Sunday Considerations: Glorious Resurrection

Previously, I shared some pre-Christian Good Friday thoughts. My aim was to encourage people this Easter weekend to consider the sins – their sins – that put Jesus on the cross.  For further consideration this Easter, below are some insights from Charles Spurgeon on Jesus’ resurrection. His resurrection is glorious in its effects. He was “delivered for our offenses,” but, “He was raised again for our justification.” In death He discharged our debt. In Resurrection He exhibited the receipt of all our liabilities! He was Surety for us and, therefore, He smarted and went down to the prison of the grave. But by …keep reading »


Sunday Considerations: The Resurrection

This Sunday Easter is celebrated here in America. Some Christians are bothered by the Easter holiday and prefer to call this time of year Resurrection Day. Others avoid any special celebration whatsoever. Of course, every Sunday is a celebration of the resurrection of our – the only – Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Like it or not, Easter is a special time of year and provides a potential to reach more people for Christ since many will attend a Christian who don’t normally attend.

Now if you divide that up into 40-hour workweeks and allow two weeks for vacation, it breaks down into a full year of …keep reading »

And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen.

Christ Our Righteousness Is Risen

We have finished the doctrine of Christ’s humiliation, wherein the Sun of righteousness appeared to you as a setting sun, gone out of sight; but as the sun when it is gone down to us, begins a new day in another part of the world, so Christ, having finished his course and work in this world, rises again, and that, in order to the acting another glorious part of his work in the world above. In his death, he was in a sense totally eclipsed; but in his resurrection, he begins to recover his light and glory again. An angel …keep reading »
