Easter Quotes That Inspire Me

The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances. ~Robert Flatt


Easter says you can put truth in a grave, but it won't stay there. ~Clarence W. Hall


It is the hour to rend thy chains,
The blossom time of souls. ~Katherine Lee Bates


The joyful news that He is risen does not change the contemporary world. Still before us lie work, discipline, sacrifice. But the fact of Easter gives us the spiritual power to do the work, accept the discipline, and make the sacrifice. ~Henry Knox Sherrill


But from this earth, this grave, this dust,
My God shall raise me up, I trust. ~Walter Raleigh



We live and die; Christ died and lived! ~John Stott



Tomb, thou shalt not hold Him longer;
Death is strong, but Life is stronger;
Stronger than the dark, the light;
Stronger than the wrong, the right...
~Phillips Brooks, "An Easter Carol"


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


Wonderful blessings!

Thanks, Angel for the suggestion. On after thought, I should have included at least one Bible verse. Next time I'll try to remember. :)
