It is Easter Morning. What joy has captured my heart this day! Our hope is real. Our Champion has returned from the battle field victorious. All our enemies lay slaughtered, left to rot in the sun.
As I gather my thoughts for today's service of worship I have just taken a few minutes to read a sermon that Charles Spurgeon preached concerning the tomb of Jesus. The line that lingers in my head reads something like this: "The tomb of despair and sorrow has become the gate to heaven." My heart is ready to worship.
