Lectionary Summaries


John 8:36 “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” Despite the false charges brought against him, Luther said that he was “the apostle of good works.” For only in being set free by the Gospel can we do good works. Jesus has set us free: His blood washes away our sins and now we stand before God as His beloved children, invited to live our lives to His glory for the good of His kingdom.

Life Message

There is no such thing in God’s economy as an ‘adopted child,’ only a child who was adopted into the family. ‘Adopted’ defines how you came into the household, but it doesn’t define you as some other sort of family member. In the book of Romans, Paul defines all Christians, both Jew and Gentile, as having received a common ‘Spirit of adoption’ (Romans 8:15; 9:4).” Dr. Russell D. Moore – A “Life Quote” from Lutherans For Life – www.lutheransforlife.org
