Resurrection Sunday

Holy Week: Day Eight

Resurrection Sunday

April 1, 2018

> > > Please read I Corinthians 15: 55-58

Easter is a season of great gladness for those who know Christ. But for those who are without "the light of the knowledge of God's glory" (2 Corinthians 4:6), there is nothing to rejoice over.

Jesus left us with the great hope and certainty that He is going to return to bring a new Heaven and a new earth where, we are told, there will be no more sorrow, trouble, or death for those who have believed and followed Him. There will be trouble, sorrow, and suffering for those who have neglected or rejected Him.

As Christians, our great task is to obey the command to tell the whole world about Christ crucified, buried, yet risen again. My prayer for you during this season of the year, when we meditate on our Savior's great sacrifice for us on the cross, is that you will be filled with great peace and hope, because "He is risen!" That is the Good News.

A Question to Ponder:

As you follow Christ, are you obeying His command to tell others that He is risen indeed?

Today's Hymn

Today's Hymn:


"He has risen, just as He said." (Matthew 28:6)

Jesus Christ is risen today, Alleluia!
Our triumphant holy day, Alleluia!
Who did once, upon the cross, Alleluia!
Suffer to redeem our loss, Alleluia!

Hymns of praise then let us sing, Alleluia!
Unto Christ, our heavenly King, Alleluia!
Who endured the cross and grave, Alleluia!
Sinners to redeem and save, Alleluia!

But the pains which He endured, Alleluia!
Our salvation hath procured, Alleluia!
Now above the sky He's king, Alleluia!
Where the angels ever sing, Alleluia!

Sing we to our God above, Alleluia!
Praise eternal as His love, Alleluia!
Praise Him, all you heavenly host, Alleluia!
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, Alleluia!


The Choir of King's College, Cambridge, sings the famous Easter hymn Jesus Christ is risen.

President Trump Celebrates Easter

President Trump Celebrates Easter:

A Report from the President's Prayer Team

The first family is in Palm Beach, Florida, for the Easter weekend. They are expected to attend services at the Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea in Palm Beach. This is part of their annual tradition and is the same church where Donald and Melania Trump were married. It is also the same church where Barron Trump was baptized.

There is no public schedule available today for the president or first lady. In preparation for the Passover and Easter celebrations, President Trump released an official address which can be seen in the video below.
