Hebrews 13:1-6
Luke 16:19-31
Amos 6:1-7
Real wealth is found in heavenly treasure. Earthly riches are not a reward for doing good, but rather an opportunity to do good. What seems to help in life fails in death; what seems to fail in life helps in death.

Ecclesiastes 5:10-20
1 Timothy 6:6-10, 17-19
Luke 16:1-13
Money is a master the devil often uses to tempt us. Jesus knows that serving money makes it impossible to serve God. The human heart is not big enough for both. So our Savior exposes the futility of serving money and also helps us see that the only one truly worth serving is our gracious, loving God.

2 Corinthians 2:5-11
Luke 15:1-10
Hosea 3:1-5
Mankind’s natural state is one of complete spiritual helplessness, a profound lostness. Wandering around physically lost can lead to winding up in bad places. But wandering around spiritually lost puts you in the worst place of all. Fortunately, Jesus does not leave us alone in our lostness. He relentlessly seeks us. He involves the rest of His Church in seeking the lost and in rejoicing over the found.

Deuteronomy 30:15-20
Luke 14:25-35
Philemon 1, 7-21
Following Jesus involves making tough decisions. We have to decide which is more important — our love for him and his Word, or our love for other things. So Jesus invites us to count the cost of following him. Assessing what we have apart from Jesus to what we have in him, the outcome of the calculations is obvious. No matter what we lose following Jesus, it pales in comparison to what we gain.

Proverbs 25:6,7
James 2:1-13
Luke 7:1-10
Jesus (who was absolutely focused on doing all it took to save us eternally) gives us the focus we need for our lives. Often he does that by turning our faulty thinking around completely (“the first last and the last first”). Today he shows us the humble will be exalted and the exalted will be humbled. True and saving faith is always humble, because it always looks to Jesus instead of self.

Isaiah 66:18-24
Hebrews 12:18-24
Luke 13:22-30
The paths of eternity are twofold: total joy in heaven or utter destruction in hell. Every human being will find himself in one or the other for all eternity. The way to heaven is through the “narrow door” of Jesus Christ, trusting in him alone for salvation and abandoning the works of the law as a way to earn eternal life.

Colossians 1:1-14
Luke 12:13-21
Ecclesiastes 1:1-2, 12-14; 2:18-26
Earthly wealth is meaningless without God. The meaning of life cannot be found in the abundance of earthly possessions but in the abundance of heavenly blessings. The believer recognizes that everything the world seeks and offers is meaningless. Rather, he sets his heart on the treasure found in the fullness of Christ Jesus, our Savior.

Genesis 15:1-6
Luke 12:22-34
Hebrews 11:1-3, 8-16
Our readings today expose the foolishness of worry and fear. Jesus warns against giving too little attention to heavenly treasure. Only he provides the antidote. He holds before our eyes the loving Father we have through faith. The same Father who tells us to seek the kingdom he is pleased to give us and he promises to take care of everything else as well.

Deuteronomy 30:9-14
Colossians 3:1-11
Luke 7:36-50
The journey from spiritual death to spiritual life begins with a recognition of guilt. We have sinned and fall short of fulfilling the Law of the Lord. Through contrition and repentance, God prepares the hearts to receive the gift of the Gospel. And the faith that results responds with “fruits” — our lives of faith and love.

1 Timothy 2:1-7
Luke 11:1-13
Genesis 18:20-32
In a certain sense, prayer is a natural impulse within the heart of creatures toward their Creator. What does not come naturally, however, is the focused prayer God wants for us. Our prayers are based on the unique and unearned relationship we have with God. Prayer is an opportunity to bring our will into conformity with his rather than the other way around.

