September 1, 2019 – Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost
Psalm 131; Hebrews 13:1-8; 2:24-26; Luke 14:1-11
“Look to God!” - Sermon Text: Luke 14:1-11 - Rev. Dr. Thomas Ahlersmeyer
There is a bit of the Pharisaical in each of us – diminishing God or exalting ourselves. God’s Word both condemns any attempt to place ourselves above God and reveals just how great are His ways, culminating in the life-giving cross and empty tomb of Jesus Christ. To the Pharisee within, God speaks from His Word a message of judgment and undeserved love, sternly commanding, and tenderly inviting us to Look to God!
