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

September 23, 2018  
The sermon for Sunday, September 23, 2018, is based on Mark 7:31-37
 
Today's Focus: Unbelief mocks and says that if God did all things well and was the source of all good, then he shouldn't allow misery and need in the first place.  But especially in need and suffering God does all things well; that truth is the center of the Christian's quiet confidence.  It is the reason for our hope based on the promise of God and earned for us by the work of Christ and its eternal consequence for us.

Today's Focus: In our Scripture readings this morning, God will get to the heart of all human problems: the human heart!  We will see that our hearts are inclined to sin by nature, but that God has forgiven our sin in Jesus and sends His Holy Spirit, working through the Word, to bring new life to our hearts and new motives to our minds.  Come and see how God heals our hearts and creates new hearts within us!

September 9, 2018  
The sermon for Sunday, September 9, 2018, is based on John 6:60-69
 
Today's Focus: It is not only the outsider who turns aside from the Wisdom which is Christ.  Many who have heard the Word with us also go away when some part of it conflicts with their own thinking.  The need to submit one's own reason and will to the Word of God is not a onetime thing.  It is a sacrifice that needs to be renewed often, in every stage of life, as new threats come that oppose Wisdom and its expression in the Word.  May God empower you to believe that his Word and Wisdom are eternal life!

September 2, 2018  
The sermon for Sunday, September 2, 2018, is based on Proverbs 9:1-6
 
Today's Focus: The wisdom of God is not merely more clever than the wisdom of the philosopher or anyone else in this world.  It is altogether other and unique.  It is so powerful that it overcomes the death of unbelief and the arrogance of fallen reason.  Therefore, we gladly bring to God all of our own wisdom and our own opinions and lay them at the foot of the cross.  We gladly go to war against all of our own thoughts that contradict any part of his Word.  For all other bread for the soul perishes in its use, and those who eat it perish with it.  But the gospel provides a feast of truth and wisdom that gives life and salvation.

August 26, 2018  
The sermon for Sunday, August 26, 2018, is based on 1 Kings 19:3-8
 
Today's Focus: Jesus encourages us to drive away despair in our lives by listening to his life giving promises.  But when we pay more attention to our own feelings or reason than his promises, it is easy to become depressed and fall into despair.  If we only rely on what our limited eyes can see or limited minds can sense, we might miss the Bread of Life that will feed our souls forever.  Come and listen to his promises and feast on the Bread of Life, which drives despair away.

The sermon for Sunday, August 5, 2018, is based on Mark 6:30-34
 
Today's Focus: With a heart of compassion, Jesus looks at us and the world as sheep who need sheparding.  He longs to take us aside and address our anxiety and weariness with his Word.  And since he works through the Word alone to do such great things, he calls all his followers to hold on to every part of that Word, without adding to it or subtracting from it.  Come and be refreshed by the voice of your Good Shepard in the Word today!

Today's Focus: Share the Good News. With this Sunday the emphasis in the readings begins to shift.  During the past eight weeks, our worship emphasis has been on the creation of faith and its preservation in spite of suffering and persecution.  With this Sunday the second cycle of the Pentecost season begins and with it an emphasis on the response of those who hear the Word.  The reponse emphasized this Sunday is: those who have the Savior in his Word share him by sharing the Word.

July 21, 2018  
The sermon for Sunday, July 15, 2018, are three meditations based on Ezekiel 2:1-3:4, 2 Timothy 3:10-4:5, and Mark 6:1-6
 
Today's Focus: Faithful to the Word.  Jesus preserves our faith even in the face of persecution.  We have seen that the Christian suffers in the face of natural calamities and that he too must face death, both his own and that of those he loves.  In circumstances such as these Jesus remains faithful to his Word.  Now comes the suffering that is the result of our faithfulness to that Word, of translating faith into faithfulness.  It is a suffering that is promised and that is most painful when it comes from those who have heard that the Word with us.  Even in the face of such offense he preserves faith in the Word by the Word.
