Cover Acknowledgement

We thank Hope Luurtsema, Faith Lutheran Church, Coloma, Mich. whose artistry appears on this month’s cover. Hope explains the meaning of the cover’s symbolism, based on Luke 19:10 “For the Son of Man is come to seek and to save that which was lost,” as follows:

Notice how the “k” in “seek” reaches up toward the heart to remind us that God the Father loves us so much that He sent His Son to come to earth to die for our sins. Jesus is symbolized by the cross also extending upward from the “k.” After Jesus arose and ascended into heaven, He did not leave us comfortless, but sent the Holy Ghost to keep us in the true faith. He is represented by the dove swooping down from the “s” in “seek.” The Triune God sought us!

” . . . to save that which was lost.” Discover how Christ encircles us with His love. Visualize this with the “v” in “save.” Follow the line of the “e” up to the right, through the hand, down the wrist, and up again to form a heart. We were lost and falling farther away from God when Christ caught us. He saved us the only possible way, when our sins nailed Him to the cross. Through His precious, innocent blood, we are washed clean. “It is finished!” We are saved through faith in Christ. Praise be to God!

May we, out of gratitude, spend our lives in joy, telling others of Christ’s love for them.
