How Jesus Treats His Friends - Fifth Sunday in Lent 2020 - Immanuel Lutheran Church Five Forks Simpsonville SC

Online Service: Fifth Sunday in Lent

“Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the LORD GOD is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation.” (Isaiah 12:2)

Members and friends of Immanuel:

What we call uncertain times can cause us to become afraid, but we need to remember our salvation is in the LORD. Our life is a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. (James 4:14) There is only certainty in the salvation Jesus has accomplished for us on the cross and in His resurrection. Trust Him.

“Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before God. Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows.” (Luke 12:6-8)

Members and friends of Immanuel:

Have you ever seen and heard a small bird flit by your window chirping happily and considered these words of our Lord? His words bring peace. We are not promised health or wealth in this life, but Jesus promises to care for us. “Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows.”

Online Matins Service: Fourth Sunday in Lent

“My dwelling place shall be with them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.” (Ezekiel 37:27)

Members and friends of Immanuel:

While the current circumstances have given us more time to spend in our own dwellings, let us remember God’s dwelling place is with us: Immanuel, God With Us. He washes us with His Word and opens in us springs of Living Water which will sustain us to eternal life with Him. We can trust in the words of our LORD when He says, “I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20)

“I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the LORD!”” (Psalms 122:1)

Members and friends of Immanuel:

Going to the house of the LORD online is a blessing when we are not able to gather with the body of Christ in a church building. Our LORD is not limited by time or space when He says,
“For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” (Matthew 18:20)
