"My Eyes Have Seen Your Salvation"

... not to make light, but every Sunday is the ultimate Ground Hog Day—the 8th Day of our Baptism by water and the Word, through which we are even daily born into the kingdom of heaven. And weekly, here in the Divine Service we remember and... even relive the life of Christ with all His people—from Creation, to Redemption, to Sanctification—as it is poured over us and even into our very mouths.

The truth is, the LORD our God has been ordering it to be so from even before the foundations of the world, because His Son has been our Savior from even before the foundations of the world. Christ, "like that of a lamb without blemish or spot. He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you who through him are believers in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God." 1 Peter 1:19-21
