Sermon: “I Need a King!?” Jeremiah 23:1–6

July 18, 2021 • Rev. Kenny Hsu

We enjoy lives of liberty and freedom—freedom especially from any oppressive or tyrannical political government. Spiritually, however, we are not free, but slaves to sin and death. Spiritually, we need a deliverer, a Savior, a benevolent king. Paul reminds us of how, because of sin, being apart from God we had no hope. But he points us to Christ Jesus, who came to bring us near to the one hope of salvation by His blood. Jesus is the saving King who takes away your sin and delivers you through death. The Shepherd’s compassion is for all and is for you. The title “King” was placed above His head on the cross. Now by His victory, all earthly sovereigns cast their crowns before Him. Receive His compassionate rule today as He brings us near to Himself by His Word and Sacraments and calls you blessed.

Sermon: “I Promise” Genesis 9:8-17 • July 25, 2021 • Rev. Kenny Hsu

God’s promise of life in the rainbow summons us to hope in God. The apostle Paul urges us to discover and to know how real and firm is God’s love. Like the fearful disciples in today’s Gospel, we may have doubts of faith. But God’s Word assures us: “Take heart; it is I. Do not be afraid” (Mark 6:50). This causes us to stop our worrying and believe. Hope in God can calm you. The love of God can convince you. Here, now, at His mighty Word, your sins are forgiven, and you have hope, love, and life. We now gather before Him, our Creator, our Redeemer, and our loving God.
