Worship Preparation - Sunday, April 5, 2015

1. Read the sermon text: Luke 24:1-12

2. Read the sermon summary:
As we gather to worship Christ this Sunday, we will worship him as the LIVING Lord. We worship him not as just a man, who was killed upon a cross, but as the God-Man, who freely gave his life upon the cross and was vindicated by God. God raised him up from the grave, leaving an empty tomb for a group of women to find on the first Easter morning. God proclaimed to them, through his angelic messengers, that he has risen, and could be found among the living. Disciples are called by God's power alone to believe the news that Christ is victorious over death and to proclaim repentance and forgiveness of sins in the name of Jesus to all the nations.

3. Consider this song in relationship to the sermon:
In Christ Alone

In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light my strength my song
This Cornerstone this solid Ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love what depths of peace
When fears are stilled when strivings cease
My Comforter my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
Till on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life's first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand
