The Second Sunday of Easter (A)
“Sons and Daughters of the King”
April 23, 2017
Sermon Text: 1 Peter 1:3-9
Grace, mercy and peace be unto you from our victorious Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
Dearly Beloved of the Lord,
It really says it all. He says it all in beautiful form and fashion… and this certainly by the power of the Holy Spirit at work in him.
I am referring to St. Peter and his words which make up our appointed Epistle text… perfect words for this, the Second Sunday of Easter… truly comforting words which we now have the joy of considering and taking to heart.
Indeed, one can hardly read this portion of Scripture and not sense that something truly magnificent and wonderful is going on here… that something truly precious and priceless is being held up for us and all the world to marvel at and give unceasing thanks.
