We are a member congregation of the Lutheran Church Canada - East District..


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!
    Come and join us!

The Summary of Readings Today

Jesus Is Our Redemption

In the temple Jesus said,
If anyone keeps my word, he will never see death
(John 8:51).
For Jesus came to taste death for us—
to drink the cup of suffering to the dregs in order
that we might be released from its power. Clinging to
His life-giving words, we are delivered from death’s sting
and its eternal judgment. Christ is our High Priest,
who entered the Most Holy Place and with His own
blood obtained everlasting redemption for His people
(Heb. 9:11–15).
He is the One who was before Abraham was, and yet
is his descendant. He is the promised Son who carries the
wood up the mountain for the sacrifice, who is bound and laid
upon the altar of the cross. He is the ram who is offered in
our place, who is willingly caught in the thicket of our sin,
and who wears the crown of thorns upon His head
(Gen. 22:1–14).
Though Jesus is dishonored by the sons of the devil,
He is vindicated by the Father through the cross.

The Summary of Readings Today


Behold, your King is coming to you . . .
humble and mounted on a donkey”

(Zech. 9:9–12; Mt. 21:1–9).
Our Lord rides in this humble fashion because
He is entering Jerusalem to humble Himself
even to the point of death on a cross
(Phil. 2:5–11).
His kingly crown will not be made of gold but of
thorns, the sign of sin’s curse. For His royal reign is
displayed in bearing this curse for His people,
saving us from our enemies by sacrificing His own life.
The sinless One takes the place of the sinner so that
the sinner can be freed and bear the name
Barabbas,” “son of the Father
(Matthew 26 and 27).
It is at the name of this exalted Savior, Jesus, that we
bow in humble faith. With the centurion who declared,
Truly this was the Son of God!
(Mt. 27:54),
we are also given to confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father
(Phil. 2:11).

The Summary of Readings Today

Let Us Love One Another, as Christ Jesus Has Loved Us

For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup,
you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes

(1 Cor. 11:26).
By eating His body and drinking His blood,
we proclaim to all the world that Jesus is, indeed,
our Passover Lamb
(Ex. 12:1–14),
who was sacrificed for us on Calvary.
In Christ, the Lord remembers us in mercy and
remembers our sin no more;
He forgives us all our iniquity.
With such love, he
loved His own who were in the world,”
and even loves us “to the end
(John 13:1).
As He washes us and feeds us in love,
let us love one another, just as He has loved us
(John 13:34).

The Summary of Readings Today

Behold the Lamb of God, Who Takes Away the Sin of the World

Jesus, the Lamb of God, is led to the slaughter
of His cross as the sacrifice of atonement for the sins of the world. “Despised and rejected by men;
a man of sorrows,
and acquainted with grief

(Is. 53:3),
He is the righteous Servant who justifies many by
His innocent suffering and death.
He bears our griefs and carries our sorrows;
He is wounded for our transgressions;
He is crushed for our iniquities;
He suffers our chastisement, so that
with His stripes we are healed
(Is. 53:4–5).
As the Son of God,
He fulfills the Law for us in human flesh,
and so fulfills the Scriptures
(John 19:7, 24).
For in Christ,
God was reconciling the whole world to Himself,
not counting their trespasses against them

(2 Cor. 5:19).

The Summary of Readings this Morning

Christ’s Resurrection Brings Us Life

In Adam all die.”
For we are all participants in the sin of Adam,
who rebelled against God in the garden and
brought the curse of death into the world.
But “in Christ shall all be made alive
(1 Cor. 15:22).
For He was faithful to His Father and destroyed death
on the holy tree.
Jesus, the Second Adam, now walks in the garden in the
cool of the day and reveals Himself to the daughter of Eve
(John 20:1–18).
The risen Christ brings not the curse of death
but the blessing of life, the resurrection of the body.
He leads us through the baptismal sea to new life
on the other side, conquering our mortal enemies in its depths
(Ex. 14:10—15:1).
In this way our Lord Jesus wipes away the tears from
all faces. For He has swallowed up death forever.
Let us therefore be glad and rejoice in His salvation
(Is. 25:6–9)!

The Summary of Readings this Morning

Christ’s Resurrection Means That We Will One Day Be Raised

Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed
(1 Cor. 5:7).
By the shed blood of Christ, the Lamb of God,
eternal death has passed over us. Now we pass with
Christ through death into life everlasting.
For Christ the crucified One is risen!
The stone has been rolled away from the tomb,
revealing that the tomb could not hold Him
(Mark 16:1–8).
Now our Redeemer lives eternally to save us from sin
and Satan and the grave, and we can live in the
sure hope of our own bodily resurrection with Christ.
After my skin has been thus destroyed, yet in my flesh I shall see God
(Job 19:26).
Feasting on the living Christ, who is our meat and drink
indeed, we boldly say:
O death, where is your victory?
O death, where is your sting? . . .
But thanks be to God,
who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ

(1 Cor. 15:54–55, 57).

The Summary of Readings Today


The Wounds of Christ Give Us Life 

For there are three that testify:
the Spirit and the water and the blood

(1 John 5:7).
These three point to Christ and flow from Christ.
Jesus shows His disciples His hands side,
from which blood and water flowed, saying
Peace be with you.”
He presents the wounds which turn our fear to
gladness and which restore us to the Father.
Jesus breathes on His disciples and says,
Receive the Holy Spirit
(John 20:23).
His breath, His words are Spirit and life.
They raise up our dry, dead bones and give us new
and everlasting life
(Ezek. 37:1–14).
Christ now gives His ministers to speak His forgiving,
Spirit-filled words to the penitent in His stead.
Our Lord continues to come to His people,
presenting His wounds to us in the Sacraments
of water and blood. He bids us to touch
His side at His table, to receive His risen body
and blood in true faith, that believing we
may have life in His name.
