Readings & Scripture

PREPARATION: John 3:16-17
LEADER: 16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
ALL: 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.

CENTRAL TEXT: John 20:19-23
19 On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” 20 When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. 21 Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.” 22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you withhold forgiveness from any, it is withheld.”

BENEDICTION: Based on 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17
LEADER: Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, 17 comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word. The peace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
ALL: And also with you.
