Eyes Forward

Passage: 1 Kings 8:54-61 2 Timothy 4:1-4 Matthew 10:26-33

2017 marks two significant anniversaries: the 500th anniversary of Luther’s posting of the 95 theses and the 57th anniversary of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League. Confessing the faith has not gotten any easier since these events occurred. In fact, it may be more difficult to speak and to live as Christians now—and the future may be even more challenging. Yet God is faithful; and He has promised His church will survive all the trials that the devil, the world, and our sinful flesh can throw at us. So now is the time to “Be Ready to Confess!”
