The Sunday of the Rich Man and Lazarus – Trinity I

02 June 2024


Faith Trusts in Christ for Life Eternal

When the beggar Lazarus died, he was carried by the angels to Abraham‚Äôs bosom. For he was truly Abraham‚Äôs seed. Like Abraham, he believed in the Lord, and the Lord ‚Äúcounted it to him as righteousness‚ÄĚ (Gen. 15:6). The name Lazarus means ‚ÄúGod is my help.‚ÄĚ The unnamed rich man, on the other hand, did not love and trust in God. For he evidently cared little for the beggar at his gate. And ‚Äúhe who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen‚ÄĚ (1 John 4:20). He who loved and trusted in possessions and prestige died and was in torments in Hades (Luke 16:19‚Äď31). Repentance and faith are worked only through Moses and the prophets‚ÄĒthat is, the Word of God, for it points us to Christ. Only through His death and resurrection are we brought the comfort of life everlasting.
