Sermon: Trinity 16 (Gospel)

23 September AD 2012

Theme: Death Interrupted (MP3 Audio)

Summary: Death’s parade is canceled when it runs into the Son of Righteousness. Sinful mankind’s inevitable pilgrimage to the grave and on to eternal condemnation is interrupted by Jesus. The mother found joy with the return of her son while all who feel boxed in and entombed by their sins celebrate, knowing that the young man’s restoration is a sign of their coming resurrection to life everlasting.

Text: Soon afterward [Jesus] went to a town called Nain, and his disciples and a great crowd went with him. As he drew near to the gate of the town, behold, a man who had died was being carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow, and a considerable crowd from the town was with her. And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her and said to her, “Do not weep.”

Then he came up and touched the bier, and the bearers stood still. And he said, “Young man, I say to you, arise.” And the dead man sat up and began to speak, and Jesus gave him to his mother.

Fear seized them all, and they glorified God, saying, “A great prophet has arisen among us!” and “God has visited his people!” And this report about him spread through the whole of Judea and all the surrounding country. Luke 7:11-17

NB: For some reason, a few people have had problems trying to play the inline audio if Windows Media is their default MP3 player. If this occurs, you can either change to QuickTime or another default browser player, copy and paste the link directly into a selected player, or download it to your computer, where it seems to work regardless of which player. Several folks have suggested VLC Player from VideoLAN.

Other Readings: Psalm 30; 1 Kings 17:17-24; Ephesians 3:13-21
