This Week at St. Paul's

For Next Sunday: Revelation 7:9−17; 1 John 3:1−3; Matthew 5:1−12; Psalm 149

October 26 “There is no such thing in God’s economy as an ‘adopted child,’ only a child who was adopted into the family. ‘Adopted’ defines how you came into the household, but it doesn’t define you as some other sort of family member. In the book of Romans, Paul defines all Christians, both Jew and Gentile, as having received a common ‘Spirit of adoption’ (Romans 8:15; 9:4).” Dr. Russell D. Moore – A “Life Quote” from Lutherans For Life • www.lutheransforlife.org
