Christie, Aaron L.

The life of every Christian is to be living sacrifice, out of worship to a good and gracious God. But as Christians gather for public worship in church, what is the point of maintaining Lutheran liturgy? Is it meant to feed and nourish members of a congregation, or is it a tool to be used for evangelizing unbelievers? The answer is both. Pastor Christie offers a refreshing reminder that Lutheran liturgy is centered on the means of grace, through which the gospel message of salvation in Christ is preached. Lutheran liturgy strengthens the faith of believers as they are reassured of Christ’s love, and also establishes a first-time contact between the Holy Spirit and unbelieving hearts.
