COMMENTARY: Worship on the Web


Grace and peace of God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ be with you, your loved ones, and all always.

Did you ever wonder; ask the question, “Does God love me?”

The short answer. Yes.

The real question is do you know how much?

God himself tells us in his infallible and inerrant Word. In the scriptures, The Holy Bible. Most of us are familiar with the well-publicized verse from God’s Holy Bible, John 3:16. In this verse God’s, your Heavenly Father’s compassionate love for you is summarized.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

Maybe you have not ever heard the Lord’s love for you in this way.

Or perhaps once, a long while ago, you were assured by and “felt” God’s love for you in this verse. But life is busy in this fallen world.

It distracts us with false promises of “success” and “wealth.”

This world is full of misunderstandings, illness and undeserved maledictions, broken hearts and hurts, injustice, false accusations, and horrible trials that challenge us beyond our capabilities to cope. It makes us doubt.

To doubt God’s very existence let alone that he cares about us.

These elements of the world we live in are Satan’s original lie.

Lucifer’s lie to Adam and Eve that continues to this very day.

Grace Lutheran Church wants to walk with you in your journey to the path of Hope. You are invited to join us; to hear the living God’s word as he expresses his unmatchable love for you.

As he speaks of his promise to be with you always. Forever. Through eternity.

Grace Lutheran Church offers worship opportunities Sunday mornings at 9 and 11 a.m.

God knows his incredible love tends to be hard to understand.

He provides exactly what this means for you and your loved ones through closer and deeper looks into his faithfulness.

These Christ-centered, Bible-based fellowship times are available to all ages and are presented weekly at Grace Lutheran Church, Sundays at 10:30 a.m., and for teens and young adults at noon, and Wednesday mornings at 9 a.m.

For your convenience, please contact the church office at 530-273-7043 for information about fellowship times in the Bible offered in homes of disciples of The Christ.

Access to God’s message of his love for you is presented in “The Lutheran Hour” program broadcast every Sunday on KNCO Radio at 7:30 a.m. and is available anytime on the Web at http://www.lutheranhour.org/.

The peace of the Lord be with you, your loved ones, and all always,

The Rev. John-Paul Meyer is interim pastor at Grace Lutheran Church,1979 Ridge Road, Grass Valley. For more information, call 530-273-7043, or visit http://gracelutherangv.org/.
