Rev. Dr. Brian Kachelemeier, Redeemer Lutheran Church, Las Alamos, NM joins Rev. Brady Finnern to introduce our new study of Ecclesiastes.
Ecclesiastes is a book of wisdom. Yet, as Christians wisdom is found in the fear of God in Christ. Wisdom is not a pursuit of information or thoughts, all of that is vanity. It is difficult to hear that wealth, the pursuit of wisdom, work, and intelligence is meaningless. Yet, when we understand that wisdom comes from Christ, we do not need to wonder if we have wisdom, but we live in freedom with His blessed words to live holy lives. “Lord God, grant us the wisdom of faith in Christ. We thank You that Christ has done everything for us and we ask that we would believe in this wisdom and live in wise freedom as His beloved children. Lord help us. Amen”
Thy Strong Word reveals the light of our salvation in Christ through study of God’s Word, breaking our darkness with His redeeming light. Each weekday, two pastors fix our eyes on Jesus by considering Holy Scripture, verse by verse, in order to be strengthened in the Word and be equipped to faithfully serve in our daily vocations.
Thy Strong Word is hosted by Rev. Brady Finnern, pastor of Messiah Lutheran Church in Sartell, MN, and graciously underwritten by the Lutheran Heritage Foundation.
