Ep 117 - The Last One • January 1, 2020 • Pastor Harrison Goodman

"Therefore let every father of a family know that it is his duty, by the injunction and command of God, to teach these things to his children, or have them learn what they ought to know. For since they are baptized and received into the Christian Church, they should also enjoy this communion of the Sacrament, in order that they may serve us and be useful to us; for they must all indeed help us to believe, love, pray, and fight against the devil.Therefore let every father of a family know that it is his duty, by the injunction and command of God, to teach these things to his children, or have them learn what they ought to know.

Ep 116 - Who'd Win: the Supper vs. the Devil, the World, and Our Sinful Flesh • January 1, 2020 • Pastor Harrison Goodman

Luther tells us what the Lord's Supper is. He reminds us that God commands us to eat and drink it. He assures us that God attaches promises of forgiveness, life, and salvation to it. He also warns us what we're up against. Our sinful flesh. The world. The devil. The Lord's Supper grants victory over all 3.

Ep 115 - Rest Tastes Like Communion • January 1, 2020 • Pastor Harrison Goodman

"If, therefore, you are heavy-laden and feel your weakness, then go joyfully to this Sacrament and obtain refreshment, consolation, and strength. For if you would wait until you are rid of such burdens, that you might come to the Sacrament pure and worthy, you must forever stay away. For in that case He pronounces sentence and says: If you are pure and godly, you have no need of Me, and I, in turn, none of thee. Therefore those alone are called unworthy who neither feel their infirmities nor wish to be considered sinners."
