Members at Our Saviour experiencing the forgiveness and love of Christ strive to live out the command of Jesus to, "Love one another" both among our membership and the wider community of Northwest Toronto. The strength to love and forgive comes from being rooted in the Word of God and faithful reception of His Sacraments. We believe that God is present with us each Sunday and his guiding nurturing hand is upon our Sunday School, Bible Classes, mission outreach and fellowship events. What a blessing!

Today's Readings

Jesus Calls forth Life from Death

A large funeral procession carrying the only
son of a widow is confronted by another large procession,
Jesus and His followers.
Death and Life meet face to face at the gate of the city
(Luke 7:11–17).
Filled with compassion,
Jesus comes into direct contact
with our mortality in order to overcome it.
He touches the coffin and speaks His creative words of life,
“Young man, I say to you, arise.”
Jesus does what is neither expected nor requested.
For through Christ,
God the Father
“is able to do far more abundantly than all we ask or think”
(Eph. 3:14–21).
Jesus bore our death in His body
that we may share in His resurrection.
Even as Elijah stretched himself out three times
over the Zarephath woman’s son
(2 Kings 17:17–24),
God stretched Himself out over us in the
threefold application of His name in the baptismal water,
breathing new and everlasting life into us.
“To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus
throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”

We Praise God for Sustaining Life in and through His Word


The nation resounds with thanksgiving
for the earth’s bountiful harvest,
crops of wheat and grains,
all beneath the canopy of God’s almighty care.
But
“man does not live by bread alone,
but man lives by every word
that comes from the mouth of the Lord”
(Deut. 8:1–10).
The Church is the vessel through which the
Word of God penetrates the world with its Law and Gospel.
 It is this divine Word which proclaims Jesus
as the sole source of life, health, and wholeness.
It is Jesus who heals lepers with His Word,
“Go show yourselves to the priests”
(Luke 17:11–19).
Of the ten cleansed,
only one expresses thanksgiving back to Jesus.
But true gratitude proceeds from a heart sustained by faith.
Jesus bids this one Samaritan to
“rise and go your way; your faith has made you well.”
So also,
we are sent from the Divine Service,
bolstered in our faith by Baptismal and Eucharist blessing to be thankful in our circumstances of plenty and hunger,
abundance and need
(Phil. 4:6–20).

Today's Readings

In Life and Death, Christ Fulfills the Law of God

The Pharisees ask a Law question.
Jesus asks a Gospel question.
The Pharisees seek to test Jesus in His own words.
Jesus seeks to
“test”
them in the saving reality of who He is as the Messiah
(Matt. 22:34–46).
The Law requires you to
“fear the LORD your God,
to walk in all his ways,
to love him,
to serve the LORD your God
with all your heart and with all your soul”

and to
“love the sojouner”
(Deut. 10:12–21).
Failure to keep the Law perfectly brings judgment.
On the other hand,
the Gospel brings the grace of God given by Jesus Christ,
that you may be blameless in the day of His return
(1 Cor. 1:1–9).
Jesus is David’s Son yet David’s Lord,
true God and true man.
He is Love incarnate who fulfilled
all the demands of God’s Law on our behalf,
that we might be saved from the
Law’s condemnation and sanctified in the Gospel’s forgiveness.
Thereby we see that
“God is faithful,
by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son,
Jesus Christ our Lord”

(1 Cor. 1:9).


 


SUNDAY OCTOBER 27th 2019

~ REFORMATION



On October 31,1517, an Augustinian Monk
posted ninety-five statements for discussion
on the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany.

Dr. Martin Luther hoped that posting his theses
would bring about an academic debate
regarding repentance,
the sale of indulgences,
and other matters of concern within the church.

However,
Rome eventually excommunicated Luther,
judging him to be a heretic.
Luther's reforms,
centered on the teaching that a believer
is justified by grace through faith in Jesus Christ,
sparked religious reforms not only in German states but also in many European countries.

In 1667, Elector John George II of Saxony
standardized the custom of observing
Luther's October 31 posting of the Ninety-five Theses.

Today's Readings

The Son of God Has Set Us Free from
Sin and Death by His Grace


“Wisdom is justified by her deeds”
(Matt. 11:19),
and the true Wisdom of God,
Christ Jesus the incarnate Son, justifies us by His deeds.
He prepares His way by the preaching of repentance,
but He has suffered the violence of the Law and voluntarily
handed Himself over to violent men,
that we might eat and drink with Him in His Kingdom and
“remain in the house forever”
(John 8:35).
  For He is
“a friend of tax collectors and sinners”
(Matt. 11:19),
and He has rescued us by His grace
from the slavery of sin and death.
By the proclamation of His eternal Gospel
“to those who dwell on earth,
to every nation and tribe and language and people”

(Rev. 14:6),
“the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law”
(Rom. 3:21),
“that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus”
(Rom. 3:26).
And by hearing the Gospel of Christ Jesus,
“whom God put forward as a propitiation by His blood,
to be received by faith”

(Rom. 3:25),
“you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free”
(John 8:31–32).



Our Saviour Lutheran Church offers wheelchair access and seating in the church for our worship services, as well as accessible washrooms by elevator on the main and lower floors.
