Henry: celebrating the resurrection

Sunday, March 10, 2019
    And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them, Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon.
    —Luke 24:33-34 (KJV)
    [My father’s] common salutation of his family or friends, on the Lord’s day in the morning, was that of the primitive Christians:—The Lord is risen; He is risen indeed; making it his chief business on that day to celebrate the memory of Christ’s resurrection.
    ... Matthew Henry (1662-1714), The life of the Rev. Philip Henry, A.M. [1697], London: B. J. Holdsworth, 1825, p. 50 (see the book)
    See also Luke 24:33-34; Matt. 28:5-7; Mark 16:6-7; 1 Cor. 15:3-8,14
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your people await Your return.
