Serenity through the Storms of Life
The main difference between God and people is He is God and we are not! As obvious as this may sound, it is much harder to put into practice in our thinking and living. We like to think we are in control of what happens in our lives, but all it takes is getting tossed around in a storm to discover we are not—not even close. Jesus—with a word—calms a threatening storm on the Sea of Galilee. As suddenly as the storm arose, at the Lord’s command, a sudden peace prevailed. This is the same peace He speaks into our lives today through His Word and Sacraments. Through Jesus we can rest assured that no matter what happens, God is always good, and we are in His hands.
Grace: Active, Powerful, and Sufficient
As we follow Jesus on this pilgrimage toward the kingdom of God, we encounter many obstacles along the way. The temptations and attacks of the devil, the allure of and rejection by the world, as well as the comfort and tyranny of our own sinful nature, all seem to conspire together to muddle us up, beat us down, and draw us away from the Lord. Whether our particular weakness is physical, mental, emotional, vocational, spiritual, or some combination of these, we are in good company. Jesus himself promises to all who follow Him, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9).
Don’t Lose Heart! Believe! God Raised Jesus!
KFUO Radio, a station owned and operated by The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, recently celebrated its ninetieth anniversary. For ninety years, this station has continuously broadcast the Good News of Jesus Christ. In the early days of the station, it was suggested that its call letters, KFUO, stand for “Keep Forward, Upward, Onward.” This same slogan describes the apostle Paul’s message to Corinthians. In the face of division within the church of Corinth, Paul encourages them to “not lose heart.” Because of Jesus, our risen Savior, we know that the victory over sin, death, and the devil has been won. Faith in our living Lord gives us the strength to “Keep Forward, Upward, Onward!”
Rejoicing and Sharing Jesus' love with the community.
