God’s Encouraging Word …
when I am tired
            Sleep experts advise getting seven to eight hours of sleep a night.  We need rest for our tired bodies to recuperate. 
            Even on the most regular day, life is draining.  The work day is long, and the demands are great.  The commute, getting the kids to school, work schedules, meeting deadlines, grocery shopping, getting dinner ready, children’s activities, only to get ready to do it over again the next day.  Getting older doesn’t help matters.  By the time you hit the pillow at night you may feel like a smart device that has only 2% battery life left.
           But what do you do when you become tired emotionally?  It’s the exhaustion that comes from strained relationships, heated arguments and being rejected by those from whom you want acceptance.
            Then there’s that inner weariness—the kind that no one else knows you have except you. The weariness that comes from the burden of sin and guilt.  It comes when you must live in the brokenness of past mistakes.  When things don’t go so well on any given day, you wonder if God is angry and out to get you.  The earthly consequences of your sins and knowledge of your guilt is…well…spiritually tiring.
           God comes to you today with an encouraging word recorded in the book of Isaiah: The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.  
           The LORD is the everlasting God.  He is the Creator.  He never gets tired.  He has perfect understanding; he knows what it’s like when you feel tired for any reason at all.  He promises to give strength to you when you’re tired.  The LORD God is Jesus, your Savior.  He took your sins and guilt to the cross and died for you.  It’s a fact!  Jesus took your sins and guilt away from you, buried it all in his tomb, and rose from the dead.  Your sins are forgiven.  That’s rest—rest for your soul.  Talk about strength for the weary!
           And don’t forget!  It’s the LORD God who gives the blessing of physical rest too.  It’s been said that a clean conscience is a good pillow.  God gives you this clean conscience in Jesus Christ.  He also provides you with home, food, and bed to become recharged to tackle the new day with all its challenges.  So, do it with all the energy and strength that Lord God gives you as his own through faith in Jesus!
 
From the Pastor’s Desk
A STRANGE TOOL
            I recently made a trip down to our Seminary in Mequon for a Symposium. While at the Symposium I had the opportunity to speak with President Mark Zarling of Martin Luther College. A part of our conversation revolved around this strange tool that he held in his hand. It had a center shaft that extended upward and off that shaft were some metal ribs. Those ribs were covered with a nylon fabric. He had held this device over his head while walking outside because a strange substance was falling from the sky.
           Most of you have probably already figured out that President Zarling was carrying an umbrella because it was raining outside, and he didn’t want to get wet. But for someone who rarely saw rain during the year while living in Southern California, an umbrella could be considered a strange tool. However, the umbrella did its job and he was not wet. I, on the other hand, did have evidence on my clothing of having walked in the rain without an umbrella. If I had been prepared, I would have been as dry as President Zarling.
          For people living in our world, the Gospel is just as strange a tool. They may have heard it at one point in their lives but never really know what it is for. They may have used it at one point but forgot how to use it in preparation for where they are in their current life. Or, they simply misuse it. It is a tool that is foreign to humans in general since the fall into sin.
           Paul tells us in Romans 1:16-17: “I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes... For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: ‘The righteous will live by faith.’” (NIV 1984)
           Because of our sinful nature, the Gospel is something that is too good to be true. It could never be that easy. How could someone decide to pay for something I’m not sure I’m guilty of? Why would someone do that and require nothing of me? Do I even want to share this with someone I know deserves the full wrath of God for the wrong they have committed against society and me? Do I even think it is worth being different because of the Gospel?
           Yet Paul tells us to “not be ashamed of the Gospel.” It is God’s power for all who believe. It is God working in us. It is God making us right before Him. It is God making sure His standards have been met so we can be by His side for eternity. It is God creating in us a heart that deeply aches when we see anyone rejecting or taking lightly His Word of love. It is God picking us up and giving us the power and desire to stand strong in the face of the torments, trials, and tribulations that come our way. In so doing, the Gospel stops being a “strange tool.” It becomes the tool we reach for first in our daily lives.
            his all leads us to ask ourselves: “Am I making the most and best use of this tool in my life?” You know how you are doing. We can all do better. Thankfully, our Loving Father makes us better with that very tool as we use it. So, make use of it in your private life, with your fellow members in worship and Bible Study and as His mouthpiece to the world and community we live in.
When I lived in Southern California, an umbrella was not something I used very often. However, the more I live in the North Woods of Wisconsin, the more I will learn to have one as an attachment whenever it threatens to rain. So. also, we all can grow in our use, reliance on, and confidence in the tool of our Lord’s Gospel.
 
