The Gospel for today tells the story of a man quite pleased with his own accomplishments. In response, God requires his life and all of his hard work means nothing. The Christian way of living is to know who God is as we serve our neighbor. When we acknowledge who God is, we are drawn away from our own corruption and more fully into what we are supposed to be. This weekend in worship, Pastor Schultz preaches on what God has done for us in Jesus and what the Christian does in response.
