Sermon: Sunday April 16, 2017 - Easter Sunday

The Holy Gospel according to St. Matthew, the twenty-eighth chapter.
Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men. But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. See, I have told you.” So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. And behold, Jesus met them and said, “Greetings!” And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me.”

Easter Sunday Bulletin and Pastor's Message

"Christ is risen! He is risen indeed". What a phrase we start our worship with on Easter. It should be the greatest thing we think about today and everyday of our lives. We need to remind ourselves this because there will be many times in our lives we see death.

Whether we face the death of our husband or wife, the death of our parent or child, or the death of our friend we will be tempted to believe that death is the end of our lives. We will be tempted to believe that when life is over, it is all over....but that could not be further from the truth!

Today you will walk with Mary Magdalene to the tomb as she becomes the very first one to witness that Jesus has conquered death. Jesus has not only conquered death for Himself, but He now gives that victory back to you through your baptism into Christ. And now, just like Jesus, all believers in Christ have the promise of a resurrection from the dead. Christ's resurrection from the dead is now your promise of a resurrection from the dead.

May we today, and every day of our lives, shout with joy that "Christ is risen! He is risen indeed."
Pastor Grimenstein
