Study & Share Sermon Blog

This is Pastor Jared's weekly sermon info and his weekly Study and Share devotional Bible study. Unless otherwise noted all sermons and studies are copyright Jared Stillions 2020-2023. The devotional Bible studies may be reproduced & shared for personal, non-sale use, provided this copyright notice is included. The studies are formatted two to a page to make sharing it easier. Weekly posts go live at 9:00 AM on Sundays. 

You can find his sermon podcast on the sermon-cast page. Check back each Sunday for new content. The podcast will soon be listed with major services. 
Why not put them on the same page? Due to limitations of our website builder.

By the way, here's the Lutheran Confessions, The Book of Concord, online and in the public domain. These writings, including Luther's Small & Large Catechisms are frequently referenced in these devotional studies. The Confessions are the historic doctrinal standard of the Lutheran Church and a faithful exposition of the Bible. You could say they are squared, leveled, and plumb by and to the Bible itself.

...#5 Many congregations pile up a hoard of things (physical, financial, & metaphorical) that can only be used for a (foggy) “special” purpose within the congregation (this does not include special Christmas/Easter decorations & the like) & finally end up not being used much at all. First, where do see this attitude at work in your congregation? Second, how can you honor the giver & the gifts, yet help find a new, life-giving, fruit-bearing purpose for them? See Matthew 6:19-21, 19:16-24, 20:28, 23:11-15; Luke 12:13-21; 1 Timothy 6:9-10
