Well, we had nine people, that’s four more than I expected! We sang hymns, read Scripture (patterned after the Vespers service), and I preached for 2½ hours!
(well, not really, I just wanted to see if you were reading). It was refreshing for all of us; a time to enjoy worshiping together our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
I noted that in Luther’s explanation of the second article of the creed he writes:
I believe that Jesus Christ, true God, begotten of the Father from eternity, and also true Man, born of the Virgin Mary, is my Lord
As Lutherans we like to talk about the Savior Jesus, but not so much about Jesus is my Lord. But we cannot separate the two. The one who suffered and died and rose again as Savior is also the one who ascended into heaven and is reigning at the right hand of God the Father. He has all authority (Matthew 28:18)
So0, is Jesus your Lord?
