Title: Divine service for the departed
Text verse: Isaiah 55: 1
Ho! Everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
God grants salvation to those who seek fellowship with Him.
- Spiritual thirst is common to both the living and the dead.
- God offers salvation to both the living and the dead without the need for them to make any sort of advance payment.
- Those who receive salvation believe in Jesus Christ, are born again out of water and the Spirit, and allow themselves to be strengthened by Holy Communion.
