Easter

Easter is the demonstration of God that life is essentially spiritual and timeless.  ~Charles M. Crowe

Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life.  ~S.D. Gordon

The story of Easter is the story of God’s wonderful window of divine surprise.  ~Carl Knudsen

“Easter is…
Joining in a birdsong,
Eying an early sunrise,
Smelling yellow daffodils,
Unbolting windows and doors,
Skipping through meadows,
Cuddling newborns,
Hoping, believing,
Reviving spent life,
Inhaling fresh air,
Sprinkling seeds along furrows,
Tracking in the mud.
Easter is the soul’s first taste of spring.”Richelle E. Goodrich

But from this earth, this grave, this dust,
My God shall raise me up, I trust.
~Walter Raleigh

The story of Easter is the story of God’s wonderful window of divine surprise.  ~Carl Knudsen

“If man had his way, the plan of redemption would be an endless and bloody conflict. In reality, salvation was bought not by Jesus’ fist, but by His nail-pierced hands; not by muscle but by love; not by vengeance but by forgiveness; not by force but by sacrifice. Jesus Christ our Lord surrendered in order that He might win; He destroyed His enemies by dying for them and conquered death by allowing death to conquer Him.”A W Tozer

Easter says you can put truth in a grave, but it won’t stay there.  ~Clarence W. Hall

“The gifts of the Master are these: freedom, life, hope, new direction, transformation, and intimacy with God. If the cross was the end of the story, we would have no hope. But the cross isn’t the end. Jesus didn’t escape from death; he conquered it and opened the way to heaven for all who will dare to believe. The truth of this moment, if we let it sweep over us, is stunning. It means Jesus really is who he claimed to be, we are really as lost as he said we are, and he really is the only way for us to intimately and spiritually connect with God again.”Steven James

Easter says you can put truth in a grave, but it won’t stay there.  ~Clarence W. Hall

“Remember Jesus of Nazareth, staggering on broken feet out of the tomb toward the Resurrection, bearing on his body the proud insignia of the defeat which is victory, the magnificent defeat of the human soul at the hands of God.”F. Buechner

And he departed from our sight that we might return to our heart, and there find Him.  For He departed, and behold, He is here.  ~St Augustine

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.  ~Henry Knox Sherrill

The story of Easter is the story of God’s wonderful window of divine surprise.  ~Carl Knudsen
