Easter Sunday has come and His Church rejoices in the beauty and wonder of the resurrection. Christ has defeated sin, death, and the devil himself, and the heavens and earth celebrate for weeks to come. The season of Easter is truly a time of rejoicing in Christ’s victory. Read C. F. W. Walther’s sermon on the true joy of Easter below from Gospel Sermons I .
As Good Friday approaches, the Church prepares for the most somber occasion of the year: Jesus’ death. But in mourning, Christians know that His death also brings His resurrection. His suffering takes the burden of sin off the sinner’s shoulders. Read C. F. W. Walther’s Good Friday sermons from Gospel Sermons, Volume 1 below to see why we can rejoice in our mourning.

In a few short days, we will be celebrating the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. This is a monumental event, and C. F. W. Walther agrees. As a devotion for this significant celebration, we read Walther’s Christmas Day sermon below from Gospel Sermons Volume 1.
