On this Resurrection Sunday, pastor Ed preaches from 1 John 3:4-10. As the storm clouds of World War II were approaching, German Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer preached a sermon on November 26, 1939, entitled “Death Is Swallowed Up in Victory.” He brought his message to a close with these words: When dark hours and when the darkest hour comes over us, then we want to hear the voice of Jesus Christ calling in our ear: victory is won. Death is swallowed up in victory. Take comfort. And may God grant that then we will be able to say: I believe in the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. It is in this faith that we want to live and die. (Bonhoeffer, The Collected Sermons, 210; emphasis in original)
