Lectionary Summaries


1 Peter 1:18-19 “You were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot.” We have been ransomed – bought back from the slavery into which we were born. We do not belong to ourselves, or to the devil, or to the world: we belong to Jesus. Therefore, we live our lives not in accordance with our own wisdom, but in line with God’s Word.

Let’s help others look forward to the future with great hope and trust in the Lord of life.” Sherry Ellis, executive director of The Lighthouse Center of Hope, Iowa Falls, Iowa ( – A Life Quote from Lutherans For Life
