A Message from Pastor Bob

The Joy of Following Jesus
So when the devil throws your sins in your face and declares that you deserve death and hell, tell him this: "I admit that I deserve death and hell, what of it? For I know One who suffered and made satisfaction on my behalf. His name is Jesus Christ, Son of God, and where He is, there I shall be also!” – Martin Luther, 16th Century German Monk and Scholar Martin Luther, one of the reformers of the Christian Church, said many amazing things. Some were amazing for being so right, others for being so wrong. But he knew his hope did not come through his pen or his church, but from following Jesus. On October 31 of each year, we celebrate the day Lu-ther publicly challenged the church to stop wor-shipping the Bible and church fathers, and to start following Jesus. It was in Wittenberg, Germany on October 31, 1517, and the world has never been the same since.


One of Luther’s greatest accomplishments was to translate the Bible from Latin – the language of the elite and highly educated – into German, the lan-guage of the masses. He sought to have the church preach that following Jesus brought the hope, grace, and mercy that all humans sought. Since most people couldn’t even read their native lan-guage in Luther’s day, the church leaders intention-ally manipulated and misled the people, making rules and regulations that were not biblical, and served only to make the church leaders rich and politically formidable. The church controlled peo-ple with the fear of damnation and demanded fi-nancial payments to ensure eternal life. Jesus was virtually nowhere to be found in the teaching of the 16th century church.


Following Jesus, and studying his teachings, led Luther from believing in an angry God set only on the destruction of the humanity, to believing in a Savior who loves the world so much he died in order to bring us the forgiveness of sins and eternal life. Sin shut the door between humanity and God; Jesus burst that door open wide, so we could be reunited with our Father/Creator, Sav-ior/ Redeemer, and Spirit/Comforter.


While we can embrace the joy of being the “Lutheran Brand” of Christians, Luther calls us first and foremost to follow Jesus, and to seek community with all, no exceptions. Especially now – in the midst of a worldwide pandemic and with political unrest in our country – being Christ-like to one another is vital. Since we know that we will be with Christ when all is said and done, let us invite others to live in hope at this very moment and join us in the heavenly celebra-tion yet to come.


Peace,
Pastor Bob
