Now we’re going to read from Luke’s Gospel chapter 16, if you care to follow it, verse 19. A passage in which Jesus said more about the life after death than anywhere else in all His teaching. It’s in the form of a story or a parable, but it’s true to life and the afterlife.

Luke 16:19-31: ‘There was a rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen, and who feasted sumptuously every day. And at his gate lay a poor man named Lazarus, full of sores, who desired to be fed with what fell from the rich man’s table. Moreover, the dogs came and licked his sores. The poor man died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom.

And the rich man also died, and was buried. And in Hades, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus in his bosom. And he called out, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy upon me, and send Lazarus to dip the end of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am in anguish in this flame.’

But Abraham said, ‘Son, remember that you in your lifetime received your good things, and Lazarus in like manner evil things; but now he is comforted here, and you are in anguish. And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, in order that those who would pass from here to you may not be able, and none may cross from there to us.’

And he said, ‘Then I beg you, father, to send him to my father’s house, for I have five brothers, so that he may warn them, lest they also come into this place of torment.’

But Abraham said, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets, let them hear them.’

And he said, ‘No, father Abraham, but if someone goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’

And he said to him, ‘If they do not hear Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be convinced if someone should rise from the dead.’”

Let us pray.

Our loving Heavenly Father, we are dealing with serious subjects on these Sunday mornings, and we are very conscious of how much we need the aid of the Holy Spirit if we are to approach them properly, with open minds, neither exaggerating nor avoiding what You have revealed as true of the future. We pray, O Lord, that we may be ready and willing to hear whatever You have to say to us. We pray for the gift of discernment, that we may be able to recognize when human words come as Your word and when they do not. We thank You for revealing to us enough all that we need to know to prepare. We thank You that You have hidden so much from us so that we do not become so obsessed or preoccupied with the future that we become useless in the present. And we ask again this morning that You will meet the need of each one of us. We are amazed at the way in which You do this in a service like this. Each of us is at a different stage in the road. Each of us has had different experience of life. We have different questions, different problems, different fears. But we pray that somewhere in this morning’s service, every one of us may have a word that comes straight into our hearts from heaven itself, by which we will be able to live and by which we can face the future without fear, but with a strong faith and expectancy. And we ask this in the name of Him who rose from the dead, conquered death, brought life and immortality to light, and brought a living hope into our hearts, even Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
