Here are some powerful quotes to help us continue to celebrate our Easter celebration from last Sunday. (They are borrowed from CHURCH LEADERS and Toni Ridgaway) I found them to be thoughtful and uplifting.
John Stott – We live and die; Christ died and lived!
Pope John Paul II – Do not abandon yourselves to despair: We are the Easter people, and Hallelujah is our song.
Peter Marshall – The stone was rolled away from the door, not to permit Christ to come out, but to enable the disciples to go in.
I Corinthians 15:14 – If Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.
Rick Warren – Jesus did not die on the cross just so we could live comfortable, well-adjusted lives. His purpose is far deeper: He wants to make us like himself before he takes us to heaven. This is our greatest privilege, our immediate responsibility and our ultimate destiny.
Martin Luther – Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in spring-time.
Watchman Nee – Our old history ends with the cross; our new history begins with the resurrection.
Madeleine L’Engle – Easter is always the answer to “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me!
Franklin Graham – We must not forget that it wasn’t the Jews that put him on the cross, and it wasn’t the Romans. It was my sins, it was your sins, the sins of this world.
Andrew Murray – A dead Christ I must do everything for; a living Christ does everything for me.
Phillips Brooks – Let every man and woman count himself immortal. Let him catch the revelation of Jesus in his resurrection.

Bob, I have always liked Peter Marshall’s quote. I originally heard it a little different though. “ The stone wasn’t moved for Jesus but for our benefit “ I hope that Jan and you are well amidst this crazy weather. Gil
