Christ Is Risen!

“Let us always remember that the end of the resurrection is eternal happiness, of whose excellence scarcely the minutist part can be described by all that human tongues can say. For though we are truly told that the kingdom of God will be full of light, and gladness, and felicity, and glory, yet the things meant by these words remain most remote from sense, and as it were involved in enigma, until the day arrive on which he will manifest his glory to us face to face.” John Calvin

“Now let the heavens be joyful,
Let earth her song begin:
Let the round world keep triumph,
And all that is therein;
Invisible and visible,
Their notes let all things blend,
For Christ the Lord is risen

Our joy that hath no end.”

John of Damascus

“All living things--humans, animals, plants--decay and die, but Christ overcame death. No one else in history, not even the most famous and influential of men, has ever done that. Jesus Christ's bodily resurrection from the dead is the crowning proof of Christianity.” Henry Morris
