Getting into God's Word

Weekly Readings

April 11 2nd Sunday of Easter

Oh, to be of one heart and one soul with other people. The people of God are blessed with this aptitude. Indeed, they are endowed with this great gift right along with the whole earth. Praise the Lord! Therein lies our ability to be of one heart and soul. We have so much to praise him for, as do the sun and moon, angels and kings, young and old alike. For he has brought light into a dark world, forgiven and cleansed us. He has given us his Holy Spirit and peace. Praise the Lord! (

April 18 3rd Sunday of Easter

Trust in piety and magic have no place in the Christian faith. We dare not trust anything but the name of Jesus. As the old hymn says, our “hope is built on nothing less” (Edward Mote). Christ alone is our righteousness. We are “clothed in his righteousness alone,” not in a righteousness of our own power or piety. We cannot effect our own righteousness, as God is our righteousness. This is how we are made into God’s children: through faith in the Name. This is how we will boldly face him on that Day: at peace in his righteousness. (

April 25 4th Sunday of Easter

“Who you gonna call?” goes the line from the movie “Ghostbusters” theme song. That is silly stuff but the question is nevertheless a serious one. We are able to successfully call upon no other name than Jesus when it comes to being saved from eternal damnation and death. Even when we walk through that death’s valley, we who believe in that Name, have no need to fear. Even when our heart condemns us—usually because the law is accusing us of sins—we have confidence before God, and peace. Why” Because we keep the greatest commandment: that we believe in him who laid down his life for us. Who else would you call?(
