Summary of the Day:
The Holy Trinity Reveals Himself to Sinners
When Isaiah beheld the glory of the Lord, he cried out “Woe is me!” For the sinner cannot stand in the presence of a holy God and live (Is. 6:1–7). But God the Father lifted up His Son Jesus for us on the cross, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. This eternal life of Christ is given us according to the Holy Spirit’s good pleasure in Baptism. “Unless one is born [again] of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God” (John 3:5). To sinners in fear of death, the messengers of God place on our lips the living body and blood of Christ and speak His words of absolution, “Your guilt is taken away, and your sin atoned for” (Is. 6:7). Having received forgiveness and life from the Father through the Son by the Holy Spirit, we join with the angels in praising the blessed Trinity, “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts!” (Is. 6:3). “For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be glory forever. Amen” (Rom. 11:33–36).
Sunday Divine Service – 9:30 am
If you are unable to join us this Sunday, please use these resources to lead your family together in hearing the Word and in prayer. The printable propers are for use during our live stream.
The Athanasian Creed:
This Sunday we confess the Athanasian Creed, one of the three Ecumenical creeds. The doctrine contained in the Creed is held in common among all Christians and is considered universal, “catholic.” The Athanasian Creed is the longest of the three Ecumenical Creeds and the most exhaustive with regards to the Trinity. One will not find a superior definition of the Trinity, nor a more demanding Creed in terms of its technical aspects.
