Why does Jesus do this? Why does Jesus come to his disciples to deputize them and send them out? Isn’t it enough that Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead? Isn’t that what makes us good with God? Why do these 10 men in the text get the authority to forgive sins?  Read More

O Lord, God our Father in Heaven, look with mercy on us! We are so often dragged away into our vices and sin which cause us great shame and pain. It is almost impossible to endure, and we feel compelled to hide our faces from before you in hopes that you may not look at us or our shame.  Read More
