MOST PREP SAT CLASS
Faith Lutheran is proud to announce a new SAT preparation partnership with the founder and president of MostPrep, Mike Obstgarten. He will be running 6-week prep courses at 6:45 to 9:15pm in room 216 for juniors and seniors specifically for the SAT starting this summer for $600. Students interested in prepping for the ACT should still take this course as the exams are now similar enough that specific ACT courses are not necessary. This full-length course provides ample instruction and review of the concepts most frequently tested on the SAT, as well as the coaching and implementation of the test-taking techniques that have been proven to work, all while dispelling common myths and reassuring students that the task in front of them is not as daunting as it might seem. To sign up please fill out the form at this link a minimum of 2 weeks prior to the start of the class you are interested in. REGISTER The total $600 for the class will be added to your tuition bill once the class has begun. Contact Mr. Buikema at buikemad@flhsemail.org or Mike directly at mostprep@gmail.comwith questions.

DEVOTIONAL
Today’s Reading: 2 Peter 3:3-14
Daily Lectionary: Jeremiah 38:1-28; Matthew 28:57-66
Scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires. (2 Peter 3:3)
In the Name + of Jesus. Amen. Imagine that! Scoffers will come scoffing. In other news, dancers with come dancing, drummers will come drumming, and pipers will come piping.
However, these scoffers seem to have a point. Namely, if God is so serious about the end of the world, why hasn’t it already happened? Why aren’t there at least more of the signs of the End Times? If there is a God, why isn’t He at least remotely interested in the mess that we’re making out of this world?
Peter says that the scoffers overlook God’s absolute dominion over creation. He brought it into being, judged it with water, and will sustain it until a final, fiery cleansing. Furthermore, we’re cautioned not to overlook something else: Our perception of time and estimate of creation’s duration don’t match God’s. When time seems to rush by, the Lord may see its passing as slow and steady. And when the days seemingly drag on without end, He sees them pass in the blink of an eye.
But no matter whether hurrying by or playing out slowly, the days remain in order for the Lord to complete an important task. He delays the end in order to save as many as possible from the judgment that will come with Christ’s return.
This isn’t for the benefit of the believers praying, “Come, Lord Jesus (Revelation 22:20).” Rather, it’s so unbelievers may hear the Good News, believe, and be saved, joining us in the resurrection to life everlasting. Murdering murderers, cheating cheaters, and lying liars—even scoffing scoffers—remain who will reach repentance. So even as we ask Him to come quickly, we also ask Jesus to tarry, on behalf of the lost who need to be found. In the Name + of Jesus. Amen. -Rev. Walter Snyder
O Jesus Christ, do not delay, But hasten our salvation; We often tremble on our way In fear and tribulation. O hear and grant our fervent plea: Come, mighty judge, and set us free From death and ev’ry evil. (The Day is Surely Drawing Near, LSB 508:7)
