We are all brought together in the church which is the body of Christ. We are strong and kept safe in the church because Christ is Lord of all. We share one Lord, one Faith, one Baptism, one God and Father of all.
God speaks no idle words. When He establishes a covenant, we can count on it. In Holy Baptism, God adopts us as His own, names us after Himself, and promises to be with us always to the end of the age. He is with us in the storms of life and even climbs into our boat.
Jesus looked up to Heaven before He fed the crowds. It makes perfect sense to us to look up and thank God for the food on our tables. Jesus will provide for every meal.
Jeremiah suffered a great deal in his life as a prophet. But, he never despaired. He kept waiting for the Lord’s help. He wrote that the Lord’s mercies are new every morning. Remember that when you see the sun rise!
“Behold I stand at the door and knock,” says Jesus. People who receive Him as their Savior walk through life in safety because Jesus watches them. Christians live without fear!
