Welcome

 

Welcome, and thank you for visiting Saints Andrew & Matthias online. We hope that our website highlights the wide variety of worship, fellowship and service opportunities available. Please feel free to read more about our church on this site, or come in for a visit. We would love to greet you and share with you our love for Jesus Christ and for you, our neighbor.

Our Mission

 

We believe that the door to salvation is always open and so are the doors to our church. Our mission is to be fully devoted to Jesus by opening our arms to those in search of the truth. We show God’s love and concern for our fellow man at every opportunity. Through works of charity and opening our doors to listen and love, we feel that we are walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.

Prayers for Our Troops

 

Our church offers prayers for servicemen and women at every Morning Prayer or Evening Prayer service.

Amen

Trinity XVI

THIS WEEK'S TEXT

Isaiah 12

1 And in that day thou shalt say, O Lord, I will praise thee: though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me.

2 Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.

3 Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.

4 And in that day shall ye say, Praise the Lord, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted.

5 Sing unto the Lord; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth.

6 Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.

  A Guy told me that he read Charles Dickens book Great Expectations last week......and It wasn't as good as he thought it would be.

 

 

  Today's first lesson, from the Old Testament prophet Isaiah, is an example of the great expectations that God's people had for the future time, when their Savior, the Messiah, would come. We know that great expectation was fulfilled in Jesus Christ.

 

Isaiah 12:1 “And in that day thou shalt say, O Lord, I will praise thee: though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me.”

 

   Isaiah's prophecy of the great joy that God's children of the New Testament would experience, came some 750 years before Christ's birth. I'd like us to consider just why all Christians should feel this great joy and how that joy should be manifested in our lives as Christians.

 

   We should feel great joy over our salvation from God's wrath. God had, (and has),good reason to be angry with mankind.

 

  He created us in holiness and righteousness, in His own image, but we fell away from Him and into sin.

 

  We deserved punishment, but now through the saving blood of Jesus we are reconciled to God.

 

  This wonderful salvation was not accomplished by men, but by God. He sent His Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. (as Saint Paul tells us), “into the world to save sinners”.

 

   Isaiah tells us “with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation”. These wells of salvation for the New Testament Church are the Word and the Sacraments. God's Word, the Bible, with its message of forgiveness and salvation through Christ, and the Holy Sacraments with the comforting knowledge that Christ is with us in them, should fill all Christians with joy.

 

   This great joy should be shown forth in us in three ways.

 

  First, by praising God, by worshiping Him not only every Sunday in His Church, but also by our daily private devotions. Our thankfulness for our redemption should cause us to be always praising our God for his great mercy toward us.

 

  Secondly we should always be trying to glorify God through living our lives according to His will. As it says in the Baptismal Office we are to be “fighting under His banner, against sin, the world, and the devil” and “continue Christ's faithful soldier and servant” unto our life's end.

 

  Thirdly our joy should be manifested in a real devotion to spreading the “Good News” of the great message of salvation to others.

 

  We each have talents, given to us by our Heavenly Father, that we can use to, in some way, help build his Church. We should be happy to use them to bring others to the knowledge of Christ's love for us.

 

   God has indeed met those great expectations that Isaiah told of, by Christ's sacrifice on the cross for us, and all Christians should feel great joy as well as thankfulness always!

ALMIGHTY God, our heavenly Father, in whose hands are the living and the dead; We give thee thanks for all those thy servants who have laid down their lives in the service of our country.
