Worship Preparation: April 4, 2021

Sunday, April 4, 2021
Read the sermon text: Luke 23:50-24:12

Read the sermon summary: Isn’t it amazing how great and awesome things become ordinary and commonplace to us over time? Consider the sun, a giant mass of fire which the earth rotates around. Or the billions (yes, with a “b”) of galaxies light years away. Is it possible that the resurrection of Jesus has become commonplace to us because of our familiarity with it? Did Jesus really rise from the dead? What evidence do we have for this extraordinary claim? What implications does this have for us and all people? These and other questions are addressed in the historic document, the Heidelberg Catechism. This Sunday we will consider various passages from Scripture as we consider the resurrection of Jesus. Let us pray that God would reignite our wonder at such an extraordinary truth.
Read the following song lyrics in relation to the sermon:
Jesus Is Alive
There is now a hope that lasts beyond our days
For the One that once was buried lives again
Now the tomb is bare and empty
And the stone is rolled away
Praise the risen One who overcame the grave
All you brokenhearted all you worn and weak
Come find living water everlasting streams
To the wandering spirit
Lost and searching wanting something more
Find the risen King who overcomes the world
Let there be dancing in the darkness
And let our song break through the night
Lift your voice and sing that Christ is King
For Jesus is alive
No more condemnation no more doubt and fear
For our sin and shame they have no power here
In His resurrection
Perfect love has set the captives free
Praise the risen King who stands in victory
Hallelujah death is undone
Hallelujah Jesus has won
Hallelujah we overcome
Oh in Jesus oh in Jesus
Lift your voice and sing that Christ is King
For Jesus is alive
