Hello, my name is Jon Vollrath. I am a Christian. I am also a member and pastor of Our Savior's Lutheran Church, Eyota.
At one time, I could not believe that I would be best off in God's will and care. Now I cannot imagine being outside of it. This is what I know to be the transforming power of Christ Jesus and I want everyone to experience this also. I no longer have the fears, doubts, and anxieties that I use to. And I know a powerful remedy for the ones that re-emerge from time to time.
In explaining this experience, I like to use the illustration of The Peasant King. A king wanted to know what the people really thought about him. He felt many wanted to be near him just for his wealth, power, and money. He disguised himself as peasant and got a job in the village. Some genuinely enjoyed his company. Others brushed him off. The king revealed his plan to all and invited his friends to share his wealth.
In Jesus' life, we see the glorious King of the heavens as one of us. In His life, we embrace Him for who He is first and foremost and what He does for us.
In His Word and Sacraments, the King still comes humbly to us today.
His presence changes us. We don't see God as a distant and apathetic king. We know the One who loves to love us. He knows we need His love and service or our eternal futures will fall apart.
Please read the following truths that have changed my life. If you would like to learn more, please give me a call (272-3104) or honor us with your presence at Our Savior's Lutheran Church.