           WORSHIP TIME is each Sunday at 9:30am.
            SUNDAY SCHOOL is each Sunday at 11:00am.
            BIBLE STUDIES
           The Sunday morning Bible class meets at 11:00am following the worship service.  Please join us as we study of the Book of John.
            The Wednesday and Thursday Bible Studies are going through “God the Ultimate Humanitarian.” This book, by Pastor Mark Care, was written to help people understand and speak to those seeking the Christian Faith, Mormons (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints) in particular. Join us on Wednesdays @ 6:30pm and Thursdays @ 10:00am for this study.
           The Voyager Village Bible study group will meet October 9 & 23 at 1:00pm.  The current topic is “Women in the Bible.”  The group meets at the home of Alan & Jan Niedfeldt (28402 Kilkare Rd, phone: 715-505-7526).
       
   Mission and Ministry Sunday will be Oct. 21 to celebrate God’s blessings on His church and to renew our commitment to the Great Commission to “go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:18-20). 
         
        REAL GOOD EXCUSES

  There is a popular stereotype of Jesus as a first-century Mr. Rogers—always walking slowly, always talking softly with a pleasant smile, always asking questions about how certain topics make you feel. If you do any reading in the four gospels, i.e., his authorized biographies, you will notice right away that Jesus had a tart tongue. He did not hesitate to smack his disciples when they disappointed him with their small faith or lack of understanding, and he was merciless in skewering hypocritical “church people” of his era.
         On one occasion he invited various people to follow him. He got one excuse after another, and here’s the thing—the excuses all sounded reasonably plausible. Like: Another disciple said to him, ‘Lord, first let me go and bury my father.’ But Jesus told him, ‘Follow me, and let the dead bury their dead’ (Matthew 8:21,22). Does Jesus sound just a little crabby to you? Would he pull you away from your own father’s funeral? Did he not himself show great compassion for the bereaved?
             Of course. Here’s the point: That funeral and all the lengthy estate legal problems and arrangements would effectively keep the man busy for weeks and months. He would never experience the incredible adventure of accompanying the Son of God for personal teaching and mentoring.
          Do you have really good excuses that keep you from significant leadership or service to God’s kingdom? from leading that Bible study? going on that marriage retreat? filling that board of directors’ seat?

 WE WORSHIP GOD AND USE OUR MONEY,
NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND.

 
            But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand.  1 Chronicles 29:14
            Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.  He chose to give us birth through the word of truth that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created.” James 1:17-18

Grace of Giving
           And they exceeded our expectations: They gave themselves first of all to the Lord, and then by the will of God also to us.   2 Corinthians 8:5
­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Many years ago, in some congregations, members would pay rent for the pew that they sat in each Sunday. Old pictures show pews with numbers so that people wouldn’t sit in someone else’s pew. Not that long ago, church members would talk about paying their “dues” to the church.  
           Giving to the Lord isn’t about paying membership dues or supporting an institution. Giving to the Lord is about giving your self to the Lord. The gift you bring represents the time you spent in earning it. It’s not just money; it’s giving your very self to the Lord.
A famous missionary, Robert Moffat, was just a boy when the offering plate was passed in his church. He had nothing to give, so he put the plate on the floor and stood in it. “I only have myself to give,” he said. 
Why do Christians give themselves to the Lord first? Because our Lord came down from his throne to redeem us to be his own. God in his mercy doesn’t enslave us. He wins our hearts by his love and allows us to give ourselves to him in joyful thanksgiving. The next time the plate is passed, give yourself to Jesus!
            PRAYER:  Lord Jesus, I am yours and you are mine! My life is full because I know you as my Savior. Forgive me for my selfish ways in which I have denied you my best, my all. Show me that to live for you is my greatest joy in life. Amen.
 
           SIGN UP FOR C18:  One-million souls. That is the goal. To share the gospel with one-million souls prior to and on Christmas Eve. That goal is part of WELS Congregational Services’ C18 program. The only way to achieve that goal is for all WELS members, young and old, to embrace the privilege and responsibility of sharing Christ with unchurched friends, relatives, and neighbors. A simple way to do that—invite them to come with your family to your congregation’s Christmas Eve worship service. A recent survey found that 80% of unchurched adults would seriously consider accepting an invitation, extended by a friend, to attend a Christmas Eve service. C18 walks you through this process step-by-step.  For more information and to sign up to receive free weekly materials and encouragement, go to  welscongregationalservices.net/c18.
       
