Rev. James W. Moore shares the following story
from Some Things Are To Good Not To Be True.
Her name was Carol. She was the organist at her church.
She was an outstanding musician, but she did something
no organist should ever do. She overslept on Easter morning
and missed the sunrise service.
She was so embarrassed. Of course, the minister and
the church forgave her. They teased her about it a little,
but it was done lovingly and in good fun. However, the
next Easter, her phone rang at 5:00 in the morning.
Jolted awake by the loud ringing, she scrambled to answer it.
It was the minister, and he said,"Carol, it's Easter morning!
The Lord is risen! ...
And I suggest you do the same!"
The message is clear: We too can be resurrected.
Christ shares his resurrection with us.
He rises, and so can we.
We too can have new life. We too can make a new start.
We too can rise out of those tombs that try to imprison us!
He is not here; He has risen, just as he said.
Come and see the place where he lay.
