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

August 21, 2016  

The sermon for the fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost, August 21, 2016.  The sermon text is based on Luke 13:22-30.  The theme this week is: "The Door to Heaven is Narrow".Today's Focus:  The door to heaven is narrow. The way to heaven is narrow. Mere outward attachment to the family of God is no sufficient - only through faith in Christ can we enter heaven. The door is narrow and Christ commands us to make every effort to enter it. Although the door is narrow, it is open to all, and believers will come from all nations to behold the glory of the Lord.Sermon given by Mr Luke Hendricks.

August 16, 2016  

The sermon for the thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost, August 14, 2016.  The sermon text is based on Philippians 4:4-7, 10-13.  The theme this week is: "Followers of Christ Find Strength in Jesus".

Today's Focus:  Philippians 4:13 is a favorite and yet often misunderstood verse from Christians.  Paul's words in Philippians 4:13 are more about the endurance of every circumstance, rather than enjoyment of every circumstance - more about contentment in everything, rather than the capability to do everything.  Paul said, "I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation."  The secret of enduring every situation with contentment is realizing our strength and our joy come entirely apart from ourselves.  Our strength is in him who keeps strengthening us - Jesus!

The sermon for the eighth Sunday after Pentecost, July 10, 2016.  The sermon text is based on Luke 10:25-37.  The theme this week is: Followers of Christ love their neighbor.

Today's Focus: The believer loves his or her neighbor.  We have every reason to love them.  We know what we were when God found us; we know the love and mercy he poured out on us.  Christ, the compassion of God, has treated our spiritual wounds and paid for our healing with his own blood.  As we have known his goodness, let us do good to all.  The word is planted in our hearts, and now we ask the Holy Spirit to bring forth such fruits of faith as loving our neighbor for the sake of Christ.

June 26, 2016  

The sermon for the Sixth Sunday after Pentecost, June 26, 2016.  The sermon text is based on 2 Corinthians 11:21b-30.  The theme this week is: Followers of Christ understand the call for total commitment.

Today's Focus: Following Christ calls for total commitment.  The life of faith walks in lock step with the will of God and does not follow the meandering ways of this world.  Elisha's response to the Lord's call stands in contrast to the initially willing, but ultimately uncommitted "followers" of Jesus.

June 19, 2016  
The sermon for the Fifth Sunday after Pentecost, June 19, 2016. The sermon text is based on Luke 9:18-24. The theme this week is: Followers of Christ...Expect Persecution .
 
Today's Focus: Is faithfulness to Christ worth the trouble it brings? The life of faith is lived in a godless world, and it is therefore certain to be met with persecution. Like our Suffering Savior, we too bear his cross in our daily interactions with the unholy trio of sin, death and the devil. The Lord, however, uses these persecutions suffered for the sake of the Gospel to refine us into the pure, precious metal of his children. Strengthened through the means of grace, we boldly confess Jesus as the Christ in the face of any persecution or trouble. The Church prays that God in his mercy would direct the affairs of this world so that the Church might have peace, but at the same time we prepare ourselves for persecution.

Sermon given by Mr Timothy Patoka. Mr Patoka is a recent graduate of Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary and will be ordained in July 2016.
