Proper 10 (Year B)

Amos was herding sheep when the Lord chose him to prophesy King Jereboam’s death and Israel’s exile. The prophet was hated and threatened for this message. John the Baptist also suffered for his faithful preaching of repentance; King Herod imprisoned and then executed John out of pride and fear. But for John and us, Jesus destroyed death itself. Through baptism into Christ, we are “sealed with the promised Holy Spirit” that we may endure in proclaiming the good news and receive salvation from the fetters of death.

Proper 07 (Year B)

Job’s questions and “words without knowledge” are nothing next to God’s powerful Word, which calms the fiercest storm. This same Word created the wind and the waves, fixed their limits and tells creation, “here shall your proud waves be stayed.” We are humbled by God's might, but rest assured that He will not permit the chaos of this fallen world to bring us to despair. God speaks peace to us, bestowing on us the great calm of His New Creation. “Now is the favorable time; behold, now is the day of salvation”!

Proper 08 (Year B)

The Lord is faithful; His steadfast love never ceases and His compassions never fail. Like the woman who had been bleeding for twelve years and the ruler with a dying daughter, we look to Jesus. They waited on His mercy, and each received Jesus’ saving help. At the right time, the woman was healed and the little girl raised. Such is the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, who humbled Himself, even to death, “so that you by his poverty might become rich” in life everlasting.

Proper 09 (Year B)

Jesus, like the prophets before Him, was called by the Spirit of the Lord to preach the Law and Gospel. While many were amazed at what Jesus said and did, many others took offense, and their offense would bring Jesus to the cross. Ironically, the cross is the source of Jesus’ authority! It is in that authority that we, like the prophets and disciples of old, are sent out to preach repentance, drive out demons and heal the sick. We, like Paul, boast in the cross and in our weaknesses, knowing that the power of Christ “is made perfect in weakness.

Proper 06 (Year B)

Jesus’ parables convey the mysteries of the Kingdom of God to those able to hear by faith. Jesus scatters seed on the ground, which sprouts and grows. God promised that the young and tender twig would become a noble cedar. Indeed, Christ’s cross, the Tree of Life, brings us together as branches, as fruit and as the birds that dwell safely in its cover. In faith we live for God in Christ, who for our sake died and was raised. In His resurrected body we have “a building from God … eternal in the heavens.
