Our Lord has written the promise of resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in springtime.
We live and die; Christ died and lived!
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.
If Jesus rose from the dead, then you have to accept all he said.
Christ the Lord is risen to-day, Sons of men and angels say. Raise your joys and triumphs high; Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply.
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."
Be thou comforted, little dog, Thou too in Resurrection shall have a little golden tail.
The great gift of Easter is hope - Christian hope which makes us have that confidence in God, in his ultimate triumph, and in his goodness and love, which nothing can shake.
To a Christian, Easter Sunday means everything, when we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life.
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.
The resurrection asserts a truth which is by no means always written legibly for all men on the face of nature. It tells us that the spiritual is higher than the material; that in this universe spirit counts for more than matter.
God proved His love on the Cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, 'I love you.'
All your losses will be made up to you in the resurrection, provided you continue faithful. By the vision of the Almighty I have seen it.
The primary source of the appeal of Christianity was Jesus - His incarnation, His life, His crucifixion, and His resurrection.
Death is strong, but Life is stronger.
Christ is risen from the dead!
You can have either the Resurrection or you can have Liberace. But you can't have both.
A man who was completely innocent, offered himself as a sacrifice for the good of others, including his enemies, and became the ransom of the world. It was a perfect act.
Every parting gives a foretaste of death, every reunion a hint of the resurrection.
