More on Easter 2008

Note to self:

Don't wait until after church, after lunch, and after egg hunting to take pictures. You know where that puts you ?

Nap time.

I'd say these turned out pretty well, considering I learned this lesson by experience!

I mentioned earlier wanting to share about our Pastor's Easter sermon.

He read from John chapter 20 when the women had come to the tomb and found it empty. All but Mary had left. She didn't realize she was talking to Jesus; she thought he was the gardener.

The key verse was this one:
"Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou?" John 20:15a

Bro. Bryan made some very good points stemming from these two questions.

He said if you don't have Jesus as your Savior, it is easy to know why you weep. You weep because you have no peace.

Saved people should have no need to weep in despair, but we should weep for 2 other reasons:
1 - weep for the lost
2 - weep for joy for what Jesus has done for us.

The 'whom seekest thou' should be fairly easy to guess what the answer should be.
There is nothing this world has to offer that is worth our time, attention, and devotion more than Jesus.
"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Matthew 6:33
