The same Lord who creates life is able, also, to bring life back from the grave. The Lord heard the prayer of Elijah and restored life to that young man. Today we confess that, though the rope of our lives will also end in death, yet through Christ we will be led out of the grave to eternal life.
The Lord comforted Elijah with His Word and then sent him back out to do what the Lord called him to do in the first place. The Lord also calls us, His Church, to proclaim His Word in the world, even as He comforts us through the same voice of His Word and Sacraments.
