Sunday was a day the Lord had made, we rejoiced and were glad in it. Of course The Resurrection was the topic of our Sunday school lesson and as you may have experienced wherever you attended services this past Lord’s Day our morning worship service was on the same theme from a different text in scripture.
The Resurrection account in Matthew 28 was the source of our morning text and the subject of His being risen indeed. The reason for our hope of salvation being the absolute certainty of His resurrection and ascension. The founding premise of every other religion being put forward by a dead founder. Our faith on the other hand having at its foundation the Resurrected Christ.
The founding fathers of the church being willing to lay down their lives in witness to the fact of his Resurrection and ascension, before their very eyes. Men do not offer their lives to support a lie. And when he was risen he had them to touch him, he ate with them, for a period of forty days He stayed with them, and then ascended, in their presence, as undeniable proof that He was the Redeemer, and rightly our Lord.
