The sermon for Sunday, April 22, 2018, is based on John 10:11-18
 
Today's Focus: Good Shepherd Sunday.  Author George Smith says:  "In such a landscape as Judea, where a day's pasture is thinly scattered over an unfenced tract of country, covered with delusive paths, frequented by wild beasts, and rolling off into the desert, the shepherd and his character are indispensable.  On some high moor, across which at night the hyenas howl, when you meet him, sleepless, far sighted, weather-beaten, armed, leaning on his staff, and looking out over his scattered sheep, every one of them on his heart, you understand why the shepherd of Judea sprang to the front in his people's history; why they gave his name to their kings; why Christ took him as the type of self-sacrifice."
 
On Good Shepherd Sunday we see the selfless love of our Good Shepherd, our Savior Jessus.  He is risen indeed!

April 15, 2018  
The sermon for Sunday, April 15, 2018, is based on Luke 24:36-49
 
Today's Focus: Hope Restored.  The certain hope of eternal life with God is founded on the sacrificial death and victorious resurrection of Christ.  God had promised this ancient hope in the Garden at the dawn of time.  God had carried this ancient hope in his Word through the ages.  How did the disciples fail to anticipate the resurrection?  How did the teachers and people of Israel fail to see the Messiah God had promised and delivered?  They let their wants and cultural expectations color their view of Scripture, and hope was lost.  But God restored this ancient hope by raising Jesus from the dead and pointing his people back to his promises.

Today's Focus: Peace Drives Away Doubt.  In the face of doubt, Jesus gives us proof and peace.  To the doubting disciples, he gave certain proof that led to certain peace.  Through his Word and sacraments, Jesus gives the same proof to all people od all time.  "Peace be with you," is our Lord's message to us today.  He is risen!  He is reisen indeed!

April 1, 2018  
The sermon for Sunday, April 1, 2018, is based on 1 Corinthians 15:19-26
 
Today's Focus: Easter Sunday.  O how dark things looked for Jesus and His followers on Good Friday, as Jesus hung on the cross and died.  How dark must have been the mood of the disciples all through Saturday. But then came Sunday and everything changed.  Everything! For Jesus rose! Now the darkness of gloom and despair was replaced with the "light" of victory and joy!  As Easter changed everything for them, so it changes everything for us.  Jesus has risen to free us from the clutches of sin, death and the devil-a freedom that will never be taken away.  Christ is risen!  He is reisen indeed!

March 25, 2018  
The sermon for Sunday, March 25, 2018, is based on Mark 11:1-10
 
Today's Focus: Palm Sunday.  From his birth to his death, Jesus demonstrates remarkable humility.  He is King of kings.  And yet when born into our world, he did not have a golden crib, but only a manger.  When he rides into the royal city of Jerusalem as a king, it is not on a stallion, but a little donkey foal.  And when he, as Lord of Lord, mounts his position of authority, it is not on a throne, but a cross.  Why would one so great be so unspeakably humble?  And what is there for us to learn in his humility?  Come and listen to His Word today!

March 18, 2018  
The sermon for Sunday, March 18, 2018, is based on Hebrews 10:19-25
 
Today's Focus: Jesus Our Great High Priest Makes Us Priests. Through the blood of Jesus, we are forgiven and cleansed.  We can approach the throne of God in prayer with confidence that we will be heard.  And now, forgiven and called by Christ, we can go out into the world and share his message with others as well as encourage one another with his Word.  In this sense, we are all called to be priests of our Great High Priest.  Pray, praise and worship Him!

March 11, 2018  
The sermon for Sunday, March 11, 2018, is based on Hebrews 13:10-16
 
Today's Focus:  Jesus our Great High Priest Serves at a Great Altar. The altar of sacrifice at the temple in Jerusalem was a sight to behold.  At 7 1/2 feet long on each side and 4 1/2 feet high, it would have made for an impressive sight as flames and fragrance lifted high above it.  However, it was not at this impressive altar but at another altar-rough and ugly looking, that God won forgiveness for us.  On the "altar" of the cross, Jesus was lifted up and gave up his life so that we might have life forever.  Rejoice and worship him!

March 4, 2018  
The sermon for Sunday, March 4, 2018, is based on Hebrews 10:5-12
 
Today's Focus:  Jesus is our self-sacrificing High Priest. In the Old Testament, the High Priest would offer a sacrifice, but he was not the sacrifice himself.  Not so with Jesus, our Great High Priest.  The Bible describes him as "the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world."  Likw an innocent lamb, he gave his life as the sacrifice for our sins on the cross.  And by that one sacrifice, we are forever forgiven!  Come worship the Lamb of God!

February 25, 2018  
The sermon for Sunday, February 25, 2018, is based on 1 Corinthians 1:22-25
 
Today's Focus:  We preach Christ crucified.  In the season of Lent, we repent of our sins, return to our Savior, and become renewed by the most important message we could ever hear: Jesus was crucified to fully pay for all our sins, and has risen again to give us salvation.  The love of Jesus is the focal point of all that we preach and teach.  Pastor Michael Otterstatter, Vice President of Mission Advancement at Martin Luther College, New Ulm, Minnesota, will share with us this life changing message: Christ crucified and Christ risen...for us!

February 18, 2018  
The sermon for Sunday, February 18, 2018, is based on Hebrews 4:14-16
 
Today's Focus:  Jesus is our compassionate High Priest. The high priests of Isreal were human beings, just like the people they served: as sinners, they were able to sympathize with those who sinned.  How could someone as great as God's Son possibly relate to sinners?  That was a question the first readers of Hebrews would have had on their minds.  We will see that although Jesus is perfect in all he does, he also perfectly saves us and sympathizes with us.  And because of that, we are seen perfect in Him!
