October 4 - 2020 (Pastor Kurbis) Matthew 22:1-14 - "The Invitation Is Yours" Pastor Caleb Kurbis
Living Savior Podcast
If you believe in anything of substance, your faith will be challenged by other denominations, religions, and cultural norms. The heart of Christianity has always been attacked from all sides. But our faith rests upon the only one who outlasts every power struggle, no matter what. Throughout the month of October we will see that the very things that set Christianity apart are what make it stand alone. This past Sunday's Focus:Are you enjoying the sumptuous banquet provided by your heavenly King, feasting on blessings that will delight you forever? Today Jesus demonstrates that what we have through faith in him is entirely God’s doing, so that each of us can praise God along with Martin Luther: “The Holy Spirit has called me by the gospel, enlightened me with gifts, sanctified and kept me in the one true faith!”
Everyone needs hope. Especially when our lives are battered by tragedy and catastrophe, it means everything to have that optimistic outlook that things will get better. Yet will it truly get better? Easter certainly says so. The bodily resurrection of the One who was crucified for us substantiates our salvation, fortifies our forgiveness, and endorses our eternity with God. Every Sunday throughout the season of Easter we will grow in our understanding of and appreciation for this Easter blessing through the lens of the Apostle Peter's first epistle. Join us as we explore the gifts that the risen Christ brings! The hope of Easter remains!
