Christ Rose So That We My Live!!!
 
He is not here, but is risen! Luke 24:6
 
I recommend reading Luke 24.
 
Robert Lowry was born in Pennsylvania in 1826. After his conversion at age seventeen, he joinedBaptist church. He enrolled in the University of Lewisburg (now Bucknell University). He pastored churches in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. He also taught at Bucknell and also served as its chancellor. He gained a reputation for keen biblical scholarship and powerful, picturesque preaching. Lowery is best known for his personal gospel songs. He wrote the hymn, “Christ Arose!” in 1874 during Easter season. Some of his other hymns are “Nothing but the Blood,” “Shall We Gather at the River” and “Where Is My Wandering Boy Tonight?”
 
My prayer for the week:
Dear Lord, thank you for being with us every moment of every day. Your love never ends. Your uplifting arms give us strength to face and meet the demands of our daily challenges. We enjoy serving You and  bringing others to know You. We sing and jump for joy in knowing You are with us at all times. Amen
