THE ANNOUNCEMENTS

NEXT WEEK’S READINGS . . . Proverbs 4:10–23; Galatians 5:16–24; Luke 17:11–19.

ABOUT THIS WEEK’S READINGS . . . The Law cannot help us or give us life. Rather, it confines everyone under sin as wounded and naked before God (Gal. 3:15–22). So it is that two figures of the Law, the priest and the Levite, passed by the injured man on the side of the road (Luke 10:23–37). Only the promised Seed of Abraham can rescue us and make us righteous before God. Only the Samaritan, our Lord Jesus, had compassion. He came down to us in our lost and dying condition, pouring on the oil and wine of the Sacraments. He placed us on His own animal, bearing our sin and brokenness in His body on the cross to restore us. Jesus brought us to the inn, that is, the Church, and gave the innkeeper two denarii, that His double forgiveness might continue to be ministered to us. In this way the Lord, by whose Law we are torn and stricken, heals us and revives us by His Gospel and raises us up with Himself on the third day, that we may live in His sight (Hos. 6:1–6).

THOUGHTS ABOUT STEWARDSHIP . . . Luke 10:25 “And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, ‘Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?’” That’s just not a good question! Doing and inheriting just don’t go together: what can you do to inherit the English throne? Nothing. Inheriting is about birthright; doing is about merit. We receive eternal life by birthright in our Baptism into Christ. All of our doing in the Kingdom of God flows from this, from who we are by our new birth. It can never be the other way around.

THE ALTAR FLOWERS . . . are given by Craig & Carol Munson to the glory of God for blessings received.

COME TO BIBLE CLASS . . . as we begin, today, a new study on the book of Ephesians. The apostle Paul wrote Ephesians to the churches around Ephesus (Acts 19) to display the scope of God’s eternal plan for all humanity—for Jews and Gentiles alike. This is the mystery of God, hidden for ages but now made known in Jesus Christ. The first three chapters focus on what Christians should believe, unfolding the glorious riches of God’s grace in Christ. Dead sinners are made alive and gain eternal salvation “by grace … through faith” (2:8). The last three chapters explain the implications of God’s grace for the church, for individuals, and for families. This second section comes to a climax with a command to stand with the armor of God against the devil.

SECRETARY NOTICE . . . Connie will not be in the office Thursday, September 19 or October 1 all day. Her hours on October 9 will be 10:00 am–2:30 pm.

YOUTH GROUP EVENT . . . for September will be on Sunday, September 29, 7:00 pm–8:30 pm. We will be having a cookout and games at the church.

THANK YOU . . . to the Board of Education for a successful Rally Day.
