Compassion means putting our faith into action in an important, tangible way. St Luke is joining other churches across the country in a movement to release children around the world from poverty through child sponsorship. Jesus taught us to serve the poor and those in need, about generosity and about why every child deserves hope. How can you bring hope to a child in need?   Subscribe to stay updated with the latest content. Follow St Luke Lutheran Church:

St. Luke Columbus Sermon Podcast

From the time that Jesus walked the earth, people have tried to define Jesus. What if we let Jesus define himself?

St. Luke Columbus Sermon Podcast

God is not against you. Jesus said, "This is my body given for you." "This cup is the new covenant in my blood shed for you." In Holy Communion, God, the Son, Jesus, comes face to face with us and says, This is me, for you. We can be certain that God the Son, Jesus, is right here with us. Holy Communion is for you and a profoundly personal encounter with Holy God.

When Jesus self-defined as the Good Shepherd, he said that the Good Shepherd lays down his life for the sheep, even the sheep that didn’t belong to him.

Jesus stated that his mission is to reach out to seek and to save those who are lost. Jesus taught this and lived it, as illustrated in his reaching out to the tax collector, Zacchaeus. This was the primary mission of Jesus. It's why he came. Our primary mission as the body of Christ, the Church, is to do the same. How effective are we doing in our mission?  How many people have moved from being lost to being found (saved)? 
 
I believe, as the pastor of St. Luke, that the reformation to which God is calling each of us and our St. Luke family is to become foundationally and organically evangelical, to raise our outreach temperature through changed behavior.
 
After hearing this sermon, we encourage you to write your own personal mission statement that includes reaching the lost and make one change of behavior that will raise your outreach temperature one degree.
