Lectionary Summaries


John 10:14 “I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me.” What does it mean to know the Lord? It starts with being known by the Lord: He claims us as His own and calls us by name. Then, once we are His, we learn to know Him…and in knowing Him we learn to imitate Him. And that is how the Christian life of good works and generosity grows from the Lord’s grace.

Life Message

[W]hen we faithfully proclaim God’s grace and truth and apply it to matters of the heart, we give Satan a bad day. People are ‘struck by the heart’ and realize their sin. People experience ‘evil of the heart’ because of their sin. Then the comforting Good News of ‘warfare ended,’ ‘iniquity pardoned,’ and boundless grace can restore that heart to ‘leaping’ once again. The Gospel is tailor made to speak to matters of the heart!” Rev. Dr. James I. Lamb, executive director of Lutherans For Life – A “Life Quote” from Lutherans For Life – www.lutheransforlife.org
