Now Pastor John, you've given me a hearty chuckle... I just finished a difficult lawn mow for our church in Concrete (push law mow uphill) and I told a friend that it must be my penance for past sins... Does this mean I'm absolved from lawn mowing?

I was fortunate to be able to watch Livestream this morning but I've been thinking about the Message all day because I was raised Roman Catholic. Yes, we went to Confession once a week (each Saturday before Sunday's Mass) and we also said our prayers each night before bedtime. A big difference is that as an individual we each were given the responsibility for our own penance in hopes of forgiveness from God (we didn't bless each other nor were we taught that God forgives us our sins just because he loves us). I often fell asleep saying my Rosary, alone. What I appreciate about your message Pastor John, is that you give us an interpretation of Christ's lessons…

Janis, you put your finger on exactly the right place! Being "given the responsibility for our own penance in hopes of forgiveness from God" is what many (maybe even most, sadly) Christians think the Gospel is about. But this is no different from what the priests say to Judas Iscariot after he confesses his sin of betraying Jesus: "What is that to us? See to it yourself." (Matthew 27:4) Luther's insight was that the Gospel is not our responsibility at all, but only God's, and that means it is given as a promise, not a command, and that we can trust it completely, because it in no way relies on us.


These are the insights that led Luther to change…
