“Pointless!” he cries. “Everything is pointless!” Such a cry may sound familiar to you. You’ll hear something like it in today’s Old Testament Reading. Do you ever feel that your work is pointless, a chasing after the wind? Do you ever feel empty at the end of a busy week? Do you ever scratch your head and wonder, “Is there a point to all of this?” If you do, you are not alone. You are not alone in feeling that way, nor are you alone as you seek to be renewed in your Savior’s presence today! As you gather with your family in Christ and rest from your labors during this hour of worship, God is at work! He is here by His grace to forgive your sins, to refresh your soul, and to fill you with new life by His Word and Spirit. Jesus comes to you today to give you meaning for your daily life and to fill you with joy in His presence!
Pastor's Message -
Holy Communion will be offered
Welcome to the Holy Cross Lutheran Church web site. We are glad you have stopped by as we gather before the altar of God the Father and beneath the cross of His Son, Jesus Christ. These are big days for our little congregation and we want you to share in our excitement with the spiritual leadership of Pastor Steve and pray that together we will grow in spirit and in numbers.
In God's Word today we hear about faith - no matter how little - that can accomplish great things in God's Kingdom. But we also hear a warning for those who would water down the Gospel and become a stumbling block to the faithful.
How are we called to respond to those who get in the way of the message of Christ Crucified? We call them to repent and then we forgive them. The church is in the forgiveness business. Faith, even a mustard seed sized faith clings to Jesus.
We are called to be faithful but also to remove the stumbling blocks that would cause other to lose faith. We are all unworthy servants and yet have been given a great responsibility with the faith we have. Faith is active and busy and even just a little can be used to bring the assurance of salvation to all who will hear.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us... Hebrews 12:1
