Pastor DeHope's May 16th Message

Dear friends in Christ,

“You never cease to amaze me!” This was the compliment I received from a friend after I shared some knowledge on a subject. It was sure nice hear. It felt good to be encouraged, to be recognized, to know that I, or at least information I had, was useful and valuable and that it helped him. It made me smile. It made me want to reciprocate. There was a part of me that was tempted to say, “I know – I’m an expert, an amazing expert”.  And while I might be at some things, I really lack in others. It was convicting as well. I surely don’t encourage and build up a lot of people like I should, like I could, if I looked a little harder or more frequently for opportunities. Each day is a new day, right?

It’s so easy to fall into the temptation of thinking that we truly are amazing, that WE can do anything by ourselves and that we are responsible for all our successes. We amaze ourselves. It’s easy to get too big for our britches, as they say; or like Icarus, to fly too close to the sun.

Does God amaze you? Does He ever cease to amaze you? Do you think about it much? How often do we bask in His amazing work? Thank Him for his gifts and providence? Recognize that God is the builder of everything (Heb 3:4)? Do you appreciate his perfect ways – even when they’re not your way? Do you give him credit for your successes? These are hard things. It’s easy to get caught up in the business of life, and the reliability of God’s good gifts. Every day our heart still beats, and we wake up in the morning; the sun rises in the east and sets in the west.

This week we celebrate confirmation and several of our young members will confess their faith in Christ before the congregation. How fitting that this is on Pentecost Sunday as we celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit! Our Lord Jesus promises the Holy Spirit, the Helper. The work of God the Holy Spirit is to point us always to Jesus who is our salvation, our life and our light. The Holy Spirit has led these young members to believe and confess their faith in Christ Jesus. The Holy Spirit has brought us to faith so that we believe, confess, and gather around Word and Sacrament for the forgiveness of sins. All these things truly are miracles each time they happen and keep happening since the devil the world and our own sinful flesh fight against it constantly.

Dear friends, think on these things. Thank, praise, and glorify God for the wonders he has done and continues to do in our lives and for our good.  Pray. Dear God, Thank you for providing for my needs of body and soul and for the forgiveness Jesus has won for me. Guide me by your spirit in paths of righteousness for your names’ sake that we remain faithful and live to serve you and our neighbor. Open our eyes to see you clearly and to be amazed. Draw us to seek you where you have promised to be for us and for our salvation in your Word and Supper. To you alone be the glory, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.

Blessings on your week,

Pastor DeHope
