Happy Easter

Happy Resurrection Sunday everyone. Here are a few neat quotes I thought I share.

The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances. ~Robert Flatt

Where man sees but withered leaves, God sees sweet flowers growing. ~Albert Laighton

“The highest act of love is the giving of the best gift, and, if necessary, at the greatest cost, to the least deserving. That’s what God did. At the loss of His Son’s life to the totally undeserving, God gave the best gift – the display of the glory of Christ who is the image of God.” [John Piper]

"Tomb, thou shalt not hold Him longer;
Death is strong, but Life is stronger;
Stronger than the dark, the light;
Stronger than the wrong, the right;
Faith and Hope triumphant say
Christ will rise on Easter Day."
Phillips Brooks, An Easter Carol

Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in spring-time. ~Martin Luther

Nothing in my hand I bring, Simply to Thy cross I cling" [Augustus M. Toplady, Hymn: Rock of Ages]
