Trinity Lutheran Church (WELS, Woodbridge, VA) Weekly sermons from Trinity Lutheran Church, Woodbridge, VA

August 20, 2017  
The sermon for Sunday, August 20, 2017 is based on Matthew 13:44-52
 
Today's Focus: The Christian Answers Doubt with Faith.  Doubt is the unfortunate companion of faith.  Whenever faith clings to the promises of God, doubt is always right there lingering in the back of our mind, constantly asking the serpent's Garden question, "Did God really say?"  Today's lessons show us believers who had faith in God and his abilities to save them, but yet doubted when his plans or purpose failed to match theirs.  In each case, it is adversity that fights against faith and allows its unfortunate companion to rear its ugly head.  And in each case, the true answer to doubt is not found in the great miracle that removes adversity, but in the small voice of our Savior God whispering in his Word.  Today we hear our Savior God ask us, "Why did you doubt?", as we see that the Christian answers doubt with faith.

The sermon for Sunday, August 06, 2017 is based on Matthew 13:44-52
 
Today's Focus: The Christian Seeks Spiritual Wealth.  This Sunday's readings (1 Kings 3:5-12, 1 Timothy 6:17-21, and Matthew 13:44-52) are centered around the very ancient Prayer of the Day.  For nearly 1,600 years God's people on this day have prayed that God might give them true spiritual wealth.  "Teach us always to ask according to your will that we may never fail to obtain the blessings you have promised."  What a magnificent prayer for the materialist world in which we live!  Our readings today show people who have come into great wealth, but yet this earthly wealth only serves to illustrate where true treasure lies.  Today we see that true, spiritual wealth can only be found in God and his eternal blessings for us in Christ.

Today's Focus: The Christian Lives as Wheat Among Weeds.  Christians, pictured this morning in a parable by Jesus as "wheat" live among 'weeds", or unbelievers as they wait for the harvest - the Day when Jesus will return to judge the world.  We ask for the spirit to live like wheat - to think and to do what is right - even while we live in this sinful world.  Living with an eye on the coming harvest gives us encouragement, comfort, and hope.

July 2, 2017  
The sermon for Sunday, July 02, 2017 is Luke 9:18-26
 
Today's Focus: The Christian loves God above all things.  Famous Christian author C.S. Lewis said, "Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance.  The only thing it cannot be is moderately important."  This morning Jesus asserts the all-important nature of faith, and the all-consuming nature of discipleship.  Jesus calls us to love him above all - more than family or friends, more than personal safety or even life itself.  He explains that such total commitment to himself will not bring peace to our lives, but constant conflict with the sinful world around us.  However, he reminds us of his undying love for us and points us to our home in heaven, kept safe by the One who sent him.

June 25, 2017  
The sermon for Sunday, June 25, 2017 is actually three seromettes based on Exodus 3:1-15, 1 Timothy 1:12-17, and Matthew 9:9-13
 
Today's Focus: The Holy Ministry is filled with people who God called out of his boundless mercy.  Nothing else could explain the choices for ministers that God made!  He calls such sinful and weak people to fill this office.  Only mercy can explain those he chose in this Sunday's Scripture readings: a despised tax collector, an exiled killer, a persecutor of Christians.  How poignant these readingd are, when we remeber that each reading was penned by the minister called into service by God's boundless mercy!

June 18, 2017  
The sermon for Sunday, June 18, 2017. The sermon text is based on Matthew 7:15-29
 
Today's Focus: The Holy Ministry stands on the rock-solid truth of God's Word.  Not all who call themselves ministers do that, so watch out for false teachers.  Many will come with wise sounding words and pious promises, but they are not what they seem.  The Church's only defense is to stand firmly on the rock-solid truth of God's Word.  In the season of Pentecost, we explore deeply the teachings of Christ and the application of faith in the life of the Christian.  How fitting that this initial Sunday lays the foundation for that teaching and life: the inspired Word of God.

June 11, 2017  
The sermon for Sunday, June 11, 2017. The sermon text is based on 2 Corinthians 13:11-14
 
Today's Focus: The Holy Trinity.  In the church year, this Sunday is known as "Trinity Sunday".  It is a rather appropriate Sunday for a congregationwhich is named Trinity Lutheran Church!  But what does the term  "Trinity" or "Triune" really mean?  And how does the truth of the Trinity effect our lives?  God will give us answers to those questions today.  We will see that the Triune God is greater than we can comprehend in terms of both His power and His love.  Come and celebrate the truths of the Trinity!
