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

In His Baptism, Jesus Takes His Place with Sinners

Our Lord Jesus is baptized
to fulfill all righteousness
(Matt. 3:13–17).
He partakes of a baptism for sinners in order that
He might be our substitute and bear the judgment we deserve.
In the water, Jesus trades places with us.
Our sin becomes His sin.
His righteousness becomes our righteousness.
Our glory, therefore, is in
Christ Jesus, who became to us . . . righteousness and sanctification and redemption
(1 Cor. 1:26–31).
Jesus is the “chosen” One sent from the Father
to release us from the prison house of sin and death
(Is. 42:1–7).
Baptized into Christ, we also become the chosen ones,
beloved of the Father. We cross the Jordan with Jesus
(Joshua 3)
through death into the promised land of new life with God.

The Summary of Readings Today

Jesus’ First Miracle Reveals God’s Glory

The coming of the Messianic kingdom means
the restoration of creation.
The sign of this restoration is that
the mountains shall drip sweet wine
(Amos 9:11–15).
When the elements of a fallen creation fail
and run short at a wedding feast,
our Lord Jesus steps in to restore creation and
miraculously changes water into an abundance of the very best wine
(John 2:1–11).
With this sign, Christ manifests His glory.
The “back” of God
(Ex. 33:12–23)
is revealed to those who believe.
The hour will come when Jesus will again manifest His glory by taking creation’s curse into His own body to release us from its power.
The Bridegroom will give His life for the Bride
(Eph. 5:22–32),
and from His side will flow water and blood,
the holy sacraments by which she is cleansed and made one with Him. Through this sacrificial love of Christ we are enabled to
love one another with brotherly affection . . .”
and to
outdo one another in showing honor
(Rom. 12:6–16).

The Summary of Readings Today

Jesus Came for Gentiles, Too

The Gospel of Christ is the power of God to salvation
for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Gentile
(Rom. 1:8–17).
Even in the Old Testament,
the Gentiles were beneficiaries of God’s saving power.
Though unimpressed at first with the Word of God,
a Syrian commander is persuaded to receive that Word,
and in the water he is cleansed and
brought to faith in the God of Israel
(2 Kings 5:1–15a).
Evil is overcome by good
(Rom 12:16–21).
So also in the New Testament,
a Roman centurion demonstrates great and humble faith in the Lord (Matt. 8:1–13).
All he needs is the Word of Christ,
for he trusts that Jesus’
Word of healing has authority to accomplish what it says.
And indeed it does.
The centurion’s faith is praised by our Lord above that of any Israelite. For the last shall be first,
and the first last. Apart from faith in Christ,
there is no salvation
—not even for a Jew—
but only weeping and gnashing of teeth.

The Summary of Readings Today

Jesus Is Lord of All Creation

In Jonah we see ourselves.
For Jonah fled from the presence of the Lord
(Jonah 1:1–17)
even as we sinners turn our backs on God and go our own way.
This brings the storm of God’s judgment.
But in Jonah we also see Christ.
For even as he was in the great fish for three days and three nights,
so also Christ Jesus was buried in the depths of death for
us and raised on the third day.
The Lord of creation, who rules over the wind and the wave
(Matt. 8:23–27),
saved us from the fury of divine wrath
by taking the judgment in His own body.
His love is the fulfillment of the Law
(Rom. 13:8–10).
Though our faith be weak in the face of peril,
yet we are kept in safety on the ship of the Church;
for the Son of God is with us.
Though the whole creation groans with us under the curse,
yet by Jesus’ speaking, there is a great calm.
For we know that our present sufferings are
not worthy to be compared with the glory to be revealed in us
(Rom. 8:18–23).

The Summary of Readings Today

The Righteous Will Shine Like the Sun 

The enemy sowed tares among the Son of Man’s good wheat.
Thus, the sons of the wicked one and
the sons of the kingdom coexist in the field of the world
(Matt. 13:24–30, 36–43).
In order that His own might not be uprooted and destroyed,
the Lord has delayed the judgment
of the wicked until the time of harvest.
Even for the sake of ten righteous all of Sodom
would have been spared
(Gen. 18:20–33).
But in the end, the harvest will come.
On the Last Day,
the angels will separate out the tares from the wheat.
The wicked will be cast into the furnace of fire,
but the righteous in Christ will shine forth
as the sun in the kingdom of their Father.
Therefore, those in whom the word of Christ dwells richly
(Col. 3:12–17)
need not fret because of evildoers.
For their salvation is from the Lord;
He is their strength in time of trouble (Introit).
