Reverend John A. Fale, Executive Director of the LCMS Office of International Mission, preached this homily in the International Center Chapel August 5, 2016
In his Maundy Thursday sermon given at the Synod’s International Center Chapel Service March 24, LCMS Chaplain William Weedon helps us appreciate Christ’s sacrifice, His body and blood, and the forgiveness that Jesus aches to give us.
What sort of King is this? Who would set aside the riches of His heavenly Kingdom to step into my poverty… who set aside his royal diadem for a crown of thorns, who hung naked from a tree to robe me in His righteousness, who shed His blood and poured Himself out that every drop would be a payment for my sins… What sort of King is this? He is the king of mercy!
