Trinity Lutheran Church (WELS, Woodbridge, VA) Weekly sermons from Trinity Lutheran Church, Woodbridge, VA

April 13, 2017  
The sermon for Maunday Thursday, April 13, 2017. The sermon text is based on 1 Corinthians 11:23-28
 
Today's Focus: Maunday Thursday derives its name from the words Jesus spoke to his disciples on this evening: "A new command I give you: Love one another" (John 13:34). The Latin translation for "command" in this passage is "mandatum", where we get "Maundy" from. On Maundy Thursday, Christ gave a mandate to his followers - to love one another as he has loved us. He demonstrates the full extent of his love by humbly washing his disciple's feet and by feeding them his very flesh for their salvation. Clearly, Christ loves us more than life. Reconciled to God through the flesh and blood of Christ, we are empowered to follow his command to love one another.
 
Sermon given by Pastor Jon Bergemann.
