The Twenty-Fourth Sunday after Pentecost

How far are you from the kingdom of God?

God gave us his Word so that we would understand it, believe it, and live it. His Word causes us to reflect on our lives to see how well we measure up to it. The truth is that we fall far short of it. Jesus, however, does not. He sacrificed himself for our sins once for all to make us perfect and to bring us into his kingdom.

Here is God's Word for this coming Sunday and Monday that shows us Jesus who brings us into the kingdom of God:
Deuteronomy 6:1-9
Hebrews 7:23-28
Mark 12:28-34

"I rejoiced with those who said to me, 'Let us go to the house of the LORD.'" (Psalm 122:1) I pray that I will see you all on Sunday or Monday. God bless!

      - In Christ, Pastor Jon Klein
