Behind Closed Doors – Week 3


Saving the Soul – James 5:13-20

The call to come out from behind the closed doors of our sin is a call to community and accountability. When we are wounded, we must be ready for God to use the believers he has placed around us as part of our healing. God will deliver the saving power of his Gospel to us through people.

A natural reaction we have to our sin is to hide it, to deny it, and to avoid dealing with it. For this reason we keep our sins “behind closed doors” in silence, in darkness, separate from the healing God and our community of believers can bring us.

About the speaker

Bethlehem Lutheran Church of Denver - David Langewisch

David Langewisch
Pastor/Student Ministry

First and foremost you need to know I am a sinner who has been cleansed by the blood of Jesus. I believe my life is fully in him. I feel good about my training to be a pastor. However, my heart's desire is to simply be a servant of Christ, used by him to help people experience fullness of life in him. Sometimes I think I’m smart. Sometimes I think I’m funny. But I count all of this as a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ and being found in him. My favorite book of the Bible is Romans, and if you have to pin me down, my favorite chapter is Romans 8. Personally, I think this matters more than knowing I’m from Minnesota, or that I was graduated from Lutheran schools starting with elementary school. Curiosity might lead you to ask about my wonderful wife, Lynn, and four children, but I would probably exaggerate about their greatness and how helpful would that be? If you really want to know other positions I’ve held, honors I’ve received, etc., you can ask and I will try to remember. But when you walk away from our conversation, this is what I want you to remember about me – I am a sinner who has been cleansed by the blood of Jesus and I believe my life is fully in him. And if, in my contact with you, some of this rubs off on you, and you share the same perspective with greater conviction, I will count it a blessing.
