04/20/19 Weekend Grif.Net – Reflections on Easter

God proved His =
love on the Cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God =
saying to the world, ‘I love you.’ –
Billy =
Graham

 

God loves each =
of us as if there were only one of us. –
Saint =
Augustine

 

Outside of the =
cross of Jesus Christ, there is no hope in this world. That cross and =
resurrection at the core of the Gospel is the only hope for humanity. =
Wherever you go, ask God for wisdom on how to get that Gospel in, even =
in the toughest situations of life. –
Ravi =
Zacharias

 

The Bible =
tells us that Jesus Christ came to do three things. He came to have your =
past forgiven, give purpose for living, and a home in Heaven. – =
Rick Warren

 

Let every man =
and woman count himself immortal. Let him catch the revelation of Jesus =
in his resurrection. Let him say not merely, ‘Christ is risen,’ but ‘I =
shall rise.’ –
Phillips Brooks

 

The great gift =
of Easter is hope – Christian hope which makes us have that confidence =
in God, in his ultimate triumph, and in his goodness and love, which =
nothing can shake. –
Basil Hume

 

The primary =
source of the appeal of Christianity was always Jesus – His incarnation, =
His life, His crucifixion, and His resurrection. –
Kenneth =
Scott LaTourette

 

The first =
thing that stuck in the minds of the disciples was not the empty tomb, =
but rather the empty grave clothes – undisturbed in form and position. – =
Josh McDowell

 

What makes you =
a Christian is whether or not you really are in accord with biblical =
theology and whether you know Jesus Christ as your Savior. – =
Walter Martin

 

Even if you’re =
not Christian, just from being in our culture you know Jesus and =
resurrection and redemption. –
Trey Parker

 

There is only =
one secure foundation: a genuine, deep relationship with Jesus Christ, =
which will carry you through any and all turmoil. No matter what storms =
are raging all around, you’ll stand firm if you stand on His love. – =
Charles Stanley

 

Love always =
involves responsibility and love always involves sacrifice. And we do =
not really love Christ unless we are prepared to face His task and to =
take up His Cross. –
William Barclay

 

During the =
first 13 centuries after the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem, no one thought =
of setting up a creche to celebrate Christmas. The pre-eminent Christian =
holiday was Easter, not Christmas. –
Nancy =
Pearcey

 

Easter may =
seem boring to children, and it is blessedly unencumbered by the silly =
fun that plagues Christmas. Yet it contains the one thing needful for =
every human life: the good news of Resurrection. –
Frederica =
Mathewes-Green
