Sermons by Rev. Michael Schuermann

Sermo Dei: Invocavit (Lent 1), A.D. 2019

We can’t see all these things going on, for the most part, but they are really happening. We don’t see these things as they’re pictured in Revelation, but we certainly can feel them. We are tempted by the devil, the world, and our sinful flesh. We are tempted and we sometimes give in. But today’s Gospel story of our Lord Jesus Christ’s temptation in the wilderness by the devil encourages us. In Jesus, the temptations of the devil are overcome.

Sermo Dei: Saint Nicholas, Bishop, A.D. 2017

Note: This is the sermon for Advent Midweek 1, 2017 Text: 2 Corinthians 1:3-7 For these three midweek Advent services, we’ll be considering the commemorations of three saints of God – a brother and two sisters in Christ – who now rest from their labors but have left us notable examples of the faithful Christian life.…

Sermo Dei: Reformation 500, A.D. 2017

The thing to celebrate about the Reformation is that Luther rediscovered, and he and his fellow workers reintroduced through writing, preaching, and teaching, the emancipating fact that Jesus doesn’t leave you in your bondage to sin. Jesus doesn’t leave you despairing that you’re lost forever. Jesus doesn’t leave you thinking that you have to make amends with God.

Sermo Dei: Rorate coeli (Advent 4), A.D. 2016

So even as we pray this prayer, we know that the Lord has already answered it for us. By His power and might He has conquered death and the grave. He has helped us by dying for us. He has poured His Holy Spirit into our hearts so that we would believe that our sins are forgiven and therefore receive the promised eternal life. And He gave all that to you in the Font.

Sermo Dei: The Feast of the Resurrection, A.D. 2015

The surprise of Easter is that Jesus doesn’t have to make a big show of it. He just tells us how things are. But what those things are, that is amazing. The death and resurrection of Jesus, now your very own: given in plain words spoken to each other; given in plain words spoken while water is poured; given in plains words spoken over bread and wine that are then consumed by Christ’s Church.
