St. Paul Lutheran Church, Runge: It is God’s nature to be merciful
Pastor Randal Bruno used the Holy Gospel according to St. John, the fifth chapter as his focus for his Sunday message at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Runge. Jesus had performed some miracles earlier and at this time Jesus was in Jerusalem where he healed a man who had been an invalid for 38 years. This invalid was trying to get to a pool which supposedly had powers of healing. We too can be like an invalid who is blind, lame, or paralyzed which could describe the condition of the human heart in our Christian walk in that we try to solve our own ailments and problems on our own rather than turning to Jesus and trusting Him. Jesus is who we should place our trust-give yourself over to what God can do. God gave us his Son so we can find the truth. God knows you by name. Your future is secure. It is God's nature to be merciful.
Receive the blessing - The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you. The Lord look upon you with favor and give you peace. Amen.
