Jan 23 2022 Gathered, Hearing, Praising

And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture has been fulfilled

in your hearing.” And all spoke well of Him and marveled at the

gracious words that were coming from His mouth. Luke 4:21–22 Each one of us comes into God’s house

individually, from different backgrounds, families, situations,

experiences, challenges, and joys. But here, in God’s house,

something happens that makes us not just a collection of individuals

but joined together as one person, one Body. This unity happens

because we have been gathered by one Baptism in one faith in one

Lord, our God whose greatness has been shown in our hearts and to the

world in His Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. Here our Lord speaks, and

we listen. And in the listening, we are moved to repentance and faith,

true repentance of heart over our sins and true faith that knows that

the Scriptures, the Word of God, are fulfilled in the Lord Jesus

Christ. May true joy motivate our praise of God here and all our days

as God’s people scattered throughout the world.
