Today's Readings

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.

The Good Shepherd Cares for His Sheep

Our Lord Jesus is the Good Shepherd
(John 10:11–16).
He is not like the hireling,
who cares nothing for the sheep and only for himself,
who flees when he sees the wolf coming.
Rather, Jesus is the Good Shepherd
who seeks out His scattered sheep to deliver them
(Ezek. 34:11–16).
He gathers them and feeds them in rich pasture.
He binds up the broken and strengthens the sick.
He lays down His life for wandering and wayward sheep.
On the cross,
Christ bore in His body the attacks of
the predators of sin and death and
the devil for you that you might be saved.
He now lives to restore your soul in the still waters of baptism,
to lead you in the paths of righteousness by the voice of His Gospel, to prepare the table of His holy supper before you,
that you may dwell in the house of the Lord forever
(Psalm 23).
For you were straying like sheep,
but have now returned to the
Shepherd and Overseer of your souls

(1 Peter 2:25).

Today's Readings

Those Who Wait on the Lord Shall Rejoice

The people of God are pilgrims and sojourners in this world,
looking ahead to a destination yet to come
(1 Peter 2:11–20).
Though we are now children of God,
the fullness of what we shall be has not yet been revealed
(1 John 3:1–3).
We are those who wait on the Lord.
The Lord is good to those who wait for him,
to the soul who seeks him

(Lam. 3:25).
Jesus tells us that the wait is just a little while.
A little while, and you will see me no longer;
and again a little while, and you will see me

(John 16:16).
Though you must experience sorrow for a time,
though you must live as strangers
in a world that is at enmity with Christ,
yet your sorrow will be turned to joy when He returns.
But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength
(Is. 40:31).
The little while of weeping shall be replaced with an eternity of
rejoicing in the presence of Christ the crucified and risen Savior.
And no one will take your joy from you
(John 16:22).

Today's Readings

Jesus Promises to Send His Holy Spirit, the Helper

Though Jesus has departed from us visibly to the right hand
of the Father who sent Him,
yet this is to our advantage.
For Jesus—who is Lord over all creation,
who intercedes for us before the Father,
who is preparing a place for us in heaven—has sent the Helper,
the Spirit of Truth
(John 16:5–15).
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of lights

through Jesus Christ
(James 1:17).
The Holy Spirit helps us by taking what is Christ’s
and declaring it to us.
In the Word of truth,
the Spirit works repentance and delivers
to us the forgiveness of sins,
the righteousness of Christ,
and victory over the devil.
For the ruler of this world is judged and defeated by the cross. Through the ministry of the Holy Spirit,
we have been brought forth to new life
in Him who is the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. Confident of our resurrection with Christ we confess,
Behold, God is my salvation;
I will trust, and will not be afraid

(Is. 12:2).

Today's Readings

The Father Answers Our Prayers Because of Jesus

Truly, truly,
I say to you,
whatever you ask of the Father in my name,
he will give it to you

(John 16:23).
To pray in Jesus’ name is to pray as one who has been baptized.
For it is in the water that He put His name upon you,
claiming you as His own,
making you a son of God with access to the Father.
By His incarnation and crucifixion,
our Lord Jesus broke through the barrier of sin
which separated us from God,
opening a portal to the Father.
To pray in Jesus’ name is to pray with faith in Him as the one Mediator between God and men,
who gave Himself a ransom for all
(1 Tim. 2:1–6).
Like Moses in the wilderness,
Jesus is our go-between
and intercessor before the throne of heaven.
He was lifted up for us on the cross that we might
be saved and restored to fellowship with the Father
(Num. 21:4–9).
Looking into this perfect teaching of liberty
(James 1:22–27)
we pray with boldness and confidence as dear children of God.

Today's Readings


Jesus Is Ascended, but Not Absent

On the fortieth day after His resurrection,
our Lord ascended to the right hand of the Father.
But although Jesus is hidden from your eyes,
He is not absent from you.
For He now fills all things in heaven and on earth.
He continues
to do and to teach
(Acts 1:1),
preaching repentance and
forgiveness of sins through those sent in His name
(Mark 16:14–20; Luke 24:44–53),
giving you His true body and blood in the Supper.
Jesus is your great Elijah who pours out on you a
double portion of His Spirit in the Word and the Sacraments
(2 Kings 2:5–15).
He is Lord over all things for the sake of the Church.
He whom heaven cannot contain has raised your human
nature to share fully in the glory of God.
You who believe and are baptized into Christ’s body are already sitting in the heavenly places;
for you are in Him who is at the Father’s right hand.
When He comes again in the clouds on the Last Day,
you also will appear with Him in glory.

Today's Readings

The Spirit of Truth Bears Witness to Jesus

The Spirit of Truth bears witness to Jesus,
who is the truth. But the world does not receive the truth.
It loves its own and hates those who are of the truth.
Just as Jesus was scorned,
so is His Church.
The hour is coming when whoever kills you
will think he is offering service to God

(John 16:2).
Yet it is by Jesus’ suffering and death that we are saved.
Therefore we rejoice to share in His sufferings,
that we may also share in His resurrection glory
(1 Pet. 4:7–14).
Through the ministry of the Spirit of Truth,
we are cleansed from the deceit of our idols
and given a new heart and a new spirit,
the heart and Spirit of Christ
(Ezek. 36:22–28).
He now works in us fervent,
self-giving love for one another,
love which covers a multitude of sins,
that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ.
To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever.
Amen

(1 Pet. 4:11).
