19 April 2019 – Advent Announcements

Easter Sunday, April 21, 10:30 a.m. – “A God Who Rises” (Isaiah 65:17–25; 1 Corinthians 15:19–26; John 20:1–18 or Luke 24:1–12): Jesus’ resurrection is a very physical act for the life of the man Jesus. “No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of My own accord. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again,” Jesus had said (John 10:18). So now He does. The very good news is that Jesus’ resurrection is not just for His sake. As His death was for those of us who in our bodies are dying as the fair consequence for our sins, so now His resurrection is for those of us over whom death was thought to have the final word. Jesus rose bodily, body and soul knit back together eternally. And He promises not some disembodied rest for our souls with Him but a complete resurrection to follow where He has led the way. As we sing in the hymn refrain, “Jesus has risen and we shall arise: Give God the glory! Alleluia!” (LSB 474).
