The Great Miracle of God and Man Reconciled (Easter Observed)

The Great Miracle of God and Man Reconciled (Easter Observed)

Today was a special service in that we observed Easter. Yes, we celebrated Easter in July! Due to the pandemic, our original Easter services were cancelled and today, July 12, is the first time we have held a divine service so we thought it appropriate to open with the Observance of Easter. Truly though, every Sunday is an Easter celebration for He is Risen – He is Risen Indeed!

Today’s sermon text is from 1 Corinthians 15,

19 If in Christ we have hope in this life only, we are of all people most to be pitied.

20 But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 21 For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.

Prayer during a pandemic.

Almighty God, heavenly Father, give us grace to trust You during this time of illness and distress. In mercy put an end to the pandemic that afflicts us. Grant relief to those who suffer, and comfort all that mourn. Sustain all medical personnel in their labors, and cause Your people ever to serve You in righteousness and holiness; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen
