The Right Distinction Between The Law & Gospel | Sermon

Pastor Bramwell preached this sermon on Luke 10:25-29 on the Thirteenth Sunday after Trinity, September 11, 2022.

Did the lawyer understand the Law correctly?

Why did he justify himself?

When Jesus says, “do this, and you will live,” (10:28) do is in the present imperative, which means “keep doing” continually. Can you keep the Law continually?

What does the Law do to you?

What does the Gospel do to you?

Who is the doer of the Law?

What inheritance is already yours in Christ Jesus?

St. Mark Lutheran Church posts Rev. Bramwell’s sermons online for the sake of the members of our congregation who are unable to gather with us due to illness, work, etc. This resource is not intended to encourage anyone from gathering in person around God’s Word and Sacraments. Matthew 18:20 and Hebrews 10:25 make it clear that God’s Divine Service is meant to be experienced physically with other Christians.

We give thanks to God that these sermons are a blessing to you and pray that if you’re in Humboldt County, you will join us on Sunday mornings at 10:30 AM as God wills. (See the map below for directions.) If you’re not within driving distance of Ferndale CA, we encourage you to use the Church Locator at to find a church near you so you can gather in person with the communion of saints in your area.
