Sixth Sunday after Trinity
28 July 2019
Our Only Hope Is in Christ’s Righteousness
“Unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven” (St. Matthew 5.20). God demands nothing less than perfection and holiness from you in regard to His commandments (Exodus 20.1–17). Your only hope, then, is not in your own goodness but in the goodness of Christ, who did not come to destroy the Law and the Prophets, but to fulfill them for you. In Christ, your righteousness does indeed exceed that of the scribes and Pharisees. For you have been baptized into Christ’s death and your sinful nature crucified. Therefore, he who has died has been freed from sin (Romans 6.1–11). You are now raised with Christ to walk in newness of life and to share in His resurrection on the Last Day. Christ has brought you through the baptismal sea “out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery” (Exodus 20.2). Therefore, “consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus” (Romans 6.11).
Altar Flowers are given to the glory of God by Mr. & Mrs. Kris Wineinger in honor of John and Hannah’s baptismal birthdays.
