St Paul is all about Jesus Christ. St Paul exists and is on its mission because God's mission to reclaim the world reaches us in the proclaimed and sung and praised word of Jesus Christ. God's mission is to us and through us to others.
The Biblical Word never gets old. The apostle Paul in Romans 12 says: "Because of the mercies, the kindness, the gifts of God in Christ Jesus embodied in the Word spoken on the lips of another (Romans 10), your bodies are holy and acceptable and beautiful to God." Today it seems the advertisers and mass media have taken over the narrative. They don't tell you of the mercies of God, of the gift of life over death. That's a downer. They don't talk about death at all but only about resurrection if you purchase their product. They want to convince you of great health and a prolonged life at a low, low price. How is it working for you? The mercies of God are given over, bestowed in the Word of Christ: "I forgive you. I will raise you from the dead." This is story of life that will not fail you. It's so good. ---------------Rev Ken Edel, Pastor
