Minion: a servile follower or subordinate of a person in power.

 

Our Lord Jesus Christ said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me” (Matthew 28:18). God has put all things under His feet and gave Him as the head of the church (Ephesians 1:22). Therefore, sacramental minions seek the blessing promised by Christ when He says, “Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes” (Luke 12:43). Sacramental minions seek to be faithful as “as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God,” not seeking to do things according to our own designs, desires, and will, but being faithful to the express commands Christ has given us through His Holy Apostles as they are laid out in the Scriptures (1 Corinthians 4:1-2), and trusting Him to give growth to His church (1 Corinthians 3:6) through the means He has established (Cxref. Augsburg Confession, Article V) just as He did during the days following Pentecost (Acts 2:42ff).

About Norm Fisher

Norm was raised in the UCC in Connecticut, and like many fell away from the church after high school. With this background he saw it primarily as a service organization. On the miracle of his first child he came back to the church. On moving to Texas a few years later he found a home in Lutheranism when he was invited to a confessional church a half-hour away by our new neighbors.

He is one of those people who found a like mind in computers while in Middle School and has been programming ever since. He's responsible for many websites, including the Book of Concord, LCMSsermons.com, and several other sites.

He has served the church in various positions, including financial secretary, sunday school teacher, elder, PTF board member, and choir member.

More of his work can be found at KNFA.net.

Great Stuff — Sacramental Minions — 8 Comments

  1. This is a little off topic, but I will throw it in.

    Last year, the Wyoming (?) area had a men’s retreat with devotions and a shooting range and a dinner, etc.

    One or two (mostly one) joy killers couldn’t stand it and went on and on about how terrible it was.

    Well, the Crosspoint Church is having a similar event and yes beer will be allowed at dinner.

    So, I just think it is funny. And I wonder if the same joy killer(s) would be so fussy about the 5two crowd having a men’s retreat as they were at the steadfast crowd.

  2. In the mid-1800s it was frowned upon for Lutheran pastors to hunt game. Some pietistic attitudes have carried over from that time. It’s funny to some, serious to others.

    They never condemned beer, though.

  3. ^ That might date back to the middle ages. Don’t ask me to cite a source, I cannot remember.

  4. A man of God speaks only the words that he has been given to speak, serves only the Master who is in control, in charge. Faithfulness is ours, results are God’s. Right on, brother!

  5. I’m wondering when the popular name Crosspoint (or Crosspointe, or Cross-pointe) Church will elide into Croissant Church, since doughnuts are the new sacrament.
