Christ's resurrection - He is Alive!!

Greetings and welcome to 'The Twin Towers of Faith!' We all need to look Christward and the writings of great men of faith can help us in this endeavor. To those who visit this blog and are Christians, I trust these quotes and musings of men of God will help us to think of Christ and the things of the faith. For those of you who do not know our wonderful Saviour, we encourage you to read the Bible and to seek Christ with all your heart. Only trusting in Jesus Christ alone can save! So let us look Christward today and desire Him above all!!

"How if Christ is proclaimed as raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain. We are even found to be misrepresenting God, because we testified about God that he raised Christ, whom he did not raise if it is true that the dead are not raised. For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If in this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied. ! "

1 Corinthians 15:12-19 ESV

Resurrection Hymn
Sing, O Church, your glorious praises,
Christ, your Lord, rose from the dead!
He, the proof that God will save us;
Jesus our own glorious Head!
He our Master! He our Saviour!
He the Victor over death!
Raised by God to reign eternal,
Never did He see decay.
Now He reigns from Heav'n supernal;
Death no longer holds its sway.
O, the power of the victory,
How His grace and love display!
What a wondrous consolation.
Jesus' death was not in vain.
Raised as God's own confirmation,
That the Son broke sin's domain.
He is Living! He is Living!
Shout forth now this glad refrain!
Men will mock and disbelieve Him;
Worry not at their refrain.
They shall bow the knee before Him,
To their sorrow and their bane.
He's the Champion! Mighty Conqueror!
All will bow before His Name!
Praise Him for the grace He gave you,
To repent and to believe.
Praise Him for His love that saved you,
Calling you Him to receive.
Praise the Saviour! Risen Saviour!
Worship Christ the risen King!

Rejoice friends, Christ is alive! Thank God for the 'grace He gave you, To repent and to believe.' Glory be to God! Think of what Christ has done for those who believe, how can we not shout for joy at His redeeming work!
