THE ANNOUNCEMENTS

NEXT WEEK’S READINGS . . . Ezekiel 37:1–14; 1 John 5:4–10; John 20:19–31.

ABOUT THIS WEEK’S READINGS . . . “Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed” (1 Cor. 5:7). By the shed blood of Christ, the Lamb of God, eternal death has passed over us. Now we pass with Christ through death into life everlasting. For Christ the crucified One is risen! The stone has been rolled away from the tomb, revealing that the tomb could not hold Him (Mark 16:1–8). Now our Redeemer lives eternally to save us from sin and Satan and the grave, and we can live in the sure hope of our own bodily resurrection with Christ. “After my skin has been thus destroyed, yet in my flesh I shall see God” (Job 19:26). Feasting on the living Christ, who is our meat and drink indeed, we boldly say: “O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting? . . . But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Cor. 15:54–55, 57).

THOUGHTS ABOUT STEWARDSHIP . . . John 20:1 “Now on the first day of the week.” All is made new by the Resurrection of Jesus! Even the day of worship has transitioned from the Old Testament’s Saturday Sabbath to the Lord’s Day of the New Testament. For the Lord has made all things new: He has begun a new week for a new creation in rising from the dead as the New Adam. We are also made new in Him—a new heart, a new life, new desires, a new outlook toward God: all this comes from our Risen Lord’s grace.

NO BUNCO THIS SUNDAY . . . But we will have it next Sunday, April 12, 6:00–8:00 pm, at the parsonage. Please bring an appetizer or dessert to share. After this month, we will resume the normal schedule of having Bunco on the first Sunday of the month.
