"Rejoice that your names are written in heaven."
Jesus said this to the 72 disciples that he had sent out to prepare for his coming. Jesus had given them great power, power that even caused the demons to submit to them. however Jesus told them not to rejoice in these amazing facts, but rather to rejoice that their names were written in heaven. Jesus also told them the the Kingdom of God had come to them. Jesus makes it clear the Kingdom of God has come to you. Through the Gospel (the good news of Christ's work) the Kingdom of God is brought to us through God's Word. In Christ we have forgiveness of sins and we stand at peace with the true God! It is not something you can accomplish by your own merit. However, as you have heard of Jesus sacrifice for you, his love, the Holy Spirit works to give you faith in these certain promises of God. Through this faith we are assured that the Kingdom of God has come to us! We are assured that our names are written in heaven! We are assured of eternal life!
This gives us reason to REJOICE!
If you have questions about this or you are just not certain of these facts, please email us or give us a call! We would love to help you grow in a closer relationship with your Savior, Jesus Christ. Your friends at St. Peter's.

Christ is the Key to Eternal Life!
What comfort we have that Christ is still in control and that our eternal security is taken care of. He has sent the Holy Spirit who connects us through God's powerful means of grace, the Gospel in Word and Sacrament, to Christ's salvation by faith. The Holy Spirit is the one who gives faith to believe. Through his connecting us to Christ we have that absolute certainty of eternal life. How precious, how amazing!
Jesus went to the cross to take on our sin and to suffer the wrath and anger of a holy God. But the Lord assures us that this was his plan from the beginning. In Jesus' work, we are assured that we stand righteous, holy, without sin and qualified for heaven and living with a holy God. Here are some of the passages that give me comfort: (press the passage to pull up a new window with the passage in its context).
You are invited to join us for worship. The Lord God has freely given us eternal life through Jesus Christ. Let us worship Him!
