Sunday, April 1, 2018

On this Sunday, we remember in an extra special way the glorious gospel fact of Jesus’ resurrection from the dead. He arose, as He said!  Jesus’ triumphant resurrection verifies and guarantees all the gospel promises of God in and through Christ Jesus.  No wonder Paul writes thus to Timothy in II Timothy 2:8, “Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel.” A warm welcome to all as we gather here to worship God as revealed in Scripture and in the crucified and risen Redeemer!   

Quotes to consider:

“[Jesus’] resurrection is a fact better attested than any event recorded in any history, whether ancient or modern.” C.H. Spurgeon

“If the historical is something other than the Jesus who died for sins, was buried, and raised to life again, then He was a failure and a fraud, and we are mistaken in our devotion to Him.” K. DeYoung

“Thou art coming to a King, Large petitions with thee bring;

For His grace and power are such, None can ever ask too much.” John Newton

“God, in his wisdom, spent far more time telling Moses how to build the tabernacle than He did telling us how He created the universe. He rightly understood that science and our own consciences would make it self evident that He did.”
