Scripture of the Day

Listen, you heavens, and I will speak; hear, you earth, the words of my mouth.

2 Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew,
like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants.

3 I will proclaim the name of the Lord. Oh, praise the greatness of our God!

4 He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just.
A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he.

5 They are corrupt and not his children;
    to their shame they are a warped and crooked generation.

6 Is this the way you repay the Lord, you foolish and unwise people?
Is he not your Father, your Creator, who made you and formed you?

7 Remember the days of old; consider the generations long past.
Ask your father and he will tell you, your elders, and they will explain to you.

8 When the Most High gave the nations their inheritance,
    when he divided all mankind,
he set up boundaries for the peoples according to the number of the sons of Israel.

9 For the Lord’s portion is his people, Jacob his allotted inheritance.

10 In a desert land he found him, in a barren and howling waste.
He shielded him and cared for him; he guarded him as the apple of his eye,

11 like an eagle that stirs up its nest and hovers over its young,
that spreads its wings to catch them and carries them aloft.

12 The Lord alone led him; no foreign god was with him.

-- Deuteronomy 32:1-12

The mission of Ascension Lutheran Church is to glorify God and bring people to a full personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ
