“What a glory there is in our Lord’s resurrection, when we further remember that he ever liveth to make intercession for us, and, therefore, he is able to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him! The fullness of salvation comes to us because he has risen from the dead, and is now making intercession for the transgressors. O brethren, the resurrection of Jesus is bright as the sun with glory! Faith in it thrills our hearts. Well might each line of our hymn end with a Hallelujah. When we say one to another, “The Lord is risen indeed”, we feel like singing all the time, for now our faith is not vain, we are not in our sins, and those who have fallen asleep have not perished.”

Matthew Henry, says of his father Phillip, that every Lord’s Day, his father’s greeting was, “He is risen, He is risen indeed!”
