LCMS U at OU is a campus ministry of Trinity Lutheran Church (LCMS) in Norman, Oklahoma. The church is located at the intersection of Classen Blvd. & Alameda with Divine Service at 8:00 and 10:30am, with Bible Study at 9:15 am on Sundays. We welcome and encourage you to join us in worship on Sunday mornings, especially if you are unable to attend the Tuesday night meetings.
From the Vicar
I have been reflecting on the Gospel of Matthew as I go through it with my college Bible study group. It has struck me how much the Gospel deals with the immediacy of heaven. Jesus, shortly after His battle with the devil in the wilderness, comes back and proclaims, “The kingdom of heaven is at hand.” As we read throughout the Gospel, we begin to understand that Jesus is, himself, the kingdom of heaven. Jesus is teaching us that heaven has met earth in Him. He went out to the poor, those who mourn, and the lonely. He went through towns and villages, “proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness” (Matt 9:35).
The Gospel of Matthew teaches us that our Lord enters His creation, heals our brokenness, and promises that we are not alone. Jesus assures us that no matter how broken everything seems to be, “the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Heaven has met earth in Christ, and it continues to meet us in the Divine Service where Christ comes to us and gives us Himself in Word and Sacrament. His gift of grace brings heaven to us and works to restore what is broken, and on the last day, He will make all things new. And we will live with Him in His kingdom forever.
Let us pray: “Gracious God, our heavenly Father, Your mercy is with us all our days. Be our strength and support amid the wearisome changes of this world, and at life’s end grant us Your promised salvation; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.”
