Do you believe that Christ is your Savior? Then you are counted amongst the elect. Today, you receive God's promise that you are counted amongst His chosen people. You are baptized! You are forgiven! Eat my body and drink My blood for forgiveness, life, and salvation! Go in peace! God loves you in Christ from all eternity. What could be more secure than that? Nothing. Nothing could be more sure for you than the fact that God chose you in Christ as His today and always. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/stjohnrandomlake/support

This is the message God has appointed me to proclaim to you today and to announce to the nations and kingdoms of this earth: “To root out and to pull down, To destroy and to throw down, To build and to plant” (Jer 1:10). So listen now, before it's too late. "Blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. In a year of drought, it has no worries and never fails to bear fruit” (Jer 17:7-8). --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/stjohnrandomlake/support

The true oil of gladness is Christ crucified for you. Jesus’ sacrificial death and triumphant resurrection are the content of your faith, the oil that keeps you with Jesus Christ. You rejoice when you hear the gift of the cross spoken in sweet words of Absolution. Christ’s light remains shining bright as He stokes the flame of His love in you by His gifts. And the richest feast you’ll have this week isn’t on Thursday but here at the Altar today. He gives His you Himself to strengthen and preserve you unto life everlasting, more oil for your lamps! --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/stjohnrandomlake/support

November 14, 2021 Jesus died for all but not all would receive Him. How does He know the difference? Their unbelief is manifest in the way they treat the brethren He sends. Quite concretely Jesus is catechizing you His church to be especially attentive to the care of those given to preach, teach, and administer His Word and gifts to you. This is not another abstract “love your neighbor” sermon. These “brothers” are those messengers/apostles given to preach to them the Word and deliver the gifts of Jesus. Thus, those who treat the disciples whom Jesus sends with contempt will receive the condemnation He promised previously. He had already said that those who fail to receive and care for His sent ones “apostles” who have a more severe judgment than Sodom and Gomorrah (c.f. Matthew 10). --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/stjohnrandomlake/support

While never complete, the Spirit continues that work even today, calling all sinners and every institution polluted by sin to repentance and faith in Jesus. We give thanks to God for Dr. Luther, for the work of the Reformers, and the freedom in Christ that was restored. We ask that He work this same repentance in us, that we and all Christians be called, gathered, enlightened, and sanctified for team Jesus, the holy Christian church. And we pray that the same Spirit keep us faithful to Jesus, speaking His words, confessing His doctrine, singing His song, and believing with His faith. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/stjohnrandomlake/support
