• Jesus: Servant of God

    When Jesus came to this earth it was not for glory or to be glorified. I am sure it was not glorious for Jesus to be born of a peasant Jewish girl, instead of a queen. I am sure it was not glorious for Jesus to be born in a stable full of animals, instead of a palace. Jesus came not to be glorified, but to serve.

  • What the cross was about

    As you are well aware, last Sunday was Easter. Hopefully you were able to join one of the many churches here in Spencer County for a “resurrection experience.” The cross is truly a sign of God’s love toward us. We are reminded of the agony Jesus went though on the cross and His glorious resurrection needed to pay the price of our sins.

  • Sleepless nights

    We all have those sleepless nights from time to time, some of us more often than others. I have been plagued with a touch of insomnia all my life. Sometimes I just call it being a night person, but it really just means I don’t sleep well. I don’t know when it actually started, but I can remember sleepless or at least very restless nights even back when I was in grade school.

  • A WORD FROM THE WORD by STEVE GETTINGER Pastor, Risen Lord Lutheran Church

    The Gospel reading for today’s message is from John 3:16: For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life.

    This is one of the best known verses of the Bible. The words are simple, but yet profound. They are the Gospel message captured in a few words. If you can understand these few verses, they will be the cause of great joy and allow you to protect your faith against false teachings. Let us take some time and mine the riches of John 3:16.
