S8E51: Turn Weeping to Joy (Living the Resurrection pt. 2)

8Apr

Sermon #439

As Christians we have a temptation to say that we ought not to mourn in times of sadness.  Yet there is much biblical evidence that mourning is a proper response to sad events, such as the death of a loved one.  The disciples, who heard Jesus' teaching about his own death and resurrection, still mourned when he was killed on the cross.  But their mourning was turned to joy when they encountered the risen Christ.  What we see in today's teaching from Easter Sunday 2021 is that Christ turns our mourning to joy when he speaks our name.
