Title: Preparation for the divine service for the departed – Redemption brings eternal joy.
Text verse: Psalm 126: 1
When the Lord brought back the captivity of Zion, we were like those who dream.
Redemption brings eternal joy.
- For mankind in captivity to sin, redemption means returning into the fellowship of God.
- The doctrine that salvation is also possible for the departed is guaranteed and illustrated in the New Testament.
