Lutherans for Life… October 17 “The things that have come to pass in Jesus come from His self-giving. He becomes a fetus in Mary’s womb; He becomes a crying infant, cold and hungry; He becomes a desert wanderer, starving and tormented by demons; He becomes the subject of slander and spitting; He is whipped and pierced; He is laid in the tomb. Having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end. That’s where life is found: in the crucified Jesus.” Rev. Christopher Esget, Immanuel Lutheran Church, Alexandria, Virginia.
