Dear Trinity Families,
Here is your WELS Devotion
Then they asked him, “What must we do to do the works God requires?” Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.”
Bread That Will Always Satisfy
When Jesus promised the crowd a bread that would always satisfy and never spoil—they asked him a very natural question. “What must we do to get it?” We all ask what must I do in many categories of our lives.
What must I do to live a long and healthy life?
What must I do to have a good marriage?
What must I do to make sure my children turn out well?
What must I do to find the results for which I’m looking?
Those are important questions, and we are wise when we apply the best-known answers to our lives. But when the crowd asked Jesus what they must do in order to never feel hungry again, Jesus didn’t tell them to do anything. Instead, Jesus told them, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.”
Jesus knows we cannot do the works that would make us worthy of eternal life. This is precisely why Jesus came into this world–to do the works for us that we could not do for ourselves.
That’s why Jesus didn’t tell the crowd to do anything but “believe in the one God has sent.” In other words, he wanted them to stop working so hard to find the acceptance, love, forgiveness, and approval from God that had already been given them in himself. Jesus tells us the same–trust that Jesus has done everything necessary for you to enjoy eternal life with him.
Father in heaven, thank you for sending Jesus, my Savior who never fails to satisfy my soul. Amen.
Let’s express our love for Jesus and for each other and Worship together!

Men or women…do you have an interest in providing guidance and oversight for Trinity Lutheran School? Due to the organizational structure changes enacted by the congregation in April, men and women are able to serve on the Board of Education. If interested, please contact Pastor Tesch or Board of Education Chairman Tim Baneck. Candidates will be appointed by Pastor Tesch and the Church Council. We currently have 1 vacancy and would prefer that a member of Trinity be appointed to serve in that capacity. If we do not have a member to fill the vacancy by September 1, we will then broaden our invitation to non-members.
