In the bonds of Death He lay Who for our offence was slain; But the Lord is risen to-day, Christ hath brought us life again, Wherefore let us all rejoice, Singing loud, with cheerful voice, Hallelujah!
Apart from the resurrection of Jesus, the eschatological orientation of the church appears as the spoke of a wheel without a hub.- Richard R. Niebuhr
Where man sees but withered leaves, God sees sweet flowers growing.
The stone was rolled away from the door,
Not to permit Christ to come out,
But to enable the disciples to go in.”
When i’m lifted up, I shall draw all men to myself. His assurance has risen us in EASTER to salvation,love,peace,joy,hope & Breakthru in our life in JESUS REXURECTION.
Spring bursts to-day, For Christ is risen and all the earth’s at play.Christina G. Rossetti
The fasts are done; the Aves said;
The moon has filled her horn
And in the solemn night I watch
Before the Easter morn.
So pure, so still the starry heaven,
So hushed the brooding air,
I could hear the sweep of an angel’s wings
If one should earthward fare.
~Edna Dean Proctor, “Easter Morning”
Let every man and woman count himself immortal.
Let him catch the revelation of Jesus in his resurrection.
Let him say not merely, “Christ is risen,” but “I shall rise.” – Phillips Brooks
Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in spring-time. – Martin Luther
