Devotional Helps, October 26-November 1

From pg. 897 of the LSB Companion to the Hymns Volume 1 regarding hymn 676- “The hymn writer, at great length, demonstrates how the Holy Spirit transforms Christians. Through Holy Baptism, Holy Absolution, the Lord’s Supper, and the preaching of God’s Word, the Holy Spirit sustains them in their journey through this life. These Means of Grace distribute ‘the flood of Jesus’ blood’ (stanza 1), which cleanses Christians from their guilt and shame and simultaneously grants them the gift of eternal life as their possession in this present world and in the world to come. The poet balances an awareness of the individual Christian’s suffering in this life with the recognition that Christ’s atoning work translates the Christian to the hope and promise of heaven.”

Almighty and everlasting God, You knit together Your faithful people of all times and places into one holy communion, the mystical body of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Grant us so to follow Your blessed saints in all virtuous and godly living that, together with them, we may come to the unspeakable joys You have prepared for those who love You; through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
