CQOD: 04/16/06 -- Collyer: Easter

Christian Quotation of the Day

April 16, 2006
    But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. 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. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise."
    -- Luke 24:1-7 (ESV)

    Morning breaks upon the tomb,
    Jesus scatters all its gloom.
    Day of triumph through the skies--
    See the glorious Savior rise.

    Christians! Dry your flowing tears,
    Chase those unbelieving fears;
    Look on his deserted grave,
    Doubt no more his power to save.

    Ye who are of death afraid,
    Triumph in the scattered shade:
    Drive your anxious cares away,
    See the place where Jesus lay.
    ... William Bengo Collyer (1782-1854)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have broken the curse we were under. Show me where I must spread the good news.
