“Though devils all the world should fill, All eager to devour us, We tremble not, we fear no ill; They shall not overpower us.  And take they our life, Goods, fame, child, and wife, Though these all be gone, Our Vict’ry has been won; The kingdom ours remaineth.

Reading the Psalms with Luther

READ: 2nd Chronicles 20:1-23 Psalm 76 Luke 9:37-50

The 76th Psalm, once again, is a Psalm of thanks, similar to the 46th Psalm. For it gives thanks that God has His dwelling, Word, and worship in Jerusalem and that he magnificently protects His people from being devoured by the kings and the rage of warriors such as Sennacherib. God knew how to take courage away from princes and make them discouraged.
In the same way he fights against our enemies. As strong and as evil as they may be, it is hard to defend themselves against God, who takes away at once their heart and courage. Even the devil flees when his courage fails him. What then can flesh and blood do? Such a warrior-God must be praised, who deals with this “noise of kings”. He can never save His own without a sword, by fright and fear alone.

PRAY: Thanks to you, Lord Jesus, for planting Your Gospel at this place, and gathering a Church that continues in Your Word. Drive far from us the indifference and apathy of these latter evil days. Cause our hearts to burn with zeal for the truth of Your Word, and preserve Your teaching at this place, that our children after us may still be found praising You. Amen.

 

 

“The Resurrection of our Lord” will be celebrated at Calvary Lutheran Church on Easter Sunday!

     A local radio station will join us at 9:30 a.m.  They will be broadcasting the service over the local airwaves.   We will meet in the Church parking lot, just as you would a Drive-In movie.  Everyone will stay in their vehicle, turn to the proper station, and we will proceed with worship. 

More information will be forth-coming the closer we get to this great day of Forgiveness, and God’s Rich Love.

PRAISE GOD FROM WHOM ALL BLESSINGS FLOW !

 

 

NO CHURCH SERVICES (INCLUDING LENT AND SUNDAY SERVICES) WILL BE HELD UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
