He is Risen!
Hallelujah, He is Risen!
Christ is Risen indeed!
Lift up your hearts!
We lift them up to the Lord!
Not only do we only know God through Jesus Christ, but we only know ourselves through Jesus Christ; we only know life and death through Jesus Christ. Apart from Jesus Christ we cannot know the meaning of our life or our death, of God or of ourselves. Thus without Scripture, whose only object is Christ, we know nothing and can see nothing but obscurity and confusion in the nature of God and in nature itself. (Pascal’s Pensees, 417/548)
“For in him we live and move and find our being…” (Apostle Paul, Mars Hill sermon, Acts 17:28)
“…Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades.” (Jesus Christ, Lord and Savior, Revelation 1:17-18)
