So looking forward to . . .

Divine Service this morning, during which we will observe the Festival of St. Michael and All Angels and also witness the miraculous work of our Lord, as He washes the sins away from Abigail, gifts her with the Holy Spirit and faith, dons her in the beautiful white robe of His holiness and righteousness, and tells the devil to scram, claiming this beloved child as His own in the Sacrament of Holy Baptism.  What a powerful object lesson to behold as we listen to our Lord tell us in the Holy Gospel (Matt. 18:1-11):  "Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven."

Let Your holy angel be with me, that the evil foe may have no power over me.  Amen.
