The Cost of Redemption

Sermon On
Passion Sunday 2014

During the season of Passiontide, we see the cost of our Redemption.  The statues are veiled and every consolation is removed from us so that our attention may be focused on the sufferings of Christ alone.  We see in the Gospel the sin against the Holy Ghost in which one maliciously and deliberately interprets what is good as something evil.  Those guilty of this sin are the ones not worthy to receive forgiveness and will “die in their sin.”  In the face of such wickedness, seen especially in our own time, we should cling all the more loyally and faithfully to our suffering Savior.
