HOLY GOSPEL John 20:1-9   Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have put him!  So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb. Both were running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. He bent over and looked in at the strips of linen lying there but did not go in. Then Simon Peter, who was behind him, arrived and went into the tomb. He saw the strips of linen lying there, as well as the burial cloth that had been around Jesus head. The cloth was folded up by itself, separate from the linen. Finally the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went inside. He saw and believed. They still did not understand from Scripture that Jesus had to rise from the dead.

Hymn “Jesus Christ Is Risen Today” LSB 457 (We stand for verse 4)

Our Response to God Raising His Son from the Dead Psalm 118:15-24
Pulpit: Shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous: The LORDs
right hand has done mighty things!
Lectern: The LORDs right hand is lifted high; the LORDs right hand has done mighty things!
All: I will not die but live, and will proclaim what the LORD has done. The LORD
has chastened me severely, but he has not given me over to death.
Pulpit: Open for me the gates of righteousness; I will enter and give thanks to the
Lectern: This is the gate of the LORD through which the righteous may enter.
All: I will give you thanks, for you answered me; you have become my salvation.
The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone; the LORD has done
this, and it is marvelous in our eyes. This is the day the LORD has made; let us
rejoice and be glad in it. Christ is Risen! He is Risen indeed! Alleluia!

Confession and Absolution

We cannot enter God’s presence as we are. Our sinful condition falls short of the glory of God. Let us therefore give voice to our many sins, known and unknown, confessing our faults and failures to one another and to our almighty God Himself.

All: Most merciful God, I confess that I am by nature sinful and unclean. I have  sinned against You in thought, word, and deed by what I have done and by what I have left undone. I have not loved You with my whole heart; I have not loved my
neighbors as myself. I justly deserve Your present and eternal punishment. I am
sorry. As a family of believers, we bow before You in faith at the beginning of
this new day and we take refuge in the mercy You give to us through Your Son’s
triumphant victory over sin, death, and the grave. Forgive us, renew us, and lead
us. Enliven us by Your Holy Spirit. Fill our hearts with joy that we may walk by
faith this day and always to the glory of Your holy name. Amen.
Redeemed children of God, rejoice and be glad! God has not merely overlooked your
sin. He sent His Son to become one of us. He allowed His Son to die and pay for
every sin or yours and mine. On that first Easter morning through the empty tomb, our heavenly Father proclaimed to the world that He accepted His Son’s perfect payment for our sin. Because the risen King has conquered death and delivered us from our sins, our heavenly Father has forgiven and forgotten our sin in His Son. As a called and ordained servant of the risen Lord Jesus Christ, it is my joy this Easter morning, to announce His grace unto you. I forgive you all your sins, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Alleluia! Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia!

Prayer of the Day – Almighty God, through Your only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ, You have overcome death and opened the gate of everlasting life to us. Grant that we, who celebrate with joy the day of our Lord’s resurrection, may be raised from the
death of sin by Your life-giving Spirit; through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives
and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Hymn “He’s Risen, He’s Risen” LSB 480 (We stand for verse 5)

New Testament or Epistle Reading – 1 Corinthians 15:12-26 – But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?   If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised.  And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.  More than that, we are then found to be false witnesses about God, for we have testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead. But he did not raise him if in fact the dead are not raised.  For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost.   If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men.  But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who
have fallen asleep.  For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. But each in his own turn: Christ, the first fruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him.  Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power. For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death.

Verse 2 Timothy 1:10b

Alleluia. Christ Jesus abolished death and brought life and immortality to light
through the gospel. Alleluia.

Gospel reading Mark 16:1-8 – When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus body. Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb and they asked each other,  Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?  But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.  Dont be alarmed, he said.  You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.  Trembling and bewildered, the women went out and fled from the tomb. They said nothing to anyone, because they were afraid.

We Confess our Faith in our Lord and what His Resurrection means in our lives!

The Second Article of the Apostles Creed- All: I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From thence He will come to judge the living and the dead.
What does this mean?
All: I believe that Jesus Christ, true God, begotten of the Father from eternity,
and also true man, born of the virgin Mary, is my Lord, who has redeemed me, a
lost and condemned person, purchased and won me from all sins, from death,
and from the power of the devil; not with gold or silver, but with His holy,
precious blood and with His innocent suffering and death, that I may be His own
and live under Him in His kingdom and serve Him in everlasting righteousness,  innocence, and blessedness, just as He is risen from the dead, lives and reigns
to all eternity. This is most certainly true.

Hymn **vs1-4** “Christ the Lord Is Risen Today” LSB 469

Prayers of the Church
The Lord’s Prayer – Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven; give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.

Service of the Sacrament
Preface Isaiah 25:6-9

On this mountain the LORD Almighty will prepare a feast of rich food for all peoples, a banquet of aged wine- the best of meats and the finest of wines.
On this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet
that covers all nations; he will swallow up death forever.  The Sovereign LORD will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove the disgrace of his people from all the earth.  The LORD has spoken. In that day they will say, Surely this is our God; we trusted in him, and he saved us. This is the LORD, we trusted in him; let us
rejoice and be glad in his salvation.