2 Corinthians 11:21-30
Luke 9:51-62
1 Kings 19:13-18
The life of faith walks in step with the will of God and doesn’t follow the meandering ways of this world. Elijah’s response to the Lord’s call stands in contrast to the initially willing, but ultimately uncommitted “followers” of Jesus. Our Prayer of the Day says it well, “Pour into our hearts such love for you that, loving you above all things, we may obtain your promises…”

Galatians 3:23-29
Luke 9:18-24
Genesis 39:6-12, 16-23
Is faithfulness to Christ worth the trouble it brings? The life of faith is lived in a godless world and is met with persecution. With our Savior, we bear his cross daily. Our Lord, however, uses even these sufferings to refine us. Strengthened through his means of grace, we boldly confess his name and trust his perfect plan.

Ezekiel 2:9-3:11

Galatians 5:1, 13-15
We are so blessed to live in this great country. God has blessed our nation throughout its history, and has blessed us with its freedoms. But he gives the greatest freedom, the liberty that lasts forever, only through his Son.

Galatians 1:11-24
Luke 7:11-17
1 Kings 17:17-24
Last Sunday we heard that faith trusts God’s power completely. This Sunday’s lessons sound the depth of that faith. Can our faith trust completely, even when faced with death itself? Facing our own mortality, or that of our loved ones, brings out the weakest parts of our character. And so, today the Church prays: Be gracious to us in our weakness and give us strength.

1 Kings 8:22,23, 41-43
Luke 7:1-10
Galatians 1:1-10
Faith trusts in God’s power completely. No matter how impossible the problem, faith believes that God can and will help. Faith like that, given by the Holy Spirit, is not reserved exclusively for the direct descendants of Abraham. Rather, the gift of faith comes to every heart in the spiritual House of Israel.

Romans 5:1-5

The season of Easter draws to a close as Jesus prays his “high-priestly prayer.” Now as then, our ascended Savior prays for Spirit-inspired unity between the Father and his church. With much anticipation, we look for the coming of the Holy Spirit, as we confidently live a new life of faith in our ascended Lord.

The fact of Jesus’ resurrection is our assurance that we have eternal life. Our faith, based on our risen Savior, gives us what we need for this life and for the life to come. Through his Word we receive our faith and the strength it needs. In our risen Savior, we have the victory and want to live like people who know that.

Tonight the church remembers the crucifixion of our Lord. Our remembrance, while solemn, is not a message of gloom, but the awe-filled adoration of the Son of God as he offers up his life as the Lamb of God. Good Friday is part of the larger celebration of the mystery of salvation begun yesterday (Maundy Thursday) and culminating at the celebration of the Resurrection of our Lord (Easter). Worship on Good Friday is not a funeral service for Jesus, but an austere time of reflection, intercession, adoration of the Lamb of God, and quiet meditation. We gather to celebrate the sacrifice of the cross.

Maundy Thursday ushers the believer into the “Three Holy Days” of Christendom. But something more than history is celebrated today: The holy sacrament that extends to the believer the very body and blood of the Savior and declares reconciliation through this most personal communion with Jesus. In him, with him, through him, believers are reconciled to God and to one another.

Each of us battles with temptations every day, and the results are too obvious to mention. Christ was no stranger to temptation, either. He battled, yet was without sin… for us and for our eternal righteousness. This message of victory gives us confidence as we journey through the wilderness of sin in true repentance.

Sinful people’s response is to try to minimize their sin. Such self-righteous thoughts lead to eternal death. We need the Spirit to give us repentant hearts. As we begin the season of Lent, we remember that death will one day reduce us to ashes — and our hearts need to be reduced to ashes in repentance now.

Luke 6:27-38
Genesis 45:3-8, 15
Jesus asks us to befriend our enemies, to love those who hate us, and to repay evil with good. Logic would say that is a recipe for being walked all over. Yet, have we not seen this tactic work? When we were Christ’s enemies, he loved us to the point of death. He repays our daily evil with the daily goodness of his mercy. In doing so, he has won us for himself. Following the strategy Jesus lays out is not a capitulation to evil. It is a means of conquering it.

In Jesus’ kingdom, everything seems upside down. But when we see life from the perspective Jesus’ kingdom affords, we are seeing life as it really is.
