Scripture Cuttings:
Isaiah 25:6-9 It will be said on that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, so that he might save us. This is the Lord for whom we have waited; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.
Psalm 118:1-2, 13-22 I was pushed hard, so that I was falling, but the Lord helped me. The Lord is my strength and my might; he has become my salvation.
1 Corinthians 15:1-11 Now I would remind you, brothers and sisters, of the good news that I proclaimed to you, which you in turn received, in which also you stand, through which also you are being saved, if you hold firmly to the message that I proclaimed to you—unless you have come to believe in vain.
John 20:1-18 “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him.”

All may make the sign of the cross in remembrance of baptism
as the presiding minister begins:
P:  In the Name of the Father, and the Son, + and the Holy Spirit.
C: Amen

P:  There is Good News here today,
but we need to be honest with God
to understand what it means for us. (pause for reflection: honest- without our disguise)
  Lord God...
C: we are not like the first witnesses of the Resurrection.
We do not pursue you as the true center of our lives.
    We do not treat the good news with utmost importance.
        We do not share it with others.
We do not trust the Resurrection to change our lives,
    and see no urgency in the redemption you raise up.
In fact, we can even let early mornings
     deter us from being willing servants of Jesus.
Lord we have become disconnected
  and we are not ready for your Glory.
Forgive us Lord for the sins we know,
save from the sins we hide. (pause for reflection and self-examination)

P:  There is Good News this morning, because we do not own a single fear, or doubt, or hesitation, the Lord our God does not overcome. It is by God’s own faithfulness that Jesus Christ died for our sins and that he was buried and that he was raised on the third day. For Christ's sake our sins are forgiven. By the power of the Holy Spirit we too are to become witnesses- apostles to proclaim the Resurrection of our Lord so that all may believe. To the Glory of the Father, and the Son, + and the Holy Spirit.
C: Amen. -wjw

P:  The peace of the Lord be with you always!

C: And also with you!
