My favorite quote at Easter is "why seek ye the living among the dead' In St. Luke chapter 24 verses 1-7 it says "Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.
And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.
And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.
And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments: And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, why seek ye the living among the dead?
He is not here , but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.
In the song "He lives" it says "I serve a living saviour, he's in the world today"
Many people, (of whom I am one) have experienced the Resurrection personally. Its not hard to believe this story of the empty tomb because we have witnessed it ourselves. And we know He lives even today because we have met him face to face.
Easter is a very sacred celebration, one that is the very basis and proof of Christianity and I'm very proud to be a part of the celebration.
We at the Pryor Church are planning a sunrise service with a continental breakfast following. Pray that we have many visitors and a witness of the resurrection to everyone that comes.
In other news, we were able to attend the Youth convention in Russellville, Ar. over the past weekend. It was great! Our regional overseer Brother Dewayne Smith came to our service on Sunday night with his son Brandon. It was good to visit with them and of course we went to our favorite mexican restaurant Las Fuentes for a great meal and fun fellowship. What fun we had!
Well in case I don't get a chance to post again before Easter I hope everyone has a blessed Easter weekend.
