Sermon: No Escape. May 13, 2018

May 15, 2018

Click here to watch, read, listen to, or download my sermon from the Seventh Sunday of Easter, May 13, 2018, preached at Grace Lutheran Church, River Forest, IL.

Everyone loves to get away from time to time; nothing wrong with that. But as we near the end of the Easter season, we may well wonder why Jesus has returned to the Father without bringing us along. Why does he leave? Why are we left behind? The answer lies in God’s love for this world. The work of restoring and reclaiming the world for God is completed in Jesus’ death and resurrection, but it is through us that God will bring this good news to all the world. We don’t get to escape from the very real needs that we see in our neighbors, but neither is there any danger that we will escape from God’s love for us. We are in the world, but we belong to God.
