Christ’s death on the cross assures us of our salvation. Likewise, His resurrection assures us that we, too, will rise again. In 1 Corinthians 15:17 and 19, Paul writes, “And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile…If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men.” Certainly for the Christian, eternal life has already begun, and the passing from this life to the next is just a blip on the screen. In the confidence of such a sure hope, let us spend our time here in carrying on the work of Christ that the lost may be found and restored to their Savior.

About this blog
Welcome to my running online dialog on matters of our life together in faith community at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church—where the grace of Christ Jesus our Lord engages each of us and, in turn, sends us out to engage others with that grace as well. I look forward to learning and growing together.
