Today is Memorial Sunday
The sermon will look at 3 stories where there is a death –
- The widow of Nain’s son (Luke 7:11-17)
- Jairus’ daughter (Luke 8:40-42, 49-56)
- Lazarus (Jn 11:1-44)
In each case there is grief and sorrow.
But then Jesus enters each story. And strange things happen. Dead people sit up and talk and eat and walk!
When we experience the death of a loved one, there is very real sorrow and grief. But with Jesus in our story makes a difference. Because he has won the victory over death (1 Cor 15:55-57).
