We humans come in a wide array of shapes, sizes, and colors. We are a magnificent mingling of all sorts of languages, cultures, and world views. Yet despite all of our differences, there are two things we share in common.

1. We are all sinners in desperate need of a Savior – whether you’re a single mom begging on a street corner or a retired astronaut; whether you speak English, Quechua, Spanish, or all three…

…there is no distinction. [We] ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

GOD’S LAW places each of us into the same category – poor, miserable sinners guilty of daily breaking His commandments in thought, word, and deed.

2. Jesus died to save us sinners – Apart from the language we speak, the amount of money we make, or the color of our skin; because of His deep, deep love for us, God entered this broken, divided world in order to do what we are ALL incapable of accomplishing ourselves – He paid the price in full for our sin!

And [all] are justified by His grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith… (Romans 3)

GOD’S GOSPEL offers free forgiveness, life, and salvation on account of Christ’s suffering and death to EVERYONE!!!

The purpose of this blog is to celebrate that God’s Law & Gospel are for every tribe, nation, and tongue.

In Christ there is no east or west,

In Him no south or north,

But one great fellowship of love

Throughout the whole wide earth.

With God there is no tribe or race;

In Him we all are one.

He loves us as His children through

Our faith in His dear Son.

(Lutheran Service Book, 653)
