Sowing Seeds - The Parable of the Sower

Today we learn that what we do in this life matters.  That we will reap what we sow.  We don't always sow good and holy things, but God forgives us and he renews us for work in his Kingdom.  We know He will equip us to sow the seeds of His Kingdom in the world around us - to our friends, family, neighbors, coworkers and community so that the seeds which are planted may bear fruit in our world.

Confirmation Sunday

If you are new to Christ Lutheran Vail Church or a visitor, you may be wondering "what is Confirmation and why do we do it?"  Confirmation is, in essence, an affirmation of Baptism.  It is an opportunity for our young adults to affirm for themselves the promises that their parents, sponsors and congregation made for them at their baptism.  Today we heard from our young adults as they prepared different ways of sharing their faith.

Lost - The Parable of the Lost Sheep

Jesus hears the voice of the one lost, alone, unprotected sheep in the midst of the flock.  If we can understand that we are the ones that are lost and that Jesus left His Father in heaven and risked everything to come and rescue us, then we can understand why Jesus loves the lost and just how much He truly loves us.

From Weeping to Weeping

Early on Sunday morning, the ladies went to the tomb to prepare Jesus for burial.  But when they arrived, the stone was rolled away and the tomb empty.  How joyful they were to find out that Jesus burst through death and wrote a new chapter in humanity.  Today we celebrate that Jesus is risen!  He is risen indeed!  Hallelujah!

Mocking Jesus - True King

The most powerful force on earth is acceptance by our culture.  One of the ways we deal with people who we don’t understand is to mock them and banish them from culture.  Then we belittle them, throw away their books and teachings, and relegate them to the trash heap of History.  The world tried to do that with Jesus, but His teachings have proven to be true.  The words that were heaped as insults on Jesus were actually true.  This Lent we will look at those words and see how Jesus got the last laugh as their insults were turned to eternal truths.
