‘THIS IS DAY OF JOY. OF HOPE
OF LIFE,” DECLARES PREACHER
Rev. L. A. Thomas Delivers Effective
Sermon at Matins Service Easter
Six o’clock matins services at St. James
Lutheran Church yesterday morning were
interesting and impressive as the sun
light of the early morning filtered through
the stained glass windows on the bowed
heads of the worshippers gathered “to do
homage to the risen Lord.’’
Rev. L. A. Thomas spoke impressive
ly,, on “Christ Risen,” bringing a message
in which he declared that "Christ risen
means victory. With the joyous Easter
song fresh on our lips, with Christ fresh
in our hearts, what can we want beside.
This is the day of joy, of hope, of life.”
• .Special numbers were rendered by the
choir, “The Love of Christ” by Emer
son. a traditional “Hallelujah” which
Frieda Hempel sang on her appearance
in' Concord, and a solo by Sam Goodman,
“I Know That My Redeemer Liveth” by
Handel. Miss Helen Patterson and Sam
Goodman did solo work in the anthems.
, Adult confirmation of five persoas was
made at this service. The text of Mr.
Thomas’ sermon was as follows.
-'Matthew 28:6: He is not here; for He
is' risen, even as He said. How unlike
this morning are you, worshippers of the
living God. to those who first came early
to the tomb of our Lord. “As love and
hope flow mingled down” they came. Sor
row and love are late to the couch and

and sorrow meet, or impracticle zeal com

heavy hearts were they driven away by
the oncoming darkness the evening of the
How restless they must have been, im
patient of the long weary hours of the
last day of the week. Our imagination
need not go afield to think of their busy
ing themselves with the preparation for
the next morning. Even Peter, after
he had seen the Lord, allowed his old
impetuosity. to get the better of him
while.he waited for His reappearance on
the banks of Galilee.
With all provision provided for the
honor which they wished to show the
buried Lord, these faithful women march
with the dawn towards the tomb;* As
an instance of the primal object of their
meditation on provision had been made
to remove the stone which eneolsed the
suplchre. If precaution had been made
by the Roman government so that the
most determined effort on the part qf
friend or foe could not remove it, how
would the feeble hands, weakened by.
the strain of sorrow’, expect to gain en
trance to the buried Rabboni?
BOt such often is love’s prodigality.
They are seeking first the King and the
Kingdom, assured that all other things
necessary would be administered unto
them. What faith. What love. What
measured devotion. “God chose the fool
ish things of the world that He might
put to shame them that are wise; and
God chose the weak things of the world,
that He might put to shame the things
that are strong; and the base things of
■ the world, and the things that are de
i spised, did God choose, yea, and the
things that are not, that He might bring
• to naught the things that are: that no
flesh should glory before god.” Never
were the words of God more perfectly
fulfilled than in this record.
So my fellow worshipers, so many of
whom have come here this morning, I
want us to meditated on and worship the
Risen Christ. Especially, you, precious
souls, new born children in God’s won
derful kingdom, yon who are going to be
confirmed, who are going to make your
public confession of your faith, trust and
■ hope in this-i same Christ, may the empty
tomb, the angel’s voice, the risen, appear
ing Lord, bring you a message that will
send you rejoicing not only today, but
all through the weary days of file, fill
you with a conviction that will ever be
■ undaunted, a faith that will never waver,
■ a love that will ever grow richer, a de
votion akin to that of these early wor
shipers. wholly set upon the Lord.
There are three thoughts which corse
- in our minds this morning, which we
shall present briefly, in order:
Christ risen: /
1. The central theme of salvation.
2. The perpetual joy of the Christian.
3. The effectual hope of eternity.
First—The central theme of salvation.
When Christ was bor nthe angels united
their songs with the morning stars and
sang: Joy to the world, the Lord is
come. In the advent, season we sing:
Brightest and best of the sons of the
morning. In- the Lenten season our
music assumes a minor, and the refrain:
Alas and Did My Savior Bleed, keeps
coming back to us as expressive of our
feeling. But on Easter morning, or re
joicing find expression in “victory”: The
strife is o’er, the battle done; the victory
of life is won; the song of triumph has
begun. Alleluia. Lift up your heads,
ye gates, and let the King of Glory come
In. Who is the King of Glory, the
Lord of Hosts? He is the King of
We rejoice in the birth of Christ, with
a joy unspeakable. Our hearts sorrow
ed with a holy- sorrow ill His’ passion
and sufferings, as the sacred Writer puts
it, we suffered with Him, At. the. cross
we felt the burden of our sins : roll away
when He said, “It is finished.’’ But
our assurance needs no staying np, our
joy knows no bounds when Christ is
risen. Paul declared that he was de
termined to know nothing save Jesus
Christ and is crucified. But in that
was included the, whole mediatorial word,
the whole redemptive work of Christ. So
he says, “And if Christ hath not been
raised then is our preaching vain, and
your faith is also vain,” Hopeless,
worthless, ye are yet in your sine, un
’ Rob the world of the risen Christ and
you take away all that you can ever
expect for salvation. A Christ who died
is a redeeming Christ, a Christ risen is
a saving Christ. But how can you be
lieve in the resurrection if yon do not
| believe in a Divine Christ? ’ If Christ
■be not Divine, as many teach now, how
can he rise of His own power? . If He
I rose not of His own power, then He can
not raise us. The resurrection of Christ

