Weekly sermons from Concordia Lutheran Church in San Antonio, Texas.
Faith and Family: White Picket Fence (Week 1)
When God created Adam and Eve, He created history’s first family. He also placed them in an idyllic setting. Their yard was perfect. But Adam and Eve’s sin stained not only their family, but the whole human family. The white picket fence was replaced by a flaming sword to keep Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:24). But in the middle of this mess, God promises a descendant who will restore their family. What our family needs most of all is not a white picket fence, but a cross.
Work That Works
When God is putting forth plans for the building of the tabernacle, He gives people the talents to do the work He needs. God has given us talents, too. How we steward our talents will guide how we feel about our work. Work can be a burden. But when we steward our talents well, work can also be a gift.
Deuteronomy: A Lasting Legacy (Week 12)
Moses dies before Israel enters the Promised Land. But Moses leaves a lasting legacy. He had a special, close relationship with God that ultimately foreshadows Christ’s perfect relationship with God.
Deuteronomy: Making a Covenant (Week 11)
“Covenant” is a word we hear in church, but we don’t use it in many other places. Yet, this word is foundational to what it means to have a relationship with God and, when we understand it, can change our relationships with others for the better.
Deuteronomy: Blessing in Obedience (Week 10)
As God establishes a covenant with Israel, He expects them to obey the stipulations of His covenant. Obedience leads to blessings. History, however, reminds us that the Israelites do not obey this covenant. This is why God must establish a new covenant in Christ.
Deuteronomy: Working Through War (Week 9)
One of the most common questions that people ask about the Old Testament has to do with the violent stories in it. In this section, God lays down some rules of engagement for war. We see that God is not bloodthirsty, but careful and thoughtful and uses battle not as a first, but as a last, resort.
We moved from San Antonio in May 2007. We miss Concordia and it's wonderful services. While we are still searching for the right church for our family in our new home, I can still enjoy the sermons I miss through itunes. Thank you and keep up the great work!
Well done Concordia
I've lived in San Antonio, but never discovered this church while living there. However, iTunes showed me that there was a Lutheran service on the web. Well produced with talented people making everything happen. Of course, the most important part of a service is having a pastor that can preach from the heart. Concordia has that as well. Well done. Thanks for making this free podcast available to those of us well outside the area.
