Tenth Sunday after Trinity
08 August 2021
Jesus Weeps for Jerusalem
Our Lord wept over Jerusalem for the destruction that would soon come upon her. For she did not recognize the time of God’s visitation in Christ, who had come to bring her peace (St. Luke 19.41–48). Through His prophets God had consistently called His people to turn from their deceit and false worship. “But My people do not know the judgments of the Lord” (Jeremiah 8.4–12). They sought to establish their own righteousness rather than receive Christ’s righteousness through faith So it was that God was in His temple to cleanse it, a precursor to the once-for-all cleansing from sin which He would accomplish in the temple of His own body on the cross. God grant us to know the things that make for our peace—His visitation in the Word and Sacraments—that by the Holy Spirit we may penitently confess “Jesus is Lord” (1 Corinthians 12.1–11).
Altar Flowers are given to the glory of God by Mr. & Mrs. Dave Morge in memory of Roy and Renee Greenwood.
