                   What's it all about?

 "The big question is 'How do you know that you're saved?'  How do you know that God loves you?  Any time we start to answer that question with ourselves, "I did, I asked, I ..." we're in a bad spot.  It's all about the death and resurrection of Jesus.  Jesus binds us to Himself in baptism; Jesus washes us with His blood in the Lord's Supper.  Jesus died and rose from the dead, and through His Word and Sacrament we are promised to rise from the dead also, in the body, to an eternal life with Him."

- Pastor Linnell
