Defeating the Master Misleader

You can also watch on our Facebook page. God’s Word alerts us that we face a powerful enemy. That enemy is Satan. He’s really after 3 things in your life. Your faith in God. Your connection with other Christians. Your walk in God’s Word in your life. Knowing the enemy and how the enemy operates is necessary if we’re going to be ready to fight. A preferred tactic of his is to plant seeds of doubt in the form of…

Love

You can also watch on our Facebook page. Love can be such a confusing word, can’t it? We love our spouse, but we also love our pets and certain flavors of Kopp’s custard. We love God, but we also love our favorite restaurants and sports teams. We love our parents and our kids, but we also love our home. If love means different things to different people, are we even sure what it means? What better day, than Valentine’s Day,…

Brotherly Kindness

You can also watch on our Facebook page. “He ain’t heavy! He’s my brother!” was one of the most popular songs of the 60’s. The original name of this song came from a Vietnam War photo where an American solider is carrying a Vietnamese man on his shoulders. A journalist asked the soldier if he’d been carrying the man very far, and the soldier smiled at the camera and said: “He ain’t heavy! He’s my brother!” That’s the point we…

Perseverance

You can also watch on our Facebook page. Flogged and beaten repeatedly, stoned and shipwrecked several times ….. Everywhere the Apostle Paul turned, he faced struggles and hardships. Struggles were part of a typical day in the life of Paul. What could possibly motivate him to keep pushing on and to persevere in the face of all that? Thankfully, our typical days don’t look like Paul’s. But our days have plenty of challenges. Join us this Sunday at St. Paul’s…

Self-Control

You can also watch on our Facebook page. Four-year-old Joe was well-behaved except for one quirk – he didn’t like wearing shoes, ever. Joe’s parents repeatedly told him he had to keep them on when he was at church for his first VBS. Would he, could he resist the temptation to take his shoes off during VBS, especially when the art project was making a plaster cast foot print of each child? This week’s Christian quality is “Self-Control” in our…

Christ the Crusher

You can also watch on our Facebook page. For people who lived in the small communities south of Milwaukee, “The Crusher” was a household name. He was part of one of the first professional wrestling group, and he called South Milwaukee, Wisconsin home. His massive hands and brute strength allowed him to crush just about anything. No, we aren’t honoring “The Crusher” this weekend, but our worship at St. Paul’s centers around someone nicknamed “The Head Crusher.” In Genesis chapter…

Jesus our King

You can also watch on our Facebook page. Did you know that your Savior has a tattoo? He sure does. Because he fought your enemies for you on the cross and will continue to fight for you each day and in every way, he’s earned another title: “On his thigh he has this name written: King of kings” (Revelation 19). That makes the King of kings your king! In addition to fighting your enemies of sin, death and Satan, he…

Jesus our Priest

You can also watch on our Facebook page. Quick, give me the name of a priest in the Bible … any priest Old or New Testament? Prophets we know. Kings we know. But priests? Did you come up with Aaron, Moses’ brother? Or, Zechariah, John the Baptist’s father? Or those bad guys at Jesus’ trial, Caiaphas and his father-in-law, Annas? This weekend’s worship at St. Paul’s will add the name of another priest – Melchizedek. Maybe you’ve heard of him,…
