Rev. Dustin Beck, pastor at Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Warda, TX, joins host Rev. Timothy Appel for Sharathon 2021 to study how God makes use of water to deliver His people.
Water is present in the Scriptures all the way from Genesis 1 to Revelation 22. Throughout the Old Testament, water is often God’s chosen means both for bringing His judgment upon sin and for saving His people by grace through faith. Noah and his family in the ark, the people of Israel at the Red Sea, and Naaman in the Jordan River all provide evidence of God’s deliverance through water. This culminates in Jesus, who was baptized in the Jordan River in the place of sinners and who gives living water that quenches eternally. Those who are washed in the water and Word of Holy Baptism are connected to Jesus’ saving work and so are brought into eternity with Him, where the river of life flows forever.

Sharper Iron, hosted by Rev. Timothy Appel, looks at the text of Holy Scripture both in its broad context and its narrow detail, all for the sake of proclaiming Christ crucified and risen for sinners. Two pastors engage with God’s Word to sharpen not only their own faith and knowledge, but the faith and knowledge of all who listen.
