I am looking forward to this coming Sunday and sharing a message from the Book of Romans 4:1-17. The title of the sermon is “Bridging the Great Divide.” The message is about obtaining righteousness, like that of Father Abraham, by crossing the great barrier of sin which separates us from a relationship with a holy God. The message is about faith in Jesus as the only way to come to the Father and receive forgiveness and eternal life.
Pastor Ron was raised in a secular household but converted to Judaism in 1968 to marry Paula Eisen. In 1987, he was confronted with the Gospel for the first time, having read the New Testament along with Isaiah 53. One year later at age 45 he received his Messiah while being offered communion for the first time. Ron holds a Master’s Degree in Theological Studies from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary where he studied the Scriptures from a Jewish perspective. Since 2005 he has served as a Field Missionary with Chosen People Ministries, preaching in churches throughout the United States. Having done additional studies of Luther’s catechisms, and been examined by a board of pastors, today Pastor Ron is a Rostered Lutheran Pastor having been confirmed by LCMC on July 10, 2013 and ordained to serve on staff at the Lutheran Church of the Cross as heir Visitation Pastor.
