Death Becomes Him

Posted by Pastor Christopher Hull on

The Treasury today quotes Luther's sermons on the Gospel according to St. John saying, "This ministry (that is, the Word of God, Baptism, and Holy Communion) will endure and is not to be replaced by any other. But the incumbents of this ministry do not remain; they die." (treasury 197). Isn't...

To Be, or Not to Be

Posted by on

"To be, or not to be: that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, Or to  take arms against a sea of troubles, And by opposing end them?"  These words, from William Shakespeare's Hamlet, are...

Best Part of Waking up

Posted by Pastor Christopher Hull on

Luther spoke of prayer saying, "It is a good thing to let prayer be the first business of the morning and the last at night. Guard yourself carefully against those false, deluding ideas which tell you, 'Wait a little while. I will pray in an hour; first, I must attend to this or that.' Such...

Holy Little Deaths

Posted by Pastor Christopher Hull on

December 26th was the feast of St. Stephen, and yesterday was the feast of St. John. Both of these feast days seem fair to us. Stephen died proclaiming the Gospel. Stephen was a grown man that wasn't killed against his will, but rather kept preaching in the face of death. St. John, on the other...

Forgiveness

Posted by Pastor Christopher Hull on

Friends,   Just a quick little quote from Luther to get your work week started, not in the stress of your merit, but in the comfort of Jesus' grace and mercy. Concerning the 5th petition, "Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors," Luther says, "Thus this petition is really an...

Jesus the Lowly

Posted by Pastor Christopher Hull on

Today is the festival of the Lutheran Reformation. The central article upon which the church stands or falls, the article that got Luther into a whole mess of trouble, is the doctrine that we are justified by faith in Jesus Christ alone. We are saved and forgiven, not by what we do,  but...

Faith

Posted by Pastor Christopher Hull on

On Sunday, October 29th, we are beginning a walk through St. Paul's letter to the Saints in Rome. Luther makes the point that before you begin reading any book of the Bible, you have to know what the words of the Bible mean. For example, it is necessary to have a proper definition of the word...

God's Name is Holy

Posted by Pastor Christopher Hull on

Luther speaks of the 1st Petition of the Lord's Prayer saying, "Hallowed be Thy Name. What does this mean? God's Name is certainly holy in itself, but we pray in this petition that it may be kept holy among us also. How is God's Name kept holy? God's Name is kept holy when the Word of God is...

Why the Law? Hint HInt, it starts with a "J" and ends with "esus"

Posted by Pastor Christopher Hull on

In his work against Desiderius Erasmus' theology of free choice, "The Bondage of the will," Luther wrote concerning the law and its purpose asserting, "When sins are unrecognized, there is no room for a remedy and no hope of a cure, because man will not submit to the touch of a healer when they...
