*From a sermon for Misericordias Domini (Second Sunday after Easter) on John 10:11-18*
We have heard His voice in His Word as given by the Spirit. We have heard Him call our names in Holy Baptism and wrap them in His own name. We have heard His promise and in Him we know also His Father. The charge He was given, to save us, He has fulfilled –– whether we are “baby daddys,” “prostitutes,” “Gentiles,” or “racists.” He is good. He is kalos. And He is risen. He is risen indeed. Hallelujah!
