What Servants Do

The Post-Communion Canticles found in the Lutheran Service Book reflect not only the heart of God, the central focus of the Scriptures, and the core teaching of the Lutheran Confessions, but they also capture our identity during this Advent season and in the partnership we call the Texas District. In Simeon’s song, the “Nunc Dimittis,” we hear: “Lord, now You let Your servant go in peace.” Simeon gets it. He understood what Luther declared: “We are beggars, that is true.” Throughout the ages, the grace of God in Jesus Christ crucified and risen has put us in our place—in the best way possible. We broken and rebellious sinners are placed on the receiving end of the gift of forgiveness
