Trinity 16
1 Kings 17:17-24 | Ephesians 3:13-21 | Luke 7:11-17

A large funeral procession carrying the only son of a widow is confronted by another large procession, Jesus and His followers. Death and Life meet face to face at the gate of the city (Gospel for the week, Luke 7:11–17). Filled with compassion, Jesus touches the coffin and speaks His creative words of life, “Young man, I say to you, arise.” Jesus does what is neither expected nor requested. For through Christ, God the Father “is able to do far more abundantly than all we ask or think” (Epistle for the week, Eph. 3:14–21). Jesus bore our death in His body that we may share in His resurrection. “To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”
