Easter says you can put truth in a grave, but it won’t stay there.
—Clarence W. Hall
The stone was rolled away from the door, not to permit Christ to come out, but to enable the disciples to go in.
We live and die; Christ died and lived!
Do not abandon yourselves to despair: We are the Easter people, and Hallelujah is our song.
—Pope John Paul II
Christ has not only spoken to us by his life, but has also spoken for us by his death.
If Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.
—1 Corinthians 15:14
Jesus did not die on the cross just so we could live comfortable, well-adjusted lives. His purpose is far deeper: He wants to make us like himself before he takes us to heaven. This is our greatest privilege, our immediate responsibility and our ultimate destiny.
Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in spring-time.
Our old history ends with the cross; our new history begins with the resurrection.
Easter is always the answer to “my God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me!”
We must not forget that it wasn’t the Jews that put him on the cross, and it wasn’t the Romans. It was my sins, it was your sins, the sins of this world.
A dead Christ I must do everything for; a living Christ does everything for me.
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.”
“He is risen; he is not here.”
“I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?”
—Jesus Christ—John 11:25, 26
