Jesus reveals His glory at the wedding feast in Cana, changing ordinary water into exquisite wine. (John 2:1-11) The Church treasures this miraculous sign, remembering, believing & receiving forgiveness in Jesus' divine blood, in, under & with ordinary wine. God in Christ binds Himself to His people, from the desolate nation of Israel in Isaiah's time to the Church of today. (Isaiah 62:1-5) She is the Bride & He is the Bridegroom, whose resolute faithfulness seals the marriage covenant with us forever. (1 Corinthians 12:1-11)
January 20 is also Sanctity of Life Sunday, reflecting the ongoing work of Lutherans for Life:
You “have been borne by me from before your birth, carried from the womb; even to your old age I am he, and to gray hairs I will carry you. I have made, and I will bear; I will carry and will save.” (Isaiah 46:3b-4)
Every human being is different.
Different sizes. Different skills.
Death never makes our differences or difficulties go away.
Each one of us is unique.
All are special. All are precious.
All of us made in the image of God.
All of us redeemed by His Son’s incarnation.
All of us embraced with His Spirit for everlasting family.
Our differences and failings can’t change God’s grace.
The Heavenly Father’s truth and love make human lives sacred.
Across all generations He gives every member of our race immeasurable significance.
For forty years Lutherans For Life has declared it and demonstrated it.
You are beloved, no matter how young. You belong, no matter how old.
Let’s share this Gospel message with courage and compassion.
Let us help you receive individual differences with rejoicing, not rejecting.
Our Savior says “Yes!” to life. We say “Amen!”
