Exhortation: That we might have life in His Name

The resurrection is the most important article of our faith. St. John tells us that the resurrection is given to us, so we may have life in his name. Our very identity is connected with the identity of the resurrected Christ.

The resurrection is given for the strengthening of our faith. One of the central reasons Jesus appears again and again after his resurrection is so that his disciples might grow in their faith; so they might be built up to endure a life of discipleship.

This morning the Spirit ushers us into the presence of the resurrected and ascended Christ, so that just like the day when he first appeared to those first century disciples, we too, two-thousand years later, may be encouraged and strengthened to live and worship our Lord in this world.

  1. For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.
