The Perfect Easter Sermon

In the name of God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.


Alleluia, Christ is risen! The Lord is risen indeed. Alleluia!

I learned in seminary that the preacher’s job is to preach the good news. That’s it. Christ is risen!

I thought about sitting down at this point tonight. Thought about how Billy Graham used to say: “The greatest news that mortal ear has ever heard is the news that Jesus Christ has risen from the dead.”
