LHM – October 2018 Message

Christians Like to Build

If you have an expertise in a special field, you may have been asked to help with a project.  It may have been in the family garage, as youngsters, we learn how to “build something”.  Most of those projects have not survived the test of time, but be assured the memories, the skills and lessons did.  Thus, when a person in need asked or when your name was suggested, you were capable of offering input and help.  Christians like to build; we build church buildings, schools, homeless shelters, and playgrounds.  Together we build retirement homes, seminary campuses, hospitals and universities.  Some of these things, we build to last and then some serve a purpose and then go away.  We tend to focus on these projects because we can see in brick and mortar what has been accomplished and gain satisfaction for a job well done.

The Lutheran Laymen’s League provided the beginnings of the Lutheran Hour Ministries.  For more than 100 years, the Lutheran Hour Ministries has successfully shared God’s Word with countless individuals and innumerable crowds from local towns to around the world.  From private witnessing to support of social media, our support of the Good News, our involvement to further the cause of Christ, is just as important as when the 12 apostles took up the challenge.  We are among the “volunteered” for the present and the future.

Together, through the International Lutheran Laymen’s League, Lutheran Hour Ministries are building something really big and beautiful.  It is made of the finest materials, and we are promised by God Himself that it will stand the test of time for future generations and beyond.  What we are building is not a building and our tools cannot be found in the family garage.  God has given us all the tools, skills, designs and resources to build it.  We are calling what we are building, “SENT” because this particular name reminds us that each and every one of us has been SENT to build something that God has prepared and ordained.

SENT is a gathering of God’s people – called, equipped, and SENT, working together.