meaning attesting your faith is the whole
Christ, is His complete personality.
THE CONCORD DAILY TRIBUNE
Coming with such a well rounded, Simple
faith you receive the unquestioned as
surance of salvation^.
Second—The perpetual joy of the
Christian. That -was a simple message
of the angel’s. O, So quietly delivered
There are no fluorines, no attempt at
show, nor anything aimed at attracting
with what a thrill he was filled? What
vigor and certainty ids statement carries.
There is no disoussiijh, almost a reproof,
no not that but a Moving, sympathetic
message filled with the joyous news which
these people, which we want, but feared
to hope for. All so Divine, anil yet
how human. Christian, what a begin
ning of a new day, What a beginning of
a new life.
What thoughts do you suppose filled
their minds that day? What was the
feeling of each heart towards the word,
towards those disciples who fell by the
wayside, who fled in the hour of trial;
what was their thoughts towards the
memory of poor, miserable baragining
Judas; , what was their attitude towards
Caiaphas, Herod, Pilate, the Roman gov
ermtnt, the Jewish Sanhedrin? The
past to them was past. That was all
yesterday. Today. O, today all is joy.
Alleluia, He is Risen.
And you who have so recently made
your confession of this risen Savior, to
you He has come na the everliving- per
petual joy, springing np in your souls
every hour. So possessed should every
one of us become with this heavenly gift,
this Easter gift, that the world would
ring anew with the songs of joy. And
while we labor, while we strive, while
we suffer, like His faithful disciples in
the prison, raise the..hymns of joy that
we are not only counted worth to be
His, but. worthy to suffer for Him. Never
more shall we weep,<rr pine. He, has
come to wipe away ill tears. He is
risen. He is not here, come see the place
where He lay, but go and bear the glad
tidings of His resurrection.
Third—The effectual hope of eternity.
Eternity. Well may we use the word?
Have we not jnst been faced with the
fact of it?. . “Here lice” can never be
written on the tomb of man, it was not
written on Christ!} tomb. ' Death is
but a narrow connection between two
larger bodies on whiih for a brief mo
ment we balance ourselves then pass on
from one to the other. The resurrec
tion is but laying the foundation on which
our hope for the life to come is built
To Paul the future was indeed dark
without the risen Christ, it cannot be
brighter for us. If Christ’s body is
still in the rock-hewn tomb then is our
preaching vain, our sins are yet unfor
given, the dead have only returned to old \
mother earth from which they came, and 1
we are of all men most misreable. But !
Christ is risen. The empty tomb telle !
us; it cannot lie. Conviction tells us. i
All heaven bears witness to the fact J
This is our sure and only hope for eter- i
With this devotion and conviction J
born, not alone of an historical Christ ’(
but of a living Christ we are prepared ]
for whatever life may bring to us. Con
fident always that He ever liveth to I
make intercession form, I know that my J
Redeemer liveth, and while He livee no
evil can permanently, befall me, and that
I shall live also. Christ in the grave J
means that the price of our sin has been ,
met, Christ risen means victory. With
the joyous Easter song fresh on our lips,
with Christ fresh in our hearts, what
can we want beside? This is the day of
joy, of hope, of life.
