August 21 2016 Worship Recap :: My Soul Thirsts

“You should tell the devil: ‘Just by telling me that I am a miserable, great sinner you are placing a sword and a weapon into my hand with which I can decisively overcome you; yea, with your own weapon I can kill and floor you. For if you tell me that I am a poor sinner, I, on the other hand, can tell you that Christ dies for sinners and is their Intercessor…You remind me of the boundless, great faithfulness and benefaction of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The burden of my sins and all the trouble and misery that were to oppress me eternally He very gladly took upon His shoulders and suffered the bitter death on the cross for them. To Him I direct you. You may accuse and condemn Him. Let me rest in peace, for on His shoulders, not on mine, lie all my sins and the sins of all the world.” (Martin Luther)

July 31 2016 Worship Recap :: My Help and My Deliverer

“If Christ ‘tasted death for all men’ and became the archetypal Sufferer, then the expressions of all who ever suffered in the world are, from the very nature of things, related to His. All the sufferings of the righteous, and …in Psalm 40:15, all the sufferings of the guilty, too—‘ my sins have taken such hold upon me that I am not able to look up.’ This, too, is for us the voice of Christ, for we have been taught that He who was without sin became sin for our sakes, plumbed the depth of the worst suffering which comes to evil men who at last know their own evil.” (C.S. Lewis)
