June 4 marks the first of our summer Monday night services.
"The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath." God gave His people the Sabbath as a time of rest to remember the great things He has done for us. (Deuteronomy 5:12-15) The Pharisees of Jesus' time turned that gift into works-righteousness, as the Savior masterfully revealed. (Mark 2:23-3:6) In receiving Word & Sacrament, we find Jesus Christ, our true Sabbath rest. The devil's assaults on the jars of clay that we are cannot take that rest from us, for the power belongs to God! (2 Corinthians 4:5-12)
