1.14 | Divine Service
WELCOME! The Season of Epiphany shines forth the appearing and revealing of Jesus Christ as the Savior. He is Savior of Jew and Gentile alike. Last week in the Baptism of Our Lord, Christians were reminded that the reason Jesus is True Man and True God is so Jesus may stand with and in the place of sinners. The baptized Christ was proclaimed to us by the Father as His own beloved Son. Today, the Epiphany season once again calls us to focus on the revealing of Jesus. The same Lord who is revealed as standing before and speaking to young Samuel in the Gospel speaks to Nathaniel as the omniscient Savior who sees from afar. The Psalm today likewise assures that the Father knows His people in all circumstances. The collect for this day recognizes that God "governs all things in heaven and on earth." From scorned Nazareth even to the depths of Sheol, God is revealed to His people for His saving work in Jesus. Happy New Year!
