InSPIREd Sunday - Our Savior's Lutheran


Our Savior's Lutheran
Mikana, WI


What Jesus Taught About Dealing With Enemies

"You have heard that it was said, You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy;  But I tell you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, to show that you are the children of your Father Who is in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the wicked and on the good, and makes the rain fall upon the upright and the wrongdoers [alike].


For if you love those who love you, what reward can you have? Do not even the tax collectors do that?  And if you greet only your brethren, what more than others are you doing? Do not even the Gentiles (the heathen) do that?

You, therefore, must be perfect [growing into complete maturity of godliness in mind and character, having reached the proper height of virtue and integrity], as your heavenly Father is perfect."  - Matthew 5:43-48, Amplified Bible 


 Calling the faithful to worship



"But when the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered themselves together.  One of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” And He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’  This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets.”  - Matthew 22:34-40, NASB


Have a blessed Lord's Day, friends!

Beautiful church.
Have a nice Sunday.

Hannah said...

Cute bell tower, I don't hear modern churches ever ring bells. I enjoyed your scriptures, too. Along those lines, I like Proverbs 16:7 too, When a man's ways please the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.

Lovely! Thanks for the shot of the bell. Tom The Backroads Traveller

That is a beautiful church and I love the shape of the steeple and bell tower, and of course, the scripture. Happy Mother's Day!

Ginny said...

Now this is what I call a proper church. The kind that we see in our minds when we think of a church. A little white church, a steeple with a cross, and a bell tower. Perfect

Tired Teacher said...

The faith of our ancestors was STRONG as evidenced by the churches that dot the Midwest! This country church with its steeple and bell is beautiful. I pray our country finds its way back to the beliefs that made us strong.