             A Big Change in seasons is comingCool temps and lots of color in the trees.
           It has been a nice summer with lots of rain and that makes the grass grow.  I want to thank everyone who helped with mowing and keeping the lawn looking great all summer, especially the flower garden.
           With the seasons changing the rain will turn to snow and that means shoveling.  Any help keeping sidewalks clean will be appreciated.
            If there are problems with anything, please let make know.
           Thank you all helping keep God’s house beautiful.  John Schultz
 
          A NOTE FROM BEAUTIFUL SAVIOR PRAYER CHAIN
           Prayer of Faith: Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. Is anyone among you sick?

OUR FALL RUMMAGE EVENT - WERE YOU THERE?
           Our free rummage event (FRE) was very successful again this year. 608 people attended the event and many hundreds of pounds of clothing, housewares, toys and books were distributed to those in our community and beyond. It always amazes me that people come from so far away to attend our event. We had people from as far away as Bloomer, Balsam Lake and Cable. Many of those who attended expressed their thanks for our particular type of rummage event; namely, that everything is free. One group of young adults told me that they would have had to make do with many fewer furnishings for their new apartment if it weren’t for our efforts.
            There were many who came through our church doors for the first time.  They were greeted with warm Christian smiles, Bible verses, plus items for their physical needs. The event gives us the ability to serve others and members of our own congregation; and, in that way serve with Jesus. These events are appreciated by many. 
            It also helps many of us clean out closets and trim down our belongings and share with others. 
One new aspect of our event this year was the handing out of Biblical tracts specifically targeted to those who don’t know Christ. Four different messages about Reconciliation, Forgiveness, God’s Justice and the Power of God were handed out to the attendees as they exited our event. I ask that all of you continue to pray that these small pieces of paper may bring someone to a real relationship with Christ. The Word is powerful and the prayers of a righteous man accomplish much (James 5:16, paraphrase) Keep praying that God’s Word may open their hearts to Him.
            One other aspect of this year’s event that I’d like to share is the data I have collected from last year’s survey and this year’s event. In last year’s survey 23 people had indicated they would help in some way with the FRE and indeed, we had 25 people participate in some aspect of the event. This is exciting, but the fact remains--we do have some serious shortfalls in manpower that will only become worse next year. And, when I say “manpower,” I mean “man”power. Two very dedicated individuals carried the brunt of all the heavy lifting, shifting, and moving of the items. We cannot continue in this manner; and, if the FRE is to continue, we need more males to step up and take over some of these functions. Also, I will not be able to continue as sole chair of the event due to my job responsibilities. I am glad to handle organizing sorting, helping with publicity and evangelism materials, and arranging for disposal of our leftovers, but the event itself is a no-go for me. Anyone willing to take that on can contact me for more info. I am now in the process of organizing an “after-action” meeting, so look for more information on when that will take place.
            Finally, I’d like to thank Thrivent for giving us a generous grant to help defray costs for printing, materials, and purchase of Bibles. One of the Thrivent members in our congregation found this resource and went through all the work of applying for aid from them.
           Thank you to all who helped this year and who have helped throughout all the years that Beautiful Savior has been doing this. If you are interested in helping with this service to others in any way for the next event, please speak to Debra Boelk (715-469-3425) or one of the helpers from this year. 
           Debra Boelk, FRE Chair 2018
 
           Thank you to Debra and our dedicated workers!

WORLD MISSIONS--Faces of Faith - Ching
           His name is Ching. He was born 28 or 29 years ago in the jungles of western Thailand. He technically has two birthdays - the date that his parents told him he was born and the one the government assigned to him when his family was assimilated into Thailand’s population….
His family was moved to Village 9, one of the settlements established by the government for refugees. He attended school through the third grade but had to leave due to family difficulties and the need to work in the fields in to help support the family. No one in his family was Christian including his four siblings.
           A strange dream caused his mother to seek out the local Christian leaders of our fledgling mission in Village 9… (Read more at wels.net/category/wels-blogs/missions-blog/ and scroll down to the article).

MISSION PRAYERS
          Evangelism – Lord Jesus, we praise you for your plan of salvation accomplished for all people at the price of your own blood, and we thank you for the privilege of proclaiming this good news to all the world. Help us to see people as you see them, from a spiritual perspective, and to have compassion on those trying to find their way without yet knowing the Light of the world. Fill us with your Spirit so we can be bold in sharing the gospel with others. Amen.
           Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary – Almighty God, we thank you for Pastor Paul Wendland's service to your church through his presidency of Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary these past 15 years. We pray that you will continue to utilize his service as a full-time professor to prepare the next generation of pastors to lead your church. May seminary students benefit from his insight and encouragement for many years to come. Amen.
           Evangelism – Lord God, at a time when so many people aren't familiar with even basic biblical teachings, we thank you for providing Pastor Eric Roecker as WELS director of Evangelism to help train WELS members to share the good news with their communities. Please use him as a catalyst to energize members, to support them in telling others about Jesus, and to overcome their fears. Thank you also for the many years of service of Pastor Mike Hintz, who has retired from overseeing this work. Amen.
          Russia – Lord Jesus, you have instructed us to go out into all the world to preach the gospel to all creation. We pray that you would bless the workers serving in Russia. Use them to equip congregational leaders, train youth, and support members as they work to spread the gospel despite tremendous political and social challenges. Amen.
  
Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails. Proverbs 19:21  
 
LUTHERAN RECOVERY MINISTRIES
cross the country, substance abuse, pornography addiction, and struggles with mental health issues are soaring. Many WELS churches are aware of the growing need to offer sound spiritual recovery resources for those who combat temptation and desire to remain in recovery. Lutheran Recovery Ministries has responded with RESILIENT Recovery groups and now a recovery retreat for WELS members. 
          The Lutheran Recovery Ministries’ Recovery Retreat for WELS members will be at Our Lady of Guadalupe Monastery, Phoenix, Ariz., Oct. 26-28, 2018. The theme is “Finding Hope Amidst Pain and Suffering.” There will be sharing meetings (both mixed and according to need), breakout groups, law and gospel presentations, guided prayers, songs, Sunday service, socializing, and lots to eat!

   Good News from 316NOW
Readying for Takeoff
           Our fall teaching trip to China is scheduled. Your prayers are needed!
           A team of 316NOW’s faculty members is preparing for a monthlong teaching trip in China during October and November. Already now, our five travelers are:
                    Researching airline schedules and tickets.
                    Preparing their study materials.
                    Brushing up on Mandarin phrases.
                    Asking for the Spirit’s blessing on their travels.
           The team will visit eight cities over the course of 34 days.  We have groups of students and other friends in each of those cities. They will host our pop-up classroom for small groups of Christians (small groups help us avoid notice by local officials). We expect to make new friends; we will invite them to our online Bible institute. And we look forward to spending one-on-one time with the Chinese friends we've met online. They value our encouragement and ministry advice. We value what they teach us about living for Jesus in China.
          Prayer: Lord bless the 316NOW fall teaching trip to China. Be with them, Lord, as they bring the good news of salvation and unconditional love for all people.  Protect and comfort those who will be so far from home as they work in your harvest field.

But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture
 is a matter of one's own interpretation,
for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will,
but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God. 2 Peter 1:20-21.

Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth,
where moths and vermin destroy,
and where thieves break in and steal.

But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
where moths and vermin do not destroy,

and where thieves do not break in and steal.
For where your treasure is,

there your heart will be also.
  Matthew 6:19-21
 
Tough conversations about stuff
          Things in this life are temporary and fleeting. We live in a house for a while, maybe even for a long time. But the house wears out and needs to be updated and repaired. Or we move to a new house, maybe into a new city, a new state, and a new school. Things in this life constantly fall apart. We buy a new pair of shoes, and in just weeks they’re already creased and wearing out. Our favorite pair of jeans becomes thin and worn.
           Everything in this life is temporary. Yet, these are the things that we chase. We’ve got to have the right shoes, the right jeans, the right clothes. We want just the right house in just the right neighborhood where we drive just the right car. We work extra hours to have a little extra spending money. Then it disappears and wears out. It’s here today and tomorrow it’s gone.
           That’s not even the most dangerous part. Jesus points it out to us: “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” If our hearts treasure the stuff of this world—which can make life comfortable and enjoyable—then we will go the way of our treasures. Away. Worn out. Tossed out and away from God.
          hat is why we must have this tough conversation. In some ways, it is none of my business what you do with your money and what kinds of things you enjoy, especially if it isn’t forbidden by God. But I am concerned for your heart and for your eternity. That’s why I have to warn you. If your treasure is your stuff, then you will go the way of your treasures.
          But when Jesus is your treasure, you have everything. You have forgiveness, life, and eternity. You have a Father in heaven who loves to give all these things to those who seek first his kingdom and a Spirit who loves to dwell in your heart to give you contentment and joy whatever the circumstances of your life. When you have Jesus, you have everything. He isn’t ever going to go away. He won’t ever wear out or fade away. He will remain for you and with you forever.
           Prayer: Lord Jesus, you are everything to me. You are my life, my righteousness, my redemption. You are my eternity. Help me to set my heart on you and treasure you above all things. Amen.

Bringing in the Sheaves (chorus)
Bringing in the sheaves,
              bringing in the sheaves,
We shall come rejoicing,
