Proper 13 (Year B)

After rescuing Israel from bondage in Egypt, the Lord took His people under His wing, feeding them and making Himself known among them. Christ rescued us from the bondage of sin, and we are nourished by the true bread from heaven, the Son who “comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” This is food that “endures to eternal life,” that relieves all hunger and thirst. We partake in Jesus’ body and blood and are bound together in one hope, “one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all.

Proper 12 (Year B)

Having spared Noah and his family, the Lord promised that the earth would never again be destroyed in a flood. He sealed this covenant with a rainbow. Although creation suffers under the curse of sin, the Lord preserves and orders creation for the benefit of His Church. All of creation is redeemed and sanctified by the incarnate Son of God. He is with us, to calm our fears and to save us from the storm. His own flesh and blood are the Covenant by which you are “strengthened with power through His Spirit in your inner being.

Proper 11 (Year B)

Jeremiah prophesies that the Lord will rebuke and remove those who are scattering His flock. God promises to bring His sheep together under the Good Shepherd, the king who will reign in righteousness and wisdom. Mark describes Jesus as having compassion on the crowd following Him, who were like “sheep without a shepherd.” He abundantly provides for His flock so that everyone is fully satisfied in body and soul. Though we were lost in sin, through Christ we are “fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God.

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 09 (Year B)

In the footsteps of prophets like Ezekiel, whom the Spirit sent to speak an unpopular Word to rebellious Israel, the Lord Jesus went about teaching and preaching, and many took offense at Him. The offense culminates in His cross, which is, ironically, the heart and center of His ministry. It is by the authority of His cross that those He sends preach repentance. Thus, the apostle Paul boasts in the cross of Christ and in his own weaknesses, knowing that God’s grace is sufficient and that the power of Christ “is made perfect in weakness.
