RESURRECTION DAY MESSAGE
Here we are at the Resurrection – but what does it mean for us and to us?
Ladell Kirk found this in 1001 Illustrations from Pulpit and Planform by Aquilla Webb

RESURRECTION – COMFORT OF
I once stood holding the hand of a mother and together we looked on the sleeping face of a lovely girl who passed away in her twentieth year. “Farewell, my sweet daughter,” the mother said. “I wish you joy. You have gone to see the Saviour and be with Him. I shall have you again when He pleases. Farewell, till we meet again”.
That daughter had been devoted in her girlhood to loving work for other girls poorer and less fortunate than herself. Her mother tool up the work the youthful hands laid down, and carried it forward day by day for the sake of her child in heaven. That mother was comforted; she believed in the life everlasting, she knew and dwelt with the risen Christ.
What should we do in this world of loss and change without the comfort of the resurrection? –
From Christian Intelligencer.
“If Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain and your faith is also vain”. 1 Cor. 15:14
Let’s remember some of the many hymns we have learned—-
“My Hope is Built on Nothing Less”
“In the Sweet By and By”
“A Mansion Over the Hilltop”
“Will the Circle Be Unbroken”
“O For a Faith That Will Not Shrink”
“Up From the Grave HE Arose”
Have a Blessed Resurrection Day – Enjoy the JOY HIS Resurrection brings:
