So do not fear, for I am with  you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand . Isaiah 41:10
 
As we look at our Sunday bulletin and see our ever lengthening list of people who are ill or in need and also as we look at the concerns for our community and country, we see an ever increasing need for prayer. Therefore, we ask each of you to increase your prayers in this time of need. 
 
Have you ever noticed the beautiful flower arrangements on the altar during our services? These are just another example of God’s beauty and love. Each month, these are provided by congregation members in honor or in memory of loved ones. If this is something you would be interested in, look for the flower signup sheet in the Narthex or contact any altar committee member for details. Thank you for your thoughtfulness and helping to make our services even more beautiful. 
 
Thank you,   The Altar Committee

Life and Action 
 
The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified.  He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.” (Matthew 28:5-6)   
Blessings to you as we approach Easter Sunday on April 21. 
 
In the third article we confess that the Holy Spirit calls, gathers, enlightens and sanctifies us.  He does this through the sacramental life which includes Baptism, absolution, and the Lord’s Supper.  The driving force behind the sacraments is the Word of God.  God’s Word isn’t just printed ink.  It’s not just a bunch a bunch of information that requires a decision for action on our part.  The Word of God is the life and action through which God works in our lives in a variety of forms.  It is the active agent through which God created the universe.  And God said provides all the evidence of how powerful God’s Word truly is.  It is through this living and active power that you and I receive salvation.  The Word became flesh and dwelt among us.  The Word of God in flesh is Jesus.  Our Lord and Savior gives us the sacramental life as an external object of faith.  We do not receive the benefit without faith.  We see God’s presence in the selected elements from the created order; that is water, bread and wine.  God gave us something to see, touch and taste from his creation.  Here is more on God’s Word in life and action:   
 
Genesis 1:1 - God created. 
 
Psalm 119:105 — Your Word is a lamp and a light. 
 
Proverbs 30:5 — “Every word of God is flawless.” 
 
Isaiah 55:11 — The Word will achieve the purpose for which it was sent. 
 
John 1:14 —  “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.” 
 
Romans 1:16 — The Gospel is the power of God for everyone. 
 
Hebrews 4:12 — God’s Word is living and active.
