Notes from Pastor Cole

Warmest New Year Greetings! Welcome to our website~  

CHRIST JESUS IS "Emmanual" -  

"GOD WITH US" ~ come down from heaven! 

During this Epiphany Season -the people of Redeemer "Rejoice!" by joining in prayer - that God would continue to BE WITH US - as we navigate the troubles of this mortal life. God's restoration and peace came to us long ago, yet we yearn for more light - even as we remember that He sent down a Savior, born of a virgin, to BE our Light and The Prince of Peace here in this world of trouble and woe. We gather in His name at Redeemer!  

Though we have returned to in-person worship, we are also still providing distance based worship materials and video services for those still "sheltering in" and staying "Safer-at-Home" all these long months. These are being provided through the internet, and print resources. However and Wherever - we gather to worship together . Whichever way you chose to "come and worship" ~ PLEASE join us for prayer and praise! If YOU are "Staying-Safer at Home" - and desire us to contact you for prayer, or to share some spiritual resources - PLEASE contact us! You can reach us by email at: [ redeemerpensacola@yahoo.com  or  pastorcole@ymail.com ]

Please also consider joining us in worship again, as we ARE safely gathering on Sundays {8 & 10:30am}.   

Though some may still desire to be at a distance physically - for the sake of health and safety, let us pray that we may soon come together again in "faith, hope, and love" ~ to receive God's rich blessings! We ARE here - in and near God's house, being "Prayerful and Careful" as we celebrate the Hope and Joy that has come to us! 

The Peace of our Lord and God be with you - all year through...

In the Favor of our Savior and Redeemer ~   

Pastor Cole 

Martin Luther's Seal - Expressive of His Theology

The Seal of Martin Luther was designed by Martin Luther himself.  He explained his design in the following words:

     The first thing expressed in my seal is a cross, black, within the heart, to put me in mind that faith in Christ crucified saves us.  "For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness."

     Now, although the cross is black, mortified, and intended to cause pain, it does not change the color of the heart, does not destroy nature -- i.e., does not kill, but keeps alive.  "For the just shall live by faith," -- by faith in the Savior.

     But this heart is fixed upon the center of a white rose, to show that faith causes joy, consolation and peace.  The rose is white, not red, because white is the ideal color of all angels and blessed spirits.

     This rose, moreover, is fixed in a sky-colored ground, to denote that such joy of faith in the spirit is but an earnest beginning of heavenly joy to come, as anticipated and held by hope, though not yet revealed.

     And around this ground base is a golden ring, to signify that such bliss in heaven is endless, and more precious than all joys and treasures, since gold is the best and most precious metal.  Christ, our dear Lord, He will give grace unto eternal life.

Amen
