2017

Saturday, July 22, 2017

With the whole creation we groan together in birthing pains, waiting for the redemption of all things. Things are not how they were intended to be. This sad state of affairs is the result of people who are not God playing God. The devil is in on this, sowing weeds throughout the field of this world. But there is no God besides God the Holy Trinity, not in heaven above nor on earth below—not you, not me, not anyone. The real God has appointed that we and all humanity are saved through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our true home is the kingdom of God introduced by Jesus. Along our journey home, even when we do not know what to pray, our hope is sustained by the intercessions of God the Holy Spirit, whose groanings on our behalf are deeper than words can tell.

Please join us for Sunday worship, July 23rd, at 8:20 AM or 11:00 AM.  Pastor Joshua Baumann's message is titled "I'm But a Stranger Here" based on Matthew 13:24.

Knowing You Jesus, Knowing You -- There Is No Greater Thing

Sunday, July 9, 2017
Are you tired? Are you burdened? Do you feel weary? Jesus says to you: “Come to Me . . . and I will give you rest.” As we come to Jesus in faith, He takes our burdens upon Himself and gives us rest for our souls. Yoked to Christ in our Baptism, our standing in the presence of God the Father is guara....
