We Believe, Teach, and Confess

This year we are enjoying sermons on the catechism. Luther’s Small Catechism is one of the Lutheran Confessions. Our church is a Confessional Lutheran church, meaning that we declare wholeheartedly that we agree with these doctrinal standards. The Lutheran Confessions (collected in the Lutheran Book of Concord) are not considered to be an equal authority with the Holy Scriptures. However, we believe…

“Lift Up Your Heads”

We sing a hymn during Advent titled “Lift up your heads, ye mighty gates.” In one of the Scripture readings during Advent, from the gospels, we hear Jesus our Lord say: “Lift up your heads.” This is good advice.

“Learn From Me”

At the end of Matthew 11, Jesus famously says, “Come to Me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Jesus also said: “Learn from Me … for I am gentle and lowly of heart.” This is not the kind of learning that you are graded on or in which you are given a lecture. This is…
