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 birth right; doing is about merit. We receive eternal life by birth right 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 Greg & Celeste Nau to the glory of God for the birthday of Celeste’s daughter, LaNéce.

PASTOR IS AWAY . . . on vacation August 23–September 2. If you have an emergency, you may contact him on his mobile phone (217) 460-2077, or contact one of the Elders.

THERE ARE STILL . . . openings to put flowers on the Altar. Please sign up on the bulletin board in the hallway by the sanctuary or call the church office. Flowers are $30.00 and can be special ordered. Flowers can be taken home after the Sunday’s service.

CAMP CILCA GOLF OUTING . . . Come and enjoy a relaxing round of golf with your friends in support of Camp CILCA, the CID’s Lutheran Camp. The format is a scramble. So organize your own team of four or just come and be put on a team. The cost is $50.00 and that covers your golf, cart, meal, and prizes. The outing is at The Rail (Springfield, Illinois) on Friday, September 25, 1:00 pm. Contact Pastor Daniel Smith for details or to register (pastordan@grics.net).
