The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances.
Easter is the demonstration of God that life is essentially spiritual and timeless.?
Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in spring-time.
The story of Easter is the story of God’s wonderful window of divine surprise.
We live and die; Christ died and lived!
Easter is a time to rejoice, be thankful, be assured that all is forgiven so life extends beyond the soil of earth.
Earth’s saddest day and gladdest day were just three days apart.
The joyful news that He is risen does not change the contemporary world. Still before us lie work, discipline, sacrifice. But the fact of Easter gives us the spiritual power to do the work, accept the discipline, and make the sacrifice.
The great gift of Easter is hope – Christian hope which makes us have that confidence in God, in his ultimate triumph, and in his goodness and love, which nothing can shake.
A man who was completely innocent, offered himself as a sacrifice for the good of others, including his enemies, and became the ransom of the world. It was a perfect act.
