Thanks for visiting. We’re excited about what we can offer both members of Pilot Knob Lutheran and the surrounding community.

Daily Devotions

“Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.” – James 2:17 

One of the most simple actions we can take as Christians in the personal strengthening of our faith is to do daily devotions. And today, with the advent of the internet, receiving your daily dose of law and gospel has never been easier. Discover God’s grace through a multitude of faith-enriching devotionals.

Encourage One Another

The season of the church year is the End Times. Prior to advent the focus is on the coming of the Messiah – the second and last time. There is a lot of talk about how the current Israeli war and newspaper headlines are reflecting the fulfillment of end time prophecy. We need to get our head out of current events that try to establish a biblical time-line. Paul reminds believers to encourage one another about the promise of Jesus’ return, not trying to map it out.

What we think and tell ourselves matter.

Anxiety is distress or uneasiness in our minds due to worry over a possible misfortune. It makes our heart race, palms sweat, and raises our blood pressure.

To say we are living in turbulent and uncertain times is an understatement. The eyes of the world are fixated on Israel’s war for survival against the satanic attack of Hamas and all its allies. We wonder if this will precipitate World War III, what will the United States, or should I say, the Divided States, do and so on. Also, on the minds of some people is whether this war leads to the “final war of Armageddon” spoken of in Revelation and elsewhere.
